Kris was then asked if she’s going to have a Kapamilya comeback soon because she hasn’t appeared on the television for quite a while.
The actress started off her answer with “Don’t expect anything”. She stated that she’s fully aware of the realities of life and she also knows that the network’s franchise is at stake.
“I also know that their franchise is at stake. I’m being so honest. Diretsahan na yan so why would they risk it by giving me a show?”
ABS-CBN‘s franchise will expire in 2020 and President Rodrigo Duterte has said strong statements about how he will block the renewal of the contract, which is still pending in the Congress.
Kris said that even though she has no issues with the president himself, she’s not exactly liked by his supporters, so she understands why the network doesn’t give her television appearances.
“Especially na kahit wala naman kaming issue ni presidente, hindi naman ako type ng supporters niya. So naiintindihan ko kung bakit wala.”
She mentioned that even if she doesn’t have much television exposure nowadays, people do see her every night as she is always online. The queen of all media stated that she has 53 brands supporting her, and she would like to thank them for she is also a businesswoman.
“Pero they see me every night if they want to. I’m online. And I have 53 brands supporting me. And I want to say thank you to them because I’m also a businesswoman.
Alam ko naman na hindi ako kukunin for this movie [if] i have not proven myself on digital because the goal of the character as they said “the digital empress” so they wanted that and I was able to give it to them because I’m the embodiment of that.
Nagawa ko dahil ako yung nauna. Dahil nga walang choice, kaylangan gawin. But I’d like to say that I was able to do it because of the businesses who supported me and I wanna say thank you to them.”
Kris also took the time to thank the fans for their continuous support for her and her online ventures.
“And I’d also like to thank yung mga [fans] kasi kung walang nagcli-click, wlang nagview-view, at walang nagshe-share, hindi ako naka-upo dito ngayon.”
I Love You, Hater is scheduled to open in cinemas on July 11.
