If BB Gandanghari were to appear as a guest on his brother’s sitcom Toda Max, Robin Padilla wants him to appear as the old Rustom Padilla.
Robin hopes that Rustom, who has assumed the persona of BB Gandanghari, will stop cross-dressing or wearing clothes meant for women.
"Sana lumipas na 'yon, sana gumradweyt siya doon. Kapag grumadweyt siya doon ako ang unang yayakap. Siyempre kanya-kanyang estado 'yan. Sa akin ay sobra, sa kanya, e, hindi," said Robin.
This is what the younger Padilla told the media during the press conference for the first anniversary of Toda Max last night, November 7.
“Siguro kung ige-guest namin siya, siya si Rustom, hindi siya si BB,” said the action movie star.
He reasoned out, “Kasi, mayroon nang Vice Ganda ang ABS-CBN, huwag na nating dagdagan ng isa pa.
“Okay na siya doon sa Channel 5.
“Kapag nandito siya, siya si Rustom para wala rin kaming problema kay Vice Ganda.”
When reminded that this might not be possible because his older brother already declared that “Rustom is dead,” Robin smiled and stated, “He’s alive in my heart.”
BB Gandanghari is currently part of TV5's fantaserye Enchanted Garden.
NO RIFT WITH RICHARD GOMEZ. Meanwhile, during the press conference, Robin was also asked about his previous rift with fellow actor Richard Gomez.
It will be remembered that in the early ‘90s, the two TV and movie actors engaged in several fights, including an incident that happened during the Star Olympics and another supposedly because of Kris Aquino.
These are all in the past now, according to Robin.
“Okay na po kami ni Richard,” he emphasized.
“Kasi, tatakbo siyang senador yata. Ano ba ang tatakbuhin niya? Mayor?
“Palagay ko, kailangan namin ang isa’t isa.
“Sa panahon na ito, kalimutan muna namin kung ano ‘yong nakalipas.”
The former Walang Hanggan actor is planning to run for mayor in Ormoc City, where his wife Lucy Torres-Gomez currently serves as its representative in the Congress.

When asked if he would be willing to campaign for Richard in 2013 elections, the Toda Max actor replied, “Noong tumakbo po siyang senador [in 2007], ako po’y nangampanya para sa kanya.
“Lalo po ngayon, kung ako’y talagang kakailanganin niya, ang aking serbisyo, tutulungan ko po si Richard.”
