Claudine Barretto tells sister Gretchen not to meddle with her marriage

CLAUDINE BARRETTO is glad to be a guest in her husband Raymart Santiago’s hit show, “Bantatay”. “Nag-guest din naman siya sa drama show ko noon and also, our kids and I are really fans of ‘Bantatay’ as we watch it nightly,” she says when ‘Showbiz Central’ interviewed her on the show’s set in Subic. “So when they invited me sa show, I said yes agad to support my husband. But si James Blanco ang katambal ko rito. I play a vet who’ll help Bantay. Tuwang-tuwa nga mga anak namin when they learned I’ll appear with their dad.”

There are persistent rumors about the marital breakup of Raymart and Claudine? Raymart says their relationship remains as solid as ever. How does she feel about all this? “Paulit-ulit na nga, nakakapagod na. Somehow, kahit ayaw mo patulan, you get affected as friends call to ask kung totoo. So explain kang hindi.”

It’s said the insinuations about their alleged rocky marriage come from one of her own family members. When Gretchen was asked about it, her reply is she doesn’t want to say anything “dahil ayoko magsinungaling”, which implies that something is really wrong. “Para namang labas-masok siya sa bahay namin and she knows everything. It’s better kung ang sariling lovelife na lang niya ang pansinin niya, huwag na ang buhay namin.”
