Sharon Cuneta revealed that she was supposed to be part of the 2018 ABS-CBN Christmas special that was taped at the Araneta Coliseum recently.
The Megastar disclosed that she got sick, which is why she was unable to sing at the TV special dubbed Family is Love: The 2018 Christmas Concert.
Here is Sharon's explanation that she posted on her Facebook page:
"Hi. I’m sorry I haven’t updated you in days. My body finally gave in to over-fatigue,& Kiko had to text my boss Ms. Cory Vidanes to tell her I had been vomiting & had come down with the flu, & as a result I couldn’t sing at the ABS-CBN Christmas Special taping.
"I started shooting my new movie Monday last werk in Baguio, not even a week after “3 Words to Forever” opened in theaters & before Baguio I was still doing promo work for it. I came home to Manila Friday to launch my album Sat.
"I weighed myself again today & have lost a total of 7 lbs. in two weeks without trying. Sa shooting madalas pag kainan na tinutulog ko na lang. Worse, I would actually forget to eat all day.
"I launched my album & realized only there that I didn’t eat at all. Everyday since, hihingi
ako ng breakfast pero makakain ko madalas halos gabi na. My team had to cancel lots of my previous commitments kasi bumagsak na talaga ako.
"Milagro nga kailan lang bumigay my body sa pagod at stress. Now I am still groggy from my meds & not feeling well but have a Rebisco event I am on my way to now. I cannot sing but I need to go there to thank them for their support for “3 Words...” Hilong-hilo.
"After tonight I’ll just have to get thru Frankie’s Debut and I’m done. Gusto ko matulog ng 1 week straight. Pasko pa naman.
"Please - say a prayer for me? I don’t want to be sick during the Holidays naman. Thanks so much & I hope all of you are okay. God bless you & I love you all."
