During host-talent manager Boy Abunda’s contract signing at ABS-CBN, he was asked about his former co-host and friend Kris Aquino, who took a break from show business to focus on improving her health.
“I do (miss her) but how do you miss someone you talk to everyday?” he replied with a laugh.
When asked if he misses working with the Queen of All Media, the King of Talk said yes.
“Oo naman. You know, we don’t plan. Halimbawa, if you asked me, when will you work together again? I don’t know. It could be tomorrow, it could be two weeks from now, it could be a year from now but we talk every day.”
Saying that Kris is on her wellness break, Boy said that he likes her realization, “Gusto ko lamang ‘yung kanyang realization na hindi pwedeng lahat trabaho because we can be more effective in what we do when we give ourselves time to look, to view what we do… You have to have points where you can relax so that you can have a fresher view of yourself, of what you do.”
He then recalled learning that lesson when he was hospitalized two years ago. “That was one of the most horrifying experiences I had in my life. It was not life-threatening but painful. Doon mo marerealize,” said Boy.
“I realized, I mean looking back now, na kahit gustuhin mo, ‘pag hindi kaya ng iyon katawan… So I think, the fact Kris has taken control of herself, accepted the fact that not everything is okay with her BP, for example, is an excellent move towards identifying ito importante, ito gagawin ko,” he said, adding that Kris will not totally disappear in showbiz. He added Kris still has a lot of endorsements and is very active on social media. “I can’t imagine showbiz without Kris Aquino,” he remarked.
Boy also gave advice on taking care of one’s health. “Kailangan pangalagaan mo ang iyong kalusugan para magawa mo ang mga bagay na nagpapasaya sa’yo. Ang mga bagay na kailangan mong gawin. Ang mga bagay that you’re passionate about. Kasi, kung hindi ka malusog, paano mo magagawa? And sometimes, it takes a long while, it takes a journey for you to realize.”
