MANILA -- Host-actress Kris Aquino believes that the success she is enjoying right now is because she doesn't have sex.
"I know my priorities siguro kaya na bi-blessed because I don't have sex," Aquino told her friend, host Boy Abunda, on her morning show "KrisTV" on Tuesday.
Aquino also believes that the success of "My Little Bossings," which marked the movie debut of her son James "Bimby" Yap Jr., was because she is celibate.
"Ngayon ko na-realize pala talaga na it's possible na 'yung kaligayahan mo it doesn't come pala from fulfillment sa sarili but it comes from seeing people loving your child. Sinabi ko nga, nagdarasal ako, 'God, ano ba ang nagawa kong bongga para ibigay mo ito kay Bimb?' Kasi hindi ba nasa Biblia 'yon na kung ano ang itanim mo bilang magulang 'yon ang aanihin ng anak. So sabi ko, 'Thank you God,'" she explained.
"Kasi siguro mabait ako, kasi siguro celibate ako, sorry I have to say, let's be honest. ... I'm just saying na siguro parang alam ko kung ano ang priorities in life ko and siguro talaga kung ano ang pinakamahalaga sa iyo, 'yun ang ipagkakaloob sa iyo ng Diyos at ang pinakamahalaga sa akin ay 'yung dalawang anak ko," Aquino continued.
Aquino, whose marriage to basketball player James Yap was officially annulled in 2012, said she is no longer looking for a new romance.
"Noong nagdasal ako, sinabi ko, 'God, basta happy na ang boys ko, happy sila, kahit walang partner, okay na ako. But please don't make me feel lonely lang. 'Yung parang kung ano man ang fulfillment and joy na nararamdaman ko with them, sana pagpatuloy mo ito. Pero kung darating 'yung point na lonely ako, ikaw na ang bahala,'" Aquino said.
Aquino is set to officially renew her contract with ABS-CBN on Tuesday afternoon.
