Of all the Clan Aquino, Kris is my favourite. I find her refreshingly honest. With Kris, we know what we are up against! LOL She is an open book. She can’t help herself but to tell the truth to anyone who listens.
I think Kris Aquino is born on the wrong time in the wrong country. If she had been born and raised in the west, Kris would not be getting some of the more veciferous comments about her life and lovelife. But then again, if she had been a westerner, she probably would not have the popularity she enjoys and endures at equal measures over the years, since her father, Ninoy, was martyred, throughtout the presidency of her mother, Cory, and the present presidency of her brother, Noynoy.
Perhaps everything has a price to be paid. Despite the popularity and riches she has gained over the years, she is far from having the perfect life, happiness seems to have eluded our Krissy! She just couldn’t get it right with her men despite, if news is to be believed, having had quite a few. ;0
I supposed from the outset, everyone knew that the affair with a married man which gave her her first son, Josh, would always end in tears. He was much older and so much more experienced!
Her marriage with James Yap also ended in tears. He was much younger and at the pinnacle of his successful career as a basketball player, adored by the masses. Their relationship unravelled when girls and women were throwing themselves at him and he had allegedly not learnt to say NO.
The latest of her high profile romances was with Herbert Baustista, a former child actor turned politician. Kris in her inimitable way went overdrive to declare to the world and to Filipinos worldwide of her new found romance with Herbert Bautista. Many a pictures were taken of their getting together. The PR for the romance went ten to the dozen. News that Herbert was liked and accepted by her family, even sharing a photograph of a Aquino family dinner gathering, where Herbert Bautista was sitting in a pride of place at one end of a very long dinner table were posted online. Everyone who is into Kris Aquino was au fait of the romance.
I was actually happy for Kris with this turn of events, although I was forced to comment that in her Kris Aquino Global facebook timeline that it seemed weird that despite her new love, she seemed to be talking more of James Yap, how happy she was that they made up and might turn friends.
Now that the Herbert affair is over, I can’t help but think that Kris Aquino is not too bothered emotionally but rather feel rather silly in being too overtly “honest”. I really think that Kris is more in love with love or being in love with the idea of love rather than having real feelings with the supposed object of her affection, perhaps Herbert Bautista had a lucky scape. After all it takes a real man to be able to measure up with Kris Aquino.
I am sure Kris will get over the misery in a jiffy. I am pretty sure that the disappointment would have gone long before her new hair-style have grown longer!
Perhaps, Kris is destined for something higher. Of all the Aquinos, she could possibly make a half decent president. What do you think? Comments please.
We have to bear in mind that Kris Aquino is doing very well being the Media Monarch! It takes a lot of discipline, savvy and drive to reach where she is now!
