Vice Ganda’s grandmother, Rosita Borja, passed away Saturday night, December 31, months after she had a stroke.
The TV host-comedy actor informed his followers on Twitter on Sunday, January 1, about his grandmother’s passing.
“She used to lull me when I was a kid. Now its her turn to rest. Sleep tight Mamang,” Vice Ganda tweeted.
On the same day, he also tweeted that he’s offering the day’s episode of his show “Gandang Gabi Vice (GGV) ” to his grandmother.
“I offer tonight's episode of GGV to my MAMANG! Thanks so much for continuously supporting the show.”
Vice Ganda’s taped interview on “The Buzz,” which aired on Sunday, January 1, was made days before his grandmother’s death.
“D'Buzz interview was taped few days ago. Mamang passed away last night. Thanks so much for your prayers,” Vice tweeted on Sunday, January 1.
In his taped interview on “The Buzz”, Vice Ganda said he is already prepared if ever his grandmother passes away.
“Sabi ko na lang sa kanya, masyado kasing selfish kung sabihin ko na wag syang umalis eh nakikitang kong nahihirapan na ang lola ko. Kaya ang sabi ko, ‘Okay na ako Nay. Alis ka na, punta ka na sa pupuntahan mo,’” Vice Ganda said in tears.
In January 2’s episode of “Showtime,” host Anne Curtis extended condolences to Vice Ganda and his family in behalf of the show’s stars and staff.
Vice Ganda thanked those who condoled with him.
“Ako po at ang buo kong pamilya ay malugod na nagpapasalamat para sa inyong pakikidalamhati sa pagpanaw ng aking Mamang. Maraming salamat po,” he tweeted last Jan. 2.
