The week that was in showbiz-landia began with Queen of All Media’s generous “gift of love”to King of Talk Boy Abunda for overcoming life-threatening condition over the past month.
Krissy, as Boy calls her, gave her best friend her black Hummer, a very expensive SUV, as an advance birthday present (he turns 59 on October 29) and for “staying alive.”
She announced her plans over The Buzz a week ago when Boy returned his hosting duties for the first time since diagnosed with an abscess in his liver. The following night, September 14, following their program Abunda & Aquino Tonight, Kris posted a video (complete with background music, “Through the Years”) where she finally gave Boy her special gift.
“Because he is my best friend, because I’m so grateful he’s alive & because I want to make him happy. I gave Boy the Hummer tonight after A&A. Uulitin ko, kulang pa this gift because sobra sobra ang pagmamahal, pagtiwala at pag aasikasong naibigay at patuloy na binibigay nya sa kin,” the famous giver posted on her Instagram account.
Just as quickly, a post on Facebook read, “Kris gave Boy a Hummer. And then she announced it to the whole world. Class na class.”
As always, the President’s sister latest act stirred up mixed reactions on social media. And as always too, they’re all very entertaining to read.

Rod Vera (Law school professor, IPR Protector, Litigator, President and Convenor of Phil. Assoc. for the Advancement of Civil Liberties) +@attyvera: Will the BIR demand the donor’s tax (20%) for this? … Hummer closed down in 2010. She gave a used one? #whyisthisnews
James (J) Estrada +@KapTiago: Kris Aquino tries to give a hummer to Boy Abunda. He rejects. She gives him a Hummer. He accepts. Hihihihihihihi. #capitalization
