Annabelle Apologizes To Quizon Clan For Scuffle With Writer At Dolphy's Wake

MANILA, Philippines - Talent manager Annabelle Rama claimed she was ''provoked'' by journalist Chito Alcid into a commotion between them at Dolphy's wake at The Heritage Park on Friday night.

After the much talked-about altercation, Rama apologized via Twitter to Dolphy's kin for disrupting the solemnity of the wake.

''To Zsa Zsa [Padilla] and the Quizon family, I am so sorry for what had happened at the dining area of the Heritage. I was provoked...'' she wrote.

Much to the attendees' shock, an enraged Rama, as seen on the video aired on ''Bandila'' on Friday, was shown being pacified by host German Moreno.

According to the ''Bandila'' report, Rama and her husband Eddie Gutierrez immediately left the venue after the scene.

The controversial personality justified the cause of her rash action through a barrage of tweets and claimed that it was Alcid who set the whole fracas in motion.

''Sinundan nya ako sa cr at hinarap nya ako, akala...natatakot ako sa kanya,'' fumed Rama.

According to her, she hit Alcid because he's ''[ma] yabang kase dahil marami syang kasama.''

In another tweet, Rama accused Alcid of taking a swipe at her family through his past articles.

''Ito ang tandaan mo...'wag mong pakialaman ang mga anak ko dahil wala silang kasalanan sa iyo,'' she reminded him and continued with, ''Pati ako tinitira mo.''

More, Rama lamented Alcid's ''ungratefulness'' after she supposedly helped him wiggle himself out of a controversy that happened years back, even if she didn't know him personally.

''Ito pa ang igaganti mo sa akin? Tirahin buong pamilya ko?

''Piliin mo ang kalabanin mo,'' Rama said in parting.

Alcid, via an interview aired on ''Bandila,'' also apologized to the Quizon clan for the fray.

''Nag-ugat 'yan dahil nga 'yung mga writeup ko at 'yung mga Facebok [posts] na sinusulat ko lang ang katotohanan tapos hinaharass niya ako. Sa mga Quizon family, pasensya [na],'' he countered.

Meanwhile, Eric Quizon, the clan's chosen spokesperson, through a live interview with ''Paparazzi'' on Saturday, maintained that the family is ''okay'' about the incident that happened the night before.

'''Siguro kung buhay pa si Daddy ang sasabihin lang no'n, 'Si Annabelle talaga oh!'

''But seriously okay lang sa amin. Tita Annabelle has sent us her message of apology and okay lang talaga. Siguro na-shock lang talaga kami. Iba talaga magbigay ng shock value 'yan si Tita eh,'' he said, smiling.
