“I apologized, we apologized, right after po we were all laughing that night,” said Gretchen. “This is between Patty Pineda, Mimi Que, myself, and jmula because si jmula po ang nagpadala ng request or ng mga kanyang wishes.”

“It was very rude, I admit. It was very inappropriate, unlady-like for us to behave that way. Sorry po at minsan nakakalimutan ko po na 48 years old na ako and I should be behaving my age. But talagang sadyang immature pa rin po ako and I am very sorry.”

“I’d like to make a public apology, although Jo-Ann Mula already accepted our apology that very night.”
