ACTRESS KC Concepcion is certain that her mother, Megastar Sharon Cuneta, will surpass difficulties with her weight gain and disappointments in her showbiz career.
KC said that her mother did not mention the issue to her during their last conversation.
“Nag-usap kami ni Mom and wala naman siyang na-mention sa akin na problem. Masaya nga yung talk nami sa phone nun,” she said.
Concepcion believes that the Facebook post of Sharon is intended for her loyal supporters.
“I feel na that open letter is Mom’s way of letting her fans know that she is still here, and she still cares for them. Sa lahat ng ginagawa ng mom ko, she always remembers her fans and wants them to be happy. It’s her way of saying she has not forgotten them,” she said.
As for Cuneta’s weight gain issue, Concepcion said it will take time but she is positive that her mom will get the hang of things.
“Her struggle to get back in shape is a long process, hindi naman ganun kadaling magpapayat to be honest,” she said.
The 29-year-old actress also thanked close friend, Judy Ann Santos, for the continuous love and support not just to her mom, but to their whole family.
“I am very thankful that Ate Juday has always been there for my mom, sincere siya sa friendship nya and she’s part of our family. Like Ate Juday, me, our family, friends and her loyal fans are all behind her 100 percent. Kaya niya yan!” she ended.
Earlier, Cuneta opened up on her Facebook account about being fat and admitted that she is going through mid-life crisis.
She wrote that she “let myself go and allowed myself to get fat and stay fat”. She became complacent and lost faith on herself.
“I was going through a mid-life crisis, the effects of which I could never have foreseen. My reaction to it was awful; I became rebellious because I hated myself for the way I looked and the time I continued to waste by not focusing and working on bettering my own person.”
“It was I who let myself become affected by the fact that I had turned 40, not my public.” (MNS)
