YES! September 2013 Issue

Toni and Alex Gonzaga at home and chatty about personal issues

“I was bullied growing up,” Toni Gonzaga tells YES! magazine in an exclusive interview. “I didn’t have a lot of friends in school kasi I started working at a very young age.

"I was a loner in school, and I really felt at that time na parang school wasn’t really for me.

"I felt like I was meant to be somewhere else.”

That “somewhere else,” as it developed, was exactly where she would be launched as a bright new face in show business. And today, she is reaping praises for being a reliable host, a capable singer, and a favorite female lead in the movies.

Meanwhile, Alex—the younger of gthe Gonzaga sisters—ready to do anything reasonable for her showbiz career, but she draws the line on her love life.

Yes, she’s swearing off love at the moment. After having cried buckets of tears over a few guys, she says she is sick of getting into relationships for all the wrong reasons.

There was a time when she thought differently. “During that time,” she recalls, “parang gusto ko lang magkaro’n ng boyfriend. Basta lang magkaroon. I was desperate.”

Toni chimes in, “Gusto lang niyang makiuso.”

Alex agrees, “Kahit sino na lang ang lumapit, ‘Puwede na ’to!’ ’Tapos, later on, mare-realize ko hindi talaga puwede."

The Gonzaga sisters share more stories about their adventures and misadventures in love, life, and career in the YES! September 2014 issue.
