A year after she left TV, queen of all media Kris Aquino is ready to make her TV comeback via #TripNiKris, a travel, food, art and talk show that will reveal a different side of her. The two-hour special will air on SNBO on April 9 on GMA Network.
First-time producer and a good friend of Kris, Rhodora Pascual Morales announced the details of the show in a press conference at Club Filipino last March 16, 2017.
“Siyempre, pangarap ng lahat yan [na] magkaroon ng show with the Queen of All Media. Sabi ko, ‘kaya ko kaya yun?’ Kaya naman,” she said.
It all started when the two bumped into each other in a hotel restaurant in Makati last January. Tita Doray (Morales), as she is fondly called, asked Kris what her birthday plans were. The latter said that she was just planning an out-of-the-country trip with her sons Josh and Bimb.
“I asked ‘Meron ka bang special show?’ Sabi niya, ‘Tita, wala.’ [I said], Ba’t hindi tayo gumawa ng special show for your birthday?’ [She replied], ‘Are you kidding me?’ [to which I responded with], ‘No, I’m not kidding you.’ So sabi ko, ‘Let’s start!” the businesswoman shared.
According to her, Kris was tongue-tied for a while, expressed gratefulness and they got to work two days later.
She has known the actress-host since the latter was a kid, that’s why she is confident that #TripNiKris will have a positive turnout.
“I believe in her. I really love that girl… Bata pa siya, favourite ko [na] yun… Nakikita ko since nung baby siya hanggang lumaki [na] lovable naman talaga [siya]. Hinihintay ng lahat ‘to. Natutuwa [sa kanya] o hindi, gusto nila Makita si Kris,” she declared.
#TripNiKris airs this Sunday, April 9 on GMA Network after Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.
