The Queen of All-Media, Kris Aquino is set to have her television comeback via Love Life with Kris on TV 5, on Saturday, August 15, from 5-6 pm.
After a long hiatus and shunning away from the public’s eye, where she stayed in a resort in Puerto Galera, Mindoro, the 49-year-old single mom-host-actress-and entrepreneur is perhaps a more mature and a wiser individual in tackling life’s journey.
In an interview with the selected press, her response to a question that pertains to her love life, “Habang nabubuhay, huwag mawalan ng pag-asa. ‘Yun lang ang sagot ko (and laughs her heart out).”
To the surprise of many, Aquino also shares what her new belief system is all about. The question was about her former husband’s failed relationship with an Italian woman.
“To something that no longer involves me, I should never comment about it. It’s part of my past, and it should remain in my past.”
In the course of the interview, she still wants to work with Willie Revillame. She also declares that she and Boy Abunda [still] loves each other. Lastly, in the not-too-distant future, she dreams of dwelling in a home by the lake or owning a beach resort.
In her upcoming show, she is the Creative Head.
“I’m a fan of Tyler Perry. So, I’ve been watching ‘The Haves and the Have- Nots’ because it was that show of Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), when it started, medyo tagilid… and then, Tyler came in. It’s now, if I’m not mistaken, on its seventh season. Nakita ko ‘yung credits, it says executive produced, created, written, and directed by Tyler Perry.
“So, sabi ko, sige, tanggalin na natin ‘yung executive producer. Hindi ko ‘yan pinapangarap dahil mababaliw lang ako. Pero gusto ko ‘yung ‘created by, written, and hosted by Kris Aquino’.”

Though I have not worked with late veteran and multi-awarded actor-filmmaker Eddie Garcia, I still admire his passion and dedication for his craft. Perhaps the closest encounter I had with him was when we covered the launch of one of his latest films with Globe Studios, Hintayan ng Langit in November last year.
I began to like him as an actor when he played comic roles in the sex-comedy flicks May Lamok sa Loob ng Kulambo and May Daga sa Labas ng Lungga (1984). The most memorable film that I enjoyed about him the film Erpat Kong Forgets (also in 1984), written by Jose Carreon and directed by Erastheo Navoa.
In the said film, Garcia was the father of Aga Muhlach‘s character as Ariel who fell in love with Janice de Belen‘s Josephine (the sister) of the Carmi Martin‘s role. He’s undeniably great in drama, comedy, and action. Whether he’s the protagonist and the antagonist, he is effective in both.
Apart from Hintayin Kita sa Langit, his two other latest award-winning films Rainbow Sunset and ML (Martial Law) were testaments of how exemplary he was. He was named 42nd Gawad Urian best actor for the latter film, given by the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino (the Filipino Film Critics).
The cause of his death may not be something that the TV industry can take pride in. He met his fatal accident on the set of a taping for a series. He breathed his last breath on June 20, almost two weeks of fighting to survive. What is admirable about Garcia, he died working for his passion and never faltered on his commitment.
Rest in peace Eduardo Verchez Garcia (Born on 2 May 1929 – Died on 20 June 2019).
On Thursday, May 31, at the Viva Films’ headquarters in Ortigas Center, the five feet and seven-inch tall Miss International 2016, Kylie Fausto Verzosa was recently introduced as the new female face of Thai Royale Spa.
Verzosa was already eyed by the owners to be the next face of the brand even right after the beauty queen was crowned Miss International. It took them quite a while to wait, but finally she made her commitment to endorse this massage business that was started by the husband-and-wife entrepreneurs.
According to the sixth Filipina who went home with the Miss International crown, “It ibecause of their philosophy of giving good service to other people that made me convince to accept the offer.”
Like anyone else, the Baguio beauty-turned-actress and now a Viva talent; she believes that frequent visits to Spa do create both mental and physical health benefits. Based on studies getting regular massage in spas like Thai Royale Spa—directly correlates with better quality sleep, fewer sick days, reduced absenteeism from work and fewer hospitalizations.
Today, the massage business has grown to 70 branches and still counting. It is a proud member of Wellness Organization Worldwide (WOW) and one of the few that is certified by The Union of Thai Traditional Medicine Society (International Body Work Training Center) in Bangkok, Thailand.
It offers a variety of massage services and body treatments. Clients are treated to a luxurious massage at an affordable rate and with great ambiance at the same time.
