And here’s a letter from Gia Barretto-Reyes (obviously addressed to sister Gretchen), sent to her mom Inday from Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Inday furnished Funfare a copy of the letter. Here it is, also unedited:
When enough is enough
I respect that you do not want to be part of our family. At this point, we welcome it.
Not at any point do I ever recall us forcing you to be part of us but we have never also alienated you during the times when you wanted to be with us. Even during the times when you battled with one of us.
I say us because you have time and time again made extreme efforts to push us — mom, dad and all of us — away. You have hurt us in ways that put the word decency to shame, you have had no rules when you attacked us. If the attack were physical then it would be bearable. Bruises heal. But the attack has always been vicious, below the belt and so evil that the wound borne from it cannot heal. It is done repeatedly and unsparingly with permanent damage in mind. You have tried to put mom and dad to shame with empty allegations without thinking that you, whether you like it or not came from them. You ridicule them in front of friend, strangers and us. And, you expect us to just take it.
Your claims of financial support for this family have no basis, because dad always managed to provide. For the record, we may not have been so rich but we were never poor. 1. We live in big beautiful houses 2. Slept in carpeted, air-conditioned rooms, 3. Food galore. 4. Put in an exclusive school. 5. Members of exclusive country clubs. 6. We each have our own yayas, yours even a midwife. 7. Driven by chauffeurs.
Long before you were born and even after you were in show business. At 12 years old, could you have duplicated or taken over this kind of a style, with your meager earnings? We did not have an excess of things but we had what we needed. You were never forced to get into show business. I remember very clearly how you ran to the middle of the road when dad said “no” to you entering show business. He believed that school was important. How sad that you cannot distinguish the lies that you make up and reality.
No Gretchen, it was not you who helped us during rough spots. It was Claudine. You could not in the life of you convince her that our parents were abusive ones. It was difficult for you to accept that there was somebody who actually had pure intentions of helping where help was needed. You once told me and I quote, “I just disappear when things get tough.” You have become great at these disappearing acts. Claudine made an effort to be there always. Just a few corrections: Claudine paid for my med at UBC just as she paid for a lot of our nieces and nephews education. She gave them (our nieces and nephews), iPads, iPhones, concert tickets, clothes and so much more. She spoiled all of us not because she needed to but she wanted to. She unlike you, has never equated her value with money or material possessions.
JJ comments on TV are only credible in as far as he is caught between a rock and a hard place, because he is in your employ. It honestly pains me to see that you could put him in this situation. To pick between that and his parents.
I echo mom’s words, “Stop it.” We get it. We know you don’t want us so please hear us now...”We do not want you, too.” Please stop hounding us like an attack dog. We will admit defeat if you just leave us in peace. Just totally disappear from our lives without leaving a trail of vile and misery. Please.
Enough is enough! Leave us alone. Leave my family alone.

Too many open letters have been sent out. I'll just make mine short.
I LOVE YOU!
Gretchen should now change her surname to Iscariot for she is no longer a Barretto, as far as mommy Inday is concerned.
Gretchen Iscariot, what a lovely name! #charot
On the other hand...WE are Claudine's real siblings because we love her unconditionally. tama?
sobrang worried ako ngayon kay claudine sana okay ka ngayon clau, always remember andito lang kami to support you naniniwala kami sayo part ka na ng buhay namin at mahal na mahal ka namin. pakatatag ka kaya mo yan.

Im proud to be a claudinian and a loyal fan. you inspires me in many ways Tandaan mo hindi ka masama, hindi ka perpekto nagkakamali ka kaya ka nga minamahal ng claudinians dahil totoo ka sa sarili mo. Naniniwala kami sayo. Sana claudine baonin mo lahat ng sakit para bumangon, gusto ko makita ang dating claudine. Mahal na mahal kita at lagi kita pinagdarasal.

To Claudine ..People will always point out your faults, but will hesitate to point out your attributes
*dasal lang Mrs Claudine Barretto-Santiago and be strong
kaloka itinakwil na ng Nanay, itinakwil na rin ng kapatid...... big time OUCH Evil Queen of Bhutan!!!!
naku si Gia pa naman pinaka matino at pinakamatalino sa kanilang lahat kaya pag yan ang nagsalita, VERY CREDIBLE! pak na pak!
pagamot ka na Gretchen, ikaw ang may sayad! you and you alone! lahat nang to palabas mo...para idown at ipahiya si Claudine in public at hindi na paniwalaan once na nagsalita na... hindi pa ba sapat yung pangtotorture niyo sa kanya at pagbabanta?
Raymart, alam mo lahat nang nangyari at ginawa kay Claudine nakakalungkot at this lowest point in her life nawalan siya ng isang dapat na nagtatanggol sa kaniya... imbes na ikaw ang gumawa, ang Mommy niya fronted to the public. haaaaaaay kakalungkot.kakalungkot! wala ka nga talagang BALLS!!!
