“Kaya ako nagtataka kasi Gretchen prays the rosary, every time, talagang two to three times a day, she goes to Baclaran. May devotion. Nagsisimba, parang very solid ang relationship with God. Ako naman feeling ko kung madasalin kang tao, ‘yung ina-accuse sa iyo na may sisiraan kang kapatid, hindi bagay doon sa nakita ko, for myself na napakamadasalin ngayon. I’m sure since madasalin siya ino-honor niya ang Ten Commandments. Hindi ba the fourth commandment is ‘honor your mother and your father?'”
~Kris Aquino on Gretchen Barretto’s feud with her mom, Inday
