Toni Gonzaga posts message for what she believes in, even if she’s ‘alone’

MANILA—TV-host/actress Toni Gonzaga posted recently a meaningful message about standing for what she believes is right, even if she is “alone.”

On her Instagram, Toni shared some of the photos which was taken from different campaign rallies while hosting for the Uniteam of now presumptive President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and presumptive vice president Sara Duterte.

In her caption, Toni said, “In the end…. Stand up for what you believe is right. Even if it means standing up…. Alone.”

On endorsing Uniteam

It looks like this is related to how Toni was bashed after she first publicly announced her support for Bongbong Marcos during the first rally held at the Phillippine Arena on February 8, 2022’

During that time, Toni was still the resident host of Kapamilya reality show Pinoy Big Brother.

ABS CBN was her home network for the past 17 years where she was given good breaks on television, movies and music industry. And many were surprised when she suddenly endorsed BBM-Sara tandem including the senatorial lineup of Uniteam.

Also included in the senatorial line-up was Sagip party-list Representative Rodante Marcoleta, who openly stated during his campaign that he was one of those who moved for the shutting down of ABS CBN. He eventually backed out of the senatorial race.

According to those who were not in favor of Toni’s decision, she failed to stand on her statement in July 2020 when she said,  “Sa lahat ng nasa posisyon ngayon, hindi namin makakalimutan ang ginawa n’yo sa mga trabahador ng ABS-CBN.”

It was on July 9, 2020 when the Congress disapproved the  franchise renewal application submitted by ABS-CBN.

Amid the questioning from the Kapamilya supporters regarding her “delicadeza,” Toni resigned from the show Pinoy Big Brother where she was the resident host for 16 years.

Toni congratulates BBM

On the other hand, the TV host-actress has sent her early message of congratulations to presumptive president Ferdinand Marcos Jr.Based on the quick count, Bongbong Marcos won in landslide victory with 31,104,175 votes.

On her Instagram story on May 10, Toni said, “Congratulations, Ninong Bong…”

Bongbong Marcos was one of the godfathers of Toni and Paul Soriano during their wedding and Liza Araneta-Marcos is Paul’s aunt. It was Paul who did the campaign video for the former senator. Paul also congratulated his Tito Bong.

In Toni’s latest Instagram post, there were other celebrities who said that she is not alone in her support for her candidate.

“Bilib na bilib kami sayo. Mas lalo kami humanga sayo. YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND!!!! Congratulations,”  Mariel Rodriguez said.

Mariel’s husband Robin Padilla who topped the senatorial race, was endorsed by UniTeam, by PDP-Laban, and even President Rodrigo Duterte.

Karla Estrada also told Toni, “You won’t stand alone! Never!” Karla was a third nominee of Tingog partylist and was one of the celebrities who performed in UniTeam rallies.

Those who sent hand-up sign with heart emojis were Alex Gonzaga, Rodjun Cruz, Daryl Ong, Zeinab Harake, and Daphne Oseña-Paez.(ECD/MTVN)
