Beauty queen is Aquino's new apple of the eye?

President Benigno Aquino III's love life is back in the spotlight, as rumors swirl that he is dating another celebrity.

The bachelor president reportedly went out on a dinner date with beauty queen-turned-actress Bianca Manalo.

Manalo for her part admitted that she has seen Aquino, even as she noted that the President is not pursuing her.

"Na-meet ko po si Mr. President (I've met Mr. President)," Manalo said in an interview aired on ABS-CBN's "The Buzz" Sunday.

"Wala naman pong ligawan but nakipag-dinner po kami with him (No courtship happened but I had dinner with him)," she said.

The actress, model and TV host added that her sister was with her when she met Aquino.

This is not the first time that Aquino is reported to be dating a celebrity, even as he consistently urged the media to respect his private life.

Last year, Aquino was rumored to have been in a relationship with Korean TV personality Grace Lee.

The President had also admitted dating socialite and celebrity stylist Liz Uy, her sister Kris's friend, in 2010.

During his campaign for the presidency and his early days in Malacanang, Aquino dated Valenzuela City Councilor Shalani Soledad.

Aquino had also previously dated broadcasters Bernadette Sembrano and Korina Sanchez.

The latter is now married to Aquino's fellow Liberal Party stalwart and Interior and Local Government Sec. Mar Roxas.
