Ending days of speculation online that she would leave her home network, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino has finally decided to renew her contract with ABS-CBN.
This announcement was made by the A-Lister Kapamilya star through her Instagram account on January 6 by posting a photo of the ABS-CBN logo which held the caption of her explanation about what transpired and led her to her decision.
While she confirmed rumors that she indeed had talks with TV5's Manny Pangilinan in October and then last December 23, Kris clarified that she never had talks with GMA7.
"May I set the record straight? 1. I never met w/ any GMA officials but I am grateful to them for the generous coverage they gave My Little Bossings, primarily because of their longstanding partnership w/ Vic Sotto and the Eat Bulaga family," said the actress-producer.
Kris then reiterated that, despite speaking with TV5, her manager Deo Endrinal had also continued negotiating with the ABS-CBN bosses during the Christmas break.
"I have been with ABSCBN for 18 years & like any other family we've had our ups and downs and sometimes unavoidable 'tampuhan' -- but we remain FAMILY. It is with much joy that I share with you that we have renewed my ABS-CBN contract," she wrote.
The Kris TV host continued, "I am grateful to my ABS-CBN bosses, Sir Gabby [Lopez], Ma'am Charo [Santos-Concio] and Tita Cory [Vidanes] for the trust, value, and importance they have given me."
She then went on to thank her Kapamilya colleagues, her dear friend Boy Abunda and former ABS-CBN president Freddie M. Garcia.
Lastly, she thanked the fans who have supported her through the years.
"And the most important thank you is for all the Kapamilya viewers, thank you for watching me, enjoying me & making me part of your daily viewing. Because of your support I get to continue a job I love & I am also able to provide well for Kuya & Bimb... From my heart, MARAMING SALAMAT KAPAMILYA!!!" She ended.
Rumors of her speaking with other networks started last January 3 through her Instagram posts seemingly seeking for "guidance" while vacationing with her two sons in London.
Meanwhile, a lot of Kris' fans were visibly happy about the news that her post has now over 12,500 'likes' and 1,400 positive comments and counting as of this writing.
