Vice Ganda continues to shine and inspire a lot of Filipino audience with Reina Ng Tahanan – The top-rating segment on “It’s Showtime” which Vice Ganda helped conceptualize and develop along with the staff of “It’s Showtime”. Since the segment aired few months ago, it has been the talk of the town every conversation on social media. Vice Ganda one again proved that her heart is precious and soft particularly when it comes to mothers. With the segment, a lot of mothers are now empowered to carry on with their role as the light of their respective families.
Recently, Vice Ganda cried after a Reinanay contestant shared her wish should she sees a shooting star. The Reinanay contestant answered and said, “Sana hopefully dumating siya (ex-husband). Uuwi siya sa bahay at tatanggapin ko siya ng buong puso.” Vice then shed a tear and hoped that the contestant wish would come true one day.

There is one story of a Reinanay contestant wherein she had to sell an insurance that tear me apart. Lian Buan from Rappler also watched the episode.
On Showtime, a reinanay sells her funeral insurance just to get by, says the logic is, if she dies, because of the pandemic, she will be cremated anyway.
Ganyan ang dinaranas ng mga Pilipino. Kaya lahat ng klaseng pagkasakim, pagpapabaya, pananahimik at pagtatakip ay nakakahiya.

Vice Ganda shared how important for all mothers to be honored this way. “I really wish to honor all mothers, get their interest, and pay tribute to them…because its really my passionate advocacy to promote the love and care and respect to all mothers. I also fought for the talent portion of the segment dahil madami silang mga kakayanan na di na nila nagagawa nung naging nanay na sila. Their talents took a backseat in their lives.
Vice Ganda recalls how they were planning to pitch the idea to the management, “Una ayaw ng management na gumawa kami ng another pageant. Kung Pageant na naman daw, ‘wag na lang. But I insisted on a pageant – but not a conventional one – iba ito. Iba ang Q&A portion namin – di mangagaling sa judges ang tanong. Ang tanong ay mangagaling sa isang taong connected sa Nanay na contestant at ang tanong na ito ay tungkol sa isang issue sa pagitan nilang dalawa na dapat ma-resolve at masagot. Because of the unique Q&A portion of the segment, naging very personal yung pageant para siyang nagging pageant/reality show.
ABS-CBN Management eventually approved the concept.”
In Reina Ng Tahanan, Vice Ganda gives her input yet she reiterates that the segment is really conceptualized and developed in close collaboration with the staff of “It’s Showtime” – it’s a team effort. Indeed, Rena ng Tahanan is one of the most successful and empowering segments in the history of noontime show programming!
Speaking of smashing success, Vice Ganda is set to open the final quarter of the year with an explosive, brand new concert titled Vax Ganda: A Dose Of Laughter that happens on October 15 and 16 at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California and on October 24 in Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
