“We’re not a ‘couple’ but we are the best of friends.” That is how Queen of All Media Kris Aquino described her relationship with Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista. Aquino posted the statement on her personal Instagram account on Tuesday night, somehow confirming reports that her romance with the actor-turned-politician was over.
In her Instagram post, Aquino also said that she is sure her friendship with Bautista will be for life and thanked him for his “big role” in what she is today. She also thanked the mayor for the cases of energy drink he has sent, apparently to help the actress recover from dehydration.
Last night, Aquino reported on Aquino & Abunda Tonight that she was rushed to the Makati Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon after suffering from severe dizzyness and headache while taping for KrisTV in Manila.
“I was dehydrated, bumagsak lahat ng electrolytes ko. I’m anemic. I had my blood works done… I think that’s the red blood cell count and the hemoglobin count was very low. Pero iyon, hereditary ‘yon. Pero ‘yun lack of electrolytes, I guess it was the heat,” Aquino explained the cause of her hospitalization.
She also clarified that she is not pregnant, sharing that the doctor who checked on her asked if she is on the family way.
“No, I’m not pregnant, doc! Nakakaloka! Hindi po akong puwedeng mabuntis!” the KrisTV host said. “Wala po akong ginagawa para mabuntis ako!” she added.
Two weeks ago, the controversial actress-host confirmed on Aquino & Abunda Tonight that she was dating Bautista. Early this week, reports circulated claiming that the two have called it quits after Bautista allegedly decided to stop pursuing the actress due to the bad press he is getting. Aquino then surprised viewers when she appeared sporting a very short hairstyle on Aquino & Abunda Tonight‘s Monday live telecast, saying “Ayoko na ng heartache” and “It’s time for a change.”
I got home & saw all the Gatorade waiting for me. Thank You HB! (Sorry I broke my rule about not mentioning him in my IG account. ☺️) We’re not a “couple” but we are the BEST OF FRIENDS. And in this uncertain world, we’re sure to be FRIENDS FOR LIFE. That’s actually what we started as, it’s where we are most comfortable being, and for whatever tomorrow may still bring, true & lasting friendship is always the best foundation… May I quote my favorite song? “Thanks to you for teaching me how to live, putting things in perspective. Teaching me how to give, and how to take, no mistake…” I grew up a lot this 2014 & he had a big role in what I am today. #noregrets #stillbelieveinlove #someday
