This July, Kris Aquino will go back to her roots via her upcoming talk show that is reminiscent of her previous morning talk-show, Today With Kris (1996-2001). “I’m excited,” she began. “Never ending ‘yung pagmi-meeting but it’s really exciting. I saw the set already, nakakatuwa kasi parang 15 years after Today With Kris, a lot of the elements that was in that show ti-nweak para magmukhang 2011. Pati ‘yung backdrop, eh. Ewan ko kung dapat ba ma-flatter ako o dapat ma-feel ko, ah matanda na pala ako.”
The Queen of Talk shared that she sometimes realized how long it has been since she hosted her previous morning talk show. “Kasi andaming nagsasabi sa akin, ‘I grew up watching that show.’ Tsaka ‘yung mga tao ngayon may mga trabaho na nasa college na nakalakihan na siguro nila kase ‘pag nasa bahay it started 11 in the morning.”
Just like her previous morning program, Kris is happy to host a new show (working title is Kris TV or KTV) that will cater not only to housewives but also to husbands. “Maganda ‘yung format kasi it’s everything na gustong mapanood ng mga kababaihan [at] marami rin palang house-husbands na nandoon because ang asawa are either OFWs or mga asawa nila ang nasa call-center at toka nila ang pagbabantay ng umaga.”
Kris added that she has realized that she prefers to do morning shows. “Gustong-gusto ko ang umaga pala. Masarap palang gumising nang maaga pala basta makatulog ka lang ng maaga masarap.”
On a more personal note, Kris was very careful with her statements when was asked about her love life. Members of the press inquired if there was a special someone who was making her happy nowadays. “Wala. Kung meron talaga if it happens in life again and ma-bless ako, sa show ko na po sasabihin sa July,” she answered.
Kris was also very cautious about her comments when it comes to her brother President Noynoy Aquino’s love life. “Ayoko talaga, takot ako,” she said. She recalled the instances when her comments about her brother’s romantic life have earned her criticisms and landing her in the headlines. “Wala akong take, we all just want his happiness kasi ‘di ba a happy president will be an inspired president.”
