MANILA - The secret is out: actress-host Kris Aquino has admitted that she underwent non-surgical nose enhancement.
On Friday's episode of her morning show, "Kris TV," Aquino talked about her nose job after she was teased by her friend, comedian Vice Ganda.
"Hindi ba tinanong kita before kung nose mo ba talaga yan o medyo naglagay ng bridge? Kasi maganda ang nose mo," Aquino told Vice Ganda.
Vice then replied: "Sabi niya kasi, 'naglagay ka ba ng konti?' Sabi ko, 'hindi.' Sabi niya, 'ako naglagay ako ng konti pero hindi naman halata.'"
"You are so maldita. Ewan ko sa iyo. Nagkabukingan talaga tayo ngayon," Aquino said. "Proud to be me. Ewan ko sa iyo. Tapos lahat sila ngayon sasabihin, 'Oh my God, umamin si Kris.'"
Aquino then shared how the cosmetic procedure was done.
"Walang nilagay. Hindi tinrim. Mayroon kang i-inject dito (points to the sides of her nose) para hindi nagpi-flare. Ang sakit, Lord, I swear. Bawal kang patulugin para they know. But they didn't put anything, ito lang (points again to the sides of her nose) para hindi nagpi-flare. Basta 'yon, in-inject, ang sakit. Pamatay sa sakit," she said, adding that she could not remember the name of the procedure.
The TV host also revealed the reason why she had her nose done.
"You know why? Kasi kapag may crying scene ka gumaganun-ganon 'yung ilong mo (nagpi-flare). Kasi nakaka-distract. Si direk Chito ang nagsabi sa akin, hindi kita ma-close up kasi nagpi-flare 'yung nostrils mo kapag umiiyak ka. Sabi ko, 'direk, siyempre umiiyak ka,'" she said.
Earlier, Aquino said she is set to do three movies this year.
