Just as everyone in the Philippine showbiz thought that nothing would make it right between ABS-CBN comedian Vice Ganda and boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao, Vice Ganda reaches out to Pacquiao by telephone on Thursday to try to patch things up between the two.
In this surprising move, Cristy Cabral, Vice Ganda’s manager contacted Pacquiao by phone and made arrangements for the two celebrities to talk and iron out their differences. Cabral said that it was Vice Ganda’s idea and was surprised when he received a phone call from an emotional Vice Ganda around 3:00AM early Friday morning.
“He was difficult to understand, he may have been crying”, said Cabral.
Cabral was asked by Vice Ganda to contact Pacquiao that same morning to make plans as soon as possible so the two can meet and put an end to their squabble. He added that he got up early Friday and immediately contacted Pacquiao, who was elated to hear about Vice Ganda reaching out.
Plans were immediately made for the two to spend some time in an undisclosed location.
However, a reporter at ABS-CBN contacted Pacquiao through a mutual acquaintance and confirmed that Vice Ganda and him had indeed spoken. Pacquiao said that they have made arrangements to meet at the Luneta Park on Tuesday, and agreed to wear neutral matching outfits while they have their talk and walk in the park.
They also plan to go to an unnamed exclusive restaurant, where Vice Ganda had planned a quiet dinner for two, prepared by Vice Ganda’s chef-friend.
Both will cap the night with a few games of bowling — which is something both surprisingly learned that they both like — and maybe a movie after.
Ii was not immediately known if Vice Ganda is picking up Pacquiao or if Pacquiao would just come over to Vice Ganda’s Place.
