Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) caught up with Kris Aquino during the anniversary celebration of Facial Care held last night, September 28, at Ayala Museum.

 

She thanked all the viewers of Kapamilya: Deal or No Deal for sticking with the show despite the change in timeslot. In addition, she mentioned that a big surprise awaits the viewers.

 

"Maglalaro ako," Kris said excitedly.

 

She further detailed her morning show partner Boy Abunda will be the one hosting the special episode.

 

"Tingnan na lang natin kung ano mangyayari kung ako na ang maglalaro," Kris added. "Ang ambisyon ko lang ay one million," she joked.

 

The show can give as much as three million pesos, why is she only aiming for one million?

 

"Every time kasi na magdasal ako, in-exceed ni God yung mga expectations ko," Kris answered.

 

Aside from her game show, a drama mini-series is in the works for the mother of two.

 

"I'll be working with the queen, Tita Susan Roces. Makakapiling niyo kami, once a week po. Sa primetime po," the TV host-actress said.

 

Kris shared that the Kapamilya network has plans of reprising the great movies of Susan Roces, and one of them will be Celso Ad Castillo's 1974 film Patayin Mo sa Sindak si Barbara.

 

"Napaka-espesyal kasi si Tita Susan will be there playing my mother," she happily said.

 

She added, "I didn't make a movie this year. So, this is the closest that I can come. Parang napakalaki lang talagang biyaya na si Tita Susan ang katrabaho ko."

 

After four years, the Kapamilya Deal or No Deal host will make a comeback to primetime TV drama. Her last TV series was Hiram.
