Amid the mess between Kris Aquino and the Falcis brothers, Lolit Solis spoke up and stated her side.
In her recent post, she said that Kris is impulsive and shocking sometimes but she does stand by her belief that the Queen of All Media doesn’t have a mean bone.
“Totoo na maarte siya, tackless, at kung minsan nakakasakit ng feelings dahil nga sinasabi what she thinks and feel na hindi niya alam nakaka-offend kung minsan pero para naman wala siya malisya pag sinabi at ginawa iyon.”

Hah hah ano ba iyan gabi na na-i post iyon mga naganap sa kasalan Alfred at Yasmine pero ang daming reaction. At naloka ako sa isang fan ni Kris Aquino ha. Talagang inalipusta pagka-tao ko. Hah hah. Di raw ako bagay sa isang disenteng okasyon at mga disenteng tao. Bongga alipusta to the bones. Grabe naman sineryoso iyon kagagahan ko at patunay ha na dami pa rin solid fans ni Tetay. Kaya nga ba takot ako magsama kami baka kuyugin ako mga solid Tetay. hah hah. Pero type ko offer niya ha, give niya ako everyday ng allowance bongga! Rich talaga Tetay kahit wah TV show. Bagay talaga sila ni Jomar Ang kaya lang baka nga wah siya type ni Papa Ramon Ang kasi 24 lang Jomar, 40 plus na Kris. Pero uso naman ngayon iyon noh, mas gurang babae sa men ‘di bah. So malay natin baka talagang meant for each other sila bongga. Hayan mama Joy Belmonte ha sabi ni Kris ‘di siya tatakbo sa 2019. Baka ayaw niya Mayor gusto niya Presidente. Why not, sige Tetay pag run ka ng presidente suportahan kita at more allowance promise love… lab lab lab. ❤ #70naako #lolitkulit #instatalk @krisaquino @ligoras
She added that they always had the “love-hate” relationship but also has a soft spot for each other.
“Kahit pa nga sometimes nasasaktan namin ang feeling, nandun pa rin ang respeto.”
Solis then continued defending Aquino against the bullying and power-tripping accusations.
“One thing I can say, hindi si Kris ang tipo na magbibintang ng basta-basta, to put one down, kaya pag sinabi niya sure ako lalo at sensitive na issue na tutoo iyon bintang niya. Ang nangyari nga lang, sa sobrang ingay ng issue nagkaroon ng ibang perception, nagkaroon ng kampihan at pilian kung sino paniniwalaan. One thing, hindi at never na ginawa ni Kris ang power tripping.”
She then stated that Gretchen Barretto‘s statements in one of her posts is false and that “she should know” since she both she and Kris were once a close as friends.
“Kaya mali iyon bintang ni Gretchen Barretto. She should know, naging close sila for a while ni Kris at alam niya na never nito ginamit ang power to get something. Ay naku, buti na lang kaya na ni Kris ngayon to fight on her own kasi mukhang habang tumatanda siya nagkakapatung-patong ang problema niya.”

Hay Salve lalo ako nahihilo pag may mga ganap kay Kris Aquino. Kasi sa tagal namin nagkasama noon ni Kris, alam ko na kung minsan impulsive siya at bigla kung gumawa ng desisyon but I will always stand by my belief na wala siyang mean bones. Totoo na maarte siya, tackless, at kung minsan nakakasakit ng feelings dahil nga sinasabi what she thinks and feel na hindi niya alam nakaka-offend kung minsan pero para naman wala siya malisya pag sinabi at ginawa iyon. Kami ni Kris live, love and hate ang relationship pero I will say na may soft spot kami sa isa't isa. Or kahit pa nga sometimes nasasaktan namin ang feeling, nandun pa rin ang respeto. One thing I can say, hindi si Kris ang tipo na magbibintang ng basta-basta, to put one down, kaya pag sinabi niya sure ako lalo at sensitive na issue na tutoo iyon bintang niya. Ang nangyari nga lang, sa sobrang ingay ng issue nagkaroon ng ibang perception, nagkaroon ng kampihan at pilian kung sino paniniwalaan. One thing, hindi at never na ginawa ni Kris ang power tripping. Saksi ako ng kung paano niya sundin ang maghintay, at hindi ipilit na 'hoy, si Kris Aquino ako, ako unahin nyo' at to bully, hah hah, mas madalas nga siya ang binu-bully hah hah. Kaya mali iyon bintang ni Gretchen Barretto. She should know, naging close sila for a while ni Kris at alam niya na never nito ginamit ang power to get something. Ay naku, buti na lang kaya na ni Kris ngayon to fight on her own kasi mukhang habang tumatanda siya nagkakapatung-patong ang problema niya. At iyon sakit niya, sana maayos na. Totoo naman iyon feeling niya as a mother, paano at sino titingin sa mga anak niya kahit pa nga may maiiwan siya. Bata pa si Bimby at special si Joshua. Naku Kris, fight lang, kung iyon nga problema sa puso kaya mo, kaya mo rin ito. Mukha ka lang fragile pero fighter ang loob mo. Head on, fight. #lolitkulit #instatalk #71naako @krisaquino
On Saturday, January 5, Gretchen posted a screenshot of Nicko Falcis saying that he received death threats from Aquino. In the caption she wrote the she “feel” for Falscis.
“I salute him for his courage to speak the truth , fight for his family name & reputation inspite of the threat to his life No to bullies!!!! STOP POWER TRIPPING”
Kapamilya star Enchong Dee was also noticed to have liked Gretchen’s post regarding the issue.
Gretchen Barretto chose to react to the ongoing controversy between Kris Aquino and her former financial manager, Nicko Falcis.
On Saturday, January 5, Baretto showed a screenshot of an article saying that Aquino allegedly sent death threats to Falcis.
She wrote that she “felt” for him and saluted his continuous fight for his reputation despite the incident.
She then ended her caption with “No to bullies!!!! STOP POWER TRIPPING” which is seemingly directed to Aquino.
Falcis reacted to the support.
On Instagram, he clarified that he does not personally know Barretto so he saw her post as a “blessing”.
“Her act of posting this message in open support of my family and I, and against the seemingly formidable Aquino machinery, was a brave and bold move she made. We do not know each other so this is such a blessing, along with thousands of well meaning messages of strength and support from random people.”
He also praised Baretto and described her as “intelligent, refined and articulate”. But he is still surprised that she’s on his side.

