Carmina Villaroel talks about BB Gandanghari

EVEN IF SHE lost 'Sis', Carmina Villaroel thinks 2010 is still a lucky year as she just signed an exclusive contract with GMA-7. She's now seen as Reyna Lamara in "The Last Prince", Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays, she'll be in the new reality sitcom "Pepito Manaloto". She's also much in demand as an endorser that writers kid her she must be earning more than partner Zoren Legaspi who seems to be on package deal in the TV commercials she does. "Hindi naman," she says. "Kasi ako, I work in front of the camera while he works behind. May negosyo rin siyang build and sell. At wala ri kaming package deal. When the advertisers like to get a family, I'm really glad na kami talaga ang naiisip nila."

She's now more open talking about ex-husband Rustom Padilla aka as BB Gandanghari. "Last time we talked was before he came out pero mula ng maging BB siya, hindi pa kami magkaita ulti. Maybe when I see her as BB, I'll introduce myself as respect for his new identity kasi ang kilala ko, si Rustom, e dead na raw yun, di ba? Buti na lang di kami nagkaanak. Kundi, paano ko e-explain? Anak, dalawa na kaming nanay mo. I want BB to be happy kasi happy ako ngayon sa buhay ko. He deserves to be happy also."

BB says she wants to be paired with Zoren. What does she think? "No problem with me. Okay sa'kin. Ewan ko lang with Zoren. Siya magde-decide." After being together for 10 years, when will she and Zoren tie the knot? "It will come, but not now. We've talked about it but we want to be really ready for it and not just because people pressured us to do it."
