Mariel Rodriguez speaks up about rumored dispute between Robin Padilla and Zanjoe Marudo


091111-mariel_main.jpgRumor has it that Robin Padilla almost had an altercation with Zanjoe Marudo, the ex-boyfriend of his wife Mariel Rodriguez and the current suitor of his Guns and Roses leading lady Bea Alonzo. Previous reports also mentioned that Robin went to the Star Magic ball at the Manila Peninsula Hotel last September 3, with the intention of confronting Zanjoe.

But when Cinema News and Push.com.ph caught up with Mariel Rodriguez at her dressing room at Happy Yipee Yehey! last September 8,  she denied that her husband, Robin, made a scene at the said event. “I don’t know if I should comment on that. But one thing is for sure, hindi si Robin sumugod sa Star Magic ball. Hindi siya at all sumugod. I know this has been resolved. I don’t know kung anong sinasabi ng both camps. Pero galing sa puso ko masasabi ko na walang kasalanan si Robin dito. Wala siyang intention na makipagaway whatsoever.”

Incidentally, Vhong Navarro impersonated Robin Padilla and asked Zanjoe to come up on stage during the program at the ball. Robin was allegedly offended when he heard about the skit involving his wife and decided to confront Zanjoe right after the ball. To which Mariel responded, “Kahit ako nung may nagsabi sa akin later na, ‘Uy… Si Robin daw sumugod...' It wasn’t like that. I was there with Robin, drinking coffee at the lobby. Grabe naman yung word na sumugod kasi when you say sugod it’s like you’re ready to break someone's head, parang suntukan na ito, hindi ganon.

“I know it’s not about the skit. The skit is fine. Hindi naman mababaw na tao si Robin. Ang tagal-tagal na niya sa industriya, ang dami-daming nag-spoof sa kanya. So kung maaapektuhan ka sa skit, dapat si Vhong din kasi kasama siya sa skit. Eh hindi naman ganon ang nangyari kasi hindi dahil sa skit.”

Mariel made it clear that Robin and Zanjoe were able to settle their issue a few days after the ball. She refused to disclose what it was about; but it seems that the whole thing somehow concerns Bea as well. “Yeah, they talked. Nag-usap sila dito [sa ABS-CBN compound] noong Tuesday (September 6). Sa totoo lang hindi ko na tinanong kung tungkol saan yung pinag-usapan nila. Kasi si Robin at that time, gusto niya if there's anything Zanjoe would like to tell Robin, Zanjoe should feel free to be able to tell Robin. Yun lang naman ang sa kanya. Ayoko kasi yung dating na sinugod ni Robin [si Zanjoe] kasi ganon ang lumalabas.”

When it comes down to it, Mariel stressed that what’s important is that Robin and Zanjoe have come to terms about the issue. “Siyempre alam ko kung ano yung [reason behind the whole thing] pero hayaan na lang natin kasi hindi naman ako ang [involved]. Basta ako, I feel hindi ako dapat nagko-comment dun dahil hindi naman talaga ako directly involved. Gusto ko lang sabihin na bilang asawa, hindi siya (Zanjoe) sinugod ng asawa ko. At the end of the day, it’s good to see na lahat okay na. Hindi na dapat palakihin pa yun. At saka yun naman ang the best in any problem or situation, mas maganda lagi yung magkaroon ng magandang pag-uusap, because then everything is resolved.”
