Donita Rose Confirms Split With Husband
Ringo | On 28, Jul 2016
Former MTV Vj Donita Rose confirmed the rumors that she and her husband Eric Villarama decided to end their marriage.
Speaking on Mo Twister’s online podcast, Rose admitted that she and Villarama have been separated for two years. She declined to go into details but described the experience “painful” and “devastating.”
“I will say that there have been a lot of times I said, ‘Why me?’ I felt like I’ve done everything that I could,” said Donita. “Why does this still has to happen to me? The hardest part is when you have kids, in my case, my son.”
She added that what happened to her marriage paved way to a deeper relationship with God.
“But on thing that I take comfort in knowing is that sometimes God has to work through adversity. We don’t really learn a lot through the good times. It’s really through the trials and difficulties you really start seeking answers, really turning to God.”
Rose, 41, noted her failed marriage made her a better person.
Last year, in an interview, Rose noted that she and her husband tried to work things out.
“Lagi kaming nag-aaway and lagi kaming nagkakaroon ng miscommunication, specially with the distance between us. So minsan mas madaling bagsakan siya ng phone. Nag-build up yung galit namin sa isa’t isa hanggang sa I realized or we both realized that we’ve almost lost each other, and what for? At the end of the day, parang what do we want?” she said during that time.
Rose, in the interview with Mo Twister, confirmed that Villarama is with another woman now.
“I guess it made it official when the other day I found out that he came out with a photo with another woman. We did talk about the photo the other day and he apologized to me,” said Rose.
Rose and Villarama got married in California in 2003. They were blessed with a son they named Joshua Paul.
