Alex Gonzaga may be able to handle all of Luis Manzano’s jokes about her, but that doesn’t mean her big sister Toni Gonzaga can too.
The Kapamilya host/actress revealed in an interview with PEP that the Ultimate Multimedia Star sometimes gets bothered when Luis takes his teasing to the peak.
“Ang ate ko, talaga sensitive siyang tao. Minsan may mga biro si Kuya Luis na kapag narinig niya, ‘Sinong sinabihan ni Luis nang ganun? Ako? ‘Bakit ganun, bakit 'di ka nag-aano?’” Alex explained.
But she would always assure Toni that there’s nothing to worry about, because that’s just really how their friendship really works. She tells her "sissum,"“‘Wala naman 'yun, narinig ko na 'yun, pang-100 times ko nang narinig 'yun.’”
Alex added, “Siya kasi, hindi naman niya alam na ganun kami. Pero ngayon, kapag nagbibiruan kami, wala na. Minsan lang, sabi ni Luis, ‘Tumingin sa akin 'yung ate mo nung biniro kita, parang hindi niya nagustuhan 'yung joke ko.’ Pero hindi na nagri-react ang ate ko.”
This friendship goes beyond the silly jokes they constantly make about each other, whether online or on live TV. And according to Alex, they have their serious moments as well, especially when they’re talking about their life problems.
So, Alex knows not to take things personal and she never has. “Hindi, never, never! Sinasabihan ko naman siya sa ganun… ‘Basta, huwag ka lang mapipikon kapag ako 'yung gumanti.' Hindi naman siya napipikon… alam ko naman na katuwaan lang 'yun.”
There was just this one time when Luis pulled a savage prank on Alex, but she got back at him right away and his mom Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos even got involved!
“Ang malala talaga nung nasugatan siya sa akin, ‘yung na-scratch ko siya. Tapos binig-deal niya na ipapa-SOCO na raw niya ako, mga two years ago. Si Miss Vilma nag-message pa. Kasi hanggang ngayon, may mark pa siya. Kasi naman, pinainom niya ako ng pawis niya. Hindi ka ba maiinis nun?” said Alex.
Witness this fun (sometimes wild) friendship on full effect every weekend on “I Can See Your Voice”, with Luis as the host and Alex as one of the Singvestigators.
