Angelica Panganiban says her recent reconciliation with Gretchen Barretto proves that all dispute can still be settled peacefully
During Angelica Panganiban'rsquo;s recent contract signing with Star Cinema, it was revealed that there are plans for a new teleserye for her and Gretchen Barretto slated for next year. Nothing is certain about this project at this time because Gretchen is still busy with her current top-rating teleserye Magkaribal while Angelica is shooting the comedy horror movie Bulong with Vhong Navarro. But Angelica confirmed that she had been informed about this proposed series and she had told her boyfriend Derek Ramsay about it. "Nabanggit lang siya sa akin. Sobra akong na-excite. Siyempre si Derek 'lsquo;yung una kong napagsabihan. Sabi ko, 'lsquo;Uy may chika ako sa 'lsquo;yo!'rsquo; Bakla talaga ako magkwento kay Derek. Natuwa siya, sabi niya sobrang mage-enjoy daw ako kasama si Ms. Gretchen. Sabi ko nga baka hindi na ituloy ng ABS-CBN 'lsquo;yung project kasi baka hindi na kami mag-shoot, magkwentuhan na lang kami buong araw sa set."
When asked how she feels about doing a teleserye with Gretchen, Angelica joked, "Papayag ako kapag naibigay na niya 'lsquo;yung red stilettos ko, ha ha ha! Wala pa rin e. Naghihintay ako. Ms. Gretchen, size six po ang paa ko. Gusto ko rin po sana mga 60,000 pesos and above, echoz!" This was in reference to Gretchen'rsquo;s joke in a TV interview wherein she said "I will not give her war, I will give her red stilettos." This happened following the end of the tension between them which was brought about by Angelica'rsquo;s feisty reaction to Gretchen'rsquo;s closeness to Derek who is the latter'rsquo;s leading man in Magkaribal.
Angelica went on to say that she believes that every dispute or disagreement can easily be settled if both parties are willing to extend a hand of reconciliation. "May rainbow after the rain, sabi sa song 'lsquo;di ba? Ganun naman talaga. Sa lahat ng bagay na may mga ganyang issues, kapag may gusot naaayos naman sa maayos na usapan, magandang paraan. Basta bukas ang isip mo sa ganung klaseng bagay."
The young actress, however, is still mum on the much-publicized war between her and Gretchen'rsquo;s younger sister Claudine Barretto. Angelica'rsquo;s lawyer recently sent a demand letter to Claudine, ordering the latter to retract her statements accusing Angelica of spreading malicious rumors against her. There have been reports that because of the serious threats that Claudine had sent to Angelica, the latter has hired bodyguards for her protection. During her contract signing with Star Cinema, Angelica refused to confirm if this was true. Nonetheless, a man who is said to be the hired personal security for Angelica was spotted nearby.
