MANILA, Philippines – Veteran actress Helen Gamboa became emotional on Tuesday as she shared how happy she is now that all is well between her and niece Sharon Cuneta.

In a live interview on “The Buzz,” Gamboa said she believes nothing can really outweigh one’s love for his or her own family.

“For me, ang importante ang pamilya lalo na kung pag-uusapan natin dito ay pagmamahal. Grabe ang pagmamahal ko kay Sharon, hindi na kayang sukatin,” she said.

Gamboa said she never really considered her tiff with Cuneta a problem because she believes that they would eventually talk thing over.

“Para sa akin naman, hindi naman siya talaga naging napakalaking problema. Wala namang hindi naaayos sa magandang pag-uusap,” she said.

Gamboa said she wholeheartedly accepted Cuneta when she reached out to her through text.

Gamboa, however, said they haven’t had time to personally meet yet because of their busy work schedules.

“Noong nag-text na siya sa akin, naglambing na sa akin. Readily I accepted it na parang walang nangyari. Hindi pa kami nagkikita pero sabi ko nga sa kanya siguro dapat mag-usap kami ng personal para malinawan lahat lahat,” she said.

Gamboa also shared that they all spared Cuneta’s mom of this issue because she is already ill.

“I never told her anything. Ang ate ko may sakit na so what’s the point in bringing up something like this? Ayaw ko siyang bigyan ng problema,” she said.

Asked what she is praying for now, she said: “I pray that she will still be the same as she was when we started her out as a little girl. Maski na she’s in her 40s now, naaalala ko pa rin noong maliit siya. Para sa akin, ganoon pa rin siya.”
