Mariel Rodriguez’s realizations

Experience, they say, is the best teacher. And Mariel Rodriguez has learned a lot about herself and about marriage from the hullabaloo that her jealous fit over husband Robin Padilla’s love scene with co-star Kris Aquino created. “I learned that hindi dapat masyadong impulsive,” she told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! in-between segments of TV5’s “Wowowillie,” which she hosts with main man Wilie Revillame, Grace Lee, Camille Villar and Arci Munoz.

Sometimes, without you knowing it, Mariel explains, your actions are already affecting a lot of people. Your emotions just carry you away and yout blurt out what you feel. “E ako , transparent. I express what I feel,” she goes on. That jealous fit, Mariel adds, has nothing to do with Kris, or even their “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw” co-star nAnne Curtis, both of whom vowed never to get intimate with Robin on screen.

It’s all about how Mariel felt like a wronged wife who thought what she saw on TV was something that should happen only between her and her husband. “It was just shocking,” she recalls.

Not controlling Mariel wants to make it clear that she’s not the controlling type who wants to dictate on her husband. “To those who think na makitid ang utak ko, I say, ‘Hello! Robin and I have been married almost three years and isang beses lang ako nag react. I don’t even look at his scripts .”

Other people’s opinions about her, states Mariel, don’t count. But Robin’s attitude towards her does. And Mariel realizes how lucky she is because Robin takes her for what she is. “I realize all the more that marriage is for better or for worse. Tanggap ni Robin ang topak ko. He loves me for what I am.”

In return, Robin has Mariel’s total obedience in things big and small. She dropped by the recent Philippine Entertaiment Portal (PEP) sixth anniversary celebration and the launch of its PEP List 2012 awards to represent Robin, who can’t make it that day.

Mariel flew with Robin to Tawi-Tawi, where she embarked on a humanitarian mission in the midst of the Sabah controversy. She knew the risks involved, but Mariel didn’t care. All she knew was that Mindanao is close to her husband’s heart, and she must support him. “He laid down his cards before we got married,” recalls Mariel.

Robin didn’t force her to go to Tawi-Tawi. He even asked if she’s up to it. Mariel didn’t regret what she did. Seeing the happiness in our Muslim brothers’ eyes when they saw her was more than enough.

New purpose “Kahit may pinagdadaanan sila, our mere presence made them happy. Blessed ako kasi may purpose ako sa mundo, kahit for a while. That purpose is to make people happy, something we do here in ‘Wowowillie.’ But this one goes even deeper.” Mariel would have gone to Jolo on the day of this interview, but the pilots were suddenly barred from flying there.

Mariel would have loved playing her new role: that of a peace ambassador of sorts. “Hindi mo naman kailangan ng title para sa ano mang gusto mong gawin,” she smiles. This, and many other things she’s learning as Robin’s wife, are a wake-up call for Mariel. Now, she’s not just a wife. She’s also a peace negotiator, a stepmom, etc.

“Robin is spontaneous,” she observes. “Bukas, sasabihin niya na punta kami dito. You have to ride along.”
That’s just fine with Mariel, who admits being impulsive herself. The two are a perfect match. And everything – even their decision to postpone having a child of their own – is falling into place.

Now, Mariel can’t wait for her next adventure with the man she loves and will continue to love – no matter what others think or say.

Mariel Rodriguez Interviewed BB Gandanghari

After the interviewed of Mariel Rodriguez to BB Gandanghari in Paparazzi last March 17, the PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) interviewed her.

Mariel is the one who assigned to interview BB Gandanghari. She said, “Kasi yun talaga ang napagkasunduan talaga nilang dalawang magkapatid [BB and Robin] na uuwi siya dito, ‘tapos mai-interview ko siya. So, very thankful ako kasi grinant niya yung interview yun sa akin. Sayang nga, e, kasi we were pressed for time.  Pero feeling ko naman, yung important na questions, naitanong ko. Yung tungkol sa kanyang ano… sex change. Kasi yun talaga yung maraming gustong makaalam at gustong tuldukan, siyempre. Kanina naman, she said na ang nakakaalam lang what’s in between her legs ay siya and, hopefully, yung partner niya. Dahil doon sa sinabi niyang ‘hopefully yung partner,’ doon ko na nakuha na I don’t have to ask it anymore, wala.”

