Sharon hints she’s going through something

STAR CIRCUIT - Ricky L. Calderon - The Freeman

Megastar Sharon Cuneta is back in town after her vacation in the United States. She arrived August 1 and is now on a 10-day quarantine.

In an Instagram post, Sharon said she is staying in the same building as their home but on the other half where the hotel is.

“I cannot even see high up to our balcony where I wished yesterday that I would be able to even just see my babies and Kiko waving at me,” she wrote.

Sharon is asking for prayers because she is going through so much but did not elaborate on it, adding that no matter how good her life is she also experiences problems just like others.

But Sharon said the Lord has been good to her and she has lifted everything to Him and trusts Him completely. She acknowledges that everything will come to pass.

She is glad to be back because she missed her family and is excited to return to work.

This Friday, August 6, her latest movie “Revirginized” will be streamed on Vivamax. She is urging her fans to watch it so they can see a different version of her.


The tandem of Coco Martin and Julia Montes returns in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”

Julia is the new leading lady of Coco in the widely-followed action series which is now on its sixth year. She replaces Jane De Leon who bowed out of the series to prepare for the “Darna” TV series.

The TV reunion of Coco and Julia is a fitting prelude to the film they are doing for Cannes best director awardee Brillante Mendoza.

Surely their fans are very eager to watch them in a TV series since last seeing them on “Ikaw Lamang.”


The National Capital Region (NCR) will be placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) status from August 6 to 20 in an effort to counter the spread of the highly transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19. This is pursuant to Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Resolution 130-A approved by President Rodrigo Duterte.

During ECQ, film, music, and television production and all other production activities are not allowed. Other ECQ areas from August 1 to 7 are Iloilo City, Iloilo Province, Gingoog City, and Cagayan de Oro City.

From July 30 until August 5, NCR is under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) subject to heightened and additional restrictions, which allows film, music, and TV productions to operate with a maximum of 50 persons at any given time but must not exceed 100 persons all day.

“In as much as we are hoping for our film and audiovisual industry to bounce back from the many challenges due to the pandemic, production activities in ECQ areas need to be put on hold again as a preventive measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, especially its Delta variant,” said Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) Chairperson and CEO Liza Diño.

“As for areas under MECQ, GCQ, and MCQ, productions may continue provided that there is strict adherence to the operational capacities and health and safety protocols set by the government,” Diño added.

According to the Department of Trade and Industry Memorandum Circular No. 21-14, Series of 2021, film, music, and TV productions and activities are allowed to operate at 50 percent under modified ECQ (MECQ), while they are permitted to operate at 100 percent capacity under GCQ and modified GCQ (MGCQ).

The FDCP, through its Safe Filming Program, enjoins all film and audiovisual productions to abide by the government’s prescribed safety and health protocols amid the pandemic. Productions can register with the FDCP’s Safe Filming Program so that the national film agency may assist and guide them as they operate in the new normal.
