Showbiz royals

The fascination with these two showbiz royals Kris Aquino and KC Concepcion continues.             

But why are they considered ‘royals’ to begin with?

With Aquino, the last name speaks in volumes, a family name that has so much history, affluence, connection, and responsibility.

Concepcion, on the other hand, is the firstborn daughter of the Mega Star and considered as one of the last Philippine movie queens Sharon Cuneta and the forever heartthrob Gabby Concepcion. That’s quite easy to explain, too.

How do we measure the ‘royalty value’ of Kris Aquino? Well, the bizarre love triangle between AJ Raval, Kylie Padilla, and Aljur Abrenica immediately became yesterday’s news, when at the height of the supposed triangle entanglement, Aquino dropped in her social media accounts, her relationship status — from being single to being engaged to Mel Sarmiento.

The whole of showbizlandia and the general public’s collective jaw dropped with the bomb from Kristina Bernadette, who for the longest time, had nothing but romantic flops and heartaches.             

Aquino, finding the man of her dreams in the person of Sarmiento — who happens to be accomplished, well-bred, and educated, emotionally healthy, and secure – gets the approval she truly deserves from the public. 

Their fast food joint date where Aquino was dressed to the nines in a turquoise-hued dress and Sarmiento in an elegant barong Filipino, made it to the headlines and gave the majority reasons to smile for days.             

With regard to the ‘royalty worth’ of KC, it’s all over her YouTube vlogs. It is undoubtedly a sneak peek at her rainbow-colored way of living.   

KC has a jewelry line. And the manner she promotes it, she makes it an aspirational item that one must possess to be able to have that stamp of “chi-chi” approval from the discriminating set.  

The love and affection she showers on her father, Gabby Concepcion who she called as “the first man who stole my heart” on Instagram truly pulls the heart strings. Her tribute piece for Concepcion made most eyes misty and her acknowledgment of how great Sharon Cuneta raised her as the main reason why there is no animosity between her and the seasoned Concepcion earned her more “awww… she is indeed a girl” point to all who sees Krisitna as their favorite niece from a galaxy far,far away that gets the admiration, love and respects distantly and all who witnessed her growth from toddler to gorgeous are fiercely protective of Kristina Cassandra.              

The man who will choose her, marry her and will give her happiness all her life continues to be an elusive dream and we all know, the Universe and the Supreme Being will gift Concepcion the man who she will truly, madly, deeply fall in love and she envisions him as the person waiting for her at the altar as she walks down the aisle.              

Many are hoping, shipping and wishing that KC ties the proverbial knot with her good friend, celebrity chef Jordan Andino.              

All their YouTube cooking collaborations are well-liked and viewed and the reactions to their undeniable chemistry and fondness with each other is always electric.              

Recently, the two have bonded in the US and video clips of their together also surfaced on social media sites and the majority are in agreement that the two are a match.              

What is also most wonderful about the “royal stature” of these dynamic Kristinas is their conduct in assisting, reaching out, and paying forward to the people who are recipients of their charity.                

For the inspiration and joy they bring, for the lessons, we get from their struggles and painful experiences. For the cheers and smiles, and the hope that stays with us because of their personal and career triumphs, our side of Hollywood is indeed fortunate that we have two royals that continue to make us believe that life is beautiful, thanks Kristina Bernadette Aquino and Maria Kristina Concepcion.
