Controversial and suspended doctor Hayden Kho finally has admitted that he and Vicki Belo are on again.
Hayden made the revelation, expected by many earlier, at the popular ABS-CBN program “The Buzz” with host Boy Abunda only last October 31.
In the program, Boy Abunda asked Hayden point blank if he and beauty consultant were back together and Hayden had a quick and ready answer — “Yes.”
Anya Santos of Bulletin wrote about the interview, stating further that it was the first ever admission by Hayden of his reuniting with Vicki, herself a controversial aesthetic specialist.
Many people actually had written off their relationship since Hayden figured in sex video scandal with top actress like Katrina Halili and other girls. The scandal resulted in the suspension of Hayden’s license to practice medicine, his breakup with Vicki and attempt to take his own life. Hayden’s mother was also dragged into the scandal which triggered the Senate to investigate.
Katrina eventually filed criminal charges against Hayden and the case is still being heard by the court.
With his happy reunion with Vicki, Hayden is also slowly getting his life in order. He is now attending an MBA class, and has launched a new perfume business.
Hayden said he was happy with the turn of events, saying its a second chance for him.
“Before I doubted that, but now I do believe in second chances,” he said.
“I feel na mas malakas akong tao ngayon,” Kho said. “Sa dami ng mga dinaanan kong bagay, paghihirap sa mga challenges din personally… meron akong nawala sa buhay ko nung time na maganda ‘yung career ko, ang lakas ng kinikita ko, nandiyan lahat… parang star ako… Nakalimutan ko ‘yung Diyos… nakalimot ako sa Diyos.”
This is “the most important lesson” he’s learned, he said. “Pero more than that, I also think na nung time na kasi ako ‘yung tinitira ng lahat, na wala akong kakampi, wala akong masabing tama, nag-withdraw ako eh.”
With Hayden and Vicki back in each other’s arms, Quark Henares (Vicki’s son with former husband Atom Henares) commented: “If that’s what makes her happy, ‘yon, we’ll love and accept her. But not him.”
Hayden added: “I’m out to live my life for myself and the person I love. I’m not out to please other people. Kasi sinubukan ko na po ‘yan dati na ginagawa ko ‘yung mga bagay para sa ibang tao. It didn’t work out. Ngayon natutunan ko na kung meron akong gagawin, ito ‘yung bagay na gusto ko lang talaga gawin para sa sarili ko.”
“Sana lang, dasal ko na sana makita nila, in time, na mahal ko talaga si Vicki,” said Hayden.
On the scandal he triggered, Hayden said he could only wish the people he hurt could learn to forgive him.
“I do want to make amends with everyone,” he said. “Gusto kong ayusin lahat sa mga taong nagkamali ako pero hind na kasi ganun kadali eh. May mga bagay na nangryari na na parang wala nang pagkakataong maayos.”
