Robin in dilemma

PNS — WE know Robin Padilla as tough not only in his movies and soap operas but in his own family affairs.

Last Sunday in the GMA 7 show, “Showbiz Central”, Robin was asked of his reaction to the report that her daughter Queenie is being romantically- linked to young actor-singer PJ Valerio.

“Kung seryoso si Queenie diyan, ipapakasal na namin sila.” We know that they profess Muslim beliefs which do not include courtship especially from non-Muslims.

PJ, a regular co-host of German ‘Kuya Germs’ Moreno in “Walang Tulugan” on GMA7 every Saturday and “Goals & Girls” or G&G Sundays on TV 5 is rumored to have been dating Queenie.

If indeed they are and Robin’s statements are to be followed, will there be a wedding event anytime soon in the Padilla clan?

PJ says he is serious in his intentions on Queenie and stresses that he is not doing anything bad as he too has high respects for the action star.

Robin has a point in protecting his daughter because he has to follow certain practices under their religion. But if the two are already on, he should also consider Queenie’s feelings.

It’s much more risky now that she just turned 18, when one wants to be more independent.

Robin knows little about PJ as he doesn’t even call him by name.

So with this, will the issue on religion hinder the chances of their relationship to go smoothly and long lasting?
