Controversial friends Gretchen Barretto and Atong Ang are hot topic once again.

The two were recently sighted together in Iloilo City, something that has triggered much ado.

No, it was not because Gretchen’s partner, Tonyboy Cojuangco, was not part of their trip.

The main issue is about the two not supposedly coordinating their visit with proper authorities.

Atty. Suzette Mamon, Iloilo provincial administrator, confirmed this in a statement, saying, “In so far as the province of Iloilo is concerned, wala kami gin-inform officially or in any capacity.”

But was it necessary?

Well, according to some, it is.

They noted how the arrival of the two at a resort there caused a huge crowd to gather, with almost everyone doing away with social distancing protocols.

But why were the two in Iloilo City?

According to a report, it was business as usual for Atong, citing how the visit coincided with a scheduled meeting with members of the Gamefowl Affiliates of Pitmasters-Philippines (GAPP).

This is supposedly in line with Atong’s new business venture — online cockfighting.

Nobody knows why La Greta was there.

Some say she is just being a very supportive friend. Others surmise she is also into cockfighting.

We could all continue guessing at this point as both are still mum on the matter.

To be clear, both Gretchen and Atong have already denied malicious insinuations they are making sweet music.
