While she admittedly went through a setback in her showbiz career, Kris Aquino maintained that it spurred her to widen her tastes in Philippine television.
The Queen of All Media candidly revealed that she is now familiar with a lot of GMA-7 shows; whereas before she only knew the ones being aired on ABS-CBN—her home network for 20 years.
“It also opened my eyes. Kasi dati eto [ABS-CBN] lang pinapanood ko. Hindi ko alam there is a world beyond that.
“So, ngayon kilala ko na ang mga Sang’gre! Hahaha! Nakilala ko sila. Ngayon marunong na ako magsplit screen.”
Kris was referring to the Sang’gres from the GMA-7 primetime telefantasya Encantadia topbilled by Glaiza de Castro, Kylie Padilla, Gabbi Garcia, and Sanya Lopez.
The Queen of All Media also admitted to switching between ABS-CBN and GMA-7 whenever her favorite shows are being aired at the same time.
“Fan ako ng Alyas Robinhood [starring Dingdong Dantes]. Pinanonood ko talaga.
“I’m a switcher.
“Kasi JaDine [James Reid and Nadine Lustre fan] ako, so pagkatapos ng Till I Met You dun ako sa Alyas Robinhood.
“So yun, lumawak ang mundo ko. Kasi for so long, yun [ABS-CBN] lang, e.”
Kris further proved her know-how by listing all the GMA-7 shows that she has been watching lately.
“Kung dati ang memorize ko yung sa amin lang, ngayon alam ko na. Kilala ko na si Karelasyon [at] #Like… Napanood ko lahat yun.”
Kris added that she enjoys comparing the news coverage of ABS-CBN, GMA-7 and TV5.
“Pati sa news, alam na alam ko, ‘Ay, tapatan sila! Ay, bumitaw na yung isa! Ay, mas may shots ito!’ It’s fun.”
But when asked if she was able to catch up on TV5’s PBA games, Kris firmly said, “No! No!”
She refused to watch her ex-husband and star cager James Yap on PBA.
Kris explained, “Let’s be honest. Wala pa ako sa ganung level. Baka next year.”
As it is, Kris is dismayed over the fact that her son Bimby found out about James's baby with girlfriend Michela Cazzola through Facebook.
