Kris Crying...

Philippines
March 21, 2013 4:08pm CST
Kris Aquino was crying again, on Channel 2, and she brought her sisters Ballsy, Pinky, and Viel, for moral support. James Yap allegedly tried to kiss her, and hurt her, and witness to the sad episode was their little boy, Bimby. Kris, ultimately, because of this current skirmish, announced she is leaving her tv shows, as it finally dawned on her that this is what her mother Cory had always been telling her: sacrifice and stay simple. My daughter saw Kris Aquino @ d FAME, and while she describes Kris as amazingly beautiful and elegant, skinny Bimby looks ordinary, something like skimpy, that one would surmise Kris simply attempted to make him presentable. But of course, as Pinky would put it, Kris is the loving mother that their mother Cory was. And when the Aquino siblings open their mouths, I believe it, hook, line and sinker. Honesty, that is a family trait. Sorry James, I would have believed your crying earlier on, but I think you became a bit too harsh for comfort.

For whatever the truth is I still believe that when solving private family matters it should be kept as private as much as possible. But I guess their being public figures are what makes them force to do that. It seems they have a moral obligation to explain to the whole world what is happening in their lives.

That's the prize for being a celebrity, RSA. You owe the public explanation for every bit that hits thew news. In my opinion, Kris wouldn't be crying foul if it wasn't really what happened to her and James. I think James is trying to win Kris and in so doing , he went overboard.

True, that is really the price for their being a public figure. I could never figure that out since I am a private citizen who doesn't want that fuzz in my life. I do not want it magnified to this proportion to make my life a teleserye in real life.

I suppose celebrities are created for us to watch, and later on, we can check on our own lives, follow the good examples, or the bad, depends on our orientation and belief, so we could have satisfaction. Or, we see these people on the limelight, and tell ourselves, good thing that predicament didn't happen to me, glad I am not Kris, glad I am not James. Point is, for all it is worth, they pit against each other, and we know they are both noisy and irritating, but we also get to solve our problems, and we check on our conducts, promising ourselves we must never be like any of them. Another thought is, I am not a celebrity, but look how enormous I divulge my life story here on mylot, and I do not even hide my face. I believe that we only have one life, and what is my life if I do not share it with the world. I believe that we all have good and bad stories, why relate only the good when the bad is very much a part of our lives.

Hi there ! I am a living witnessed of Kris up and down . Many failures and mistakes she committed but she rose after each fall with a dignity and pride. A very admirable attribute of a Filipina. When Kris opened her mouth , people must be threatened because nothing will come out in her mouth but all the truths . She is the epitome of honesty. She is the most vocal honest Filipino . Other parties must be afraid to cook stories because they can't stop Kris from telling all the truth , no holds barred , she does it with all bravery , wit and heart. I can't understand why James needs to act when he is a basketball player and not an actor. See how he was trap with his own cooked stories.

I see you are a fan, but more than that, you are the forgiving sister, too, supportive and all, for in our consciousness, Kris is family,a sister, so even if she is so infuriating, erring, we still forgive and feel sad for her. Good analysis of Kris, Angelpink. Hayaan mo na si James, he will come around.

I don't believe her... She's indeed a very good actress to make you believe in her. It's the same story with her past 2 relationship. And why on earth this 2 crony tv station gives so much time for this family issue? It's a family matter and this is not a public or national issue. The timing seems to be suspicious... Are they just side stepping the real issue here? Wake up, people !

romzee, Kris has a very high Intelligence Quotient, but alas, she has very low Emotional Quotient. Her decisions, when it comes to falling in love, is always faulty, probably because she has a strange, unusual childhood. We try to forgive her because we know better, because we saw her grow up. The most that we can do is to wish her well, even if we don't like her, because that is the right thing to do,

I am not a fan of Kris but I would admit that she is really an articulate lady. Regarding her looks, I don't think she is amazingly beautiful. Without makeup, she is but an ordinary fair-skinned woman, an ordinary Chinese looking woman to be exact. But when fully made up and wearing expensive clothes and accessories, she really looks great. I admire the sisters of Kris though. They have my respect. They are plain, simple and very respectable. Noynoy...? Sorry, I don't like him. First he is smoking... I hate smoke and second I don't think he talks like a man in most cases. (Sorry this seems to be out of topic but I can't help.) Now regarding the issue I would like to believe Kris to some extent. I believe James really say insulting words to her like "you are already old, etc.etc".... these hurting words, James intentionally omitted to win public symphathy when he recounted the story. He was telling he was just joking but now I know his story is half truth and so he is lying and I noticed he was not really crying. I saw no tears from his eyes, he was just snipping or did I just miss seeing his tears? But I also believe James when he said Kris threatened her with words like "..my brother has 3 more years....and more. When Jessica Sojo asked Kris if she indeed threatened James with those kind of words, she passed the question to her sisters but the main question was not answered at all. It was just so easy to answer NO but she could not and let the sisters site instances to show Kris was not that type of person. I did not like the way that question was somehow evaded by Kris. So, I believe Kris said those threats but maybe she was provoked to threaten him because of his insulting words.

