After seeing Barretto on the cockpit arena, @ogmamamary will now not reject the idea of being ‘sabongera’
Upon knowing that Barretto is betting on cockfights, @fynestgeri is now ashamed to bet small amounts.

Last year in November, Barretto, and Ang were involved in an alleged violation of health protocols when they visited Janiuay, Iloilo, for a business meeting with ‘sabong’ operators as they wish to establish their own online cockfighting.
Gretchen came from the prominent showbiz clan of Barrettos. She is a singer-actress and became well-known because of her sexy roles in films produced by Seiko like Tukso, Layuan Mo Ako!, Ang Bukas Ay Akin, Ama, Bakit Mo Ako Pinabayaan?, Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin, and Bakit Ako Mahihiya?. Her last TV appearance was in 2013 via the ABS-CBN series Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala’for a special role.
