Kris Aquino to Herbert Bautista: ‘You would have loved me more if I was less successful’

Kris Aquino and Herbert Bautista got candid about their thoughts on love and life in a “He Said, She Said” clip on her Instagram.

At the beginning of the seven-minute long video, they both answered what they thought love was. The actress-host used her mother’s wisdom, saying love would bring out the best in a person, while the former QC mayor said it entails sacrifice.  

Kris was frank and blunt when they were asked if she believed in second chances. She immediately said no and explained that there’s a reason why it didn’t work out the first time around.  

The mother of two was honest once again when she shared that her past relationships taught her not to involve herself with anyone again.  

“The career path I chose is very selfish. I understand now kung bakit they all ended up hating me,” she said referring to her exes.  

This led to the next question, where they were asked how important success is in their life. While Herbert said how his kids turn out is his measure of success, Kris told him that it’s a double-edged sword.  

“Di ba sinabi ko sayo it’s a double-edged sword? Sabi ko sayo, ‘I think you would have loved me more if I was less successful,” she told him.  

Kris’ answer prompted a genuine response from Herbert, he confessed that even while she’s successful he still loves her the same.
