The Megastar took to social media to explain that the rivalry between her husband and the President is not personal.
“Got home before sunrise then my hubby woke up to start his day.
“Di pa ko nakakatanggal ng make-up cos I was excitedly making him kuwento about the President and kuya and our friends and how much fun we had.
“He’s so chill and happy that kuya and I are happy! Di naman personal ang di nila pagkakasundo sa pulitika, sabi nga ni Tatay Digong kanina eh - they respect each other even if they disagree on certain things.
“Well - that’s why it’s nice that we live in a free country.
“Politics? Temporary. My Dad was the President’s good friend? Hey - deal closed! Blessed to have a hubby like my dork,” Sharon wrote.
Sharon Cuneta has four children.
The father of her eldest, KC Concepcion, is Sharon’s former husband Gabby Concepcion.
