BB Gandanghari turns 48; Robin absent in bash
MANILA – Actor Robin Padilla couldn't make it to the birthday party of his elder sibling, BB Gandanghari, who turned 48 on Wednesday with his family and close friends.
Padilla is currently in the Netherlands filming the Metro Manila Film Festival entry “10,000 Hours.”
Although Padilla was absent at the birthday bash, his wife, television host Mariel Rodriguez, was present at the party and even shared photos in the image-sharing site Instagram.
In one of the photos she posted, Rodriguez said: “Your NFF are all amazing and they love you because you deserve all the love. Happy happy birthday @gandangharibb!!! @robinhoodpadilla is sorry he couldnt come enjoy the rest of your night.”
Rodriguez also shared two other pictures where she is seen hugging Gandanghari.
Although he is abroad, Padilla was kept in the loop as he “liked” all of Rodriguez’s posts of Gandanghari’s party.
“Maraming salamat at masaya ako @marieltpadilla,” he said in a comment. “I am very happy.”
Padilla and Gandanghari patched things up just last July after years of being estranged when Gandanghari announced on national TV that he is gay.
Padilla even went out of his way to watch Gandanghari’s recent show during the Ramadan.
