Public Reaction To Kris Aquino-Herbert Romance Is Generally Negative

KRIS AQUINO and Herbert Bautista are no longer wide-eyed teenagers who are plunging into their love affair with their blinders on. So they should be aware that the public reaction to Kris’ admission of their romance is generally negative. Even our question here in a previous column (Can’t we just be happy for them?) was met with derision. Someone said this is all right if they were both unattached, but Kris is hurting Herbert’s longtime companion, Tates Gana and their two kids, Athena and Harvey.

“In other words, may ibang mga tao siyang tinatapakan,” says Tina G., who claims she’s from UST. “Madasalin pa naman siyang tao, pero bakit pumapasok siya sa ganyang relasyon na may naaagrabiyado siya. Sana kung kamukha sila ni Boots Anson Roa and her groom (King Rodrigo), parehong mga walang sabit at all.”

Another letter writer said their union smacks of political expediency, saying Kris could be aiming to replace Herbert as QC mayor after the end of his last term. Honestly, though, we think this isn’t true. What will happen to Joy Belmonte, current vice mayor, who is next in line. The Belmontes are friends and supporters of the Aquinos. We are more inclined to agree with the speculations of other showbiz know-it-alls that the Kristek love team simply won’t last as the odds are against them. We’re sure they’ll both come to their senses before the next election rolls along and Kris will then be dangling another suitor or object of her checkered love life for the public to scrutinize and for her to be continually talked about.
