Aquino’s previous show on ABS-CBN, “Kris TV,” aired its last episode in March and was replaced by “Magandang Buhay,” which Estrada co-hosts with Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal.
Last week, however, Aquino had a meeting with ABS-CBN executives to discuss her TV comeback.
Since then, Aquino and ABS-CBN have yet to confirm if the two parties have come to an agreement.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Monday at the set of her sitcom “Funny Ka, Pare Ko” with Bayani Agbayani, Estrada revealed that it’s been awhile since she last talked with Aquino.
“Kung ako, hindi ako nag-aalala, ewan ko lang sa lahat,” she said. “Kung nasaan man kami ngayon, kung ano man ang trabaho, ‘yun po ay ibinigay sa amin bilang kasama sa kontratang pinirmahan namin sa (ABS-CBN). Lahat ‘yon ay trabaho at ang nagde-desisyon noon ay boss.”
But Estrada stressed, that as a friend, she’s happy that Aquino is resuming her TV career as she denied that she feels threatened.
“Nakita niyo naman kami, kapag napapanood niyo ang ‘Magandang Buhay’ para lang kaming nagsisipaglaro doon, o di ba? Okay kami, masaya,” she said.
Even if Aquino returns to her morning time slot, Estrada said she is also sure that management knows what is the best time slot for their show.
“I’m sure alam ng ABS-CBN kung saan din kami magandang ilalagay. Ngayon pa nakakatuwa na namamayagpag kami sa rating. … Pero talagang tuwang-tuwa sila kasi ngayon lang nag-rate ng ganoong kataas ang morning show — pumapalo kami ng 10% pataas, minsan nagdo-dose,” Estrada noted.
