Atong Ang’s advice to the Barretto sisters: “Stop na ‘yan. Alagaan niyo na lang ‘yung family niyo”

“Tumawag sa akin si Tony. Sabi sa akin, ‘Pare, pakisamahan si Gretchen, baka mapaaway ‘yan doon.’ Iyon ang sabi sa akin ni Tony, sabi ko sige samahan ko na lang, kausap ko si Gretchen, ‘Sige samahan na lang kita.’”

After Marjorie Barretto mentioned Charlie “Atong” Ang during her tell-all interview with Karen Davila, Atong has finally decided to speak up about his part in the Barretto sisters’ feud.

He agreed to an interview with Noli de Castro on TV Patrol that was aired last Thursday, October 24.

Atong allegedly had an affair with Gretchen Barretto while being in a relationship with Gretchen’s niece Nicole Barretto a few years back. Atong denied this and said, “Unang-una walang agawan, dahil hindi naman kami ni Gretchen.”

Atong’s side of the scuffle at Miguel Barretto’s Wake

According to Atong, he was only there at Miguel Barretto’s wake because Tony Boy Conjuangco asked him to accompany Gretchen and to avoid any confrontation that may occur with the latter’s sisters.

“Tumawag sa akin si Tony. Sabi sa akin, ‘Pare, pakisamahan si Gretchen, baka mapaaway ‘yan doon.’ Iyon ang sabi sa akin ni Tony, sabi ko sige samahan ko na lang, kausap ko si Gretchen, ‘Sige samahan na lang kita.’”

It can be recalled Marjorie stated that right before Gretchen and Atong arrived at the wake, Gretchen’s camp asked Nicole and other relatives if they could leave the premises for a while to prevent any conflicts. But then, Nicole called Atong’s daughter to beseech Gretchen not to go.

Nicole told Atong’s daughter: “Paki sabi sa papa mo, for respeto, huwag na silang pumunta sa patay.”

Atong opposed Nicole’s statement and emphasized that Gretchen is also Miguel’s daughter and she has the right to visit her father during the wake.

“Unang-una, bakit hindi invited? Anak ‘to (Gretchen) Ang eksaktong sabi ko sa anak ko, paki sabi kay Nicole, pupunta lang naman kami doon para kay Presidente. Sasamahan ko si Gretchen. Baka magkagulo, kailangan ko samahan, sabi ni Tony. Ang in-advise ko paki sabi na lang kay Nicole, kung ayaw nilang makita, huwag na lang sila magpakita. Pag-alis ni Presidente, aalis din kami, e. Iyon ang sinabi ko, iyon ang sinabi niya kay Nicole. Hindi ako nag-warning. Nagsabi lang ako na huwag na magkita-kita para huwag magkagulo.”

Marjorie claimed Atong was about to physically attack her

Opposed to what Marjorie is claiming that Atong was about to attack her, the Meridian Vista Gaming Corp. consultant Ang strongly denied the allegation and narrated what really happened to him and Marjorie when the scuffle at Miguel’s wake started.

“Nakita ko, umiyak si Gretchen. Nagyakapan na ‘yung dalawa. At least, nagkasundo.” He was pertaining to Gretchen and Estrella “Inday” Barretto.

Atong continued: “Inaalalayan ko, baka magsalpukan. Nakatayo ako, nakatingin lang ako sa kanila. Narinig ko, sumigaw si Marjorie. Nakita ko si Gretchen—narinig ko sabi, Sir, ako na ho, mas matanda ako e. Sila ni Claudine ‘yung nagbangaan. Hindi nakikialam si Gretchen. Ang ginawa ko, noong nakita kong nagkagulo, hinawakan ko si Claudine. Sabi ko, ‘Clau, tigil.’ Humarang ako, sabi ko respeto! Nakitingin ako sa mata niya. Respeto kay Presidente ang sinasabi ko. Dalawang beses ako nagsalita. Sabi ko respeto!”

Moreover, Atong claimed that he was just preventing everybody else in the circle from accidentally hitting President Duterte.

“Hinarang ko kamay ko, kasi mamaya may gumanon na kamay, tamaan si Presidente, e. Si Presidente pinoproteksyunan ko at saka si Gretchen. Hinarang ko katawan ko. Sa totoo, ako tatamaan e. Ako nga naitulak papasok, e.”

According to the businessman, it isn’t in his nature to hit women so he denied he tried to hurt Marjorie.

“Kung sinabi mong hahablutin kita, matinong tao ako. Sa harap ng Presidente, mananakit ako ng babae? At saka hindi ako nananakit ng babae, wala sa ugali ko ‘yon. Paglingon ko naman sa kaliwa, sumusugod naman si Nicole, lumalapit. Pumihit na ako, lumapit ako kay Nicole, tas lumapit din ‘yung boyfriend niya. Dumikit si Nicole sa akin. Sabi ko Nicole please nagkakagulo na. Please labas na kayo. Hindi ako puwede magsinungaling, andiyan si Presidente, andiyan ang PSG. ‘Yun lang ang naging papel ko. Tapos umatras na ako, tahimik na ako, sila na ang nag-uusap.”

Ang advises Marjorie not to be afraid of him but instead, of Echiverri’s Family

Since Marjorie admitted during the interview with Karen Davila that Recom Echiverri is the father of her youngest daughter, Ang advised her that she should not be afraid of him, but of Echiverri’s family.

“Sa drama niyo, sa away niyo, wala akong pakialam diyan. Kung may dapat kang katakutan, I think ‘yung family ni Recom. Idineklara mong kabit ka, e. Dapat kang matakot, may mga anak ‘yon. Doon ka dapat matakot.”

During the last part of Ang’s interview, he suggested that the Barretto family to patch things up, and take this opportunity to love and support their mother.



“Sa inyong mga Barretto, since naging parang family ko kayo, nilalahat ko na kayo. Namatay na ‘yung tatay niyo. Ngayon, nag-iisa na ang nanay niyo. Magtulong-tulong na lang kayo, magbigay kayo ng pera, buhayin niyo, pilitin niyong maka-survive ang nanay niyo. Kaming magkakapatid, hindi kami magkakasundo, pero hindi kami nag ga-ganiyanan. Pabayaan niyong lumabas ang nanay niyo sa isang side, pabayaan niyo ‘yung kabila. Huwag kayo magsiraan. Hindi naman kayo sisikat, Marjorie o Gretchen, kung mag-aaway kayo. Pareho naman kayong hindi na nag-aartista. Stop na ‘yan. Alagaan niyo na lang ‘yung family niyo.”
