Singer-actress Donnlyn Bartolome took to Instagram to share her great work experience with the famous Kapamilya vlogger Alex Gonzaga last night, September 26, amid the snubbing allegations being hurled at the latter.
Alex made headlines recently after she was accused of allegedly snubbing Kapuso stars Rita Daniela and Ken Chan at an airport lounge in Davao.
It was veteran entertainment manager and columnist Lolit Solit who made the initial call-out move to Alex by writing a lenghty piece of the alleged airport incident in her Instagram page last Monday, September 23. In Lolit’s post, Rita and Ken, who are avid fans of Alex’s vlog, supposedly approached Alex to greet her but the latter allegedly snubbed the two.
Alex was quick to deny the issue by directly posting on Lolit’s IG’s comment section. Alex added that they all even shook hands at that time.
Rita and Ken also recently revealed that they’ve already talked to Alex and that their encounter must have been misinterpreted by the people who witnessed them.
Now, amidst the issue, Alex’s fellow vlogger Donnalyn took her chance to narrate her first meeting with Alex claiming that the Kapamilya artist showed nothing but kindness towards her. Clearly, Donnalyn’s move was to present a side of Alex that is opposite to what she’s being perceived by some.
“Share ko lang experience ko kay Alex, this is the perfect time to tell all of you about this. Me and Alex don’t know each other personally,” Donnalyn wrote on her IG post. “I love her personality and I wanted her to be a part of my music video ‘Di Lahat’ to represent the skinny girls with me.”
Donallyn went on recalling: “I sent her a DM and to my surprise she replied ‘Hello!! No problem!! Go!! 😍 Wuhooo!! Congrats in advance ❤️❤️’ and gave me her RM’s number to coordinate but on the day of the shoot 😥 she had an emergency wisdom tooth extraction, the right side of her face was swollen and it would have been understandable if she cancels.
“We were just waiting for her RM to say it. BUT NO. She insisted to be there, I witnessed her swollen face and you can see sa mata niya she’s not feeling well but she made sure she made me feel like I wasn’t a bother.
“Our first meeting was awkward kasi sobra akong hiyang hiya that she was there though she wasn’t okay (as you can see sa video) at the same time she can’t move too much ‘cause she must have been in pain pero gosh she still danced with me, see? Siya pa ang apologetic!! Jusko po ang humble 😭.”
Donnalyn was also honest to say that Alex will not gain anything from her since she doesn’t have that much TV appearances and as much online followers as Alex, who now has 1.5 million on IG and 1.48 million subscribers on YouTube.
“Sino ba ako? No teleseryes, different management, less following, she had nothing to gain! Can’t thank you enough @cathygonzaga 😍 SHE DIDN’T EVEN ACCEPT HER TOKEN for her appearance and we know how valuable her time is 🥺,” Donnalyn stressed.
She added: “Kindhearted people are often misunderstood, but we should realize people only understand from their level of perception and they deserve no explanation. 🥰.”
Alex, in return, was beyond grateful for her kind words and thanked her on the comment section saying, “Donna.. you didn’t have to.. thank you.. you were such a delight to work with! I'm so happy to be part of your successful song.”
Alex’s sister Toni Gonzaga also left a comment on her post with heart emojis.
