WOW… The Barreto War is now getting bigger and bigger. First it was Marjorie, Gretchen and Claudine. Then their Mother (Inday) joined and issued a statement defending Claudine and calling Gretchen a Liar.. Now? Here comes another Barreto ~ Joaquin. He is the non showbiz brother of the Barreto sisters.
Tinawag ni Joaquin ang letter ng kanilang ina na nailathala sa column ni Ricky Lo na “shocking” at hurtful.”
Patuloy niya, “But what bothers me most is that while she attacks my sister, Gretchen, and pictures her as evil personified, she seems to have forgotten the truth.
“Mom, as you have gone out of [your] way to answer the issues that Claudine ought to answer for herself, maybe it is high time to reflect on things and address these concerns as well.
“You have lifted Claudine on a pedestal as the teleserye queen and labelled Gretchen nothing but an ST queen.
“But who took over the role of her parents, worked at the age of 12 and gave up her education to put her siblings to school?
“Who put food on the table, paid for the rent, electricity and hospital bills when dad suffered from his heart condition at least two times?
“Did you ever once stop her from doing all that because you loved her and wanted to protect her just like what you are now doing for Claudine?”
“We all know the truth about Claudine’s condition.
“Gretchen never threatened about having her’ ‘padampot.’ Whatever for?
“May I remind you that it was you and dad who had her put in a hospital because you wanted to save her from destroying herself.
“Yes, Claudine is going through rough times. Again.
“And if you truly love her, then you should take concrete steps to save her rather than hitting Gretchen simply because she is standing up to Claudine.”
“You claimed that Gretchen has been calling Claudine’s children names to her face.
“But how is that ever possible when Gretchen had long stopped taking Claudine’s calls?
“Hasn’t Claudine changed her mobile number many times while still owning many prepaid sim cards as well?”
Ipinagtanggol din ni Joaquin si Gretchen sa diumano’y pagpaparinig nito kay Claudine sa Instagram dahil hindi raw ito masaya sa pagpasok ng pamangking si Julia Barretto, anak ni Marjorie, sa Star Magic, ang talent arm ng ABS-CBN.
Aniya, “On the contrary, it was Claudine who repeatedly said she was going to make an expose.
“On what? We were clueless until bashing began on Instagram, which was why Gretchen came to the rescue of Julia.
“If there is anyone who cared more for her niece, we all know it is Gretchen, as she has proven when she chose to protect me and my siblings for a long, long time.
“This explains exactly why, as you said, we never complained about our childhood.”
Sa huli, nakiusap si Joaquin na itigil na ng ina ang paninira nito kay Gretchen bago pa masira ang kanilang pamilya.
Aniya, “[Please] put a stop to this before our family totally falls apart while there is still something to save.”

I don’t know what happened and why another Barreto is joining this mess. This is one of the reasons why I love the Philippine Showbiz. It’s exciting and more fun. :D
Anyway, I always think that mothers know their children well. It’s hard to know who is telling the truth but let’s just wait and see as this REAL LIFE DRAMA of SHOWBIZ PERSONALITIES turns another episode in the following days.
