Toni Gonzaga admits she is not ready to talk about marriage yet


091611-toni-main.jpgWith her 10th year showbiz anniversary concert Toni at 10 barely two weeks away, Toni Gonzaga is busy preparing for it as well as attending to her daily hosting duties on Happy Yipee Yehey! and other showbiz commitments. The concert, which will be held on September 30 at the Araneta Coliseum, was a big surprise to Toni. “Hindi ko nga akalaing mangyayari pa ito. Akala ko nga hindi na siya mangyayari. Ganun talaga, some people it takes them ten years. Some people naman it only takes them two years, four years, three years. Para sa akin masaya na ako dahil sa loob ng sampung taon ay nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon na mag-concert. Wala naman siguro sa tagal yun at nasa right time kung ipagkakaloob sa ‘yo. Siguro ganun talaga, kinakailangan umabot ako ng sampung taon para mabigyan ako ng pagkakataon na mag-celebrate,” she shared.

Toni explained why she chose to get Johnny Manahan to be the show’s director instead of her boyfriend Paul Soriano. “Iba yung forte kasi ni direk Paul. He’s more into advertising. Although he’s directed some of Kuya Gary Valenciano’s concerts before, I guess pag ganito kasi kalaking venue at ganito kalaking produksyon, eh gusto ko naman yung talagang someone that I also trust. Of course I trust direk Paul, I think that he can do it but siguro may conscious effort na rin na para hindi na rin maintriga. Kung siya ang director nito, alam na alam ko na ang susunod na tanong nito, ‘Kalian kayo magpapakasal? (laughs) After ba ng concert na ito pakasal na or magpo-propose ka ba sa concert?’ So para makaiwas na rin. Kasi baka yun na lang ang pag-usapan sa concert. Baka hindi na nila pag usapan yung Toni at 10. Si Paul na lang at saka yung pagpapakasal ang pag-usapan. Para makaiwas na rin. And I’m actually really thankful to Mr. M kasi hindi naming akalain na tatanggapin niya itong proyektong ito. Of course his brilliance and his expertise as a director at sa pagdidirect ng ganito kalalaking mga shows ay malaking tulong sa Toni at 10. Okay na yun para maiwasan na rin ang mga questions about us. I think maganda na rin naman kahit papano na kahit na in a way we have been open to the public about the relationship, it;s better to separate the personal from your working relationship,” she explained.

The 27-year-old singer-actress admitted she has no plans of getting hitched anytime soon. “Wala pa talaga. Actually ako kasi ewan ko ganun akong klase ng tao eh. Mahilig ako magplano ng mga priorities ko sa buhay so sa ngayon, sa stage ng buhay ko ngayon hindi pa siya kasama sa plano ko,” she said.

Toni said she understands that the public is eager to see her and Paul take the next step in their relationship, but she is not any rush to walk down the aisle. “Yun kasi laging tanong sa akin kung kelan ako magpapakasal eh hindi pa nga. I think it just so happened na people got aware with how long the relationship has been going. It’s been going for four years so siguro sa isip ng iba, ang tagal na magpakasal na kayo. Dahil siguro naging ganun yung tanong ng ibang tao, but other than that, wala pa talagang mga ganung plans sa ngayon. Lalo na ngayon. Mairaos ko man lamang ito ng maayos. Ito muna pinagkakaabalahan natin ngayon,” she shared.

When asked why it seemed like Paul was hinting at a marriage proposal during his recent guest appearance on The Buzz, Toni explained it was anything but a formal proposal. “Tinanong lang niya ako kung kelan kasi nga nabulungan siya ng mga taga-The Buzz para kabahan ako. Wala pang set na date. Wala pa akong singsing, wala pa talagang ganun. At s
