Annabelle Rama is torn between her own emotions and the desire to see her granddaughters happy.
"Kawawa din naman 'yung mga apo ko," she said last Sunday, August 19, during an interview with Showbiz Central.
However, Annabelle's personal reservations on the issue regarding her daughter Ruffa Gutierrez's reported reconciliation with ex-husband Yilmaz Bektas got the better of her.
"Masyado pang maaga para makipag-usap ako sa kanya. 'Yung sakit sa puso ko, hindi pa nawawala kasi lagi kong naaalala ang ginagawa niya kay Ruffa," Annabelle expressed, before recalling all the nasty words that were thrown by the Turkish businessman against her and husband Eddie Gutierrez at the height of the separation.
"'Yung mga sinasabi niya sa akin ang sasama, kesyo ako ang kontrabida sa buhay nila ni Ruffa...basta masasama. 'Yung mga text niya sa akin hindi maganda. Ang text niya kay Eduardo, hindi maganda."
Yilmaz had publicly made known his wishes to personally talk to Annabelle and Eddie to prove his sincerity in wooing Ruffa back after the bitter fallout.
"Hay, naku, si Ruffa patay na patay! Excited na excited. Right now, Ruffa, surrender na ako sa 'yo... Nagkaayos na sila, ang alam ko, e. Sabi ko, ngayon lang 'yan," said Annabelle.
Although the feisty celebrity mom never said anything about completely shutting her heart, Annabelle feels that it is way too early to mend fences with her erstwhile son-in-law.
"Too soon kasi. Kelan lang 'yon, last month lang 'ata 'yon, e," she said.
Admittedly, Ruffa's recent decision to meet with Yilmaz drove a wedge between Annabelle and her daughter.
"Hindi kami magkabati, ‘Day. Magkaaway kami simula nang dumating si Yilmaz. Magkaaway kami, ayoko siyang kausapin," candidly confessed Annabelle.
Ruffa's efforts to patch up all the differences were met with stiff resistance from Annabelle.
"Minsan nag-text siya sa akin. Last Sunday, kasi sabay-sabay kaming magsimba. Tumawag si Ruffa, sabi ko, 'Ruffa hindi muna ngayon. Galit pa ako hanggang ngayon.' Si Ruffa ang gumagawa ng paraan. Hindi pa kami ready [makipag-usap]."
Staring at the prospect of seeing her daughter back into the arms of her estranged hubby, Annabelle could only hope that Yilmaz this time would keep his promise and change for the better.
"Sana ang pagmamahal na ipinapakita niya ipagpatuloy niya kasi nakakatuwa. Tanggalin ang pagiging mainit ang ulo at pagiging seloso, 'yon lang ang ipakita niya sa amin ni Eddie," Annabelle advised Yilmaz.
