Popular microblogging site Twitter has, for the nth time, bore witness to scathing words hurled this time by the Megastar Sharon Cuneta against the supporters of her daughter KC Concepcion’s ex-boyfriend Piolo Pascual, and user @KayChaCarl – an account reportedly associated with international singing sensation Charice’s mother Raquel Pempengco – against rookie singer Zendee Rose Tenerefe.
Sharon vs. Piolo’s fans
According to a report by ABS-CBNNews.com posted on Nov. 4, the posts from the Megastar were made on her now-locked account last Friday in response to bashers who she claimed were Pascual’s avid fans.
While the article did not specify how the argument began, it quoted Cuneta to have told users @Wayne4Emma, @itsmejjled, and @vanessaregina, “Hey you guys started it today. May isa syang fan na di pala marunong magbasa at ubod ng feeling na nagtweet sa akin na si Piolo daw ang topic namin! Go thru my timeline if u wanna know how ‘smart’ and bastos you guys are. Then leave us alone! Kung gano kabastos yang idol nyo ganun din kayo. Thank God nabuko ni KC! Hay Lord!”
The veteran actress-singer said that Pascual “should be thanking me” since she and her family “have been holding our tongues” since his and Concepcion’s controversial breakup a year ago.
Cuneta then warned the same @Wayne4Emma, “Don't push me.”
“Ang tagal na namin ni Kiko (husband Sen. Francis Pangilinan) at KC gusto sabihin lahat. At ipakita ang text msgs ni Piolo mo at ng isa pang tao na sinave lahat ni KC. OKAY? Have a nice life! Magsama-sama kayong maglambada. Chaka labada,” she said.
To user @jemkadoodles, Cuneta expressed frustration, saying, “Punong-puno na ako!!!!! Akala nila basta lang namin papalampasin ito? Matapos ko payagan na i-edit ang interview ni KC sa the buzz noon?!!! Abuso naman pala mga bastos sila eh!” referring to her daughter’s emotional TV interview aired on Nov. 27 last year, where she confirmed speculations of her split with the Kapamilya actor.
“Sorry pasensyahan na lang. At pag nagsalita kami, PIOLO, DAHIL SA FANS MO!!!!!!” Cuneta continued.
The following day, a more composed Cuneta posted a lengthy message in six parts to her followers, explaining and apologizing for her previous actions. Part of it read, “I will always protect KC... and though it is tempting to just blurt out what really happened that caused her the most pain in her relatively short life & caused her to cry probably a swimming pool of tears, because of her wishes that we try our best to keep our silence, I will leave them alone as long as they leave us alone...”
In the latter part of her message, Cuneta vowed, “But from here on, I WILL choose my battles.”
“Even if I sometimes am forced to speak the only kind of language they seem to understand, I realize that I was not raised just to do that & stoop to levels I never thought I'd stoop to...” she explained.
'Charice’s camp' vs. Zendee
Meanwhile, a certain @KayChaCarl – which was identified in a separate ABS-CBNNews.com report posed on Nov. 5 as the account “usually used by Charice’s mother, Raquel Pempengco” – has reportedly vented out unsavory remarks against Zendee, who rose to fame as the “random girl” caught on camera while singing at a mall’s videoke machine, and is now being compared to the international singing sensation.
The said Twitter account, however, has already been deleted as of this writing.
Nevertheless, the ABS-CBNNews.com report quoted the user as saying, “Ano ba naman yang mga balita na 'yan? I-compare ang anak ko sa singer na kumanta lang eh taob na daw...naakap lang taob na?
“’Di ba pwedeng mayakap muna sila ni Aling Oprah (Winfrey)? Ni Aling Celine (Dion)? At lumabas sa 'Glee'? At kumanta sa Madison (Square) Garden? At mapasama sa Chipmunks, maging top 4 sa BILLBOARD? Magkaroon ng 'Here Come's the Boom'? Bago itaob?” @KayChaCarl posted, enumerating some of the younger Pempengco's achievements in the international scene.
Zendee recently appeared on “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” the same program where Charice made her very first TV guesting in the US in 2007.
@KayChaCarl continued, “Naman...naman....naman...kain muna kayo ng Donya Maria Rice ni Mareng Michelle Gankee bago mag-isip ng ‘TAOB’ huh?”
The alleged older Pempengco also made it a point to reply to one praise made by a certain @annabellerama69 – not the well-known Gutierrez family matriarch – for Tenerefe.
“Sunday ngayon...ayoko mang ma-high blood pero mas okay na ngayon kesa malunisan ako...ANNABEL RAMA-di ba mahilig ka sa diamond? Bakit ang dila mo di mo rin lagyan? Nang matigil na sa pag-aalipusta ng kapwa mo...” @KayChaCarl ranted in part, also noting, “At i-retweet pa ng User ZEENDEE na kala mo ke gaganda niyo sagad naman ang pagpapabanat mo ANNABEL.”
“'Yan ba ang sinasabi niyong fan ni CHA si ZEENDEE? I-retweet kasi tuwang-tuwa xa sa papuri sa kanya? Dapat nagpasalamat xa...di pa xa sikat akala mo bitbit na nya ang OSCAR AWARDS...abah watch your step LADY becoz you're not too young anymore,” @KayChaCarl finished.
Meanwhile, Tenerefe posted on her Twitter account at 2:19 p.m. today, “Nasasaktan lang po ako kasi gusto kong makipag friend kay Charice taz ganito. Haiz.”
Based on Tenerefe’s tweet, “May nasabi naman kasing mganda yung tao kayanapansin ko at nagpasalamat, di ko na nga pinansin yung msg nya bout cha.pero yun,” it seemed now that @KayChaCarl was pushed to go on a Twitter rampage due to @annabellerama69’s post.
On her part, Tenerefe explained, “:'>Nakapag explain na ako :) its an accident to retweet instead na ifave,kasi finave ko lahat kahit nega bout saken,well.thanks2dem.”
“Kasi nga po nag SORRY na po diba? na aksidenteng lang yun? haay. wag na sana umabot pa kay Cha,” she said, adding that she has already deleted the retweeted post in question.
As of 4:30 p.m., Tenerefe’s most recent tweets on the subject read, “Hindi ko po alam na HATER ni @annabellerama69 si Cha,I thought nagbibigay lang siya ng opinyon. Nagpapalaki lang kayo ng gulo. PEACE NA YOW!” and "nirerespeto ko po yung mga taong ayaw sakin, kc un ang opinyon nila.un nmn talaga importante.RESPETO.Chaster ako,d ko nmn dineny un sa media."
