Monday, October 8, 2012
MULTIMEDIA star Toni Gonzaga said she doesn't mind the strict rules being imposed by her parents when it comes to her love life and showbiz career.
Toni is one of the few local artists who is being managed by her parents.
According to "The Buzz" host, it mostly works for her advantage that her mother, Pinty, manages her career because the latter knows her needs on and off camera.
Although she's following a strict curfew and is not allowed to go on vacation or out of town trips with long-time boyfriend Paul Soriano, Toni said she's following it religiously to respect her parent's wishes.
Toni also clarified that when it comes to personal issues, her parents gives her the freedom to choose and decide for herself.
"Merong trust talaga kasi maraming instances sa buhay ko na napatunayan ko talaga na pinagkatiwalaan ako ng mga magulang ko. Protective lang sila pero hindi over protective," she said.
"Actually minsan nararamdaman ko din na pag may konting nangyari, consult kay Mommy, consult kay Daddy. Okay din yun kasi may kadamay ako sa mga problema ko. Pero tinuturuan din naman nila akong maging independent," she said.
She said her mom would constantly remind her that as long as she's single and lives in their family house, she must respect their rules because when the day comes that she's ready to build her own family, her parents would not interfere anymore.
Although for some her parents may seem to be over protective, Toni said she understands where her Mom and Dad are coming from because they only wish her the best.
"Likas naman yun sa magulang na protektuhan ang anak nila lalo na si Mommy kasi manager ko din. Alagang alaga, hindi lang yung career ko, pati yung imahe ko eh pine-preserve niya," she said.
At 28, Toni said she wouldn't be able to make it big in the entertainment business without the help from her parents'.
If she will have kids of her own, she said she'll also do the same things and rules to her children. (Sunnex)
