Gonzaga family: Waiter in viral video not a stranger


THE Gonzaga family clarified the issue on the viral video that showed Alex Gonzaga swiping icing on the face of a server.

A statement sent to entertainment blog Fashion Pulis by entertainment columnist and Gonzaga family’s publicist Peter Ledesma, cleared up that the waiter named Allan is not a stranger to the family.

“This Allan, one of the waiters of Florabel Resto and Catering Service in Valle Verde Pasig, is a friend of Mommy Pinty Gonzaga and the Soriano family. Kaya (That’s why) majority of the events of Gonzaga and Soriano Family ay sila ang kinukuha ni Mommy Pinty na mag-cater ng (are handled by them because Mommy Pinty gets them for) food and beverages.

“At itong si Allan ay laging kabiruan na Mommy Pinty and Alex at ito ang parating nagse-serve sa kanila. Kaya tuwing nagkikita ay binabati agad ni Allan ang mag-mommy, magiliw ito sa kanila.”

(And Mommy Pinty and Alex always joke around with Allan since he always serves them. That’s why everytime Allan sees mother and daughter, he greets them).

Ledesma stressed that Allan is already familiar with Gonzaga’s playful behavior.

“Hindi naman magagawa ni Alex, ang magbiro at magpunas ng cake, kung hindi sila magkakilala ng said waiter, na sanay na sa pagiging mapagbiro at kikay ni Alex.”

(Alex cannot joke and wipe cake on the face of the waiter if she does not know him and the waiter is not used to Alex’s antics.)

Ledesma also clarified that contrary to the allegations of “detractors and bashers,” Alex was not drunk or tipsy when the incident happened.
