Interaksyon.com reports that ABS-CBN talent Anne Curtis had to bow out of the annual University of Santo Tomas (UST) TV Awards. Curtis’ "disappearing act" created a buzz, as she was scheduled to perform that night. She had even tweeted: "Madlang Thomasians!!! I’m heeeerrre! Will be performing for you guys LIVE at the USTV Kickoff party!!" Shortly after she left, Curtis also tweeted the reason for her sudden departure.

 

In a series of tweets, she explained: "Thomasians, I’m sorry I had to leave na. I tried to at least get up on stage and say hi kahit 2 minutes lang but GMA staff didn’t want. Thomasians, I was there on the left side of the stage & told them kahit d na ako kumanta babati Lang ng Hi and Hello but GMA Staff Hayaan nyo na guys. GMA staff probably had their own reasons. Just wanted to let you know why I disappeared all of a sudden. :)"

 

Curtis also tweeted to her followers: "Wag na kayo magalit sa GMA peeps.. And just to clear it. They didn’t said bawal ako kumanta ever.. They just didn’t want na mauuna ako sa artists nila.. I tried to negotiate and say Hindi na Lang ako kakanta, Hi Lang.. But I guess Lang din sila cguro. Kaya deadma na. :) It’s just sad that i was already about to get on stage, as in by the stairs na. Kasi nauna ako dun before the GMA Artists were there..tapos pinigilan nila.. I guess what I learned from tonight is to humbly take a deep breath, give way and say BYE :)"

 

PEP reports that an unnamed source who was present at the event verified that Curtis had indeed asked the GMA staff to let her go up the stage. However, the source said she was told that some GMA talents had arrived ahead of her and were already slated to perform. The source said that Curtis chose to leave because she was due for a rehearsal at the Araneta Coliseum for her concert with Martin Nievera and the Side A band. The source also indicated that, perhaps, the organizers of the UST TV Awards should also explain what happened.
