Kris Aquino speaks up about her brother Noynoy Aquino's rumored relationship with stylist Liz Uy.
After President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's breakup with Valenzuela councilor Shalani Soledad, rumor has it that he is developing a romantic relationship with his stylist Liz Uy. Push.com.ph asked the president's sister, Kris Aquino, about the rumor. "Noy and Liz are both single. Karapatan nila yan and alam naman ni Liz'hellip;kasi she knew us before she knew him so alam din niya kung sino kami at kami nakilala namin siya bilang Liz. Ako ang gusto ko lang maging happy sila kung pinapaligaya man nila ang isa't-isa sana magpatuloy yun. Sa kanilang dalawa sana, kasi kung nakikita man sila, wala naman silang dapat itago."
As the presidential sister, Kris wants to protect his brother's image through consistently drawing the line between showbiz and politics. "We should respect the fact na kahit kapatid ko siya, pinuno natin si Noy and siguro yung ibigay natin yung paggalang through pagbibigay ng certain level of privacy of course we also understand that he is the country's most eligible bachelor and nagaabang ang buong Pilipinas kung sino nga naman talaga ang makakabihag sa puso niya kasi naman 50 (years old) na siya and baka naman in the next six years or so mag-settle down na siya talaga," Kris said. "Ako, I always say kung saan liligaya kapatid ko at kung saan ko makikita na talagang aalagaan at mamahalin siya 100% ang suportang ibibigay namin."
Kris was careful to avoid commenting if she likes Liz for her brother. "In the same way that I would pray na my siblings will never comment na about who I will be dating when I am annulled dahil sinabi nila sa akin na tatagal ang annulment na iyan kung magde-date [na daw ako] ngayon so when I am annulled'hellip;' Kris said while laughing.
"It is up to Noy, I mean he has waited this long so kung saan talaga siya mapupuno as a person, kung saan mapupuno ang buhay niya ng kaligayahan at pagmamahal kung sino man iyon sana dumating na, kasi he deserves it, he truly deserves happiness and I still pray na magkaroon siya ng anak kasi I can only imagine kung gaano kahirap yung trabaho and mas mahirap na wala kang inuuwian."
Kris, as well as the rest of her sisters, has a high respect for Liz on how she protects her private life despite being professionally engaged in the showbiz industry. As Liz's close friend, Kris reveals, "I can really tease her kasi naman'hellip;Alam mo kasi noon noon pa ginaganun ko na siya kaya sabi niya sa akin, 'Ano ka ba geomancer?'rsquo; Ang pinakamaganda kay Liz at pwede ko maipagmalaki she came from a very public relationship and she never spoke[about it]. 'Di ba wala tayong narinig na anything, kung meron mang nagaganap ngayon wala rin tayong naririnig sa kanya so yung paghanga at respeto namin sa kanya buong buo talaga and nakikita ko naman kasi talaga na mabait, maalaga, maaalalahanin and sincere si Liz."
