Gretchen Barretto reveals that Bea Alonzo tends to make sacrifices in her relationships and often ends up getting hurt.
Gretchen Barretto seemed to be aware of the controversies linking Bea Alonzo to Gerald Anderson because she was really protective of the young actress when some of the ABS-CBN reporters visited the set of Magkaribal last week. The actress admitted that she has advised Bea to be more careful when dealing with matters of the heart. "Sabi ko sa kanya you have to love yourself. Kasi si Bea loving and nagsa-sacrifice niya sarili niya and I want her to love herself more than anyone else. Sabi ko save for yourself. Pero kung naging shoulder to cry on niya ba ako? So far wala pa namang ganon. Lahat naman kinakaya," Gretchen said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
Gretchen also encouraged Bea to widen her horizons especially when they go their separate ways after Magkaribal. As it is, Bea can be reserved at times and is often busy with work to the point that she forgets to have fun as well. "Well not just love, but I guess life in itself nagtuturuan kami, nagtutulungan kami. Any advice that we can give each other binibigay namin. Ang parati ko sinasabi sa kanya lalo na ngayon last taping namin, 'lsquo;Bebe 'lsquo;di tayo palaging magkasama. So you'rsquo;re going to work iba na mga kasama. Isipin mo parati, you only one have life to live and you have to live your life to the fullest."
At the same time, Gretchen shared that she has also learned a lot from Bea in the past few months that they'rsquo;ve worked together. "Natutunan ko sa kanya yung makisama sa tao at yung mahalin yung industriya na ito. Nakita ko kung gaano niya kamahal ang industriya at ang trabaho niya at hindi siya nagrereklamo. Pero nagrereklamo pa rin ako kasi pag 2 am na gusto ko na mag-cut off na kasi gusto ko matulog. Siya kahit 5 am na hindi 'rsquo;yan magrereklamo kahit kulang sa tulog."
