GMA News Online reports that President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's rumored relationship with TV personality Grace Lee seemed to have gone sour, taking into consideration the supposed jokes the President made in a speech last Saturday, May 5, in Negros Occidental. During his speech, President Aquino reportedly said he is not yet ready to tie the knot. "Nabanggit pa naman ni [Transportation] Secretary Mar [Roxas] kanina, 'mass wedding' sabi ko, 'Teka muna, hindi pa ako ready'."
