In a shocking moment during Ruffa Gutierrez’s endorsement launch, ever-vocal Annabelle Rama flatly claimed that she’s not willing to give her daughter’s boyfriend a chance to prove himself.
Recall that the consistently bickering mother-and-daughter’s recent spat stems from Annabelle’s disapproval of Ruffa’s current boyfriend Jordan Mouyal. This riff has led them not to talk to one another for a little while.
But recently things cooled down between them particularly during Ruffa’s brother, Elvis Gutierrez’s recent wedding. However reports have it that the two are not really on good terms just yet.
Annabelle, at the recently-concluded launch of whitening brand Cosmo Skin’s Collagen Drink and upgraded Glutathione Capsule, said, “Totoo ‘yan kasi kapag kinausap ko siya approve na ako sa mga ginagawa niya. Ayoko siyang kausapin para malaman niya na hindi pa rin ako approve hanggang ngayon. Ganon lang ‘yun.”
Although there was no clear mention that it was about her boyfriend, halfway through the event, Ruffa claimed that she understands where her mother is coming from. But she reiterated that the feisty talent manager tends to not give her and other people a chance to explain.
In reaction to this Annabelle blurted, “Anong klaseng chance ang sinasabi mo diyan?”
Annabelle stressed that Ruffa’s boyfriend won’t be able to win her over saying that, “Wala siyang dapat gawin, [siguro] bumalik siya kung saan siya galing. Tanong niyo kay Ruffa siguro mag-farmer na lang siya sa Paris dahil walang farmer sa Paris, day.”
In a separate interview with her, Ruffa corrected rumors that she and her Mommy are just faking their reconciliation for the sake of their reality show It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez saying that, “Nagkabati kami but hindi kami bffs.”
She related that it was actually her brother Elvis who pushed for them to kiss and make up.
“Wala. It was a joyous occasion and si Elvis naman, ‘yung brother ko na kinakasal, sabi niya ‘Magbati na kayo alang-alang sakin.’ So, good mood si Mommy so tinanggap niya ‘yung yakap ko at halik ko. So that was it hindi na kami masiyado pang nagusap after that. Pero hindi parin kami nagtatawagan 10 times a day. Medyo once every two days nagtatawagan na kami. So that’s a good start,” she explained.
At the same time, Ruffa addressed her mother’s alleged claim that their reconcialition was “forced.”
“Para siguro sa kanya pilit kasi ‘yung mga gusto niyang gawin ko, hindi ko pa magagawa and that’s it. Siguro at this point I would like to have that respect between us, ‘yung relationship between us. But in the end gusto kong makapag-decide pa rin ako on my own,” she ended.
