August 23, 2014 Sorsogon, Ang araw at lugar kung saan si Sen. Chiz Escudero ay nagpropose sa kaniyang kasintahan na si Heart Evangelista. At matapos ng proposal ang di maiiwasang susunod na pangyayari eh kasalan. Itinakda nga nila ito sa petsang February 14, 2015 sa Balesin Island Resort sa Polilio Islands .
August 31 ng magpost naman si Ria Gamboa sa Facebook na bump-off ang kasal ng kaniyang kaibigan, para mapagbigyan ang isang celebrity-politician wedding. Napag-alaman nga na ito ay sila Heart and Chiz, at ang kaibigang tinutukoy naman niyang kaibigan si Cesca Litton
Ito nga ang naging statement ni Cesca Litton:
“It came as a surprise when I received a phone call from my coordinator just last Saturday that Chiz and Heart had been approved for February 14 after they had spoken to the owner Mr. Ongpin to reserve the date. Had we known that all it took was a call to the owner, then perhaps none of those formalities should have been followed,”
“In all our trips to Balesin and discussions with management asking to reserve February 14, 2015, we were always told it was available. We would not have invested time and money, including flying out our coordinator and stylist, had they informed us that the venue was booked from the beginning,”
Tumugon din naman kaagad ang may ari ng resort na si Roberto Ongpin:
“I wish everyone to know that it was I, who actually invited Heart and Chiz to have their wedding at Balesin when I had dinner with them shortly after they returned from their trip to Paris sometime in July and even before they announced their formal engagement,”
“After receiving the confirmation from Chiz and Heart, I immediately checked with our reservations people who told me that nobody had actually confirmed February 14 as of that time, so I told them to block it off. So nobody has been bumped off,”
Tumugon din naman si Heart:
“There’s no truth to it. I think that’s the best way that I could answer that. In fact, if they really wanna look into it, go ahead and check Balesin. We’re not like that. This is the best day of our lives, I’m a bride-to-be, she’s a bride-to-be. Who would do that to any bride-to-be? There’s no truth to it and I hope ma-iron out nila,”
I think the real cause of the bump-offs ay hindi naman siguro yung mga magpapakasal kundi yung management ng venue. Pero hindi dyan ang aking oopinyonan. I hope Sen. Chiz is not doing it for other reasons. I do not doubt his love for Heart. Pero yung timing eh malapit sa taong 2016, election year. And Sen. Chiz is not hiding his ambitions for higher office.
Kasal at Politika, historically dont mix. Do you remember Roxas-Sanchez Wedding na ginawa sometime in the last quarter of 2009. Mar Roxas then was preparing to be a Presidential Candidate. Then Cory Aquino died. A statement from Kris Aquino in the funeral eulogy started a cry for the only son to run for President. Roxas ended up stepping down as a Vice Presidential candidate. Ultimately ending up being defeated by the third come second in the survey in the last days of campaign, who is now the Vice President Jejomar Binay. Sana lang di mangyari kay Chiz. Thats all.
