Karel Marquez separates from non-showbiz husband

KAREL MARQUEZ cries as she confessed that she and her husband Armand Go have separated. “Akong umalis from our conjugal home two weeks ago,” she says. “Wala kaming communication since then. I got an apartment for me and our two kids. Pinadala na lang niya sa driver yung mga gamit namin.”

She was doing “Zaido” for GMA-7 in 2007 when she suddenly left. “Na-in love ako, e. We went to Australia and had a beach wedding. I got pregnant several months pa after the wedding.”

Why did they split? “There’s no third party involved. Talaga lang we realized we have different priorities.”

She’s only 24 and their two kids, Kielie and Kyler, are 2 and 1 year old. Didn’t they try saving their marriage by counselling? “Ayaw niya ng ganun, e.”

What’s her message to him? “I hope maging happy siya. At sana, ayusin niya ang mga problema niyang dapat ayusin kasi ako, aayusin ko rin ang buhay ko. I’m just thankful my parents are very supportive of me.” Her mom is singer-actress Pinky Marquez and her dad is a cosmetic surgeon with Beverly Hills 6750. She’s now managed by Annabelle Rama and is doing great as contravida to Alex Gonzaga in TV5’s “Babaeng Hampaslupa”. “I asked around kung sino dapat kong kuning manager and everyone suggested Tita Annabelle. I like her as she’s a fighter and I know pinagtatanggol niya ang talents niya so I trust her.”
