By Bernie Franco
Gretchen’s comment comes as a response to allegations that Claudine is "insecure" of Angel Locsin. News has it that Claudine and Angel recently had a tussle in a parlor. There have been different versions of the incident but the said clash was allegedly due to endorsement deals, specifically Angel being the new endorser of a clothes line, which previously belonged to Claudine.
"Claudine is Claudine wala siyang karapatan at dahilan na ma-insecure kahit kanino. Kung mai-insecure pa siya, ewan ko na lang, guni-guni lang yun ng mga taong nakapaligid. Siya pa rin ang nagre-reign. Siya pa rin ang sunud-sunod ang teleserye," Gretchen explained.
"Naawa ako syempre na ma-accuse ang kapatid mo (na insecure), pero alam ko naman kaya niya yun. Sabi ko nga, ‘That’s part of being Claudine Barretto and having the fame and special treatment that you have in ABS-CBN…’ Kasi syempre matagal na siya dito sa ABS kaya nabibigyan siya ng special attention," she added.
The controversial actress explained that Claudine has worked her way up to where she is now and that she deserves it. She added that it is not fair for other people to accuse her younger sister of being big-headed.
Amidst all of these intrigues, Gretchen is convinced that Gretchen is undeniably the reigning teleserye queen and there is no contest to it.
She further elaborated that Judy Ann Santos is Claudine’s closest rival in terms of acting awards, longevity in the business and number of projects.
"Healthy competition is very good. We need that, hindi pwedeng iisa lang wala kang kalaban," she said.
When asked if she is willing to do a project with Angel, Gretchen dispels the question and answers: "With Claudine, yes.
