Toni Gonzaga Shrugs Off Rumors Linking Boyfriend Paul Soriano To Other WomenThere were photos of director Paul Soriano with other women that lately came out on the Internet. The press asked Toni Gonzaga what she thought of those, and if this can cause a rift between her and her boyfriend of seven years.
Gonzaga said she doesn't mind those pictures because some are even dated way back when she and Soriano were still not together. Since they got together, people have been saying that they will soon break up.
Still, the multimedia star said none of those predictions have come true.
Regarding the pictures, she said some of the women there were people she met before while some were Soriano's old classmates. She arrived at a point in their relationship, however, that she doesn't mind about those things anymore because she trusts Soriano not to do anything that will hurt her.
As much as possible, Gonzaga doesn't want to comment on such things and make it look like she's coming to her boyfriend's defense. She said people might think she's just blinded by love.
"Kung ano na lang ang makita ninyo sa litrato, husgahan na lang ninyo kung gusto ninyo siyang husgahan. Pagpiyestahan ninyo na lang siya hangga’t gusto ninyo siyang pagpiyestahan."
This month, they will be celebrating their seven years together. At that time, Gonzaga has made peace with the issues hounding their relationship.
At first, Soriano was hurt that a lot of people interfere in their relationship. But over the years, the director has become accustomed to people putting their noses where they don't belong.
"Sabi ko, di naman maiiwasan, ganun naman talaga. There are really people who would like to celebrate yung mga lies, negative issues or negative stories, hayaan na lang natin."
The model, TV host, endorser, singer and actress is so comfortable and secure in her relationship with Soriano that she doesn't feel jealous or insecure when such things crop up. When the relationship is founded on trust and love, Gonzaga said the couple would be able to discern the truth from the lies.
"I think trust is every important at pag nasira ang trust, kahit anong sabihin nating buo na siya uli, may mga crack na yun so it’s very important to take care of the trust."
In the end, she said Soriano should also think about the trust given to him by her parents before he does anything that might jeopardize their relationship.
Asked if she's afraid of the so-called seven-year itch where one or both of the parties in a relationship is bound to stray, Gonzaga said she prefers to look at their relationship as "seven wonderful years."
"Kasi pag inisip mo yung seven years na negative baka dun pumunta, because where your thoughts [are], that is where your life is going to lead you. Kung ano ang iniisip mo, yun ang pupuntahan ng buhay mo."
For now, Gonzaga has a new found passion in cooking since she will be hosting ABS-CBN's "Kuwentong Kusina, Kuwentong Buhay.”
In fact, Soriano gifted her with a crash course in cooking at the Center for Culinary Arts. The director saw how badly Gonzaga wanted to learn to cook, so that's why he decided to enroll her in a culinary school.
Gonzaga said she prefers gifts like this than material things. The TV host-actress admitted learning how to cook is a good preparation for her when the time comes that she will also have a family.
Soriano has been very vocal about wanting to settle down with his girlfriend of seven years. However, Gonzaga is still under contract with ABS-CBN, so she still has to fulfill some obligations.
She is also busy with several shows on ABS-CBN such as "The Voice Of The Philippines" and "ASAP 18."
