Shalani Soledad, the Valenzuela councilor who became famous when she was “exposed” as the girlfriend of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III reportedly has a new boyfriend.
The new boyfriend is said to be older than her, a businessman of Chinese-Filipino racial stock. He belongs to a wealthy and highly respected family.
Soledad’s lovelife became extremely quiet shortly after their purported split with the President. Sources at Valenzuela says, the reason for the split is mainly political. Soledad reportedly asked that some of her friends be appointed to sensitive posts in government, which Noynoy refused.
Soledad is gunning for the Congressional seat of the first district of Valenzuela. However, some businessman of Valenzuela is asking her to try the Senate since the beautiful lady councilor continues to have high survey ratings nationwide.
2013 mid-term elections is usually kinder to politicians, especially new ones since the political atmosphere favors those who gun for the Senatorial positions.
Anyway, shortly after the split with Noynoy, Shalani was rumoured to have spent some time with Valenzuela mayor and then with co-host Willie Revillame. Many, however, does not believe the yarn spunned with Willie. Shalani is not Willie’s type, says an insider at TV5.
