KC Concepcion seemed to have finally released her angst she has been keeping in her heart all her life in an interview on TV5. A teaser of the show “Usapang Real Life” hosted by Luchi Cruz Valdez yet to air this Saturday, August 15, was posted by KC on her socmed account.
In that teaser, KC was caught teary-eyed while she was talking about her parents Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion.
KC in that interview says, “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, a lot of praying at ito ‘yung mga naiisip ko sa Usapang Real Life. Mama ko kasi, she has her own family. My papa also has his own family. They are both married, they both have children with their respective husband and wife.
“Ako lang kasi ‘yung nag-iisang anak nila na silang dalawa, so meron akong complex na gusto ko silang maging proud sa akin. Gusto ko na may gagawin ako na ikaka-proud nila. Gusto ko lang na maging proud sa akin,” KC now 35 said.
KC felt like crying after saying that, “Oh, naiiyak ako, naiiyak na ako” and her voice cracked.
Her mother veteran actress Sharon Cuneta must have seen her teaser so she immediately responded to her eldest daughter thru her IG account.
“My eldest, this baby girl, should never have been made to feel alone… She didn’t choose to be born into a family that started out with so much love only to be broken apart into a million pieces, like her mother’s heart… If I could, I would turn back the clock, and though I know the break-up still would have happened, I would try to shield her innocence from time. But the part of life I gave her isn’t mine. Yet I would…If only I could,” Sharon stated.
“Once, we were a family. And in a sense, whether we — or they — like it or not, we three still always will be, my Maria Kristina Cassandra Cuneta Concepcion. Papa and Mama will love you forever. You will always be our first child, the first who made us parents. If you’d had a brother, did you know your Papi would’ve named him Gavin? And your Mama, of course, would’ve insisted on another name or two for him. Just like you. I forget how many of you we planned to have. But I wouldn’t have minded having 5 more like you,” she added.
“You are not alone. If anything, there’s more of us on both sides for you! Still… I feel you anak.”
In the comment section, Sharon requested her followers to tag Gabby because they have blocked each other in their socmed accounts. “Someone please tag her Papa. We haven’t unblocked each other on IG ‘for world peace!’ Her supporters heeded her request but also asked her to unblock Gabby. Sharon Cuneta is now married to Sen. Kiko Pangilinan by whom she has two daughters and an adopted son, while Gabby has a daughter Garie by Grace Ibuna, another daughter Cloie by Jenny Syquia and two more daughters with her current partner Genevieve Gonzales. —Evelyn C.
