Actress-host Ruffa Gutierrez maintained that she has no enemies in local show business.
The Kapamilya star made this statement on Friday in response to a netizen who wished her continued friendship with Claudine Barretto following reports of a rift between her and the latter's sister, Gretchen Barretto.
"Sana ok kayo ni Claudine," commented a user in a video posted by Ruffa on Instagram, showing her with Claudine and Angel Aquino during a photo shoot for the 30th anniversary cover of local fashion magazine, Metro.
What an honor & privilege for me to be a part of this extraordinary cover surrounded by ageless, strong, independent women who have made an impact in beauty and fashion throughout the years. ✨🙌🏻 Happy 30th Anniversary, Metro! ❤️❤️❤️ - - - It’s a grand homecoming!

"Ok ako sa lahat ng artista. Wala akong kaaway," replied Ruffa.
Responding to another comment who said they're glad to see Ruffa and Claudine in good terms, the former beauty queen wrote: "For the record, Claudine has always been sweet, polite, and kind to me and my family."
Ruffa's statement comes after her outspoken mother, actress-turned-talent manager Annabelle Rama, stated in an interview that she's willing to wage war against anyone who dares come after her children.
“Ang ina ang ilaw ng tahanan, gumagabay sa mga anak, ginagawa ang lahat para sa ikabubuti ng pamilya at higit sa lahat, pamilya ang laging unang iniisip.” ❤️ In 7 days, my mom @annabelleramaig celebrates her birthday. ✨🎂Today I would like to honor her and say that i am proud to be Annabelle’s daughter. A fiercely loyal wife, mother and friend. Thank you for all that you do for our family. Nag-iisa ka. 🙌🏻❤️ #AnnabellesDaughter #motherhood #familylove
"It's not worth it. Pero 'pag lumalaban siya, continue pa rin ako. Hindi naman ako magpapa-under maski kanino, ano?" Annabelle was quoted as saying in an interview with entertainment columnist Allan Diones during her 67th birthday celebration last Thursday, October 24.
"Ayoko nang magsalita pa kasi tumahimik naman siya, e. Kung hindi siya tumahimik, mas mahaba pa ang sasabihin ko," she added.
