Kristina Bernadette Aquino y Cojuangco (born February 14, 1971), professionally known as Kris Aquino, is a Filipina television personality and actress who gained prominence from her talk shows, game shows, Horror movies, Massacre movies and numerous endorsements making her dubbed as The Philippines' Queen of All Media, alongside are The Queen of Gameshows, The Queen of Talk, The Queen of Reality Shows, The Queen of Horror Movies, The Massacre Queen and The Queen of Endorsements. She is the youngest daughter of former Philippine senator Benigno S. Aquino, Jr., and Corazon Cojuangco-Aquino, who served as the 11th President of the Philippines, and sister of Benigno S. Aquino, III, the 15th President of the Philippines.

Her first movie was Pido Dida: Sabay Tayo, which earned her the status of 'box office queen', as did her 2004 films Feng Shui and So... Happy Together. Her movie Sukob was the highest-grossing Filipino film of 2006.[1] She is also executive editor of her own bimonthly magazine called K! The Kris Aquino Magazine. In December 2009, Aquino showcased her own home collection called K Everyday. In partnership with ABS-CBN Licensing, K Everyday features cooking, kitchen, plastic, and stationery collections. Currently, she is a member of the ABS-CBN Broadcast Network.

Early life[edit]

Aquino was born in Quezon City, Philippines, to Corazon C. Aquino and Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. who was, at the time, a senator of the Ferdinand Marcos regime. The youngest of five children, her siblings are Maria Elena "Ballsy" Aquino-Cruz, Aurora Corazon "Pinky" Aquino-Abellada, incumbent Philippine President Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III, and Victoria Elisa "Viel" Aquino-Dee. She is the cousin of actress and equestrienne Mikee Cojuangco and the niece of Philippine Olympic Committee president Jose "Peping" Cojuangco, Jr.

In the 1978 parliamentary elections, where her father was a candidate, the seven-year-old Aquino wowed the crowds as a stand-in for her imprisoned father at campaign rallies. The young campaigner was featured on the front page of The New York Times and on the cover of Time Magazine. Aquino spent most of her elementary school days in the United States, where the Aquino family was in exile. When she was 12 years old, her father was assassinated on the tarmac of the Manila International Airport. Kris Aquino returned to the Philippines and was a precocious presence in rallies against the Marcos regime.

After the Philippine Revolution of 1986, which removed President Marcos from power, the teenage Aquino began guesting stints on television dramas and comedies, as well as talk shows. She made her film debut with actor-comedian Rene Requestas in Pido Dida, which was a blockbuster hit. Aquino had a commercially steady career and managed to score an acting nomination for The Fatima Buen Story. She starred in a film based on a true-to-life murder, the Vizconde massacre. Its financial success, and successive crime films of the same vein in which she starred, gained her the nickname "Massacre Queen" by newspaper critics.

Education[edit]

Aquino finished her elementary school education at the Poveda Learning Center in Mandaluyong City, high school at the Colegio San Agustin-Makati, where she was classmates with Pinky Webb and Karen Davila. She graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature.[citation needed]

Television[edit]

With her movie career slowing, Aquino shifted her sights to a television career as a talk show host and gossiper with the launching of Kris, produced by Viva Television on Channel 4 (at that time named PTV, it was transferred to GMA Network, which had a partnership with Viva, and after Viva's contract with PTV ended). It was on GMA Network's showbiz oriented talk show Startalk, which she co-hosted with Boy Abunda and Lolit Solis, that her hosting skills attracted attention.[citation needed]

After GMA and Viva dropped her, she went back to ABS-CBN, which offered her a contract, and launched Today with Kris Aquino. From January 2001 to May 2002, she hosted the talk show Morning Girls with Kris and Korina, alongside popular broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez, which was intended to last for only two weeks, but went on for 16 months. In 2007, she officially left The Buzz and Pilipinas, Game KNB? after giving birth to her second son, James. She was replaced by Edu Manzano on Pilipinas, Game KNB?. According to Aquino, she had to give up her hosting stint on the shows to devote more time to her live-in partners. She may not have wanted to return to The Buzz because she no longer wanted to work with former co-host Cristy Fermin.[2]

In the October 2008 issue of YES! Magazine, Aquino was considered the leading celebrity endorser, ranking number one among the 20 popular celebrity endorsers.[3]

Aquino hosted the Philippine franchise of Deal or No Deal, which is part of ABS-CBN's primetime lineup. It ended its first season on February 23, 2007. The second season of the game show started on June 11, 2007. On May 5, 2008, she appeared on the US version as part of a "Deal or No Deal around the world" event, during which host Howie Mandel and an American contestant were taken to an international location, and played the game in that country, with the local models and host assisting Mandel. Aquino also hosts Boy & Kris, a morning talk show that replaced Homeboy, together with Boy Abunda,[4] and Be Bench, a model search show together with Piolo Pascual.[5][6] Nestor Torre, a critic of the entertainment industry in the Philippines, posited that Aquino took a lot of risks when she chose to give up her two former shows. Torre pointed out that giving up The Buzz and Pilipinas, Game KNB? deprived her of the major exposure that those two popular shows afforded her. He also noted that it is much more difficult to successfully launch new shows than to resume hosting programs that are already popular.[7]

She hosted another TV franchise, Wheel of Fortune, which replaced Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal. She said in an interview[citation needed] that she was a huge fan of the US version and was thrilled to bring the show back to her country. (Wheel of Fortune had already had one 2001-02 run in the Philippines, which was hosted by Rustom Padilla and Victoria Wonderheim.)[citation needed] She hosted Showbiz News Ngayon during its newest season. In October 2008, after former The Buzz co-host Cristy Fermin was suspended by ABS-CBN, the Kapamilya network asked Aquino to once again host the top-rated showbiz-oriented talk show with Boy Abunda and Ruffa Gutierrez. After much controversy, Aquino hosted The Buzz again beginning on October 26, 2008.[citation needed]

She officially left Showbiz News Ngayon on June 25, 2010,[8] and The Buzz on June 27, 2010, after being an on-and-off main host of the show for 10 years. The reason she gave for leaving the show were that she would be spending time with her family, and she sought to prevent any issues while her brother Benigno Aquino III was in office as president of the Philippines.[9][10] Despite taking a leave for her family, she hosted ABS-CBN's new noontime variety show called Pilipinas Win Na Win, but left after two months at the decision of the management.

