Heart Evangelista And Senator Chiz Escudero Will Wed In BalesinThe owner of the exclusive, for-members-only resort Balesin Island Club, Robert Ongpin, confirmed that Heart Evangelista and Senator Chiz Escudero will get married there.
Robert issued the statement sent from Europe because the issue that another February 2015 wedding was bumped off because of Heart's and Chiz's wedding was gaining traction on social media.
A certain Ria Gamboa posted on August 31 that her friend's, believed to be TV personality Cesca Litton, wedding was bumped off because of a certain celebrity-politician who want their wedding to be in the island also.
Netizens immediately assumed that the wedding was of Heart's and Chiz's, who recently got engaged. This was denied by Heart and Chiz, who said they have yet to decide on the date and place of their wedding.
The senator even said that the issue was between Balesin and the other party.
Robert said he was the one who invited the high-profile couple to have their wedding in Balesin when they had dinner after Heart's and Chiz's Paris vacation. This was even before the couple announced their engagement.
Therefore, Robert was pleased when the couple called him a few weeks ago, informing him that they want to get married in Balesin. Robert said he is friends with Heart and Chiz.
"Balesin is one of their favorite places and they go there quite often with their families and friends."
After receiving the information from the couple, Robert reserved February 14 for them because his staff told him there was no event for that date. He asked his staff to block off the date.
Actually, Heart and Chiz want to get married in the Royal Villa, which is presently under construction and will be completed by October. They are also thinking about Toscana Village, Robert added.
If the weddings are not going to have guests of more than a thousand, Robert said the resort can accommodate more than one wedding at a time. This is even during the peak season.
"I have dictated this to my secretary from Europe because I think it is a serious matter in which innocent people are being unfairly criticized, and in order to settle the issue once and for all."
Many believe the other bride-to-be is Cesca because of her posts on her Instagram account. Cesca posted a photo of her and her fiance. She captioned this with: "I don't care where we get married. I just want you by my side for the rest of my life. I love you so much."
She also aired grievances on her Facebook account, saying that hard work, time and effort mean nothing when there are people with the right connections.
Cesca has yet to confirm whether it is Heart and Chiz she is referring to in her posts.
Incidentally, Heart and Cesca are both ex-girlfriends of actor Jericho Rosales, who recently got married to Kim Jones.
