Actress Erich Gonzales clarified Sunday why she was not able to attend the ABS-CBN Ball 2019 on Saturday.
In response to a fan who said they were heartbroken to miss her at the star-studded event, The Blood Sisters star explained that she decided to skip the ball as she's still recovering from a wisdom tooth removal she had done last week.
"As much as I'd like to attend the ball, I'm still recovering from my wisdom tooth removal last week. My face is still swollen and there's still pain and discomfort from the surgery. Thank you for the support," she stated.
In 2018, Erich attended the first ABS-CBN Ball, and had even won Metro's Best Dressed Woman of the Night in an old Hollywood glam-inspired gown by Vania Romoff.
Aside from Erich, others stars whose absence were noticeable at this year's ABS-CBN Ball were Angel Locsin, Sarah Geronimo, and Toni Gonzaga.
