‘Now you’ve asked for war’: Sharon Cuneta blasts Ronald Carballo for ‘vicious’ statements
Sharon Cuneta has put entertainment writer and movie director Ronald C. Carballo on blast for what she says are years of smearing her name.
The Megastar has been posting tirades against Carballo since yesterday, June 20, on Facebook and Instagram for his “vicious, totally untrue posts about me.”
Cuneta questioned a statement Carballo made on Facebook, where he said one who is decent would not destroy another person’s name.
“At IKAW PA ang malakas ang loob magsabi nito ha! Samantalang MALINAW NA PANINIRANG PURI ANG PINAGGAGAWA MO SA AKIN,” she said on Instagram yesterday.
(And you have the nerve to say this. Meanwhile it is clear that defamation is what you are doing to me.)
“YOU DELETED YOUR VICIOUS, TOTALLY UNTRUE POSTS ABOUT ME,” she said, noting that her fans had screenshots of the posts.
She added that because he involved her kids, “NOW YOU’VE ASKED FOR WAR.”
“I WILL EXHAUST EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO GIVE YOU EXACTLY WHAT YOU DESERVE,” she declared.
‘I think he needs professional help’
Cuneta posted a screenshot of one of the alleged posts that Carballo had made against her via Instagram today, June 21.
“Natahimik na ang ina mula nakapag-asawa ng unggoy at may ungguyita na rin mga anak na mana sa unggoy na tatay,” the post said.
(The mother has been silenced since she married a monkey and she has kids who are little monkeys taking after their father.)
It also criticized the “eldest” daughter for having multiple men in her life.
“Just a ‘sample’ of how low a former friend has gone, whose chance at a showbiz writing career was given to him by Viva Films during my promo for my first movie,” Cuneta said.
She said in the Instagram post that her family had treated him with “generosity” and that he was “sadly swallowed by the showbiz system when he finally experienced money and men because of his perceived ‘influence.’”
“Feeling ko kaya siya galit, kasi nung nawala ako sa kanya dahil nga bumaligtad ang ugali niya at natuto nang manggamit, manloko at manira ng kapwa, nawalan na siya ng kredibilidad,” she said.
(I feel like he is angry because when he lost me due to his changed attitude, and after he learned to use, cheat and destroy people, he lost credibility.)
“Sa nagdaang napakaraming taon, sinisiraan niya ako. Wala na pala akong saysay sa paningin niya pero ako ng ako ang sinusulat niya!” she said.
(For the past several years, he has been destroying me. I apparently don’t have any relevance to him anymore but he keeps writing about me!)
“I think hindi lang masama ang ugali nito (I don’t think he just has a bad attitude). I think he needs professional help,” she observed.
“Kahihiyan ng bading nation ang pinagsasabi at lalo na ang mga pinaggagawa nitong taong ito,” she added.
(He is a shame to the gay nation with what he says and even more for what this person does.)
Cuneta first called out Carballo in a Facebook post yesterday, where she said he should have confronted her a long time ago rather than post blind items.
“Dapat hinarap mo ako noon pa. [‘Di] ka naman natatakot kahit kanino kaya puro BLIND ITEMS lang ang kaya mo [‘di] ba?” she wrote on Facebook. “Ako HINDI AKO DUWAG, RONALD. HINDI MO YATA ALAM [‘YON] KASI NGA ILANG DEKADA NA KITANG NILAYUAN.”
(You should have confronted me back then. You’re not afraid of anyone, right? Which is why all you can write are blind items. Me, I am not a coward, Ronald. I don’t think you know that because I have distanced myself from you for so many decades.)
She also described how she remembered him in her teens, back when they were still friends.
“Bakit hindi na tayo magkaibigan? Hindi ba noon sasanto santo ka? Napakabait mo?” she said. “Hanggang sa mahumaling ka sa lalaki at pera at kung anu-ano na ang pinagsusulat mo kahit di mo na ako nakakausap dahil ang akala ng mga tao ‘close’ pa rin tayo?”
(Why are we not friends anymore? Weren’t you like a saint before? So kind? Until you had a liking for men and money and you wrote things even if we’re no longer speaking because people thought we were still “close?”)
Cuneta also fired back at him for claiming that she was using “gimmicks” to gain attention. She further denied his claims that her projects in recent years were “flops.”
“At anong GIMIK ang pinagsasabi mong que nagpapaawa ako, pinapahamak ang anak, walanghiya ako, flop lahat ng pelikula ko at pati ang announcement kong retirement ay GIMIK LAHAT?!!! Kailan ako GUMAMIT NG GIMIK SA LOOB NG 42 YEARS KO SA SHOWBIZ?”
(And what gimmick are you talking about, that I ask for pity, that I hurt my child, that I have no shame, that my movies are flops and even my retirement announcement, that these are all gimmicks? When did I use a gimmick in my 42 years in showbiz?)
“Sana bumalik ka sa pagdarasal mula sa puso mo, nang magkaroon ka ng kapayapaan at kaligayahan na totoo,” she said. “Walang klaseng fame o fortune o lalaki ang makakapagdulot [sa ‘yo] non. Bumalik ka sa Ronald na una kong nakilala. Nakakamiss [‘yon].”
(I hope that you go back to praying from your heart, that you earn true peace and happiness. No fame or fortune or man will give you that. Go back to the Ronald I first knew. That I miss.) JB
