On December 27, 2017, PEP.ph reported how Kris Aquino gushed about actor Alden Richards. According to the article by Nerisa Almo, Kris had said in one of her Facebook videos, “I love Alden. I’m really a fan.”
On the following day, Kris posted on her Instagram account a snippet of the clip.
She captioned it: “Had to have this portion edited to share with all of you. [I'm a] certified @aldenrichards02 fan! I was thrilled to see a 'thank you' text from him because he must have gotten word about all I said in the 'Merienda with Kris' [video] we uploaded. Work wish for 2018: to play Alden’s mom in a project. Hopefully a drama with a bit of realistic, funny moments exploring the love and complexities of a single mom and her grown-up son.... Just me imagining Bimb and me 15 years from now.... 'Di na ako mahihiya, libreng mangarap so I’m tagging @annettegozon of GMA Films and @gmanetwork.”
While a lot of Alden’s and Kris’ fans got excited about the possibility of the two big names working together, there were others who were not so keen on this.
Instagram user @ruthsmith5327 commented on Kris’ post: “Sus naman Kris. Mag-alaga ka na lang ng anak mo! After ng kwento mo na nag-propose si Bistek sa 'yo, si Alden naman! Naka-ilang lalaki ka na ba? Tama [na], majonda ka na!”
Kris didn’t let that remark pass. She replied, “@ruthsmith5327 And you must really have low comprehension skills. I said my dream project was to PORTRAY HIS MOTHER. Please read before you bash me. I don’t mind intelligent criticism but I take offense at poor comprehension.”
There is no word yet from GMA, Alden’s home network, about making Kris’ work wish come true.
What do you think about a Kris-Alden film?
