Is Ruffa Gutierrez throwing shade at Gretchen Barretto with this post?

MANILA, Philippines — Beauty-queen-turned-actress Ruffa Gutierrez was the latest target of Gretchen Barreto’s unfiltered words on social media, but it seems like the former is simply not backing down.

“Sawsaw pa more,” Gretchen told Gutierrez after the latter complimented actress Julia’s photo on Instagram.

Julia is Gretchen’s niece and daughter of her sister Marjorie whom she has been in a long-standing feud.

While Gutierrez has not directly addressed Gretchen’s statement, a cryptic post she made Thursday over her Instagram account may send some netizens to think otherwise.

Gutierrez expressed thanks to her family by sharing a couple of photos with her siblings, children and parents.

“Waking up today with a grateful heart. Taking a moment to breathe, pray and be thankful for the gift of family,” Gutierrez wrote as caption.

“Masaya, minsan nagkakatampuhan, maingay (lalo na si mommy ) pero ang pinakaimportante nagtutulungan at nagmamahalan kami. I love you fambam!!” she added.

Gutierrez’s daughter Lorin left a comment on the post and said “Freshhhh,” the same compliment her mother told Julia in previous selfie she posted.

Gretchen recently made headlines with her sisters Claudine and Marjorie after a scuffle at the wake of their late father Miguel who passed away last October 15. /jpv
