Alex Gonzaga shares that she is now better at handling criticisms.
Alex Gonzaga’s career continues to flourish with three regular shows on TV5, two of which are sitcoms and the third being a showbiz-oriented daily talk show. Like her older sister Toni Gonzaga, Alex said that she likes both comedy and hosting, although she admitted that she still needs to hone her skills. “Kasi mahirap din namang mag-host kasi sa hosting ko naman hindi pa naman ako masyadong binibigyan ng sobrang serious [na hosting job] at ‘yung acting, hindi rin naman ako nabibigyan ng masyadong serious [na role.] So as of now, kaya ko pa naman both pero sana lalo pang ma-hone,” she revealed.
Alex also said that she has already recovered from the criticisms she received from the fans of Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson after the host-actress supposedly made a comment about Gerald’s rumored movie with Sarah Geronimo, which Kimerald fans did not like. She also clarified that there is no rift between her and Kim, who supposedly got affected by Alex’s comment. “Okay na sa amin ‘yon, wala na. Naka-move on na kami. Wala naman. Okay na kami at nakausap ko na si Kim kaya ayoko na ring pag-usapan baka isipin ni Kim [may tampuhan pa kami],” she explained.
She also admitted that she and co-host IC Mendoza are now better at handling negative comments that they get from people. “Actually may mga nag-email na naman sa aming Kimerald. Inano na nila uli kami, pero natanggap na namin nang maayos. Hindi na kami na-shock, okay na,” she shared.
While she and her family celebrated Christmas in the US last year, Alex said that they are staying in the country to visit relatives. “Kasi marami rin kami sa mother’s side at father’s side, tsaka mga kasama namin sa bahay. Traditional lang, ‘yung kain-kain lang, tapos party-party, tapos mga palaro.”
Just like last year, the TV personality is planning to buy a bag for herself as gift. “Kasi mahilig ako sa bag. Pero kasi magbi-birthday din ako sa January, so nag-usap na rin kami ng ate ko at siya nagpasimuno para konti lang ‘yung gastos. Magbunutan kami so ‘yon.”
Although Toni revealed in a previous interview that Alex is the less practical one, the younger sister said that she is managing her earnings better nowadays. “Meron naman naiipon kasi lahat naman ng kinikita ko ibinibgay ko sa mommy ko, tapos pinapakita naman niya sa ‘kin ‘yung savings ko. Kasi ma-ATM ako, feeling mo dire-diretso ‘yung pera at nawawalan ka ng control kaya mas maganda ‘yung naka time deposit.”
