Some people just couldn’t help but be tickled with the latest rumor in the winning Pacman’s life. His reported love affair and romantic involvement with the aspiring actress named Krista Ranillo.
Beth Celis of the Inquirer, quoting people close to Manny Pacquiao, wrote last Friday, Nov. 13: “Not only does she [Krista] wipe his face and body during workouts, she also feeds him like a baby during mealtimes,” said the well-informed source.”
Not a few people saw the two of them in romantic Baguio City where Pacquiao trained for weeks.
Sources in the sports community now chorus “totoo talaga.” (yes, it’s true)
We can only say: yes it’s true. Manny Pacquiao and Krista Ranillo will be seen together in the forthcoming movie Wapakman, to be shown during the Metro Manila Film Festival 2009 😀
Who is Krista Ranillo and why are people suddenly curious about her?
Showbiz runs in her blood, being the daughter of 70s heartthrob Matt Ranillo III and the former Linda Tupaz. She is also the granddaughter of veteran actress Gloria Sevilla.
She’s posed sexily for the Philippines’ top men’s magazines FHM and Maxim.
She was a Dean’s Lister at the Ateneo De Manila University where she majored in Interdisciplinary Studies and graduated in 2007.
Anyhoo, Pacquiao’s historic match against Miguel Cotto certainly didn’t show any strains in the Pacquiao household. His wife Jinkee Pacquiao was seen cheering him on in the front row. ’twas also the first time when Jinkee was seen walking side-by-side with Manny as he entered his dressing room at the MGM Grand Arena, prior to the bout.
And somehow,Mrs. Pacquiao looked quite the looker in a pink cowl neck mini dress, matched by a bright pink Hermes bag (prices ranging from $7,000 to $50,000).
Ayaw patalo. Kibitzers say the bag Krista is carrying these days is a Chanel 😛
