During a radio interview with RX 93.1, Toni admitted that the two of them used to get on each other's nerves daily because she was so overprotective of her sister. It even came to a point that their mother Mommy Pinty had to intervene!
"Lagi ko siyang pinapagalitan, lagi ko siyang kinokorek...Iyon ang sabi ko sa kanya. 'Gusto mo ba ang life pa ang magpa-mature sa iyo? Gusto mo ba iyong mga tao iyong magturo sa iyo how to grow up? You should learn how to grow up on [your own]. Don't grow up in public.'"
From acting mom to friend
Toni said she used to do this every time Alex would trend online. She would be the first one to text her sister which will then result in the two of them fighting.
Things have changed for the better though after their mother and Toni's husband, Paul Soriano, talked her out of it. While Mommy Pinty assured her that she'll be the one taking care of Alex, her husband reminded her that she should love her sister for who she is.
"You know what, thank God for my husband. Very good naman siya in explaining to me na, 'You know what, you can never change your sister anymore. You can just love her and accept her for who she is.'"
"When Paul told me that, 'Oo nga noh. I'm always mad at her. I'm always scolding her...Sabi ko, instead of being her mother, I should be a friend sometimes. Iyon na [ang] dynamics namin ngayon."
Alex also showed her love for her older sister during Toni's birthday last January 20: "Most of the time, I would hate you for being so overly protective of me, but [I] would always end up loving you more because I would realize you just want the best for me. Thank you for always taking care of me, sisss!"
Aww, just how sweet can these two be?
