Kris Aquino on Baby James' earnings: 'Mas mayaman na actually ang anak namin'


091311-kris-main.jpgKris Aquino was aglow during a recent press conference of her latest beauty product endorsement and revealed that her current stress-free life is another reason why she looks beautiful. “Wala naman na akong pinoproblema in fairness sa buhay ko ngayon,” she beamed at the Olay Total Effects event held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Makati last September 8, Thursday.

Even when it comes to her family life, Kris revealed that she and ex-husband James Yap try to be good parents to their son Baby James, who is also an in-demand endorser like his parents. The Queen of Talk even joked that her son is giving her a run for her money. “Everything that our son has earned, malinis na malinis ang accounting. In fact both my managers, si Deo (Endrinal) at si Boy (Abunda) walang porsyentong nakukuha. Mas mayaman na actually ang anak namin,” she quipped. “Nakapundar na kami para sa kanya na properties, kumpleto na ang education niya all the way to masters kung gugustuhin niya, meron na rin siyang trust fund, pareho sila ni Josh.”

Kris also requested some press people to stop coming up with issues that might affect her civil relationship with James, such as how they go about Baby James’s earnings. “Huwag na kayo gumawa ng intriga between me and James kasi tapos na, eh kasi in all fairness we’re not close, kasi I don’t wanna be plastic and say we’re close. But we’re civil. And he’s enjoying a very good relationship with our son and si Bimby also hindi na napi-feel na may stress between her parents kaya happy siya. So siguro bilang magulang ‘yun naman talaga ang responsibilidad namin. So ‘yung pera na pinag-uusapan d’yan, it’s unfair to James. I think and in all fairness pumipirma siya sa lahat ng kontrata for Bimby sa dami ng endorsements na ‘yon at nakita naman niya talaga at ipinapakita ko sa kanya kung ano ‘yung meron na si Bimby.”

Kris clarified though that she sees to it that the priority is her son’s education and not showbiz. “He has a long-term contract. Ang mga kontrata niya hanggang 2013. He’s in school right now and he’s doing very well. Ang trabaho niya is only during weekends and we space it in a month; one TVC or at most, one TVC and one photo shoot.”

The actress-host also revealed that they have offers for Baby James to join children’s shows like Goin’ Bulilit but she prefers that Baby James has his own program. “Antagal na kaming niyayaya, ako ‘yung tumatanggi kasi gusto ko solo niya. Ha-ha-ha,” she said good-naturedly. “Stage mother talaga. Ang sinabi ko actually talaga was that my dream for him but it’s so scary, but super bagay sa kanya, Kids Say The Darndest Thing pero sa sitwasyon namin hindi pwede talaga baka kung ano-ano ang sabihin niya, pero bagay na bagay kasi kung ano ang napapanood n’yo sa commercial, ‘yung innate curiosity hindi mo pwedeng artehin ‘yon ganun talaga siya sa totoong buhay.