Mariel asked BB Gandanghari about her sex change. “Ahm, sinabi ko sa kanya na ‘I’m gonna have to ask you.’ Kasi nahihiya ako… I don’t know how to start it, di ba? Hindi ka naman maggu-go up to anyone and say na, ‘So, ano? Nagpaano ka ba?’ Di ba? Hindi mo yun gagawin. What more your sister-in-law. Siyempre, may respeto ako dahil kapatid ito ni Robin.May respeto ako sa lahat ng ini-interview ko, mas lalo yung respeto ko dahil kapatid ito ni Robin. Medyo nagbigay ako ng kaunting pasintabi… I wil have to ask what people want to know.And bilang hindi naman bago si BB Gandanghari sa industriya, alam niyang kasama naman yun.” Mariel said.

Robin and BB Gandanghari reaction when they see each other again.”Siyempre, nagkagulatan. Hindi naman mawawala yun. Siyempre, love ni Robin si BB bilang kapatid. So, siyempre, kung ano yung magpapasaya kay BB, sino ba naman siya para hadlangan yun?” Mariel said.

Robin accepts BB Gandanghari on what she is right now. Mariel said, “Uhm… ako ang pananaw ko… personal view ko ito, ha? Robin, bilang isang kapatid, tanggap niya yun dahil kapatid niya yun, e. Pero Robin, bilang isang Muslim, mahirap. So, doon nagkakaroon ng… may kaunting…Siyempre ano, even on my part, hindi ko naman siya puwedeng, ‘Okey ka lang ba? Hindi ko naman siya puwedeng ganunin. ‘Game ka ba? Okey ka ba?’”

Mariel also accepts BB Gandanghari.”Siyempre, wala namang hindi… kasi hindi ko naman nakilala si Rustom, e, you know? Si BB ang kakilala ko. I mean, si Rustom, na-meet ko siya sa PBB kasi naghu-host ako nun. Doon ko siya nakilala.  Pero yung nakausap, never ko talagang nakausap si Rustom. Since nung pumasok ako sa pamilya nila [Padilla], si BB na po ang nakilala ko. So, parang bakit hindi naman ako matutuwa, e, yun ang kakilala ko? So, hindi ko alam ang difference.”, she said.

Mariel didn’t answer the question if the other members of the Padilla family accept BB, BB was no comment when Mariel asked her this question. Mariel said, “Kung siya nag-no comment, e, di sino ba naman ako para mag-comment, di ba? Mas lalong ako ang pinakawalang karapatan para mag-comment on her behalf para sa family nila. So, kanina, nasasagot ko dahil yung tungkol kay Robin. Yun, may kaunting karapatan doon.”

Mariel is not the Manager of BB Gandanghari. “Uhm, hindi, hindi. Dito po nagtatapos sa interview na ito para lang maitawid yung interview na ito. Actually, she’s staying with the other sisters, si Ate Rema.Yun naman si Ate Rema ang nagbigay sa kanya ng BB Gandanghari [na pangalan]. They’re very close, sinundo pa siya sa airport.Feeling ko nga, at point, kasi ang daming nagti-text sa akin, manager ba ako ni BB?Ang daming nagti-text sa akin, ‘Puwede ba namin ma-interview si BB? Can I get in touch with BB? So, ako naman, reply naman ako. Pero yung time na yun, hindi ko masabing sa akin ang first interview. Siyempre, si BB na yung nag-ano.” Mariel said.

The PEP asked Mariel if BB still use her past name Rustom Padilla in her passport now. Mariel answered, “Alam mo, napakagandang tanong ‘yan… Actually, I know, but I don’t know if I should say kasi she’s now BB Gandanghari. May alam ako, pero… sana tinanong ninyo siya kanina. Actually, marami ang nagtatanong sa akin niyan. Yun talaga ang mapaisip ka sa passport. Pero yung picture, paano na yun? Pero, di ba, kahit sunglasses, eyeglasses, cap, pinatatanggal sa Immigration?”

