Sharon Cuneta On Feud With Tito Sotto And Helen Gamboa: “Sana tapos na…”

“I am only a human being…”

Despite her standing as the Megastar, Sharon Cuneta still has the right to get mad, cry, and feel bad.

Her eyes flooded up with tears at the press launch of her new show on TV5, as she talked about her still-unresolved disagreement with her aunt Helen Gamboa, the sister of her Mommy Elaine.

It’s been more than a month since she said, “Yes, politics does divide families, like when my uncle says something bad about Kiko, you don’t understand why…”

Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan is Sharon’s husband.

To which, Helen responded: “Sumasama ang loob ko. I feel that it is not right na ang pamangkin ko ay masyadong matayog. I could feel that she’s so unreachable. Hindi ko na siya maabot…”

But reconciliation seems nowhere near the horizon.

In between cries, Shawie (her nickname) said, “Yun lang sinabi ko ‘tapos ang sakit-sakit na ng sinabi niya…”

Her only line to Senator Tito Sotto’s family is Ciara.

In jest, she told her cousin, “Ano ako saranggola ni Pepe, matayog?”

At the press launch, Sharon said: “Hindi ako nagmamalaki. Hindi ako lumaking ganun.

“Kasama ko siyang nagpalaki sa akin…

“Napaka-delayed reaction ko naman na lumaki ang ulo ko ngayon…

“Hindi naman ako nakikipagmataasan. Diyos ko, never kong ginawa sa 46 years ng buhay ko yung magmalaki….

“Ang sakit naman nun dahil yung accusations niya… parang nanay ko yun.”

What Sharon doesn’t know

After the long wait of reteam-up of Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Conception. Fans of the famous 80′s love team would be disappointed as their movie might not be pushed through.

On Feb. 11, Sharon and Martin Nievera are starring in the Valentine concert Once In A Lifetime at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. As a kilig factor, the producers decided to invite the stars’ exes as guests — Gabby for Sharon and Pops Fernandez for Martin.Thankfully, Gabby and Pops were “game.”

But as for Sharon’s husband Sen. Kiko Pangilinan objected and he had a good reason to. Their daughters Frankie and Miel will be in the audience and they might be too young to comprehend why their mom would be having fun onstage with another man. Sharon and Gabby’s daughter KC is old enough, so no problem with her.

Well if that is the case, Gabby reconsidered his decision to do a movie with Sharon because it might create exactly that kind of problem since the movie’s promo would certainly hark back to their past. That would be too “disturbing” for Sharon and Kiko’s younger daughters.

Certainly, Gabby is right in deciding not to appear as guest in Sharon and Martin’s concert and in bending  out of the movie project, giving as alibi the fact that his wife Ginbee is giving birth, never mind if there were insinuations that he was asking for an “unaffordable” talent fee. He was not.

Could it be true that Sharon is the last to know?

David Archuleta is Coming Back to the Philippines for an Acting Career

It is confirmed that American Idol alumnus David Archuleta will arrive in the Philippines on January 13, 2012 and this time, it is not for singing but for an acting career.

David recently signed a contract with TV5. He will do a primetime series for the Kapatid Network with actresses Jasmin Curtis-Smith and Eula Caballero. According to Cristi Fermin on “Paparazzi”, the details of the show such as the title and the time slot will soon be announced in a later date. In the said primetime series, David will play a love triangle role with Jasmin and Eula.

It seems like the Kapatid Network is working its best to climb up the rankings. It has spent a lot of money on acquiring big stars such as Sharon Cuneta, Willie Revillame, and Maricel Soriano. And now, they have an American Idol alumnus to help them with the ratings.

Meanwhile, David Archuleta earlier announced that he would be leaving the singing industry for a while to do a fulltime mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints.

“It’s not because someone told me that I’m supposed to do it, not because I no longer want to do music anymore, but it’s because of the feeling that I felt that I need to do next in my life. It’s just the same feeling that I’ve always followed, try to follow in my life. It’s the feeling that’s allowed me to have the opportunities I’ve had, the challenges I’ve had to overcome, and the blessings, too. I’ve learned to trust that feeling. I’ve learned that I need to answer when He calls. And that’s the reason I know that I need to do this in my life,” Archuleta said.

His Mormon mission is not yet set at this time but he revealed that it would be early this year.

Ate Shawie is the Newest Kapatid

Megastar Sharon Cuneta’s transfer from ABS-CBN to TV5 has long been an issue which Megastar neither confirmed nor denied. Yesterday, November 22, 2011, the issue was proved to be right as TV5 employees welcome Sharon Cuneta as their newest Kapatid. Describing how she felt as she stepped foot in TV5 office at Marajo Tower in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig with a warm welcome by her new TV5 family, Sharon said that it was “mixed emotions.”

