MANILA - TV host-actress Kris Aquino said she has volunteered to cut short her New York trip for her close friend, Boy Abunda.
On Instagram, Aquino said she will soon fly back to Manila to host her show with Abunda, "Aquino & Abunda Tonight", because the latter still needs more time to recover.
Citing their 16-year working relationship, Aquino said she cannot enjoy her vacation knowing that Abunda will be stressed.
"I was able to communicate w/ Bong, Boy Abunda's life partner, my boss tita Cory Vidanes & my Talk BUH @luiandrada . Boy will still need a couple more weeks to fully recover & I VOLUNTEERED to fly home the morning after I get to watch Eminem's concert," she wrote.
"Boy is my BEST FRIEND, my manager, my mentor & my support system. Hindi ko kaya mag enjoy ng vacation knowing that he'll be stressed if neither 1 of us is on Aquino & Abunda. We've worked together cumulatively for 16 years & it has worked because of our shared passion to be the best & to give our loyal Kapamilya audience consistently good, factual, responsible & fun talk experiences... I like to believe we bring out the best in each other, kaya on Tue, Aug 19 LIVE, straight from the airport, on A&A," she added.
Aquino went on to say that she values Abunda over vacation opportunities.
"I will have many more vacation opportunities in the future, but for now I need to prove to Boy my priority is for his full recovery w/ as little work related stress as possible! I Will BE HERE," she wrote.
Last week, Aquino said that her trip abroad is a "gift" to herself.
Before the Eminem concert, Aquino enjoyed the new musical "If/Then" featuring Idina Menzel.
