Ai-Ai delas Alas was caught off-guard yesterday, December 18, when she was asked about her wedding that supposedly took place in Las Vegas in the past. Many people expected that she would deny the rumor. Instead, she paused dramatically before answering, "Ah...noon pa yun, kumare, nung 2002. Pero hindi ko puwedeng sabihin kung kanino."
Even Eugene Domingo and director Wenn Deramas, who were seated beside her, were shocked by her revelation. Uge (Eugene's nickname) expressed surprise and quipped, "Uy, hindi ko alam 'yan ha, akala ko best friend mo ako!"
Direk Wenn even asked Ai-Ai, "‘Even before mag-Tanging Ina, ikinasal ka na?'" Uge then cracked a joke, "Madam President, ano itong pinasabog mo?"
Ai-Ai explained, "Tinago ko po para hindi magulo. Hindi ko po talaga puwedeng sabihin kasi may pamilya na siya."
Right after the presscon, Ai-Ai revealed details about the wedding. Why did she marry the mysterious guy six years ago?
"Part pa ito ng kaloka-lokahan days ko pa noon. Minsan kasi loka-loka ako, mahilig akong magdesisyon ng abrupt. Kung ano ang gusto ko, yun na yun. Kahit patayin n'yo ako, hindi ko sasabihin kung sino yun. Hayaan na lang natin siyang manahimik. 'Wag na natin siyang pag-usapan kasi may pamilya na yung tao.
"Gusto ko lang ma-feel yung mga tulad ng binabalita na ‘Uy, nagpakasal kami sa Las Vegas.' Gusto ko lang maramdaman kung anong feeling ng nagpapakasal sa Las Vegas."
The star of Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat then clarified that she did not have a same-sex marriage. She also revealed that she and the guy had been together for a year before they decided to wed in Las Vegas. Ai-Ai recalled that the wedding just cost $700.
Is this wedding legally valid?
"I don't think so. Sa Las Vegas kasi, may mga laro-larong kasal at isa yun. Ang marriage contract namin noon, Xerox copy lang. Loka-lokahan lang kasi hindi siya serious."
When asked if she has regrets about the mock wedding, she said, "No, hindi naman. Masaya siya saka experience siya."
Is the guy from ABS-CBN? Ai-Ai refused to answer and exclaimed, "Ayoko nang magsalita!"
Before the interview ended, she insisted that the man she married was not Robin Padilla.
