Humingi muna ng paumanhin si Jackie Forster sa publiko bago siya nagsalita tungkol kay Lyxen Dimampo-Paras, ang second wife ng kanyang ex-husband na si Benjie Paras.
Nag-post si Jackie ng kanyang panibagong saloobin kahapon, November 20, sa pamamagitan ng personal accounts niya sa Instagram at Facebook.
Ayaw muna sana ni Jackie na maglabas ng saloobin laban kay Lyxen dahil sa kalamidad na nangyari sa ating bansa, pero hindi na raw niya matitiis ang mga ginagawa ng stepmother ng kanyang mga anak na sina Andre at Kobe Paras.
Pasintabi muna ni Jackie: "We are all still working towards helping victims of Yolanda and the earthquake that came before, and I do believe that charity and healing should always begin at home.
Pero dagdag niya: "But given that my 35th birthday is on November 23, I want to ask for some respect and understanding for the posts I will put up.
"I think it’s time I mourned my loss and stopped pretending like I’m fine.
"My strength is at its lowest but my faith is intact. Surrendering it all to You.
"I hope people will understand the desperation."
LYXEN’S OLD FACEBOOK POST. May pinanggagalingan ang sama ng loob ni Jackie.
Ito ay ang old Facebook post diumano ni Lyxen na nabasa niya, kunsaan pakiramdam ni Jackie ay hinuhusgahan ang kanyang pagkatao bilang babae at ina.
Pinili raw ni Jackie na manahimik, pero nagsasalita na siya ngayon para iparating kay Lyxen na lalaban na siya.
Unang inilabas ni Jackie ang sinasabing FB post ni Lyxen tungkol sa motherhood na malinaw na patama raw sa kanya:
"Motherhood begins during pregnancy and continues to the birthing process. But that’s not being a MOM- it’s when you hold and raise that child and be there for him every single time he needs you.
"When you give up and leave your child for selfish reasons,you stop being his mom. He won’t remember being in your womb nor coming out of you. He will remember and appreciate more the parent who stuck with him through it all, who moved mountains to give him a happy home, who protected and not exposed him to immoral behavior.
"To the other woman who claims to be Andre & Kobe’s mom, they are asking you to STOP.
"Just move on with your life & STOP talking about us. STOP wondering why we’re not together bec. We’ve already told you to your face why & how much we despise you, how happy we are with dad & mama Ly. You’ve ruined our lives before, let us live in peace now. Talking about us just makes us even more ashamed of you. You’re so FC.Such a liar.So stop, please."
Pumutok muli ang isyu tungkol kay Jackie at sa mga anak nila ni Benjie na sina Andre at Kobe ngayong taon, pagkatapos sabihin ng magkapatid sa interview nila sa Startalk noong June 22 na kailangan nila ng "space" mula sa kanilang ina.
Masaya na rin daw sila sa piling ng kanilang "Mommy Lyxen."
JACKIE’S RESPONSE. Bago siya nagbigay ng statement sa PEP para kay Lyxen, sinagot muna ni Jackie ang pinaniniwalaang Facebook post ng stepmother ng kanyang mga anak.
Nang tanungin ng PEP kung ano ang petsa ng FB post ni Lyxen, sinabi nitong hindi niya matandaan eksakto, pero panahon daw ito ng Mother’s Day.
Ito ang buwelta ni Jackie kay Lyxen:
"’Just move on with your life and stop talking about us.’ — It was never going to just be some ’space.’ It was always meant to be permanent.
"This is the woman who has helped raise my kids. These are her teachings.
"My heart is heavy and my mind is racing.
"How dare you, Lyxen, think you can take my place just because you wish you were first.
"You have no right to decide what happens to the biological mother.
"I’ve heard the stories you made up about me.
"You are a sad, sick woman. Karma will find its way to you.
"I hope Andre and Kobe’s friends or their parents read this and tell the boys how wrong you are for doing this to them.
"Even in my silence, God is working.
"Whatever happens from now on, know that HE is making a way for me.
"Putting me down does not make you a better mother.
"And just because they are with you doesn’t make them yours.
"One day, they will wise up. Hopefully soon."
JACKIE’S MESSAGE FOR LYXEN. Sa pamamagitan ng text message ay hiningan ng PEP ng karagdagang pahayag si Jackie tungkol kay Lyxen.
Narito ang mensahe ni Jackie na ipinadala niya ngayong umaga, November 21:
"Lyxen, this was just a sample of many things you have said about me and ’to me.’
"Let’s not play games especially with my children’s lives.
"You know how to find me.
"Most, if not all of my friends with Benjie are still in contact with me.
"Many people around my children have my phone number, I’m easy to find on social media.
"But you already know that because you have the kids block me and you’ve been following me on Twitter and Instagram.
"Apologies are always welcome and my doors will forever be open for my sons.
"You now have the power to do the right thing.
"To God be the Glory, Jackie, MOTHER of Andre and Kobe FORSTER Paras."
THE YES! INTERVIEW. Kaugnay ng istoryang ito, marami pang naging rebelasyon si Jackie sa panayam sa kanya ng YES! magazine na lumabas ngayong November 2013 issue.
Dito ay idinetalye ni Jackie ang naging pagsasama nila ng dating asawa na si Benjie Paras, at ang posibleng dahilan ng pagiging estranged sa kanya ng mga anak na sina Andre at Kobe.
Ed’s Note: Bukas ang PEP sa panig ni Lyxen kung may nais siyang sabihin tungkol sa mga naging pahayag ni Jackie.
