Charice & Claudine's Family Problems Continue Over The New Year

IT’S A new year but old issues continue to haunt some showbiz families. Charice’s Mommy Raquel Pempengco denounced her once again and her girlfriend, Alyssa Quijano. Her mom said she doesn’t like Alyssa for her because at the time they were growing up and would be competing in singing contests together, Alyssa and her mom used to make fun of Charice. Charice and Alyssa became close when Charice became Alyssa’s mentor in “The X Factor Philippines”.

“Sinisiraan nila noon at nilalait si Charice, pinapa-out nila sa ‘Little Big Star’ (the ABS-CBN talent search where Charice placed as runner up to Sam Concepcion). Alam ni Charice yan kaya sabi ko, sana, ibang babae na lang, wag lang yan,” she said on TV, adding that Alyssa is just using Charice and doesn’t really love her. "Ang ikinasasama lang ng loob ko, madali niya lang nakalimutan lahat ng ginawa ko para sa kanya. Bakit ngayon sinasabi niya na wala akong nagawa, na may pangalawa na siyang pamilya at doon siya masaya."

Mommy Raquel admits she also has a misunderstanding with her own mom, Mrs. Tess Relucio, who revealed that Charice tried committing suicide last year. She says when her mom asks something from her, “at hindi ko naibibigay, ayun, sinisiraan ako.”

Meantime, in the continuing saga of the Barretto Family, Claudine Barretto’s lawyer, Atty. Ferdie Topacio, said that her parents, Miguel and Inday Barretto, are formally filing charges against elder siblings Gretchen and Jayjay for testifying against her and siding with her ex-husband Raymart Santiago. It’s 2014, and there is certainly no peace in these households.
