BB Gandanghari (born Rustom Cariño Padilla on 4 September 1967) is a Filipino transsexual actress and commercial model. She is the elder sibling to actor Robin Padilla and younger sibling to Royette and Rommel Padilla, both actors.
In January 2009, after returning from the United States, Padilla came out as a transsexual and changed her name to BB Gandanghari (sometimes spelled Bebe Gandanghari), claiming that the Rustom Padilla which the people used to know is already dead.
In an interview, Gandanghari stated the name is derived from the word Bb. (abbreviation of Binibining) Gandanghari, translated in English to Miss Beautiful King, and it's also a reference of her personal motto of "Be all that you can be".
