The “Queen of All Media” made the announcement on her official Instagram account.

“My manager Deo Edrinal continued talks w/ our ABS bosses during the Christmas break & it is w/ much joy that I share w/ you that we have RENEWED my ABSCBN contract. I am grateful to my ABS CBN bosses, Sir Gabby, Ma’am Charo, and tita Cory for the trust, value & importance they have given me,” the controversial actress and television host said.

Kris also denied rumors she had talks with GMA network executives, but admitted that she met TV5 owner Manny “MVP” Pangilinan.

“May I set the record straight? 1) I never met w/ any GMA officials but I am grateful to them for the generous coverage they gave My Little Bossings, primarily because of their longstanding partnership w/ Vic Sotto & the Eat Bulaga family. 2) I had met w/ MVP (Manny Pangilinan) in October & again Dec 23 of 2013.,” the “My Little Bossings” star posted.

Rumors about the network switch of Kris Aquino began to circulate online after Philippine Star columnist Salve Asis wrote that the presidential sister decided to transfer to the Kapuso network in 2014.
