Popular Host and Box Office star Vice Ganda is no longer under the management of columnist/host/manager Ogie Diaz.
Here’s an excerpt via Manila Bulletin:
OGIE DIAZ, the manager on VICE GANDA’s out from his management:
Talent manager and occasional actor Ogie Diaz has parted ways with Vice Ganda.
Diaz confirmed the matter via his podcast, “Vibes Tayo,” Nov. 22, saying the decision is a “necessity” for both of them.
“’Yun po ang tamang gawin, at ‘yun po ang dapat at nararapat na maganap sa sitwasyon namin,” said he.
Diaz didn’t give details on what caused the severance of their partnership.
“Ang importante, masaya ako, masaya siya. Gano’n,” he said.
Diaz revealed that it was done with formality and in the presence of ABS-CBN channel head, Cory Vidanes.
“Sa harap ni Tita Cory kami ay nagkapaliwanagan, nagkapalitan ng panig ni Vice Ganda,” he related.
“So, nag-come up kami sa isang desisyon. And we have mutually agreed, kami ni Vice, na mag-separate na. Maghiwalay na.”
According to Diaz, Deo Endrinal will now manage Vice Ganda in behalf of ABS-CBN.
Seemingly feeling the need familiarize his audience as to who Endrinal is, he said, “Si Deo Endrinal ay business unit head ng mga programang teleserye [of ABS CBN] . Yung ‘Ikaw Ay Pag-ibig,’ ‘Budoy’ ni Gerald Anderson… Marami, ‘yun ang mga hawak ni Deo. Siya rin ang manager ni Kris Aquino. Si Kris Aquino na kaibigan din ni Vice,” he said.
“So siya [Vice Ganda] ngayon ay being managed by ABS-CBN management. Hindi po Star Magic. ABS-CBN po,” he added.
Diaz maintained that he is happy with the decision.
“Kahit siya ay ima-manage ng ABS, go! Okay lang po sa akin. Walang problema,” he said.
But Diaz was candid enough to admit that the matter will definitely affect their friendship.
“Siyempre, kahit konti, meron na kami nung…kahit konti meron nang…nakakahiya na hihingi ako ng advice sa kanya o hihingi siya ng advice sa akin. Medyo may ano na ‘yun,” he said.
In the course of the discussion, Diaz addressed some of his other talents including Marissa Sanchez, Boom Labrusca, Lloyd Zaragoza, and Paolo Serrano.
“Hoy kayo, ha. Wala tayong kontrata lahat. Basta kung maisipan n’yong magpaalam na sa akin, just let me know and I will let you go,’” he said.
In parting, Diaz shared his wish for his erstwhile ward.
“Sana mas lumaki pa siyang artista. Sana matupad pa niya kung ano ang minimithi niya sa buhay. Habang ako rin, e, patuloy pa rin ang buhay.”
Vice Ganda hasn’t issued a statement on the matter as of this writing.
