HAS ZSA ZSA PADILLA FOUND NEW LOVE: ' I AM VERY INSPIRED'

Has Zsa Zsa Padilla found new love more than a year after the death of her long-time partner Dolphy? During the concert of Gary Valenciano at the Araneta Smart Coliseum in Quezon City on Saturday, April 13, Zsa Zsa was seen with architect Conrad Onglao. They were even seen leaving the venue while holding each other's hands, prompting talks that the Divine Diva is dating the renowned architect. It was previously reported by The STAR entertainment editor Ricky Lo that the singer-actress is currently seeing a “famous architect slightly older than Zsa Zsa.” “Debonair, drop-dead handsome, fine-mannered, moneyed and fancy-free again after two failed marriages. In short, he’s what you call God’s gift to women, kasing-guapo ni Piolo Pascual. His first name will remind people of a five-star hotel,” the report further described the “famous architect” Zsa Zsa is dating. “I am very inspired,” Zsa Zsa said when asked about her love life in a taped interview with ABS-CBN's news program “TV Patrol” aired Monday, April 14.

It was Sharon Cuneta who played cupid for veteran singer Zsa Zsa Padilla and renowned architect Conrad Onglao. In an article written by the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Thelma Sioson San Juan, the two shared how Cuneta, whose house Onglao is building, played a key role in setting them up for a date. More than a month ago, Onglao said he was asked by the veteran actress if she could set him up with her friend, who she did not identify at first. Cuneta asked the same thing to Padilla, who also agreed saying she’s already tired of mourning. Padilla’s long-time partner, Philippine Comedy King Dolphy, died almost two years ago. The two then met up for an early dinner in Makati one Sunday, which lasted for three hours. The article said the two couldn't recall much of what they talked about. Despite this, Padilla and Onglao’s “blind date” was followed by two other meetings – within the same week. “He’s good to me. He treats me well,” said Padilla. Onglao, for his part, said he admires Padilla’s simplicity. “She’s funny, witty, simple and so grounded. What I love about her is her simplicity and she’s never full of herself; it’s never it’s-about-me. A sense of selflessness. And we share values when it comes to family, career,” he said.READ MORE...

Over the past two weeks, netizens have become unwitting (unwilling?) spectators to the guessing game pertaining to the identity of Kris Aquino’s new suitor. With cryptic messages posted on her Instagram account, the TV host fanned the flames. Some speculated that Kris was dating Brazilian-Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga; others claimed it was Bataan Gov. Abet Garcia. The name that sparked the loudest buzz was Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista’s. He was reportedly spotted dropping off Kris at the ABS-CBN compound recently. Kris uploaded on Instagram a snapshot (which has since been deleted) of her family—including her sisters and President Aquino—with Mayor Herbert. The caption read: “Family Dinner.” Just when everyone was convinced that “Bistek” (Herbert’s show biz nickname) was her mystery man, Kris started posting on the same social networking site thank-you messages to actor Derek Ramsay. The posts, she told her fans, were “up to your interpretation.”
And before the issue could take new twists and turns, Kris suddenly put an end to the mounting guesswork.

We’re all familiar with the men in Kris Aquino’s life post-James Yap – like Daniel Matusnaga and Derek Ramsay. These two hunks were recently linked to Kristeta but the truth is that there was really nothing going on between Kris and any of the guys. She's been dating Herbert Bautista, mayor of Quezon City, pala. On the other hand, not a lot of people are familiar with Ma. Teresa “Tates” Gana, the common law wife of Herbert. So who is she? Tates is the mother of two of Herbert’s kids: 10-year old Harvey, who is part of Goin Bulilit, and 17-year old Athena, who is the Joel Lamangan film Sitio Camcam. According to Rey Pumaloy of Pep.ph, Tates may not be from showbiz but she has a lot of celeb friends. After all, she used to organize a lot of Herbert’s events and also entertained his guests. A lot of the press people call her Mayora.

“Beauty fades. Someone who brings out the best in you. Someone I can talk to for hours on end,” he added.

ZSA ZSA AND CONRAD ONGLAO

MANILA – It was Sharon Cuneta who played cupid for veteran singer Zsa Zsa Padilla and renowned architect Conrad Onglao.

In an article written by the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Thelma Sioson San Juan, the two shared how Cuneta, whose house Onglao is building, played a key role in setting them up for a date.

More than a month ago, Onglao said he was asked by the veteran actress if she could set him up with her friend, who she did not identify at first.

Before their first date, Padilla and Onglao admitted they did not know anything about each other and even had to Google each other before their first meeting.

Prior to Padilla, Onglao was married to interior designer Ivy Almario, with whom he has two sons. They were divorced in the United States and obtained a legal separation, and church annulment here in the Philippines.

Asked to describe their relationship, Onglao said, “The nice thing about getting older is you trust your gut feel.”

Padilla, for her part, said, “The past is past, I am in my present, but that’s been part of my life.”

The two have been seeing each other for a month and 15 days now.

Kris on ‘KrisTek’: A joint project Admission of romance on national television draws mixed reactions online By Allan Policarpio Philippine Daily Inquirer April 13, 2014 | 12:05 am


KRIS Aquino wants to keep mum about Herbert Bautista who guested on her show. www.abs-cbnnews.com

Over the past two weeks, netizens have become unwitting (unwilling?) spectators to the guessing game pertaining to the identity of Kris Aquino’s new suitor.

