The presidential sister and queen of multimedia of the Philippines, Kris Aquino seemed to have a budding relationship with the news anchor, Ted Failon. During the TV Patrol this evening, Kris was interviewed by Ted for her coming movie for the Metro Manila Film Festival. The movie was titled “Dalaw” (Visitor in English). Ted asked who could be visiting her.Kris’ eyes twinkled and her face split into a big smile. He was, however, seemed caught unprepared when Kris told him that Ted knew that they have a scheduled dinner in the next two weeks. He further teased by Kris who told him that they could never tell. He might be sitting next to the President Noynoy in the dinner table. He might also be his brother-in law. Ted remained speechless and kept on smilingly covering his face as Kris finally said that he must not deny her. Kris is known for being vocal about her personal life because she always reveal in public anything that concern her life. Actually, she has her own magazine, “Kris” that captures the events in her family like trips, cooking and many more. The viewing people give her the attention because her life is such an spectacle since she firstly appeared in See True, the movie show of the late Queen of Intrigues of the Philippines, Inday Badiday. The days to come would mostly be followed on the development of this current relationship of Kris.
Her best friend in show business, talk show host Boy Abunda said that he was happy wherever she was happy after that interview was showed in the SNN (Showbiz News Ngayon). He also said that Kris and her ex-husband James Yap are now in amicable terms. Boy, however, did not want to confirm or deny if Ted is pursuing Kris or if they are already getting steady at present.
As all of us know in the Philippines, Kris Aquino has just separated from James Yap. He is an MVP basketball player, with whom she has a child, Baby James.She now calls him Bimbi. Hearings are held for the case of the annulment of their marriage. Her previous relationship also was tumultuous. She lived Philip Salvador to the consternation of a lot of people because he was a known womanizer. He is the father of her first-born, Joshua. His previous marriage made him incapable of marrying her. Her mother, former President Corazon Aquino was hurt. Her brother, Noynoy was cold.When, they parted ways, Kris returned to her mother who forgot everything because of her big love for her. Noynoy was pleased. However, her second relationship, that with Joey Marquez, a former mayor of Paranaque who was also a former basketball player, brought her much pain. The public commiserated as she cried in public. Noynoy was beside her sister on her down moments.
Ted Failon, on the other hand, is a widower. His wife just died last year. He has a daughter, who is now studying film in Cebu. He is one of the top-caliber broadcasters of the network where he and Kris work. He is a favorite of millions on radio because of his funny discussions of the current events with Korina Sanchez in their daily morning program. Much like the older and ex-Vice President Noli De Castro, he worked his way from dire poverty from his province. His becoming a congressman previously was an evidence of his charisma with the people
