Kris on Nancy-Vice Ganda row: How sad ABS-CBNnews.com Posted at 05/11/2013 3:52 PM | Updated as of 05/11/2013 4:05 PM
MANILA, Philippines -- Kris Aquino said she is saddened by the recent exchange between comedian Vice Ganda and senatorial candidate Nancy Binay, whom she has close friendships with.
During a campaign rally in Antipolo City on Friday, when she formally endorsed mayoral candidate Casimiro "Jun" Ynares III, the 42-year-old actress-host was asked about a comment made by Vice Ganda hitting Binay's supposed lack of experience in public service.
"Yeah nga eh, how sad. Takot ako kay Vice, kaya ayoko na magsalita, baka ako naman ang awayin niya," Aquino said, laughing.
Last Monday, Vice Ganda mentioned Binay's name when asked if he has any plans to pursue a career in public service.
"Gusto ko president ako agad," Vice Ganda said in jest, "'Yung wala kang background, pero mataas agad, parang 'yung mga pulitiko lang ngayon. Walang background, pero senador agad."
Asked if he is referring to any senatorial bets in particular, the 37-year-old comedian said, triggering laughter, "Sila Nancy Binay, sino pa ba?"
In response, Binay cited her background as personal assistant to both her parents, Vice-President Jejomar Binay and former Makati City Mayor Elenita Binay.
Aquino, the youngest daughter of President Benigno Aquino III, earlier refused to answer whether she intends to vote for Binay, a candidate of government opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).
The Kapamilya star, however, has openly campaigned for the Senate bet's brother, re-electionist Makati Mayor Jejomar "Junjun" Binay, Jr.
Addressing Vice Ganda's remark about Nancy Binay, Aquino said on Friday, "Alam mo kami ni Vice, may respetuhan. I think the reason we've stayed this close for the past four years is because Vice respects my opinion, and I respect his opinion."
She added: "Kaming dalawa, we've stayed the best of friends dahil may tiwala kami sa isa't isa at hindi kami nakikialam sa isa't isa, sa mga gusto namin sa pulitika."
Asked if she hopes to serve as "bridge" between Vice Ganda and Binay's camps, Aquino said, "Ay, wag na, kasi galit na sila ano... parang feeling ko kasi, they don't have to be close."
Aquino also expressed thanks to her "Sisterakas" co-star for throwing "100% support" behind her plans to seek public office in the 2016 elections.
"Thank you kay Vice dahil sabi niya na ‘pag ako ang tatakbo, 100% ang suporta niya, so sana pati 'yung pondo manggaling kay Vice," she said, laughing.
Television host Vice Ganda revealed which senatorial candidates he will vote for come Election Day on Monday, May 13.
In his official Twitter account on Saturday, the "It's Showtime" host posted: “1.Escudero 2.Hontiveros 3. Gordon 4. Casiño 5. Angara 6. Cayetano 7. Jun Magsaysay 8. Pimentel.”
