Gigi Reyes claims Mrs. Enrile’s revelation about her alleged affair with JPE is full of "half-truths"
Will anyone take her side?
GMA News Online reports that in an exclusive interview, lawyer Jessica Lucila "Gigi" Reyes dismissed the revelations made by Cristina Enrile, wife of Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, about their supposed years-long affair by saying that while they are not lies, "but half-truths [which] are half-lies as well."
The report explained that in a brief correspondence to the news site, Reyes surmised that Mrs. Enrile had her own reasons for saying what she did about her husband's colourful affairs with other women, including Reyes, his former chief of staff.
"Mrs. Enrile has her own reasons for... laying the blame on ’women’ who she said were the ones who ’offered themselves’ to her husband. Excuse me, I certainly did not offer myself to him." In exasperation, Reyes asked: "So kasalanan lahat ng mga babae, walang kasalanan si Senator kase lalaki lang siya natural lang. Ganon ba?"
In a candid television interview on March 3, Mrs. Enrile opened up about the 38 affairs she claims Sen. Enrile had over the course of their marriage. She said she was once prompted to file a divorce in the US from her husband after learning that his affair with Reyes was already going on for several years, "longer than the others."
