  • Did Kris Aquino Give Up on Her Marriage Too Early?

    Do you think Kris Aquino did the right thing by putting an end to her marriage with James Yap? We share the highs and lows of their roller coaster relationship and why Kris says it’s finally over.
  • A look back on Kris Aquino and James Yap’s rocky marriage:


    February 2007:

    Hope Centeno, a receptionist at a dermatological clinic, claims that she had a 10-month affair with James and is pregnant with his baby. Kris was then still pregnant with Baby James. The issue caused Kris to withdraw her endorsement of the clinic. James issues a statement denying the affair.


    December 2009:

    The couple quarreled on Christmas Eve and James left their home but returned on the same night. A report said that the cause of the misunderstanding was Kris’s busy showbiz schedule with her nightly showbiz program SNN and almost daily taping for primetime soap Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo.


    January 2010:

    Kris Aquino and sons Joshua and Baby James move out of their house in the midst of then rumor circulating about husband James Yap and rumored girlfriend, Mayen Austria. “I just need time and space to think...in my heart I still want it [their marriage] to work,” she said on The Buzz last January 18.
    At that time, Kris was opening up about how difficult it was to be the only one pitching an effort to keep the marriage afloat and how she valued assurance in their relationship. She also categorically denied causing a scene at the Austria residence.

    Despite these problems, Kris admitted that she still loves James and that they just needed space to sort things out. A week later, the couple reunited and admitted that they were both trying hard to strengthen their marriage.



    February 2010:

    Kris gives James and her children P5 M worth of property as birthday gift.


    May 2010:

    Kris announces that she will be ending her hosting stint with her two showbiz talk shows SNN (Showbiz News Ngayon) and The Buzz after a discussion with her sisters Ballsy, Pinky and Viel.


    June 2010:

    June 18: Kris suspends her Twitter account, itsmekrisaquino  to keep “what is left of our privacy,”

    June 23: Friend and co-host Boy Abunda reveals that the couple “are not okay yet.”  

    June 27: Kris announces the end of her marriage on The Buzz.
