KC wants estranged parents to be friends, again

Whether the planned reunion movie of Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion pushes through or not, what’s important for KC Concepcion is for her estranged parents to finally become friends in real life.

“Of course, it will be great to see them on the big screen after a very long time. After all, they are one of the local ‘biz’s most popular love teams of all-time. Their fans will surely get delighted. It will be one momentous event,” she says.

As their daughter, how does she feel about the possibility of seeing them work together in a grand silver screen project?

“Honestly, I will feel a little awkward. Imagine, you’ll be watching your biological parents sharing the screen in 2017! And their last film as a screen tandem was in 1992 (Tayong Dalawa) when I was still young. But as I’ve said, it’ll be a grand treat for their fans!”

KC is confident that Sharon and Gabby won’t treat each other as enemy no matter what happens.

“Well, it’s because I’m here. I will always be their bridge being their only daughter. All I wish is for them to really become good friends eventually. For me, that’s the most important thing.”

As for her own love life, she admits everything is smooth-sailing at present between her and Azkal player Aly Borromeo.

“It’s a very positive relationship,” KC relates. “Of course, you have to look for a partner who is your perfect match---someone who won’t drain or tire you in the process. It’s essential that he is happy with your success. Aly is like that, the reason why my mom is vocal in saying that she likes him for me. He is spiritual as well which is one of my foremost considerations.”

Does it help that they are in different fields?

“Yes, I think it does. He’s busy with football while I’m pre-occupied with my showbiz commitments. What matters is that he understands the demands of my job in show business and vice-versa. In the world of sports, Aly is also a celebrity in his own right. I guess, we have a perfect balance!”

Many are curious if wedding bells are in the offing.

“When it comes to that, all I can say is that only time can tell. Let’s see what the future holds for the both of us,” KC ends.


Lauren Young is happy being a Kapuso. In fact, she just inked another three-year contract with them.

“Yes, it’s another three years,” she avers. “This 2017 is actually my fourth year with GMA. So far, so good. With them, work is consistent!”

How can she compare her stay in GMA with that of ABS-CBN?

“You know, I will never, ever say anything bad about the Kapamilya network because that was my first home and that’s where I learned how to act and learned how to do everything that I know now. But I guess it’s just… I feel like it’s in GMA where I need to be right now. This is where I’m comfortable right now. And I just really enjoy it here!”

After doing the remake of Marimar with her sister Maegan Young, Lauren is in the new GMA afternoon drama series titled Legally Blind with Janine Gutierrez.

“That’s right! Directed by Mr. Ricky Davao, we’re so happy because it’s doing well on its time slot. Apart from the consistent high ratings, we also get positive feedbacks from the viewers, story and acting-wise. All of us are very pleased with this development. Hope the public will continue to support the show because we have lots of surprises in store for them in the coming days,” Lauren states.
