Showbiz moms Kristine Hermosa, Roxanne Guinoo and Katrina Halili will all be celebrating Christmas in Manila this year.
For Kapamilya news anchor Karen Davila, "I think, basta lang when you're with family, I think that's the best with the kids. Anywhere is fine."
Smiling, Kristine agreed, describing her Christmas this year as “normal, the same."
Katrina likewise said, "Dito lang, spend ko lang sa house with Katie [her daughter] kasi yung mommy ko, uwi na siya ng province."
She cited two reasons why she decided not to leave the city.
"Kasi mag-a-attend kami ng…wedding ni Marian [Rivera].
"‘Tapos, may New Year countdown rin kami sa GMA, so di na ako umuwi."
Roxanne, on the other hand, will be watching a concert.
She told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "We'll spend lang our time with the kids…so Christmas, siyempre, pang- family talaga.
“Yung lang yung mga simple plans namin ng husband ko."
The three moms concurred, no matter how simple they keep the celebration year after year, it's a memorable occasion each time.
Kristine added, "Of course when the family are all there, when the family is complete..."
For Katrina, "Best Christmas siyempre, kasama ko si Katie and family."
Meanwhile, Karen who was with her son David during the interview, mentioned she had gone skiing with Kim Atienza and his wife Fely, a good friend of the news anchor.
