On April 19, PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Anne Curtis at her launch party as the newest ambassador for Avon cosmetics’ new Shine Attract lipstick line.
In an open forum with the press after the short program, the actress-host shared the latest updates about her current and upcoming projects.
NO ISSUES WITH THE IT’S SHOWTIME FAMILY. Anne once again clarified that there is no truth to the rumored rift between her It’s Showtime co-host Vice Ganda and the show’s director Bobet Vidanes.
According to previous reports, Direk Bobet was believed to have resigned from the show due to a misunderstanding with Vice.
Rumor has it that the comedian has changed his ways since the success of his movie Praybeyt Benajmin, which turned out to be the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.
Anne was asked by the entertainment press whether she’s had any bad experience with Vice on the set.
She said, “No, wala naman. I mean, meron din kaming mga issues ni Vice, pero hindi seryoso.
“Alam mo iyong nag-aasaran kami? Pero wala pa iyong tulad ng sinasabi nila na pikunan na serious na it caused a big fight and commotion. Wala."
With regards to the issue between Vice and Direk Bobet, Anne had this to say: “Wala namang issue so I really don’t know where it’s coming from.
“But you know, I think it’s all part of the industry. As always, they’ll always have something to say.
“So, as of now, it’s safe to say na walang issue.
"We’re all working as a family, 'tulad kanina, ang saya saya namin so wala, walang issue.”
RIDING THE MRT AGAIN. As Anne puts it, the set of It’s Showtime remains to be fun and peachy, which is primarily why she is always excited to go to work every morning.
In fact, she would make that extra effort just to get to the set on time.
On April 17, Anne—who was already running late coming from the set of her new soap opera—bravely took an MRT ride from Boni Avenue station to Quezon Avenue station.
