PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Is it true that Enrique Gil and his leading lady Linn Oeymo are fighting on the set of their leading youth-oriented program Good Vibes? During a recent taping for their show, Linn was seen "slapping" Enrique after a take.
"In an interview with the teen actress, Linn said she was taken aback when the young actor appeared to be about to kiss her. But she also clarified that the slap wasn’t hard, or even a serious one.
"I wasn’t offended. I just got a little uneasy. I want to apologize to the fans but as far as Enrique and I are concerned, we are ok, we’re friends," she said.
"Enrique corroborated Linn’s statement and even narrated how the incident occurred.
"What was going to happen in the scene was Geleen (Linn) will finally take me, as Troy, to be her boyfriend. After saying our lines I felt like our faces were coming closer and closer to each other. So I asked our director, ’Are we supposed to kiss?’ Linn, being younger than I am, was surprised about my comment and laughed at me," he said.
"Linn isn’t the only one who’ll have a kilig moment this week. In the coming episode, Maribeth (Devon Seron) will discover a beautiful dress in her room. Find out which prince charming is waiting for her outside her door. Is it Gab (Ivan Dorschner) or Spencer (James Reid)?
"Meanwhile, Devon recalled feeling like a princess in real life. "After we got out of the Pinoy Big Brother house we were invited to the Star Magic Ball. I really dressed up and prepared for it. It was the first time too that a guy fetched me from home. It’s memorable because I had been used to being one of the boys," she shared.
"In the program, Devon and the gang will be informed about an ambitious idea from half-brothers Marc (Sam Concepcion) and Troy. Wanting to win in the Pilipinas Dance Challenge, the two are planning to form one super dance crew to strengthen their chances of moving forward in the contest.
"Find out if the members of former rival groups SinagDiwa and Bustamoves agree to dance together. Also watch out for the very first date between March and Ara (Yen Santos).
"With a good and relatable story, superb acting from its stars, awesome dance portions and lots of romantic or kilig scenes, Good Vibes once again ruled the national TV ratings last Sunday (July 17). The show got a 9.5 percent rating versus the 8.9 % rating of rival program Tween Hearts [according to Kantar Media data].
"Catch Good Vibes this Sunday (July 24) after ASAP Rocks on ABS-CBN."
