Toni Gonzaga said that her sister Alex is one of the reasons why she has survived the entertainment industry for fifteen years. The host-performer, who recently celebrated her 15th year in showbiz, said that Alex is truly part of her success.
“Malaking bahagi siya ng 15 years dahil hindi ko alam kung papaano ako makaka-survive ng 15 years sa industriya na wala akong kapatid na tulad niya kasi loka-loka, masaya lagi, positive, pag pagod ako, if may controversies, may mga issues, pag kausap ko siya parang okay lang kasi nandyan si Alex,” she said.
Toni admitted that they had a misunderstanding prior to her recent concert when Alex could not make it to the rehearsal of her concert. But Toni later on realized that her sister has her own set of priorities now. “Sabi ko ‘Bakit wala kang time at di mo priority ang concert?’ Tapos sabi niya “Pasensya na ate ha priority naman talaga kita laging ‘yung schedule mo ‘yung inuuna ko,’ tapos na-realize ko for fifteen years, nong nagsisimula ako ang life ni Alex always on hold pag lagi ko siyang kailangan lagi siyang nandiyan.”
She further shared, “Tapos na-realize ko ay may trabaho na pala siya, may taping siya, may buhay siyang iba kasi dati ang buhay ni Alex, sumasama lang siya sa akin, so nakalimutan ko na she already has her own life to live. Na-realize ko na akala ko ‘yung si Alex ‘yung mundo niya ako, ngayon may sarili na pala siyang mundo.”
Toni remarked that she is truly happy to be celebrating her anniversary with her sister who is also now part of the industry. “I’m so happy that she's celebrating 15 years with me hindi ko kakayanin ang industriya kung wala akong kapatid na tulad niya.” Toni hopes to stage a concert with Alex next year.