Shalani Soledad Officially became Mrs. Roman Romulo

The much awaited wedding of the year has come into reality last January 22, 2012 when Shalani Soledad exchanged ‘I dos’ with Roman Romulo. The exchange of vows happened at the St. Benedict Church in Ayala Westgrove, Sta. Rosa, Laguna. The wedding mass was presided by His Eminence Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales.

In the Cardinal’s homily, he said that the couple was brought together neither by “economic welfare” nor by “political status,” hence by love.

He adviced Shalani and Roman to be “kind,” “patient,” “understanding,” “not to be jealous,” and most of all “do what God calls you to do.”

As part of Shalani’s wedding vow, she said: “You are my home. You are my happiness…”

On the other hand, Roman told his bride: “I waited 44 years before God gave me this favor.”

The bride walked down the aisle alone at first but was accompanied halfway by his brother who was the instrument to bring Shalani in the world of politics. Next was his biological father. And the last man who walked with her down the aisle was his stepfather, Dan Yumol.

Among the celebrities who witnessed the wedding ceremony were Senator Bong Revilla with wife Lani Mercado, Richard Gomez with wife Lucy Torres, Mariel Rodriguez, Migz Zubiri with wife Audrey, Valerie Concepcion, and Marco Alcaraz with girlfriend Precious Lara Quigaman.

The program was short and the 800 guests enjoyed the sumptuous food which was prepared by Florabel Catering.

Robin Padilla is busy promoting his new teleserye Guns and Roses with leading lady Bea Alonzo.

Ayaw ko yung (maisip niyang) makakalimutan ko siya, masakit sa akin yun. Kasi ang pag-ibig namin lalo siyang umaakyat hindi naman siya (pababa),” he added.

Toni Gonzaga chose to count her blessings.

After the success of the romantic comedy movie “My Amnesia Girl” where Toni  teamed-up with “Imortal”  star John Lloyd Cruz,  She was supposed to team-up with Bossing Vic Sotto for a movie, but later on it was canceled due to her hosting project in Kapamilya Network which later on revealed to be Happy Yipee Yehey. The program is a noontime show that is a matched aired with Vic Sotto’s program “Eat Bulaga”. She was replaced by Bea Alonzo in the movie project.
Toni was asked if she felt sad or pity for not pushing the project with her. The TV host/singer that turn into a box-office queen  just said that she’s not sad or pity for the things that didn’t happen, she believes that God has better plans for her. She added that she is happy with HYY,  and have many blessings to count so why focus on the thing that didn’t push through.

After having misunderstandings, Toni was reunited with her friend/co-host Mariel Rodriguez with their other friend that was special guest Bianca Gonzales. She admitted that she missed it, their friendship. Mariel’s Husband Robin Padilla was a special  guest also in their show Happy Yipee Yehey last Saturday.

Even though Vic Sotto-Toni Gonzaga tandem didn’t happen, Toni revealed her upcoming movie under Star Cinema. A comedy movie together with Eugene Domingo.

Mariel gets even with Zanjoe

MARIEL Rodriguez does a controversial scene with Rafael Rosell in “Precious Hearts Romances Presents Bud Brothers.” It shows her sleeping with Rafael in a sexy Hot Pink lingerie, with her hand placed on the top of the crotch of his boxer shorts. “Yun ang gusto ng director naming si Cathy Molina, e,” she says, sounding defensive.

“Kasi eksena ‘yun mismo from the novel on which we based the story, ‘My Golly, Wow Betsy’ by Rose Tan,” says the director. “Nahirapan nga kaming i-adapt ‘yun kasi may pagka-sexy, e hapon ang timeslot namin.”

They are both mature person and they know that its for work. I think Mariel shows that she can be both “pa-cute” and sexy at the same time. She is in a right age to do the mature stuff.
