How Dominique Cojuangco played a role in clearing the air between her mom Gretchen Barretto and cousin Claudia was indeed praiseworthy.
To those who missed the issue: It began on Instagram, where one of Gretchen's followers told the actress about Claudia supposedly referring to her as "somebody else" during the launch of Claudia's debut single "Stay."
Gretchen then called Claudia an "ungrateful child" among other things.

Dominique, who is in London, called her mom the same day, and asked her to reach out to Claudia.
The ending was: Gretchen asked for "understanding and forgiveness," referred to Claudia as "my child," who, in her response, addressed Gretchen as her "mama."
The actress mentioned that Claudia is like a "little sister" to Dominique.
And despite the gap between Gretchen and Marjorie, Claudia's mom, the two young ladies have remained close.
