Claudine Barretto says Raymart Santiago was a "rebound" husband
Claudine 'fesses up on why the marriage just didn't work
(SPOT.ph) Claudine Barretto finally has an answer to the question, “What happened to your marriage with Raymart Santiago?”
In an interview with her Etiquette for Mistresses co-star Kris Aquino on the September 7 episode of Kris TV, Claudine confessed, “I think rebound kasi.”
The actress explained that she started a relationship with Santiago while she was “sad” and “broken” after the death of her former flame, actor Rico Yan, in March 2002 due to cardiac arrest.
Barretto said that Santiago was “somebody who was there. Parang knight in shining armor,” but that she “played safe” by pursuing the relationship.
On possible future romantic prospects, Barretto admitted, “May mga nagsi-set up, pero hindi talaga flourishing.” She continued, “Okay naman ako, pero I’m still broken and I’m still healing.”
As for the future of her family, she and Santiago have agreed to attempt “uncoupling,” which might remind you of another famous pairing that consciously uncoupled: Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
We’re still not sure how that’s working out for them, but Barretto says, “Parang gusto din nila, parang naguguluhan na sila ‘yung away-away. Dapat hindi na talaga. Parang naisip namin, we failed as husband and wife. Let’s not fail as parents.”
Barretto is set to make her big-screen comeback with Etiquette for Mistresses (in cinemas September 30) alongside Kris Aquino, Kim Chiu, Iza Calzado, and Cheena Crab.
