MANILA -- Actress Maja Salvador insisted that she has no problem with television host Kris Aquino, who is known to be very close with Kim Chiu.
The actress even said she's willing to guest on "Aquino and Abunda Tonight" to promote her debut album, "Believe," although she did say she would want to have both Aquino and co-host Boy Abunda during the interview.
"Dapat dalawa po sila," Salvador said at the launch of her album on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Salvador even addressed Aquino as "Tita Kris," given that she is the niece of actor Philip Salvador, who has a son, Joshua, with the "Kris TV" host.
"Walang awkward. Sobrang love ko 'yan, si Tita Kris," says Salvador.
Aquino had repeatedly expressed her support and love to Chiu despite criticisms from some fans who have accused her of being unfair.
An Instagram user recently pointed out that Aquino has been guesting Chiu on her morning show "Kris TV" too often without giving a chance to Maja Salvador, who is the current girlfriend of Chiu's ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson.
Despite this, Salvador said she doesn't mind that Aquino is closer to Chiu.
"Totoo naman na close din si Tita kay Kim. Walang dapat paglabanin kung sino ang mas close kay Tita Kris. Ang importante doon ay okay din kami ni Tita Kris pero 'yun nga lang mas nakakasama niya talaga si Kim. Pero ako kasi since every day ang taping ko ng 'The Legal Wife' di ako nakakapag-guest sa kanya. Pero okay kami," Salvador stressed.
Ending rift with Kim
In the interview, Salvador also reiterated her hopes that she will eventually reconcile with Chiu, who was once her best friend.
"In time, magugulat na lang kayo. Gugulatin na lang namin kayo na ay okat na pala kayo,'" Salvador said.
"Believe lang tayo baka in time. Kasi magkakasalubong at magkakasalubong kami at isang taon na 'yon. At di ba tao kaming lahat na pwede kaming magpatawad, pwede kaming mag-start ulit at pwede naming i-accept kung ano ang sitwasyon natin ngayon? Matatanda na din kasi. Ikaw mismo dapat alam mo kung ano ang dapat i-let go," she said.
Asked if she's making a way to finally end her rift with her "Ina Kapatid Anak" co-star, Salvador merely replied: "Pray for us."
