Many wonder “how close is close” when it comes to popular comedian Vice Ganda and cager Calvin Abueva.

Speculations about it started last September when photos that show them together surfaced online.

Calvin denied they are an item in an interview with Boy Abunda few week backs. He reiterated he is just a close friend of the comedian and that Vice is a godfather of one of his kids.

Vice Ganda simply said he “makes me happy.”

They also got the online world talking when Calvin took off his red Phoenix jersey after losing in a game, then handed it to Vice. The “It’s Showtime” host responded by giving “The Beast” a kiss on the cheek.

“You’re the BEAST! And for me you’re the BEST!” Vice Ganda tweeted later.

Vice had proudly shared on national television – during a “Tawag Ng Tanghalan” episode — that Calvin is a good cook.” In the same portion, he casually confirmed having met his family.

Later on, the comedian was caught by co-host Mariel Rodriguez on the phone — just as they were about to take their turn on stage — talking to Calvin. The other hosts eventually spoke to the cager and requested him to send them one of his dishes.

According to Vice Ganda, Calvin is not afraid to be seen with him, unlike many of his other basketball player friends.

“Hindi kasi siya nahihiya na makita ng mga tao na malapit kami sa isa’t-isa dahil naniniwala siya na walang mali,” he said.
