Carmina Villaroel admitted on Buzz Ng Bayan that she was pretty tense during Kathryn Bernardo’s debut because of the presence of BB Gandanghari. “Yes. Oh my gosh! Na feel ko talaga yung mga mata nila nasa amin. Bawat ganito ko tinitignan. Kung magbabatian ba kami, anong mangyayari.” Both were present at the party because Carmina was Kathryn’s co-star in Got To Believe and BB is Kathryn’s ka-love team Daniel Padilla’s relative.
Since their separation and BB’s transformation, Carmina said she is actually nervous meeting him for the first time. She said that BB and the Padilla clan were only a few tables away from her and her family. “Basta kasama ko si Zoren, tsaka yung kambal kaya naupo na lang ako. Natetense talaga ako… Wala lang. Nakasmile lang ako to death. Kasi ‘pag ninenerbyos ako, naka-smile na lang ako.”
However, Carmina didn’t go out of her way to talk to BB. She says it’s probably not the right time as it would also take away the spotlight from the debutant. She also hopes that their first meeting would be private. “Kasi maliit lang ang mundo natin magkikita at magkikita talaga kami. Sana wala lang cameras,” Carmina stated.
“So for now, hi BB. Dito na lang muna kami sa TV,” the actress said, acknowledging that she would meet her ex-husband soon.
