Is Mariel Rodriguez jealous of Robin Padilla's leading ladies?


082811-robin_main.jpgRobin Padilla said that there was no truth to the rumors that his wife Mariel Rodriguez doesn’t want him to have leading ladies anymore. It just so happens that he has no permanent ka-love team in his upcoming sitcom, Todomax. “Ay hindi naman. Kakaibang kaligayan ang ibinibigay ng leading lady. Wala lang dito. Kasi ang gusto nila iba-ibang babae ang pumasok. Magagalit si Mariel nun. Ang gusto naman ni Mariel merong akong leading lady.”

The dashing actor further explained that Mariel has always been supportive of his showbiz career; in the same way that he encourages her to be paired with different leading men. “Kasi ako gusto ko sa kanya meron siyang leading man. Tulad niyan, magte-taping siya ng Wansapanataym. Sabi ko, ‘Dapat may leading man ka.’ Artista ka e, nandito tayo sa mundo ng showbiz. Kailangan yung mga personal e itatabi natin yun.”

But Robin was honest enough to say that he prohibits Mariel to have kissing scenes in any of her projects. “Wala na kaming pinag-aawayan. Basta huwag lang siya makipag-kissing scene. Hindi naman siya ang aawayin ko e, kundi yung leading man niya. Huwag na yun. Ako na lang ang magki-kissing scene. Magseselos na ako nun.”

What does Mariel have to say about his double standard in that aspect of their relationship? “E kung kaya ipagtanggol ng ka-kissing scene niya yung sarili niya, e ‘di magkissing scene sila,” he answered with a laugh.

In the meantime, Robin was very happy to work with Vhong Navarro and Pokwang in ABS-CBN’s newest sitcom, Todomax. “Itong Todomax ay isa sa mga katapuran ng mga napagusapan namin ng ABS-CBN at makakasama ko si Vhong. Sa akin din naman nagumpisa si Vhong sa Pwedeng Pwede. Nabantayan ko ang kanyang pagsikat at sana parte pa ako ng pagmayani ng kanyang kasikatan. Si Pokwang naman, e asawa ko yun eh. Alam mo naman, sa Wowowee noon isa siya sa mga nagalaga sa atin.

Aside from the comeback of sitcoms on ABS-CBN, Robin shared that their show’s main objective is to promote good values among Kapamilya viewers. “Si Vhong at si Ms. Pokwang ang bahala sa comedy, tayo na lang sa action. Pero siyempre ang importante dito yung values na gusto naming ipaalam muli sa ating mga kababayan. May mga anak ako dito eh. Makikita din sa storya kung gaano kahirap at kasarap ang magpalaki ng mga bata sa Manila.”
