The consume-it-now-while-it-lasts scandal, involving new-generation Machete Aljur Abrenica, ex-wife Kylie Padilla, and young actress AJ Raval, is a source of amusement to those who are bored in the house and fretful of the pandemic.
As spectators of this scandal, we just can’t get enough of the dirty linens being washed in public and the coming soon secrets that will be outed.
This bizarre love triangle offers more titillation with the allegation of Abrenica written in a public Facebook post that it was Padilla, who first succumbed to one of the seven deadly sins and broke the sixth of the Ten Commandments.
With this profession, observers opine that it’s high time for the man of the moment to come squeaky clean with his version of the truth by way of another revelation, the identity of the “love interest” of Padilla.
Some even suggest that Abrenica brings the matter of the other party in a boxing match, slug it out mano y mano, and may the best man, win.
As far as the still Mrs. Abrenica is concerned, several agree that she must put to a stop all the cryptic and mysterious social media posts that she employs as her means to retaliate.
What she must do now, especially from the standpoint of those whose morals are unadulterated, is to gather evidence that she can present to a legal counsel of her choice, so that her maligned reputation gets its vindication at the proper venue, not on social media but in court.
Her emotional and mental health, as well as the welfare of her two sons, are also premium concerns and that by all means, must be protected.
We all know that the divorce bill, a dream and a wish that Padilla’s heart makes, is just like the equality bills for the members of the pink community. Both bills will not become laws in this lifetime.
Padilla has a certain republic act that may offer salvation from what is next to happen. What was written on her social media, for sure, is just the tip of the iceberg.
Abrenica obviously knows the art of marital war that is why the possibility of sacred secrets being made for public consumption is not moot. This probability has serious consequences and implications for Padilla being a woman and a mother.
When a relationship goes sour then kaput, we all know that both parties are accountable to its demise. No one has the bigger slice or share of the guilt, the pain inflicted, and the sin committed.
The third angle to this much-talked-about love triangle is AJ Raval. Recently, she aired an apology to those she did not intend to hurt because of her decision to repost Aljur’s veracity of the matter.
Her admission of personal growth and earning a lesson from what happened does not seem to dampen her closeness with Abrenica.
If the statement of Abrenica was his manner of appeasing the parents of Raval about what they have, and that their unconditional love for their daughter is the reason for them to look the other way and not mind the discomfort caused by the intoxicating association that Raval and Abrenica share, the reality remains, Abrenica is still legally married to Padilla.
The three are now consistent trending topics in the woke universe that is Twitter and open discussions about their modern-day love story are aplenty on other social media platforms.
Thus I cannot help but wonder, what happens now and next? An Abrenica tell-all in an online interview where we witness the greatest performance of his life?
With him, his lady friend AJ Raval. The look of love in her eyes and they hold hands during the talk and on cue, a familiar ditty plays, “You And Me Against The World”.
And will Kylie Padilla become so devastatingly beautiful as her act of best revenge? Or she will dazzle us with more hurts and woes, milking the public’s sympathy in a lady of sorrow act?
Indeed, real-life drama is more riveting than what our drama anthologies and soap operas offer.
