Gretchen Barretto revealed that her sister Marjorie knows who is behind the photo scandal which broke last week.

Gretchen said her sister plans to break her silence after the elections on Monday.

“Alam ni Marjorie [who is behind this]. Actually tinanong ko si Marjorie on the phone last night. Sabi ko ‘Marj, what are you going to do with this situation?’ Sabi niya ‘Gretchen, hintayin natin na matapos ang eleksyon. Magsasalita ako, ilalabas ko kung ano ang dapat ilabas. Wala akong tinatago, mayroon lang akong mga pinoprotektahan,’” Gretchen said.

According to Gretchen, her younger sister is still coping after her sexy photos made the rounds online last week without her consent.

“May mga oras na okay siya, may mga oras na hindi siya okay. Yes, she admitted na siya yung sa photos,” she said.

Meanwhile, Marjorie said she chose not to dwell on negativity for the sake of her children.

“Lahat ng mommy laging may pagdadaanan sa buhay. Hindi madaling maging nanay. Hindi rin madaling maging isang tao. Pero ‘pag tayong mga mommy, may dumating na pagsubok sa atin, we have no choice but to get up immediately dahil may mga anak tayong umaasa sa atin,” she said.

Marjorie said she is fortunate to have strong children who are helping cope during this difficult time.

“Once you’re a mother, you no longer own yourself. Siguro you’ll give yourself one, two to three days to cry. After that, you pick up yourself and then life goes on kasi may mga anak ka. Malalakas naman ang loob ng mga anak ko so walang dahilan para hindi ako maging matapang din,” she said. (MNS)
