MANILA, Philippines – Actress Iza Calzado recounted her wardrobe malfunction on musical variety show “ASAP 2012,” saying she has yet to see the “wide shot” view of the on-cam blip as it was televised live.

During her production number on the show, Calzado’s leggings ripped after she split in mid-air for her dance routine. She said they had been rushing to their performance and had failed to check her wardrobe before going on stage.

“Actually kasi nagmamadali kami magbihis tapos ‘yung leggings ‘di ko na nacheck,” she said in an interview on dzMM Thursday. “Eh may split ako pabaliktad on air, so nawarak. Anong sasabihin ko, diba? Nawarak talaga.”

Calzado is only thankful that the camera didn’t offer a close view of the incident as it unfolded.

“Buti nalang malayo ‘yung shot. Sabi ko talaga, ang bait talaga ni Lord, at thank you, Mister M (director Johny Manahan), kahit hindi niya alam na ‘yung pag-decide niya ng wide shot na ‘yun ay makakatulong ng husto.”

The live audience likewise didn’t have a clear view of the malfunction, Calzado said, since the choreography had her flipping backwards.

“Ay hindi [nakita ng audience], kasi mataas, pabaliktad, hindi ako paharap sa audience napunitan ng underwear. Kumbaga kung mataas ka, dun mo lang siya makikita,” she said.

Although Calzado is thankful the malfunction didn’t expose much, she admits not having seen it after its telecast last February 26.

“Hindi ko talaga alam, hindi ko pa actually napapanood, pero hindi naman daw sobrang halata kasi nga wide shot. Kumbaga at least sa sakin nga, thankful nalang ako na ‘di man lang siya medium shot, wide shot siya,” she said.
