MANILA, Philippines – Actress Cristine Reyes publicly apologized to her sister, actress Ara Mina, on Sunday amid their tiff which started in April.

In a live interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Reyes said she is sincerely sorry if she had offended Mina.

“I’m sorry and I would like to apologize if ever I offended you, sumama ang loob mo sa akin. I tried my best na pumunta sa iyo, alam mo iyan ate. Sinabi ko pa iyan sa ‘yo na kung gusto mo luluhod ako sa harapan mo,” she said.

It would be recalled that Reyes allegedly asked Mina to turn over an SUV as payment for the remaining P1.8-million balance for a Quezon City townhouse they bought in 2011 for their mother. If not, Reyes allegedly threatened that she will continue her personal attacks against her.

Mina ealier demanded through her counter-affidavit that Reyes issue a public apology for her to retract the case.

On Sunday, Reyes said she is hoping that Mina would eventually forgive her so they could live a happy and quiet life as a family again.

“Sana lumambot na ang puso mo sa akin para maayos na itong gulo, para tahimik na, para sa ikakatahimik ng pamilya natin,” she said.

Reyes, who admitted she is holding her emotions, said she remains hopeful that she and Mina could iron things out for the sake of their mother.

Asked what she has realized from this experience, Reyes said: “Sa lahat ng experiences, troubles, problems sa buhay, na-realize ko na huwag tayong susuko. Bawat problema, may natututunan ako. Doon ako tumitibay. Kasama siya sa buhay talaga eh. Boring ang buhay kapag walang problema, lahat tayo dumadaan diyan.”
