/ 09:50 PM December 21, 2015

“I DON’T think she liked Noy,” said Presidential sister Kris Aquino when asked why her brother’s relationship with Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach didn’t prosper.

In an interview on Monday, the younger Aquino said she and her sisters liked Wurtzbach since the time she was rumored to have been dating President Benigno Aquino III.

“All of us kaming mga sisters, from before pa, we liked her, noong naru-rumor that they were dating. Because one, she could have easily denied [that they were dating] because that was the time na ‘yung SAF big deal, and Noy was being hit left and right. But she spoke up for him. Kaya sabi ko ay matapang itong girl na ito,” she said.


Kris was referring to the Mamasapano clash that left 44 members of the elite Special Action Force of the Philippine National Police, 23 Moro rebels and several civilians.


“But I don’t think she liked Noy,” she added, drawing laughter from the media.

The younger Aquino believed that Wurtzbach treated her brother well but the beauty queen was focused on her preparation for the Miss Philippines and Miss Universe.

“I think she entertained him but the thing is, you can tell from her character na single-minded. Kinailangan na ito ang focus ko muna,” she said.

The actress-host congratulated Wurtzbach, admitting that she was impressed with how she answered during the question-and-answer portion.

“She answered so well,” Kris said, referring to Wurtzbach’s answer on her stand on the reestablishment of US military bases in the country.

Citing the shared history of the Philippines and the US, Wurtzbach said that the Philippines is “very welcoming” to the Americans.


“I don’t see any problem with that at all,” she said.
The TV-host said she agreed with Wurtzbach’s answer.

“I agree with her. Because in a world where China is so strong we need them. Let’s be honest. Kailangan natin sila and let’s be friendly with them, di ba?” she said.

During final question-and-answer portion,   all the candidates answered the question: “Why should you be the next Miss Universe?”

Wurtzbach said that she wants to lend her voice to certain causes such as HIV/AIDS awareness and youth issues.

“I want to show the universe that I am confidently beautiful with a heart,” she said.
Aquino said she was inspired by Wurtzbach’s answer.