More than "beauty being in the eyes of the beholder" is the kindness we have in our hearts as we love the people we see. After all, "when you love another person then you see the face of God." People tend not to like another probably because of envy, we try to find fault on others to justify our feeling of inferiority. So we appease ourselves by rendering judgment on the celebrities we see. Or, we simply do not like a person because of the character that makes that person. No matter how Annabel Rama does with her image, she comes in as the loud palengkera to me, no offense to market vendors, please, it is just a term. Nor would Erap be handsome to me, and truth is, I see him now as Batman's Joker, no offense to Joker, ha ha.

Oh well, if indeed every one could see the face of God in every one then this would be a perfect world to live. I believe loving or liking anyone who is not even your friend or family is easy if you see her inner beauty exceeding the flaws of her physical side. Indeed insecurities, envy, feeling of inferiority towards a person (celebrity or otherwise) can incite negative judgement from others. Yes the unlikeable character of a person makes him look ugly no matter how good-looking he maybe. But in the case of how I expressed my personal views on Kris, none of the above applies to me. I am just talking from the point of view of how my eyes behold her physical characteristics. I've seen real beauties that left me speechless even if their characters is such that I hate. I saw Imelda Marcos twice at her peak and though I hated her so, I was stunned.

I do not believe too everything that James had claimed as I recall years back his denials of philandering issues which turned out later as true. They both have faults and shortcomings that resulted to this latest brouhaha but where parenting issues are involved I believe Kris has more than shown what she would do for her kids and for James, sorry but I have some doubts on his real intent.

Saw James one time at Channel 2, and I didn't know it was him, for I was not updated with celebrities or showbiz personalities. James was in a hurry, really excited, and that caught my attention. Then my friend who works in the station said it was James Yap and he was going to visit Kris. I think they fell in love, but as in many romances... Perhaps the age gap was a factor, and perhaps the different social scenario, James still, after all these years as a basketball star, is provinciano. But sigh, that is life, we plan and pursue our ambitions and dreams, fall in love, just to find out we missed out on something...

We really can't judge them because we are not there and we do not know them personally to know what is the really score between kris and james but I do hope that they will settle this peacefully and I hope this will end sooner because the real victims of this is their child bimby..

We have to render judgment at one point, and I think the RTC Judge gagged them both, ha ha. Seriously, of course we were not there, and here it is not a question of who is telling the truth, it is just from what point of view it is coming from. James might be joking, as he claims, but to Kris, it was not appropriate. Bimby witnessed the scene, and reacted against his dad, that was because his mom cried foul, for she got hurt. We women know when a touch or a brush on our skim is gentle or kind, We know when it is malicious and abusive.

I actually believed that there is more to this than what these both parties have said. I believed thatt Kris is a good mother, but she is not perfect. I believed that James wants to be a father to his only son and Kris has gone too far yet again publicizing whatever it is that she and her former husband is going through. I believe there is truth in what kris was saying, and there is also a truth in what James is saying. i wish they can keep this within themselves now... there are too many other news that must be given importance than their private affairs.

I still believe kris is lying. She even let her siblings be part of this circus. shes the total opposite of her siblings. She has done this before with joey marquez. Kris is a disgrace to her family. Shes tainted her parents name and now shes doing it again. I liked her before this happened. i watched her morning show everyday but already stop because of her stupid, manipulative, OA to the max interview. Shes really good in making people believe in her, in other words, a good manipulator. There's no bimby if theres no james yap. it is that plain and simple. kris cannot make james yap disappear and not be part of his son's life. kris only wants bimby's attention all to her and not allowing james yap be part of it. The issue here is kris and james. James is trying to be a good dad but kris is not allowing that. her siblings are just there, to make things more believable on her side. I wont be influence just because her siblings were there during her interview. Even her siblings were even caught off guard by what she was saying. you can tell how innocent they were.

whether you are in politics or in showbiz, pinoy culture tend to be more forgiving and just forget what that person did maybe that is one reason why our country is not moving forward because we tend to forgive easily. We should let that person face the consequences and be held responsible for the stupid action that person did or else that person would only make us more stupid by forgiving that person each time he/she commits mistakes. what do you call a person who keeps making mistakes? that is nothing but pure stupidity. I do not tolerate that kind of behavior.
