Kris Aquino bids goodbye to ABS-CBN

The Queen of All Media is officially out of ABS-CBN. This is what Kris Aquino shared on her three-part Instagram post earlier today.

'As much as I wanted to believe I was a pillar of the network, everybody is dispensable,' says Kris Aquino who had been with the Kapamilya Network for 20 years.

Her three-part Instagram post today is her first statement about her rumored network transfer. Though it was not explicitly mentioned that she's moving back to GMA-7, the actress-TV host revealed that she's going to be part of APT Entertainment, the production house behind Eat Bulaga, Calle Siete and Sunday PinaSaya - all of which are airing in the Kapuso Network.

Kris Aquino started her TV career in GMA-7's StarTalk before moving to ABS-CBN for two decades.

Part 1: I want to tell you our truth & I pray you'll understand... 20 years ago, I went back to ABS CBN after a year w/ GMA (Star Talk & a Viva produced afternoon talk show). It started w/ Today w/ Kris Aquino & ended w/ Kris Tv. We had a memorable, excellent run. ABS saw me through my worst & my best. I had the chance to be part of career defining shows like TWKA, The Buzz, Game KNB, Deal or No Deal, PGT etc & had iconic movies like Feng Shui & Sukob. We were set to renew our contract February 2016, it was a generous, less demanding agreement but at that time there was a threat to my life we needed to take seriously, I had to regain my health, and I needed time for my family & me. We didn't sign then, I went to Hawaii, came back to campaign, then left again. Our agreement was we'd talk when I got back. That is the risk of taking time for yourself- when you come back there's no guarantee that a space will be held for you. We spoke in July but there was no definite show & no assured time frame of my return on air. I perfectly understood- as much as I wanted to believe I was a pillar of the network, everybody is dispensable. And I say that with no bitterness- just HONESTY. So to all of you saying please don't leave- it wasn't a choice that was just mine to make. I take my share of the responsibility. And I say that w/ so much gratitude in my heart. ❤️

Part 3: My sons & I leave today for a little over a week- advanced making up on my part because I have an exceptionally full work calendar until Christmas. They had so much of me for 4 months- so we'll be adjusting... When we come back, the unit I'm renting from Tito Manolo & Tita Maritess Lopez in Rockwell will be ready (I believe that is proof enough that there is no bad blood between the owners of my former network & me.) This is the 1st & last I shall say about this chapter of my life. You deserved the true story & I gave you my truth, so that we may all move forward... So here's a shoutout of THANK YOU to the Kapamilya Network ABS-CBN for all that was, and here's a shoutout of THANK YOU to my new APT family for all that will be. And most of all my THANK YOU to all of you for allowing me to just be me. ❤️
