Toni Gonzaga denies that Vice Ganda isn't invited to her anniversary concert


090911-toni_main.jpgAfter the success of her Star Cinema flick Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi, Toni Gonzaga is once again busy gearing up for her major concert at the Araneta Coliseum on September 30 called Toni at 10 which celebrates the multimedia star’s 10 years in show business. “Siyempre excited na excited ako kasi mabibigyan ako ng pagkakataon na mai-celebrate yung sampung taon ko sa industriyang ito sa isang malaking venue katulad ng Smart Araneta Coliseum with my very, very special guests. Si Mr.Piolo Pascual, John Lloyd Cruz, Vhong Navarro, Pokwang. Siyempre yung kapatid ko si Alex Gonzaga and this is going to be directed by Mr. Johnny Manahan,” she shared during her press conference last September 6.

Toni denied reports that comedian Vice Ganda felt insulted that he was not included in the guest line-up for her concert. Toni said that her friendship with the Gandang Gabi Vice host is intact and as strong as ever. “Hindi naman ganun, invited talaga si Vice. Actually nahihiya ako kasi siyempre sobrang busy ni Vice. Sabi ko nga sa kanya, ‘Nahihiya na ako sa iyo, Vice.’ Tapos sabi niya, ‘Loka-loka ka talaga, ba’t ka nahihiya?’ Kasi siyempre alam ko kung gaano siya ka-busy at ka-hectic. Nahihiya talaga ako na imbitahan siya sa concert. But nagpapasalamat ako sa kanya dahil napakabait niya at talagang he really called to say na gusto niya maging parte and natutuwa ako sa kanya sa ginawa niyang yun dahil isa siya sa maituturing kong mabuting kaibigan dito sa industriyang ito. Pero wala namang isyu yung sa amin ni Vice. Ano lang talaga, siyempre at the end of the day kahit papaano we’re in this business na trabaho pa rin ito ‘di ba?” she explained.

The 27-year-old Happy Yipee Yehey! host said she is looking forward to rehearsing for her concert because it features a line-up of guests that are also very dear to her heart. “Espesyal talaga kasi personal ko talagang linapitan itong mga ito. Si Pokwang is a very good friend at natutuwa ako sa kakayahan niya bilang performer. Alam kong madami siyang mapapasaya sa concert ko pag andun siya at kaibigan ko din siya. Si John Lloyd Cruz, nagpapasalamat ako kasi naging parte siya ng ten years ko tapos si Piolo Pascual kasi he started my ten years. Siya yung isa sa mga nagsimula tapos si Vhong Navarro dahil he’s always been a part of my ten years. He’s been a good friend and I’m really happy to have a friend like Vhong. Vhong is also part of my guests sa concert kasi siya yung unang-unang lalake na naging ka-close sa showbiz. Dati wala kasi nahihiya ako makipagkaibigan. Si Vhong talaga yung unang-una  naging kaibigan ko kasi maraming alam naman si Vhong sa akin. Meron din daw some surprise guests na ikaka-surprise ko (laughs). Hindi nila sinasabi sa akin,” she admitted.

On whether her former onscreen partner Sam Milby will show up or not, Toni answered, “Hindi ko pa alam kasi madami silang tinatago sa akin, may mga surprise guests pa eh. Malay mo i-surprise niya ako (laughs). Hindi ko alam eh,” she added.

Toni shared that each and every guest is not only a friend to her, but someone who can bear witness to landmarks in her showbiz career. “Actually, even before this whole guest lineup was finalized, tinanong ako and nagkaroon kami ng kuwentuhan about the whole flow of my career in the business for ten years. Yung mga guests ko, sila yung mga artista at mga personalidad na naging malaki ang parte sa buhay ko kaya sila ang magiging bahagi nito,” she said.
