Toni Gonzaga Denies Eastwood Issue With FansToni Gonzaga clarified that there was no issue between her and her fans even though there were reports that the multimedia star failed to greet them and take pictures with them during the launching of her album Celestine at Eastwood mall recently.
Toni said she wasn't even aware that there was an issue like that. She related that she tries as much as possible to entertain all her fans because they are very important to her. Also, she doesn't know if there were fans who felt neglected because she was in a rush to go back to ABS-CBN then since there's a live show for "Pinoy Big Brother."
She had a hectic schedule back then, the actress-singer-TV host said. "Mahalaga sa akin ang fans, kaya hangga’t maa-accommodate ko sila, siyempre po ay gagawin natin iyon."
Mommy Pinty, Toni's mother and manager, said through a text message that the fans would let her know if there was an issue like that. She is sure it's not true because Toni's fans understand that she needed to be at the ABS-CBN compound for "Pinoy Big Brother" that day.
The crew and staff for PBB were texting Toni back then to hurry up and go back to the network because the show was about to start. That's the hardest part of doing a live show, Mommy Pinty said.
That time, it was beyond Toni's control, her mother-manager said.
Meanwhile, Toni is one of the special guests for the opening of Cinema One Anniversary Film Festival called the Libreng Sine Handog of Cinema One on July 5 at the SM Megamall.
The event is part of the 20th anniversary celebration of Cinema One.
One of Toni's movies, "Starting Over Again," was featured during the opening ceremony. Other movies shown were "Bride For Rent," "On The Job," "Blue Bustamante," "Melodrama Negra," "Mater Dolorosa," "Pagpag," "Shift," "Oro Plata Mata" and "Slumber Party."
Toni said she is very thankful to Cinema One because she is able to see her former movies, whose copies she didn't have on DVD. "And I’m very thankful kasi, tuwing pinalalabas nila iyon ay nabibigyan nila ang mga taong hindi siya napanood, na masilip ang mga pelikulang nagawa natin noon."
Toni and Piolo Pascual will also sing the thank-you theme song for the cable channel's 20th anniversary. She feels grateful for having been chosen by Cinema One to lead the song.
This is the first time for Toni and Piolo to collaborate on a big project for Cinema One. They are already excited for the upcoming celebration, she added.
Toni said she is a big fan of Filipino movies, especially the films that were done excellently in the past. She is fond of comedies such as those made by Rene Requiestas, Chiquito, Dolphy, Panchito and Babalu.
Until now, when she watches those movies in Cinema One, she still laughs at the same scenes.
Toni is known for romantic comedies. What kind of romantic comedy movies she likes in the past? There's a difference in the genre from then and now, so Toni said she just liked the movies done by Regine Velasquez.
