'Team Gonzaga': How Toni, Alex spend their weekends
MANILA – What's a typical weekend like for celebrity sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga?
In the second episode of "Team Gonzaga" which was shown through ABS-CBN mobile, Toni and Alex shared how they usually spend weekends especially when both of them have to be on "ASAP" on Sunday.
"Nag-eeffort kami na magkasama kapag weekend kasi parang kami ni Alex bwisit na bwisit kami sa isa't-isa kapag magkasama kami, pero kapag hindi naman kami magkasama, hahanapin naman namin ang isa't isa," Toni said.
Alex said she is glad that they see each other more often now as both of them are part of showbiz.
"Ngayon na pareho kaming ginagawang trabaho, masaya kami lalo na we get to spend more time together. Unlike noon na nag-aaral ako tapos siya nag-aartista. Pero kahit nung time na yun, kapag tinawag ko ang ate ko, nandoon siya for me. Totoo, mabait talaga yan," Alex said.
During Saturdays, Alex said her sister always wants the two of them to rehearse for "ASAP" together.
"Ako ang una niyang critic. Kapag hindi ako nagagalingan sa kanya, sinasabi ko talaga sa kanya. Kini-critic namin ang isa't isa. Tapos kapag alam niyang may [guesting] ako sa 'ASAP' gusto niya sabay kaming mag-rehearse."
Toni, on the other hand, said she convinces Alex to rehearse with her all the time only because she wants their production numbers to be perfect.
"Perfectionist kasi ako, kasi lagi kong sinasabi, I might be as good as my last performance kaya ibibigay ko na lahat na parang last performance ko na 'to," she said.
After rehearsing at their own home, Toni and Alex said they would then decide to go to bed and have breakfast together the next day.
"Every morning bago kami umalis sabay talaga kaming nagbre-breakfast o kung hindi na talaga kaya, nagbabaon kami," Toni. Said.
The celebrity sisters also remind each other to go to Church after their showbiz commitments for the day.
"Ganun talaga ang weekend namin, magulo, crazy yung schedule. But we always see to it that we get to spend time together," Toni said. "We always see to it na kailangan updated kami sa buhay ng isa’t isa and kailangan we always go back to our common ground which is our faith."
While it may not seem obvious at times, the younger Gonzaga confessed she is grateful to have Toni as her sister. "Now I always make the most out of it na, makasama siya, so natutuwa ako sa ate ko… She never forgets to be an older sister to me.”
