Boy Abunda says Bimby Aquino had ‘exploratory meeting’ with Cornerstone Entertainment
Boy Abunda clarified that the recent meeting he and Bimby Aquino had with talent agency Cornerstone Entertainment was an “exploratory meeting,” wherein they discussed the possibilities of the celebrity offspring entering show business.
Abunda and Bimby had been seen together with Cornerstone Entertainment executives, which led some netizens to speculate that the young celebrity had signed a contract under the talent management.
The King of Talk then made a clarification on the matter through his show “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” last Wednesday, July 5.
“We had dinner; I hosted a dinner for Bimb,” Abunda began.
“Totoo po ‘yan na doon sa pag-uusap namin ay we were trying to explore kung ano ang mga pwedeng mangyari—the possibilities. [Kung] pwede bang mag-artista si Bimb, ano ba ang gagawin? But it was more of an exploratory meeting,” he explained.
Abunda noted that the gathering was held with the consent of Bimby’s mom, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, who has been in the United States for her medical treatment.
“Meron po ‘yang permiso ng kanyang ina, ang ating kaibigang si Kris Aquino. Kasulukuyan po, ang Cornerstone team ay nasa U.S. and we are hoping na magkausap si Kris at ang Cornerstone; pati na rin po si Bimb ay nakabalik na po sa America,” the TV host added.
Abunda then underscored that he “represented Bimby as his guardian” during the exploratory meeting, and vowed that he would share to the public further developments on the matter.
Days after the said meeting, Bimby flew back to the US with his older brother Josh to reunite with their mom. /ra
