TONI Gonzaga’s sitcom Home Sweetie Home was able to survive since its leading man John Lloyd Cruz decided to lead a tranquil existence. The sitcom’s following has veritably increased when Piolo Pascual came into the picture.
To date, it has been airing for the past four years at the Kapamilya Network since it’s pilot episode sometime in January 2014.
“So far sa ngayon, wala pa namang advice sa amin,” declared Toni with insouciance. “Pero if ever… kasi noong pumirma ako sa contract ko under ABS-CBN, part pa ‘yung Home Sweetie Home. So hindi ko pa alam.”
So far, she supposedly signed a two year contract last month.
“Pero siyempre,” she said somewhat uncertain, “things can actually change. Hindi rin natin masasabi.”
There are some talk circulating that Home Sweetie Home would be replaced with a new sitcom featuring the husband and wife team of Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez.
Oo nga’t nag-iba na ang kuwento ng HSH but in spite of that, it was able to hold on to its high ratings.
Anyway, the press had a grand time talking to Toni at the presscon of their 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Mary, Marry Me.
Toni’s owned movie outfit TinCan Productions is the producer of this rom-com movie.
As a follow-up question, Toni was asked if she feels that John Lloyd has left her when it abandoned their soap?
“Hindi kami nagkausap na,” she quipped. “Pero, naiintindihan ko naman ang mga artista. May kanya-kanyang breaking point ang lahat ng tao.
“It just so happened na kami ang magkatrabaho at that time. Pero, I didn’t take anything personally kasi trabaho lang naman lahat, e. Huwag mong pepersonalin ang mga bagay-bagay lalo na kung trabaho, so okay lang.”
And with that, ito po ang Kuya Pete ninyo na nagsasabing, Christopher, my son, I love you very. very much, my love for you goes beyond eternity.
Adios. Mabalos. I always need you, Nhong!
