Megastar Sharon Cuneta is coming home with a heavy heart as her husband Senator Kiko Pangilinan and Senate President Tito Sotto will be facing each other in the 2022 vice presidential race.
“I come home with a happy, but heavy heart. Two men I greatly love – one whom I have known since birth, and the other, one I exchanged solemn vows with 25 years ago, are about to vie for the second highest position in the country, and once again, I do not know what I could have done so wrong to find myself in the midst of two rocks. What could I, can I do?” Cuneta said on her Instagram post.

Despite close family ties, Tito and Kiko have been at odds politically.
“After this game called politics is over, that wounds are healed, loved ones do not doubt your love for them, and I and my sisters, especially, the only family I have left besides my own, find our way back to one another’s arms, unscathed and free of the pain our battlescars have brought us,” she said.
Cuneta treats Tito’s wife Helen Gamboa as her maternal aunt. Ciara Sotto, Tito’s daughter expressd disappointment over Kiko’s decision to run.
“It is most difficult for us in the periphery, who never imagined we would be in this position. May God bless us all. May God help me through this trying period… Please pray for all of us,” Cuneta said. (TDT)
