StarStruck finalist Lexi Gonzales has already made amends with her co-finalist, Rere Madrid, after having a misunderstanding with each other.
Their issue started after a StarStruck vote-out session, after Lexi called Rere a "backstabber," and said that Rere had been saying nasty things about her and co-finalist Ella Cristofani.
Weeks later, when Rere got eliminated, Lexi was one of the girls who gave her a tight hug.
Both ended up exchanging comments on their respective Instagram accounts.
During the media conference for StarStruck 7's final four last Wednesday, September 11, at GMA Executive Lounge, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Lexi how they fixed their issues.
Lexi answered, "Ah, kami ni Rere, after po noong issue kasi, ang daming nangyaring fuzz at saka siyempre nandiyan na yung bashing, mas dumami yung talagang naninira.
"Nag-usap kaming dalawa, meron pong ginawa ang StarStruck na parang counseling.
"Lahat po kami yun and from there, nagkitinginan kami ni Rere na parang, 'Tara, ayusin natin ito,' yung ganung klaseng tingin.
"Kaya after po no'n, nag-hug kami tapos nag-usap kami, nagkaintindihan kami.
"Everything was just a misunderstanding, meron lang po talagang mga tao na may nakita silang friendship, gusto nilang sirain."
According to Lexi, she and Rere were able to rekindle their friendship.
"Very good friends, at saka nata-touch nga po ako kasi grabe yung suporta na binibigay sa akin ngayon. Ganun po talaga si Rere, lahat naman kami, love niya."
LEXI ON JOINING STARSTRUCK AFTER STAR MAGIC STINT
During the first media conference for the Final 14, Lexi told PEP.ph in an interview that she used to be a Star Magic talent before joining StarStruck.
Star Magic is the talent arm of ABS-CBN.
Now that she is already part of StarStruck's final four, PEP.ph asked how happy she is with her decision to seek career opportunities in the rival network.
The 19-year-old StarStruck hopeful answered, "Yes, opo, definitely, kasi from dito sa StarStruck, I learned a lot. Sobrang marami po akong natutunan.
"Sobrang titindi talaga ng mga artista tests, so from there, talagang ang dami kong natutunan not just because galing ako sa kabilang network but from StarStruck itself, ang dami kong natutunan, na hindi ko nakuha mula sa iba.
"So, I think I've developed a lot because of StarStruck.
When asked to compare how she was when she was still with ABS-CBN, Lexi said that a lot changed when it comes to her personality.
She elaborated, "I remember kasi sa kabila, sobrang shy ako, e. Hindi ako gaya noong ganito na talagang mabati, mabeso, hi-hello.
"Sa kabila kasi, siguro, kaya hindi rin ako napapansin kasi ganito ako.
"So, noong sumali ako ng StarStruck, doon ko na-realize na iba pala talaga kapag pangarap mo, kapag talagang gusto mo.
"E, to be part of StarStruck, talagang pangarap ko talagang makapasok. So, noong nandito na ako, Top 22 na ito, Top 14 na ito, ito na ito, hindi ka na pwedeng parang sa kabila na ano ano ka lang.
"Dito, you have to fight, you have to really give it all."
Lexi will be competing against Shayne Sava to become this season's Ultimate Female Survivor.
Allen Ansay and Kim De Leon, on the other hand, are vying to become the Ultimate Male Survivor.
The final judgment will be held on September 14-15, 2019, with a taped-as-live episode on Saturday and a live announcement on Sunday.
