Carmina ready to face BB

CARMINA VillaroelMORE than a decade after their annulment, Carmina Villaroel deems herself ready to interview her former husband, Rustom Padilla, who is now known as BB Gandanghari.

Speaking on “Buzz ng Bayan,” however, she said she’s setting a condition: “Gusto ko sana magkita kami na wala munang camera. Gusto ko muna makita, gusto ko talaga siya pagmasdan.”

Carmina spoke about BB after the show aired an interview with the latter’s actor brother Robin Padilla. Clearly, she’s now letting bygones be bygones following their failed marriage and BB coming out of the closet years ago.

BB Gandanghari“Okay naman na. Kung ano ‘yung nangyari, tapos na iyon. Hindi ko lang alam if kaya ko na bang harapin.

“Parang after a while, wala na tapos na. Ang tagal tagal na. Madami pang importanteng bagay na dapat pagtuunan ng pansin,” said she.

The two were married in 1994 but called it quits in 1996. Their marriage was annulled in 2002.

While initially Carmina seemed to feel some awkwardness towards her ex (“Before, sinasagot ko oo,” she admitted to her co-hosts Boy Abunda and Janice de Belen), things finally feel different for her.

“Ngayon, nung napapanood ko … Hindi na. Nung pinapanood ko, parang wala lang,” she said.

The actress-host said that, “Feeling ko okay kaming dalawa, jive kami. Mahirap kasi magsalita. So kapag nangyari na lang, ‘yun na .”

In an interview with Bulletin Entertainment in July, Carmina had seemingly already given an interview with BB some thought. She said, “Kung dumating, kung may offer, tingnan natin. Kung hindi naman ako masyadong busy, why not?”

Before closing the segment on “Buzz,” Sunday, Carmina – who is now Mrs. Zoren Legaspi – noted, “Ang dating sa akin, iba talaga siyang tao na. Parang wala na ‘yung Rustom. Different person.” (Marjorie S. Duran/mb.com.ph)
