GMA issues statement on Marian-Dingdong's show

Thru Pia Guanio on Showbiz Central yesterday, GMA 7 has reiterated that for the record, August 27, 2008 was the only available date for a show in Araneta Coliseum when they booked for the birthday party of Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes.

The statement is in relation to the accusation that GMA 7 has intentionally pitted Let's Celebrate, The Dingdong-Marian Birthday Blowout against the opening day of Star Cinema's For The First Time, which stars KC Concepcion and GMA's Telebabad King Richard Gutierrez.

On Abante Online, Dingdong has also expressed his side regarding this matter:

“Unang-una, sigurado ako na walang pananabotaheng naganap. Hindi namin sinasabotahe sina Ri­chard at KC.

“Nagkataon na ‘yung availability ng Araneta Coliseum is on August 27 lang din at sa pagkakaalam ko, matagal na raw na nai-book `yung show namin.

“And with the movie, kaibigan namin ‘yung mga nandoon. Kami ni Richard matagal ko nang sinasabi na kaming dalawa, wala kaming problema. Magkakasama kami sa isang network and we’re all friends. Then, si Direk Joyce Bernal who is the director of the movie is our friend also, being the director of Dyesebel.

“So, wala talaga. Besides, maliit lang ang industriya natin. Sobrang maliit lang ang chances na magkaroon ng ganitong event kaya sana, suportahan na lang with each other at magpasalamat sa lahat ng magagan­dang opportunity na dumarating sa ating lahat."

Meanwhile, Sharon Cuneta and Annabelle Rama, mothers of KC and Richard, expressed their disappointment about the same playdate:

As quoted from the show SHARON:

Annabelle: Pero ngayon kasi, parang imposible namang Wednesday, Araneta, Wednesday? ‘Tapos ano ba yun, the same date, e, tapos na yung birthday nung dalawa. Bakit hindi na lang sa 12, 13, 14, 15, 16? Bakit kailangang 27?

Sharon: To be fair and honest, masama ang loob ko, nagalit ako nung unang dinig. But I always know the truth is somewhere in the middle, e. I learned that from Kiko, e. So parang, siguro meron talagang nag-isip na manadya, kaya yung masakit.
