Actor Epy Quizon appealed to bashers to stop criticizing his father’s long-time partner, singer-actress Zsa Zsa Padilla, who is now engaged to architect Conrad Onglao.
Padilla was the partner of the late veteran comedian Dolphy, who died in 2012.
“Huwag na, tama na. Namatayan na nga ‘yung tao, pabayaan niyo na maging masaya. Pabayaan na lang nating maging masaya,” Quizon said.
“For the bashers, I know nasaktan siguro sila dahil para sa kanila it’s too soon and all that but for me, bakit kami hindi na kami nasasaktan. All I can do is wish her all the happiness and who am I to stop her from being happy,” he added.
The actor said as long as Padilla is happy, they are also happy.
Quizon revealed that he already met Onglao and that he knows the architect really loves Padilla.
“He is very well educated. Alam niya kung paano humarap sa tao, marunong humarap sa tao. And you know he loves Zsa Zsa,” Epy said.
“I don’t want to say my father is in the past but my father is in heaven and, of course, my father would have agreed also for her to be happy in this lifetime. Bakit naman namin ihi-hinder ‘yung happiness ng isang tao just because of personal reason,” he added.
Asked if he would be willing to attend the wedding of Padilla and Onglao, Quizon said: “Kung iimbitahan ako. Alam niyo naman ako, sa events na ganoon ‘di talaga ako pumupunta. Sa kasal, bihira. Pero siguro if ever.” (MNS)
