Ogie Diaz defended the GMA Network’s first-ever Gala Night after he revealed that there were rumors about the food served in the event.
The showbiz reporter and his co-hosts discussed the controversies behind the big gala last July 30 on his most recent vlog.
The trio mentioned an actress named Mariel Pamintuan, who made comments about the event’s food on a now-deleted TikTok video.
“May isang talent ng Sparkle, sinabi niya lasang liverspread yung pagkain,” he said.
Ogie added that while he heard the food wasn’t good, they had no way of verifying the speculations since they were not present at the event.
“Yung mga ganyang moment, normal yan. Kahit sa Star Magic Ball marami ring mga ganyang hanash. Natural na yan sa mga ball,” he explained.
In the same video, they praised the Kapuso network for its successful charity event.
The 52-year-old said: “Itong GMA, first time nila ginawa ito at in fairness successful na siya. Lalo na at para ito sa GMA Foundation yun.”
