Kris Aquino was in the middle of an interview when a magnitude 6.1 tectonic earthquake hit Central Luzon on April 22.
Her reaction was caught on-cam and went viral on social media.
In a video posted by Leo Bukas, Kris was talking to the entertainment press that was supposedly organized in support of her cousin Bam Aquino’s senatorial bid.
While remaining calm, the celebrity mom became worried for sons Josh at Bimby and asked her assistants check on them.
“I want to go home to my sons kasi nasa fault line kami.” said Kris who became anxious and dizzy. (“I want to go home to my sons because we live near the fault line.”)
Despite being in an unsettling situation, Kris still managed to joke about it, “It’s the end of the world na I’m telling you. Buti na lang binili ko na lahat ng Chanel na gusto kong bilhin.” (“It’s the end of the world, I’m telling you. Just as well I already bought all the Chanel that I wanted to buy.”)

I know earthquake is not a joke. But I really admire Kris Aquino dito na naging kampante kahit paano or she just don’t know na malakas yung quake… pic.twitter.com/r16L8d7f7D— KJ (@ItsMeKennethJoy) April 23, 2019
