Kris Aquino said "yes" to Herbert Bautista’s unromantic marriage proposal
We could’ve had a Bistek wedding.
(SPOT.ph) It was a relationship that caught everyone by surprise when the news first broke out. It turns out that the relationship had more surprises for the two people involved.
In a blog post aptly titled "The State of My Heart" then followed by the Whitney Houston hugot classic, "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" (with matching lyrics), Kris Aquino opened up about her relationship with former boyfriend, Mayor Herbert Bautista. She apparently cut her hair, stopped eating food that reminded her of him, and took a That Thing Called Tadhana trip to mend her shattered heart.
And who can blame her? She said they "spoke of building a life together." It was that serious, guys.
In fact, it was so serious that he actually proposed. "He said he was tired, he didn't want to play games, he was tired of chasing and of running away, and he wanted to feel secure with someone he could grow old with," wrote Kris. "He said, ’walang romance, walang lokohan, walang bolahan. Okay na raw ba ’ko to marry him kasi nga PAGOD na siya?"
It was not the most romantic way to ask for a woman’s hand in marriage, which she admitted herself, but she "was in agreement."
According to Kris, things soured after she attempted to introduce Herbert to her family. "...I realized he never said he loved me, he was simply tired, and I didn't want to be his version of Salonpas, Alaxan, Ben Gay, or a massage," she continued. (How eloquent.) It only got worse when she spoke about him on her show (thankfully without a statement shirt), and he broke up with her a day later. Over the phone. Gasp.
Herbert, meanwhile, has said that their relationship was still in the "infant stage." Er, someone probably needs to clarify what "infant" means with the good mayor.
