Kris Aquino says she's leaving ABS-CBN

MANILA, Philippines - Kris Aquino says she will be stepping away from the limelight.
In a series of Instagram posts on Tuesday, the TV host-actress said she is leaving ABS-CBN, her home network for almost 20 years, to focus on her health, her family and her businesses.
The announcement comes days after she hinted on social media about making "important life choices in the next days" following recent issues with her health.
"Thank you, Kapamilya," Kris began. "Our relationship as a family started October 28, 1996 and it will soon end this March 23, 2016."
"A total of 10,354 days working for ABS-CBN, my life's most fulfilling professional journey because of your love, acceptance and loyalty," she told her more than two million followers on Instagram. 
She also said the taping days for her morning show "Kris TV" is set on Wednesday and Thursday.
She continued: "Just like all of you, I love my FAMILY. My most valuable life destiny is to be Mama to KUYA JOSH and BIMBY; and to be a loving, selfless sister to ATE, PINKY, NOY and VIEL: a BUNSO who doesn't give them constant worry because of my health and safety."
"I'm not putting a time frame, but with my type of work, it's realistic to accept by leaving ABSCBN I'll be replaced and soon forgotten," Kris added.
"My sons and I will travel, we'll move to our new home, and I'll eat healthy, sleep early, exercise regularly, and live quietly--everything to make sure Kuya Josh and Bimb have a healthy mother."
Kris thanked her endorsements for "sticking it out with me while I work on my longterm health and wellness." 
Kris added that for her "next chapter," she will focus on her businesses.
"I need to continue being WORKING MOM since I'm the SOLE PROVIDER for my sons, but for now I'll do it away from the stress of the limelight."
She also said "this isn't goodbye" but a "I think you'll miss me and I hope to see you again, soon."

Part 5... I gave you my whole truth because tomorrow & Thursday are my last 2 taping days for @kristvofficial_ig... It has been a beautiful journey- THANK YOU!

This isn't the first time Kris said she will stay away from showbiz. In 2013, after  a spat with ex-husband James Yap, Kris said she will resign from show business to focus on her children.
In 2010, she also resigned from her showbiz talk shows after her brother Benigno Aquino III was elected as president of the Philippines, only to return as a TV host a year after via the morning talk "Kris TV."
