MANILA, Philippines - The helicopter crash scene involving the character of host-actress Kris Aquino in the Thursday episode of the primetime soap "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" saddened the widow of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo.
Maria Leonor "Leni" Robredo remembered her husband, who died in a plane crash last year, in the said episode.
"KKI chopper crash scene touches a very raw nerve :-(," she said in a Twitter post.
On Thursday's episode of "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw," Roxanne (played by Aquino) went missing after the helicopter carrying her and her sister Ruth (Anne Curtis) crashed into the sea.
Roxanne was set to seek treatment in China as she suffers from cancer.
After reading Leni's "tweet," Aquino replied and said sorry.
"@lenirobredo attorney Leni, I was just saying that I hoped u weren't watching tonight. Sorry," the host-actress wrote.
Leni then shared that she and her youngest daughter Jillian watched the "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" episode yesterday.
"@krisaquino214 was planning sana to skip it tonight but can't help myself...jillian covered her face with a pillow the entire time," she wrote.
Leni's eldest daughter Aika, for her part, asked Aquino if her character will be able to survive the plane crash.
Meanwhile, Aquino hinted that she will continue to be part of the hit series.
"I don't want to be a spoiler, but FYI I'm taping #KailanganKoyIkaw tomorrow. Call time is after I attend Bimb's class presentation at 8 AM," she wrote.
