Sen. Grace Poe Says She'll Continue To Show Love & Respect To Cousin Sheryl Cruz Who Said She's Not Ripe For The Presidency

SHERYL CRUZ was lambasted on the net by irate supporters of Sen. Grace Poe after she said that the daughter of her aunt, Susan Roces, is not yet ripe for the presidency. Some folks she’s just sour graping because she didn’t get the inheritance she expected from the late FPJ. “Bakit siya umaasa? Hindi naman siya anak, pamangkin lang siya,” says one of their relatives.

“Wala namang kasundo yang si Sheryl,” says another detractor. “Maski mga kamag-anak niya sa Cruz side, like her cousins na sina Geneva and Sunshine, sumama loob sa kanya when her father died in 2001 and she didn’t even bother to come home at all from the U.S.”

“Wala rin siyang makasundong manager,” says another non-Sheryl fan. “Binitiwan siya ni Dolor Guevarra dahil unprofessional siya. Lumipat siya kay Rams David but he also just dropped her for being difficult.”

We heard even Manay Ichu Maceda gave her a dressing down when Manay heard Sheryl was taping for ‘Buena Familia’ at the Sampaguita Pictures compound.

But Sen. Grace herself is very conciliatory and forgiving about what Sheryl did to her. “I want to thank Sheryl for her opinion and concern for us,” she says. “As a member of our family, we will continue to give her the love and respect she deserves.”

Even Susan Roces just shrugged her shoulders when asked about it. “Well, that is her opinion Let’s just respect her. There’s nothing else for me to say about that.”

But her own elder brother, former actor Renzo Cruz, countered Sheryl’s opinion. He declared their entire clan is actually supporting the daughter of FPJ.
