Her success in the movies (53 starring roles), television (9 shows) and recording (40 albums ) make her one of the most well-known Filipino entertainer of all time. Her popularity has translated well into the field of advertising, where she is among the highest paid and most effective Filipino celebrity endorsers.

On 22nd November 2011, following months of speculations, Sharon’s big move to TV5 was made official by signing a staggering 1 Billion contract with the Kapatid Network – the highest ever paid to a Filipino artist. She parted ways with ABS-CBN, her home network of 24 years, on a cordial note.

Since moving to TV5, Sharon only had 3 short-lived shows: Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid, Madam Chairman, and The Mega and the Songwriter. She is set to star in another tawa-serye, My Pirated Family, opposite former love team partner Richard Gomez.

Sharon Cuneta publicly married Gabby Concepcion in 1984, which was later annulled due to irreconcilable differences. Their wedding ceremony became the most attended nuptial in Philippine history, which was held at the Manila Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, and was personally sponsored by Ferdinand Marcos and various high-ranking Roman Catholic prelates of the Republic of the Philippines. Together, they have a daughter, Kristina Cassandra Concepcion, now also an actress more popularly known as KC Concepcion. Cuneta is currently married to former senator Kiko Pangilinan and have two biological daughters and an adopted son.
