Queenie Padilla denies Mariel Rodriguez is a bad influence on her and her sister Kylie


032911-queenie_main.jpgDuring a March 28 press con, Queenie Padilla said that there’s no truth to recent reports that Mariel Rodriguez is a bad influence on her and her sister Kylie. “Hindi po, napakabait po ni Tita Mariel. We’re close friends. May respeto naman kami. Minsan kapag magkausap kami ni papa, tatanungin niya ako, ‘Are you okay [na andito ako]? Baka hindi ka kumportable.’ ‘Hindi, okay lang po tita.’ Minsan bumibibisita ako sa [bahay nila sa] Fairview. Minsan iniimbita nila ako na manood ng sine tapos kumain, ganon po. My sister Kylie and I are okay with Tita Mariel. I love Tita Mariel,” she reiterated.

Queenie further stressed that she has actually gotten used to having a stepmom whom she could also confide in about her love life. “In general na lang, ang sabi niya sa akin huwag masyado magmadali and enjoy life talaga muna. Na-inspire ako sa kanya dahil she married at the right age, tapos hanggang ngayon nagwo-work pa rin siya. Siguro ang ibig sabihin ni Tita Mariel, huwag magmadali magpakasal kung hindi ka sigurado. Marami akong natutunan sa kanya. Bilang isang artista, binibigyan din niya naman ako ng tips sa fashion.”  

Apparently, the issue about Mariel being a bad influence on Robin Padilla’s children came out after Liezl Sicangco expressed her disapproval of Queenie and Kylie’s choice of skimpy outfits ever since they entered showbiz. “Actually misunderstanding lang yun. Inexplain ko naman sa kanya na, ‘Ma hindi naman ako magiging full-on sexy. Lahat naman ng susuotin ko disente pa rin.’ Pinapaalaala lang ni mama na ‘wag namin kakalimutan yung faith namin,” said Queenie, referring to the restrictions of Islam concerning women’s behavior and manner of dressing.

Queenie added that her sister Kylie also had the chance to talk to her mom about the whole controversy. As it is, Liezl seemed to be more disappointed with Kylie who rarely keeps in touch with her nowadays. “Opo, tumawag din si Kylie after ng interview niya (Liezl). Maayos naman po sila. Wala naman silang pinag-aawayan. E kasi itong kapatid ko hindi masyadong close kay mama. Pero ngayon parang nagiging close naman. Actually, I am excited kasi baka sa July magbakasyon sila nila Ali dito sa Manila.”
