DJ Chacha with her book, 'Napakasakit Ate Chacha: Mga Usapang Malikot, Maharot at Makirot'
MANILA – While she is used to giving all sorts of love advice to ordinary people who call her show, FM radio MOR 101.9’s DJ Chacha also has some words to share for some of the country's most prominent personalities.
In an interview with Wilson Lee Flores as published in The Philippine Star on Sunday, DJ Chacha, whose real name is Czarina Marie Balba, was asked for love advice for several celebrities whose love lives made headlines in 2013.
Below are some of DJ Chaha's witty replies:
For President Benigno Aquino III:
"I would try to share advice about his love life, and why his past relationships were mostly short-lived. Maybe our president thinks bagets pa siya (he is still young). I would advise him that he’s already mature and needs to settle down, that’s what I would honestly tell him if he called my radio show.
"Hindi porke marami kang pera at hindi porke galing ka sa Aquino clan ay basehan na para makahanap ka nang matinong babae at seryosohang relationship. My advice to P-Noy: in 2014, he should be serious about looking for the woman he could settle down with. I would remind him that he’s no longer young and that it’s time for him to have his own family."
For Kris Aquino:
"I would advise Kris that she shouldn’t have a boyfriend now, pahinga muna ang puso. I think guys are intimidated by her. I would tell her that she should keep in mind that when it comes to relationships, even if she’s Kris Aquino, all are equals, she and the man."
For Freddie Aguilar:
"I would tell Freddie Aguilar that, yes, I believe that age doesn’t matter in love, but at least naman wait for the right age before marrying her so people won’t accuse him of being a maniac!"
For Sarah Geronimo:
"Pakialamera pa rin nanay niya sa love life ni Sarah. She’s already 25 and is going to be 26 this year. Sarah is already of the right age and she looks like a responsible girl. If Sarah wanted to get pregnant before, she could already have done so before, but she’s responsible. Sarah’s mom should give her freedom to decide on her own, especially on love."
For Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero and Heart Evangelista:
"I’m not telling Heart that it’s all right for her to quarrel with her parents, but in my opinion Heart is right to fight for her love for Chiz. They’re not doing anything wrong. I think sooner or later, with perfect timing, Heart’s parents will eventually accept a guy who’s separated, a man who came from a bad marriage and with two children. Hopefully for Heart, Chiz is the guy for her already, hopefully he will be her last boyfriend, because it’s difficult too if one keeps on changing boyfriends. She should prove to her parents that she’s not wrong in fighting for Chiz.
"I would also tell Chiz that I think he’s a gentleman, because he never publicly badmouthed the parents. I would tell Chiz he is right in not saying bad things about Heart’s parents in public, because I think he knows the problem can be overcome and he doesn’t want to someday regret it."
For Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez:
"Mar and Korina seem happy now. My advice to them: Go have a baby soon, do not delay anymore, because you’re no longer young."
For Piolo Pascual:
"Ayoko magsalita. Kung saan siya masaya, doon na lang siya, mabait kasi talaga si Piolo. He deserves someone to love him and to take care of him, kung sino man siya, ang suwerte mo, kasi si Piolo Pascual ‘yan."
For Vicki Belo:
"My concern about Dr. Belo is she might go back again to Hayden Kho. I would advise her: tantanan mo na, huwag mo na balikan. Learn from the last, she should learn from past mistakes and move on."
