History Of Kris Aquino, Korina Sanchez’s “Tricky Friendship”

This is the history of the “tricky friendship” between Kris Aquino and Korina Sanchez who are now having a conflict due to a ‘Rated K’ feature about James Yap.

The world of social media was shocked as Queen of all Media Kris Aquino expressed her rage against former co-host Korina Sanchez as James Yap was positively featured in ‘Rated K’.

Kris apologized for dragging the names of political personalities on her social media rant but she is firm in her conviction that what Korina did was not pleasing for her, based on a previous article.

Many may think that the feud between the two prominent TV personalities just started with this, but in an article published in Rappler, it stated that the conflict between them has a history.

It all started back in the ’80s or ’90s when Korina was dating no other than the brother of Kris, Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III. The two have been silent about their past but they really dated for a while. Korina ended up marrying Mar Roxas, who is now one of the closest political allies of the Aquinos.

It was said that their ties become loose after that, however, Kris and Korina had a chance to work together as hosts of daytime talkshow, ‘Morning Girls with Kris and Korina’.


It lasted for two years until the time Korina left to host ‘Rated K’ while Kris hosted the ‘Good Morning Kris’.

The love story of Korina and Mar was first made public on ‘Morning Girls’ but the announcement of their engagement triggered the rift between the former co-hosts.

Kris worked out that the engagement announcement of Korina and Mar would be exclusive on ‘Showbiz News Ngayon’, her entertainment program together with Boy Abunda.


On the other hand, the couple first announced that they were getting married on Willie Revillame’s program, ‘Wowowee’.

Though Roxas was eyeing for presidency during that time, he postponed his plan to give way to Noynoy Aquino, Korina’s former flame and the brother of Kris.

Roxas instead ran for Vice President but was defeated by Jejomar Binay, a long-time family friend of the Aquinos.

It was said that the decision of Liberal Party to make Mar run as the vice president instead of president was a selfish act and a major sacrifice on his part and his supporters included his wife, Korina, naturally. It was admitted by Kris in an interview on September 2009.

During the 2010 elections, there were groups supporting Noynoy but they were supporting Jejomar Binay as the vice president instead of his running mate, Mar Roxas.

It was pointed out to the fact the Binay and Aquino clans had a tight political bond since Cory Aquino and Jejomar Binay himself were very close political and personal allies.

When the 2016 elections came, Noynoy as the chief endorser expressed support to Mar as LP’s standard-bearer. Kris went all out in campaigning for the candidate endorsed by his brother to the point that she was slammed for using the presidential helicopter to attend a provincial campaign sortie.

She mentioned it on her controversial Instagram post against Korina.

So far, this has been the ups and downs in the tricky friendship of Kris Aquino and Korina Sanchez, based on the source.
