MANILA - After reports linking her to Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista spread, the bachelor politician visited Kris Aquino on her show and had a playful moment with him.
On "KrisTV" Friday, Bautista teased Aquino about having two male politicians visiting her on the same day. Makati Mayor Jun-Jun Binay also dropped by the set.
"You have two mayors in one day?" Bautista told Aquino.
She replied: "We can make it three."
The actress-host was once romantically linked to Binay and has also been recently linked to Bataan Governor Abet Garcia.
Both Bautista and Garcia are not married, while Binay is a widower.
Last week, Aquino's former husband, basketball player James Yap reacted to rumors that his former wife is dating a politician.
Yap wished his ex-wife happiness.
"Sana masaya siya kung totoo man talaga. Ganoon lang naman talaga ang buhay, kailangang happy lang," said Yap, who is in a relationship with Italian Michela Cazzola, who works for the Asian Development Bank.
When asked if he approves of Aquino's alleged suitor, Yap said: "Ayaw ko nang makialam sa mga ganyang bagay."
When prodded further to confirm the rumor about Aquino and Bautista, Yap said: "Alam mo sa totoo lang, wala akong idea. Wala akong idea dahil wala naman siyang sinabi sa akin na pangalan. Pero sinabi niya lang sa akin na politician."
"Ako, hindi na ako nagugulat," he added. "Basta kung saan siya masaya, maganda 'yon at happy ang buhay niya."
Yap added that even if he knows who Aquino is dating, he would keep it to himself.
"Pero last Friday noong nagkita kami ng anak ko, siya mismo ang nagsabi sa akin kung sino. Tapos sabi niya, joke lang... Ayaw ko nang makialam, mamaya magalit pa sa akin si Kris," he said.
