Mariel Rodriguez is back!
ABS-CBN News’ Jeff Fernando reported on this morning’s (May 17) episode of “Umagang Kay Ganda” that the actress is ready to jump back into showbiz after taking a break back in 2016 to focus on her pregnancy and later on to her baby girl with husband Robin Padilla, Maria Isabella.
“I’m hoping, sana by next month, I hope to be back,” she said.
“Definitely, it will still be ‘[It’s] Showtime,” she continued, adding that she hopes to be considered to host the upcoming season of “Pinoy Big Brother.”
Mariel recently lost a lot of weight, 40 pounds in fact, in preparation for her comeback and still aims to lose 15 more.

“I wouldn’t have been able to do ‘yung ginawa ko kung hindi ako sinuportahan ni Robin,” she revealed. “Kasi even during the time that I was super fat, not once did he complain. Not once na pinaramdam niya sa ‘kin na pangit ako. He was so proud of me - that really mattered the most.”
We can’t wait for your return, Mariel!
