IS IT TRUE ABS-CBN has scrapped all plans to give Robin Padilla and wife Mariel Rodriguez their own show? First, it was announced they don’t have any film project for Robin after he rejected the one he started with Toni Gonzaga. Now, the sitcom he’s supposed to be with Mariel has also been shelved. They must have realized that the Robin-Mariel affair does not really produce the usual kilig moments that most showbiz love birds induce in the public but only instead generated some negative energy as people perceive they’ve been taken for a ride with Robin and Mariel supposedly having an Ibaloi wedding, a Christian wedding and also an alleged wedding at the Taj Mahal in India.

As we’ve said before, it’s a case of starting a marriage on the wrong foot. The last we heard, ABS is now preparing a show for Robin with Bea Alonzo as leading lady. This will leave Mariel out in the cold, as she doesn’t have a single show at all. And with all the conflicts she’s allegedly having with the likes of Toni, KC Concepcion, Luis Manzano and Anne Curtis, looks like it will take quite a while before she bounces back into circulation. Well, since she has thrown all caution into the wind and is happy now just being plain Mrs. Robin Padilla, who cares?
