After having her ex-boyfriend as a special guest in her show, Sharon Cuneta will again work with Richard Gomez in an upcoming show on TV5.
The Megastar's daily primetime tawa-serye, Madam Chairman, had its last taping day on Thursday, February 20. The show will air its finale episode on the Kapatid Network by February 28.
When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press visited Sharon on the set of her show, she says that she will miss portrying her character Bebeth, a mother who becomes a baranggay captain.
"Masakit sa dibdib, mabigat," admits Sharon.
"[Mamimiss ko], lahat, yung cast...yung role ko na si Bebeth.
"I think she helped me humanize me to my audience so I love her very much."
Sharon is impressed by the transformation that her character Bebeth went through during the course of their show.
"Tumapang na siya, hindi na siya natatakot na gawin ang trabaho niya. Hindi na siya naiilang sa tao at na-retain niya ang kanyang values and integrity.
"I think in this age na ating kinabibilangan ngayon, [its a reminder na] as a woman, you can have it all...you really can.
"Maybe not all at the same time but you can have it all.
"Plus sa ating henerasyon, medyo tumultuous ang ating political climate, I'd like to think that there will always be good politicians willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good."
WORKING ANEW WITH RICHARD GOMEZ. It will be recalled that Richard Gomez appeared as a special guest on Madam Chairman last January.

Sharon confirms that she will work with Richard in a new TV5 show titled My Pirated Family.
The Megastar reveals, "First time namin mag sitcom, first time naming magsama sa TV."
When asked if they are cast as husband and wife in the upcoming show, Sharon said no.
She describes their roles by saying, "Pareho kaming orphans na lumaking magkasama, parang aso't pusa na away ng away."
She considers their characters as "best frenemies."

It will star Ogie Alcasid, Alice Dixson, Gelli de Belen, Jojo Alejar, Bayani Agbayani, Wendell Ramos, and Mark Neumann.
