Mariel Rodriguez should advise her husband of two years, Robin Padilla, to lessen his work unless he really wants to get sick.

According to his friend, TV and movie director Joyce Bernal, “bumibigay na ang katawan ni Binoe (pet name of Robin), dahil sa sobrang trabaho.”

Direk Joyce is at the helm of Robin’s upcoming series, “Kailangan Kita” (KK), which also stars Kris Aquino and Anne Curtis. They were supposed to tape for the series last Friday, Direk Joyce told us at the Liberal Party headquarters last Friday, where she witnessed the oath taking of Aga Muhlach as a Liberal Party member.

Robin begged off from work that day as he was not feeling well.

“Kung sabagay, ‘di ako nakadalo sa oath-taking ni Aga, kung natuloy ang taping naming,” said Direk Joyce.

Speaking of Aga’s oath-taking as Liberal Party member, guess who was at the LP headquarters in Cubao with Aga, aside from his wife, Charlene, friends, partymates and leaders?

His 23-year-old son Luigi (mother: Janice de Belen).

Luigi said he has been helping his father from day one. Like his half-siblings, Atasha and Andres, he has joined him on several trips to CamSur.

He says that the Bicolanos’ reception to his dad has been very warm.

“Malaking trabaho ang naghihintay sa dad ko,” said Luigi. “But knowing him, he will succeed. At lalo na kapag tinulungan siya ng kanyang mga constituents. And I know they will.”

Luigi, like Aga, is now a family man. He has been married to Patty for three years. They have two kids, a boy and a girl.

A Culinary Arts graduate, Luigi worked as chef in a hotel and two plush restaurants before venturing into the eatery business with the help of his dad.

Luigi owns and manages Luigi Comfort Food in BF Homes, Parañaque.


Ruffa Gutierrez, currently in London with daughters Lorin and Venice, reportedly is surprised with reports linking her to Derek Ramsay.

Our source – someone close to the actress – said that Ruffa will only entertain new suitors (take note, new suitors) starting this November.

Right now, of course, Derek is also in London covering the Olympics for TV5.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Derek’s ex, Angelica Panganiban, and John Lloyd Cruz are a good match. The two have yet to admit that they are a couple though.

Both are busy. Angelica is completing her Metro Manila Film Festival movie, tentatively entitled “One More Try,” co-starring her for the first time with Dingdong Dantes, Zanjoe Marudo and Angel Locsin. It is being directed by Ruel Bayani.

Weekly, she appears in “Banana Split, Extra Scoop,” the gag show directed by Frasco Mortiz. Now on its fourth year, “Banana Split, Extra Scoop” also stars John Prats, Jason Gainza, Melai Cantiveros and Zanjoe Marudo.

John Lloyd, on the other hand, is doing a movie and a television series with Bea Alonzo.
