Cupid’s Hits and Misses
The god of love aims for the heart—but sometimes he misses
t’s that time of the year when adorable but often naughty Cupid takes his bow and aims it at hearts, dahlins’— and no one is spared when he takes aim! Let’s start with the happy hearts around town. One of my dearest palangga, the vivacious and ultra-talented designer, Charina Sarte, is happily engaged to her super nice and good-looking French boyfriend Valentin Kretz who presented her with a dazzling engagement ring and will set their big day sometime this year. A great way to end three years of long and short distance togetherness for the darling designer of the country’s welldressed society.
Another one belonging to the gang of the “It” gals is the gorgeous, successful, internationally renowned bag exporter Rocio Olbes. She will have a grand wedding early this year to a gentleman-about-town who has been linked to some of our glamorous and smart bachelorettes—handsome Antonio Ressano, an ADB senior urban development specialist. Après a short courtship, the lovers decided to say their “I do’s,” breaking the hearts of many bachelors and bachelorettes. C’est la vie, dahlings!
Now, for Cupid’s misses that resulted in many a broken heart.
Sultry head-turner beauty said her “adios” to her good-looking old famille husband. Parents to their two children, they’ve been together several years and everyone thought theirs was a happy marriage. But then nobody really knows what broke the straw off the camel’s back. Whatever it was, the fact is both the ex-wife and ex-husband are free as birds, palanggas, and flying to freedom!
Another shocker was the separation of two of our town’s old wealth familles. Everyone thought they were the perfect and nicest pair who were married for several years. But only a few months ago, I saw the wife, a beautiful feminine beauty, in several clubs with just her friends. It had me thinking why her husband was never seen with her. Now, I have the official word that the couple have decided to go their own separate ways.
And finally, we have the binding of togetherness without having to go to the “rough path” of keeping a marriage blooming.
We start with the gorgeous TV host Issa Litton and ABS- CBN’s Head of Sales Philip Cu-Unjieng who are happier and more in love than ever après a couple of years of being together, but not living together—which many say is “the secret of a lasting love.”
The best example of this is the love affair of a couple who have been together for 24 years but keeping their own private pads. That is how they give each other a breather from each other. Yes, palanggas, believe me: it WORKS!!! Happy Valentine’s to all you happy lovers, regardless of being married or not. N’est-ce pas?
