Sen. Noynoy Aquino and sister Kris.FUNFARE By Ricardo F. Lo
September 04, 2009 12:00 AM 

Last Wednesday night on the ABS-CBN’s late-night showbiz newscast SNN (Showbiz News Ngayon), Kris Aquino said that she and the other Aquinos would support their brother, Sen. Noynoy Aquino, in whatever decision he would make — you know, to run or not to run for president as LP standard-bearer in 2010.

In the next breath, Kris gave Noynoy perhaps an unsolicited sisterly advice: “Stay single.” That’s also what Kris’ son Joshua has been reminding his Tito Noynoy, “Don’t get married.”

Shalani Soledad, Korina Sanchez and Bernadette SembranoNoynoy, 50, is being romantically linked to Valenzuela City Councilor Shalani Soledad who, like Noynoy’s ex-girlfriends Korina Sanchez (soon to be Mrs. Mar Roxas) and Bernadette Sembrano (now Mrs. Emilio Aguinaldo), was a TV host (on UNTV) before she entered politics.

I think Kris and Joshua need not worry. Funfare consulted a manghuhula (not the turbanned type) and she said, “Noynoy is not the marrying kind. At his age, it’s hard to change the course of his private life.”

I asked Kris why she wanted Noynoy to stay single and, for once, she was tongue-tied.

Then I asked about her reaction to Korina’s... potshots?... at, among others, Noynoy (whom Korina didn’t mention by his name, referring to him only as “ang anak naman gustong tumakbo”), and Kris was also intriguingly quiet.

What about Sharon Cuneta whose husband, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, was included in Korina’s hit list?

Sharon opted not to make any comment... for now.

Oh my. Is it the calm before the storm?


APO Hiking SocietyThe fun and music continue to delight audiences at the Sky Dome in SM North EDSA. Up next is the APO in Kayang Kaya Pa, also produced by Viva Concerts & Events, on Sept. 25 and 26.

The last time the APO — Jim Paredes, Danny Javier and Boboy Garovillo — performed at a concert was a few months ago at the Araneta Coliseum. What a show it was! The audience sang along with almost every song the APO did, the same ones — and more! — they are doing at Sky Dome, including Yakap Sa Dilim, Prinsesa, When I Met You, Tuyo Na’ng Damdamin, Salawikain, Pumapatak Ang Ulan, Panalangin, Nakapagtataka, Mahirap Magmahal Ng Syota Ng Iba, Kaibigan, Kabilugan Ng Buwan, Ewan, Doobidoobidoo, Batang-bata Ka Pa, Awit ng Barkada, Di Na Natuto and others that have become classics and kept the APO on top of the local charts.

An APO show is an enjoyable mix of music and laughter and Apo Kayang Kaya Pa in the intimate setting of the Sky Dome will be a great treat. Apo Kayang Kaya Pa is sponsored by The Philippine STAR, the Manila Bulletin, People’s Journal, Business World, PBO, Viva Prime and Viva Cinema. (Note: Tickets are available at all SM Ticketnet outlets. Prices are P2,000 for Gold reserved seats; P1,500 for Silver; and P1,000 for Bronze. Call Ticketnet at 911-5555 or Viva Concerts and Events at 687-6181 local 627 or 620.)

The Sky Dome at SM North EDSA is the newest happening place for concerts in Metro Manila and Viva Concerts & Events has several special shows planned in the coming months. Also scheduled are Men of the 80’s with Raymond Lauchengco, Randy Santiago, Louie Heredia and Gino Padilla; and, together for the first time, champions Rachelle Ann Go and Jed Madela in True Champions plus many others.
