Yes. It’s official. Kris Aquino will not be seen on national TV anymore.
According to the reports of Julie Bonifacio on Philippine Entertainment Portal, Kris Aquino’s long-running morning show Kris TV will be replaced by a program entitled Magandang Buhay, to be hosted by Jolina Magdangal, Karla Estrada, and Melai Cantiveros.
Jolina, Karla, and Melai were contestants in the first season of the reality talent show Your Face Sounds Familiar. The three were also frequent guests of Kris’ talk show.
Recently, TV host and actress Kris Aquino shocked her fans when she expressed in her Instagram post that she will leave ABS-CBN to pursue a stress-free life away from showbiz.
In a series of posts, the “Queen of All Media” shared her farewell statement, thanking the Kapamilya network for their relationship.
“Thank you, Kapamilya. Our relationship as a family started October 28, 1996 and it will soon end this March 23, 2016. A total of 10,354 days working for ABS-CBN, my life’s most fulfilling professional journey because of your love, acceptance and loyalty,” Aquino said.
Meanwhile, Queen of All Media just returned to the Philippines from her three-week vacation in Hawaii.
“The 3 weeks made me start actively working on my physical health, and more importantly I had the time to be a 100% focused Mom,” she said in an Instagram post.
Kris added: “And this is just the beginning of a lifelong commitment of prioritizing my wellness because I still need to make many more memories w/ my 2 sons.”
Although Kris is no longer an ABS-CBN talent, the network still airs reruns of her morning show.
Of course, this doesn’t mean we’ve completely gotten rid of Kris. The 45-year-old said she will shoot commercials for two endorsements.
