I don’t know but perhaps, it is only in the Philippine showbiz that any handsome and hunk male celebrity or showbiz stars is overtly suspected to be a closet gay. But of course, the accused party is in total denial and show proofs that he is a real man, to cast away doubts and rumors that he might be a gay because this could ruin his precious career and matinee idol image.
However, some matinee idols give in to the rumors and bravely admit that the rumors about him being a gay guy are true. The most recent who do this brave revelation is the former cute hunk matinee idol Rustom Padilla who have shock the entire Philippine showbiz industry when his beautiful big hunky body shrunk into very skinny body complexion when he was interviewed abroad by a showbiz porter of what is now happening to him abroad after his break-up with his former wife Ms. Carmina Villaroel.
Many thought, he has caught a disease abroad because of his so very skinny body and was greatly devastated by his break-up with Carmina Villaroel. But there are still lingering rumor that he might be a gay. Actually, both the camps of Rustom Padilla and Carmina Villaroel were interviewed then about if Rustom is gay or not, but both parties never answer straight, until Rustom himself break the mystery when he confessed through the TV program Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition that he is indeed gay and justified his being gay when he said “..hindi ako masamang tao…” (“..i am not an evil person…”,because the Christian church have demonized that gays are inherently evil and sinful creatures. But that doesn’t end the shock of the Philippine showbiz industry on him. He shocks more the Philippine showbiz industry when he finally cross-dress and said he is a woman and ever since he already knew that he is a woman. Moreover, he also personally declared that Rustom Padilla is now dead, he is now Bebe (Bb) Gandanghari – the woman and the real her who is hiding in the body and personage of Rustom Padilla. Recently, it was reported that he is planning or fly abroad for a sex change procedure.
