kris aquino, ‘wag tularan
i find i can’t ignore her ’cause she’s so in-our-face and i worry about the values our girls are picking up from her endlessly cheap dramatics.
so she’s back, and, boy! (abunda?), her media handlers certainly made sure she’d be talked about, as if taking over wowowee wasn’t big enough news, nah, they had to throw in rumors din that she’s preggy and that she’s being linked to chiz and junjun and robin atbp. all of which she happily giddily gleefully denied on nationwide tv, sabay amin na type niya si junjun. as for her marriage to james, well, she’s quite optimistic that it was void to begin with. destiny daw, lol, omg, wtf.
BOY: Based on the interview, I think with the lawyers, na may na-mention na maaaring mayroong posibilidad na your marriage was null and void to begin with. Ano ang iyong take?
KRIS: Probably because the premise kung paano siya nagsimula, na hindi ko inamin sa pamilya ko right away, part of destiny ‘yan. Kasi siguro kung kumpiyansa ako na it will really be okay and all, hindi na tayo nagtago sa bahay mo. [Laughs] Siguro regalo na ‘yan ng tadhana sa aming dalawa. I don’t know, Boy, I have to sit down with the lawyers. I have to see the papers. It has to go through the process in court. But kung totoo ‘yan at mayroon kaming mga requirements na hindi na-fullfill, at yung technicality nandoon at maru-rule nga ng korte na null and void to begin with, then maybe it’s really a lesson for me. That no matter how I tried to avoid it and no matter how much my family tried to accept James, if ever, Boy, in the future—and I’m saying malayong future ito, ha—sisiguraduhin kong I’ll do it correctly this time. Wala nang mga patagu-tago pa.
so because she and james were married secretly, and she kept the marriage secret for some time, the marriage is invalid? the spin being, she kept it secret because she must have lacked confidence that she was doing the right thing, so the marriage is void? ganoon? how old was she ba when she married james? sweet-16-never-been-kissed? ano namang drama yan. she was 34, with a string of scandalous love affairs behind her, and if she still didn’t know what she was doing, then yeah, she’s sick.
but hey, i’m not biting. it’s more likely, i’m told, that she kept the marriage secret muna out of concern for some multimillion-peso product endorsements she made while she was single that may have required her to remain single for the duration of the contract. she would have needed to break the news gently to her sponsors, which sounds more credible, di ba.
and now she wants another chance. with another man. never mind that james is wanting to work things out. pagod na daw. ayaw na niya. so there. brat pa rin. well. let’s see how that legal process goes. if she gets her way, so should all other pinays na walang pera pambayad sa abogado at sa korte but who want out of worse marriages, lalo na yung mga binubugbog at yung mga basta iniwanna lang. fair is fair.
and what about that promise to cory.
James: …nangako ako kay Mom Cory na hindi ko pababayaan ang pamilya namin. Na-aalagaan ko si Kris, si Josh at si Baby James. Nangako rin kami ni Kris sa harap ni Mom Cory na hindi kami maghihiwalay.
sagot ni kris, wag nang idamay si mom. ganoon? she’s dead anyway? so, were her fingers and arms and legs crossed when she made the promise? cory must be turning and tossing in her grave. ninoy must be shaking his head and making buntong-hininga. bishop soc must be desperate for divine guidance, what to do with this wayward witch, i mean, bitch, i mean, sheep. she with the sparkle in her eye. malinaw naman what the real problem is. in-love na naman siya and she’s so fecklessly recklessly messed up, she doesn’t even have the sense to keep THAT secret.
