In an ambush interview by the media, Robin said he still (chooses) calls his brother Rustom and not his new name BB Gandanghari.
Although the action star admitted that he has not talked to Rustom/BB since the former started wearing women’s clothing, he pointed out that he does not agree with what he does to himself or what he chooses to be.
Last Saturday, Rustom Padilla/BB Gandanghari was interviewed by Robin’s wife, Mariel Rodriguez, on TV5′s weekly showbiz talk show “Paparazzi.”
In the said interview, Robin’s younger brother said turning into a transvestite is one of the best decisions he has ever made.
“Whatever you’re seeing now, is the manifestation of how I really feel deep inside. I’ve made decisions in my life and I guess, [they’re] the best decisions I’ve ever made. It made me surer. It made me happier. It made me more peaceful,” BB said. “I have nothing against change… I’ve embraced my change. I’ve embraced everything and happy ako,” he added.
He, however, did not confirm nor deny the rumor that he had undergone sex change.
“But I hope you will forgive me if I don’t talk more about it because whatever’s between my legs is basically my own private thing. And hopefully, my partner’s,” he said.
