“Hindi ko naman naging intention na directly po mag-offend. It was really [meant] towards Vice, it was a joke. Siguro, dapat mas naging sensitive ako kung may mga issues. Kaya I just want to say sorry, Maja,” says Anne Curtis.

“It was really [meant] towards Vice, it was a joke,” said It’s Showtime co-host Anne Curtis in her brief apology to fellow Kapamilya star Maja Salvador.

Anne apologized for making a joke, which might have offended the Ina Kapatid Anak actress, during the “Sine Mo ‘To” segment of It’s Showtime yesterday, January 23.

In the role-playing segment of the ABS-CBN noontime show, Vice was singing with one of the male performers selected from the audience.

Vhong Navarro cut in and asked Jhong Hilario, “Mahal na hari, sino ‘to?”

Jhong answered, “Siya si Cirinderella.”

Vhong said, “Hindi ‘yan si Cirinderella. Siya si Allan... Allan-di mo!”

After that, Anne said about the comedian, “Oy, hindi. Siya yata si Maja... Maja-rot ka!”

Everyone in the audience laughed at Anne’s joke while Vice commented, ‘Ay, statement ‘yan! Statement ‘yan, ha!”

Then, Vice added, “Ako, hindi ako si Maja. Ako si Kim.”

Before Vice could even continue, Vhong immediately said, “Ikaw si Kim... Kim-Kong.”

Vice agreed, “Oo, ako si Kim-Kong!”

Because of her actions yesterday, Anne took the opportunity to say sorry to Maja during the “Sine Mo ‘To” segment today.

She said, “Before anything else, bago tayo mag-joke time at mag-playtime dito, gusto ko muna mag-publicly apologize kung may na-offend ako kahapon sa joke ko.

“Hindi ko naman naging intention na directly po mag-offend.

“It was really [meant] towards Vice, it was a joke.

“Siguro, dapat mas naging sensitive ako kung may mga issues.

“Kaya I just want to say sorry, Maja.”



KIM-MAJA MISUNDERSTANDING. Former best friends ang Ina Kapatid Anak co-stars Kim Chiu and Maja Salvador recently had a misunderstanding because of the latter’s rumored relationship with Gerald Anderson.

The Budoy actor is the former boyfriend of Kim.

In a recent press conference for Ina Kapatid Anak, Kim revealed that she is disappointed because, “Yung taong sinabihan ko nung time na down ako dun sa… yung parang kinain niya lang yung sinabi niya.”

Kim was obviously referring to Maja, who served as a shoulder-to-cry-on when Kim was healing from her breakup with Gerald.
