Sharon looks to define her legacy with “Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid”!

For her first project under her billion-peso five-year contract with TV5, Sharon Cuneta will host and co-produce a daily talk show that will carry her name and, she hopes, will define her legacy.

“I wanted my name on my show again. It was TV5 that gave it to me,” the megastar said Wednesday in a media conference on the set of “Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid” at TV5’s Delta Theater in Quezon City.

Sharon opened up on a wide range of issues that have hounded her transfer to TV5 in November after more than 23 years with ABS-CBN.

What rankled most, she said, was the opinion that her decision was all about the price tag, which represents the biggest TV deal for any Filipino artist.

“Nasaktan ako kasi some people thought it was about the one billion,” she confessed.

“Masakit na tinawag akong mukhang pera. Pinaghirapan ko naman ito for more than 30 years.”

She said her net income, after all the commissions and salaries due her managers and staff, as well as the taxes that make her a favorite of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, would be “the same amount, more or less” she was earning from her ABS-CBN contract.

Sharon then quoted TV5 big boss Manny V. Pangilinan as having told her she was easily worth double.

After being in the limelight since she was 12, the 46-year-old singer-actress can’t be faulted for being concerned with her legacy—a word she mentioned several times during the conference.

She believes “Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid,” a gabfest in the “Oprah” mold, is the perfect vehicle for it.

The show took a while to put together because, she said she and the TV5 top brass wanted to ensure its high quality.

“They wanted na en grande at elegante ang show. They’re very involved in the production,” she said of TV5 president Ray Espinosa, vice president Bobby Barreiro, and head for creative and entertainment production Perci Intalan.

In the same breath, Sharon acknowledged the creative freedom at her disposal as a co-producer of the program.

For this purpose she put up her own company, Mega Productions, Inc., with her personal manager, Sandra Chavez, and long-time adviser Vic del Rosario of Viva Entertainment.

Her writers left their cushy jobs in ABS-CBN and GMA to join her.

“I have the best writers, the best staff on TV,” she boasted.

She cited as proof of the program’s quality the quandary she and the TV5 management have faced in deciding which will be the pilot among the 15 episodes they have taped so far.

“Wala pa rin kaming napipili. Paganda kasi nang paganda ang mga episodes,” she said.

She has been taping three shows three times a week.

The show will feature “regular people with extraordinary stories” and will run the gamut of human emotions.

“It’s filled with surprises. May mga episodes na tawa lang kami ng tawa. And then next time naman iyak kami ng iyak,” she said.

When she does have celebrities as guests, Sharon makes sure they come for an in-depth discussion, “not just to promote something.”

The celebrity guest list so far includes Derek Ramsay, Jannelle Manahan, Amy Perez, Bing Loyzaga, Katrina Halili, Vicki Belo and daughter Crystalle Henares, Cristy Fermin, Lolit Solis, and Lourd de Veyra.

Sharon is candid about her efforts to emulate Oprah Winfrey.

“Anybody who does a talk show like this wants to be like her. And it’s mainly because of the number of lives she has been able to touch,” she said.

Her idols in the gabfest format also include Barbara Walters and Ellen DeGeneres.

The daily afternoon show will premiere on May 7. The time slot will be announced later.

Sharon Cuneta on her Twitter haters: “that haters have always been, and always will be – insignificant.”!

Sharon Cuneta just couldn’t resist twitting again, as she took a rest from the micro blogging site just over two days!

She rested from what believed to be bullying from Piolo Pascual‘s fans that got her ire , but then she realized after a short hiatus something more important.

Sharon tweeted:

I am going to go on resting first tweeties. But after one day I remembered that haters have always been, and always will be – insignificant. After all, they’ve been around for over 34 years of my career. Pahinga lang ako para maalala ko pa ang mga baka nakalimutan ko na during my journey to stardom. Remember I love you and always will. I am reminded of God’s love everyday because of people like you who love me and fight for me. Remember – haters NEVER win. Signing out now. Goodnight and sleep tight in God’s embrace. God loves us!

Welcome back Mega Star to Twitter world again!

Sharon Cuneta is being bullied by Piolo Pasual’s fans on Twitter!

Actress Sharon Cuneta is currently taking a break from Twitter since she is being bullied by Piolo Pascual die hard fans on the site!


Sharon Cuneta answers her follower “Miles Away” on twitter agreeing o her comment:

“Kung hindi Kapamilya die-hard, maka-Piolo lang. Wala namang galit sa amin na ibang tao.”

As we all know Sharon Cuneta is one of the stars on Twitter who tweets herself on hand and over the weekend she was being bullied by bashers tirades against her and daughter KC Concepcion.

Here are some of her Tweets answering what the bashers are accusing her and her daughter:

On the break up of KC and Piolo, and that she and KC are  ”abortionist”:

“Akusahan kayo ng anak mong abortionista tapos huwag ko patulan? Ano hahayaan ko pang ikalat nila? Sobra mga ‘yan. Mga bastos at walang modo. Dudumi ng bibig at pagkatao. Gawain siguro nila.”

On what really made her almost lost her top (On Piolo P bashers):

“Since you won’t stop bashing me and my daughter and it’s all the same to you — maybe it’s time I talk and tell the whole REAL story. Okay? Tutal pareho lang eh. Tahimik kami bash kayo ng bash. Eh di kami naman kaya!”

On defending KC:

“KC never did anything to hurt him. He hurt her. And yes, we KNOW his fans are bashing her. We never start, we just react. Be careful. Nananahimik pa kami sa lagay na yan. Tama na kasi we should all just move on,” she said in another tweet.

In referring to Piolo:

“He can’t say anything about KC [because] he has nothing he can say. He’s a ‘gentleman’ for his image, not necessarily [because] he doesn’t want to hurt anybody. Let’s be honest and fair here. If no one bashes us, we couldn’t care less about his life [because] we’ve moved on. Kawawa naman ang anak ko. ‘Di nga nagsasalita si Piolo, but his army of bashers do all the dirty work for him. We’re not bad people. But neither are we stupid.”

As of the press time Sharon is on Twitter hiatus.
