QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She’s is known as the Philippines’ “Queen of all Media,” and, in the last six years, the “presidential sister.” On several occasions, she represented her brother in welcoming and entertaining visiting foreign dignitaries, including Pope Francis and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
As President NoyNoy Aquino prepares to step down and give way to the new Rodrigo Duterte administration, The Adobo Chronicles sat down once last time with Kris to get her personal feelings about her brother’s presidency.
We asked her what her biggest regret was about the last 6 years while NoyNoy occupied Malacañang, the presidential palace.
The spotlight-loving actress and TV host said, “My biggest regret was that my brother did not make me the First Lady. (NoyNoy is a bachelor)
Kris became very emotional during the interview, when we told her that President-elect Duterte has picked his daughter Sara, newly-elected mayor of Davao City, as his First Lady.
“Oh, see, puwede pala iyon (See, it can be done),” Kris said, wiping tears from her eyes.
We empathize with Ms. Aquino and wish her the best of luck, post-NoyNoy.
