MANILA, Philippines – Megastar Sharon Cuneta turned to microblogging site Twitter anew to defend herself against a a blind item, which she believes is about her.

In a series of tweets just a little past midnight on Sunday, Cuneta said she just wants to asure her followers that there is no truth to what was posted in the said article.

“I want to assure you all that there is absolutely no truth to this. Halos lahat ng pinopost niya sa akin since last year kasinungalingan. Proof? Balikan nyo at basahin ang mga naunang posts nya about me na blind items pa pero obvious naman ako,” she tweeted.

Cuneta was reportedly reacting to a post in the blog site fashionpulis.com, which said in an entry that a show of a certain controversial host or “CH” has not improved its ratings after a month of airing.

The blog post also added that the management has already instructed the production to plan the show’s remaining episodes.

The Megastar said she consistently gets text messages from her bosses, who are “very happy with the show.”

Cuneta even explained that just like any new show, her program also struggled in the beginning “because televiewers have developed habits that you have to pray you are able to change and it takes time to get used to watching a new show regularly until it too, becomes a habit of viewers.”

Lashing back at the writer of the blog entry, Cuneta said she is totally clueless as to why she is always the site’s blind item subject.

“Nagtatrabaho lang naman po ako, hindi ko pa sya nami-meet kaya di ko alam kung sino ang nag-uutos/nagrerequest/nagbabayad? sa kanya para laging ako ang favorite nyang i-blind item. Ang dami na nyang nasulat na di nangyari kasi di totoo. Di ko alam kung may source siya or ang special lang ng imagination nya. Or baka dream nya maging si Ricky Lo or Dolly Ann?” Cuneta said.

The veteran actress, however, maintained she does not get affected by these kinds of issues because she has already gone through a lot of controversies during her stay in the entertainment industry.

“Matagal na ako sa showbiz, I’ve been thru worse. And besides, di naman ako ang nagmumukhang katawa-tawa at masama pag lumalabas na ang totoo. Never ako pumatol sa posts nya noon pa. May mga nagtweet lang na nag-aalala sa mga naisulat nyang bago kaya nilinaw ko,” she said.

Cuneta said she just thought her fans deserved to hear her side straight from her.
