Only three definite things in this world: death, taxes, and a Kris Aquino controversy.Three days before President Noynoy Aquino’s inauguration, she did the inevitable: almost stealing the limelight away from her brother’s inauguration, in a tearful farewell announcement on The Buzz, which should receive an award for propagating cultural enlightenment. And for fuck’s sake, how many times has she delivered lachrymose farewells on that show already?In the second to the last week, her name came up in the front pages of newspapers, allegedly for trying to have a hand in selecting the next senate president. She was reportedly calling up senators one by one to support Sen. Francis Pangilinan. One of the candidates for the post, Franklin Drilon, admitted he—a Cory loyalist through and through—was deeply hurt. A week after… kaboom! She will not be eclipsed by her elder brother’s shindig. And she will never understand the real joys and values of privacy.
