When you hear the name Gonzaga, without a doubt Toni and Alex would come to mind. Their fun and quirky personalities easily make them two of the most loved sister tandems in the industry. So far, they have walked down different paths as actresses and hosts. Luckily, we have their interview together on Tonight with Boy Abunda to shed a light on their banter.
The conversation started off light enough as the two explained how Alex’s hit single “Chambe” came to be. But then the mood took a serious turn when it was revealed that Alex had to seek help from a life coach. Many viewers could not help but compare them. At the same time, Alex was already going through her personal problems. Eventually, the management started asking her about her plans and urged her to meet with a psychologist. Until Alex started to doubt herself because of everyone else’s opinion about her.
“Kinuwestyon ‘yung authenticity niya. Is she just another Toni-wannabe? Is she trying to be Toni?” Toni summed up. There were speculations that Alex only acts the way she does as an attempt to surpass her older sister. However, they clarified that none of this is true. The biggest lesson she gained from having a life coach is staying true to herself. “Kailangan ko lang pong tanggapin na ito talaga ko. So, kung may tumanggap sa akin, good. Kung wala, dapat i-own ko. Kasi dati po ‘pag sinasabi na ‘hindi ikaw ‘yan’, naniniwala ako,” she admitted.
Little did many people know, their similarities stem from their truly close bond and the fact that they shared their success with each other. “Hindi ko ma-explain sa kanila ‘yung dynamics naming magkapatid na ang ate kahit nandoon siya sa stage pagbaba niya, kung ano ‘yung nakuha niya sa stage 50/50 kami,” Alex confessed. Meanwhile, during their alone time, they used to practice acting together. Every summer, they would look forward to role-playing a teacher and a student. They were even gifted with a camera back then.
Their entire interview is worthy of being aired on television. Without a doubt, fans would love to watch even there is a part two or three. Catch every second of their girl talk with the King of Talk in this TWBA Uncut Interview!
