MANILA -- Despite earlier rumors of her supposed return to her former home network ABS-CBN, television host Mariel Rodriguez believes that co-hosting "Pinoy Big Brother" is no longer for her.

In an interview on Sunday, Rodriguez praised the hit reality show, which is currently airing its latest season with her former co-hosts Toni Gonzaga and Bianca Gonzaga.

"I think they are doing a good job there. Everyone is nasa tamang lugar. Siguro it's not for me anymore," said Rodriguez who was with husband Robin Padilla.

For his part, Padilla said he is not inclined to allow Rodriguez to work right now.

"Huwag muna ngayon, kapag nag-aral na ako. Marami pa akong gustong pag-aralan. Sa ngayon masaya pa kaming magkasama. Kami lang dalawa palaging magkasama. Kapag nagtrabaho siya at nagtrabaho ako, malungkot 'yon," Padilla explained.

Last year, rumors about Rodriguez's return to ABS-CBN gained momentum after Padilla posted a video of his wife putting on make-up with the caption: "Dumating na ang Araw na aking kinakatakutan... Ang araw nang patawag ng mga kapamilya sa ABS-CBN, direk Lauren D."

Padilla was obviously referring to ABS-CBN TV production head Laurenti Dyogi.

Rodriguez left the Kapamilya network in 2011 to join Willie Revillame’s primetime game show "Wiltime Bigtime," which eventually became the noontime show "Wowowillie." It ended its run late last year.
