QUEEN of All Media Kris Aquino said she is giving up on love and wants to focus her time and attention to her two sons and her showbiz career.
“Give up na! Hayaan na lang muna. Parang hindi doon ang swerte,” Aquino said on the sidelines of the Yahoo! Celebrity Awards 2014, where she received the Female TV Host of the Year trophy.
Aquino shared she realized that maybe God gave her a loving children and successful career because she is not meant to be with someone now.
“Hindi na. Okay na ako with my two sons. Okay na ako sa takbo ng career ko. Siguro yun nga ang sinabi ni God, ‘Uy, wag ka masyadong maraming hinihingi. Makuntento ka na sa kung anong meron ka,” she said.
“As it is now, nasasabi ko ito kasi kailangan pa ako ng mga anak ko. Seven lang si Bimb and nine lang si Josh, pero pag hindi na siguro nila ako kailangan, doon ko mafe-feel na sad ang buhay. While I feel needed and love, it’s okay,” she added.
The TV host said that even cosmetic surgeon Dr. Vicky Belo tried to hook her up with a non-showbiz guy but it did not work out.
Meanwhile, Aquino was asked if how her close friend, Derek Ramsay, helped her cope with her recent breakup with Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.
She said the actor has been her “sounding board” and would often encourage her to move on, look at the bright side of life and to be optimistic all the time.
“Mabait siya talaga. Maraming beses na immediate family mo lang ang pwede mong hingahan ng sama ng loob, pero ang family mo din nagsasawa na sa angst mo. So, dapat meron kang ibang sounding board,” she said.
“Kasi minsan lang sa lalake, katulad nun sa ‘Sex and the City’ (line) na ‘he’s not just that into you,’ na kailangan yung lalake pa magsabi sa iyo nun, ‘yun ang papel niya. Pero in the same way na pag malungkot ako, gumagawa talaga siya ng paraan,” she added.
Aquino said she is thankful for Derek’s patience and for giving her male’s perspective on things. She said she better understood the situation because the actor was there to make her reflect on things.
“Na-feel ko with him na whatever I tell him, nagkakaroon ako ng male perspective. Halos lahat ng close friends ko bakla, si Vice (Ganda), si Boy (Abunda), tapos yung staff ko, katrabaho ko, walang male,” she said.
“Sabi ko nga kay Derek ang swerte ko na siya yung natatangi na alpha male na naging kaibigan ko na pwedeng sabihin sa akin ng diretcho na, ‘Can you just stop? Stop, don’t waste your time and just shut it off’,” she added.
When asked if she had told Ramsay that she is giving up on love, the TV host-actress said she mentioned it several times and the actor would often shrug off her statement.
She said Ramsay is positive that someone will come along the way and will deserve the love she could give.
“Ang sinabi niya, ‘I hope that you’ll realize that not all men will hurt you. Wag ko daw isara yung puso ko sa possibility na may lalakeng magiging totoo, mag mamahal at magiging faithful,” Kris ended. (MNS)
