TV personality Toni Gonzaga received more attention than the winners in this year’s Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant.
The public is torn with their comments on Toni’s style of hosting as some claim that her over-confidence in hosting led to her appearing to be too full of herself, to the point of shaming some of the contestants.
Some though found Toni’s brand of hosting as funny and entertaining.
However, former beauty queen Nina Ricci Alagao was one of the few who left some harsh comments against the said tv host. According to Alagao’s post, “Try going back 15 years to the time when she was brown-skinned, her nose untrimmed; to the time when she would pass by and you not take notice… I find nothing wrong in looking back and seeing much better life has become. It will be a constant reminder that we should aspire to improve ourselves every day and with every experience. It will be a constant reminder that we should aspire to improve ourselves every day and with every experience.”
Alagao didn’t mention any name from her posts but it was clear to the netizens that she was referring to the newly engaged Gonzaga.
But the beauty queen turned actress already apologized to Toni. According to her, “I apologize. If it will appease Toni’s fans, I will apologize.”
Mommy Pinty, Toni’s mom and manager managed to comment on her daughter’s critics, especially that of Alagao’s recent post. Mommy Pinty said that they accept Nina’s apology and that when it comes to her daughter’s hosting stint, “iba’t iba ang panlasa ng mga tao pagdating sa pagho-host,” admitting that they can’t please everybody.
