MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Proponents and supporters for the legalization of divorce in the Philippines just got a new poster lady: Megastar Sharon Cuneta, wife of Senator Kiko Pangilinan.
Cuneta urged members of Congress to pass a bill that would make it legal for dissatified, frustrated and embarrassed wives to divorce their husbands, especially if there are irreconcilable differences between them.
The Megastar sent an urgent message to Representatives soon after that embarrassing encounter in the Senate between her husband Kiko Pangilinan and Panfilo Lacson.
During that verbal encounter, Lacson criticized Pangilinan and the rest of the Senators who signed a draft resolution asking the Supreme Court to reconsider its 8-6 decision ousting Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno for violation of the Constitution.
Lacson accused Pangilinan and company of meddling in the affairs of the Court which is an independent, albeit co-equal branch of government.
Cuneta said she was extremely embarrassed by that Senate encounter and wants to distance herself from the antics of her husband.
”Sobra na, tama na,” Cuneta told The Adobo Chronicles.
She urged Filipinos, especially her fans to contact their Representatives to pass a divorce bill ASAP.
The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said that it will recommend to Pope Francis the excommunication of Cuneta for going against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – There will be no new casino built in Boracay despite the “provisional license” granted to a Chinese gaming firm, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said on Wednesday
In a press conference in Hong Kong, Roque said that President Rodrigo Duterte was clear in the interview he gave on Monday that he would not allow a casino in Boracay.
In addition, Roque said that when Boracay re-opens after rehabilitation, there will also be no karaoke or videoke bars.
”The President wants to restore the serenity of the beach resort, not to mention that videoke bars could be deadly for both tourists and locals.”
It has been proven that fatal shootings occur in many videoke bars in the Philippines, especially after patrons sing Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way.’
LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berline Bureau) – Philippines’ Vice President Leni Robredo denied rumors that it was billionaire George Soros who invited her and funded her trip to London for a speaking engagement at the London School of Economics (LSE). Soros, whom President Rodrigo Duterte had said is funding the Human Rights Watch that is critical of his administration, is one of the most prominent alumni of LSE.
But in an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Robredo said that it was not Soros but rock singer Mick Jagger (Rolling Stones) who arranged for her appearance at LSE. Jagger also attended LSE.
So, is Jagger a fan of Robredo, or is Robredo a fan of Jagger?
