Comedian Vice Ganda knows how it feels to be cash-strapped and this is why he is careful about how he spends his hard-earned money.

“Yung fear mo na bumalik sa hirap,” Vice Ganda when asked about what motivates him to invest and save up.

The “It’s Showtime” host admitted that as a celebrity, he mainly splurges on clothes and shoes.

Outfit ako talaga. Ang bakla naman madamit, shoes. Maliiit lang ng fraction ng kinikita ko ang ginagastos ko talaga,” the openly gay comedian said.

In the list of top individual taxpayers recently released by the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Vice Ganda, whose real name is Jose Marie Viceral, placed 137th for paying over P12 million in income taxes.

Vice Ganda also revealed that he may have found his dream home. “Siguro by the end of this year mayroon akong pinaplanong bilhin,” he said.

Meanwhile, Vice Ganda also said he is happy with the success of ABS-CBN’s noontime show “It’s Showtime,” which celebrated its fourth anniversary last week

Ako personally hindi ko ini-expect na magpo-four years ang ‘Showtime’ pero nakikita ko na magtatagal pa,” he said. (MNS)
