Kanina sa The Buzz ay masusing hinimay ang bawat statements mula sa dalawang kampo ng Barretto family na nagbabanggan - Gretchen, with her brother Joaquin versus their mother Inday and siblings Claudine and Gia.
For the first time ay ipinaabot ni Gretchen through The Buzz ang kanyang saloobin sa ngayon. She is currently hurting daw, kaya ayaw niya munang magbigay ng statement o sumagot sa mga akusasyon ng kanyang ina. Pero dahil daw sa nangyayari, ay parang bumabalik sa kanya ang sakit na naramdaman niya dahil sa kanyang pamilya maraming taon na ang nakakaraan. Sa tanong naman kung sa tingin niya ay magkakaayos din sila, she said : "I have no answer for a possibility of reconciliation."
Pero tila hindi pa matatapos ang gulo sa pamilya nila dahil during The Buzz kanina, ay nagpadala rin ng bago niyang statement si Mommy Inday, na ina-address si Gretchen. Her latest statement :
Gretchen stop putting yourself up by putting us down!
And just remember that "my house which you call less than your criteria was" what gave you a roof over your head, food on your stomach, clothes on your back -When You Were a Nobody And had Nothing!
All you wanted was to hitch your wagon to a star - and the world gave you the Moon as well! You are not contented you still have to bash us with lies and pasikat up to when dad and I are about to close our eyes!
The trouble with lies is , you have to tell more lies to back it up!
Issues and allegations!1- Gretchen stopped schooling to stand as breadwinner of the family - to pay for the rent, electricity food and schooling of her siblings!
Answer- at age 12 modeled for a line of clothing- 1000php per pictorial! At 14 , she did movie, 14 Going Steady- 20thou per project, followed by 2 more movies I cannot remember - 1 or 2 more endorsements, maybe of the same amount- a total of 100,000php! By the time she joined showbiz 3 of her siblings were already done with school and well on their way!
She was only with us for 3 years, by the time she changed into adult roles and earning better, she was already living in with Loyzaga and our family were already in Iloilo to spend little time withy 90-yr-old mother! And daddy wanted to go into prawn farming!
We may not be rich by her standard but we were never poor! Our family had a comfortable lifestyle long before she was born and up tothe present! No way will we let a 12-yr-old child work for us! Family and friend can attest to that!
