Businessman Charlie “Atong” Ang in an exclusive interview with Noli De Castro on TV Patrol said that Marjorie Barreto should not be afraid of him because he’s already used to be controversial.
However, Ang warned Marjorie that she should be more afraid of the possible response from the family of former Caloocan City Mayor Recom Echiverri after the latter announced that she’s a mistress of the said politician.
“Kung may dapat kang katakutan, I think, yung pamilya ni Recom, kasi idineklara mong kabit ka,” Ang said.
“Aba’y dapat lang matakot ka, may mga anak yun. Kung ibinulgar mo ako, huwag kang mag-alala, sikat naman ako talaga,” he added.
Recom, is married to Purification Malabanan-Echiverri.
Ang also gave suggestions to the Barreto sister to stop their feud because their remaining parent is being affected by their controversies.
“Sa inyong mga Barretto, since naging parang family ko kayo, kayo na, nilalahat ko na kayo, nawala na ang tatay niyo ngayon, nag-iisa na ang nanay niyo. Kapareho ko, ang nanay ko, mahal ko nanay ko. Inaalagaan ko ‘yan,” Ang said.
“Magtulong-tulong lang kayo, magbigay kayo ng pera, buhayin niyo, pilitin niyo na maka-survive ang nanay niyo,” he added.
Ang also made a sarcastic remark, saying that the Barreto sisters are entertaining the people by their feud.
“Anyway, nakakatulong naman kayo. Nagkakaroon ng libangan yung mga tao. Ngayon, kung gusto niyong ituloy, mga artista naman kayo, e, di ituloy niyo. Pero suggestion ko lang, tigilan niyo na. Nabababoy yung mga anak niyo,” he said.
“Kita mo, ikaw Marjorie, nasisira tuloy yung mga anak mo. May career pa naman ‘yang anak mo. Itago niyo na ‘yung mga ganyan. Nasisira, e. Hindi ka naman sisikat, Marjorie, o kayo Gretchen… kung mag-aaway kayo, pareho naman kayo na hindi na nag-aartista,” he added.
The Barreto feud started when Marjorie reportedly refused to shake the hands of her sister Gretchen in front of President Duterte.
Claudine confronted Marjorie after the latter refused the request of the President.
After numerous exchanges on social media, Marjorie appeared on national television and admitted that Recom is the father of her youngest daughter.
“Recom Echiverri is the father of my youngest daughter. That’s all I have to say,” Marjorie told ABS-CBN News’ Karen Davila in an interview on Tuesday.
“I understand where this is coming from. Maybe they think the mother’s a mistress, and maybe they think she’s a mistress for money. But that’s not the truth. I’m not a mistress for money,” she also said.
