Kris Aquino announced last Tuesday night, (May 18) on Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN) that she will give up hosting the late-night showbiz oriented talk show and The Buzz after her brother Sen. Noynoy Aquino’s proclamation as President of the Philippines on June 20. The Queen of All Media explained that taking her sisters’ advice, she has decided to leave these shows to avoid making comments that could be taken against his brother.
“Nung Sunday po bago sa The Buzz (May 16) napag-usapan po ng pamilya namin kung ano ang mga expectations of us, specifically me, pagkatapos po ni Noynoy na ma-proclaim nga sa June 2010,” she said on SNN. Kris clarified that the decision was hers and Noynoy did not impose on her. “Napagpasiyahan po namin for the duration of Noy’s presidency, magpapaalam po ako sa aking mga shows that can cause controversy for him. Ang ibig pong sabihin niyan iiwan ko po ang SNN on June 25, 2010 at ang last The Buzz (episode) ko po is June 27, 2010.”
She clarified though that she is not entirely leaving showbiz behind because she will still be seen on the teleserye Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, which will run until August. She added that she requested the management that after her mom, former president Cory Aquino’s, first death anniversary this August, she will go on a three-week vacation with her family. “Pero in September po naghahanda na po sila ng programang angkop at babagay po sa mga pagbabago ng buhay namin,” she added.
Kris also called for understanding for the need to make the sacrifice. She said that she needs to avoid making comments that can be misinterpreted. “…And kawawa naman po ang kapatid kong si Noynoy dahil nagpaka-taklesa ako, eh siya ang magiging tagasagot pa, eh opinyon ko naman ‘yon.”
She said that while she is giving up her main sources of income, she needs to prioritize her family. “So ngayon ayoko nang gumawa ng kasalanan para hindi ko pahirapan si Ate (Ballsy), si Pinky, si Noynoy, at si Viel.”
