Heart and Chiz : Puso at Keso – In Short “PuKe”

Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero? A love couple?

“Puso at Keso” – In short, PuKe!

Whether its in Tagalog or English, both are not really good words to hear. ….and it goes the same for what I have to say about the two.

They’re quite an odd couple. The age difference is very obvious. Probably the only common thing I see is that they are both seen as popular personalities infront of the camera, but each one has different “fans” because one is in politics and the other one is in showbiz.

But wait just a minute, isn’t it almost one and the same already as you could see celebrities going into politics (the latest of which is Aga Muhlach seeking for a congressional seat in the fourth district of Camarines Sur), and politicians selling themselves as if they are celebrities (we see a lot of them endorsing products and services, and some guesting on TV).

Chiz Escudero was even seen as a special guest co-host of Kris Aquino in her morning talk show Kris TV.

I guess its not debatable that Chiz is also after the media exposure he would get for accepting the roles of product endorser and co-host….and when he admitted on national TV that he and Heart Evangelista are seeing each other as a couple, I became doubtful this guy just doesn’t want some media exposure, he also wants to be the talk-of-the-town “chizmiz.”

True enough, many started talking about the revelation in mainstream media and even online. Showbiz and entertainment blogs, even politics and government critic blogs like Philippines Election Journal.

If you search for Chiz Escudero’s name in Google, among the top on the list of search results would be Chiz’ romantic involvement with Heart Evangelista.

Which led me to ask “Why now?” and “Why a sudden announcement when the election is already nearing?”

I didn’t even see or heard any pressure towards the direction of Chiz , or even Heart, that would make them announce their romantic link with each other. …or am I just out of the loop with regards to showbiz, but I’m pretty sure I’m a follower of politics. Honestly, I never saw any reason why they need to divulge this information if not intended to provoke “conversations” among the “madlang people”.

I would really say its too apparent that they just want to arouse some “kilig” factor among their showbiz and politics followers…..and also to get the interests of those that do not follow them.

For me, Chiz is a good talker and debates well, but sometimes it gets irritating when he sounds like he’s doing a campaign speech and seems to be “rhyming”. He would surely get some additional points here out of all these rumors, as his name once again becomes popular. We Filipinos are suckers for “name-recall” tactics or gimmicks. We easily fall for these cons or dramatic romantic effect which seems to downgrade our politicians like ordinary citizens who can fall in love, crack jokes on TV, laugh with the other showbiz personalities – all to make him look like he is a down-to-Earth guy who could be approachable and friendly.

Ahhh, it really sucks when people are blinded by popularity and fail to look into the credentials and accomplishments of our government leaders. They would have their fancy advertisements, rubbing shoulders with top celebrities, promising a lot for the people, and going down to the level of the common people smiling, shaking their hands, going into the markets or any other crowded establishments – just for their votes!

There was this Yehey Brewing Point Live chat that one blog talked about where they were able to ask Chiz about certain matters, but even I believe it ain’t substantial enough to convince me he has significant accomplishments, and the right mindset to continue working as one of our Senator.

So, do you agree that Chiz Escudero is just using this romantic connection with Heart Evangelista as a gimmick to increase his chances of winning in his run for a second term in 2013?

Will I be voting for him from what I hear in the news lately, and based from the “track record” he boasts of?

Something deep inside tells me I may have to look first into the other candidates before I decide to go back to him and consider him as one of my choices.

Let me know also what you think, guys!….and maybe you could persuade me to reconsider.

      It’s the best thing to do instead of just relying on the TV publicity stunts….but the most difficult as well for its very hard to get such information due to limited sources. Like its says’ Google mostly displays his connection with Heart Evangelist which is the least thing intellectual people need to know.

    Haha this article is funny. Well, politics is politics and love is love. I’ve heard from some chizmis that chiz is a chickboy. He has all the qualities din naman to lure girls in any ages (who wouldn’t like a guy who’s so eloquent in Tagalog and so passionate in defending his principles + may dating rin).

    Well, we never really know how it will work with Heart. Maybe Chiz is just finding true love or finding extra publicity in the coming election. But whatever it may be, if he ever wins, I just hope he will sticks with his words in serving the Filipino people.

    Politics and showbiz is always around. I thought Sen. Chiz is very private when it comes to his love life. Senator Chiz Escudero and Heart Evangelista are now officially on. His political and showbiz career will be the talk of the town, since election has been closely approaching.

    Is this be a smart move for his running as Independent for a Senate position?

    Maybe he would be using this latest revelation as sort of an edge or plus factor to humanize him………which he will need because he is running as an Independent candidate….But I’m pretty sure there are people behind him who would reveal themselves once he wins.

    This is just one of the downsides to our voting system, that whoever gets the most votes in the election wins (obviously). Sadly, these people win due to popularity rather than their credentials. Some get lucky and have a mixture of both (popularity and abilities) but I’m not one to name names of that one for my brain fails to be ‘not lazy’ as of the moment.

    To answer your question, however, it’s tricky.

    On one side we CAN say ‘yes’ in a sense that he’s being smart about this. Before the campaign period starts, he has this ample time to do that on air to a certain media outlet (in this case, ABS-CBN) and create a buzz that will hopefully last until May where the people can. And…’no’ in a sense that if it was ‘yes’…then why reveal now when there’s still a slightly long way until the campaign period (Feb12, 2013 to May 11, 2013)?

    Gonna say ‘no’ but…I just think it’s weird how they started dating each other after Heart dumped that other guy recently. (don’t look at me, I don’t follow our country’s showbiz track either).

    I love the play of words by the way. 😀

    I love politics! You’ll see different strategies likewise applicable in sales and marketing. You really have to sell yourself by all means, and how you market yourself will make a huge difference.

    If a lawyer working by him or herself in Fresno California tries to advertise
    to people searching, bankruptcy, personal injury, divorce,
    tax problems, business law, contract disputes, real estate law, workers compensation and trial law, the lawyer will go broke before anyone ever can write them
    a check. As a business owner, if organizational skills have eluded
    you, you may wonder if the transformation to a more organized office is even possible.
    Break down any scripts they use, so you
    understand exactly what is happening, and so that you can develop your own highly
    effective scripts for common sales situations (see below).
    A big part of communicating is the desire to LISTEN to employees’ questions, concerns, and suggestions.

    However, this is far from the truth as there are several other cheap options at
    your disposal that will make you look superb and at a cheaper cost.
    The obvious answer would be to donate them, but where is the final
    fate of these donated pieces of cheap clothing lie. There
    are several cloth brands that come with low end lines and as such,
    it is easy to find all manners of collection in these places.
    While the sizes are a little different, there are both small