With cryptic messages posted on her Instagram account, the TV host fanned the flames.

Some speculated that Kris was dating Brazilian-Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga; others claimed it was Bataan Gov. Abet Garcia. The name that sparked the loudest buzz was Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista’s. He was reportedly spotted dropping off Kris at the ABS-CBN compound recently.

Kris uploaded on Instagram a snapshot (which has since been deleted) of her family—including her sisters and President Aquino—with Mayor Herbert. The caption read: “Family Dinner.”

Just when everyone was convinced that “Bistek” (Herbert’s show biz nickname) was her mystery man, Kris started posting on the same social networking site thank-you messages to actor Derek Ramsay. The posts, she told her fans, were “up to your interpretation.”

And before the issue could take new twists and turns, Kris suddenly put an end to the mounting guesswork. In the April 7 episode of her prime-time talk show, “Aquino & Abunda Tonight,” Kris revealed—in what many jested was her personal Sona (state of the nation address)—that the boyfriend was, indeed, the QC mayor.

Work in progress

She read from a written statement, which she said was prepared with the help of Mayor Herbert: “Now there’s somebody in my life who is special…

We’re a work in progress; it’s a joint project that both of us are happily undertaking with maturity, respect and commitment,”

Sure enough, before long, Kris’ declaration—as everything she says and does—was all over entertainment websites, getting as many hits as news on pressing national issues.

From the online rejoinders, the romantic pair, now known as “KrisTek,” is drawing mixed feedback. Many sent well wishes; not a few were skeptical.

From Inquirer.Net: “Bistek for senator, Tetay (Kris) for QC mayor?” said pinoypower.

“I smell [a] political relationship and I will trim my fingernails if I did not get it right,” swore B3ntong.
“Just a media stunt,” said Klar.

Local blogger Professional Heckler jested on Twitter: “Sources say Kris Aquino finds Herbert Bautista a reliable potential boyfriend. And Herbert finds Kris a reliable potential endorser.”

To be fair, Kris denied last month that she would run for public office in 2016. “It’s not on the table,” she said in “Aquino & Abunda Tonight.” But she added that she wasn’t closing her door on politics altogether.

In her revelation, Kris said she hoped to strengthen what she and Mayor Herbert had “by keeping quiet and private.” Of course, a netizen offered unsolicited advice.

kapitanvic1: “Please leave the people alone…[don’t] force-feed them with every detail of what’s happening with [your] love life.”

Well-wishers
“Kilig much ako sa kanila. May chemistry sila,” said Anonymous. “In fernes blooming [s’ya] at mukhang happy talaga…I think HB is the perfect match for her.”
(I shudder in happiness because of them. They have chemistry. In fairness, she is blooming and looks really happy. I think HB (Herbert Bautista) is the perfect match for her.

One fan, Giselle Najera, noted: “They are on the same wavelength.”

Kris’ ex-husband, cager James Yap, has wished the actress happiness in previous TV interviews. “Stay in love. Thank you sa lalaki na nagpapasaya sa kanya,” he said. Their five-year marriage was annulled in 2012. Their son Bimby just turned 7.

Joey Marquez, with whom Kris had an equally controversial relationship, wasn’t spared. In an ambush TV interview, Joey gave an inscrutable statement. “I’m very happy for all of us…for the entire world!” he said, laughing.

Ramsay didn’t think Kris was seeking publicity when she dropped his name earlier. “I don’t feel like I’ve been used,” he told reporters at his recent contract signing with Regal Films.

In her announcement, Kris vowed never to speak again of her relationship with Bistek. “Ito po ang una at huling pagkakataon na pag-uusapan ko si Mayor Herbert,” she said, “sa punto ng buhay namin, whether in my shows, interviews or my personal social media posts.”

That should assure commenter kapitanvic1.

Meet Tates Gana, the woman Kris Aquino is replacing in Herbert Bautista’s heart

We’re all familiar with the men in Kris Aquino’s life post-James Yap – like Daniel Matusnaga and Derek Ramsay. These two hunks were recently linked to Kristeta but the truth is that there was really nothing going on between Kris and any of the guys. She's been dating Herbert Bautista, mayor of Quezon City, pala.

On the other hand, not a lot of people are familiar with Ma. Teresa “Tates” Gana, the common law wife of Herbert.

So who is she?

Tates is the mother of two of Herbert’s kids: 10-year old Harvey, who is part of Goin Bulilit, and 17-year old Athena, who is the Joel Lamangan film Sitio Camcam.

According to Rey Pumaloy of Pep.ph, Tates may not be from showbiz but she has a lot of celeb friends. After all, she used to organize a lot of Herbert’s events and also entertained his guests. A lot of the press people call her Mayora.

Tates is also the founder of iHelp Foundation, which she started “to show gratitude for the many blessings she has received” and that “she is very fond of children.” At the same time, she is the president and CEO of iLearn Center, which, according to its site, is “a fast-growing training center that offers TESDA-accredited programs.”

Tates has chosen to not talk to anyone about the Herbert-Kris relationship, although when a friend of hers asked her about it, before Kris' announcement, Tates supposedly said, "hindi ko pinoproblema. Hayaan mo lang sila," reports Mario Bautista in Showbiz Portal. "Talagang dedma lang siya at hindi niya sineryoso," said the friend.

Kris, on the other hand, read her (and Herbert’s) statement, and informed that she will not talk about this new relationship again.
