He also sometimes posts birthday celebration of his friends. But there is no information about his wife or children.
Was Willie and Walter Mercado in a Relationship?
It is not a secret that Walter Mercado used to appear a bit feminine which made his viewers question his sexuality.
Because of Mercado’s ambiguous sexuality, people used to believe that Walter was gay. But as we can see in the documentary, Walter did not care about what anybody thinks about him. Walter always used to say, in his astrology program on TV, that he wants to look beautiful and attractive and he wants to bewitch the people
According to Willie, Walter used to have a pill called “I-don’t-care-pill”. As the homophobic society at that time used to doubt Walter’s sexuality and his closeness to Willie, many people tend to misunderstand the relationship between Walter and Willie.
Furthermore, as there is no information about Willie’s wife or family, even the viewers of the documentary film “Mucho Mucho Amor” also wonder that Willie and Walter were a couple but because of a very homophobic society especially in their time, they were not open about their relationship.
Willie explained in the documentary that he is close to Walter as a family but he had never laid a finger on him. Apparently, he has also started to take the i-don’t-care-pill of Mercado.
