Dressed in a light blue shirt during the interview, Tony was in high spirits. Off-air, Tony was all candid, when he was cajoled to speak about his experience being behind bars.
“Honestly, I refused to talk about it. I do not want to go there (the subject of being in prison) there anymore. But then, I thought to myself, what the heck, I needed to set the record straight, so here I am,” he said, minutes before the ‘live’ interview.
“Frankly speaking, the experience has given birth to a new Tony. And The new me knows how to evaluate himself, evaluate conditions and atmosphere he is in. It was a great experience not only to me but to the people I love,” he said.
Tony said he was grateful for the continuous support from family members and close friends.
