Morning Girls with Kris and Korina was a morning talk show on ABS-CBN, hosted by broadcaster Korina Sanchez and Kris Aquino. Originally intended for only two weeks, the show instead ran for 16 months. It officially ended on May 28, 2004 when the network decided to tap Korina Sanchez for Rated K, a news-magazine program on the station's Sunday Slot, after Sharon temporarily went off-air, due to Sharon's pregnancy[1]. Morning Girls was replaced by the now-defunct talk show Good Morning Kris, where Kris hosted the show for six months.


Original format

Morning Girls started as a replacement for ABS-CBN's Talk TV in 2002. It was originally hosted by the triumvirate of Kris Aquino, Pops Fernandez, and Zsa Zsa Padilla. Kris decided to quit hosting the show and was replaced by Carmina Villaroel until January 3, 2003, when Villaroel formally ended her contract with ABS-CBN and moved to rival network GMA-7. On the same period, Pops Fernandez also formally ended her contract with the station.[2]

Temporary stint

When Kris Aquino's love quarrel with Joey Marquez became known to the public, she decided to temporarily leave her hosting stint at Morning Girls. The replay of her exclusive "tell-all" interview with Korina Sanchez on TV Patrol[3] was aired on September 25, 2003. When Kris was prepared to go back, it was Morning Girls where she decided to return to first.

Because two of the original hostesses moved to the rival station, ABS-CBN decided to tap Kris Aquino and Korina Sanchez temporarily for two weeks until the show could be replaced. However, the two-week grace period proved to be successful, prompting the station to prolong the show.

Guests and features

On its first anniversary, the show featured former President Corazon Aquino and Vice-President Noli De Castro. The show had the opportunity to serve as an avenue for certain politicians to discuss political issues during the Pre-2004 National Elections.

The morning talk show managed to regularly invite and feature major celebrities from GMA-7, including Richard Gomez, Ogie Alcasid, and Regine Velasquez. It also scored a ratings coup during the 2003 Christmas episode when the show guested Eat Bulaga! main hosts Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon.

Morning Girls first revealed the relationship of Korina Sanchez and Philippine senator Mar Roxas to the public when Roxas and Sanchez admitted their romantic relationship on the show. Some critics asserted that their relationship became a factor helping Mar Roxas become the top senator in the 2004 National Elections.[4].

Morning Girls became controversial when Kris accused a congressman of being disrespectful to the military in connection with the Oakwood mutiny, while Korina referred to Representative Clavel Martinez as bastos (rude). They were asked to attend a Congressional hearing to explain their statements[9], but they refused to attend on the legislator's first and second invitation. On the third invitation, Sanchez still refused but Aquino decided to show-up. As a result, Aquino was cleared, while Rep. Martinez asked that Korina show up or face repercussion. The controversy led to the exchange of statements between Representative Martinez and her fellow legislators and Kapisanan ng mga Brodkasters sa Pilipinas[10]. The issue even caused the Martinez' Political clan of Cebu to ask Mar Roxas to make amends with Representative Martinez, so the latter would endorse Roxas' candidacy at Cebu.[11]
