Dina Bonnevie finally breaks silence on Alex Gonzaga issue: ‘it didn’t come without reason’

After a long-lived controversy with her co-actor Alex Gonzaga over a decade ago, Dina Bonnevie finally breaks her silence. Over the past few years, hearsay of a possible beef between the former co-stars started when an old interview with the veteran actress resurfaced.

There, she detailed how she confronted one fellow actress years ago for alleged tardiness. Despite not mentioning any names, people were quick to point at Alex who spoke up about a seemingly similar encounter in her podcast.

In an exclusive interview with Boy Abunda, the veteran actress finally put the rumors to an end. “Yes, it was Alex Gonzaga. But that happened 12 years ago. We were doing a teleserye then, and it didn’t come without reason.”

Dina immediately reiterated that she only confronted Alex because of her repeated tardiness. “I mean, we were working together kaya lang kasi it didn’t only happen once, twice, thrice. Hindi lang naman ako. So napag-usapan na ako yung spokesperson. We were all together, and nobody had the audacity to come up to her and talk to her. So okay, ako ang magiging spokesperson,” she said.

Despite what Alex said in her podcast, Dina clarified that she didn’t raise her voice at the actress. “So hindi rin totoo na pinagsigawan ko mula ulo hanggang paa kasi yung shooting namin nasa may simbahan. There was a chapel there somewhere in Antipolo, and then may parang rotonda dito. So that morning, late na naman siya so nagpipigil na kami. Umuusok na sila. ‘I’m gonna walk out in this set if you dont tell her off. Di ko na kaya.’ Ganyan ganyan.”

Dina continued to narrate, “So ako, sige ako lang naman may lakas ng loob. Hanggang lunch break, umalis na naman siya. Pag alis niya basa yung buhok, walang makeup. So we had to wait na naman for another three hours para makapag-tape. Syempre kumukulo na yung dugo ng lahat.”

To spill the tea, Dina mentioned how she took matters into her own hands and took advantage of their scene together to finally call out the actress for her behavior. “Ako naman sabi ko kasi may eksena siya parang iiyak siya. Eh mommy niya ko, di sya naka-iyak. Sabi ko, ‘Alex, you know why you can’t cry? It’s because you are not in touch with your emotions. You’re very indifferent to your coworkers. Honestly, I wanna talk to you. Kase, we don’t like what you’re doing that you’re always late.’”

In turn, Alex seemingly replied to Dina in a less pleasant matter, “Eh marami akong ganap eh.”

Of course, being the classy woman she is, she narrated, “Sabi ko, ‘Wait a minute, wait a minute, I’m trying to talk to you nicely. Sabi niya, ‘Eh hindi eh, di niyo nakikita yung side ko.’ Sabi ko, ‘Hindi pa pinapanganak ang babastos saken please kinakausap kita ng maayos. If you wanna stay long in this business, you cannot last if ganyan attitude mo. Na palagi kang late, dito ka pa maliligo sa set and you know you cannot even memorize your lines, di ka makaiyak.’”

The veteran also added that Alex would even get mad at Nadine Lustre, who played the role of her younger sister on the show. “Nagagalit siya kay Nadine kung nauunang umiyak si Nadine. Eh eksena daw nya yun.

“Anyway long story short, sabi ko ‘I’m not talking to you because I want to put you down. I want you to succeed in your career, I want you to be great. Granting na galing ka sa trabaho, you made a commitment to come early.’ And it only didn’t happen once (tardiness). Ang daming beses.”

Eventually, as well, at the end of the interview, Dina clarified that she had no bad blood with Alex and she had no bad feelings towards her. Things were just usually taken out of context and the supposed beef she had with Alex was nonexistent but a thing of the past.
