Kris Aquino reveals reason behind canceled TV5 show, tests negative for COVID-19
Kris Aquino opened up on what has been “a scary month” for her family, including her and Bimby’s COVID-19 scare and the cancellation of her television comeback.
The Queen of All Media became active on Instagram again yesterday, Sept. 8, to shed light on the status of her supposed TV5 show, noting that she has been replaced.
“This is a life update post I wish I didn’t have to make, BUT it’s something I’m facing up to in order to truthfully move on,” Aquino stressed.
“My hoped for TV comeback isn’t happening, the producer chose somebody else he and his sales team felt was more viable,” she added.
In late July, Aquino teased fans with a one-minute video about the said show, initially titled “Love Life with Kris,” which would have been her first TV project four years after “Kris TV” on ABS-CBN ended.
“No sugarcoating from me, you’re getting the honest truth,” she emphasized.
‘Glass half full’
Aquino also disclosed to fans her and Bimby’s COVID-19 scare as four people who had regular contact with her and her son all tested positive for the novel coronavirus in the mid-August.
“[Three] of them have recovered, [one] is still battling this cruel virus. We all got a swab test August 15, Kuya Josh was thankfully in Tarlac during the time of exposure so he and his companions weren’t at risk,” Aquino explained.
“Bimb has asthma, I have my autoimmune conditions. Yet we both tested negative, even though we had sustained contact and are high risk individuals,” she added.
Aquino said that they isolated for two weeks and got another COVID-19 test, this time using the ECLIA method, to make sure that they were not just asymptomatic. The results both came back negative.
“In the big picture of life, we are still fortunate,” she noted.
“I would like to believe that I’m now a glass half full type of person — I no longer wish to focus on what’s not given, rather I am so very grateful for the blessings, and YES, our health is the most precious one,” she added.
Despite the canceled TV comeback, Aquino noted that she will “continue to have faith there will be more opportunities — all in God’s perfect timing.” /ra
