Ion Perez used to cry about his mom being called a gold digger due to his relationship with Vice Ganda.
“Sinabi nila na mukha daw pera nanay ko.”
This is said to be the most painful thing people have said to Ion Perez since he and Vice Ganda revealed their relationship to the public.
In the new vlog of Its Showtime host released yesterday, January 21, the two played “Jenga challenge with a twist” where each challenge has questions and dare.
Their challenge went smoothly.
At the end of the vlog, Vice tells Ion to answer some more questions.
“Ano ang pinakamasakit na sinabi ng ibang tao tungkol sa relasyon niyo?” one question to them.
Vice laughed about it and said “Bagay sa ‘yo yung tanong. Ikaw naka-experience niyan nang bonggang-bonggang major to the severest level” referring to Ion.
“Yung sinabihan din yung nanay ko na mukhang pera, yun yung pinakamasakit sa akin. Sa akin, okay lang eh, tanggap ko ‘yun,” revealed Ion.
He went on to defend his mom, stressing that she’s not the kind of person.
“Pero yung sa nanay ko, eh, nakasama ko ‘yun. Alam ko naman ‘yung ugali ‘nun, nakasama ko sa hirap eh. Hindi naman ganun. ‘Yun yung pinakamasakit na narinig ko sa tao na sinabi nila na mukha daw pera nanay ko.”
“Ngayon tinatawanan niya na lang, dati iniiyak niya yan,” Vice Ganda said after Ion laughed at their banter.
When the relationship between the two broke up, many doubted and said that Ion may be chasing money from the TV host-comedian.
Despite being targets of criticisms, the two continue to open up more about their relationship online. They celebrated their second anniversary as a couple last October.
