MANILA, Philippines - Sultry star Cristine Reyes said that she is hoping to spend Christmas with her sister, Ara Mina.

"I hope, I hope. Hindi napuputol yung hope ko," she said.

She also stressed that until now, she is doing her best to reach out to Mina.

"Hindi po ako tumitigil sa pagri-reach out na maayos. My sister Heidi is communicating with her and she still doesn't want to talk to me. I think hindi pwedeng madaliin so huwag nating piliin," she said.

Mina filed libel raps against Reyes last April after an alleged dispute over the remaining balance for a house they bought for their mother.

Mina filed charges of libel and grave coercion against younger sister Cristine Reyes not to claim money but to "teach her a lesson" for her attitude.

In the interview, Reyes also cleared issue that she badmouthed her own mother.

"Okay kami ni mommy so hindi ko alam kung saan nanggaling yung isyu na pinagmumura ko siya at hindi ko minura ang mother ko ever," she said.

Reyes said that she and her mom are in good terms.

For the coming year, Reyes said that she's only wishing for a good health and peace of mind.

"Health kasi laagi akong sakitin at continued blessings," she said.
