At the press conference of You’re My Boss with Coco Martin, Toni said, “It was never my intention because prior to the show, I was instructed to make the show fun, light, and ease the tension—especially during the Q & A portion. So it was never my intention.”
“Again, it was instructed for me to host that way, to make it lively and fun.”
She also apologized to those offended by her hosting that night, “I’m humbly asking if I have offended or I have maligned or I have hurt any one of you,” she said.
And thanked her supporters and defended her over the controversy.
“I don’t want to miss this opportunity to thank everyone, yung mga friends ko po from the press, my friends from the industry who have been saying a lot of good things, who have been defending me, nagsasalita ng good and kind words sa akin. Maraming, maraming salamat po. I really and truly appreciate that from the bottom of my heart,” Toni enthused.
“I want to say thank you to the committee of the Binibining Pilipinas for giving me the opportunity to host such a wonderful event, kasi first time ko ma-experience yung ganung kasaya na crowd, ganung kasaya na audience,” she said.
