"SHOWTIME" resident judge Vice Ganda cleared all rumors that he will be leaving the talent-reality program.

Vice said it is true that he would leave "Showtime" but only for a couple of weeks to have his much-deserve break.

"Babalik po ako, hindi ako umalis, hindi ako tinanggal... magpapahinga lang po ako sandali at babalik din sa Showtime," he said.

Though on leave, Vice will still do some series of shows abroad and will think of new punch lines for his comeback.

For the meantime, he will be replaced by comedians Long Mejia and Brad Pete. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
