Rosanna Roces had been in a problem with his son Onyok recently. Although they had misunderstandings which were highly sensationalized through social networking site such as Facebook, she has to beg off to spare them from the press since he is not a showbiz personality after all, and instead focus on more important problems and issues on the government and the country as well. This is just a matter of mother and son problem that was blown out of proportion, a family problem that only they themselves can have found solutions. However, she gave an exclusive interview with Cristy Fermin to clear the issues aired over TV5 showbiz news.
