BB doubts he will be invited to Carmina's wedding

MANILA, Philippines – Since he announced the "death" of Rustom Padilla, actor-model BB Gandanghari has yet to talk to his ex-wife, Carmina Villaroel.

Formerly known as a hunk actor, Gandanghari expressed doubts that he will be invited to the wedding of Villaroel with her partner of 14 years, actors-host Zoren Legaspi.

In August, Legaspi said he intends to finally marry Villaroel this year. The couple has been living together for over a decade, and now has two children.

"That would be very remote. And I don’t want to assume [that they will invite me]," Gandanghari told entertainment website PEP, when asked if he is willing to attend Villaroel's wedding.

"Pero sa akin naman, I see no problem," he added. "Carmina has a very soft spot in my heart. I only wish her happiness."

According to Gandanghari, he has not had the chance to talk with the Kapamilya actress since he announced his "transformation" in 2009.

"As of now, talagang hindi naman kami nakakapag-usap. Hindi rin naman kami close friend, but hindi rin naman kami magkaaway," he said.

"So, kung darating ang panahon na 'yun na tamang-tamang ikakasal sila, at kami ay meron nang relasyon bilang magkaibigan, bakit naman ako hihindi," he added.

Support for Carmina

The former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate also expressed his support for the formal union, pointing to Villaroel and Legaspi's decade-long relationship.

"They should be married. They’ve been living together as a couple for so many years," he said.

"And, I think, kung anuman ang nakakahadlang pa, e, please, Diyos ko, ibigay na po natin sa dalawang ito ang pagpapakasal," he added.

Although he has yet to re-open communication lines with Villaroel, Gandanghari has spoken with Legaspi through an interview aired in June.

In the taped interview, Gandanghari thanked the actor-host for loving and taking care of his former wife.

"Wala ka namang kinalaman kung ano man 'yung nangyari sa past ni Carmina at ni Rustom, at kung mayroon akong nararamdaman para sa'yo, hindi siguro sama ng loob o galit, kundi pasasalamat actually, na I can see that you're taking care of Carmina and I'm very happy," he said at the time.
