There were two significant instances when Kris almost switched networks.
The first one was towards the end of 2013, when showbiz insiders reported that Kris was leaving ABS-CBN to transfer to either GMA-7 or TV5.
There were even rumors indicating that she was being offered to become TV5's president.
Another report stated that "no amount of pressure from anybody" would stop Kris from transferring to GMA-7.
These rumors intensified because of Kris's cryptic posts on Instagram, which were often quotes about change and decision-making.
However, all these speculations were disproved when Kris renewed her contract in January 2014. In an Instagram post, Kris clarified rumors about her transfer, saying that she never met with GMA executives. She admitted that she met with TV5 Chairman Manny Pangilinan twice.
However, she decided to remain as a Kapamilya.
The second instance was in 2016, when Kris decided not to renew her ABS-CBN contract in February of that year due to health reasons.
She went to the United States for a vacation and upon her return, the actress-TV host met again with Kapamilya executives. However, Kris was unable to make a television comeback.
Kris then met with APT Entertainment's executive Tony Tuviera, who eventually managed her career.
She was set to tape a talk show produced by TAPE, Inc. that would be aired on GMA-7. However, the supposed talk show did not push through.
It was even rumored that GMA-7 blocked Kris's entry to the network, which APT denied.
Kris eventually focused on her digital platform. In May 2018, Kris set foot again on ABS-CBN to do a Star Cinema movie titled I Love You, Hater, along with Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.
