MANILA - In the spirit of fairness, "Tonight with Boy Abunda" sought out Alex Gonzaga's side on the infamous "scratching" incident with Luis Manzano.
Speaking with host Boy Abunda on Friday, the 28-year-old Gonzaga claimed that she was provoked into "scratching" the "Pilipinas Got Talent" and "Family Feud" host.
She narrated that it all began when Manzano, whom she considers as her brother, invited her to a gym.
"So nag Muay Thai kami," she said. "Habang nagpla-planking ako, nasa last 10 seconds na ako, hirap na hirap na ako, iyong t-shirt niya na pawis na pawis, inilagay niya sa bibig ko."
"Nainom ko ang pawis niya! Ang sinabi niya nakikita niya kasi na kulang ako sa electrolytes. Pinainom niya yung pawis niya sa akin," she continued. "So sa sobrang inis ko, tumayo ako at hinablot ko siya."
She did not mean to, but Gonzaga, who "scratched" Manzano with such ferocity, "crippled" the television host.
"So itong si Kuya Luis, nagte-text pa sa akin na hindi raw siya makagalaw dahil sa kalmot ko --pagiging OA lang namin magkaibigan. One time daw hindi siya makatayo talaga, kailangan pang pumunta ng mga nurse," Gonzaga said.
Manzano then did what anyone would do in his situation, and that is to call his parents. For the past few days, both Vilma Santos and Edu Manzano have sent video messages to Gonzaga calling her out for "scratching" their son.
