Four Sisters and a Wedding stars say meddling with their siblings' romantic relationships has limits

Four Sisters and a Wedding stars (L-R) Enchong Dee, Toni Gonzaga, Bea Alonzo, Angel Locsin, and Shaina Magdayao.


Until when can someone meddle with the relationship of his or her siblings?

For its 20th anniversary, Star Cinema offers a new family drama movie starring Angel Locsin, Bea Alonzo, Shaina Magdaya, Toni Gonzaga, and Enchong Dee.

Titled Four Sisters and a Wedding, the movie will feature the Salazar sibilings namely Teddie (Toni), the eldest who works as a teacher in Spain; Bobbie (Bea), who is now successful in New York; Alex (Angel), the third child who is an assistant film director in Manila; and Gabbie (Shaina), a school teacher who lives with their mother.

These four ladies are surprised when their youngest brother CJ (Enchong) announces that he will get married to his girlfriend of three months named Princess.

This prompts the four sisters to dissuade their young brother from marrying his fiancée.

Little did they know, their plan will make them realize buried feelings they have tried to keep from each other for a long time.

SIMILARITIES IN REAL LIFE. How are the star similar to their characters in real life?

At the press conference of the movie last week, the five actors agreed that it’s okay to get advice from their siblings when it comes to their romantic relationships.

Toni, the older sister of TV host-actress Alex Gonzaga, told the media, “Sa kultura po ng mga Pilipino, dahil ang pamilyang Pilipino naman po talaga ay close yung family ties, talagang hindi maiiwasan sa mga magulang at kapatid ang makialam sa pamilya nila.

“Ako po, may kapatid akong nakababata sa akin, hindi ko po ikakaila na nakikialam ko.

“Hindi po dahil pakialamera ako, may pagka-[pakialamera] lang.

“Pero kasi sa sarili mo, parang malasakit na alam mo kung ano ‘yong makakabuti para sa kapatid mo o kapamilya mo.

“Kasi, kapamilya ka, wala kang hinahangad na hindi maganda para sa mga mahal natin sa buhay.

“Kung pwede lang naman silang makinig sa’yo, nasa kapamilya naman namin ‘yon kung makikinig siya sa amin o hindi.

“Pero bilang isang kapamilya, hindi mawawala sa kultura ng Pilipino ang makialam sa buhay ng kapamilya nila.

“Hindi naman sa gustong makialam pero dahil sa sobrang pagmamahal.”

Bea also admitted that she sometimes gives advice to her younger brother because, “Parang naging second mom na niya ako dahil maaga akong nagtrabaho.

“So, lagi akong may say sa lahat ng aspeto ng buhay niya — sa pag-aaral niya, ngayon kung siya magtratrabaho, kung saan siya pupunta kung holidays.”

However, when it comes to personal relationships, the box-office actress said, “Hindi rin ako perpekto, e. Hindi ko kayang makialam.

“Ang ginagawa lang namin, parang naging tradisyon namin na kapag mayroon kaming mga family bonding, sinasama namin ‘yong mga mahal namin, boyfriend at girlfriend.

“Doon, nakikilala ko ‘yong pagkatao ng girlfriend, kung paano niya napapasaya ‘yong kapatid ko, at kapag nagbe-break sila, ako ‘yong unang nasasaktan.

“Hindi ako masyadong nakikialam. Pero basta kung saan magiging masaya ang kapatid ko, doon ako.”

Meanwhile, Angel admitted that she sometimes checks out her younger brother’s statuses on social networking sites.

“Ako ho kasi, ‘yong kapatid kong lalaki na bunso namin, ako ang nag-alaga noong lumalaki siya.

“Kaya siguro mas naging protective lang ako sa kapatid ko, na ayaw kong masaktan siya kaya nangingialam po ako sa mga relasyon niya.

“Binabasa ko ‘yong mga status niya sa Facebook.

“Hindi ko alam kung alam niya ‘to, pero sa lagay ngayon mukhang malalaman niya at iba-block na niya po ako sa lahat.”

“Ginagawa ko ‘yon dahil ayaw ko lang po kasi masaktan ang kapatid ko.”

She stressed, however, “’Yong pangingialam ko, alam ko naman kung hanggang saan.

“Ayaw ko rin naman na dahil sa pangingialam ko, masisira naman ang relasyon namin so, may hangganan lang din.

“Ayaw ko lang ho na tingin ko maiisahan o masasaktan ang kapatid ko dahil mahal ko siya.”

Being the youngest sister of Vina Morales, Shaina believes she has a different case.

She narrated, “Bilang bunso, oo ka na lang nang oo, sunod ka na lang nang sunod. Respeto na lang sa mga ate ko ‘yon.

“Basta ang sinisiguro ko lang, kapag kailangan nila ng kausap o kapag medyo hindi na maganda ang nangyayari sa buhay pag-ibig, nandito lang po ang bunso nila, na handang makinig at ipakita sa kanila na hindi sila nag-iisa.

“The same way na ganun din naman po ang ipinapakita nila sa akin. Siguro, it’s just about trust and respect po sa amin.”

Giving advice, according to Enchong, does not mean that it should be followed all the time.

He explained, “Siguro more than pakikialam, it’s more of suggestions and advice pero not to the point na whatever they decided, ‘yon na ang magiging desisyon ko rin.

“Siguro rerespetuhin ko kung ano ‘yong sasabihin niya, kung ano ‘yong ibibigay nila sa aking mga advice pero hindi maipapangako na ‘yon din ang gagawin ko.

“Siyempre, bilang tao, may sarili rin akong paniniwala at paninindigan na baka ‘yon din ang gusto kong gawin.

“But then again, whatever they say, it will matter.”
