Sharon clarifies Kiko’s position on her dinner with Duterte
Even though her husband Senator Kiko Pangilinan is known as an opposition senator, netizens were surprised when Special Assistant to the President Bong Go posted snaps of the megastar Sharon Cuneta and her brother Chet having a private dinner with President Duterte in Malacanang.
Go shared that the party indulged in some sardines and shared some laughter but did not disclose why the singer and actress was invited to the Palace.
Got home before sunrise then my hubby woke up to start his day. Di pa ko nakakatanggal ng make-up cos I was excitedly making him kuwento about the President and kuya and our friends and how much fun we had. He’s so chill and happy that kuya and I are happy! Di naman personal ang di nila pagkakasundo sa pulitika, sabi nga ni Tatay Digong kanina eh – they respect each other even if they disagree on certain things. Well – that’s why it’s nice that we live in a free country. Politics? Temporary. My Dad was the President’s good friend? Hey – deal closed! Blessed to have a hubby like my dork.😊☀🌝⭐🥛☕💖😴
The Facebook posts were met with mixed reactions from the public with some expressing disappointment at the actress’ relationship with Duterte despite her husband’s opposition to his policies.
However Sharon , in her own post explained that the President was a good friend of her dad and was her brother Chet’s all time idol. She did not elaborate on what went on at the dinner but said that the President eating some sardines made her crave for it too.
She also explained that despite her husband and the President’s political differences, the two statesmen respected each other’s views and did not take it personally so he did not keep her from spending time with her dad’s old friend. (ANGEL ONG)
