There is no doubt that Alex Gonzaga is one of the frankest, most talkative, and loudest celebrities out there. It’s not a surprise – after all, her sister is Toni Gonzaga, who is one of the most known celebrity host out there.
Toni has the “Gift of Gab” while Alex is her funnier and crazier version. What happens when her jokes get way out of hand? Take this incident that happened during the 33rd Philippine Movie and Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Movies.
According to ABS-CBN Push, Alex said something controversial when Luis Manzano received the “Darling of the Press” award. Well, the two are known jokesters and close friends so it does not come as a surprise that they would exchange words in such an event.
What happened? According to the report, Alex blurted out, “Magkano mo nabili ang award mo?”
To which Luis replied, “180.”
Boom. Was he for real? Joking? It’s up to them to tell the truth but one’s thing is for sure – it was a controversial answer that got the netizens talking. After all, the showbiz industry is full of intrigues and drama.
Some actors and actresses have been known to manipulate award-giving bodies and members.
Who were Luis’ contenders? Those who were considered for the “Darling of the Press” award were Harlene Bautista, Kim Chiu, KC Concepcion, Kaye Dacer, Xian Lim, Piolo Pascual, and Regine Tolentino.
You may have noticed that not all of them were actors – Luis is a host, for one. It could be assumed that the category was not only limited to showbiz personalities.
Kaye Dacer and Harlene Bautista are not active in acting but even so, they were listed among the contenders.
What did Alex answer after Luis’ quip? The report didn’t say anything else but as usual, netizens figured Alex’s comment was unnecessary and even “tactless.”