The Megastar signed a five- year-contract with the Kapatid Network inclusive of a daily TV show, a reality show, and a movie project. Present in the contract signing was TV5 President and CEO Atty. Ray Espinosa, TV5 COO Robert Barriero, Sharon Cuneta’s longtime manager Sandra Chavez and her other manager Vic del Rosario of Viva Artist Agency. However, TV5 Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan was not there during the contract signing. “MVP is supposed to be here but there’s too much Pangilinans already,” Sharon said as a joke.

Sharon Cuneta is rumored to have a 1 billion peso talent fee but when the press tried to confirm the issue, they just kept mum about it.

On the other hand, KC was clueless in her mom’s transfer of home network.

KC on the issue: “Wala pa po siyang [her mom] kinukuwento sa akin. Siguro hinihiwalay lang niya ‘yong… Whatever makes her happy, magiging masaya din ako.”

Meanwhile, the much awaited Vilma Santos-Sharon Cuneta movie will not push through yet. Both Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Star for All Season Vilma Santos were saddened on this postponement.

“Hindi ako matatahimik hangga’t hindi kami gumagawa ng movie together,” Sharon said.

“Ang mga proyekto there’s such a thing as right timing e. Pagka may mga obstacles na ganyan, huwag nating ituloy. Baka kasi hindi pa time yan. Pero definitely, and magandang balita is nakareserba yan,” Ate Vi explains.

As of now, Ate Shawie focuses her attention in her movie with Gerald Anderson, Enrique Gil, and Julia Montes under the direction of Laurenti Dyogi which will be showed in theaters next year.

Sharon Cuneta Moves to TV5?

Rumors has been circulating the industry that actress and TV host Miss Sharon Cuneta will be transfering to TV5 as soon as her contract with ABS-CBN expires on January 2012.

It has been said that Sharon already had a meeting with TV5 executives to sign her contract with them. But she denies these allegations , however she said that she has not closed any doors to other networks.

“So far yah. I’m here, I haven’t packed my things. I’m again being managed by Boss Vic del Rosario and I’m very happy about that; he’s co-managing me with Sandra Chavez.

“Parang it’s a little bit of a homecoming for me sa Viva. I’ll do projects with them, pati recording later on. I’ll do a big concert with Martin Nievera for the first time—a back to back—it’s called Once in a Lifetime in Araneta on Ferbruary 11. I [also] have a concert in New Zealand next month,”

“But back to the issue… At this point, I haven’t been, I’m waiting for Boss Vic and Sandra to tell me what the actual situation is. I will need to sit down with them and see what’s happening.

“Tapos, I’ll be happy to sit down and hear what other people will offer me. So far, I have no reason yet to leave ABS. Kumbaga I haven’t met with anybody. Let’s see, that’s the most honest answer I can give.

“I haven’t met with anybody yet but I’d like to give myself a chance.”

When asked about whether she would still host the next season of Star Power and Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition. She replied “Honestly, I cannot comment also at this point.”

Having hosted the Biggest Loser Sharon admits that she lost some weight.

“I’m down 3 [sizes] so far. Smart eating, conscious eating, then you give yourself a break, every now and then. Today I had an apple ’cause I needed sugar, just for today.

“The treatment at Marie France also helps speed up my metabolism. I also cut down on my carbs.”

KC Conception and Piolo Pascual’s Break Up

Piolo Pascual - KC Conception

KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual’s relationship is allegedly may come to an end. The rumored breakup began circulating early this week despite KC sharing on The Buzz last Sunday about their 10th monthsary. This rumors or recent report which is fast becoming the latest talks in tabloids, blogs and several networking sites was slightly confirmed by KC’s mother Sharon Cuneta in her interview last August 24, 2011 at TV Patrol World. Megastar said she’s not free to talk about what her daughter is going through with her love life. But then she addressed her concerns to KC because she said she couldn’t help speaking her mind.

“Kristina, mama’s here. Don’t forget you’re my daughter. We love you. We went through so much when you were little. You don’t have to go through it yourself,” megastar said. Then she continued, “Uulitin ko sinabi ng Daddy ko noon: Kahit metro aide ang maging asawa niya basta siya yung mahal na mahal, yung alagang-alaga. Kasi, ‘di ko pinalaki ‘yan para i-take for granted lang at balewalain.”

