In her Instagram Live Feed last night, July 19, Kris Aquino revealed that years ago, Angel Locsin had bought a lot in Quezon City intending to build a home with then boyfriend Luis Manzano.
Before telling it all, Kris first addressed Angel, “Puwede ko ba sabihin kung bakit ka napilitan bumili dun para matapos na?”
The two close friends were at the block screening of the movie I Love You, Hater that Angel organized with Kim Chiu, another of Kris’s girl buddy.
With permission, Kris commented, “Bumili siya sa area kung saan siya umasa na sana dun sila titira.”
To which Angel responded, “Tapos na yun, Ate.”
Kris then explained she only mentioned it because Angel recently had trouble with the same Quezon City property.
"O ‘yan na lang, tapos na… ayaw ko lang maubos pa yung dinownpayment niya kaya ginawa ko yun.”
She added, “That is love,” emphasizing her concern for Angel.
The following is the gist of Kris’s live feed last night, with special appearance of Angel.
ALL FOR ANGEL. According to Kris, Angel encountered a problem with the aforementioned QC property last March.
And that was the only reason Kris was forced to reconnect with ex-fiancé and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.
Turning to Angel, Kris said, “Puwede ko na ikuwento?
"Yung tinawagan ko yung never ko kinausap nang dahil sa ‘yo. Yung mayor...”
Angel exclaimed, “Huwag na!”
But a persistent Kris retorted, “Sige na, para ma-explain ko sa kanilang lahat…
“Fast lang, para ma-clear. Kaharap ka na, e... Kasi sinabi nila bakit ako naghahabol dun.”
Then teasing Angel, Kris said, "Eto naman talaga ang may kasalanan.”
Angel then came forward to admit she was indeed the reason Kris made the first move to reach out to Mayor Herbert after several months.
Angel said, “Ako po ang may kasalanan. Nagpatulong kasi ako kay Ate Kris regarding bahay ko.”
She also teased Kris, “Pero hindi ko naman fault kung may naramdaman ka ulit Ate, ha?”
Kris played along and jokingly blamed Angel for her heartbreak after that episode with Mayor Herbert.
She recounted, “Nagawa ko naman na talaga, Gel, at that point, ha?
“Five months na hindi siya kinausap, binura, nakalimutan siya.
“Pero nang dahil sa ‘yo nilunok lahat ng pride, nasa Amerika, sinabi, ‘This is Kris. Mayor...
"'puwede ba kitang tawagan?’ Yun na yun.
“So, lahat naman po kayo na bina-bash ako na bakit dead na dead ako dun?
"Hindi po. Dahil love ko [si Angel]. Yun lang buong kuwento nun."
Again, Kris addressed Angel, "Nakabalik po sa buhay ko at nag-usap ulit kahit nakalimutan na...
"Dahil sa ‘yo. Tapos dahil sa ‘yo, tuloy umasa ulit at na-heartbroken ulit."
Angel, for her part, explained what the problem was with her property.
"Nagkaproblema sa City Hall kasi parang may nasunog na area.
“Kaya yung record ng bahay ko parang magkaiba yung naka-record kung sino yung owner...
"Nagkaproblema ako so nagpatulong ako kay Ate Kris.
"Kahit na may ganun, nilunok niya lahat ng pride niya para lang sa akin."
FRUSTRATED NINANG. The live banter between friends proceeded with Kris putting Angel on the spot, albeit affectionately, by getting her “naudlot na inaanak,” meaning Luis, in the conversation.
This was in reference to the time when Kris had promised to be the godmother of Angel and Luis at their wedding.
However, Angel and Luis broke up in January 2016.
Kris said, “Yung isa mong ex, yung dating inaanak ko… Nag-sorry ako sa kanya.
“Gel, alam mo naman, in-unfollow ko yun para sa ‘yo.”
Angel interjected to clarify she had nothing to do with Kris unfollowing Luis on Instagram.
“Wala akong sinasabing ganun!”
Kris continued to explain her apology to Luis, “Choice ko yun. Ganun talaga ako.
"Nag-sorry po ako sa kanya with my whole heart.
“Sinabi ko, ‘When I saw that you’re happy already with him…’"
Kris paused for a moment and asked the person recording the Instagram Live feed to pan the camera.
And there was Neil Arce, Angel’s current love, who was on the sidelines, smiling.
Then Kris went on to say that she made peace with Luis when she saw Angel and Neil happy together.
“Diretso lang talaga ‘to. Nung nakita ko happy ka na, sabi ko, puwede ko na siya i-friend.
“Tapos nag-sorry ako dun. Sinabi ko, ‘Ang totoong friend hindi namimili.’”
KRIS APPROVES. The Instagram Live feed then went from Angel’s past romance to her present love.
Angel and Neil started dating sometime in March 2017.
In February 2018, the 33-year-old actress confirmed their relationship.
“Now you’re happy,” Kris remarked. Angel cheerfully said in response, “Super!”
Kris added, “Gusto ko lang ma-sure na happy ka,” then she assigned a task for Angel.
“Kaya ngayon, ang responsibility mo, hanapan mo ako kagaya ng nahanap mo.
"Kailangan kasing bait niyan—kung gaano ka pinagtanggol.
"Kailangan ganun ang mahanap mo for me."
BUDDIES KRIS, ANGEL, KIM. Kris pointed out she and Angel see nothing awkward about Kim being good friends with Bela Padilla, Neil's former girlfriend of four years.
From their conversation, it is clear their friendship is as solid as ever.
"Sinabi ko talaga, and buti nandito si Neil to hear this," Kris said at the very start of the Instagram Live feed.
Addressing Kim, Kris said, "Alam ko best friend mo, di ba, si Bela? Sorry ha, naririnig ng lahat, buong Pilipinas..."
Angel tried to shut her up, "Ate ano ka ba! Walang issue!"
In the end, Kris expressed her appreciation for the friendship of Angel and Kim, saying she "could not get over the fact" that they would organize a block screening for her movie: "They must really love me."
Angel, who might have been caught off-guard by Kris's candid statements about her love life, also expressed her gratitude to the 47-year-old TV host-actress for being such a loyal friend.
She said, “Sabihin niyo na lahat kahit ano’ng gustong niyong sabihin kay Ate Kris, pero alam namin kung papa’no siya.
“Lagi niya ako pinagtatanggol kasi naniniwala siya sa akin. Hindi ko na kailangan i-explain sa kanya...
“Pag kaibigan ka niya, hindi mo kailangan mag-explain, ipagtatanggol ka pa rin niya.”
Seen below is a group photo of Kris together with Kim, Angel, Julia Barretto, and Bimby Aquino at the block screening for I Love You, Hater last night:
