Zsa Zsa Padilla turns emotional over Dolphy's health condition

MANILA, Philippines - Singer Zsa Zsa Padilla shed tears when asked about her partner Dolphy's health condition.

"Sa gitna ng saya sa sa tagumpay ng 'Budoy' [ay] 'di mapigilang maluha ng gumaganap na ina ni Gerald (Anderson) sa serye na si Zsa Zsa Padilla. Apektado si Zsa Zsa sa kondisyon ni Comedy King Dolphy," the report said on "TV Patrol," Feb. 28.

"Hindi n'yo lang alam, on a personal level I'm not strong," Zsa Zsa quipped, on the verge of tears.

"Ayaw na niyang idetalye pa ang kondisyong medical ng partner. Pero kailangan niyang magpakatatag at maging lakas ni Pidol," the report added.

"I never show fear 'coz in my home nobody can panic. Parang, 'O sige mag-panic kayong lahat puwera lang ako.' 'Yun ang rule namin, eh, 'coz I have to think straight."

"Higit sa lahat kailangan niya ng tibay ng loob para sa mga anak nila ni Pidol," the report noted.

In a report posted on the same day on abs-cbnnews.com, Zsa Zsa admitted that the ace comedian is far from healthy.

"Siguro kahit paano you'd been hearing rumors, the past years have been very difficult with my family. Alam naman nila na si Dolphy, aside from being 83-years-old, he's not in the pink of health," Zsa Zsa was quoted to have said.

The singer was grateful for the considerations afforded to her by her "Budoy" co-stars.

"And a lot of times ay naging very considerate 'di lang ang mga co-stars ko kung hindi pati ang mga director at staff namin. Manggagaling ako sa ospital [and then] diretso ako sa set. Ganoon ang buhay ko. So, naramdaman ko ang alaga at pag-aalaga," the singer shared.

While the comedian is already home, "he's hanging in there."

"He's in good spirit and we do our best to take care of him," Zsa Zsa related.

She was made to comment on reports that her partner for more than two decades has been in and out of the hospital lately.

The singer said that this could not be avoided as "83 na siya."

"Kumbaga, kung dumating man ang panahon ay idi-discuss natin 'yon."

Zsa Zsa refused to dwell more about Dolphy's medical condition, as "I don't think I'm in the position to discuss that right now," she said.

"Maybe in another time if the whole family is ready. Kasi I don't want to be the only one to be saying things regarding his health."

Aware that there are people who think she's just after the comedian's money, Zsa Zsa felt the need to explain her side on this matter.

"Ang daming nagsabi na, 'O, tuloy na ang pangarap niya, talagang pera lang 'yan, blah blah,"' she said, admitting it was "masakit sa akin."

She explained that this was not the case really "because all my life I've been working and the few instances na hindi ako nagtrabaho, siguro nagbuntis lang ako tapos I went back to work."

This continuing mindset of some people hurt the singer.

"Kahit paano affected ako, aaminin ko, na iniisip sa akin ng tao 'yung ganoon. Sa tagal ng pagsasama namin ay nabibigyan pa rin ng malisya at sasabihing 'pera lang yan.' So I just wanted to prove that (it's wrong)."

To avoid further complications in their relationship, "we found it best na huwag na lang [magpasakal]."

The couple believed that there is no need for them to tie the knot as "kumbaga tayo pa din naman. Nothing has changed and I'm still here, I'm still supporting you 100% at ganoon pa din siya. Emotionally binibigay niya ang best niya [at] wala na akong mahihiling pa."
