After KC Concepcion missed her mother’s birthday celebration last Sunday on “ASAP” Sharon Cuneta finally address the speculations that surrounded it over the past couple of days by writing a lengthy message on her Instagram account last Wednesday, January 8.
Prior to this, KC apologized through a cryptic birthday greeting for her mom in an Instagram post and cited that she was not able to make it due to some personal reasons.
The Megastar first thanked her daughter for her IG message but said that she would’ve loved it more if KC has done in a more personal way by doing the things she used to do before or if she made it to ASAP since she felt really emotional because her eldest daughter was not able to attend her birthday celebration.
“My dearest Kristina, thank you for posting this. I would have loved it most if I could have had a tight hug and heard a ‘Happy Birthday, my Mama. I love you.’ Or a beautiful heartfelt card like those you used to write to me. Or a phone call. I even would’ve settled for a private text message. But I guess this came after my birthday celebration on A.S.A.P. last Sunday when I became more emotional because you, my eldest, weren’t there”
Sharon added that she feels that her eldest daughter distanced herself away from their family.
“I do not even have an idea where you are. I usually don’t. I follow you on IG of course, but as your Mama I wish I didn’t have to find out where you are or what you’re doing at the same time as the public does. I haven’t really known for years now what has been going on with you, in your life, in your heart. I would think that the first person you would talk to would be your Mama. I feel that you have distanced yourself from us who truly love you when we all hunger for our family to be complete”
The Megastar added.
Followed by sharing how much she misses the kind of closeness that the two of them used to have in the past, as well as KC’s younger siblings who were longing for their big sister’s love.
“We are six in the family, my baby. And when we are only five, I never feel complete. Since my childhood until the death of Tatay, and then Mita, I have NEVER spent a Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, or any of their birthdays away from them. Sa pamilya natin, dapat sinasalubong ang Pasko at Bagong Taon ng magkakasama. At sana ang mga mahahalagang okasyon lalo ang mga milestones like Kakie’s High School graduation, kumpleto tayo.
“Family is all that matters, Tina. Even your Papa, Gabby, has always been a good son and brother. You have embraced your half-sisters on your Pa’s side, Cloie and Gary, and are close to them. I know you have love for Kakie, Yellie and Gugie. Especially since you all came from my tummy, your first home, and Gugie was sent from heaven above. But they hunger for their Big Ate’s love. Your protection if and when they are bullied or mistreated, your loving ear when they need you to listen to whatever may be bothering them, and all those things little siblings need from their Ate.
“I myself hunger for the closeness we once had. We are just always here, waiting for you. We missed you at Christmas Eve dinner and only ate because it was too late and we were starving”
The Megastar pointed out that she never failed to spend special occasions with her own family in the past, but this is something that KC is doing lately since she failed to spend the next following occasions with them, right after Christmas.
“And I only found out days after that you were at Mama Helen’s house the whole time. But we are thankful that you still were able to come before midnight. I needed comfort because it had been a truly not-so-happy season for me; a very sad one in fact. So I was happy that you came. It was a happy night for us all, di ba? We missed you at Christmas lunch with the Pangilinans. We missed you on New Year’s Eve, on New Year’s Day, and I certainly missed you on my birthday.
“Where were you, anak? What were you doing? Why not even a text from you? I know you are in your 30s now and are free to do what you want. But if I hadn’t even bothered calling my Mommy when she was alive to tell her where I was going or what I was doing, I know she would’ve found it unforgivable, unacceptable.
“Anak, huwag kang lumayo sa amin. Kiko has loved and raised you with me since you were 9. Each of your sisters, and your brother, Dad – and I – crave a relationship with you. Buhay ko ang mga anak ko. Sure Kakie is my best friend because she talks to me the most and we are on the same wavelength. Pero even Miel and Miguel know na walang in na hindi mahal ang kanyang mga anak ng pantay-pantay. Kahit talikuran kayong lahat ng mundo, si Mama ang matitira. Siempre sasabihan ko pa rin kayo kung may mali kayong ginagawa, pero never ko kayong titigilang mahalin, bumaligtad man ang mundo, isa lang ang Mama ninyo.
“I love you very much, Kristina. I missed you at ASAP. But I missed you more the next day, my actual birthday. And last Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day. I miss you too often nowadays, it seems. Because 99% of the time I have no idea where you are, what you’re doing, and more importantly, HOW you are,”
