Iglot to be concluded soon because of Claudine Barretto's marital problems

IT’S NOT TRUE that because of her marital problems, Claudine Barretto no longer wants to work. The truth is she has resumed taping for her GMA-7 soap, “Iglot”, and even went to its far location in Pampanga. She promised to be professional and finish it. But we heard GMA has decided to terminate it in two weeks.

Earlier, the cast members of “Time of Your Life” were told that it’s their show that have to end soon to give way to the new season of “Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown”. But with the personal problems encountered by Claudine, it’s now “Iglot” that will say goodbye and “Time of Your Life” will be further extended. As what usually happens in showbiz, since both Claudine and estranged husband Raymart Santiago both choose to keep quiet about their breakup, speculations as to the reasons behind it have cropped up. It’s said they’ve been separated for two months now and it’s Raymart who’s taking of their kids. Another camp says it’s Claudine who’s the aggrieved party because of Raymart’s involvement with Jennylyn Mercado when they were doing ‘Futbolilits”. Still another camp claims it’s Raymart who called it quits as he can no longer put up with all of his wife’s quirks. It’s said Claudine doesn’t see eye to eye even with Raymart’s mom, former actress Cielito Legaspi. All these are conjectures. We’ll only learn the truth once the couple themselves are ready to talk about what really happened.
