"Umaasa ako ha, lalo pa't ginawan ko... namin... ng paraan, kami ni Ethel na pumunta doon kaya lang huwag muna dahil siyempre andun pa yung init ng ulo," the comedian said in a recent interview with "Ang Latest: Updated."

Recall that Ethel Booba announced her resignation on the TV5 noontime show on March 2 via Twitter. The two co-hosts were asked to not report for the show's March 1 episode, the day after Revillame lambasted them publicly.

Explaining his side on the matter, Ate Gay said that he still respects Revillame and that the recent "misunderstanding" is an ordinary family problem.

"Okay lang naman ako, eh. Ang pangit lang dun kasi, para kaming isang pamilyang nagkaroon ng problema. Siyempre, ang tatay si Willie... pinagalitan lang kami. Pinilit naming... kumbaga, makipag-usap, kasi after noong mga tsikahan noong nagagalit na siya, pumasok kami dun sa dressing room tapos ayun, sermon pa rin," he related.

Without divulging what really transpired backstage, if he really shouted at Revillame as the latter claimed, Ate Gay explained, "Ako, nirerespeto ko ang lahat ng sinasabi niya. Kapag sinabi kong 'hindi,' ang pangit naman para sa kanya. Kapag sinabi kong 'oo,' 'di ba, parang ang pangit naman para sa amin, kilala ako ng mga kaibigan ko, hindi ako ganoong tao (na naninigaw)."

Ate Gay said that it's but natural for him to feel hurt over Revillame's outburst.

"Pero hanggang dun lang dahil andun 'yung respeto ko kay Willie, mabait siya... Si Kuya Willie minahal ko siya because of 'Wowowillie' dahil ang pagtulong naman ay sinuklian naman namin," he added.
