- Robin Padilla recently aired attacks on ABS-CBN and its artists amid its franchise renewal issue
- This can possibly affect Mariel’s good working relationship with ABS-CBN
With Robin Padilla’s continuous attacks on ABS-CBN, many speculated that his wife Mariel Rodriguez will not set her foot again on the set of the noontime show It’s Showtime where she has worked for more than four years now.
It seems that the TV host is now caught in between her husband Robin and her employer ABS-CBN. The rift can also greatly affect her work relationship with the broadcast giant.

P*kyu, Robin Padilla. Isa kang huwad na makabayan. Tanggalin sana si Mariel sa It's Showtime, animal ka.
*Insert tawang mukhang tanga ni Mariel*

Si Robin Padilla walang delicadeza. Sana man lang nahiya kahit konti sa ABS CBN at hindi na nagbigay ng kahit anong comment bilang doon nagtatrabaho si Mariel Rodriguez at iba pang miyembro ng pamilya niya. Napaka ingrato.

The actor started receiving criticisms online after posting a statement allegedly aimed at ABS-CBN.
He wrote, “No man is above the law and no man is below it. Mayaman o mahirap may kapangyarihan o wala, sikat man o hindi, ang lahat dapat ay pantay-pantay sa harap ng batas dahil ang hustisya ay walang tinitingnan o tinititigan, ang mali ay mali at ang tama ay tama, walang maybe o exempted, ang lahat ay mananagot kapag lumabag sa batas.”
ABS-CBN executive Ethel Espiritu responded to Robin’s attacks with the quote “think before you click” and reminded him that his relatives are working at the network, including his brother Rommel Padilla, nephew Daniel Padilla, son-in-law Aljur Abrenica, and wife Mariel. She also questioned why he didn’t call their attention to issues in the first place if there was something wrong with the network.
With Robin’s attacks on ABS-CBN and support of President Rodrigo Duterte’s view on its franchise renewal, the actor, who reportedly has a pending show, might never show up on the Kapamilya Network again.
