Toni Gonzaga Avoids Being Emotional With Vhong NavarroLike many others of his showbiz friends, Vhong Navarro got a visit from Toni Gonzaga, who he starred with in several talks shows, television programs and even movies.
Toni just came back from Dubai for "ASAP 19" when she visited Vhong in an undisclosed hospital. She didn't ask him already about the case because like many others, she did her fair share of research. She has heard a lot about it too.
The actress-TV host said that what Vhong really needs is someone to encourage him. He also needed to know that his family and friends are all there for him.
Vhong and Toni first worked together in "Wazzup Wazzup" in 2004 with Drew Arellano. They worked again in several TV programs, the last one being "Lastikman" in 2004. They also did two movies under Star Cinema--"D'Another" in 2007 and "My Only U" in 2008.
When she visited the comedian-TV host, Vhong was still joking with her, Toni said. They are not the kind of friends who become emotional immediately. "Right now, he doesn't need yung mga magpapabigat ‘tapos iiyak pa ako."
Toni felt she missed her friend when she first saw Vhong in the hospital. Somehow, it wasn't a time for them to talk about what happened. It's just unfortunate that they met again after the incident happened.
Vhong is the subject of controversy now after being tagged in a rape case by model Deniece Cornejo. The comedian-TV host, however, claimed he was the subject of extortion and blackmail.
"Very unfortunate na yung isang kakilala mo, yung isang kaibigan mo ay nalagay sa ganoon posisyon. Sa pagkakataong ito, prayers ang kailangan and suporta."
