Recently, Gretchen Barretto, along with her friends Mimi Que and Patty Pineda, were criticized by social media users for laughing at a woman’s letter asking them for help for her mother-in-law. To give you a refresher, the three women uploaded an Instagram story where they were shown reading a telegram from the letter sender. While doing so, they were laughing at it, which eventually gained the ire of netizens. According to social media users who saw their post, the three friends seemed “matapobre” for laughing at such a serious matter.
In the end, Gretchen issued an apology in the form of another Instagram story. Things got a bit heated as the wife of business mogul, TonyBoy Cojuangco, felt as if netizens were getting too personal for accusing her as Cojuangco’s mistress.
Despite this, La Greta boldly clapped back at these accusations and said that she is “happily TonyBoy’s mistress.”
In the clip, she said:
“Sasabihin nilang kabit, aaminin ko for the past 23 or almost 24 years, opo, kabit po ako ni Tonyboy Cojuangco. I never denied it.”
“If you threw that at me five years ago, maglulupasay po ako. Halos magpakamatay po ako sa sakit sa aking dibdib pag tinatawag niyo akong kabit.”
She also mentioned that being a mistress doesn’t really matter to her anymore since she has been living blissfully for the past 23 years with her partner.
“But right now, after 23 lovely years with my Tonyboy, you can call me kabit and I will tell you, I am happily his kabit. I am happily his mistress.”
The actress said that TonyBoy’s love for her in unconditional even though they are not married.
“I have a man who loves me unconditionally. Yes, it is true. Maybe I will never be married with him. Maybe he will never marry me. Maybe I will never have that dream to walk down the aisle and have that fabulous gown. But who cares?”
