- Bryan Revilla, the son of Bong Revilla and Lani Mercado, disclosed how the indictment of his dad changed his life
- He said the normal things for other people are not normal for them anymore
- He still believes things will turn out in their favor
Bryan Revilla, the eldest son of former senator Bong Revilla, bravely confessed some rough changes in his life since his father got imprisoned.
KAMI learned that the former senator is detained in Camp Crame for four years now because of his alleged involvement in the controversial PDAF scam.
Bryan expressed that the indictment of Bong and the tough challenges that his family has to go through regarding that became factors as to why his whole life changed drastically.
He even recalled the normal and good things that their family used to do when the former senator was with them every day.
"I missed yung Sunday na magkakasama kami na hindi sa loob ng Crame kundi sa loob ng bahay. Going to dinner, as in buo yung family, that’s one luxury that I don’t have for four years,” he explained.
Because of his father’s imprisonment, Bryan bravely admitted that he gets deprived of the normal things that a normal and complete family would have and would do.
"I was deprived of that, yung magkakasama kami na kakain sa labas, manonood ng sine na magkakasama, bakasyon kayo na kasama ang buong pamilya,” he quipped.
"That’s something that I was deprived of, and it’s sad. Yung normal para sa ibang tao, for us it’s not normal. Iba yung normal namin,” he added.
The 31-year-old actor, however, said that they remain hopeful that things will go in their favor since they already became stronger as a family and their faith in God became even deeper.
"It’s been four years already. Yung process na yun, it was tough but you have to do what you have to do in order to survive, and that’s something that I’ve learned,” he said.
"I am just happy that with regards in those dark times, our family is stronger. Our faith’s stronger. Our relationship with God is stronger,” he added.
