Claudine Barretto Denounces Raymart Santiago And Her Sisters Anew

THE CLAUDINE BARRETTO saga continues. Folks say her tale of woes already has an “umay” factor, but she’s on the warpath once again. Last Sunday, she appeared in both showbiz talk shows, “Startalk” and “Buzz ng Bayan”. First, she claimed that her wedding to Raymart Santiago is fake. She said that before she and Raymart had a Christian wedding in Tagaytay on March 27, 2006, they already had a civil wedding with an Isabela mayor on May 2, 2004. But it was not registered at all.

“Sigu­ro nu’n pa lang, dapat natuto na ako, na hindi na ako nagpakasal kay Raymart ulit nu’ng March 27, 2006 dahil hindi tunay ‘yung kasal na ‘yun,” she said. “So, hindi lang ako ang naloko, kundi buong Pilipinas.”

But Raymart’s lawyer, Atty. Ruth Castelo, refutes this. “It wasn’t registered right away but napa-register din, so it’s not fake. Late registration lang, but it’s legitimate. Their Tagaytay wedding was requested by Claudine kasi gusto niya ng church wedding na makikita ng lahat. How can she say it’s fake when she even submitted a copy of their marriage contract when she filed a case of Permanent Protection Order again Raymart? She attached it, now she’ll say it’s fake?”

Then she denounced her own sisters Gretchen and Marjorie. She said she cannot see any emotion on Gretchen’s face because of botox injections. According to her, Gretchen told her: ‘Wala ka nang career! Baboy ka! Wala ka nang power! You will ne­ver be back in this industry. Magpakamatay ka na lang, Claudine!’

About her sister Marjorie, she declares: “Sa lahat-lahat ng tao, kay Marjorie ako pinaka­galit. Kasi, pinag-away niya kami ni Gretche­n. I said some painful things to Gretchen which I will forever regret. I always made life easy for my sister, for Marjorie. But she killed me the day na tinanggal niya ‘yung karapatan ko to see my nieces na pinalaki ko. Nakalimutan niya ako, ‘yung ako talaga. Pinatay ko na siya sa buhay ko. I would never ever do anything to hurt my nieces.”

Marjorie quickly sent a letter to Boy Abunda to answer Claudine’s harangue against her. First, about Claudine’s accusation that Marjorie came to her house with an ambulance and medical personnel with a straight jacket: “We were just trying to save your life. Dad and mom, please don’t deny the fact that the orders to rush Claudine to a hospital came from both of you. We did not have a straight jacket. That is a lie. Claudine, we were protecting you. We did not want you to die most especially in front of your children.”

Marjorie says she never hid her kids from Claudine. She added Claudine never made an attempt to call them, or see them, or borrow them. “Please don’t claim to love my children when, not too long ago, you tried so hard to destroy them.”

Claudine also claimed someone’s really trying to kill her. She was in their balcony when shots came from the vacant lot beside their house so she lied down on her tummy. First was three shots, then six shots. She says it’s the fourth attempt on her life. She also denied frequenting casinos and says it’s not true she had an affair with Atong Ang.

Honestly, we wish they’d all just keep quiet. But it seems that they somehow enjoy being feasted upon by the media and the public even if what they’re baring is all the shame and scandal in their family where no one wins and they all end up as losers.
