Ayaw ko talagang malagay [sa loob ngkabaong]. Alam mo yun, buhay pa ako,nasa loob ako ng kabaong. At saka alammo yung naco-confine ako sa loob [kabaong].

"Then, tumawag si Ms. Emerald[Suarez], yung [executive producer] namin, 'tapos nakikiusap, magandang kabaongnaman daw yung gagamitin—bago at magandang kabaong, sosyal, pangmayaman,[worth] one million pesos. Sabi ko,‘Kahit ano pang sabihin niyo, hindi n'yo ako mapapahiga diyan sa kabaong naiyan.'"

Still not convinced to do the scene,Director Jerry Lopez-Sineneng and the executive producer talked to her on thetaping day of that particular scene. So,Jodi was left with no choice but to agree. She added, "Wala na akong magawa, so I said 'Yes.'"

During the taping, Direk Jerry said that Jodi cried almost the entire day before shooting the scene.
