Vivian Velez wants Cristine Reyes to ‘drown in own vomit’
Veteran actress Vivian Velez has reacted on the statement issued by her “Tubig at Langis” co-star Cristine Reyes whom she accused of being rude to her.
In a statement, Velez told the Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) that she is now in the process of moving on from her spat with Reyes.
Not mincing her words, Velez said on Wednesday: “Let her drown in her own vomit. I’m taking the high road and moving on.”
The issue between the two actresses started when Velez vented out on Facebook on Sunday that she will be quitting the afternoon show because she was humiliated by a co-star. She later confirmed that it was Reyes who treated her rudely on set.
In her statement, Reyes lengthily narrated her side. She said that it all started when she had to share a dressing room with Velez. When the veteran actress was being asked to be transferred by the showrunners to her own dressing room, Velez supposedly threw a fit and accused Reyes of booting her out.
The issue on the dressing room, Reyes said, went unresolved. In another instance, Velez and her make-up artist supposedly charged toward Reyes after they heard her singing Avril Lavigne’s “Goodbye.”
Reyes has since apologized to Velez.
With regard to the statement issued by the “Tubig at Langis” production team where they shielded Reyes from blame and owned up to the miscommunication between the two actresses, Velez said: “Understandably, they have a show to protect. But I stand firm with my truth.” AJH/RAM
