After their longstanding feud, sisters Gretchen and Claudine Barretto are now closer. During their Instagram live session, they shared how they started to bury the hatchet and build a new relationship.
“When I saw Claudine, she was just the most humble little girl. I saw the Claudine that I wished to see,” Gretchen said.
“There was a time I always said, ‘Parang si Clau, pakiramdam ko parang patay na.’ Kasi nandyan siya pero hindi siya ‘yun. Parang iba ‘yung ugali,” she added.
Gretchen then said that the day they met again, she saw the old Claudine who was ‘very humble’ and ‘very sweet.’
“She said, ‘I love you. Forgive me, I missed you’ and I found myself uttering the same thing,” she said.
“It’s something I could not admit to anybody, I couldn’t even talk about Claudine for the longest time but that day I found myself just uttering the truth. No pride, no whatsoever. I wasn’t thinking of whatever happened in the past. All I remember was I held her in my arms…I just embraced her and I said ‘I’m sorry.’”
Gretchen also shared what she learned from their public feud.
“I’m also sorry because talagang pag masama ang loob mo we tend to say hurtful things and what I learned is that you can never erase that you cannot take that back. Good thing she forgave me and I forgave her and that’s what’s important.”
She also addressed those who doubt their newly mended relationship and said, “Sa lahat po ng mga kung anu-anong sinasabi na plastic [kami], honestly…”
Claudine continued and said, “makulit lang kami together talaga.”
Gretchen then said that she also met her nieces and nephew with Claudine.
“I met Sabina, Saint, and Quia. You know parang I’m starting to have a relationship with them.”
