'I can't hate this person': Dina Bonnevie on forgiving Vic Sotto, Coney Reyes

MANILA, Philippines — Dina Bonnevie shared it was her daughter Danica Sotto who made her realize about reconciliation and letting go of what happened between her, her ex-husband Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes. 

The actress, who is currently seen in the top-rating afternoon drama "Abot Kamay na Pangarap," was the guest on the Friday episode of the popular afternoon talk show "Fast Talk With Boy Abunda." 

Boy and Dina's conversation started about the latter's parenting style, which she revealed that she was the more disciplinarian one than Vic when their children, Danica and Oyo Boy, were growing up. 

It then touched on setting the rules for their children when they were both living between two houses when Dina and Vic separated after six years together. Dina was a young mother at 23 when she and Vic ended their relationship. 

Dina revealed that she and Vic did not have a conversation with their kids about their separation, but the kids were able to figure out their family's situation when they noticed that Vic has not been going home to their house. 

"Well, masakit man isipin at balik-balikan, it was the other way around because the kids started noticing na, [they were asking] 'How come Papa's not coming home?'," Dina recalled. 

Two days became four days of Vic not coming home until the host-actor told his children that they were to spend weekends with him, while their weekdays will be with Dina. 

"It's every mother's wish to have her whole family, not a broken one. So when you remember the pain your children felt when they told you that, you feel so helpless e. You wish you could change things but you can't," Dina recalled the times her children asked about her and Vic's possible reunion. 

Despite their separation, Dina said they never fought in front of their kids. 

“We never fight in front of the kids and I never badmouthed their dad to the children. Never!"

“Never ko siyang siniraan sa mga anak niya and I would always say, ‘You only have one dad... and you have to respect him. Whatever it is," she said. 

Dina admitted that she and Vic had a conversation about Coney Reyes, who was Vic's co-host in "Eat Bulaga." Vic and Coney are parents to Pasig City Mayor Vico
