Although KC Concepcion is being linked to Jules Knight of the international boy group Blake, Sharon Cuneta says her daughter is not ready for a new relationship.
“Hindi ready, hindi ready talaga (si KC),” Sharon said during the press conference for her upcoming TV5 talk show “Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid.”
The Megastar explained that her failed relationship with Piolo Pascual has taught KC to be more “careful.”
“Si KC is, after the relationship with Piolo, hindi naman sa na-trauma, pero maingat,” Sharon said.
Although she describes Jules as “mabait,” Sharon adds that KC’s reservation comes from the fact that the singer is not based in the Philippines.
“Siyempre natatakot siya kasi, my God, kung saan saan magper-perform ito,” she said. “Kung mga artistang Pilipino nga e, nakakatakot. E kakagaling lang niya dito kay Piolo, biglang, baka mag times one million ang pain niya kung sakali.”
But will Sharon approve of Jules if KC’s friendship with the British singer turns serious?
“Okay lang sa akin kahit sino pa, basta mahalin ang anak ko. At mahalin lang ang anak ko,” she explained.
Nonetheless, Sharon said KC is “very happy” and has forgiven Piolo.
“KC is fine. I’m happy to tell you that she’s very, very happy now. Very, very happy now,” she said. “And she has forgiven, she has moved on from the Piolo issue. My prayer also is that mag-move on na rin yung mga sumama ang loob siguro that they broke up.”
Sharon admits that while she’s disappointed over Piolo when the break-up happened, she has likewise moved on.
“Nasaktan ako kasi mahal ko si PJ (Piolo) e. I really welcomed him with open arms,” she said. “Na-forgive ko na siya. Finorgive nga niya (KC) e, ako pa.”
Sharon also apologized to those affected by her comments regarding the issue, adding, “kung may nasabi ako, kasi ano ko naman yun, e. Pag anak ko na yung binabastos, magsasalita ako.”
If one is to look at her showbiz career, KC is obviously past the break-up issue. Besides her upcoming movie with Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsay, KC is slated to host “X Factor Philippines” on ABS-CBN. She also appeared on the covers of Rogue and Cosmopolitan magazines.
Does Sharon approve of her daughter’s sexy cover photos?
“Yung totoo, hindi,” she quipped. “Nung una kong nakita, yung cover lang ng ‘Rogue.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ay, kitang-kita, puwet ko yan.’ Tapos sabi ko, ‘Kumusta naman yung inside pages?’ Ang joke ko sa kanya was, ‘Did you remain your decent self or did you steal my future poses?’ Sabi niya, ‘I’m sorry, I stole your poses’.”
Sharon admits some of the magazine poses shocked her, prompting her to scold KC. But still, “Disente pa rin naman ang anak ko. Wala namang balak mag bold star!”
The Megastar’s new show, “Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid” premieres Monday, May 7 on TV5.
