Kris Aquino wants P-Noy’s candidate to win
Is Kris Aquino endorsing Mar Roxas in the 2016 presidential elections?
She did not say so.
However, she said that she wants President Benigno Aquino III’s candidate to win.
In the final episode of the ABS-CBN entertainment talk show “Aquino & Abunda Tonight” on Friday, the presidential sister answered questions about her health, showbiz career and love life.
During the show’s “fast talk” segment, co-host Boy Abunda asked Kris to complete the sentence “All I want for Christmas…” to which she answered “is for Noy’s candidate to win.”
Roxas, who is Kris’ godbrother, is the standard-bearer of President Aquino’s Liberal Party.
In previous interviews, Kris said that she will just “shut up” if she will not support her brother’s candidate in 2016.
The actress and TV host is known to have close ties with the families of two other presidential hopefuls–Vice President Jejomar Binay and Senator Grace Poe.
Kris decided to leave “Aquino & Abunda Tonight” after having a health scare a few months ago wherein her blood pressure shot up to 200/110.
“It’s important to have a work-life balance and that’s what I’m trying to achieve,” said Kris, who also has a daily lifestyle show.
On Sept. 30, her movie “Etiquette for Mistresses” with Claudine Barretto and Kim Chiu will hit cinemas nationwide. She will also soon start shooting for another movie with former flame Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.
