BB Gandanghari explains all: "Actually, kambal ko si Rustom, pero lumabas ako 36 years after"
That’s a hell of a long time not to come out.
Rose Garcia of PEP reports that BB Gandanghari is now settling into her new life. (Note: We have decided to use feminine pronouns to refer to Gandanghari.)
Gandanghari reveals that even the members of her family have already accepted her identity.
In fact, Gandanghari’s brother, actor Robin Padilla, had joked in another PEP interview, "Feeling niya...transgender siya. Akala ko, ’Transformers’ ang sinasabi niya (She’s transgender. But I said I thought she said, ’Transformers.’"
Padilla had also quipped, "Bunsong kapatid [namin s’ya], bagong panganak pa (We consider her our youngest sibling, she’s newly born)."
Gandanghari, however, clarified, "Actually, kambal ko si Rustom, pero noong lumabas ako, 36 years after. Lumabas ako sa sinapupunan 36 years after (Actually, Rustom is my twin, but I came out 36 year after he did. I came out of the womb 36 years after)."
