Presidential sister and “de-facto first lady of the Philippines” Kris Aquino is on hot seat again after one of her former house helpers from Borongan, Samar told local media that she had a serious crush on his family’s archrival senator and vice presidential bet Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
Edna Capistrano, 31 from Borongan City, was among the crowd when Sen. Bongbong Marco’s Unity Caravan hit the city on Friday. Marcos was invited by city mayor Ma. Fe Abunda, sister of Boy Abunda who is also one of the best friends of Kris Aquino.
Capistrano was employed by the youngest Aquino from 1999 to 2011 until she got married and had to live with her husband in Borongan.
“Si Mam Kris kasi open sya sa mga tao sa bahay e. Pag masama ang loob nya talagang nagsasabi sya kahit sino sa amin, lalo na sa mga matatagal na nyang nakasama sa bahay”, Capistrano said.
“Nong nakaschedule na interbyuhin nya si Bongbong nong 2009, 2 to 3 days pa lang masyado na syang excited. Alam naman kasi sa kilos nya kahit di nya sabihin na excited talaga sya ma-meet si Bongbong. pati nga isusuot curios. Tinanong pa nga ako kung “kasama kaya asawa nya”?”, she added.
On 2009, Kris Aquino interviewed the then Congressman Bongbong Marcos. The actress and TV host even asked the congressman with curiosity on why he had lost a lot of weight. She then asked him a lot about his personal and childhood life.
“Mahilig talaga si mam sa mas may edad sa kanya. Actually si Bongbong hindi naman ganon katanda e. Magka-edad lang sila ni Sir Joey (Marquez) pero mas bata tingnan si Bongbong”, Capistrano added.
Capistrano was among the local Marcos supporters closed to the mayor who is a member of Liberal party, but endorsed Marcos.
The 45-year old Kris Aquino, the youngest sister of the Philippine president, had been linked to several celebrities in the past.
Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, 58, has been married to lawyer and member of influential clan, Louise Cacho Araneta since 1994. The couple has three sons.
