MANILA - Kris Aquino was a hot topic on social media Monday night as she revealed her new hairstyle during the live telecast of her primetime talk show.
Aquino, who is dubbed "Queen of All Media," showed up on the "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" set with a pixie haircut, which she said is the shortest her hair has ever been.
The 43-year-old TV host, who recently confirmed dating Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, hinted that the new look was because of a "heartache."
Recent reports saying Bautista is supposedly still with his long-time partner, Tates Gana, were not lost on viewers of "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" who took to Twitter to air their reactions.
While some commented on the apparent new development in Aquino's love life, others poured praises for the actress' "fresh" hairstyle. Others were not as impressed, however, saying longer hair suits Aquino better.
Some compared Aquino to other female personalities who sport a similar hairstyle -- from local news personalities to big-name Hollywood stars.
