Sharon Cuneta is making overtures to Gabby Lopez about returning to ABS-CBN after her relationship with TV5 began to turn sour.
The buzz is that Sharon had a meeting with TV5 CEO and President Ray Espinosa and the network exec told the Megastar straight to her face, “you didn’t deliver.” Mr. Espinosa was referring to the fact that Sharon had failed on her promise to re-invent her image to improve the ratings of her show.
The remark obviously peeved Sharon, and she was reported to have “made a face” at Mr. Espinosa. At that point, the meeting concluded.
The issue began to escalate after Sharon’s hubby, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, reportedly called up TV5 big boss Manny V. Pangilinan to talk things over. But MVP reportedly sided with Mr. Espinosa.
TV5 is repackaging many of its programs this year to give the network a fighting chance against ABS-CBN and GMA-7.
ABS-CBN, however, seems not inclined to take back the Megastar. Gabby Lopez reportedly told Sharon he was the wrong man to approach because Charo Santos-Concio is now network president.
Sharon is now left between a rock and a hard place.
