"On my way to Buzz. I was able to force my siblings to pose w/ me. Why? Because the 1 in the middle said "Be Nice" to 1 of our guests later. Omg, so I said "of course, but I want an IG pic 1st of all of us!"
So my other 3 sisters said poor them, sasabihin daw ng all my followers wala silang ka-ayos ayos. (My followers will they did not fix themselves.) I said: hello? They love your simplicity, given na na ako lang ang maarte (given I am the one who is very vain). #kinikiligangkuyako #butipasiya," Kris wrote.
When Kris asked why she should be nice, Pia said: “Because I mentioned that I was going to be here sa ‘The Buzz.’ And I said that I was a little bit nervous because I saw the teaser and then nakalagay, (it was announced) ‘Pia Wurtzbach, sasagutin na ang mga tanong sa kanya tungkol kay Phil Younghusband at PNoy.’” (Pia Wurtzbach, to answer all the questions about Phil Younghusband and PNoy)
Pia however said she did not tell PNoy to tell Kris to be nice to her.
“Nung nakita ko 'yung [teaser], sabi ko ‘Ay hindi tungkol sa pagkapanalo ko.’ I was preparing myself for the questions already and then I told him na – well I didn’t say to him to tell you to be nice to me. That didn’t come from me,” she said. (When I saw the teaser, I said 'ay it's not about me winning')
