"My relationship with Meme [Meryll's nickname] was sointense. Kung good day kasi kami noon, sobrang good day. Kapag bad, talagangbad. Grabe! But that's life. You don't expect things to happen. You get to thepoint, wala ka na talagang magagawa. Ganoon na lang ang nangyari sa amin. Kayanaisip ko, mag-let go na lang. I had to," says Bernard Palanca about his past relationship with wife Meryll Soriano.



Bernard Palanca was hardly recognized during TV5's launch of"Shake Mo, TV Mo" campaign at C3 Events Place in Greenhills, San JuanCity last August 7. Kasi naman, lumabas ang kaguwapuhan ng aktor na mukhangmatagal nang naka-recover sa paghihiwalay nila ni Meryll Soriano, na siyang inang kanilang anak na si Elijah, who will be turning a year old weeks from now.

May regular exposure si Bernard sa TV5, ang Hush Hush, namapapanood sa primetime Wednesdays sa ilalim ng direksiyon nina Laurice Guillenat Jade Castro. Tamang-tama dahil kakapanood pa lang ng marami kay Bernard sa A Very Special Love, na isang blockbuster hit from StarCinema, starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo.

"I'm happier na," sabi ni Bernard nang kumustahinsiya ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal). "I left for awhile. Mgaisang taon din 'yon. Naisip ko, I have to reinvent myself while moving on, gotoff from my personal problems. I feel much better now. Ready and willing towork again."

Short-lived ang relationship nila ni Meryll. Pagkatapos namapabalitang nagpakasal sila, hindi pa naisisilang ang anak nilang si Elijah,naghiwalay na sila. How can Bernard describe the devastation?

"I was only devastated, upon realizing sayang,"malungkot na sabi ni Bernard. "Para bang naisip namin, pupuwede pa sanakung hindi kami nagmadali. Things like that lang. But, I didn't regret it.

"My relationship with Meme [Meryll's nickname] was sointense. Kung good day kasi kami noon, sobrang good day. Kapag bad, talagangbad. Grabe! But that's life. You don't expect things to happen. You get to thepoint, wala ka na talagang magagawa. Ganoon na lang ang nangyari sa amin. Kayanaisip ko, mag-let go na lang. I had to."

Pero maraming usap-usapan na lumabas tungkol sa dahilan ngpaghihiwalay nina Bernard at Meryll. Karamihan nito ay negatibo ang dating kayBernard.

"Marami namankasing nakakakilala sa akin sa showbiz, e," sabi ng aktor. "Sabi konga, ayusin ko na muna yung mga problema ko kesa intindihin ko yung sasabihinng ibang tao. Hindi naman nila ako maiintindihan kahit mag-explain pa ako.

"Maganda ang resulta ng ginawa kong pag-alis muna salimelight. For a year, nakapagpahinga ako, nakapag-isip. Anyone can sayanything about me, and I don't care. Not naman literally that I don't care, parang it won't bother me lang."

Alam ni Bernard kung saan siya nakatayo sa sitwasyong 'yon.Kaya siya na lang mag-isa ang umintindi sa bagay na 'yon at nagpatuloy sakanyang buhay.

"Karamihan kasi ng nangyari sa amin, sa relasyon naminni Meme, masyadong nang personal that I don't want to talk about it anymore.The other half naman is, para lang maintindihan n'yo, we're not getting alongfine anymore. We were fighting too much at that time. It was unhealthy,fighting about the smallest things," lahad ni Bernard.

ARRANGEMENT ON ELIJAH. Magsi-celebrate ng first year sa buhay niya sa mundong itoang anak nilang si Elijah on August 27, kaya nakatuon ang pansin nina Meryll atBernard sa gaganaping pagdiriwang para rito, na gaganapin sa Blue Leaf ng TheFort.

"Okay naman ang arrangement namin ni Meme with regardsto our kid," sabi ni Bernard. "If she's busy, I can always pick himup, spends time with me; even days, which I like. Anytime na gusto kong makitasi Elijah, I just call up Meryll, welcome ako palagi to visit them sahouse."

Balitang superspoiled si Elijah sa lolo nitong si Willie Revillame, ama ni Meryll.

"That's true, and I don't mind," sabi naman ni Bernard."I have to understand that it's his very first apo. Kaya lahat ng gusto ngbata, talagang ibinibigay niya. Of course, nasa amin na ni Meryll yun kungpaano aayusin ang ganoon bagay, pero I'm so happy that he's very fond ofElijah. Mahal na mahal niya ang apo niya, and that's more than enough for me."

"Wala pang chance. I can always go up to him and talkabout it, pero nirerespeto ko rin naman ang stand niya on whatever, tungkol saamin ni Meryll. The same way, nararamdaman ko na nirerespeto niya yung decisionnamin ni Meme tungkol sa nangyari," pagwawakas ni Bernard.
