The ‘80s saw the fierce battle among moviedom’s most luminous actresses who also graced primetime TV with their beauty and talent via their own variety/musical shows. Vilma Santos, the Star for All Seasons, danced and sang on her Vilma! show. Sharon Cuneta, the Megastar, sang her heart out on The Sharon Cuneta Show (TSCS); Nora Aunor delighted her fans with her golden voice on Superstar. And Alma Moreno, who was once called the “Shining Star,” wowed the viewers with her sexy dance numbers on Loveli-Ness. Those were shows that featured these superstars as hosts and performers. Those were the times when these showbiz dames, along with PBA cagers, were staples for the viewing public, just as soap operas are mainstays in Filipinos’ households nowadays.
