Claudine Defends Gretchen in Atong Ang Rumor; Is a Reconciliation Coming?

It seems the ice wall between estranged sisters Claudine and Gretchen Barretto is thawing. This week, Claudine defended Gretchen amid rumors that she was seen being very ‘sweet’ to Atong Ang at the Gloria Maris Restaurant in Greenhills. But Claudine said there is absolutely nothing going on between the two.

Is a reconciliation between estranged sisters Gretchen and Claudine happening soon?

The rumor comes after other reports ‘linking’ Gretchen Barretto to Atong Ang – they were reportedly seen together in Bangkok last month, and their controversial VIP treatment at NAIA some time ago.

The latest rumor comes from Lolit Solis (yes, I know), who says waiters at Gloria Maris told her that Gretchen and Atong were there recently and were very sweet to each other. Here’s Lolit’s reports as posted on her Instagram:

“Usap-usapan ng mga waiters na kumain dun ng dinner si Gretchen Barretto at Atong Ang at nag-order ng peking duck at sweet na sweet, na si Atong ang gumagawa ng rolls para kay Gretchen. May mga kasama naman daw pero sobra raw ang sweetness nilang dalawa. Naloka kami dahil nung una kay Claudine nali-link si Atong, ngayon sa sister niyang si Gretchen. At isa pang ikinaloka ko, iyong waiter hindi makapaniwala na may ganun kalaking diamonds. Sabi niya talaga, ang lalaki ng bato parang hindi tutoo ang suot ni Gretchen…”

Interviewed by PEP for her comments, Claudine Barretto said there is nothing going on between the two and people should stop putting malice in what they see. Claudine adds that Atong Ang is a family friend who was once the boyfriend of her niece (Jayjay’s daughter). She is not sure if Gretchen and Atong Ang are in business together but she knows for a fact that Atong and Jayjay are.

Claudine also added that tony and Gretchen are so much in love and happy together, and the reason why they have lasted all these years is because Gretchen is loyal to her husband.

“Family friend siya,” said Claudine, referring to Atong Ang.

“Napakabuting tao ni Atong, wala akong masabi diyan.

“Mabuting kaibigan, kaya siguro naano… nabibigyan ng malisya.

“Huwag naman nilang lagyan ng malisya kasi hindi naman bawal makipagkaibigan sa lalaki, di ba?”

“At saka very much in love si Tony at si Gretchen.

“Huwag sana lagyan ng malisya ng ibang tao.

“I mean, hindi kami… ako talaga, mas alam ko, ang ate ko, kaya sila nagtagal ni Tonyboy dahil loyal at faithful ‘yan.

“Very faithful ‘yan.

“Masaya, masaya sila ngayon, yung pamilya nila.”

It will be recalled that Gretchen also defended Claudine a couple of weeks ago. After a follower praised her but body-shamed Claudine, this was what Gretchen wrote in reply, “Do not put anyone down while praising me.”

Is is a sign that we may see the estranged sisters forgiving each other and moving on to a better relationship? Hopefully so.

Note: Let us just add that Lolit Solis is no means credible so such rumors coming from her should not be believed. And let us point out also that the management of Gloria Maris in Greenhills should discipline their staff.
