Buti pa bisita! Vanessa Hudgens’ mom says sorry to media for Paul Soriano’s outburst

It was the mother of Hollywood actress Vanessa Hudgens who reportedly ended up apologizing to members of the media who were shabbily treated by Presidential Adviser on Creative Communications Paul Soriano during a March 31 press conference in Taguig.

A Babbler said Hudgens’ Filipina mother, Gina Guangco, stepped in after an irate Soriano cut short the scheduled one-on-one interviews with her daughter.

“Sorry. Sorry everyone. Pasensya na,” Guangco reportedly told members of the media.

Soriano was reportedly overheard telling Hudgens’ public relations team to bring members of the media out of the press conference venue at the Manila House in Bonifacio Global City. He supposedly wanted the event to be over because the actress was behind schedule for another activity.

Get the press out of here. I don’t need them. They’re so useless. The press can fuck off,” the husband of actress-host Toni Gonzaga reportedly said.

Because of Soriano’s order, CNN Philippines and representatives from print media failed to have their scheduled one-on-one interview with Hudgens.

The Filipina-American actress visited the Philippines to shoot a documentary with Soriano’s Ten17P Productions.
