Sharon Cuneta has been in the showbiz industry for a long time now, and she remains to be one of the most prominent actresses in the Philippines at present.
She was dubbed as the “Megastar,” which is very fitting because she is undeniably a very talented and versatile actress.
A lot of people are probably expecting that a Megastar like Sharon would be invited in this year’s Star Magic Ball, but she revealed on September 28 that she did not get an invite. However, she received the invitation the next day, September 29, but it was already too late since the event is on the 30th.
Sharon announced it on a post on her Facebook account, and on another post, she expressed her sentiments regarding the last minute invitation to the Star Magic Ball saying,
“I have to admit I am a bit hurt and quite insulted. Guess the saying isn’t always true. I just wanted to be with my big family. But then again, it’s just a ball. If it was a fundraiser, a trade show or whatever, Shawie would have always been #1 on the list. And she ALWAYS gives with all her heart. Party time? Shawie absent. I am sorry. I’m not plastic. And I KNOW my worth. I’m sure that is not lost on others either. And I will not go quietly into the night and put on a fake smile.”
She continued, “Shawie must remember not everyone who says they love her, does. A lot do, but not everyone. Even those she trusted the most. Sad but true. Not so naive anymore. I like to be surrounded by people who love, respect, and value me. Who wouldn’t, right?”
According to Sharon, “My heart is sad… But then again, Megastardom of almost 40 years came, with at least 20 of those being the queen of queens in showbiz, lording it over everyone — and all without the help of social media — or yes — having to attend any balls. Vicor and Viva (Daddy, Daddy Tito, Mama Mina, Boss Vic, Ate Baby Gil, my Sharonians, friends from the press, and other loving and helpful people) MADE me. I was ‘made’ before my beloved ABS-CBN pirated me from another station. And my star shone even brighter.”
And in the end she stated, “So though am hurt, ‘tampororot’ — I love my Kapamilya. But my heart is wearing a band-aid on it now. End of issue.”
