Boy Abunda irked by Allen Iverson’s failure to show up in interview
MANILA, Philippines — Television host Boy Abunda expressed disappointment over former NBA superstar Allen Iverson’s failure to show up in an interview apparently due to heavy traffic in Metro Manila.
In the Monday episode of the talk show he is co-hosting with Kris Aquino, Abunda said that he was supposed to tape an interview with Iverson for his other TV show “The Bottomline.”
Abunda clarified though that he was not blaming the former Philadelphia 76ers guard for not making it to the interview but instead pointed the finger at the people handling the basketball star’s schedule.
Abunda said Iverson’s camp thought they could make it to the ABS-CBN studios in Quezon City in 30 minutes from a hotel in Pasay City.
“This is one of those interviews that are not meant to happen,” he said.
Iverson is in Manila for a charity basketball game.
