‘Single blessedness’

LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON – Thought all along that Chanda Romero would never marry, just like the late Charito Solis who remained single throughout her life. But then love came in the afternoon and could only wish Chanda the best of everything. Her best friend, Ricky Lee, gave her away.

Chanda’s husband comes from a religious (Catholic) family.

She’s one of our most intelligent and articulate stars – photographer, poet, filmmaker, aside from being a very fine actress.


‘SINGLE BLESSEDNESS’ – A number of actresses and celebrities remained single – and happily so – after becoming widows or separated (annulled, divorced, or simply estranged).

Think of Rosa Rosal, Delia Razon, Gloria Romero, Gina Alajar, Pempe Rodrigo, Shirley Kuan, June Rufino, Leah Navarro, Lollie Mara, Luz Valdez, Marita Zobel, Maribel Lopez, Cherry Pie Picache, Coney Reyes, Pops Fernandez, Janice de Belen.

Will Zsa Zsa Padilla, Lorna Tolentino, Boots Anson Roa, Camille Prats – viudas all – give love another chance? Or will they continue to enjoy their “single blessedness”?


PIOLO PascualCONFIRMED BACHELORS – Among actors, confirmed bachelors are Eric Quizon, Rowell Santiago, Juan Rodrigo, Tommy Abuel, Ernie Garcia, Paolo Bediones, and Piolo Pascual.

Piolo has a love child though, Iñigo, now a teener.

Papa P’s romance with KC Concepcion went nowhere. He was also linked to Rica Peralejo and Shaina Magdayao, but then they were more “press release” than real.

Oh, another confirmed bachelor is Kuya Germs Moreno. He has a son, Federico, married to Shiela Magdayao and a very successful businessman.


GLORIA Diaz‘IKALAWANG GLORIA’ – After a failed marriage to Bong Daza, Gloria Diaz found happiness in the arms of Mike de Jesus. They’ve been together for decades – sans benefit of marriage. “Ikalawang gloria” they say.

Another one is Gloria Sevilla, twice widowed.

In the late ’60s, her husband Mat Ranillo II died in a plane crash. After a period of mourning, Glo remarried – to Amado Cortez, actor-politician-diplomat.

It was happy marriage, long and lasting. They lived for many years in San Francisco, California, where Amado as consul-general with the rank of ambassador.

After his stint with the Department of Foreign Affair, Amado went back to acting. He died some years back.
