Kris Aquino cuts short house tour
MANILA - Host-actress Kris Aquino decided not to show some parts of her new home on "Kris TV" after she was criticized by a number of people online for allegedly being insensitive to the plight of typhoon survivors.
In a voice-over during her episode on "Kris TV" on Tuesday, Aquino explained the reason behind her decision not to show some parts of her house.
Saying that she wants to "avoid negativity" this Christmas, the TV host shared that she asked her production manager to re-edit Tuesday's episode to remove some parts of her home tour.
"Maging ang comment ng user na ito [sa Instagram] ang kanyang reaction sa aking home tour, 'showing off what you have is not very humbling, especially when the rest of the country is struggling to even put food on their plate and people affected by typhoon lost everything they have. Just saying,'" she said, referring to one of her critics on the photo-sharing site.
"I replied to them (Instagram followers) and said, 'para walang issue, just called Jasmin, production manager of 'Kris TV,' re-edit kami ng episode tomorrow... No more second or third floor," she added.
Aquino also apologized to her fans for the sudden change in the "Kris TV" episode and thanked those who defended her from her critics.
"Thanks for defending me but I really don't want to have any nega before Christmas. Nagmamagandang-loob lang ako to share [my home] pero na-misinterpret pa, so wala na lang para walang gulo," she said.
She went on to explain why she initially wanted to show her home to her viewers on "Kris TV."
"I shared this exclusive home tour with all of you because your support and patronage of my shows, movies and products I endorse helped us build our home," she said.
Aquino began showing her new home on "Kris TV" on Monday.
"Kris TV" has also aired episodes showing the homes of other celebrities such as Bea Alonzo, Ai Ai delas Alas, Kim Chiu, Boy Abunda and many others.
