ACTRESS-television host Kris Aquino has put an end to suggestions that she could go back anytime to ABS-CBN to resume her career saying that her former network does not need her anymore.
“But ABS-CBN no longer wants me,” said Aquino in one of her reactions to her Instagram followers who suggested that she could resume her career in her previous home studio.
When Aquino temporarily bid show business goodbye in March, there was not a hint that she had any hard feeling for the Kapamilya network.
“Thank you Kapamilya! Our relationship started October 28, 1996 and will soon end this March 23, 2016. A total of 10,354 days working for ABS-CBN, my life’s most fulfilling professional journey because of your love, acceptance and loyalty,” said Aquino then on Instagram.
In September, Aquino finally bid her ABS-CBN family goodbye when she signed up with Tony Tuviera’s APT Productions.
Tuviera is also president of TAPE, Inc., producer of the longest-running noontime program “Eat Bulaga” on GMA 7.
The group also manages the careers of Marian Rivera and Maine Mendoza.
Reports said then that the Kapuso network is cooking up a morning show for Aquino that will rival “Magandang Buhay” on ABS-CBN.
Aquino was supposed to start working for her new project on GMA 7 in September but it was postponed.
But there were speculations that Aquino was not coming back to television soon after a powerful executive of GMA 7 reportedly denied her a morning time slot.
Last Nov. 11, Aquino was scheduled to have a one-on-one interview with President Rodrigo Duterte in Davao City.
But the President did not attend the planned interview in what could have been the television comeback for the sister of former President Benigno Aquino III.
Aquino described the cancelled Duterte interview as an “epic snub.”
