Why is the TV comeback of Kris Aquino taking so long? APT big boss Tony Tuviera explained, "Right now kasi, hindi pa namin malaman kung paano siya ibabalik."

Will Kris Aquino have her own TV show soon?

It’s been almost five months since Kris was spotted having a meeting with APT Entertainment’s President and CEO Tony Tuviera and his son director Mike Tuviera.

What did they really talk about during that meeting?

In a roundtable interview with Mr. Tuviera recently, he revealed what he and his son discussed with the Queen of All Media.

He narrated, “[Kris] texted me, she wanted to sit down.

“I didn't know anything what we would talk about. Sinama ko lang yung anak ko, si Mike [Tuviera, director].

“We sat down. She said, 'I want to get into digital. I think the future really is digital.'

“'Tapos sabi niya, 'I want to be there first.' So, sabi namin, 'Okay.'

“Then, she said, 'It's about time that we start to own also what I'm doing.'

“Kasi, sa digital nga naman, siya 'yong ganun.

“Then, she said, I can help you with some of the sponsors. Ganun lang nagsimula.

“Yun lang, doon nagsimula.”

A month after that meeting, Kris hinted that she would start taping for a new project. For this reason, some people believed that Kris would have a TV show that would be produced by APT Entertainment.

In fact, many believed she would replace Calle Siete, which was about to end at that time. This show had the timeslot before Eat Bulaga!

Unfortunately, it did not happen. Instead, management decided to give the slot to
Trops, a daytime teleserye featuring Eat Bulaga!'s “That's My Bae” finalists.

According to APT's big boss, they really wanted to put Kris on that timeslot prior to
Eat Bulaga!

However, he said, “Kaya lang nag-aano kami na something new muna.

Right now kasi, hindi pa namin malaman kung paano siya ibabalik.

Paano kaya kung ibabalik siya? Kasi, a lot of people are really looking for her.”

Tuviera added that they did not want to give Kris a show with the same format as her previous programs.

Kaso baka mamaya, kung ibinalik mo siya sa the same thing that's showing before, ang hirap naman. Siguro iba naman,” he said.

He also stressed, “I'll be very honest, kasi baka magkamali. [Kung sakali] tatama sa akin at sa kanya, ang bigat naman nun.”

As of now, Tuviera said his group is still conceptualizing for the right kind of show for the TV comeback of the former ABS-CBN actress.


Mr. Tuviera clarified that there's still no concrete agreement for APT Entertainment to manage Kris's showbiz career.

As of now, the group's tie up with Kris is for her digital ventures only.

Actually, wala pa rin naman kaming pirmahan sa management.

Eventually, sabi namin, kung magkakasundo, that's the only time. But we should draw the line,” he ended.
