TV host, actress amd entrepreneur Kris Aquino requests, via her recent Instagram post, that people stop bullying her and her sons regarding Vice Ganda.
She posted the exchange of text messages between her son, Bimby, and the ABS-CBN It’s Showtime host where the former informed the latter of his plan to sponsor a block screening of Vice’s Fantastica on either 1 or 2 January.
Here is Kris’ post:
“Because my bunso sincerely loves @praybeytbenjamin, his tito vice, I asked bimb’s permission if I may post this text exchange w/ tito vice. Kung ako lang ang iintrigahin — honestly, care bears. But my 11 year old still has a pure heart & I’ll do all that I can to keep it that way…”
“Inuna ni Bimb as you can see 26 December yung text nya offering a Fantastica block screening. Now please stop bullying us, for this issue — MALI KAYO.
“Sa mga nagsasabing bakit ako pumatol at nagpapa-stress, SIMPLE — because I realize it is your goodwill that sustains us so you deserve an opinion BUT more than that what’s at stake is bimby’s friendship w/ his tito vice. I think by now obvious — for my sons kayang manindigan, magsumikap, makipaglaban at magpakumbaba. THANK YOU, NEXT?”
Kris’ text quashes rumors that they are not on good terms with Vice Ganda.
In July last year, the two publicly made up after admittedly “drifting apart partly because she turned down an invitation to appear in the movie Gandarrappido: The Revenger Squad, Vice’s entry to the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival,” according to an online report.
Unfortunately, Bimby’s requested block screening did not push through on his requested date because Vice was in Barcelona, Spain until 6 January.
“I super appreciate it!” was Vice’s reply to Bimby’s text.But wait. Kris has yet to answer the allegations made by her esrtwhile lawyer, Atty. Nicko Falcis, who filed his counteraffidavit at the City Prosecutor’s Office in Manila recently.
He said her complaint against him for qualified theft and violation of Republic Act. 8484 is “false, baseless and malicious.” Nicko worked as the former managing director of Kris’ production company Kris C. Aquino Productions.
Fans and netizens are pushing for Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza to play the lead actors in the Filipino version of the 2016 Korean war drama series, Descendants of the Sun.
The local version is one of the 2019 programs lined up by the GMA Network. Korean actors Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo were the lead stars of the series that aired on GMA from July to September 2016.
Aside from Alden and Maine, fans of Jennylyn Mercado are also rooting for her to be paired with newbie Gil Cuerva as her leading man. The two starred together in the Filipino version of Korean romantic-comedy My Love From The Star.
