Okay, okay, I really don’t know what I have against Kris Aquino.  Almost everyday there’s an article about her. People are fascinated by her. People love reading how messed up she is. She has (political) power, money and fame. Yet the things that fascinate people are her screw-ups. How can somebody like her still be so fucked up?

Her personal life is a mess. You don’t need a degree in psychology to understand why she hooked up with the likes of Philip Salvador and Joey Marquez. Her marriage to James Yap, that one, needs more digging up to understand why and how it happened.

She’s in the headlines again, nothing new there. What amazes me is what comes out of her mouth every time she tries to convince people to ‘like’ her. In the article: “Kris not back in Joey’s arms“, some businessman who contributes to the Business Section of the Philippine Star, apparently criticized Kris for getting back together with then flame, Joey Marquez. I have to agree with Ricky Lo with this one. That man had no business talking about Kris’ love life. What’s her personal life got to do with the economy? Unless her reuniting with a former partner ignites a catastrophic economic event, those businessmen should also shut the fuck up. I was on Kris’s side on the issue… until she opened her mouth and reacted. 😦

She said people must have heard her talking about another Joey but they just assumed it was Mr. Marquez. Okay, so far so good, right? Now this is where I get peeved:

I just wonder why people are so quick to portray me as the malanding nakihiwalay and James as the mabait, naaping asawa? When all of last week ako ang nakabantay kay Bimby in Makati Med when he was confined from Wednesday to Saturday. Walang narinig ang tao from me na akong dakila and James didn’t even offer a peso for medical bills. (Portions deleted by me. — RFL) Kaya lang exhausted na ako with people wanting to just see the worst in me.”

Lemme just talk to Kris right here, right now:

So Kris, you said you’re wondering. Let me tell you why. People see James as the good guy because he’s quiet. He doesn’t go yapping to the press about every fucking deal that’s happening in your lives. That’s just it, he’s quiet. Unlike you. See what you did there in your qoute? You just belittled your son’s father again. For not helping with the bills. You could have just complained about his absence when your son was sick. Instead, all the people would see and hear is the fact that he hadn’t given you a dime.

People will continue to scrutinize your every move because you’re not one of us. Your father was the Philippine hero of the new century, your mother a former president and your brother the current one. So when you go into relationships with men who legally still had wives, have a kid, then get pregnant again with a man ten years younger than you, people WILL talk about you. People will criticize you.

You can’t tell people you’re the good guy and you’re the noble one just because you said so. You can’t tell them “I did this and that so you should be on my side”. It doesn’t work like that. Perception is a powerful tool. People judge on what they see and hear. And what they see is this rich powerful girl who wants the law and public opinion on her side. Not gonna happen, dear. Not in the near future anyways. Cuz you just can’t keep your mouth shut.

I hope this is my last post about her. I doubt that she’d keep quiet. I just hope that I’ll have more restraint next time and not be annoyed enough to rant again. Fingers crossed.
