Long-time couple actor Romnick Sarmenta and actor-producer Harlene Bautista have decided to split after 19 years of marriage.
The pair, who have 5 children together, asked for privacy through a statement released on PEP yesterday, October 5. Written by Harlene, it read, “With the greatest respect and mutual love, wanting nothing but happiness for each other, we have decided to part ways.”
We would like to appeal for privacy, for our children and for each other as well. Being public figures, we know that this will not go unnoticed—and we didn’t want speculations, rumors, and gossips to destroy the wonderful memories we share, the peace that we continue to have as best friends. “
She continued, “Neither he nor I wish to speak at length about the matter, seeing as to how we had been able to keep the fact for as long as we have.”
We request that our individual supporters, friends, and family refrain from making comments or issuing statements that may hurt or offend not only ourselves, but most importantly our beloved children.”
Harlene and Romnick were stars on the German Merono and Ike Lozada-hosted variety show “That’s Entertainment” back in the late 80’s to the mid-90’s. They were first married in 1990.
