MANILA, Philippines - Megastar Sharon Cuneta said she has no plans to pursue a political career.

During the "Tanong All U Can Portion" of "Showbiz News Ngayon" on Thursday, Cuneta said she wants stay away from the complicated world of politics.

She said, “I thank God I have no plans to enter politics. Komplikado na enough as it is ang politika sa bansa natin.”

Instead of dwelling on the thought of running for public office, Cuneta said she'd rather stay where she is now and hope for the best for our country.

“Ang ginagawa ko, imbes na isipin ay idasal na maayos na ang bansa more than anything.”

Meanwhile, when asked about her plans of having another baby, Cuneta said that she had actually given it a lot of thoughts.

“Plans, [I have] plenty, but reality won’t allow it,” she said.

She has already talked about it with her husband Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, but it seems that he too has decided to stop trying.

“Puwede pa sana eh. Pinag-uusapan namin ‘yan ni Kiko. [Sabi ko,] ‘I want,’ [pero sabi niya,] ‘Enough na sweetheart.’”

After losing as much as 20 pounds, Cuneta said that her diet continues to maintain her figure. “Cut down lang talaga sa carbo(hydrates) sa sweets, yung mga usual na culprit ng pagpapataba,” she said.

When asked about her thoughts on doing a possible television series, on the other hand, Cuneta said she is keeping her doors open.

“Aaralin ko ‘yan (paggawa ng television series) baka naman sakaling matuloy dahil interested din ako for the first time in my life.”
