Sharon Cuneta says she is ‘semi-retired,’ still has ‘a few promises and contracts to fulfill’
After announcing that she will be “retiring soon,” Sharon Cuneta assured fans that she was not going to “instantly disappear” from the limelight.
“Kids, please don’t be sad! I still have a few promises and contracts to fulfill,” the Megastar said on Instagram yesterday, Oct. 12.
“Just seeing as we don’t know yet when this pandemic is leaving or when a vaccine is gonna be discovered, I am preparing for my retirement. I am semi-retired as it is!”
She said she already had plans to retire after getting married to husband Sen. Kiko Pangilinan when she was 30 years old in 1996, but that “it wasn’t time yet.”
“Don’t worry about me — my parents always prepared me for this. And I’ve been getting ready to retire for another 2 decades,” she said.
“I’m not just gonna instantly disappear! I owe you that much,” she told her devoted Sharonians. “But please ready yourselves, okay? I love you. God bless you all!”
Reactions came not only from fans but also from friends in show biz, like actress Judy Ann Santos, who wrote in the comments section, “Ate!! Paano na pelikula [nating] tatlo ni [Regine Velasquez]!!!??!”
(Big sis! What about our movie with Regine Velasquez?)
Cuneta quipped, “Pano iyan sa bahay mo na lang (How is that, we’ll shoot at your house)?! Ngek! Hahaha!”
The actress-singer has spent over 40 years in the biz, finding success and a loyal following in her ventures in music, TV and movies since her teens. /ra
