Cristine Reyes and her sister Ara Mina made headlines a couple of months ago after the latter filed libel and grave coercion cases against her younger sister. Mina said she was compelled to take the matter to court after the “Dahil sa Pag-ibig” star threatened that she will continue her personal attacks on her if she will not turn over an SUV as payment for the remaining P1.8 million balance for a Quezon City townhouse they bought for their mother.
In a live interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, June 24, Reyes finally acknowledged that what she did to her sister was wrong.
“I’m sorry and I would like to apologize if ever I offended you, sumama ang loob mo sa akin. I tried my best na pumunta sa iyo, alam mo iyan ate. Sinabi ko pa iyan sa ‘yo na kung gusto mo luluhod ako sa harapan mo. Sana lumambot na ang puso mo sa akin para maayos na itong gulo, para tahimik na, para sa ikakatahimik ng pamilya natin,” she said.
Reyes realized that the rift was a learning experience for her.
“Sa lahat ng experiences, troubles, problems sa buhay, na-realize ko na huwag tayong susuko. Bawat problema, may natututunan ako. Doon ako tumitibay. Kasama siya sa buhay talaga eh. Boring ang buhay kapag walang problema, lahat tayo dumadaan diyan,” she said.
