Singer-comedienne Ethel Booba finally broke her silence regarding the feud with "Wowowillie" host Willie Revillame a month ago over the results of a costume contest.
During the presscon of her new show in TV5 "Boracay Bodies," Ethel denied she shouted at Willie and even pointed out it was him who was lying.
"Witness ang mga staff at si Ate Gay. Alam nilang walang sigawan na nangyari," she said, as posted in Yahoo! Philippines.
Willie lambasted Ethel and Ate Gay during a live episode of the said show, saying the two showed unprofessionalism when they vented their ire backstage after losing in a contest.
After the incident, Ethel resigned from "Wowowillie" while Ate Gay came back a day after.
Ethel admitted she never expected Willie to scold her on live TV, and thought she and Willie were in good terms after Willie said he will "protect" her from negative Twitter messages.
"Feeling ko okay kami," she said. "Sabi pa nga niya, 'wag kang mag-alala, ipagtatanggol kita."
Ethel was even shocked when Willie raised his voice when she said Ate Gay was hurt over the results of the costume contest, and said "Ang liit na bagay. Yan lang. Kung hindi ninyo gusto ang patakaran, lumayas kayo. Get out!"
She also denied she confronted Willie in the dressing room. "Maling mali ang statement niya na sinugod namin siya sa dressing room. Teritoryo niya yon. Di totoo yon."
Ethel also said Willie has been sour since the show lost viewers to rival show, ABS-CBN's "It's Showtime." She felt success has gotten the better of him.
