“If you research all my statements regarding my brother, I never referred or addressed him as Kuya... only PNoy or Noy. So, dun pa lang, mali na. Only the eldest in our family is called ate or kuya... That's why Ate (Ballsy) is Ate. All the rest, first-name basis kami kasi, 'di ba, laking-Amerika?" she explained.
She then continued and said she was never interviewed regarding that issue.
"And I was never asked, so how can I comment? I was abroad with my sons... I was in Hong Kong Friday [July 3], I just arrived today [July 6].So, how could have they caught up with me? Me and my manager Boy Abunda don't know Manila Link or anyone from there. So, sa akin lang, kung mag-iingay, sana huwag na akong gamitin," she said.
