Rumors have circulated that presidential sister Kris Aquino is back in Joey Marquez’ arms. The issue started when Boo Chanco wrote, in the business section of The Philippine Star‘s Demand and Supply column, an article entitled “Is Kris back with Joey M?”
In the article, Chanco said that during a September 13 dinner with businessmen, the topic was Kris‘ personal life rather than the Philippines economic problems. Chanco however clarified that he doesn’t believe that Kris Aquino will be going back to Joey Marquez.
Ricky Lo on the other hand, shared in his FunFare column a text message by Kris Aquino that belied the rumors of a Kris and Joey Part II. Here is the text message of Kris Aquino to Ricky Lo:
“No, I haven’t seen him since the wedding of Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago (Almost three years ago, in Tagaytay Highlands. — RFL). Last week on Pilipinas Win Na Win (PWNW), I greeted Joey Manahan, a nephew of Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) who is a Hawaii State Representative. He was really nice to us when we went to Hawaii last year. He is up for reelection. I said, ‘Thank you, Joey, for being so good to me and my family and for taking good care of us. Good luck.’ That’s why the rumor started. Immediately after the show, people started asking me na.
“I just wonder why people are so quick to portray me as the malanding nakihiwalay and James as the mabait, naaping asawa? When all of last week ako ang nakabantay kay Bimby in Makati Med when he was confined from Wednesday to Saturday. Walang narinig ang tao from me na akong dakila and James didn’t even offer a peso for medical bills. (Portions deleted by me. — RFL) Kaya lang exhausted na ako with people wanting to just see the worst in me.”
