Sharon Cuneta Transfer to TV5 draws mixed reaction

After months of speculation and Sharon's own admission that she wasn't even aware that a deal is being brokered by Viva Boss Vic del Rosario, Megastar Sharon Cuneta is now officially the newest acquisition of the Kapatid Network. In what is rumored to be a billion peso deal, Sharon is now set to lead the aggressive stride of TV5 as they move head on against the current media giants ABS-CBN and GMA 7. 

This move has drawn mixed reactions among the Megastar's supporters after the unsuccessful move of another ABS-CBN talent, Maricel Soriano. It is notable though that TV5 also hosted the well received comeback of another showbiz giant, Nora Aunor.

Prior to her move, Cuneta was a non-exclusive talent of ABS-CBN for 23 years. It is rumored that the deal is further prompted by the fact that TV5 owner Manny Pangilinan is a relative of Cuneta's husband, Senator Francis Pangilinan.

In her career, Cuneta is reputed to be a guaranteed box-office goldmine and one of the country's top product endorsers.
