Alex Gonzaga didn’t dodge the teasing over her cake-smearing issue during her sister Toni Gonzaga’s 20th anniversary concert.
The younger Gonzaga was a guest performer at Toni’s one-night show held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on the latter’s birthday on Friday.
“Pinag-usapan ‘yan for almost three days,” Alex who performed a rendition of Maymay Entrata’s Amakabogera, uttered when the stage LED display changed to “I am Alex,” a spoof of her sister’s “I am Toni” concert poster.
“Kaya pala trending ka for three days,” Toni joked, referring to Alex being on Twitter’s trending topics this week after drawing flak for smudging cake icing on a waiter’s forehead during her birthday party.
“Nakita mo, birthday ko, wala, nilayo namin lahat ng cake sa’yo,” added Toni.
“Nagbago na ‘ko hindi nako ganun. ‘Yan ho ang pinakapinagiiwasan ko ngayon, mga cake,” Alex said in a video shared by comedian and Tropang Lol co-host Wacky Kiray.
“Talagang lumalayo na ko diyan ngayon,” Alex added in jest.
“So ‘pag birthday mo ang handa na?,” Toni asked Alex.
“Ice cream, bilo-bilo, wala na tayong mga ganun (ice cream), Tine. Nagbago na ko Tine, I’m a changed person.”
Rapper Andrew E also graced Toni’s birthday-anniversary concert and joined the siblings’ banter on stage.
“Mahirap na mahirap na baka may cake kang dala,” Andrew told Alex in a singing tone after the actress-vlogger asked why he seemed to be distancing himself from her.
“Greatest fear ko na ‘yan. Death? cake? Cake! Ayoko na nagbago na ako,” mused Alex.
Alex has earlier apologized over the controversy involving a waiter, with the latter telling in a handwritten letter that the actress personally went to his workplace to offer her apologies.
The 35-year-old also said sorry to her family, for causing “pain and embarrassment”.
“On my birthday, God taught me a hard and important lesson. Humility, kindness and better judgment,” said Alex.
