Career

His team up with Angelu de Leon in the mid and late 1990s made him very popular. Their TV shows gained sky-high ratings and their movies were blockbuster hits. His popularity almost came to a halt when in 1998, at the peak of his and de Leon's popularity, Angelu admitted that she was pregnant with Joko Diaz's child. Despite this, Bobby had the full support of his mother company Viva and managed to get TV and movie roles as a solo actor. After breaking away from Viva in 2002, he shifted from matinee idol roles to offbeat roles in several ABS-CBN and GMA Network shows.
