According to the report, “Wurtzbach and Aquino were spotted having dinner together at a Quezon City restaurant.” Eto namang si Pia responded to Kris’s request by saying “Okay, [but] he’s a very busy man and I’m also very busy preparing for Miss Universe.”
I may be out of line saying that a 55 year old lame duck president on his way out of his current gig dating a 20-something beauty queen with a whole life and career ahead of her is just totally creep-a-zoid. But, dude, Mr President, what the hell?
That goes the same for his sister, Kris. You make it sound like Ms Pia is about to be consigned to a life of wet-nursing the soon-to-be former president! Well, that’s sweet of course. Little sister looking out for the “happiness” of Big BS Brother. I’m all choked up. And in this case, Kris “approves”.
Some presidents bring former beauty queens into the halls of power they worked hard to climb into as their current wives. Other presidents get the presidency handed to them on a silver platter, then use the ultimate aphrodisiacs — power and money — to bag a beauty queen half their age.
No surprise that a guy like BS Aquino would fit the latter model. Whatta guy, is all I can say!
