"I'm gonna meet with my family this weekend, aakyat ako sa Tagaytay.
"Pero hihintayin namin ang offer ng Channel 2.
"But we had a great meeting today.
"Sir Gabby had very nice things to say to me tungkol sa pagkatao ko, which I really appreciated.
"Sinabi ko naman sa kanya na my mind is open for anything.
"Ang gusto ko lang nga is kusa rin 'yong nanggaling sa kanila and then I will just compare whatever..."
Dagdag pa ng TV host-actor, "One step at a time. This weekend, I'll meet with my family.
"Kung umabot 'yong offer, siguro we can come up with a decision by next week."
NOT ABOUT THE MONEY. Sa isinagawang meeting nila kahapon, sinabi ni Derek na naging totoo sila sa kanilang pag-uusap.
"My dad also expressed what he felt," sabi ni Derek.
"The first thing that we laid on the table is that this is not about the money.
"This is definitely not about the money."
Ayon kay Derek, hindi na rin naman makukuwestiyon ang kanyang loyalty sa Kapamilya network dahil minsan na rin siyang hinikayat lumipat pero tumanggi siya.
Kuwento ng aktor, "Two years ago, I was made an offer but I remained loyal to this network.
"Hindi ko na babanggitin kung ano, pero I was offered two years ago.
