Ai-Ai delas Alas: Kris Aquino not the reason why I left ABS-CBN
041715-aiai_main.jpgComedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas now only considers her “friendship” Kris Aquino as “a former friend and former roommate.”

This statement was made by Ai-Ai during the press conference organized for her by GMA following her contract signing with the network.


“Nakakaloka ‘yang tanong mo na iyan! Ano ‘yung gusto mong isagot ko, oo… hindi, joke lang!” she quipped. "Gusto kong happy lang, Trabaho lang ‘to, so let's all move on."

But then Ai-Ai was quick to remind people that they had patched things up “’Yun na ‘yon, nagkabati na kami.”

However, Ai-Ai was honest enough to admit that they weren’t able to bring back their former closeness.

“Siyempre, iba na ngayon. Dahil unang-una, hindi na kami roommates, magkapitbahay na lang kami. Kasi nandito na ako [sa GMA], nandoon pa siya [sa ABS-CBN],” the Comedy Queen explained.

“Ganun naman ‘yun eh. Hindi naman lahat ng tao ano, ‘di ba? Minsan kasi, meron na tayong kanya-kanyang priorities. Ako kasi, priority ko to be happy, ayoko na yung may mga may kaaway, ayoko na yung may mga negativity,” she added.

Does she still consider Kris as a friend? “A friend… hindi nasagot!” she answered laughing, then added, “Siguro ano na lang… a former friend and a former roommate.”

Meanwhile, Ai-Ai maintained that all is well between her dear friend and manager Boy Abunda despite the latter’s known closeness with the Queen of All Media.

“Hindi naman namin pinag-uusapan ‘yon. Ang pinag-uusapan lang namin, career ko and ‘yung friendship namin ni Ama… personal, hindi,” said Ai-Ai.

In fact, according to Ai-Ai, it was the King of Talk who facilitated her transfer to the other network.

“Kasi si Boy naman, may relasyon kaming… ama, mag-ama kami. Kumbaga, bilang friendship… para kaming magkamag-anak. Ang sabi lang niya sa akin, ‘O, eto na ‘yan, pasalamat tayo…’” Ai-Ai said.

If anything, Ai-Ai stressed that, even during her rift with Kris, Boy never chose any side nor did he leave her alone.

“And, of course, siyempre magpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon na hindi Niya ako pinapabayaan… never talaga. Kumbaga, blind faith ‘to, kung saan Niya ako dalhin… siguro dito Niya ako dinala kaya pagbubutihan ko.

“At bukod dun, ayoko na nga ‘yung meron akong iniisip na hindi maganda sa kapwa. Kasi hindi maganda ‘yon. Maganda ‘yung masaya lang tayo lahat. Pagkatapos, wala akong naaagrabyado, I think lahat magiging positive,” she ended.

The veteran comedienne has been a Kapamilya for 16 years. Her last show was the television remake of Dyesebel starring Anne Curtis.
