Toni Gonzaga is in love. But not with Sam Milby, Luis Manzano, Zanjoe Marudo, or the rumored politician who was allegedly hounding the TV host-singer-actress lately. Toni is very much in love with her showbiz career that being romantically involved with any guy at this point of her life is not included on her priority list.
At the press launch of Pinoy Big Brother Season 2 last Valentine's day, Toni was surprisingly dressed in a black gown. But she was quick to explain that, "Nag-usap kami nina Mariel [Rodriguez] at Bianca [Gonzales] na mag-black, kaya kahit Valentine ngayon, ‘eto naka-black kami." Toni, Mariel, and Bianca will host the second season of ABS-CBN's reality show.
Toni is still loveless. But she does not fret about it. And when asked, from the list of her suitors, why no one has captured her heart yet; Toni stated matter-of-factly, "Masyadong maiksi ang lifespan ng showbiz career ng mga artista, kaya I'm just making the most out of what I have now. Saka na siguro ‘yan. Minsan lang ang ganitong opportunity, so ‘wag na nating palampasin pa."
Who among Sam, Luis, and Zanjoe is closest to her heart?
"Cliche nang masyado ‘to, pero close ako sa kanilang lahat. We are all good friends. Wala yung ranking kung sino ang ganito o ganyan. Pantay-pantay silang lahat para sa akin," said Toni.
One reporter mentioned during the PBB press con that the reason why there is a rumor that Toni is a lesbian is probably because the TV host has not been romantically involved with any guy.
"Naku, dati na ‘yang intriga! Ayoko nang patulan," said Toni.
Another reporter retorted in jest that the suitors of Toni were rumored gays that's why they are attracted to Toni.
To this, Toni laughed and said, "Wala namang gano'n! Hindi totoo ‘yang mga ganyang intriga. In fairness, wala naman akong naamoy na may gano'n sa kanila."
Aside from Pinoy Big Brother, Toni's other TV shows are ASAP '07 on ABS-CBN and Wazzup Wazzup on Studio 23. She has also a finished a movie with Sam and Zanjoe entitled You Got Me from Star Cinema.
