Kris Aquino has apologized to Miss Universe 2012 first-runner up Janine Tugonon who received criticisms after announcing her breakup with boyfriend Jaypee Santos on "Kris TV" last April 16.
The Queen of All Media defended the beauty queen, noting that some people are siding with Jaypee just because he seems to be the underdog in the hullabaloo.“Ang painful kasi maybe ‘di ba? Ang Philippines, we love an underdog. Noong nanalo si Janine, ano bang ginawa ng Pilipinas? – sinabi na hindi deserve ni Jaypee si Janine, ‘di ba? Kasi ‘di ba ang dami nagsabi before na... hindi siya ganon ka-cute, and all,” Kris pointed out. “Noong time na ‘yon pinagtanggol (siya) ni Janine.”
“I think ha, in my opinion lang kasi kasalanan ito ni guy, The Script (referring to Danny) kasi alam naman niyang may boyfriend ‘yung tao eh,” Kris stressed.
She added, “Tao lang naman siguro si Janine…” Her guest co-host Melissa Cantiveros butted in, “---na nasilaw sa kanyang ka-gwapuhan!”
According to a report, Janine is still in France and her management had already directed her to not comment on the matter. The beauty queen also stopped posting her sentiments on Twitter. Her last tweet dated April 16 read: “Stop jumping into conclusions.. Nothing's going on!!!”
