Megastar Sharon Cuneta has called on some people evil after they started to spread rumors that her husband Senator Francis Pangilinan and Sen. Riza Hontiveros were having an affair.
“Okay. Here is the truth. Kung anuman ang pinagdadaanan ko/namin ngayon, HINDI PO ITO KASALI DOON. There is no truth to the rumours going around that Kiko and Sen. Risa Hontiveros are having an affair (or held hands). Some people are evil. They have nothing better to do than ruin people’s lives,” said Cuneta on a lengthy post on Facebook.
Rumors said that Cuneta, 51, immediately left for the US after a photo of Pangilinan and Hontiveros which appeared to be holding surfaced on the internet.
But it appeared that the Pangilinan-Hontiveros viral picture was only altered and that the original image showed that the senators were not really holding hands.
“Wala bang mas matalino or mas challenging na paraan na hindi naman nakaiinsulto sa utak ng karamihan kung maninira ka rin lang ng kapwa?” she asked.
Cuneta added: “Kung noon pa, ngayon at bukas ay mapapatunayan kong may iba pang babae sa buhay ni Kiko, ito lang ang masasabi ko: Lahat ng tinahimik ko noong nasira ang first marriage ko, dahil ang pagpapalaki ng Mommy ko sa amin ay ang huwag pag-usapan sa publiko ang dapat ay pribado, at personal;
“Kaya napaka-paka-paka-pakabait ko noong mga araw na yon kahit na kung anu-anong pambabaligtad at kasinungalingan at paninira ang ginawa sa akin, dahil ganoon ang disenteng pagpapalaki sa amin. Nangibabaw ang dugo at turo ni Mommy sa pagkatao ko. (Ang Mommy ko, sosyal na jologs. Ang Daddy ko, jologs na pasosyal.)’
“Ngayon, after thirty years, nangingibabaw sa akin ang dugo ng Daddy ko. Cuneta ako. We are street-smart. My father had a Master’s Degree from the school of hard knocks. Do not even THINK about putting one over me. I shall NEVER allow it again;
“So if I am indeed going through anything now, IT DOES NOT INVOLVE A THIRD PARTY,” Cuneta said.
“I owe so much money (on very good investments not stupid stuff) and I have NO ONE IN THE WORLD TO HELP ME. I am probably the poorest, most cash-strapped billionaire you know (!). Etc., etc., etc. So much more, and you don’t know half of it. So I left Manila;
“Being somewhere else lets you see things from a whole different perspective. Can’t be effective as a mother, wife, sister, aunt, co-worker, friend, etc., etc., etc. if YOU yourself are lost and need to breathe. Siguro naman may karapatan din ako malungkot at mapagod?” Cuneta asked.
She added: “I should be retired and living off the fruits of my labor now, but instead, I work like a horse when what I should be doing is working only on what I wish to and only when I want to;”
“No one will save me from my concerns, mostly created by other people who, unlike me and some I work with now, call everything wrong “just business.” No more Daddy. Only God;”
“And my health and energy and will to work. My family. Friends and fans. These are all and I know for now they are more than enough. I am tired though I love what I do so much,” she said.
“I am tired. More inside than outside. But I am eternally grateful to God for His unbelievable blessings and am trying my best to be a good steward of them;”
“This is me. I am open and I don’t care. Take me or leave me. I’d rather show my heart than pretend I don’t have one,” added Cuneta, currently one of the mentors for reality show “The Voice Teen” on ABS-CBN.
Cuneta, who will also have a series of shows in the US, said that she will be coming home soon.
