SINGER Zsa Zsa Padilla said she and longtime partner Dolphy are not in a hurry to tie the knot, now that the actress’ first marriage has been annulled.
“Pinagdadasal pa kung anong susunod na hakbang… Sa kondisyon niya ngayon, di ba? Parang ang dami-dami naming dapat ayusin,” Padilla, 46, said of the 82-yar-old King of Comedy.
“Sana respetuhin nila kung anuman ang magiging decision namin,” she added.
She also professed her undying support for Dolphy whether or not they will get married or not.
“Kung saan man dumating ang pagsasama natin, alam mo naman na forever akong nandito para sa iyo Nirerespeto ko ang kasal, pero kung sakali man hindi tayo umabot doon, asahan mo nandito ako para sa iyo,” she added.
Padilla was only 16 years old when she married dentist Modesto Tatlonghari, who was 35 at that time.
In 1987, they separated after 6 years of marriage. They have a daughter, singer-actress Karylle. Padilla began her relationship with Dolphy in 1989.

*** Aljur glad to finally meet Ai-Ai
KAPUSO actor Aljur Abrenica recalled his first meeting with Comedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas.
For weeks now, the comedienne is very frank in saying that the GMA talent is one of his biggest crushes in showbizness for his screen appeal and personality.
Though many tried to put color on the said admiration, the two finally met last week in one entertainment event.
According to Aljur, it was a fun meeting her and he was touched by how accommodating and warm Ai-Ai was.
“Nagkita na kami, then nag-usap kami. Ang bait-bait po niya. Very warm ‘yung pag-welcome niya sa akin and nakakatuwa siya. Kung paano siya sa TV, eh mas nakakatuwa siya in person,” he said.
“Na-starstruck din ako sa kanya and na-touch ako sa pag welcome niya sa akin. Nirerespeto ko po talaga siya Ms. Ai-Ai bilang mas nakakatanda po siya,” he added.
Ai-Ai was also very happy that she personally met the actor. She said she did not expect Aljur to be very friendly in person.
She said that during their meeting, she was a bit surprised when Aljur whispered something to her.
“Masaya. Actually natulala ako and nagblush ako kasi binulungan niya ako. Hindi ko alam kasi na bubulungan niya ako kaya sobrang nagulat ako,” she said.
Ai-Ai then clarified that this meeting does not mean that anything romantic is going on between them. It was just a friendly talk.
“Wala naman sigurong babae na hindi magkaka-crush kay Aljur kasi ang gwapo-gwapo ng bagets. Pero katulad nga ng sabi ko, eh hindi kami bagay in terms of edad, and alam naman natin na may girlfriend siya or constant date,” she said.
“Gusto ko siyang maka-dinner and maka-usap. Ngayon, medyo close na kami ni Aljur,” she added.
The “Machete” actor is reportedly dating Kylie Padilla, daughter of action star and “Guns and Roses” lead actor Robin Padilla.
*** Carla going strong with Geoff
KAPUSO actress Carla Abellana believes that working with boyfriend Geoff Eigenmann helps their relationship become stronger. The two are working opposite each other in the Kapuso comedy-fantaserye “Magic Palayok.”
According to the actress, many told her that starring opposite a partner in one television or movie project usually generates more fights and misunderstanding in the relationship.
But Carla said that it actually helped them get to know each other more and the work and their closeness does not suffocate them.
“Hindi naman ganun. I-guess kasi sa araw naman na hindi kami magkasama eh kasi hinahanap ko parin naman siya eh.”
“I-agree na in every relationship din eh dapat may space din and may time apart, but we are okay.”
Aside from “Magic Palayok”, the actress is set to topbill upcoming Regal Films production “My Neighbor’s Wife” opposite Dennis Trillo and Jake Cuenca.
Carla said this is something new to her because the character she’s set to portray is more daring and mature than her usual roles in television.
“It’s pretty mature, hindi siya pangbata and by challenging, I mean eh it’s for adults talaga,” she said but immediately added that whatever is needed in the movie, she will definitely deliver.
“Pagkailangan sa pelikula eh gagawin pero hindi ko alam kung paano ako magpe-prepare for such scenes. Pero kung ano naman yung dapat gawin eh gagawin ko para sa pelikula.”
