MANILA, Philippines – “Kristine” stars Cristine Reyes and Zanjoe Marudo have patched things up following a brief misunderstanding over the actor’s “offensive” Twitter posts.
"Nag-usap kami noong nagkita kami sa taping. Nag-sorry ako sa kanya. In-explain ko din na oo mali nga ako doon. Binura ko na ang Twitter account ko," Marudo told “The Buzz.”
Reyes has cried foul after reading malicious exchange of tweets between Marudo and his director friend Willie Cuevas.
In Marudo’s Twitter account, he and Cuevas talked about the August 20 episode of “Kristine” that saw the actor’s character inadvertently touching Reyes’s left breast in one scene.
According to the actress, the scene called for it. She got irked, however, after reading Cuevas and Marudo’s tweets about the episode.
Cuevas said: “Z (Marudo) kwento mo naman sa amin ung lasa nung pagkakahawak mo ng boobs ni Cristine, please... wag mo na kami pahirapan mag-imagine!”
In another post, Cuevas asked Marudo how many times the scene was shot. “naka-ilang take 'yung hawak mo boobs ni Cristine? hahaha! sana nakarami ka ng take!”
To which, Marudo replied: “Konti lang direk! Hahahahah.”
Through her Twitter account, Reyes retorted back, “WOW LANG SA TWEET AH! UHM HELLO NASA TWITTER AKO. Try nyo magtxt na lang. Try lang.”
In another post, she said: “I don't wanna ruin my night. Ganun talaga pag ungentleman. Tsk tsk tsk.”
“All I want is a gentleman. I'm sick to bloody death of bastards,” she also tweeted.
Reyes also hinted that she got an apology from Marudo, but she initially questioned his sincerity. “can't believe hindi pa rin niya dinedelete ang tweets na yun. di ko makita yung sincerity sa sorry nya kung di nya intensyon maka-offend.”
According to a reliable source, Marudo didn’t know his tweets can be read by the public, including Reyes, since he is just new to the social networking site. This prompted Marudo to delete his account.
All is well now between the two parties. In fact, they were seen together during the recent ABS-CBN Trade Launch event.
After the incident, Reyes said she and Marudo became closer. “"Ang importante okay na kami. And parang actually mas lalo kaming naging close.”
Reyes also confirmed that she is now convincing Marudo to go back to Twitter since it will enable him to directly communicate with his fans.
"Makakatulong din yon sa kanya and siyempre para maka-communicate din niya ang mga fans niya," she added.
