Actor Matteo Guidicelli has called out social media superstar Alex Gonzaga for her alleged insensitive jokes, sending both stars on the trending list on social media.
Matteo, 32, called her attention on national television during an episode of “Lunch Out Loud” on TV5 on Thursday, Aug. 11.
“May konting mensahe po ako sa tropang LOL, especially sa’yo Alex. Napanaginipan ko ito kagabi at nagpray ako, na tigilan na natin ang magbiro sa mga asawa natin kay konsehal at sa asawa ko dahil mga ‘ex’ na yan eh. Kagabi umiyak na talaga ako dahil sa’yo. Nasasaktan ako para sa asawa ko. I-respeto na lang natin ang mga asawa natin,” said Matteo, husband of Sarah Geronimo.
Previously, in another “LOL” episode, both Matteo and Alex joked about their exes. In their younger years, Matteo was in a relationship with actress Maja Salvador; while Alex was linked to former Calla Lily frontman Kean Cipriano.
Alex, 34, is known for her wild jokes, pranks, and antics on social media.
In an exclusive interview with the Manila Bulletin via Zoom in April, Alex was asked about playing pranks on her family and friends.
“Madalas naman sinasabi ko sa kanila na may prank ako para hindi naman sila mapikon,” said Alex, who is married to Councilor Mikee Morada of Lipa City in Batangas.
