Mayen Austria - James Yap's textmate
The incident involving Kris Aquino and one Mayen Austria has taken on a political color. It happened last Wednesday afternoon after Kris heard “a girl” sobbing during a celfon call to her husband, James Yap.
I got the following text message (quoted verbatim) presumably from Mayen Austria:
To everyone. Kris Aquino passed by house to make me sugod. She spoke to my mom. Very mad, berating us saying I always text and call James. That my mom didn’t bring me up right. That we shouldn’t be talking to married men. She said she’s leaving James and to know that I am the last straw and the reason for their break-up. My family has great respect for Teopacos who are our family friend. Mrs. Teopaco is Cory’s youngest sister. My mom raised us right. My mom didn’t deserve all that. James missed called and texted na he warned me pupunta siya sa house. He called to tell me to apologize and say sorry. Kris said we had something going on. I don’t deserve this. Most especially my mom. I have chemical depression and could have easily taken an overdose of pills because of the incident. With the hugs and love of my mom and sisters and tranquilizers, I’m okay. Do you want Kris to be in Malacañang.
And here’s the official statement from Kris, also quoted verbatim:
In my 25 years of being in the public eye nobody can ever say that it is in my nature na magmura or gumawa ng skandalo. I didn’t shout or create a commotion. The mother of the woman sited in an article (Not in STAR. — RFL) graciously came to their gate and we had a peaceful conversation. I simply made my discomfort known about her daughter’s actuations towards my husband. My family received the text that Mayen Austria sent around. In it she admitted to having “chemical depression and could easily take an overdose of pills.” My brother & sisters advised me to not speak further about the issue because it would not be compassionate to dwell further on the issue.
There’s a lesson to be learned from this incident. As Funfare DPA Jumpy Kangaroo said, reminding (especially) women married or single, “Huwag po magti-text or tatawag sa lalaking may asawa.” To that, I add: “Igalang ang damdamin ni misis...at para maiwasan ang gulo.”
