Two weeks ago, Funfare put out a “scoop” that Robin Padilla and Liezl Sicangco have been divorced for two years now and that Australia-based Liezl has remarried (not revealed if a Filipino or an Australian). The un-couple remains friends because they broke up with no third party involved on either side; it was amicable. In fact, they even took a vacation in Europe with their children only over a year ago. Long-distance relationships  oftentimes suffer cracks, don’t they?

When Funfare asked Robin about it, he only said, “It’s true,” but politely declined to elaborate. Up to now, he has kept mum about the subject, turning down print  or TV interviews. Action stars are men of few words, aren’t they?

As a Muslim, Robin is entitled to four wives but he stuck to Liezl through more than two decades during which they survived all sorts of trials (including rumors linking Robin to his leading ladies). Two of their daughters and their son stay with Liezl while the eldest, Queenie, 18, is in Manila living independently.

The question now is: How soon will Robin find his own new love?

For sure, since Robin Padilla is Robin Padilla, he won’t have a hard time finding one. (Okay, ladies, please fall in line!)

But the same DPA who tipped off Funfare about Robin and Liezl’s break-up said that what Robin prefers is “a simple girl, probably of the same religion” who can be his partner in his effort to help uplift their Muslim brothers in need. (Robin supports scholars, both Muslims and Christians, in his own school in Fairview, Quezon City.)

“That’s what he is doing during his travels abroad, recently to India and Iran,” added the DPA. “To look for a wife.”

He’s now showbiz’s Most Eligible Bachelor, the apt endorser of Trust Condom.

Robin said that he accepted the offer because of Trust’s “socio-economic relevance and value in promoting a better quality of life for Filipino families,” regardless of religion or race.

“We, especially us men, should be responsible in making decisions that affect not only us but our loved ones and other people,” said Robin who presumably practises what he preaches.

Trust, whose showbiz endorsers include sexy star Angela Velez (now married and living in the US), comes in different flavors.

Asked what his favorite is, Robin blushed.

“All of them.”

He was tongue-tied, though, when asked if he has tried “all of them.”

  1. You know, I have to tell you, I really enjoy this blog and the insight from everyone who participates. I find it to be refreshing and very informative. I wish there were more blogs like it. Anyway, I felt it was about time I posted, I�ve spent most of my time here just lurking and reading, but today for some reason I just felt compelled to say this.
