Aquino, 49, had been on a two-year hiatus from showbiz.
Aquino had set conditions before a possible comeback on national television. In response to a fan asking for an update of her comeback, Aquino said that she needs to ask for a medical clearance due to her autoimmune issues.
“I still need a medical clearance because of my autoimmune issues.I’m leaving everything as part of God’s plans for my life,” she said.
On the other side, she wants to pursue taking up political science in an online course.
“My other path is to take an online course (since many are now online) ‘political science’ sometimes you also have to follow the call of destiny,” Kris added.
Kris wants to be a documentary content creator of which she will host and produce for her comeback as she also wants to tackle political issues. She recalled that her father, the late Ninoy Aquino started as a war correspondent for the Manila Times.
Kris revealed that she watches Chris Cuomo, a journalist who came from a political clan and is known for his appearances related to social and political issues on CNN.
Aquino shared that she doesn’t want to have an opinion because of her DNA, rather, she wants to be thoroughly informed and be very well-rounded. “There’s a part of me that wants to be a content creator of documentaries that I myself hosted and produced,” she added.
She was due for a comeback in 2019, but that proved to be a tumultuous year instead. It saw her high-profile legal battle with her former business manager, subsequent loss of endorsement deals, her aborted film return, as well as her battle with an autoimmune disease.
In her Tuesday announcement, Aquino also thanked her family and her long-time followers “for helping me pray for this moment to finally arrive.”
