PLUS: Mocha Uson says, ‘We’re not bots!’; cool socialite uses status to get free food for friends
The public should get more used to sighting the new darling couple in showbiz, KC Concepcion and her beau former Azkals team captain Aly Borromeo.
Always out and about, In the Know caught up with the beautiful twosome at the Fashion Can Serve just before the weekend. KC was there to support Mark Bumgarner, the featured designer, for the benefit runway show, since developing a connection with him for their common advocacy of breast cancer awareness.
Of course, she asked Aly to come with her, but initially found herself apologizing to the press because the football star didn’t want to grant any interviews.
To back track, it was just in June this year that the pair went public about their relationship on social media. “It’s good to keep it private but we’re not keeping it a secret” was how KC described how they choose to handle their relationship.
Back tracking even more, it was in 2011 when KC last had a high profile relationship with heartthrob Piolo Pascual. All is well with them now after what seemed like a bad break up, but ever since then KC never jumped into any big relationship.
Apparently, she decided to take the advice of her late lola Elaine Gamboa Cuneta: “I was able to heed her words of wisdom to ‘collect and collect, then select,’ to know who’s really sticking around and what it is I like and don’t about a person.”
With that KC feels ready to be in a relationship more than ever with Aly. “This time, I think I can really say I went in to this relationship, hoping it will be for the long haul,” she added.
The “Mega Daughter” also shared how her boyfriend makes up an entire cheering squad just for her. “He’s been very supportive and he’s been such a good, good partner. He’s been decent and he’s very sincere to me.”
Moments after, the very private Aly gave in and allowed a quick interview, sharing a few details on how he met KC. “I knew her since we were 13 years old and then we came to meet again earlier in the year,” he said.
He also described how well they get along, saying, “[I think] it goes hand in hand—I’m an athlete and she is an artist, we both jive in many ways.”
Barely one year in their relationship, Aly is very open to the possibility of settling down with KC. “That’s up in the air but we’re both on the same pathways in our career and we’re both transitioning,” he ended.
According to the controversial President Duterte supporter Mocha Uson, she landed more projects and gigs since going all out for the equally controversial Chief Executive.
Yes, that’s what she said.
In the Know got to interview the singer and blogger at her partnership event with online gaming company Crossfire Philippines.
Though her Facebook page dubbed “Mocha Uson Blog” is constantly being questioned for its credibility, her posts have helped her transition from her sexy image into an online figure—no matter the bashing.
She has no regrets for anything she writes, said the lady. And she even has this to say to those who accuse Duterte supporters of creating fake accounts just to trend online: “Hindi kami bots. Una tinawag kaming mga Duterte supporters na “Dutertards;” pangalawa tinawag kami na troll; pangatlo blind followers; pang-apat fanatic; ngayon bots na! Sila naman ‘yung kaaway ng pagbabago, sila ‘yung blind haters!”
[‘We are not (ro)bots. First they called us Dutertards, then trolls, then blind followers, then fanatics. Now they call us bots! They’re the enemies of change; they’re the blind haters!”]
She also denied that her group Mocha Girls are now received coldly at bars where they perform. This, even if they’ve dropped their “bra-and-panty” trademark costume for more decent outfits.
She clarified, however, that her choice to be more conservative rooted from her religious faith, which took five years to nurture, and not because she supports the President. Mocha is now a Christian.
“Ngayon iba na, naramdaman ko ang pagmamahal mula sa Panginoon. Humingi ako ng tawad and naramdaman ko ang kapatawaran niya. [It’s different now; I feel the love of the Lord. I’ve asked for His forgiveness and I feel He has forgiven me.”
GUESS WHO? Word’s got out in social circles about the notorious antics of this “cool girl.” Whenever she’d go out with a guy admirer, she would bring her whole gang and to the poor guy’s surprise, and to top it all off, she goes and chooses the priciest items on the menu, from a bottle of wine to the food!
One Guy Victim also noticed that Cool Girl barely eats the food anyway, and what’s worse, it seems like she just orders it for her friends, and demands Guy Victim to pay for everything.
Definitely not cool.
Until next week, ta-ta!
