He has been gone for over a month, and now he’s back.
Actor-tv host Vhong Navarro made his comeback to “It’s Showtime,” the widely popular noontime show of ABS-CBN, after a long absence.
Navarro was severely mauled by a group of men led by businessman Cedric Lee on January 22 for allegedly raping model Deniece Cornejo which left him badly bruised and with a broken nose, which required surgery.
He denied the rape accusation and has since filed several criminal cases against his attackers.
“It’s Showtime” hosts Anne Curtis, Billy Crawford, Karylle, Coleen Garcia, Jhong Hilario, Teddy Corpuz, Jugs Jugueta, Ryan Bang and Eric “Eruption” Tai, all wearing white shirts with the words “Welcome back Vhong” printed on them, welcomed their returning co-host.
After an introduction by co-host Anne Curtis and a short video featuring him, Vhong Navarro made his appearance on the stage of “It’s Showtime” and was warmly welcomed by his friends with a group hug.
