Robin Padilla doesn't want brother Bebe Gandanghari to undergo sex change operation


071911-robin_main.jpgWhile Robin Padilla is enjoying a successful showbiz career, he is also hounded by controversial questions concerning his brothers. His older brother Royette Padilla recently faced mauling charges filed by his own wife, but she later on withdrew the case. During the media launch of his new cellphone endorsement, Robin commented, “Away mag-asawa ‘yun. Wala kinalaman sa akin ‘yun. Hindi ko na kinausap ‘yung kuya kong ‘yun. Hangga’t hindi hinihingi ang opinyon ko, ng kapatid ko, kamag-anak, kaibigan ko. May kanya-kanya kaming teleserye ng buhay. Ipinagdasal ko na maayos agad at naayos naman agad. Hindi naman ako naapektuhan.”

The action star also asked the public not to easily pass judgments on Royette. “Si Kuya Royette, kung makikilala niyo lang talaga, marami kayong masasabing mabuti. Away mag-asawa lang ‘yun. Lahat ng mag-asawa nagkakaproblema.”

Robin was also asked about how his brother, former screen heartthrob Rustom Padilla turned transvestite now named Bebe Gandanghari, was doing. Nothing much has been heard about Bebe who is said to be currently enjoying a private life in the US. “May sarili rin siyang teleserye,” said Robin. He went on to joke, “Si Tom at si Royette ay magkaiba. Isang sumobra sa pagkalalaki, ‘yung isa naman…ha ha ha!

Robin expressed his happeness about Bebe’s choice on how to live his life. “Happy ako para kay Bebe. Hindi pa kami nagkakausap. Alam niyo naman ‘yun, mahilig sa sorpresa. Buti na lang shock proof na ako kaya hindi na ako masyadong nabibigla sa mga sorpresa.

The actor/director revealed that during the time Bebe was active in showbiz in the Philippines, they were supposed to collaborate on a movie project. “Meron nga dapat siyang gagawin pelikula sa production namin, ‘yung Kill Bebe. Hindi niya ginawa kasi gusto niya manggaling muna siya sa America bago niya gawin. Bayad na siya dun. Sisingilin namin siya pagbalik niya, ha ha ha!

While Bebe is away from the limelight, there are rumors that he is planning to finally undergo sex change operation. When asked about this, Robin immediately expressed his personal objection on the possibility. “‘Wag naman. Sa opinyon ko, ‘wag na. Okay naman na siya.”

What would Robin do if Bebe comes home as “transgendered?” “Mukhang kakailanganin kong magbakasyon kapag nagkaganon. Masa-shock talaga ako,” the actor answered.
