THERE ARE some celebrities who don’t really have a flourishing career in showbiz but are visible only on social media. One of them is KC Concepcion. Most people thought then that when she joined showbiz, she’ll be a very big star, but this didn’t happen.

Now, she no longer has any movie or TV show and you can just follow here in her Instagram account. Folks say she didn’t make it because both her parents are still active and big stars in local showbiz, Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion.

As one wag says: “Wala pang anak ng artista na mas sumikat sa parents nila, except for Fernando Poe, Jr., but when he joined showbiz, his father, Fernando Poe, Sr., has already passed. Si Luis Manzano, sumikat kasi he chose to specialize on hosting, not acting, like his parents.”

Stars with still popular parents who tried showbiz but had a hard time making a name for themselves include the sons of Rudy Fernandez, Alma Moreno and Lorna Tolentino, the kids of Robin Padilla, the children of Christopher de Leon and the son of Piolo Pascual.

The kids of a well known actor who did make a name for themselves are Ruffa Gutierrez and Richard Gutierrez, but this at the time when their dad, Eddie Gutierrez, was already playing father roles.

Going back to KC Concepcion, although she has no showbiz projects, she’s still visible online. Some reporters follow her social media accounts and they quickly report her entries in their own columns. KC is now 35 years old, so we don’t think she can still stage a showbiz comeback.

She should just be thankful that the public is interested in her and follow her internet accounts. They show they care for her us they quickly bash her when she seems to be getting fat.

KC says this can’t be help because she has polycystic ovary syndrome o PCOS, a hormonal problem that affect the organs storing a woman’s eggs, but it can also affect the rest of the body.

In an interview with Tim Yap on youtube, she said: “I want to be super open about this because it’s something I also want to talk about in the future. I was diagnosed with PCOS and that caused me to gain so much weight.  I always want to be at my best. I want to be physically fit. I want to look good. I want to get my body tight.

"When I look good, I feel good and that’s what you serve people on screen. I know a lot of women who have it. It’s quite common in a way, but not a lot of people talk about it.”

Lately, there were speculations that she doesn’t get along well with her mom, Sharon Cuneta, but KC assured netizens that they have a good relationship.

“She sends a lot of food and I also send her food from time to time. So that's our way of expressing love is through gifts. I think my mom and I, we have the same love language where we like to give each other, gifts. I miss her and I love her so much. She's an amazing mom.

"At the end of the day, lahat ng nangyayari sa amin is amongst that should stay in the family. And just like any other family, no one is perfect. We go through bumps along the way just like any other family. The only difference is we are so public. I don't really like talking problems in public.

"I'm not a perfect daughter, no one is perfect. The important thing is what happens now and I think the more important part is to both embrace each other's imperfections, forgive and be loving towards each other. That's the best thing we all can do.”

KC also says the lockdown has given her time to review her past relationships. “I think staying at home makes you think so much. Parang naisip ko, I have my own fears. I have my own imperfections. I have my own attitude. I have my own pace. I always try to look at where I went wrong, not just the other person.

"Dati, play, play then thank you, next. Now, nag-mature na ako. Feeling ko now, it’s like how can I be valuable to you? That’s the kind of relationship I want na. I want somebody that is established, somebody that is respected, somebody that has values that resonate with me, somebody who actually cares and shows that and is able to express that.

"I want to be able to be of value to the people that are in my life. I’m still super close to the men I had in my life because I think, we were part of each other’s lives. And if they didn’t treat me bad and we didn’t break up badly, they will always be part of my life. They will always be a chapter in my life. And I appreciate and value them still.”

Guys linked to her before were Piolo Pascual, Paulo Avelino, athlete Aly Borromeo and Frenchman Pierre Plassart. She was also linked to Apl de Ap of Black Eyed Peas but she has never confirmed it.
