It was in February 2019 when Gretchen and Claudine revealed that they patched things up between them after not being on good terms for years.
Later, Gretchen was reunited with her mother, from whom she was estranged for several years as well, at the wake of her late father, whose death sparked a controversial feud involving her, Claudine, and their other sister, Marjorie.
The family patriarch passed away on October 15, 2019, at the age of 82.
