Binibining Pilipinas Miss Sorsogon Maria Isabela Galeria apologized to Anne Curtis for their Question and Answer moment that has gone viral. Anne shared her kind reply.
During the Question and Answer portion of the Binibining Pilipinas 2019, host Anne Curtis found herself in a rather odd situation.
While candidates were expected to accept the microphone to answer the question, Maria Isabela didn’t. Hence, Anne was left with no choice but to hold the microphone for her during the entire duration of her Q&A turn in the pageant.
The moment easily went viral as netizens poked fun at how the beautiful Anne was made a “microphone holder.”
Even Anne’s sister Jasmine Curtis-Smith also tweeted and said, “Ngalay na si Ateh.”
The moment didn’t escape Anne’s It’s Showtime’s family.
Vice Ganda made a hilarious impersonation of Anne and Miss Sorsogon. Vice said, “Tawang tawa talaga ako kay Miss Sorsogon. Puma-mewang si girl, hindi kinuha ang mic.”
On Instagram, Maria Isabela posted an apology and explanation to Anne.
She wrote, “So today I woke up as a meme. I honestly had no bad intentions towards [Anne Curtis]. I was just really nervous and was concentrating to answer the question being asked.”
“Anne is a superstar and was very kind, polite and gracious to all of us. It was a pleasure and inspiring to be in her presence,” she added.
Anne brushed off the blunder and posted a reply. She said, “Hey gorgeous! Don’t worry about it and don’t mind the memes. All of you were nervous and had to concentrate on one of the most crucial parts of the pageant – the Q &A.”
“It was an honour to be of service to you and all the beautiful candidates. Ganyan lang talaga minsan. May mga kulit moments na hindi palalampasin ng Madlang People. Congratulations on your performance last night!” she added.
