In an interview on the “Punto Por Punto” segment of ABS-CBN’s morning show “Umagang Kay Ganda,” Alcid said he did not aggravate Rama into an encounter.
He claimed that he even avoided Rama when he saw the talent manager at the rest room in Heritage.
“Bigla akong tumalikod without uttering a word, without making dirty faces...tapos hinabol niya ko...hinampas niya ko tapos pinagmumumura niya ko,” he told the segment host, Anthony Taberna.
As of this posting, Alcid has not filed any suit against Rama.
Meanwhile, Rama in an interview with Korina Sanchez-Roxas on radio station DZMM on Monday said she has no reason to assault Alcid; she was allegedly provoked by the latter to do so.
“Meron siyang sinabi sa akin. May dala siyang portfolio na itim, ginaganon niya sa akin ‘yon eh. Alam mo naman ang mga Bisaya hindi puwedeng maunahan. Bago mo ko unahan, unahan muna kita,” Rama said on-air.
Rama admitted that she’s “squatter” and “bastos,” but for a reason.
“Lumalabas ang pagka-squatter ko, pagka-walang class ko ‘pag inumpisahan mo ‘ko, lalong-lalo na sa pamilya ko, lalong-lalo na sa mga anak ko,” said the talent manager.
In a related development, a press group called Alab ng Mamamahayag has declared Rama “persona non grata” and an “enemy of press freedom.”
ALAM chairman Jerry Yap reportedly urged media organizations to “condemn” Rama’s actions and “boycott” press releases and news related to her family.
