MANILA – “Pinoy Big Brother” host Toni Gonzaga was not able to stop her tears as she gave a heartfelt message to her sister Alex, who is the reality show’s celebrity house guest.

In the show’s Friday episode, Alex, who was originally a co-host of the program, was called into the confession room by "Kuya" to ask her whether she has been able to adjust to being a housemate.

The topic of the conversation eventually switched to Alex's relationship with Toni. Alex's confession was later shown to Toni and viewers were also able to watch the emotional reaction of the older Gonzaga.

While only a part of it was aired, ABS-CBN uploaded in its website the uncut interview of Toni about Alex’s confession.

Although she is grateful that the PBB experience will definitely help Alex, Toni said she also partly hated “Kuya” for taking away her sister from her.

“Cute na okay lang na kinuha ni Kuya si Catherine (Alex’s real name) kahit sandali lang. Pero nung pauwi na ako mag-isa, parang naiinis na ako sa kanya kasi wala akong makakausap sa gabi. Okay lang naman, sanay naman kami na hindi kami masyado nagkikita dahil sa trabaho. Pero kahit hindi kami nagkikita ni Alex… ngayon ko na-realize na ang hirap-hirap na kapag napapagalitan ako, may gusto akong sabihin, wala akong makausap kasi wala ng tao sa kabilang kwarto,” she tearfully said.

Toni said she misses having Alex around because this is the longest that both of them have been apart.

“Siya lang kasi 'yung kakampi ko sa lahat. Feeling ko okay lang akong walang kaibigan sa industriya, walang kaibigan sa labas, basta nandiyan si Alex okay lang kasi alam ko siya 'yung kakampi ko. Kahit si mommy at daddy, kapag pinapagalitan ako, ila-lock na namin 'yung door tapos sasabihin niya ‘Oo nga mali sila, kampi tayo. Oo, naniniwala ako sayo. Tama ka dun, tama ka dun.’ Lagi siyang ganun,” she said.

Toni said their temporary separation made her realize how much she values her relationship with her sister.

“Actually alam ko naman, pero ngayon ko mas napatunayan na iba yung samahan at pagmamahalan ng tunay na magkapatid kasi alam mong kahit anong mangyari, may hindi mang-iiwan sayo,” she said.

Asked to give a message to Alex, Toni said, “Miss na miss na kita. And siyempre kahit hindi mo naririnig 'yan sa bibig ko, alam mo kung gaano kita kamahal. Dalawa lang tayo kaya. ‘Di ba nga sabi ni mommy at daddy, kapag wala na silang dalawa, tayo na lang matitira. Tayo lang ang magkakampi sa lahat.”

Toni said she could not wait for the day when Alex would go out of the PBB house so they could share the same bed again.

“Ang hirap ngayon kasi magkahiwalay na nga tayo tapos… nakaka-miss ka din kausap kasi kapag ikaw ang kausap ko, lahat pwede kong sabihin sayo. Wala akong kailangang i-filter, wala akong kailangang isipin na damdamin kasi nakikinig ka talaga tapos sinasabi mo kung ano ang tama at mali,” she said.

“Paglabas mo, nandito pa rin ako. Tabi tayo matulog kasi ang tagal nating hindi nagkatabi. I miss you and I love you,” she added.
