MANILA -- Actress-host Kris Aquino admitted that she and her sisters try to avoid defending their only brother, President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.
"He hates that," Kris told her "Kris TV" guest co-host Angel Locsin on Tuesday's episode of the morning show. "Hate niya kasi lalaki siya. Kung sisters siguro pwede kayong magtanggol sa isa't isa kasi iba ang relationship ng sisters."
"Pero ang mga boys ayaw nila na 'yung sisters nila ay makikisawsaw at makikitalk-talk ng ganyan kasi nale-lessen ang masculinity nila. So tahimik ka lang," Kris added.
The TV host's statement comes amid criticisms over the President's Disbursement Acceleration Program or DAP, parts of which, the Supreme Court recently ruled, as unconstitutional.
Kris said she can keep things to herself when it comes to her brother.
"Walang pakialaamanan dapat. Huwag makadagdag sa isyu," she said."When we are with Noy, we try our best to talk about other things para he can breathe other air."
