Annabelle Rama made a revelation about Ruffa Gutierrez who apparently has been crying everyday since her daughters, Lorin and Venice, reunited with their father Yilmaz Bektas.
The "The Mall, The Merrier" actress revealed this during the June 15 episode of "It's Showtime," where Annabelle and Ruffa, together with Raymond Gutierrez, all serve as judges for the show's "Showtime Sexy Babe” segment.
The topic came up when Annabelle mentioned her granddaughters' reunion in relation to the situation of the contestant.
“‘Yung tungkol sa tatay mo na wala at hindi mo siya nakikita, magaling ka naman kumanta [kaya] ipagpatuloy mo ‘yung singing career mo. Kasi baka sumikat ka, at baka ang tatay mo ang [tumawag] or [magpakita] sa‘yo,” she advised her.
“Tulad ng dalawang apo ko, 17 si Venice, 18 si Lorin, 15 years nilang hindi nakita ‘yung tatay nila. Ngayon nagkita-kita na sila so baka swertehin ka [rin]," she added.

Annabelle's advice, however, didn't only resonate with the contestant but also with Ruffa: “Itong si mommy, nakakaiyak ‘yung mga comment. Parang ako ‘yung natamaan," she said while wiping her tears, before her mom revealed: “Sa totoo lang, everyday ka na umiiyak. Tama na ‘yan."
This then prompted Vice Ganda to ask what happened, which Raymond made clear was nothing serious and are just "tears of joy."
“Yes, tears of joy kasi after 15 years nga nag-reunite na sila," Ruffa explained.
