MANILA – If Kris Aquino were Angel Locsin’s character on “The Legal Wife,” she would not think twice of leaving Adrian, the role portrayed by Jericho Rosales.
Aquino made this statement after the confrontation scene between Locsin and actress Maja Salvador in the top-rating series was brought up during the “P.O.V.” segment of “The Buzz.”
In the May 20 episode of "The Legal Wife," Monica (Locsin) gets enraged after finding out that Adrian and Nicole (Salvador) saw each other again. This, after Monica finally forgave her husband for having an affair with her best friend.
Monica, who was planning to start anew with Adrian in Canada, decides to confront Nicole to leave them be. The scorned wife turns violent when Nicole puts up a fight and claims Adrian to be hers.
The violent scene has Monica holding Nicole by her hair and hitting her several times. Monica is only pacified when Nicole makes a panicked confession that she is pregnant with Adrian's child.
Speaking on the show where she’s one of the hosts, Aquino explained that every wife has this tendency to choose to believe their husbands to save their marriage.
"Kasi sometimes, when you’re married, you want to believe that nothing happened. You want to believe your husband na ‘Oo wala, kinukulit lang ako. Wala talaga. Hindi ko siya ginalaw,’” she said.
Aquino, however, said it is already a different matter if the mistress admits that she is pregnant with one’s husband.
“Kasi yung sinabi niya na buntis, iba yun eh. Parang yun ang confirmation… Kapag narinig mo nang buntis, that’s already a confirmation na yes, something happened. Nagtalik na sila, may intimacy na. So if ganun, if I were Angel, walk away na,” Aquino said.
Aquino was last married to star cager James Yap but their marriage was declared null in February 2012, following allegations of infidelity on Yap's part.
The two have patched things up since then and are now friends for the sake of their only son, Bimby.
