MANILA, Philippines - Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero said he will be attending the third State of the Nation Address of President "Benigno" Aquino III alone.

In an interview on "KrisTV" on Monday, Escudero was caught by surprise when the show's guest Batangas Governor Vilma Santos asked him if he will bring actress Heart Evangelista to the Batasan.

"Hindi po. Mag-isa lang po akong pupunta doon. Hindi din po ako dadaan doon sa red carpet, sa gilid gilid lang," Escudero said.

Last week, Escudero was once again caught having a "meeting" with Evangelista.

Asked of his reaction on the newest photo showing him and Evangelista, the senator replied: "Meeting, meeting. Wala pa. Kapag isang buwan at kalahati, eating. Tapos baka bago mag-August, malay mo."
