Basketball player Ricci Rivero apologized to actress Liza Soberano for his recent interview regarding his stand in doing a project with the actress. In an interview, Ricci was asked if he is willing to be the leading man of Liza in a movie project.
Ricci answered: “Depende po sa schedule ko. Sobrang depende po sa schedule ko. I mean, Liza is Liza.. Given a chance, and the free ‘yung schedule, why not? Pero mahirap po kasi pa-start na rin ako ulit.”
The reply got the attention of netizens describing it as disrespectful and arrogant.
Ogie Diaz, manager of Liza shared during his ‘MAMA OGS SAYS…’ section on Facebook that Ricci already apologized to him and to Liza for his statement.
“Wa echos, hindi ako nainis kay Ricci no’n o nayabangan sa kanya. Kaya ang sabi ko lang, iinom muna ako ng tatlong litro ng tubig. Actually, kahit si Liza, nu’ng kinwento ko to sa kanya, nangiti na lang siya.
To be fair to Ricci, nag-text siya sa akin and he said, “Tito Ogie, super sorry po for what happened. I didn’t mean to say that in a bad way, but I was just trying to say that I don’t wanna go between Enrique and Liza because I respect the loveteams in the industry and I even said that Liza will always be Liza– so that simply means that she is already established as Liza. And who am I to say no? But I know it’s probably the way I said that statement so I’m sorry for that po. I hope you understand and not only you, but especially Liza… I look up to Liza rin naman po and I think you know that. I asked for a picture pa nga po, di ba?” Yes, when he saw Liza sa “Ms. Possibilities,” nagpa-pic siya. Di ko lang alam kung pinost niya or ig stories.”
