Christian, Erik lend star power to Sharon Cuneta's new reality show

Blind item: This young actress is very controversial nowadays as she has picked up a fight with another young actress. The young actress who is perceived to be sweet and unassuming is actually a brat. She's not the type who'd do something if she doesn't feel like it, even if doing so would redound on her.

One writer witnessed how the young actress (she was still going steady then with a young actor) became "maldita" during an event held out of town. All other celebrities taking part in the event had gone out of their way to mingle with the crowd who had gathered for the event. But the young actress chose to bide her sweet time, choosing to exchange sweet nothings with her boyfriend.

When she finally decided to mingle with the crowd, she went around wearing dark eyeglasses. A fan who is obviously smitten with her, requested the young actress if she could remove her sunglasses.

"Miss, puwede mo ba tanggalin ang sunglasses mo para naman makita namin ang mga mata mo?" said the fan. But the young actress ignored her and did not bother to heed the request of the fan, who was shocked and saddened by the young actress' indifference.
