The Kris Aquino Effect

 

Was there ever a day or a week in Philippine showbiz that she went unnoticed by Filipinos? It seems impossible because we always feel her presence in Billboards, print ads, TV shows, and of course the internet. She is always a trending topic because of her strong opinions and how she reveals her life to the public like an open book.

Who can forget that moment when the nation stopped and cried with her as she told her painful marital troubles and how she contracted STD from her previous partner. We also remember her as the young actress who had the prowess for screaming with a shrill voice as she portrayed the victim role in massacre and horror films. But on a lighter note, when our country was struck by typhoon Ondoy, people credited and applauded her for convincing Multimillion companies and advertisers to raise millions  thru a TV telethon, at the time when the government was clueless how to give immediate response and aid to the victims.

It’s been more than two decades since she debuted in her first movie Pido DIda where she was paired with the late comedian Rene Requiestas. Now as her family strengthen its roots into politics, it seems that we will be witnessing more of her and she is more likely to become an even stronger and influential force in the Philippine media.

Here’s a quick digital sketch of Kris Aquino sporting the new haircut that created mixed reactions and buzz amongst people and netizens who love to hate her.
