2010 Yearender Part 2b – Showbiz Breakups

Several couples went their separate ways. The biggest noise was made by the breakup of Kris Aquino and James Yap. In January, Kris had a tiff with one Mayen Austria who she suspected of having an affair with her cager husband after she read her text messages to him. Kris later slipped in the bathroom and had head concussions. After her brother won in the May election, she announced that she’s calling it quits with James and quickly filed an annulment case in court. There was a bitter exchange of words between them but as the year ends, Kris announced that they’re friends again and she even asked the help of James to shoot a scene for her filmfest entry, “Dalaw”.

Geneva Cruz and KC Montero also admitted they’ve broken up after six years of marriage, stressing that there’s no third party involved. Aiko Melendez got the official annulment of her second marriage, to Martin Jickaine, but says she’s not about to marry current BF Bulacan vice mayor Patrick Meneses.

Among sweethearts who split up, the one most talked about is that of Pres. Noynoy Aquino and Valenzuela councilor Shalani Soledad. For a while, they won’t talk about it, but Pres. Noy was later linked to his stylist, Liz Uy, who reportedly rejected him and he’s now dating other girls. Shalani joined showbiz as co-host of Willie Revillame in “Willing-Willie”.   Willie is now seriously courting Shalani.

Heart Evangelista broke up with politician BF Ian Dy, a vice mayor in Isabela. But Heart lost no time in finding a new love in Brazilian-Japanese model-actor Daniel Matsunaga, her co-star in the soap “Langit sa Piling Mo”.

Richard Gutierrez admits he has called it quits with his alleged “girlfriend sa dilim”, Jewel Mische, who later left GMA-7 and moved to ABS. Richard is now being linked to newcomer Solenn Heussaff.

Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu confessed they’ve broken up, even if they never admitted they were on, and Gerald was linked to Bea Alonzo. Their Kimerald fans went up in arms, sending death threats to Gerald that caused him to cry at the presscon of their movie, “Till My Heartaches End”, which subsequently didn’t do well at the box office even if it’s one of the finest films we’ve seen this year.

Another nebulous affair is that of Pia Guanio and Vic Sotto. They were rumored to have split up in October. Later reports said they called it quits as early as July. Now, the latest buzz is that they’ve reconciled but they still refuse to talk about it, saying they’ve agreed they will seal their lips forever when it comes to their private life.

Another reported split up is that of Rufa Mae Quinto from her mysterious politician boyfriend called Mr. M. When the year started, she said they’ll soon tie the knot after the BF bought her a house in California. The latest story is that they’ve broken up and she has already the house meant to be their love nest in the U.S.

Sexpot Alicia Mayer also had a bitter falling out with Mayor Jonjon Villanueva , the father of her two-year old love child who she refused to name when they were on but who she now accuses of battering her. When cops came to her house wanting to get her cars, she no longer had qualms of naming him and even accused her former lover of trying to get back the cars he gave to her that, she admits, were not registered in her name.
