On Kris Aquino’s Instagram post today, attached with an article from PhilStar which says that Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista admitted that Kris asked him to run again for the same position next year, she explained and clarified that she has nothing to do with his decision.
Kris also added that last December it was Herbert who asked his brother Philippine President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino to be included under the Liberal Party.
“Mayor Bautista last December had asked to be included in the Liberal Party Senate Slate. To directly quote PNoy, ‘He isn't turning down the offer. He asked to be included in the slate.’ Obviously he had a change of heart. Wala po akong influence in HB's decision making. I NEVER ASKED HIM TO SEEK A 3RD TERM AS QUEZON CITY MAYOR. I have no influence on him & he has never given value to my feelings nor my thoughts,” she wrote.
She also apologized said that her working relationship with ABS-CBN for almost 20 years has been put in trouble due to her impulsive moves. Below is her full statement:
“It is because of our TUMULTUOUS RELATIONS that I was stupid enough to bite the hand that feeds me... I was so apprehensive about shooting MMFF w/ him that I posted my misguided feelings of hurt & directed them towards Star Cinema. And because of my impulsive move I put in jeopardy what has been almost 20 years of a solid working relationship with ABS CBN.
“My sisters & brother in law were ready to accompany me Thursday night to mend fences w/ Star Cinema, but late afternoon I was told the meeting was cancelled & there was no longer any need to talk. My family understood that it was unresolved personal issues w/ the chosen leading man that made me so indecisive & we as a family were ready to apologize, talk & hopefully work things out- sadly the door was closed.
“This is a very painful lesson for me, and I don't ask for pity- I am just explaining because a man I was so briefly involved with caused conflict by his statement between my brother, my brother's team, and me.
“In the past, I'd run away- travel abroad & let things cool down. I've learned. I apologized to Noy profusely because I love him, and even when there's nothing left- I know I will still have the love of my siblings. I humbly accept that the wrong choice of my heart has put into peril my work- but I am to blame for this. Hindi ko pinasa sa iba yung desisyon na ako naman mismo ang gumawa.
“You know me by now- kaya kong tanggapin lahat ng bira, wag lang ma involve ang mga kapatid o mga anak ko. Pasensya na po sa haba nito, kinailangan ko lang iklaro ang lahat.”
Kris then went on to ask her followers for understanding and said she will rest for the meantime from her social media account.
