Kris Aquino says she will 'behave' while her annulment is still being reviewed by the court.
Kris Aquino showed no sign of hesitation while answering the question on when she plans to have a new relationship again. The Queen of All Media told reporters during the press conference of her Metro Manila Film Festival movie Dalaw, "Next year. Ha ha ha! With such clarity and confidence na sinabing 'lsquo;next year!'rsquo;" Seven months ago, Kris filed an annulment case to dissolve her five-year marriage to basketball star James Yap. Kris said that she and James are now beginning to become good friends for the sake of their three-year-old son Baby James.
Kris explained that in 2011, she plans to do her own version of the novel-turned-movie entitled Eat, Pray, Love so she can begin her search for a new love. "I'm turning 40 next year and I'm doing my own version of Eat. Pray. Love. Kaya lang, mauuna si Love. We're going the day after my birthday to Bali kasi it's been our dream. And then, when the kids are in school in September pupunta ako sa Bali. I'll do my version ng Eat sa Italy. Pero yung Pray, gusto kong pumunta sa France. Siguro, kapag natapos ko ang journey na yun, baka by October 2011, magmamahal na ako at may magmamahal na sa akin."
But the TV host-actress clarified that before she gets into a new relationship, she hopes her annulment will be granted by the court. She said her sisters have advised her that it will be helpful to speed up the court process if she will "behave." "Matigas ang ulo at matapang ang puso ko. Pero nakiusap ang mga kapatid ko. Sinabi nila na, 'Kung gusto mong mapabilis ang proseso, mag-behave ka.' Sinusunod ko po sila. Nagbi-behave ako."
Kris also went on to dismiss the numerous rumors linking her to other men, one of whom is the widow and Makati Mayor Junjun Binay. She explained that it would be impossible for her to go on dates like a regular woman because of the number of bodyguards watching over her almost round-the-clock. As the youngest sister of President Noynoy Aquino, Kris, together with her family, is entitled to be guarded by the Presidential Security Group. "Natatawa na lang talaga ako sa lahat ng nababasa kong chismis na nali-link ako kung kani-kanino. Na nakita raw akong kasama ang person na ito. There's always a minimum of four PSG with me and everything is naka-log. So, if Noy wants to check where I was, although I'm 39 years old, I'm still their bunso. I'm still their baby. And ako rin naman, ayokong may maibato sa akin ang abogado ni James. Gusto kong mapadali at mapasimple ang proseso ng paghihiwalay namin. Para kami namang lahat, libre to move on."
Kris plans to make her next relationship different, with an important lesson she learned straight from ex-hubby James. "Ilang beses niyang sinabi sa akin, 'Alam mo, next time, kung gusto mong mag-work ang marriage mo, keep 90 percent to yourself and just share 10 percent. Kung si James na ang may sabi sa akin na, 'Gusto ko maging happy ka rin, pero hindi kailangan lahat malaman nila.' So, I'm taking his word. Sa life experience naming dalawa, tama naman siya."
