In the recently-concluded Star Magic Ball 2017 – touted as one of the most glamorous events in the local showbiz industry – a netizen thought that Claudine Barretto was Sharon Cuneta based on the pictures that immediately spread online.
According to a report by the Abante Tonite, Claudine was mistaken to be the “Megastar.” The source concluded that the netizen must’ve thought it such since the former “Teleserye Queen of ABS-CBN” has gained weight after her last appearance in public.
However, it cannot be denied that Claudine looked very beautiful on the event, whether she gained weight or not. The source reiterated that if one was mistaken as Sharon, then it means that one is very beautiful indeed.
Claudine Barretto was dressed to the nines in an elegant, silky black gown with glittering studs all over. Lots of netizens commented on the post and jokingly said that Claudine went to Star Magic Ball as “Sharon Cuneta.”
Here are the netizens’ comments about it:
Claudine’s appearance was a big deal because the last time she graced the event in 2009, she was still with her now-estranged husband, Raymart Santiago.
According to Philippine Entertainment Portal, she went in 2009 dressed in a one-shoulder purple column gown. On 2008, the year before that, she graced the event in a red column gown with embellished crystals on her waist.
Now, she attended the event in a full black gown with studs all over.
Meanwhile, Sharon did not go to the ball. According to a report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, she turned down the invitation that was given to her last-minute.
The source said:
“In her latest post she thanked ABS-CBN’s talent arm Star Magic for ‘delivering our invitation to your Ball one day before. Wish we could go, but I have nothing spectacular to wear and there obviously isn’t any more time.’”
The Megastar revealed:
“Sayang. I also had my assistant relay to Winnie yesterday when she asked for our address (no one in ABS knows my address?) that it was okay and unnecessary kasi nga wala nang oras.”
