In a span of 27 minutes, Kris Aquino was able to cover a wide variety of topics during in her recent guest appearance on a GMA-7 morning show.
The ABS-CBN actress was the guest of Marian Rivera in the 43rd episode of Yan ang Morning.
Marian often called Kris her "ninang" since the latter was one of the godmothers during the DongYan wedding in December 30, 2014.
This 2016, Marian is already a doting mother to Maria Letizia "Zia" Dantes, her baby with husband Dingdong Dantes.
In behind-the-scenes photos circulated in social media, it could be seen that Dingdong was on the set but he did not appear on the GMA show.

For seven weeks, Kris travelled to various destinations in the United States as she took a hiatus from show business.
When she came back, the "Philippines' Queen of Talk" appeared on the Kapuso show where she talked about her health and being a parent to her two sons Bimby and Joshua.
At one point, Kris almost took over the hosting job of Marian when she steered the conversation and kept on asking questions instead of being simply a guest.
Here are 5 memorable quotes of Kris Aquino on Yan ang Morning:
1. Kris Aquino misses doing interviews!
While talking about children, Kris asked Marian whose decision it was not to hire a nanny for baby Zia.
The Queen of all Media then paused before saying, "Ako talaga ang gumawa ng show. Pasensiya ka na, na-miss ko na mag-interview. Ako bigla ang nagtanong."
2. Kris tells Marian: Her son Bimby will wait for baby Zia.
Right at the start of the episode, Kris tells Marian about her seven-month-old baby: "Ang ganda ng anak mo. Hihintayin ni Bimb."
Kris later added, "Kung si Bimb at si Zia, eight years [ang age gap]. Pwede yun. Gusto ko ng magandang lahi."
It will be recalled that baby Zia was born on November 23, 2015.
Marian laughed before admitting, "Parang na-tense ako. Yung anak ko ang pinagusapan."
3. Kris is glad when those who impersonate her look beautiful.
Marian curiously asked the TV host-actress, "Okay lang ba sa iyo pag ginagaya ka?"
Kris answered candidly, "Depende. Pag maganda, happy ako.
"Kung may itsura yung nagi-spoof sa 'yo, why not di ba?"
She then pointed at Marian and said, "Kung kasing-ganda mo, okay lang sa akin."
4. Kris is updated in chismis--as early as her high school days!
Marian mentioned that a high school photo of Kris went viral, showing how Kris looked like with her hair teased as was fashionable during the 1980s.
The Yan ang Morning host also asked Kris to react to the high school yearbook writeup wherein she is said to be knowledgeable about gossip. "Lahat raw ng chismis alam mo," said Marian.
Kris agreed with this by saying with a smile, "Parang naman, oo. Chismosa lang talaga ang peg."
5. "Tumatanaw kami ng utang na loob."
Towards the end of the episode, Kris pointed out, "In this world, you don't find a lot of permanent friends.
"Minsan kakampi mo ngayon, bukas hindi mo na kakampi. I have to say this na kayo ni Dong, most especially Dong, super bait siya kay Noy [former President Noynoy Aquino who is Kris' brother].
"Tumatanaw kami ng utang na loob," promised Kris.
