MANILA – She may not have sided with Kris Aquino in her legal battle against businessman Nicko Falcis but the former TV host does not like calling Gretchen Barretto a “mistress.”
Aquino made this statement when she responded on Instagram to a netizen who called Barretto a mistress.
The Instagram user said Barretto should just stay off Aquino’s legal issues against Falcis and should just mind her own business.
Explaining at length her position on the matter, Aquino said: “Granted she may hate me - but don’t you think the 2 facing criminal charges are amplifying her in order to distract people’s anger from them? Why do you think hindi ako pumapatol sa kanya? Kasi hindi nya ninakawan ang mga anak ko.”
Aquino then requested the netizen not to call Barretto a mistress especially because her mom, late President Corazon Aquino, had a soft spot for Barretto’s partner, Tonyboy Cojuangco.
“At the end of the day, her daughter’s father is still my second cousin. His dad & my mom are 1st cousins. His lolo & my lolo are brothers. So dedma na lang sa rants because i love my mom & mom always had a soft spot for Tonyboy. So please follow my example? Para na lang sa memory ng mom ko,” she said.
