KRIS AQUINO ADMITS TO A BROKEN HEART, BUT THE REASON IS NOT WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK

imageQuezon City, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Philippine TV host and presidential sister Kris Aquino has publicly admitted she still has a broken heart. This, according to an Instagram message she sent to her fans as she took a day off from work yesterday.

Netizens immediately connected Kris’ broken heart to fellow movie actor and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista. It will be recalled that a few months back, Kris was romantically linked with Bautista. Their relationship was cut short with the mayor saying he would want to prioritize his children first.

However, sources close to Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles that Bautista has nothing to do with Kris’ broken heart. The TV host is devastated because the movie The Amazing Spiderman 2 was a huge box office success in the Philippines.

During a Singapore interview many weeks ago with Spiderman lead actor Andrew Garfield, Aquino boasted that no film – local or foreign – will ever surpass the opening-day box office success of My Little Bossings, a slapstick Filipino movie that starred Aquino’s son, Bimby.  As it turned out, Spiderman broke all box office records in the Philippines, grossing over 100 Million pesos in just its first two days of screenings.

“I am so embarrassed and devasted. My heart is broken. I should have just kept my big mouth shut,” Aquino was heard saying as she packed her bag and left work to take a day off.

She also took a break from her Instagram account.

SEX, LICE AND VIDEO TAPE

Manila, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Philippine Department of Justice Secretary (DOJ) Secretary Leila de Lima is facing the toughest times of her career as a public official.

As DOJ secretary, she is heading up the investigation of the 10 Billion-peso pork barrel scam that has implicated senators, congressmen, administration officials, the Catholic Church and even her own department. The scam involved an elaborate scheme to siphon taxpayer funds into phony nongovernmental organizations and projects as well as into the pockets of government officials.

But she is also facing a tough confirmation process before the Commission on Appointments.

Among many others, the president of the Whistleblowers Association of the Philippines, Sandra Cam, is opposing de Lima’s confirmation as DOJ secretary. Cam has accused de Lima of engaging in “illicit affairs” and claims to have a video tape of de Lima having sex with men, including her personal driver. While de Lima’s marriage has been annulled, Cam says that the secretary’s affairs involved married men. Cam has not publicly released the alleged videotape.

In countering the allegations, de Lima questioned the motives and credibility of Cam, saying that the whistleblower must be harboring lots of lice in her head. Asked by reporters if she meant “lies,” de Lima made it clear she  meant “lice,” adding that Cam is just jealous because she can’t get men to have sex with her because of her head lice. “I mean, come on, who would ever want to have sex with a woman with lice,” de Lima said.

Already, many netizens are calling this rivalry between the two women “the battle of the gross!”

AMAZON GOOFS, SENDS PORN VIDEO TO ONLINE PURCHASERS OF HILLARY CLINTON’S NEW BOOK

Seattleimage, Washington (The Adobo Chronicles) – Amazon, the largest online retailer of books and other commercial products, has issued an apology for an embarrassing shipping error in which it mailed out a 1987 porn movie to customers who ordered Hillary Clinton’s new book, ‘Hard Choices.’ The porn flick, directed  by Ron Sullivan who passed away from cancer in 2008, had the exact same title as Clinton’s book.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos who recently bought The Washington Post for $250 Million, personally called Mrs. Clinton to apologize for what he called a serious computer glitch. Bezos said that an Amazon summer intern typed in the wrong International Standard Book Number (ISBN) when he was generating the bar code for Clinton’s book. The intern apparently typed in the ISBN for the porn video.image

It wasn’t immediately known how many copies of the video have so far been shipped to customers.

Bezos also apologized to Amazon’s customers who received the wrong order, saying Amazon will immediately ship the correct item.  He is matching the apology with a $50 Amazon gift card for future online  purchases.

As for the porn video, Bezos said customers who received it in error can keep it at no charge. “No need to ship it back.”
