Angel Aquino makes clear that all was peaceful during the shoot of a commercial she did with Gretchen Barretto, Dawn Zulueta, and Ruffa Gutierrez. She also says that she did not witness any verbal exchange between Gretchen and Dawn.
“Meron bang away? Alam mo kasi, nung nag-su-shoot kami, wala namang away na nangyari,” recalls Angel. The actress-model was present last night, November 28, at the screening of her award-winning film Donsol, which was remastered and transferred to 35mm Technicolor print.
“Ngayon, nagugulat ako na there are news and talks that there’s a rift between Dawn and Gretchen,” says one of the four celebrity endorsers of a shampoo brand.
Angel continues: “During the shoot, we were all friends. We were all just enjoying ourselves. We were being beautiful kasi ang haba ng buhok namin eh. Nakakagulat lang.”
Angel hopes that the misunderstanding finally comes to a close. “I really hope it doesn’t go that far kasi wala namang dapat pag-usapan.”
She goes as far as to defend Gretchen for bringing her clothes and shoes to the shoot. “I cannot blame her for doing that. Unang-una, we were asked to bring all our stuff, na lahat ng pwede naming dalhin, dalhin namin. Para at least, it would be our style. We would be comfortable wearing our clothes in our shoot. So she probably brought them para tulong na rin niya dun sa aming stylist.”
Angel also has good words for Dawn. “Meanwhile, si Dawn naman was just keeping to herself. She was very quiet. You could actually forget that she’s there kasi she doesn’t draw attention to herself.”
“If you saw it the way I did during our shooting, parang wala namang nangyari,” concludes Angel, who says she is definitely proud to be part of the shampoo commercial with the "three diyosas."
