Just like yesterday’s news, Shalani Soledad seems destined to be tinapa wrapping. PNoy (poging Noynoy) can’t seem to decide on what to do with her. After helping him get the support of stupidly “kilig” voters, Shalani is now becoming increasingly irrelevant and marginalized.
At least Ogie and Dingdong were offered posts.
We saw how she was relegated to “OTHERS” status at the legislative proclamation of her BF (MU?) PNoy – where Noynoy didn’t even ask her to stand by him at the rostrum.
Now, we don’t even know who will be holding the Holy Bible at the formal inauguration of BSA (bullshit Aquino). The honor traditionally belongs to the spouse of the Chief Executive, but in Noy’s case, he has avoided answering definitively.
Oh Noy also heard a little birdie tweet that the Aquino siblings really don’t like Shalani (Kris has made that so clear), and that they are maneuvering for the young lady to exit her ugly BF’s life soon.
It’s all politics nowadays for this Aquino bunch. Politics and public perception.

Long live Corona! Noynoy BOO!
Displaying the true independence of the Judiciary from the Executive, Chief Justice Renato Corona – the same guy who PNoy (as in Pikon Noy) doesn’t want to swear him in – has “ordered a review of the long-standing labor dispute involving the vast estate of the family of president elect Benigno Aquino III in Tarlac,” according to the Philippine Star.
Poor Hacienda Luisita farmers (it is more proper to call them serfs, if we look at the way the Aquinos and Cojuangcos treat them) apparently wrote the Chief Justice, requesting him to review and act on an UNBELIEVABLE FOUR-YEAR TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER against the distribution of the sugar plantation in accordance with CARP.
If you ask the Cojuangcos and Aquinos, they’d rather stick to the stupid SDO (stock distribution option) they forced down the throats of the farmers – not true land distribution as mandated by law. We know, of course, that (bless her soul) President Cory Aquino had conveniently excluded the Hacienda Luisita from agrarian reform – said to be the centerpiece of her administration.
The farmers wrote:
“It is in the highest interest of the Filipino people and farm workers of Hacienda Luisita to end this long-running feudal reign and exploitation with the immediate, unconditional and free distribution of Hacienda Luisita to 10,000 farm worker beneficiaries…”
The article continues thus:
Joined by Anakpawis party-list group and Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan), members of the Hacienda Luisita unions have protested the move of the Cojuangco-Aquino family to put up fences around 170 hectares of the estate.
The Luisita Estate Management has been transferring hectares of lands to commercial banks and foreign commercial enterprises despite the TRO issued by the SC, the union members alleged.
Anakpawis Rep. Rafael Mariano said Hacienda Luisita’s distribution to farmer-beneficiaries would remain “an impossible dream” under the Aquino administration.
“Another Aquino administration will provide the Cojuangcos all the political ammunition to deny farmers of their rights to the land,” he said.
Arthur Cadungon, Bayan-NCR spokesman, said Aquino should make himself accountable for the mass killing of farmers in Hacienda Luisita in November 2004.
“Like what he wants to do with the culprits of the Maguindanao massacre, we want to see how decisive Noynoy will end impunity in the country and how he will serve justice to victims of the brutal mass murder of farm workers of Hacienda Luisita,” he said.
Ayan, binoto-boto niyo ang berdugo, e.

Kris Aquino to SHUT THE TWEET UP?
Kris Aquino: “I will suspend being active on Twitter”
Actress and TV host Kris Aquino-Yap posted in her Twitter at 5:40 p.m. today, June 18, that she plans to cancel the account. Her reason: To keep “what is left of our privacy.”
Known as itsmekrisaquino in the popular social website, the celebrity host’s tweet last week caught the public’s attention. She wrote (published as is): “Stress & long hours led to a big misunderstanding. I have never lied to all of u until now hindi pa completely na-fi-fix. That’s y I’ve just chosen to keep quiet since it’s something very private.”
The telling statement elicited several responses from her followers, and was picked up by the media. Though it did not turn into a full-blown showbiz controversy, Kris decided not to fan the flames.
Her latest tweet read: “I received this tweet several days ago—bakit hindi nyo minemention si james sa mga tweet nyo, only josh & baby james? I replied to it w/ honesty. My attention was called by Noy about this. So in the interest of keeping what is left of our privacy—I will suspend being active on twitter.”
Kris reasoned that leaving her Kapamilya talk shows, SNN and The Buzz, will not “make sense” if she maintains a public Twitter account, where her posts will be susceptible to judgment and speculation.
“Sometimes being quiet (obviously difficult for me) is the only prudent course when u r the sister of the country’s president elect. Thanks to all who followed my tweets,” she ended.
You think she can endure not hanging her dirty laundry in public for so long?
We know that Kris is such a media whore – delighting in exposing every minute detail of her life in every forum she can appear in.
As for her last tweet, we have known for so long already that trouble has been brewing in her sham marriage to James Yap.
As Mr. T so eloquently put it: I PITY THE FOOL!
Well, Kris, I hope you can resist not tweeting – and not commenting on TV, either.
Good luck to you with that one.
And James, good luck din sa yo, pare. Andami pa namang NORMAL na babae diyan e.
