MANILA – “I want him to be the one.”
This is what Zsa Zsa Padilla declared on “The Buzz” Sunday when her good friend and host Kris Aquino asked if she sees herself spending the rest of her life with her boyfriend, renowned architect Conrad Onglao.
“Ayaw ko kasi talaga ng papalit-palit. Ayaw ko ng iba-iba. I like fighting for something that I really like and believe in. Feeling ko worth it siyang ipaglaban. Ang showbiz and non-showbiz people naman, ang nagiging problema lang oras kasi ang oras talaga ng artista, kakaiba,” the veteran singer said.
Although they have known each other only for three months, Padilla said she feels comfortable with Onglao.
In the same interview, Padilla admitted that she and Onglao became a couple just one week after they agreed to go on a blind date.
“Kasi naman kapag may edad ka na, alam mo na kung ano ang gusto mo. Pareho kami ng sinabi. We were so comfortable with each other. Para siyang old friend. I would have known him three months bukas pero parang ang tagal-tagal ko na siyang kakilala,” she explained.
While time has yet to test their relationship, Padilla is optimistic, saying her love for Onglao grows each day.
Despite this, Padilla said she still thinks of her former partner, the late Comedy King Dolphy.
“Actually, what I told him before was ‘Sana intindihin mo na it wasn’t a break up. Namatay ‘yung tao. I was still very much in love with him.’ It was so hard. Kapag namatay ang tao, parang he can do no wrong. And hindi mo naman maaalis kasi ang tagal ng pinagsamahan namin ni Dolphy. Parati ko siyang kinakausap,” she said.
At the end of the day, Padilla said she is just happy to have found someone who she considers her “rock star.”
