MANILA – Although they have already patched things up, television host Kris Aquino still feels uncomfortable when people tease her with former husband, basketball star James Yap.
Returning to “The Buzz” on Sunday, Aquino admitted that she feels uneasy when people say they are hoping the former couple would still reconcile.
“I feel so uncomfortable every time they post about James Yap and me saying na sana magkabalikan. Even today Boy, Mother Lily called me and said, ‘Kris, hindi tuloy 'yung Derek (Ramsay movie). 'Di ba hindi ka pinayagan? Kayo na lang ni James ang mag-movie,’” she revealed, referring to Regal Films matriarch Lily Monteverde.
Aquino said she politely rejected Monteverde’s offer.
“We are all happy. You know honestly, kung ang anak namin si Bimby, tanggap 'yung girlfriend ni James -- tinatawag niya si James and 'yung girlfriend ni James na ‘Hey the love birds’ --- let’s all be happy and let’s all move on. 'Yun lang 'yun,” she said.
Aquino stressed that she and Yap are now happy with their respective lives and it would be better if they just leave it at that.
“We are at a good place. He’s happy and I am happy and the most important thing is Bimb is happy,” she said.
Aquino, however, was not able to escape a prying question from co-host Toni Gonzaga, who put her on the spot and asked her on who makes her happy.
“Sinabi ko rin kagabi na bumabalik ako dito na mas matalino, mas marami nang natutunan, mas mature na so kung sino man ang nagpapaligaya sa akin, itatago ko na lang siya sa loob ng puso ko,” Aquino replied.
Aquino was last linked to Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, although their relationship was only short-lived.
She also confirmed early this month that she is entertaining a new suitor, with the initials “AG,” which some netizens believe is Bataan Governor Abet Garcia.
