MANILA - Star Magic artist Pia Wurtzbach, the newly crowned Binibining Pilipinas-Universe winner, was cornered on Tuesday regarding her ties with President Benigno Aquino by no less than the chief executive's sister, TV host Kris Aquino.
A week before the Binibining Pilipinas coronation night last Sunday, rumors surfaced that Wurtzbach and Aquino were spotted having dinner together at a Quezon City restaurant.
In a live interview on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight," Wurtzbach admitted that she and Aquino have communication and described him as "very fun to talk to."
When Kris requested Wurtzbach to make her brother happy, the beauty queen said, "Okay, [but] he's a very busy man and I'm also very busy preparing for Miss Universe."
Wurtzbach only laughed when Kris promised to be "good sister-in-law" to her.
Aside from his day-to-day engagements as the country's top official, President Aquino has made headlines time and again for his love life, which often unfold to be short-lived romances with local celebrities.
Aquino's past girlfriends include TV host Grace Lee and former Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soleded.
He was also reported have dated stylist Liz Uy and another beauty queen, Bianca Manalo.
