Toni Gonzaga hopes John Estrada and Randy Santiago will overcome their issue with Willie Revillame



Toni Gonzaga recently met with John Estrada and Randy Santiago who shared their sentiments about their friend Willie Revillame being disappointed with them for agreeing to be the hosts of ABS-CBN'rsquo;s upcoming noontime show. "Nagkita kami nina Kuya John at Kuya Randy ang sabi nila, eh dito sa industriyang ito 'lsquo;pag personal ka talaga, 'lsquo;pag pinepersonal mo lahat, sa bahay ka na lang, dun ka na lang, 'lsquo;Hoy matulog ka na lang sa bahay kasi walang mangyayari sa 'lsquo;yo kung hindi mo kaya lahat,'rsquo;" revealed the actress-host. Last January 26, Willie had announced on his TV show that he is going to end his friendship with John and Randy because he was hurt by the pair'rsquo;s decision to accept ABS-CBN'rsquo;s offer.

But Toni is confident that her soon-to-be co-hosts will be able to rise above this controversy. "Eh si Kuya John and (Kuya) Randy naman matagal na sila sa industrya. I'rsquo;m sure kayang-kaya nilang i-handle lahat ng bagong intriga." The said TV program is currently in the works and is scheduled to start this February.

Aside from John, Randy, and Toni, Mariel Rodriguez is also a host of the new show. Toni admitted in an episode of The Buzz that she had already met with the staff and hosts of the upcoming show, including Mariel, with whom she had a rift. Last Saturday, January 29, was their first face-to-face meeting after their tiff in 2010.

Toni said that she has no problem working with Mariel again. "As long as it'rsquo;s a good project, it'rsquo;s for the common good, as long as maraming matutuwang tao." The two had previously worked together in Pinoy Big Brother and Entertainment Live.

Toni stressed, "Actually both of us, we'rsquo;re in the situation na damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don'rsquo;t. Whatever we say, whatever we do, people will always have [an idea about] us and already passed judgment on us. So no matter how we try to convince, explain, and answer whatever questions, may mindset na ang ibang tao na hindi mababago. Ang imporante sa akin 'lsquo;pag sinabi kong tapos na, tapos na lahat."'nbsp; She added that she wants to put the issue behind her and would like to start anew this 2011.

She said that the personal matters will be set aside in favor of the show and that continuous effort will come from both parties for the improvement of the show. "Lahat ng bagay na 'lsquo;yan mapagtatrabahuhan at bago naman mangyari ang lahat ng bagay sa telebisyon matagal munang plantsahan at matagal na pagdidiskusyon at pag-aayos. Everything will work out for the best I guess," said Toni.
