The Gonzaga sisters are known for being extremely talented and quirky. After all, they didn’t rise to showbiz because of being ordinary, not at all. They were both blessed with the “Gift of Gab” because of their ability to spin words at the right moment and at the right time.
Or do they?
One such incident that got the people talking was when Alex Gonzaga tactlessly left a comment when her friend Luis Manzano received the “Darling of the Press” award from the PMPC Star Awards for Movies.
According to Trending News Portal, Alex quipped, “Magkano mo nabili ang award mo?”
Of course, this particular comment didn’t escape the extremely critical public. They noted that Alex’s “wittiness” went too far. It was a tasteless remark that left the public wondering whether Alex is really “gifted” with the Gift of Gab or something else.
Little did Alex know that it would make her older sister Toni plead with her to quit showbiz altogether.

Based on ABS-CBN Push’s report, Toni wanted Alex to withdraw from her career if she continued throwing out such unnecessary comments, especially in such formal events.
She disclosed in an interview, “Ang ate ko may point siya na mag-quit na daw ako sa showbiz. Ganun level. Kasi bakit daw ganun yung mga ano ko (sinasabi ko). Pero sa akin naman, I'll just charge it to experience na minsan be careful. Pero nangyari na talaga.”
Alex admitted her wrongdoing and said that she immediately regretted her actions, especially after the public heavily bashed her for it.

She added, “Nag-move on na ako kasi I really meant no harm. Kami ni Kuya Luis Manzano ‘pag nagkikita talaga kami parang yung pinakamasasamang maiisip mo, yun ang parang affections namin sa isa't isa. Siguro nung nakita ko siya nawala lang ako sa lugar at nakalimutan ko it was an award show.”
