Despite having a misunderstanding with her older sister Marjorie Barretto and her children, especially Julia Barretto, Claudine Barretto remains loyal to their family after she defended her 24-year-old niece Julia on the allegation that her career is failing.
According to Claudine, she did not think that Julia’s career would fall that easily despite the criticisms she receives.
“Alam naman ng lahat na masama ang loob ko kay Julia,” she began, correcting the term “pabagsak na” in the question. “Pagkakaintindi ko kasi she’s not just given the right projects. Even if wala pang tsismis kay Julia nun …we were all just waiting for the good project to come to her. Kasi ang problema ang dami nila, may Jadine, Kathniel, Lizquen, Joshua, ngayon Jurald… I’m just waiting.”
The actress added,
“Medyo nega nasusulat sa pamangkin ko pero at the end of the day, pamangkin ko pa rin yon, e! Di ako naniniwala na babagsak,”
“Kasi sa akin nangyari na ‘yan, ilang beses na, lalo na nung rebellious days ko. Si Julia hindi bumagsak, naging nega lang siya. We just need a good project for her because dugong Barretto ‘yan, magaling at may dugo din ni Dennis Padilla yan, magaling din!”
Marjorie Barretto told Toni Gonzaga that even if she and her two sisters have a misunderstanding, she constantly prays for peace for each of them.
“And when some people who think na, ‘Who am I to say that, I’m not in good terms with my two other sisters.’ It’s not out of hate. It’s out of… peace muna. Parang there’s just more peace when, in that space.
““Parang there’s just too much pain na it’s just gonna be more peaceful kung hindi bati. But it doesn’t mean that karga-karga ko araw-araw, na nagigising akong galit na galit sa kanila. Hindi, e, hindi ganun, e.”
“Definitely, not from a place of hate. Well, I don’t look back at it na masakit pa yung dibdib ko or I won’t wish ill of them.
“Di ba ‘pag galit ka, ‘pag hate mo yung tao, di ba? Gusto mo masamang mangyari. Wala ako dun. It’s not coming from a place of unforgiveness. I just want peace.”
