Just so we're clear, it's not going to be a Tabing Ilog reunion (yet). It's not a new movie, either. Instead, the former love team will be starring in an upcoming episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya. No plot details have been released, but the episode will air this Saturday (June 27).
In an interview with PEP.ph, Vice Ganda said he apologized to designer Veejay Floresca for the Valkyrie "No Cross-Dressing" incident. "Nag-apologize ako sa kanya, tapos sabi niya nag-a-apologize din siya dahil ‘di niya akalain na lalaki nang ganito," he said. "Sabi ko, okay lang naman. This is an opportunity, magandang opportunity ito."
Vice said he felt offended by the policy and added, "No-no sa akin 'yong 'no cross-dressing policy.' Hindi na puwede yun, ang luma-luma na [...] Sabi ko, if Valkyrie implements this kind of policy, I will pull out my very small share. Ang liit lang naman ng share ko diyan."
