There have been rumors in showbiz about Sharon Cuneta setting up buffets complete with lechon in her dressing room. The Megastar laughed and said it’s not true, “The lechon is not true. That happened siguro may nagregalo.”
The buffet is for her staff, “’Pag medyo alam naming gagabihin o aabutan ng lunch or dinner, tatanungin ko na ‘Ano’ng gusto niyo kainin? Ilista n’yo na lang.’ I’ll just give money para magpabili. You have to take care of your people,” she explained to Boy Abunda in an episode of TWBA.
There are also stories about her generosity and that she gifts her friends with diamonds. “Hindi naman,” she reacted. “Once lang, one of my good friends. May nagbebenta sa akin ng alahas. Sabi ko, ‘Anong magandang hikaw dito?’ ‘Ito, cute!’ ‘Sige, gift ko na ‘yan sayo.’ Pero hindi naman sobrang diamonds.”
Sharon showed the rings she was wearing during the interview; one was from her mom Elaine Cuneta and the other one she bought when she was in her 20s.
Tito Boy brought up Sharon’s surprise to Regine Velasquez during their concert. The icons were onstage when the Megastar surprised the Asia’s Songbird with a diamond ring that reportedly amounts to one million pesos. Asked why she’s so generous to her friends, Sharon said, “It’s something shown to me by example by my parents.”
