Kris Aquino says she often talks to Ted Failon about her and her family's private lives.
During a live interview on TV Patrol last December 7, Ted Failon was rendered speechless when Kris Aquino revealed that he'rsquo;s the only guy with whom she is constantly in communication with these days. The naughty TV host-actress even invited him on air to be her date at the premiere night of her movie Dalaw on December 19. "Ted baka mahimatay ka kapag sinagot ko na ang madalas ko lang kausap ikaw. E 'lsquo;di ba Ted textmate naman tayo talaga? At 'lsquo;di ba may dinner tayo in two weeks? Ted na-speechless ka na. In-on the spot ka nila. Alam nilang ito ang mangyayari na ibubuking kita sa lahat." Kris further put Ted on the spot when she joked that he might be the next brother-in-law of President Noynoy Aquino because of her. "Ano Ted payag ka? Huwag mo ako i-deny Ted ha!"
But during her solo press con for Dalaw that same night, Kris clarified that Ted is not really courting her at the moment. "No he didn'rsquo;t ask me out. Hindi siya nanliligaw sa akin pero we'rsquo;re really good friends. Kanina kasi nagulat ako na siya yung nagtake-over because I was called na it'rsquo;s going to be Korina Sanchez who'rsquo;ll interview me. So pliney time ko si Ted na nung siya yung nandon. Dyinowk ko na, 'lsquo;Naku Ted ha, gusto mo talaga ako makatsika!'rsquo; Yun lang po yun." Apparently, she just wanted to get back at him for disclosing to the public some of their private conversations about Noynoy'rsquo;s rumored involvement with celebrity stylist Liz Uy and Ilongga stockbrocker Len Lopez.
"Kasi ganito yun, aamin ako. Yung mga kinoment niya last Monday (TV Patrol'rsquo;s December 6 episode) when they were talking about Noy's love life, merong input si Ted dun, medyo napagkwentuhan namin yun. So I told him, 'lsquo;Maghanda ka, babawian kita.'rsquo; Sabi mo sa akin secret lang tapos tsinika mo [on air]. Sabi niya, 'lsquo;Hindi naman pangit mga sinabi ko ah?'rsquo; I think he was really shell-shocked [dun sa revelation ko about our closeness and pagbibiro ko sa kanya on air]. I think it takes a lot to shock a Ted Failon. But I think a Kris Aquino was able to shock Ted Failon," she cheerfully explained to the local press.
On a serious note though, Kris admitted that she and Ted have established a deep friendship because of their similar experience when it comes to losing a loved one. "Nag-reach out ako sa kanya nung time na we were transferring mom from La Salle Greenhills to Manila Cathedral. Kasi my mom has said before when his wife has passed away that his daughter was the same age as I was when my dad died. At sinabi ng mom, buhay pa ang mom nun, 'lsquo;Kris puntahan mo sila especially because you would know best what his daughter is going through.'rsquo; And I never got to do that because lumubha na ang condition ng mom nun."
