MANILA, Mar 3 (Mabuhay) – After the controversies surrounding her split from husband James Yap last year, Kris Aquino was happy to say that their annulment case is going very well.

“Bawal pag-usapan eyong nilalaman ng case kasi meron kaming gag order. Pero we’re at liberty to say na nagkaroon na kami ng malinaw at maayos na settlement. Kasi bago pa eyon humantong sa trial, hinihingi eyon ng judge na lahat ng properties ninyo mahati na as amicably as possible. Wala naman naging problema,” Aquino told reporters in an interview last week.

Now that the issue regarding the division of their property is out of the way, Aquino believed that it’s only a matter of time before she and Yap will both be free to love again.

“Wala pa, hinihintay pa [eyong resulta ng case], but coming very soon. Kasi lahat ng bagay na ano, pinansyal naayos na. Okay na kami. May mga hearing kami na parating. Hopefully by the middle of the year tapos na. So hopefully mga 3 to 4 months [eyong hihintayin namin],” she said.

But what’s amazing is that the two of them have become good friends again. Yap even consulted Aquino about his rented condo at the Fort.

“Hard to believe that in 10 months we reached the point that my opinion matters again with him. To those who thought friendship was impossible [between an ex-married couple], simple answer because of Bimby everything is possible,” she said in her previous tweets.

Bimby, or James Jr., is their 3-year-old son.

She also revealed that she’s even willing to double date with Yap. She said Yap has already found a constant date, while she’s still on the lookout for a potential partner.

“Friends na kami. Handa na nga siyang maki-double date sa akin. Ano pa, sabi ko, ëIkaw meron ka ng ka-date ako wala pa. Hanapan mo ako,” she said.

She refused to reveal the identity of Yap’s date for fear that it might ruin their friendship.

“Tanungin ninyo si Bimby. Si Bimby ang sasagot kasi kapag ako ang sumagot aawayin ako ni James. Kapag si Bimby nagsabi edi niya ako pwedeng awayin,” she said. (MNS)
