Vhong Navarro’s ongoing recovery from his ordeal with Deniece Cornejo and Cedric Lee didn’t keep him from giving a birthday message to “It’s Showtime” co-host Anne Curtis on Monday.
Navarro surprised Curtis by calling into the program and wishing her a happy birthday.
Navarro, who was in the hospital for over a week following the attack, also apologized for not making it to her party on Sunday night.
“You’re here in my heart,” he told her, reported ABS-CBN. “It has always been so.”
Curtis assured Navarro that she understands why he didn’t attend.
“As long as you’re safe,” she said.
Navarro even cracked a joke about waiting for Curtis at her apartment, a reference to the encounter he had with Cornejo and Lee last month.
“I was just given the address; if you like, I’ll visit,” he said.
Navarro hasn’t been on the noontime show since he was attacked.
