Following the report from Pep.ph, Curtis once again turned to the microblogging site Twitter to explain her side of the story.
On Friday afternoon, Curtis posted on official Twitter account: “Read some articles & whoever the source was, got some details wrong. So I'd like to explain.”
“Firstly, if you read my twitter timeline I didn't arrive late at 8pm. I was asked by UST people to be there between 7-7:30 and they had told my Road Manager as soon as I get there it would be my turn.. If you want an exact time I was there at 7:10 according to driver. O diba? Join din ang driver ko sa drama. Haha. No, but seriously, they told me naman since TV5 people were performing already they opted to put me after TV5 artists & before the GMA artists.”
As for her claim that she arrived earlier than the GMA artists who were also set to perform that night, Curtis also had an apt explanation.
She tweeted, “What I meant when I said nauna ako sa GMA Artists dun was that the USTv staff called me to go on stage coz it was my turn. When I got backstage pababa na ung Artists of TV5 and I didn't see anyone from GMA except the lady representing GMA.”
Curtis also belied the source of Pep.ph’s claim that the GMA-7 staff gave her an explanation regarding the refusal to let her go up on stage.
“She DID NOT explain anything to me,” Curtis said.
“I didn't even quite get what she tried to say coz she said this while turning around me. So ang hirap intindihan kung d ka din sinabihan ng maayos diba? But to clear it NO ONE from the GMA staff explained anything to me as it was said in the article.”
According to Curtis, she had no intention or whatsoever to twit the GMA staff and artists with her posts last Thursday.
“To clear it, I'm not dissing the network or the artists of GMA. As I said in my tweet don't get mad at the GMA staff they probably had their own reasons. But if I was called by the staff of USTv and was already at the side of stage waiting to be called maybe they/she could've taken that into consideration also.”
She said that she was only trying to explain to her followers, particularly those who were expecting her to perform that night, why she wasn't able to set foot on stage.
She explained, “The only reason why I tweeted last night was because pinalabas na ako ng USTv staff to perform so nakita na ako, mas nakakagulat if bigla naman ako nawala. Its only proper I explain to them what the reason was why I left. I owe that to the Thomasians who tweeted & were waiting for me.”
