Part 3 i learned pain… There are many things that changed for me in the past 3 months. My outlook on life was altered significantly because choosing transparency- September 27, 2018 forced me to face my mortality. I am sparing myself and my sons the sharing of complete details, because anyway i know that you are all intelligent. The fact we flew to Singapore on September 30, and on October 2 i went to a respected medical expert- an allergy, rheumatoid, and immunology specialist is enough of an indication that time was of the essence. My initial diagnosis here was alarming, primarily because all of the medicine i could take to battle the illness my blood tests indicated i had, they weren’t viable for me. The first 3 lines of defense NSAIDS (i am severely allergic to all), CORTICOSTEROIDS (contraindicated with my hypertension medication), and immunosuppressants (they may make a patient more prone to infection and my lungs are vulnerable, thus having an illness like pneumonia would be more serious for me, so the risks far outweighed whatever benefit they may bring) couldn’t be options. There is a quote i read, “What you fear the most reveals what you VALUE the most. What you fear the most reveals where you TRUST God the least.” I cried nonstop and so did Bimb. My main fear was that my 11 year old would not have me during those crucial mid-teen years. Kuya Josh is technically an adult and i have no doubt that his tito Noy will take him in. But what would happen to my bunso? There is no pain equivalent to seeing my child crying the entire night because he was made to face something inevitable yet a passage we as parents all believe would happen many years from now.
Even Kris Aquino thinks people shouldn’t solely criticize Julia Barretto over the alleged cheating scandal with Gerald Anderson.
A netizen commented on one of Kris’ Instagram photos, asking her Erich Gonzales’ opinion on the situtation. (Erich is a good friend of Julia and Gerald, and also one of Kris’ “adopted daughters.”) But the actress wasn’t going to entertain the request and instead talked about respecting Erich, Julia, and Bea Alonzo.
“Ang hindi natin buhay wag na natin guluhin, especially Erich na hindi naman directly involved,” (Let’s not meddle with other people’s lives, especially Erich who’s not directly involved) Kris commented. She added that even though she’s friends with Bea, it’s still unfair to judge Julia.
“Why do we always blame the girl?” Kris said. “And don’t pit them against each other. Even those with no issues.”
The cheating allegations started last week when a photo of Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson went viral on social media. This came after news that Julia and her on- and off-screen partner, Joshua Garcia, broke up. Netizens theorized that Gerald might be the third party, but JoshLia denied the claims.
But what fueled the controversy were Bea Alonzo’s cryptic posts on Instagram which hinted at Gerald’s infidelity. She was also spotted liking posts related to the rumors. The fandoms went wild from there, mostly accusing Julia and wishing that her career went downhill for what she allegedly did to Joshua.
As of now, the actors haven’t directly spoken up about the issue. Bea told reporters Gerald practically ghosted her, while Joshua said he’s just focusing on his career. Julia has been posting Bible verses, as well as a text conversation with her ex to show they’re in good terms. Meanwhile, Marjorie Barretto plans to take legal action against the netizen who posted the viral photos.
But Kris is right. If the cheating scandal turns out to be true, the woman isn’t the only one to blame, the guy is at fault too. It’s a two-way street, people![Inquirer.net]
