MANILA, Philippines—President Aquino has something (or someone) to look forward to in 2013.
If the predictions of self-proclaimed psychic Danny Atienza were accurate, the most eligible bachelor of the country would meet a new girl who would likely be the one to make him happy. Aquino’s last relationship, with Korean TV personality Grace Lee, ended sometime in 2012.
Atienza, who had predicted that the President and Lee would not end up getting married, said in the weekly Fernandina forum in San Juan City on Wednesday that the “year of love” would be good to the 52-year-old, who at one point compared his love life to Coke Zero.
Later asked for details by the Philippines Inquirer, without naming names, Atienza said that the girl would be someone outside politics, more likely a private individual.
He described the girl as “bright” and somebody “of good breeding,” someone whom the presidential family, even Kris, the President’s sister known to speak her mind, would like.
“Her trademark is, she’s really beautiful. Really, really beautiful,” he stressed to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
In fact, Atienza said the girl, though not a model, would be “the most beautiful” among all the other girls the President has ever dated.
Aside from Lee, the President has been linked to several other women, including his stylist Liz Uy, Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad and stockbroker Len Lopez.
Atienza said the new girl, as in the past, would be younger than Aquino.
Asked if the relationship would last long, Atienza said, “Of course.”
He said it would last “for years,” and would be the President’s longest.
And so the big question: Will the country be hearing wedding bells in the near future?
Unfortunately, Atienza doesn’t think so.
He said the President rushing into marriage was still a “big question mark” this year.
“But that doesn’t mean he won’t get married (with this girl). Maybe some other year,” he said.