In late 2011, Aquino returned and again showcased her hosting skills in her new morning talk show titled Kris TV on ABS-CBN. On the first anniversary of the show, the management and Aquino invited Chiz Escudero as co-host and special guest.[citation needed]

Film[edit]

Aquino got her start in film with the help of Regal Films, one of the oldest film companies in the Philippines. Her early film appearances include the Pido Dida series, in which she was paired with comedian Rene Requiestas and earned her first box office queen award. She later shifted into other roles, notably in massacre films such as Vizconde Massacre, Myrna Diones Story, Elsa Castillo-Ang Katotohanan, and Humanda Ka Mayor.

She first drew praise for her acting in The Fatima Buen Story. She eventually won a supporting actress award for the film Mano Po (2002 Regal Films), in which she portrayed a weak-willed and submissive scion of a wealthy Filipino-Chinese clan. Her most commercially successful movies in her career include Feng Shui, a Star Cinema production that featured Chinese influences and omen. Feng Shui, which was made during the wave of "Asian-style horror" flicks that spread throughout the continent after 2002's The Ring, made P137 million. It was the highest grossing Filipino movie of 2004 (and the second most successful movie overall that year, next to Spider-Man 2 which earned more than P225 million). In 2006, Sukob, another horror thriller, became the highest grossing Filipino film of all time surpassing Ang Tanging Ina, Anak, and Feng Shui.

Aquino had her share of box office bombs. Her 2003 movie with actor Robin Padilla, You and Me Against the World, flopped at the box office from the start. Made for P25,000,000 and released immediately after Aquino won acting awards (for her performance in 2002's Mano Po), You and Me Against the World made only P4,389,005. The film's producers lost an estimated P23,000,000, even accounting for home videos. Because You and Me Against the World failed to attract an audience, several movie theaters pulled the film out and replaced it with another film. Some theaters reportedly did this on the movie's second day of play. In June 2012, Kimmy Dora Part 2 was finally showing in all theaters nationwide in the Philippines, produced by Star Cinema of ABS-CBN and directed by Bb. Joyce Bernal. Kris portrayed a special role in the movie sequence. Some parts of the movie were filmed in Seoul, South Korea.

Personal life[edit]

Aquino had a live-in relationship with married actor Phillip Salvador with whom she has a son named Joshua. In 2003 she dated comedian Joey Marquez.[11]

Aquino was married to Philippine Basketball Association professional player James Yap in a civil marriage ceremony on July 10, 2005. The following year, she announced on The Buzz that she was pregnant.[12] In April 2007, Aquino gave birth to her first son by Yap, James Carlos "Bimby" Aquino Yap, Jr., in Makati City.[13] In 2006, a former medical clinic receptionist stated that James Yap had an extra-marital affair with her.[14]

Aquino suffered a miscarriage with a collapsed gestational sac and blighted ovum on March 25, 2008. On June 27, 2010, Aquino announced that she had separated from Yap, citing personal reasons and stated she was seeking a de facto divorce from him.[15] On March 21, 2013, Aquino appeared in a 30-minute interview with TV Patrol to announce her resignation from all of her ABS-CBN shows to spend time with her youngest son.[16]

She later stated that James Yap made sexual advances towards her inside her room, which she refused. She said Yap threatened her in the presence of Bimby, who was traumatized by the incident.[17][18] Aquino filed a temporary protection order on March 20, 2013. In the petition, she asked the court to order Yap to stay away from her, her son, and any household member, keep a distance of at least 100 meters, and to stay away from her residence, school, place of employment, or any place frequented by her and her son.[19]

In early April 2014, Aquino posted a photograph on her Instagram account that showed her with her children, her siblings and Quezon City mayor Herbert Bautista having dinner. This fueled rumors that she and Bautista were dating.[20] She confirmed this during the April 5 live episode of her evening show Aquino and Abunda Tonight.[21] Speculation arose about the relationship after it emerged that Bautista had not yet ended his other relationship with his long-time partner and mother of two of his children.[22] Finally, on April 21, Aquino hinted on Aquino and Abunda Tonight that she and Bautista had stopped dating.[23]

Ancestry[edit]

Business ventures[edit]

Aside from her TV and movie career, Aquino owns and manages several businesses. She co-owns Lena Restaurant and Sencillo, a Mexican restaurant, as well as Roberto Antonio, an upscale flower shop with business partner Boy Abunda.[24] She also founded a boutique and agency in partnership with Abunda and other personalities including Nonon del Carmen and Agnes Maranan. The boutique and agency was named MAD (an acronym for their surnames, Maranan Abunda Aquino del Carmen).[25] She also co-owns Sierra Madre Water. In 2013, Aquino had established her own production firm called Kris Aquino Productions or K Productions with its debut movie, My Little Bossings starring her son, Bimby Yap.
