Kris recalls the advice the talent manager gave her when she was starting out in showbiz.
Kris Aquino and Herbert Bautista have been making headlines recently and showbiz columnist Lolit Solis posted her two cents about the two personalities on Instagram on Friday, May 25.
"Hindi rin matapus-tapos ang istorya ng Herbert Bautista at Kris Aquino ha, Salve. Heto gawa na naman ng eksena Kris, attend siya ng birthday party Herbert, o di ba news na naman. Media savvy talaga ang Kris, eversince newsmaker, alam niya where and how to get media attention, at talaga naman news worthy siya," Lolit wrote.
She also commented about Kris inclusion in the upcoming Hollywood film "Crazy Rich Asians."
She said, "Naloka lang ako na sa dami ng balita dun sa Hollywood movie kung saan siya kasali, wala man lang siya sa trailer, to think na dinala niya buo niyang glam team sa Singapore. Sure ako abonado pa si Kris sa nagastos niya kesa sa tf niya sa movie, hah hah. Talagang character din si Tetay."
Lolit's post did not slip under Kris' radar. The actress-host took the time to reply to the columnist's comments about her.
First, the host-actress explained why she had to grab the oppoturnity to be part of "Crazy Rich Asians." "I have never hidden the fact na I have at most 5 minutes of screen time in Crazy Rich Asians. But it was once in a lifetime opportunity - so I grabbed it. Regarding the talent fee, I think it paid for my @michael5inco gown.... May strict non disclosure agreement ang Warner Brothers, but when people watch the movie they will understand bakit ako na excite," Kris wrote.
She also pointed out the reason why she spends on her wardrobe and glam team. "I remember you gave me such wise advice before - tinanong kita bakit okay maging maluho ang sasakyan ng artista & you said: Tetay, yun ang nakikita ng mga tao - kung gusto mo ng malaking TF, dapat hindi ka yung mukhang pwedeng tawaran. Never forgot those words. And put it into practice sa gastos sa glame team and wardrobe ko," she posted.
Kris also explained why she was present at Herbert's birthday celebration. "Dumaan ako kasi 'yung party ni mayor was 3 minutes away from my shooting set. Kung ininvite mo ko sa birthday mo - dumaan din sana ako and like last time, $ ang laman ng AMPAW na lucky envelope na gift ko," she posted.
