Tom Rodriguez sinagot na ilang katanungan tungkol sa kanilang hiwalayan ni Carla

Published

Sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon, nagsalita na si Tom Rodriguez upang sagutin ang ilang katanungan tungkol sa kontrobersiyal na hiwalayan nila ng kaniyang dating misis na si Carla Abellana.

Kay Ogie Diaz nagpaunlak ng panayam ang Kapuso actor na kasalukuyang nasa Las Vegas, Nevada ngayon; ilang buwan simula nang pumutok ang balitang may matinding pinagdaraanan ang ex-couple.

Kabilang sa mga diretsang itinanong ni Ogie kay Tom ay tungkol sa kaniyang tunay na kasarian na ayon sa mga dating kumalat na balita ay siyang dahilan ng kanilang paghihiwalay ni Carla.

Ayon kay Ogie, sari-sari kasi ang lumabas na haka-haka noon kaya nais niyang malaman ang totoo; “May babae ba o may lalaki si Tom?”

“Bading ba si Tom?” diretsahang tanong ng talent manager.

“If that’s the worse that someone can call me. That’s not an insult to me. Most of the best people I know happen to be of that persuasion. Happen to be gay,” paliwanag ng aktor.

Iginiit din ni Tom na hindi siya nababahala kung marinig man ang mga balita tungkol sa isyung ito dahil wala naman umano itong katotohanan.

Muling humirit si Ogie na baka raw sabihin ng mga manonood na ‘paligoy-ligoy’ lamang ang aktor kaya sana ay ‘yes or no’ lang ang isagot.

“No,” ang maagap naman na turan ng dating mister ni Carla.

Tungkol naman sa tanong na kung mahal pa niya si Carla, ani Tom, “Of course. Hindi naman agad-agad mawawala yun. But like I said, it will transform into other things. Siguro the love may never disappear but it will change. It will develop, it will grow on its own way. Whether together, apart, it will grow on its own way.”

Inamin din ng aktor na nakagawa nga siya ng pagkakamali subalit kailan man umano ay hindi niya napagbuhatan ng kamay ang kaniyang dating misis.

“Tao lang ako. I have my mistakes, siguro hindi ‘yung mga binibintang sa’kin per se, but I have things that I have to be accountable for,” wika pa nito.