This news remains just a rumor as no confirmation yet coming from KC and Piolo themselves. However, KC’s Twitter posting yesterday would hint about something (that she and Piolo have already broken up?). She posted: “when things go beyond our Understanding, we can choose to Accept everything – just as they are..! because Faith steps in:) no regrets …:)”

Pep.com: When PEP asked a source, who is close to both Piolo and KC, about the rumored problem of the couple, we got this reply through text: ”May tampuhan but nothing serious. Normal lang naman for real relationships, di ba? They’ve been through worse than this. By now, baka nga bati na.” Contrary to the popular speculations, the source swears that “the two are still very much on up to this minute. In fact, KC even greeted Piolo last Sunday on air on The Buzz, saying ‘happy monthsary.’ “No relationship is perfect. But as long as both remain committed to make it work, there is enough reason to believe that they would celebrate their first anniversary as a couple on October 21st. “Of course, we don’t expect Piolo to comment on the issue out of respect to KC and her mom, whom he puts in high regard.”

It’s depressing to know if it’s true that they already broke up ‘coz they’re a beautiful couple and they seem perfect for each other. Piolo and KC started dating while working for the teleserye “Lovers in Paris” in 2009 and Earlier this year, Piolo admitted on national television that he and KC has been a couple since October 2010. And KC herself testified last Sunday on her showbiz talk show The Buzz that she and Piolo have been going out for 10 months.

Sharon Cuneta on her adopted son: “I think yung nag-iba lang, hindi siya lumabas sa akin. But I chose to be his mother.”


Nagkaroon ng pagkakataon ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) na makausap ang Megastar na si Sharon Cuneta sa Imperial Palace Suites kagabi, February 3, ilang oras bago siya lumipad patungong Japan kasama ang buo niyang pamilya para magbakasyon. Si Sharon kasi ang nag-induct ng bagong officers ng Entertainment Press Society o Enpress, isang grupo ng entertainment writers.

Tungkol sa pagbabakasyon nila sa Japan, sinabi ng Megastar na gusto raw kasi niyang ma-experience at makita ng kanyang mga anak ang snow.

“We’ll go mostly sa Northern ng Japan,” banggit niya. “All my children are leaving except for my little boy, kasi his papers are not yet finished. No passport pa. And then may niece Ella, daughter of Anthony and Maricel Pangilinan. And then, siyempre all my children, kasama si Kace [KC Concepcion] and two yaya.”

Ang tinutukoy na “little boy” ni Sharon ay ang ampon nila ng kanyang mister na si Senator Kiko Pangilinan.

Panliligaw ba sa kanyang muli ni Kiko ang pagpunta nila sa Japan?

“Hindi! Actually, gift ko sa kanya makapunta lang. Ayoko nang istorbohin ang budget! Talagang, ‘Sige na sweetheart!’” natatawang sabi ni Sharon

SHARON’S “LITTLE BOY.” Going back to her “little boy,” masasabing daig pa halos ni Sharon ang nanganak muli. Nanay na nanay nga siya kapag ang tungkol na sa adopted son niyang si Miguel, o Migs kung tawagin nila, ang usapan.

“Wonderful! I am so in love with him! Parang lumabas talaga sa akin. Sa kanya lang ako hindi tumaba!” natatawang biro niya. “Tapos, he’s smiling all the time now. He’s three months old. Yung focus niya, grabe, ganyan siya. At kapag kinakausap mo, humahalakhak.”

Sabi pa ni Sharon, naka-adjust na raw ang lahat ng kanyang mga anak—KC, Frankie, at Miel—sa kanilang new brother.

“Actually, from the beginning pa, sila yung mas excited. So, I was very thankful talaga.”

Hands-on din ba si Sharon sa kanyang baby boy?

“Oo,” mabilis niyang sagot. “Pero siyempre, we’re working. We tried to get him breastmilk from several choices na kilala, lately yung best friend ni Judy Ann [Santos]… We’re very grateful. Parang ginto sa amin.”

Katabi raw matulog ng dalawang girls niya na sina Frankie at Miel si Migs.

“They sleep in his room. His room is KC’s old room. So, inayos namin. Talagang nag-aagawan sila. Si Kace naman, she’s big ate. Siyempre, I had to ask her muna when we had him on the first day. Tinanong ko siya, ‘There’s a baby that I really like…’ Siya yung nagsabi na, ‘Mama, please keep him,’” kuwento ni Sharon.

Ayon pa kay Sharon, kamukha raw ni Migs sina Coco Martin at Sid Lucero.

“Actually, yun ang tipo niya, tisoy. Parang Pinoy na tsinito na maputi,”
pagmamalaki ni Sharon.
