MANILA, Philippines -- Her youngest son James "Bimby" Yap Jr. may have given his approval for her to date but host-actress Kris Aquino said she is not going out with anyone.
In the press conference for the fourth season of "Pilipinas Got Talent" on Wednesday, Aquino also declined to talk about JP Anglo or Chef Jayps on "MasterChef Pinoy Edition," who is currently being teased to her.
"Ano ba? Ang bait niya (Chef Jayps) talaga, thoughtful siyang tao. Ayaw ko ding mag-name ng tao dahil honestly when I name anybody I get a barrage of kanegahan about that person. Siyempre I'm the only one who gets to read it and feeling ko ang daming kontra sa kaligayahan ko whoever it is. Parang feeling ko deadma na ako," she said, when pressed about Anglo.
"I'm not gonna tell any of you. Ang concern ko talaga ay ang makasundo ko siya at makasundo siya ni Bimb at later on ay makasundo siya ng mga kapatid ko. Kung ano ang opinion niyo doon deadma na," she said.
Another man being linked to Aquino is director Lino Cayetano.
"Alam mo si Direk Lino, nabiktima din ng madaming tweets kaya huwag na please. Kawawa naman siya. Tumatakbo siya. He doesn't deserve that," the "Pilipinas Got Talent" judge added.
Instead, Aquino said she will be celebrating her birthday, which also coincides with Valentine's Day, in a new resort in Siargao with her two sons, as well as close friends such as singer Zsa Zsa Padilla.
"Na-excite ako kasi mayroon daw activities like eco-trekking sa mga mangroves na maglalakad ka... Tapos may cooking class at doon ako pinaka-excited kasi 'yung French-German na chef nila ang magtuturo," she said.
Last week, the actress admitted to getting the birthday blues. On her official Twitter account, Aquino said she remembered her "past stupidity" as she signed a "check in the millions" as part of a financial settlement.
In Wednesday's interview, Aquino reiterated that she and former husband James Yap are still not in good terms.
"And I don't think we will ever be okay. And I don't want to talk about him kasi ako na naman ang nega," she said.
Asked if she still thinks of love every time she marks her birthday, Aquino replied: "Feeling ko sobrang love ang ibinibigay sa akin ng mga anak ko at pamilya ko. If it (a boyfriend) will come, it's a bonus na from God. Pero kung hindi siya darating, okay lang din."
