"I've always had the impression na pag ang artista makita natin maganda yung house, maganda 'yong gamit, alam nating lahat na nanggaling 'yong kita from this endorsement, from this show. Daily nakikita mo so you know where the money came from. So you don't begrudge that person for having that money," says Kris Aquino.

This September, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino opens her doors to YES! in a 44-page feature of her new luxurious residential condominium.

"This is really me. Gusto ko talaga ng makulay, happy, bright colors. Ayoko ng minimalist!" Kris says of her new space.

Kris occupies two adjacent units with total size 638-square-meters which are both under a trust for the benefit of her two sons, Joshua and Bimby. 

Her love for colors is evident in the bright color schemes of both units, whose color palettes are composed of reds, purples, and pinks.

Cynthia Almario, Kris's interior designer, describes the units as "glamorous and luxurious" and says, "Working with Kris was a breeze as she has a clear-cut and specific likes and dislikes about the look that she wanted for her units."

Many of Kris's possessions were inherited from her mom, the late Corazon Aquino, while others were from their Valle Verde II home, which she shared with estranged husband James Yap.

Her home is filled with various knick-knacks that make interesting centerpieces in the house—plush balls, topiaries, frog figurines, and golden Buddhas.

YES! features over 100 photos of every nook and cranny in Kris's home, and she says, "It was ingrained in me talaga na if you want to have a nice home and all, you work hard."

Every piece in her home is a testament to how hard she has worked, as she adds, "I've always had the impression na pag ang artista makita natin maganda yung house, maganda 'yong gamit, alam nating lahat na nanggaling 'yong kita from this endorsement, from this show. Daily nakikita mo so you know where the money came from. So you don't begrudge that person for having that money."

This month's issue of YES! magazine also gives you a sneak peek inside Kris's pink-studded room, Bimby's bedroom inspired by the animated film Toy Story, and Joshua's jeepney bed!

Also, Kris clarifies rumors linking her to Chiz Escudero, Diether Ocampo, and JunJun Binay, and answers every question that YES! throws her way.
