[VIDEO]: Robin Padilla opens up about his past, his present and his hope for the future.
Toni’s Hosting Went Past Robin’s Bad Boy Image
He was jailed because of illegal possession of fire arms. Went to the mountains to become NPA. But his ex-wife challenged him. She told him that people will remember that he’s evading the law. However, Toni-Gonzaga’s hosting focuses on the changed man.
Mother Lily’s Break
Robin Padilla was a natural stunt man since childhood. Most shocking rules also went to him. But Mother Lily Monteverde saw his potential. Gave him workshops for leading man rules in dramas. But his experience in jail allowed him to see things in a different light. Toni’s hosting then led him to Islam. He realized that Muslims are not NPAs. Robin embraced the religion and pushes for Federalism under the BBM-Sara Uniteam.
The Lover Boy
It’s easy to fall in love in showbiz but it’s also quick to lose it. Robin went into depression when he was divorced by his ex-wife. He was saved by his dog’s suicide. Because he was on the verge of doing it. Now, he is keen on his love for the country. Cory Aquino’s 1987 constitution and her reign didn’t give a good life to Filipinos. So, he’s confident that his Uniteam now will push it forward. No “chop suey” leadership can work, he stressed.
