BB Gandanghari caught unaware of former wife’s wedding

Rustom Padilla, better known these days as the transsexual actress BB Gandanghari, has to ask for confirmation when media hounded him for a reaction Friday regarding former wife Carmina Villaroel’s recent wedding to long time partner Zoren Legaspi.

The transgender actor admitted being caught unaware of the wedding though he later congratulated the newly weds saying that it has long been overdue.

In 1994 Rustom married Carmina but they separated after a couple of years. Carmina and Zoren became a couple in 1998, but her marriage to Rustom was only annulled by the court early this year. Prior to the wedding Carmina and Zoren live together for 12 years and have two kids.

In 2006 Rustom revealed that he is a homosexual while he was a part of the ABS-CBN reality show “Pinoy Big Brother”. He turned into a transsexual and has since rechristened himself as BB Gandanghari.

BB said the wedding was a private family affair when asked by media why he was not invited to the ceremony, which took place at Fernbrook Gardens in Alabang, Muntinlupa.

Showbiz personalities who were seen at the wedding include Susan Roces, Kris Aquino, Grace Poe-Llamanzares, Eric Quizon, Boy Abunda and producer Lily Monteverde.
