Most Romantic Pair

Excerpt from Ricky Lo's Column
The Philippine Star
July 30, 2008


I wasn’t at the launch of Dolphy’s biography Hindi Ko Ito Narating Mag-Isa, "as told to Bibeth Orteza," Wednesday last week at The Tent in The Fort, Taguig City, two days before his 80th birthday (July 25). But I was told that everybody who mattered to the Birthday Boy was there — ABS-CBN president Charo Santos-Concio, Eddie Garcia, Susan Roces and Gloria Romero among them.


According to an observant friend who was there, the night's "most romantic pair" was no doubt Sen. Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez who also set a few tongues wagging — you know, are they, according to the silent buzz, "secretly married?" Nope, somebody close to the couple said with authority, "They are not...yet." But the sweethearts might spring a "surprise" maybe next year. "I keep my mouth shut until then," said the couple’s confidante. "All I can say for now is that if ever Mar runs for President in 2010, Korina will be his not-so-secret weapon." Stay tuned.
