MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino on Wednesday confirmed that he’s dating TV and radio personality Grace Lee.

“We’re seeing each other,” Aquino answered when asked at the tailend of a news briefing the real score between him and the radio talk show host and TV anchor.

The reporters cheered the President, “Yihee.”

Pressed on how long they’ve been seeing each other, the President  invoked his right to privacy.

Aquino, 51, has been linked to various women, many of them younger than him.

Jailed former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has accused Aquino of encouraging gossip about his love life.

“Neither the President nor anyone else can truly expect to govern the next five years with nothing but a sorry mix of vilification, periodically recycled promises of action followed by lethargy, backed up by few, if any, results, and presumptuously encouraging gossip about one’s love life in which no one can possibly be interested,” Arroyo said in a paper “It’s the Economy, Student.”

      AND THAT IS HIS BIGGEST PROBLEM answering all question, and when the question is already becoming sensitive he would say he has the right to privacy.

      when a question is ask analyst it first in  your brain, before you answer (sorry wala palang brain itong abnoy na ito)

      You get this trick when you are still in your shorts or in your elementary education.

      He (abnoy) is not being transparent, he is just showing that he is abnormal.

    OMG, it’s half past 9 and this is like one of my earliest days.  I just couldn’t help it.  After what happened last night, with me and Grace, I just couldn’t help it.  I woke up this morning all wet, and not just from drool.  You now, like any regular teenager who is secreting profusely and sometimes excessively, I too am no exception.  I just want to let all of you, my staunchest followers, my loyal believers, my dwindling critics, thank you for your increasing support as evidenced by the increasing number of comments.  I am so heartened by all your moral and emotional support.  I feel so special with so much attention coming from so many people.  I feel like I’m officially more sikat now than me sister Kris.  You know, we kinda have this sibling rivalry, I’m supposed to be better looking than she is.  Yah, well, maybe except for my unevenly combed hair, otherwise I stand out in all other respects.  And speaking of respect, let me hit the shower now, I have a long day ahead of me. 

    Til later.  I’m texting my Amazing Grace now.  And speaking of Amazing Grace, she gives me this soothing feeling like I could forever rest in peace.  Galeng daba!  As in!  OMG, really gotta go na!

    Many people close to Pnoy are FORCING TO ROMANTICALLY LINK PNOY with women, mostly IMAGINED. Remember ABAD telling everyone after the election that it was him who made the tsismis linking Pnoy with women “para daw may mapag-usapan about Pnoy”? And what about Kris Aquino’s endless ATTEMPT of linking women with Pnoy, from Shalani to Liz Uy? 

    It reveals one thing. There is a question on Pnoy’s TRUE GENDER. The Filipino people don’t want a binabae for a president. Hence, Pnoy has to be projected as a REAL MACHO MAN, at mahilig sa chicks….
