BB Gandanghari hopes to reconcile with Robin Padilla-A A +A
Monday, March 4, 2013
BB Gandanghari shared that he is still going through some rough patches every now and then, and said his estranged relationship with his brother, Robin Padilla, still affects him.
Sun.Star was able to interview the actor during the 2012 Golden Screen TV Awards where BB debut his new shorter hairstyle.
The new do sparked rumors that he's trying to forget something in his life. When asked about it, BB immediately replied: "Sabi nga nila na pag nagpaputol ka ng buhok meron kang gustong baguhin or kalimutan."
He said this is his shortest cut in the last eight years and it refreshes him, especially now he's going through some things. BB equates hairstyle as a good start on the changes he wants to achieve.
"Lahat naman ng tao may pinagdadaanan. Ang importante kaya mo yung pinagdadaanan mo. Hindi ka naman nagkukulang sa prayers."
One of the challenges he's facing now is the cold treatment he's getting from Robin after revealing his gender preference a couple of years back.
"I think it's common knowledge what's going on with me and my brother and I wouldn't deny that it's affecting me because he's my brother," BB said.
BB said he doesn't want to initiate any reconciliation now but believes that time will come that they will both kiss and make up.
"May mga bagay talaga na you don't push. You just wait for the proper time and I guess it will come. Sabi nga nila pwede mong kalimutan ang lahat pero hindi ang kapatid. I'm not losing hope," he said.
He said that he feels more comfortable now knowing that his other siblings and mother, Eva Carino, are more open and understanding on his gender and choices in life.
"Si Mama dumadating na siya sa puntong na ge-gets na niya. Natatanggap na niya. Si Rommel, ever since naman ay naiintindihan niya," he said.
With all the issues he's facing in Manila, BB said what keeping him sane is going back and forth to the United States. It is his way of relaxing and reflecting on what he has done and what he intend to do, he said.
"That's my balance. When I'm in the States wala akong ini-explain, walang nagtatanong bakit. I go back and forth. Hindi ko sinasabi na I don't like this because this is part of work. Philippines is actually workplace for me," he said.
But he said he's happy that his family is behind him now. He's more comfortable with his own skin, at peace with himself and inspired with he's doing.
"That makes me going (family). Kasi napakahirap kung hindi kasi alam mong ikaw lang mag-isa," he ended. (Sunnex)
