Gretchen Barretto insists that her sister Marjorie kept her from visiting ill father.
A few minutes after Marjorie Barretto’s tell-all interview on TV Patrol, Gretchen Barretto was ready for her replies to her sister’s accusations anew.
Not mincing words in addressing Marjorie, the actress released another clip from their father’s wake, stating that her younger sister was ‘evidently fuming’ when she was there.
She then shared another moment, this time with their mother Estrella “Inday” Barretto and insisted that she is not the one who had a nervous breakdown contrary to Marjorie’s claim that Gretchen was hysterical while she was chatting with President Rodrigo Duterte in the corner of the room.
“This emotion is not the kind to EXPLODE TO A HYSTERICAL STATE as BEING CLAIMED BY MARJORIE ITCH -Very [sic],” Gretchen wrote.
She then described the moment with her mother as a ‘precious moment.’
“This was a lovely, precious moment, it was about forgiveness, love and a promise to protect our new found mother/daughter relationship. It was a great opportunity to mend all the nasty words thrown to each other. It was a dream come true for me to finally hear the words ‘I love you’ from my mother (something I thought I would never hear till the day of our last breath.) Words are not enough to express the feeling (the blessing),” she captioned the post.
Gretchen also let the public know that she watched Marjorie’s interview on TV. She even posted a clip from the news show and advised her sister to ‘relax.’
“Relax, you are radiating with so much anger and envy and highly paranoid. (I do not have the power to orchestrate a grand entrance with the President of the Philippines.) PRRD was kind enough to offer to see me at the wake and only then, I was hoping you could control your anger and overwhelming fear of the truth,” she said.
Gretchen stood by her previous statement and insisted that she was not able to visit their ailing father at the hospital because she was also afraid of the tension they can create since Ex Caloocan City mayor Recom Echiverri was there too.
“I was not allowed to go to the hospital because of your outbursts and because there will be more tension for me to see EX MAYOR ECHIVERRI (who Claudine will file a molestation case against right after the 40th day. The attack of your father, as you say happened (as told to me by our mother is because you ARRANGED a lunch party for dad to spite mom for being on Claudine side (you did not invite mom and that caused a huge dispute between our parents and the rest is history. Let’s stick to each point so people will better understand THE TRUTH),” she stated.
In the end, Gretchen said, “I have replied to all her allegations point by point. Mr. Atong Ang gave me a call to say he has contacted the press and for me to give him the time to speak. For now let’s all see how all these unfolds. Go Marjorie Itchy-very. You have done a great job exposing your true colors.”
