If she were in Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez’s position, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach would respond to host Steve Harvey’s messages after the historic coronation night gaffe.
Steve mistakenly announced Ariadna as Miss Universe 2015 winner when it should’ve been Pia last December.
Steve, in a recent radio interview, revealed that he has tried to reach out to Miss Colombia since the December 20 pageant but received no reply.
Pia, for her part, in an interview at the US Weekly last January 6, claimed that she would probably respond to Steve if she were in Ariadna’s shoes.
"Yes, I would respond to him because I think it takes a lot for him to admit he made a mistake, especially like that, it was on live television,” she said.
Pia also added, “For him to consistently reach out to her, I think it's a very admirable move from him."
But then, Pia stressed that it’s only her opinion.
"Well that's me. But I would really know unless... maybe she's still in the process of understanding what's going on, and I respect that. That's okay. But I think she will [reach out] eventually," said Pia.
Meanwhile, Pia also took time to address the nonstop bashers on social media who remain unhappy with the result of the Miss Universe 2015.
"A lot of people were happy, especially the Filipinos. Some people were also a bit disappointed with the results or with how the results came to be. And I understand. I completely understand because they had their bets during the pageant,” she said.
Despite understanding the position of her bashers, Pia is hoping for the best in the coming days especially since she’s already starting with her Miss Universe duties.
"And also, if it was the other way around, I think some of the Filipinos would be upset also. So, I understand it. I hope the negative comments would slow down a little bit in the next coming days," she ended.
