MANILA, Philippines -- Actor John Estrada denied that there is a rift between him and host-actress Kris Aquino, saying there's no truth to reports that Aquino got offended by his joke when he recently guested on "KrisTV."
In that episode, Estrada kidded Aquino about her former boyfriend, Joey Marquez.
"Hindi ko alam 'yon. Wala talaga. We are OK," Estrada told reporters after the press conference of his latest series "A Beautiful Affair" with Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz.
According to Estrada, he and Aquino even gave each other a heads up on what they were going to say in the show.
"(Nagpaalaman?) Oh yes, kaya wala talagang (issue) hindi ko alam. Dati pa naman kasi 'yon binibiro natin. Kaibigan naman natin si Kris," Estrada said.
In the interview, Estrada said he's really excited to be part of "A Beautiful Affair," which is part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the love team of Cruz and Alonzo.
"Mabait ako noong una, pero noong nalaman ko na parang niloko ako ng minentor ko na si John Lloyd, nag-iba ang outlook ko sa buhay ko. At nang malaman ko na 'yung pinakamamahal ko si Bea ay nagkaroon ng affair sa minentor ko ay nag-iba talaga. 'Yun excited ako doon," Estrada said.
The series will premiere on Monday, October 29, after "Ina, Kapatid, Anak," on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida block.
