MANILA – Alex Gonzaga stressed that she did not mean to offend anyone when she playfully touched a part of Pia Wurtzbach’s left breast while she and her co-hosts were interviewing the beauty queen for “ASAP Chillout.”
Although the interview happened back in December, it was only late last month when the clip became viral and made the rounds online.
“Talagang nahihiwagaan ako talaga. Sa taas lang naman [ng dibdib] saka isang beses lang naman. Sorry kasi nadala ko 'yun. Kasi ginagawa ko talaga 'yun sa normal. Like kay Angeline [Quinto], Angelica Panganiban. Eh first time ko nakita si Pia,” she told entertainment site PEP.
While there were netizens who found her gesture funny, Gonzaga acknowledged that there were also others who did not like what she did.
“Mostly lahat naman natutuwa. Natawa naman. Pero siyempre may mga talagang sensitive na tao. Naisip ko, pero 'di naman kasi big deal, kasi kahit mommy ko, lagi kong ginaganun," she said.
Gonzaga also emphasized that she did not do it on national television.
“Siyempre may mga sensitive na tao na talagang tingin nila nabastos ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin sa kanila. Saka hindi sa national TV 'yun; sa online lang 'yun," she said.
When asked if she also apologized to Wurtzbach, Gonzaga said: “No, kasi biro lang naman talaga. Actually, nagtawanan nga kami after. Hindi ko lang alam kung na-offend siya."
