Sharon Cuneta reveals ex-boyfriend Rowell Santiago is her TOTGA
Sharon Cuneta has admitted that she considers her former onscreen partner and ex-boyfriend Rowell Santiago as her “TOTGA,” or “the one that got away.”
The Megastar made this admission while showing a throwback photo of herself with the actor-director on her Instagram page yesterday, Dec. 7.
“I can live without most everyone else (including any other ex) outside of my family, but I can never live without this boy in my life,” she said, referring to Santiago.
Cuneta described Santiago as one of her best friends as well as a great director and leading man. She then compared him to her husband, Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan.
“Like Kiko, his heart is so pure,” she told fans. “So decent. A true gentleman. Truly TOTGA.”

Previously, Cuneta admitted she had two TOTGAs, though she did not reveal who they were at the time. She also said in an online conversation with fans back in 2018 that Santiago is the only man whose heart she broke and that the names of her great loves start with the letter R.
Cuneta and Santiago were on screen partners back in the 1980s. They starred opposite each other in the films “Cross My Heart” and “Friends in Love,” among others. They started dating after Cuneta had broken up with actor Gabby Concepcion.
