Pero, ayon kay Shirley, hindi pa raw niya talent noon si Claudine.

Naroroon siya dahil "kliyente" niya ang ad agency na humawak ng TVC ng milk product.

Sa presscon kagabi na ginanap sa Taste of L.A. sa Tomas Morato, Quezon City, itinanggi rin ni Shirley na may insidenteng naganap sa pagitan nina Claudine at Carmina habang kinukunan ang nasabing commercial shoot.

Simula niya, "What prompted me to call this presscon is because of the column that Dolly Anne wrote which is totally untrue.

"What we're trying to do is to correct her.

"Like Carmina denied it, that something like that ever happened, that she has never walked out in her entire showbiz life.

"That was a correction because Dolly Anne, in her Facebook, apparently said she stands with the story because her source is the agency. 

"So, the agency reacted by writing her a formal letter correcting her again and giving her the facts of what happened.

"Well, let me tell you, unlike Dolly Anne, I checked our facts. 

"All of us have checked our facts before we even open our mouth."

CORRECTION. Diin pa ng talent manager, "The last time Claudine and Carmina were together in a TV endorsement shoot was three years ago.

"So, why create a story or a scene that has happened three years ago and concoct such a story after three years? 

"Which is, you know, you're all my friends... I understand, sometimes nakukuryente tayo sa mga impormasyon. 

"Normal yun sa trabaho natin, di ba? 

"Ang ano lang, to correct. Ang problema, bawal pala siyang [Dolly Anne] i-correct.

"Nang padalhan siya ng letter ng ad agency, e, bawal.
