The reporter then ran into the dining room followed by shouting Rama holding a mic stand and shouting at the same time. German Moreno and Governor Chavit Singson stood in between.

After the incident she was seen leaving the scene covering her face accompanied by body guards.

In an interview, Alcid said Rama is furious of her because of several articles he wrote about her in the past.

This is what he said:

“Nagagalit sya sa akin dahil sa mga isinusulat ko tungkol sa kanya sa dyaryo at sa Facebook. Pero bakit dito pa sa burol ni Dolphy na di naman nya nirespeto.”

Rama, meanwhile, expressed her sentiments on Alcid through her official Twitter account (@annabellerama2). To quote:

1) Nasira ang gabi ko. nawalan ako ng ganang kumain

2) nakita ko yung baklang duwag, fake na reporter sa dining

3) Sinundan nya ako sa cr at hinarap nya ako, akala ng gago na yan na natatakot ako sa kanya.

4) Kaya ko sya hinampas ang yabang kase dahil marami syang kasama. Duwag matapang ka lang sa facebook at twitter.

5) Ito ang tandaan mong hayop ka, wag mong pakialaman ang mga anak ko dahil wala silang kasalanan sa iyo.

6) Pati ako tinitira mo

7) Reminder lang, baka nakalimutan mo 2 years ago, nasa dusit hotel ka ni rape mo ang janitor sa cr ng hotel

8) Nagkagulo dahil nagreklamo ang 18yrs old na janitor sa hotel security, nagkataon naman na nasa coffee shop ako at may meeting

9) ginamit mo ang pangalan ko at sinAbi mo empleyado kita, bigla akong nilapitan ng security

10) kasama ko raw ikukulong nila dadalhin sa police makati dahil ni rape mo ang 18yr old janitor

11) Nagmamakaawa ka sa akin kahit di kita kilala at di ka naman sikat na reporter tinubos pa rin kita.

12) Ito pa ang igaganti mo sa akin? Tirahin buong pamilya ko? Dahil kumampi ka sa idol mong balyena?

13) Hndi ka man lang kinampihan habang natumba ka sa sahig.

14) Piliin mo ang kalabanin mo.

15) To Zsa Zsa and the Quizon family, I am so sorry for what had happened at the dining area of the Heritage. I was provoked by a fake reporter
