Anne Curtis grateful for club incident clarification
by FFE Entertainment News Staff
TV host Phoemela Baranda finally broke her silence regarding the club incident where Anne Curtis allegedly pointed a finger at her and exclaimed “I can buy you, your friends, and this club!”
In a television interview, the 33-year-old TV host denied the story circulating about what happened last 23 November.
“No, she didn’t say, ‘I can buy you, your friends, and this club.’ Hindi niya sa akin sinabi ‘yon. Walang gano’n na nangyari o sinabi si Anne. Hindi niya rin ako dinuro,” Phoemela said.
Phoemela added that Anne was not angry at her but to other people that night.
“She said something to me, but because galit na siya sa ibang individuals doon. And naintindihan ko na sometimes ‘pag galit ka na, you know, kahit kaigiban mo na ‘yung kaharap mo, nasasabi mo ‘yung galit mo doon sa kaibigan. And I totally understand that,” Phoemela said.
The model/ TV host’s statement is contrary to JR Isaac’s account. JR, John Lloyd Cruz and another friend of the two were allegedly slapped by Anne while the actress was drunk.
On the question regarding what really happened that led to Anne’s encounter with John Lloyd and his companions, Phoemela said she can only talk about what happened between her and Anne.
“I’m not in the position to make kwento or say kung ano ang nangyari doon sa may banyo because I was in the other side of the VIP area. Kung ano man ang nangyari, I can only say kung ano ang nangyari sa amin ni Anne,” Baranda said.
Shortly after the interview aired, Anne took it to twitter to thank Phoemela for clearing the issue.
Phoemela said that she already put the incident behind her and hopes that the public will finally move on as well.
“Lahat na ng tao may kanya-kanya nang version ng napakaliit na sinabi ni Anne,” she said. “Sobrang wala na. And a few hours after, Anne apologized. I’ve moved on, and I hope the people move on na rin.”
