Kris plans to study 'governance and law'

MANILA, Philippines - Actress and TV host Kris Aquino wants to study "governance and law" when she ends her career in show business.

Speaking in a recorded interview on ABS-CBN's The Buzz on Sunday, March 24, Aquino said she has realized the importance of knowing the law. 

Aquino recently asked the Makati court to order her ex-husband, professional basketball player James Yap, to stay away from her. She accused Yap of making unwanted sexual advances toward her.

The TV host then announced in a live television interview she was quitting her job for the sake of her 5-year-old son with Yap, James Jr. or "Bimby."

Later on, however, the ABS-CBN management announced Aquino would stay and honor her existing commitments. She stars in teleserye "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" and sits as judge in reality show, "Pilipans Got Talent."

The parties were mum on whether the actress would continue her talk show "Kris TV."

In a text message she reportedly sent to a friend, Aquino wrote that her talk show would be the first thing she would give up, The Buzz said.

Aquino apologized and thanked her manager and friend, Boy Abunda, for his support in her taped interview.

Abunda replied, "I stand by my friend, Kris Aquino." He also clarified that all of the endorsers of Aquino have not withdrawn their support for the controversial actress.

On Saturday, March 23, Aquino left for Paris, France along with her two children for a vacation. Abunda said ABS-CBN will discuss Aquino's contract with her when she returns. -
