Megastar Sharon Cuneta announced that she would leave ABS-CBN after being a ‘Kapamilya’ for several decades.
In her social media post, Sharon revealed she had no existing contract with ABS-CBN.
Sharon, one of the country’s most-paid artists, blamed the franchise’s non-renewal on the television network.
“For the first time in all these decades, I don’t have a long-term contract with my station. I know it is a number of things that have caused this. We lost our franchise, the station has way too many stars now and we of the “old guard” have to give way. So while I will always be there when they need me and will always be grateful, I guess it is understandable that I for now consider myself a free agent.” she said.
Because she’s now a free agent, Sharon said that she would accept offers from other networks.
“It’s time I opened myself up to other stations that may need my services while always keeping my Kapamilya “duties,” if and when they come. One goes only where one is needed. (And no, wala pa akong nakakausap na kahit sino mula sa kahit anong istasyon, for the record lang po.) I love you, ABS-CBN. My memory and loyalty are unquestionable. But a girl’s gotta work where she can and where she’s wanted. See you again hopefully soon, whenever you may need me!” she stated.
Sharon also mentioned Coco Martin, Cory Vidanes, Carlo Katigbak and other officials of ABS-CBN to thank them.

Meanwhile, Sharon said that she’s open to even working with AllTV despite the criticisms being received by the network owned by Villar family from Kapamilya fans.
“Kahit naman saan basta matino trabaho. Kung saan ako kailangan at gusto. Kung may work naman sa ABS di ako aalis. Di naman ako umaalis naghihintay lang pero di naman kaya maghintay forever.” she said.
