Kris Aquino expressed gratitude for those who supported her latest movie, Feng Shui 2, as well as the movie of her son Bimby, The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin.
The TV host-actress made special mention of her ex-husband James Yap.
During the December 28 episode of The Buzz, Kris took this opportunity to thank James for attending the block screening of Praybeyt Benjamin 2, which is topbilled by Vice Ganda.
“Thank you to James and Tita Mic. Effort yun on their part. Kasi when I text James, I said, ‘Please bring Tita Mic kasi Bimb likes her.’ Um-effort na pumunta in a territory that’s not really yours,” said Kris, referring to James' girlfriend Michela Cazzola.
Kris described James as “supportive."
The ABS-CBN actress added that she feel content knowing that they she and her ex-husband are now on good terms with each other.
"Kapag ganun ang nararamdaman mo, supportive sa anak ko, okay na. Kampante ka na maganda ito. Move on.”
It will be recalled that James Yap postponed his flight to Negros in order to watch the block screening of Bimby's movie on Christmas Day.
President Noynoy Aquino, the uncle of Bimby, also took the time to watch his nephew's second MMFF movie.
