MANILA -- TV host Boy Abunda believes that teen star Kathryn Bernardo will be the country's next superstar.
During the Monday episode of"Aquino & Abunda Tonight!" with Kris Aquino, Abunda said he admired Bernardo for being true and frank.
Abunda made the statement after he recalled the "no comment" reply of teen actress Jane Oineza when fellow housemates asked her if Bernardo ever had cosmetic surgery.
"Hindi ko nagustuhan 'yung ginawa ni Jane nung sumagot siya na 'no comment' because ang feeling ko noon magkaibigan kayo ni Kathryn, magkababata kayo. You used to guest in my show, you should know. So, kapag tinatanong ka you either say 'I don't know' or 'yes' or 'no.' Kasi may malice eh," Abunda explained.
"Ako I loved it when Kathryn was talking to Jane and sinabi niyang, 'Sa susunod kapag tinanong ka, dahil alam mo naman ang totoo sabihin mo.' That's character. You know off cam I was talking to you yesterday, sabi ko Kathryn Bernardo is the emerging superstar," Abunda told Aquino, who agreed and said: "Naman, we love her."
"Para sa akin that's coming from my heart," Abunda added.
Last week, Bernardo visited the "Pinoy Big Brother" house and was called into the confession room to clarify matters with Oineza.
Oineza explained to the "Got To Believe" star what had happened as she apologized to Bernardo.
