Everyone is expecting the Barretto sisters will reunite on their father’s wake after years of estranged to each other.
Family is always a family no matter what they have been through, in times like this, their love and respect will take place to comfort each other.
But apparently, the Barretto sisters seem not yet open for reconciliation.
Last Wednesday, the eldest Barretto, Gretchen came to their father’s wake when President Duterte also came in to drop by.
Gretchen, who had long been estranged from her parents, sought to reconcile with her family, including mother Inday, she told ABS-CBN News in a statement.
“It was all so nice until Marjorie had a nervous breakdown,” she said, referring to the Wednesday incident.
She confirmed that President Rodrigo Duterte, who condoled with the family, “was asking Marjorie to shake my hand for the sake of respect of my father, but Marjorie was not happy that I was there to reunite with family.”
After the incident, Marjorie and other nieces of Gretchen reacted violently, which led to unexpected physical commotion inside the wake.
Claudine Barretto reportedly rushed to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City after sustaining an injury on her hand and complained of dizziness following the alleged confrontation with Marjorie, according to Ruby Baguhin, who brought the actress to the hospital.
According to Baguhin, Claudine was allegedly attacked by Marjorie. She also mentioned young actress Julia, Marjorie’s daughter, as being part of the confrontation.
Marjorie had earlier declined ABS-CBN News’ request to interview members of the family. She has yet to respond to a subsequent request for a statement, in light of her encounter with Gretchen the night prior.
Claudine and Gretchen first reconciled earlier this year after their 2013 fight over Claudine’s case over her ex-husband Raymart Santiago.
