Twitter and tabloid reports link P-Noy to mystery date named "Barbie" and celeb stylist Liz Uy
Following reports on the alleged breakup of President Noynoy Aquino and Valenzuela Councilor Shalani Soledad, Aquino is now being linked to celebrity stylist Liz Uy, according to Tonite. Uy, an ex-girlfriend of actor John Lloyd Cruz, is friends with local stars including TV host and actress Kris Aquino, the President’s sister. Tonite entertainment columnist Favatinni San said the supposed new pairing does not come as a surprise because Uy styles Aquino as well. "Naku, isa na kinikilig ay si Kris Aquino na kilalang matchmaker... Ha! Ha! Ha! Aprub naman ito sa ibang kapatid ni Krissy. (Kris, a known matchmaker, is giddy over her brother and Liz. Aquino’s other sisters approve of Liz too.)" Salve Asis of Pilipino Star Ngayon also wrote about Kris’s matchmaking skills and the Aquino sisters’ approval of Uy.
The supposed romance between Aquino and Uy is an old issue, TV host and actress Anne Curtis told ABS-CBNNews.com. Curtis said it is "understandable" for her friend Uy to be linked to Aquino because she is part of the team that styles the President, along with fashion designer Paul Cabral and makeup artist Juan Sarte. But Curtis dismissed the issue, saying, "It’s all part of the business." She said she does not know if Uy has heard the rumor because the stylist is currently confined in a hospital due to food poisoning.
P-Noy is also being linked to "Barbie," an unidentified woman supposedly spotted with the President at the Nuvo Restaurant and Wine Bar in Greenbelt 3 in Makati. Tina Pamintuan, celebrity chef and new owner of L’Incontro Ristorante Italiano, Tweeted on October 9, "At nuvo, next table smoking a cig & on a date guess who? Pres noy. Bodyguards casual. Should I send tequila?yes or no.. Hehe!" TV host and actress Ruffa Gutierrez retweeted this post and added, "A LITTLE BIRDY SAYS PNOYS DATE: BARBIE."
Pamintuan also Tweeted, "Hmm gossip girl here: his date likes lychee martinis. And I heard him say ’do I make u laugh’ that’s all for now. Waiting for pda (public display of affection)!" She claimed to have met the President’s alleged date in the restroom of Nuvo: "she’s sweet.lips sealed."
In her Pilipino Star Ngayon column, TV host Lolit Solis also mentioned the President and "Barbie"’s supposed date "at a bar in Makati on October 9."
