How Charice and mom Raquel patched up their relationship
“Actually before nangyari yung sa airport, nagkakausap na po kami ni Mommy end of June. Doon po nag-start po. Kasi meron akong e-mail address na hindi ko na binubuksan. I opened it and I saw two emails from her. And yung email na iyon ano pa iyon, from February pa yata. At that time nakasulat nga po na kinakamusta niya ako,” Charice said.
(Actually before the airport incident happened, Mommy and I were already talking, around end of June. It all started there. I had an e-mail address that I had not been using for a while. I opened it, and I saw two emails from her. And that email was last February, I think. She was asking how I was doing.)
Previously, Raquel and Charice's brother Carl picked up Charice and girlfriend Alyssa at the airport after they returned from the world tour. Charice posted a photo on her Instagram.
Charice also said that the e-mail asked how her girlfriend Alyssa Quijano was doing. She said that she messaged her mother back, and 5 minutes later, got a reply. From then on, she and her mom started talking to each other again.
She also mentioned she held back her emotions during that moment, when she talked with her mother on Skype.
“Gusto ko maging emotional at the same time ayoko maging dramatic at that time. Gusto ko lang na nandoon yung happiness,” she said.
(I want to be emotional, at the same time I did not want to be too dramatic. I just wanted the happiness to stay.)
Charice said that her mother is busy with the restaurant in Cabuyao, Laguna, which many customers continue to visit. She also shared that she and mother talked about everything.
Charice also confirmed that she was again interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, and this is scheduled to be shown in October.
“Yes po its coming out this October 19. Kinakabahan ako kasi pagpasok pa lang sa studio, sabi ko ‘I am really nervous.’ Sabi nila ‘don’t be, this is your homecoming.’ Sa studio kami lang dalawa, mas intimate,” she said.
(I was really nervous when I entered the studio. I said ‘I am really nervous.’ They said ‘don’t be, this is your homecoming.' In the studio, it was just the two of us, very intimate.)
When asked what Oprah told her after the show, Charice said: “ I am very proud of you.”
Asked if there anything else she wants now that everything is starting to be okay again, Charice said: “I just look forward for more blessings. I don’t want to ask for anything else kasi parang nandito na lahat eh. Yung mga gusto ko, mga pinangarap ko dati pa.”
(I don't want to ask for anything else because everything is already here. What I've always wanted, my dreams from before.) Rappler.com
