Kris Aquino reveals potential int’l projects
It hasn’t been entirely smooth sailing for Kris Aquino this year: the Queen of All Media opened up last October on financial struggles and being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.
In the midst of those challenges, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Aquino shared this morning, Nov. 7, opportunities that have been offered to her, including a “unique type of series.”
Her post included a slide show of pictures showing Aquino signing a deal and working on a shoot.

Whatever later may bring, please allow me to be grateful for yesterday & last night. My American agent sent me the script for a multi ethnicity production BUT this time for a unique type of series (i’ll know later if the role is still open because i didn’t see the email asking for me to submit my script reading by October 29). Just to be asked to do an audition to be a recurring character for a girl who hasn’t been on Philippine TV for more than 2 years & who binge watches US series as her favorite form of relaxation is SURREAL. In a world no longer required to be patient, 2 big Filipino conglomerates made me feel I WAS WORTH THE WAIT. I am privileged to work with people who treat me as their own, because they value me as FAMILY. Please don’t mistake this for “hugot sa love life” – it’s only ironic YET heartwarming that my brand partnerships are proving to me there are unexpected things and people meant for me because they are ready and excited for a long term consistent & committed RELATIONSHIP. it’s how multifaceted my life is- i did back to back shoots, it fascinated me that i wore a golden Carolina Herrera lace creation at 5 PM & by 9 PM i was wearing a dress i had an actual say in choice of colors (obviously because of the predominance of pink) and the silhouette (i love this semi cowl neckline plus i insisted on the midi length); it’s the realization of a wish that dresses made for me by my favorite Filipino designers & some inspired by my all black pre-shoot “capsule” wardrobe are now the inspiration for pieces available for all of you at great value for money price points this Christmas season. May i just THANK ALL OF YOU AGAIN? None of these opportunities would be here for me NOW had it not been for your unwavering support and for being my prayer warriors. … i am super GRATEFUL to have you traveling this journey with my sons & me… thank you for the inspiration to say w/ no regrets, THANK YOU, NEXT.
“My American agent sent me the script for a multi-ethnicity production but this time for a unique type of series,” Aquino revealed. She mentioned that she wasn’t sure if the role was still open because she overlooked the email, which said that the script reading was last Oct. 29.
Still, she remains grateful for the opportunity. “Just to be asked to do an audition to be a recurring character for a girl who hasn’t been on Philippine TV for more than 2 years and who binge watches US series as her favorite form of relaxation is surreal.”
When artist manager Philip Rojas, who works with her former manager Boy Abunda, replied with heart emoji to her post, Aquino excitedly replied: “Please tell Boy when he finds out who is producing the series sabay kaming tatalon sa pagkakilig (we will both jump in joy from giddiness).”
“The very fact this huge company was aware of my existence, pati si Boy ma-i-impress (even Boy will be impressed). Miss all of you.”
She also shared that she will be working with “2 big Filipino conglomerates” for a brand partnership. “I am privileged to work with people who treat me as their own, because they value me as family,” she said.
In the comments section, Aquino revealed to a netizen (@gendenemeeenn) that she will be meeting tonight with people from “2 ASEAN countries.” She was vague on the details of the project, except that they were interested in co-producing content with Aquino’s sole proprietorship KCA Productions (KCAP).
“If the deal pushes through, I can share with you why it’s so meaningful because my mom and dad will be so proud that their bunso (youngest) has this opportunity to partner with a company so iconic to our family,” she said.
She thanked fans for their continued support by quoting Ariana Grande’s latest hit single, “thank u, next.” “I am super grateful to have you traveling this journey with my sons and me. Thank you for the inspiration to say with no regrets, thank you, next.” /ra
