According to ABS-CBN, Concio said in an interview that the”MMK” team ensured to get the beauty queen’s story from no one but Pia herself.

“We talked to Pia. ‘MMK’ talked to Pia. That’s her story so we respect her story.”

After the episode aired last Saturday, Pia’s half-brother and her late father’s partner criticized the episode through Facebook posts, claiming that Pia lied about her father.
