PARDON our borrowing a title of a classic standard song, but “as time goes by,” ang alitan within the Barretto family is getting cheaper as it can be.
Naroong idinadaan na kasi sa social media ang bangayan ng mag-inang Inday at Gretchen, each of them heaping every imaginable katsipan sa bawat isa: from Greta’s panlalalaki to her mom’s pagnanakaw of a jewelry item to the daddy’s pagiging lasenggo.
Ang dapat sana’y isyung nakasentro lang sa nagbabangayang mag-asawang Raymart Santiago at Claudine Barretto like two countries up in arms against each other has become a full-blown war involving other nations.
Like a bitter pill na mahirap masikmura, eto’t may emote pa si Claudine—while all this family katsipan is happening—na kesyo nami-miss daw niya ang kanyang mga pamangkin na anak ng kanyang mga ateng nakuha na niyang itakwil!
May paiyak-iyak pa ang hitad while expressing how much she sorely misses (kuno!) her nieces, habang hindi naman niya makuhang maawat ang kanyang nanay who’s spewing invectives against her other daughter!
As time goes by, the public can only take so much of all this un-Filipino family sort of katsipan so masterfully engineered from the parents down to their offspring.
Flipping through the pages of Roget’s Thesaurus, may synonym pa bang mas hihigit sa salitang “cheap” to describe the goings-on within the Barretto family?
