Actors Romnick Sarmenta and Harlene Bautista felt it would be best to issue a statement announcing their separation.

Romnick and Harlene got married in 1999 via civial rites where a church wedding followed just the year after. Both are well-known actors, and rose to fame on a show called “That’s Entertainment.” They are also the people behind the Filipino Restaurant Salu located in Quezon City.

Harlene expressed,”Romnick and I have five beautiful children, whom we love and treasure very much – we have spent many years together as best friends and partners in everything that we have done.”

Although they did not state the reason of their separation, they said that they will always be great friends if not best of friends & requested privacy for their children.
