People are asking who Liz Uy is while they frown on Shalani Soledad being linked to Willie Revillame

AFTER HE BROKE up with Shalani Soledad, Pres. Noynoy was linked to non-showbiz girl Barbie Palagos (who got scared after they were hounded by the press while having dinner together in a Greenbelt resto) and TV reporter Patrician Ann Roque (who denied it). Rumors now linking him to his stylist Liz Uy are more persistent. He’s trying his best to keep his love life private but he just cannot keep away the public from prying into his personal life. Even his sister Ballsy admits he and Liz are dating, although non-exclusively, and that Noy really prefers younger women.  There are even rumors of a wedding of Liz and Noy.

There’s now much interest in Liz, a fashion magazine editor who comes from a well to do Chinese family. She went steady with John Lloyd Cruz for more than two years and were also romantically involved with now Hongkong-based model Francis Ricafort (brother of LJ Moreno) and a Frenchman named Ben Wintle who was her constant date early this year. They were more or less of her age (28), unlike the 50-year old Noynoy who’s old enough to be her dad. It was Kris who recommended her to be Noy’s stylist during the campaign and she was even featured in the film “Noy” while working on the looks of the would-be president, supervising his clothes and grooming. She has plenty of showbiz friends, including Anne Curtis, Ruffa and Raymond Gutierrez, and appears in a shampoo TV commercial with Georgina Wilson, another friend. She has always kept a low profile and even during her romance with John Lloyd, she was never persuaded to talk about him and, later, their split up. She’s active in Twitter but she never answers any question pertaining the president.

As for Shalani, there’s now an attempt to romantically link her with Willie Revillame, who’s been married twice, first to Princess Punzalan then to Liz Almoro. Willie is making overtures to her in “Willing-Willie” which can be taken as a joke. But still, it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
