Both Alex Gonzaga and Luis Manzano have clarified that all is well between them following the actress’ joke about award-buying at the PMPC Star Awards for Movies last week.
In an interview with PUSH, Alex related that she immediately apologized to the PMPC for the off-color joke about Luis "buying" his Darling of the Press award.
“I really meant no harm… I apologized right away sa ating mga press people. I really love PMPC kasi ilang beses na rin naman na akong nakapag-host. Nanalo na din naman ako ng award… siyempre na-offend sila doon sa nasabi ko,” she said.
Meanwhile, Luis explained on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” yesterday, September 12, that they normally joke around like that.
“Kami ni Alex, ganyan talaga kami maglokohan, even worse behind the cameras,” he said. “I understand the sentiments of the press and the people there na it was a bit off… I understand din naman na ganun talaga kami maghiritan ni Alex.”
Luis continued, “On her behalf… sa mga na-offend sa PMPC I would like to apologize… she did not mean anything by it.”
Luis will be hosting the upcoming game show “I Can See Your Voice" where Alex is also a part of.
