celebrity sisters Claudine and Gretchen Barretto -- facebook fan page
MANILA, Philippines -- After a long-waged feud that reportedly ended last year, are celebrity sisters Gretchen and Claudine Barretto fighting again?
The matter was brought up by "Showbiz Inside Report" co-host Ogie Diaz Saturday during the live telecast of the entertainment talk show, shortly after a taped interview of co-host Carmina Villaroel with former actress Marjorie Barretto and daughter Julia aired.
Marjorie is also a sister to Claudine and Gretchen. The 16-year-old Julia, following in the footsteps of her mom and aunts, was recently launched as part of Star Magic Circle Batch 2013.
"Ang nakakalungkot dito, sana rin 'yung mga kapatid ni Julia, kung mag-aartista, sana pagdating ng araw hindi sila mag-away," Diaz said.
Explaining his remark, the entertainment reporter said, "Kasi may mga Barretto rin na nag-aaway, katulad nito... katulad si Gretchen..."
"Ewan ko kung totoo itong nai-post ni Gretchen na parang hindi sila masyadong ano ni Claudine, pero parinig lang. Pero parang si Claudine din ang pinaparinggan e," he said.
Diaz was referring to comments allegedly made by Gretchen in a post on the image-sharing service Instagram, which supposedly criticized her younger sister Claudine.
"E, Diyos ko, obvious ba... Ayaw ko nang basahin, medyo off 'to eh, medyo sensitive," he said.
The alleged comments on Instagram of both Gretchen and Marjorie, which supposedly addressed Claudine, have since been deleted.
"Sana lang, kung totoo man na magkagalit sina Gretchen at si Claudine, magkasundo na kayo, para hindi na 'yan mamana ng mga pamangkin," Diaz said.
Last year, Claudine and Gretchen reportedly reconciled after years of estrangement, which stemmed from a feud among their family members and in-laws.