Thank you, Ms Gretchen Barreto for your post. Her act of posting this message in open support of my family and I, and against the seemingly formidable Aquino machinery, was a brave and bold move she made. We do not know each other so this is such a blessing, along with thousands of well meaning messages of strength and support from random people. I've read her other posts here and there, and seen her YT videos. She is intelligent, refined and articulate but I never thought that she would be capable of going out of her comfort zone to write such a post. Salamat po! No to bullies! No to power tripping!
Falcis then repeated Barretto’s words and ended his post with “No to bullies! No to power tripping!”
Actress Gretchen Barretto issued an apology last June 9 after her Instagram video went viral. The video contained Baretto with her friends Mimi Que and Patty Pineda laughing while reading a letter sender’s request.
The trio was trying to read a letter sent by a woman named Jo-Ann Mula, who was asking for help on behalf of her mother-in-law.
In her apology, she stated that she sometimes forgets that she’s 48 years old and she should be acting her age, but she also admitted that she’s still very immature.
“Sorry po at minsan nakakalimutan ko po na 48 years old na ako (I’m sorry and sometimes I forget that I’m 48 years old) and I should be behaving my age.
But talagang sadyang immature pa rin po ako (But I guess I’m just very immature) and I am very sorry. I’d like to make a public apology, although Jo-Ann Mula already accepted our apology that very night,”
In the 30 minutes of live video, she clarified that she was not laughing about the letter sender being sick, contrary to what was pointed out by some netizens on Facebook.
She also said that she decided not to talk to the media. Gretchen said she was grateful for the support she got from her followers. She also thanked those who criticized her.
“I know that I have been a little… not a little, but very careless, very reckless with my ways. Like I said, I am flawed and I am willing to learn. I am willing to get hurt.”
I am glad that we are going through this trial, this hurdle because it is only through this kind of situation we grow. And so we’re learning to grow and tears won’t hurt. It won’t kill us.”
Gretchen also mentioned that she has no plans for stopping on helping others.
Actress Gretchen Barretto and her friends Mimi Que and Patty Pineda has granted many of of their Instagram followers’ wishes after the success of their first Easter Sunday gift-giving activity on social media.
In a post of the actress, netizens were confused when Barretto, Que, and Pineda started laughing hysterically while reading a request sent by a follower.
“No caption needed. Swipe left”
Although it was unclear over what the trio were laughing about, one commenter explained the context of the video:
“Tagalugin ko para naman ma-gets nila at hindi nila pag tawanan. May dalawa daw siyang anak at nawalan siya ng work. (since my youngest) meaning nun, simula nung isilang niya siguro un bunsong anak niya. Un youngest son niya na-accident daw nung one month old pa lang nung time na nagka earthquake daw sa kanila (Surigao City) and also his youngest son is a pre-mature baby then siguro inoperahan then he survived. His eldest son naman daw may butas sa puso. (So, in short… she is telling her lifestory) Then, before pa she keeps on sending her request for his sick brother and baka di niyo mababasa kaya sinabi niya ulit. And siguro nung time naman na magrerequest ulit siya, Mother’s day naman so her request for that day is for her Mom.”
As a result, her followers were confused and shocked as to why they are laughing over the seemingly sincere letter of the sender.
Inappropriate to show this video in public tsk! so insensitive! Why laughing? Kung tutulong lang naman din bat pa nagtatawanan? You guys are lucky for having a good life!… kung wrong grammar mn galing. Kamu nalang siguro mag adjust total kamu may naka skwela! Tsk! Taga Surigao pajud inyo gi ing ana seeeees! Here’s my 10 cents mga hambog!”
“w0w!!! para silang walang kamatayan!!! time will come din sa inyo!! di nyo alam kung anong hirap mayron and taong laman nang sulat na yan!! darating din panahon niyo na yung salapi niyo walang bisa!!”
“Bakit kailangan pang e LAUGHTRIP? Binasa niyo nalang sana ng tahimik lang.. total kayo naman ang may pinag aralan kaysa nagsulat ng requist na yun dapat kayo nalang ang umiintindi?? Nagmukha na tuloy kayong mas walang pinag.aralan kaysa sa taong humihingi lng naman ng tulong sa inyo?.”
However there are also comments defending Barretto’s video
“Nag base kayo sa caption ng nagshare hindi nyo inassess ung video kung bakit sila ngtawanan.. the letter was at first about the sender’s son then suddenly moved to his brother but since mother’s day nga daw ang request ay para sa mother. They didn’t laugh about the situations of the people in the letter natawa lang sila na after all ng nasabi ng sender para sa mother pala ung request.”
Barretto, Que, and Pineda has yet to provide an explanation as to why they are laughing in the video.
