- Sharon Cuneta was hurt for her friends Zsa Zsa Padilla and Conrad Onglao who decided to part ways
- She was the one who set them up on a blind date
- She asked to give Padilla space and allow her to grieve
“Megastar” Sharon Cuneta played an important role in the relationship of Zsa Zsa Padilla and Conrad Onglao since she was the one who set them up on a blind date. Now that Padilla and Onglao broke up, which was confirmed by Padilla herself, Cuneta admitted she felt hurt for the two since they are both her friends.
ABS-CBN News quoted her as saying: “I am hurt for Zsa Zsa since she has been my friend for 20 more years, also Conrad who’s also a friend. But you know they had a good relationship and Zsa Zsa is a decent woman.“
Cuneta asked to let Padilla grieve.
“You have to respect and give her space, if it’s something that ended,” she said.
The former couple got engaged August last year after more than a year of dating.
Padilla disclosed in an interview: “He grabbed my hand and placed the ring there and asked me to marry him.”
At first, she thought Onglao was joking.
“But then when I saw his face, he doesn’t get very emotional. I’ve been with him a year. I’ve never seen him cry and he was crying. So, I was like, ‘Oh, my God! This is serious,” she added.
Last March, Padilla said during the press conference for the ABS-CBN TV series “The Story of Us” that she has yet to finalize all the details for their wedding.
She said that their wedding will happen this year but it will be a surprise even for the groom.
“Sabi ko, akong bahala,” she added.
[I told him I’ll take care of it.]
Before Onglao, Padilla was the partner of the late Comedy King Dolphy for over two decades. She was previously married to Modesto Tatlonghari, the father of Karylle. They separated in 1987.
