Nakikisali? Joy Belmonte explains hand at ‘Kristek’ issue
It was a showbiz question begging for a showbiz answer.
Before receiving any large-scale backlash online, Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte explained how she appears to have broached the topic of Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista’s lovelife during a press conference in Quezon City.
The politiko was being quizzed whether rumors were true that she will have a faceoff with TV icon Kris Aquino when she runs as mayor in the May 2019 elections. She was surprised with the turn of the questioning, as she was suddenly being asked about Aquino’s relationship with Bautista.
As much as she wanted to avoid personal questions, Belmonte had to give something for this persistent showbiz reporter that day — thus, this article.
It can be recalled that Aquino and Bautista once dated, but fell short of an exclusive relationship. Is this a second chance in the works? Uy!
