Following their big reconciliation after years of estrangement, Claudine Barretto is opening up about having a closer relationship with sister Gretchen Barretto. “Feeling ko when I’m with my sister now, parang I’m in love,” she said on Tonight With Boy Abunda. “Ang kulit namin kasi walang ibang nakikisali sa amin, so we can just be ourselves.”
Claudine said they haven’t talked about the past in detail, but that they agreed to talk to each other first if any issue comes up. “I know that everything she says or does, it always comes from a good place and hindi ko nakita 'yon dati.”
Asked if she prays for the reconciliation of the whole Barretto family, Claudine says, “You know, no, we don’t… Baby steps. If it’ll happen, it’ll happen, like what happened sa amin. But it will take a miracle para maayos.”
The actress, who is starring in this week’s Maalaala Mo Kaya, was asked if she would be willing to work with estranged husband, Raymart Santiago, in Ang Probinsyano. “Andoon ba siya? Ah, ‘pag wala na siya.”
Claudine revealed that she will be reuniting with Piolo Pascual in a new movie set in Florence and directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina. You’ll recall that Claudine and Piolo also worked together in destination movie Milan in 2004.
