The controversial interview between Zoren Legaspi and BB Gandanghari last Saturday in Paparazzi Showbiz Exposed didn't push through. Instead of Zoren, Mariel Rodriguez who is a guest host that day conducted the interview.
According to a Paparazzi insider, BB promised when she returns to the country, she wanted to be interviewed by Mariel (Robin Padilla's wife) her "newfound sister in law".
When Mariel asked BB:
"Very nervous kasi siyempre ang tagal ko ng di nai-interview you know…but never been sure of myself, never been this certain," BB said
When she left the country, she decided to live in New York and all she want to have a career in the modeling industry.
"Nang unang dumating ako doon I really wanted to be a model but then I realized that I'm not fit to be a model," realization daw niya. Ibang klase rin daw ang na-experience ni BB na taliwas sa kinasayan niya noon dito bilang isang artista.
"Simpleng buhay, I do the subway, nag-apply ako ng iba't–ibang work doon. Saka sa Amerika naglalaba ka, eto pala ang buhay…
"Kung hindi ka gagalaw walang gagalaw para sa 'yo and I have a dog I was the one taking care of my dog."
"It took a while… 2010 dumating ako sa New York and since then I started working out , 6 miles in the morning 6 miles at night. I do yoga tapos dumating ang time nag-ahensiya ako."
Her experiences living alone in New York:
"Napakadami… 'yung buhay sa Amerika na mag-isa ka lang, ikaw ang namamalengke…hindi talaga ganun kadali.
"Doon mo mare mare-realize na no man is an island… I try to relate to people more…at pagdating sa trabaho kailangan seryosohin mo. Dahil andun pa rin ‘yung discrimination. Sa Amerika it's considered basically genderless fashion. Lalaki pero kinukuha sila as female model, androgynous model.
"But that doesn't mean na wala ng discrimination. We are considered the new black hindi porke't nakapasok 'yung isa, tatanggapin na lahat. Kung ang isang babae kailangang i-prove ang sarili nila, kami pa kaya?!"
About the rumored "sex change":
"Alam mo ako… whatever you're seeing now is a manifestation of how I feel now. I made sure it made me happier, it made me peaceful. I hope you'll forgive me because if I don't elaborate because whatever is between my legs is for me,"
Her opinion about sex change:
"I have nothing against change. If it'll make them happy. Ang sinasabi ko nga I've embraced my change, I've changed everything."
Ready to face Carmina?
"I'm ready to face anyone kasi wala naman…parang gusto kong sabihin ke Carmina na, 'Don't flatter yourself.'"
"Loko lang ho… bakit di natin tanungin si Zoren… pero baka makita nga niya sa akin, Ha! Ha! Ha!"
About her mom, on welcoming her:
"Honestly.. no comment. I don't want to comment because I don't want to say anything na pwede pagsimulan pa ng sama ng loob. No comment."
Her message on people who didn't understand her at all:
"Sa mga taong hindi ako naiintindihan, I have long accepted that. I'm a very polarizing person, you can accept me. Dun sa mga hindi makatanggap sa akin, I accept it. But every person is unique. I feel unique as you are unique. So let's respect our uniqueness, let's avoid hate."
