But i told Ernan, there are 3 of us in the shot & i don’t want to test the patience level & fortitude of my sons- so for their sake, can we just go w/ grey?)

Last April, Kris said that she rejected the mayor’s (second) proposal because “I really realized na, parang, I think wrong timing. When he was already ready, I felt ang dami ko nang na-survive. At ang tagal din naman kitang hinintay.”
By Kris’s telling of their Rome tryst, Quezon City Mayor Herbert said to her, as he gave her the ring: “Ang tagal kong utang ito sa ‘yo. So, puwede bang makabawi ngayon?”
The actress accepted the ring, but decided to return it the next day. She explained why she turned down the second proposal from the same man she wanted to marry three years back.
Kris said: “I returned it the next day because I said that we will always have responsibilities that came before he and I met.”
“And as long as our children are not done yet with their studies, I don’t think we have the freedom to be able to choose happiness.”
According to Kris, was that she did not see the two of them being happy together in the end.
“But… the ‘but’ lang there is that I knew that we would end up not making each other happy sa long run…
“I really realized na, parang, I think wrong timing.
“When he was already ready, I felt ang dami ko nang na-survive. At ang tagal din naman kitang hinintay.”
Looking back to April 2014, Kris said that Herbert was the only one she considered taking a second shot at marriage with, after her marriage to professional basketball player James Yap ended in a separation.
