Sharon Cuneta was a confirmed guest to the ABS-CBN Ball, and in fact had her entire look ready for the charity event, but was nowhere to be seen on the red carpet and the ballroom come Saturday.
Cuneta, 52, had just finished her 40th anniversary concert at the Araneta Coliseum the day prior — which she said took a toll on her physical condition.
On Instagram late Saturday, the music veteran tagged her “glam team” as well as the designer of her dress to the ball, Jot Losa, in her explanation for having missed the Kapamilya gathering.
“The star who was invited to the ABS-CBN Ball thought last night that she was definitely going to be ready to go. Until she woke up this afternoon and her whole body was aching so much that she couldn’t walk straight,” she wrote.
Referring to herself in third person, she continued: “She forgot she wanted to go to the ball after singing, standing, dancing, moving for hours on stage last night!”
Cuneta said she planned to recover in time for work the following day, Sunday.
Re-posting a photo of the Santiago brothers, most of whom she has worked with, Cuneta added: “Have fun, all my Kapamilya! I love you! God bless you all.”
