Will Kris Aquino fall in love and tie the knot ahead of soon-to-be ex-husband James Yap?
No, says James as he assured that there’s no new woman in his life, according to showbiz authority Ethel Ramos, adding neither is he in a hurry to fall in love again.
James claims that he will take his time as he would rather devote his time to James Jr., his son with Kris.
But what about Kris who is being linked to Makati City Mayor Junjun Binay, broadcaster Ted Failon and actor Deither Ocampo? Well, she revealed she will start dating in September when she expects that by then, the legalities of the annulment of her marriage with James would have been resolved.
A big setback in the resolution of the annulment case is several millions of pesos and properties earned by the couple during the time of their marriage in the vicinity of P300 to P500 million. For a time, Kris and James had heated exchanges in public, including visitation rights of James to his son, but their relationship has improved, with Kris admitting that they are friends again.
Diether Ocampo, the latest to be linked to Kris, denies any romantic links with the presidential sister after reports came out that he gave her some expensive gifts. Diether is Kris’ leading man in the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry, “Dalaw.”
Kris herself has admitted having received three expensive Louis Vuitton bags from Ocampo at the start of the filming for “Dalaw” but pointed out there was no courting involved.
Diether, who Kris admitted on television is a regular textmate, disclosed that he is not in a hurry to have a new love after he called it quits with Rima Ostwani middle of last year. He stressed that he will concentrate on his career which is going good. He says he wants to make the most of it.
He maintained that he is still very much single and would like to keep it that way for the time being.
“Wala pa. Hindi muna siguro. Trabaho lang muna,” he added.
He will soon be added to the cast of the series, “Isabel,” which features Jessy Mendiola, said to be the spitting image of Kristine Hermosa, Diether’s ex-wife.
Is there a possibility that he will fall for Jessy, who is 18? Ethel Ramos asked.
“Naku, ha,” Diether laughs. “I hardly know her. Ilang araw pa lamang kami nagte-taping. Besides, I’m sticking to my promise to concentrate muna on my career and, of course, on my Kids Foundation.”
Showbiz columnist Mario Bautista has a scoop – former presidential stylist Liz Uy is now dating director Lino Cayetano, brother of Senators Allan Peter Cayetano and Juliana Pilar Cayetano.
The director, who was recently elected barangay chairman of Fort Bonifacio in Taguig City, was once linked to KC Concepcion and Bianca Gonzales.
President Aquino earlier dated Liz after Valenzuela City Councilor Shalani Soledad.
Now, the President is being linked to stock broker Len Lopez. It was gathered that the President even introduced Len to Cabinet members in one meeting in Malacanang.
The president has appealed to media not to pry into his love life anymore but it seems this can’t be helped since it is his own sister Kris Aquino who keeps on yakking about it.
Pnoy should stop requesting people not to meddle with his life as this can’t be avoided since he’s a hot public figure just like a movie star, said the columnist, adding that the public will always be interested in who’ll end up as First Lady as it will surely also affect his presidency.
