As the ABS-CBN TV series Nasaan ka Maruja aired its finale episode, fans can't halp but wonder what actress Kristine Hermosa thinks about the idea of dating her co-star Derek Ramsey. The female actress plays the titular role of Maruja Martinez in this Saturday afternoon soap opera that aired it final episode yesterday, August 8.
In the final episode, Ross (Derek) finally admitted to Cristy that he was not Gabriel. Michael (John Estrada) finds out the true Gabriel is still alive. Cristy (the modern-day reincarnation of Maruja) meets grown up version of Gabriel (portrayed in the past by Piolo Pascual). They have a touching reunion that suddenly becomes violent. An enraged Ross arrives at the scene and shoots Cristy. Michael tries to grab the gun from Ross and in the middle of their scuffle, Ross is shot and killed on the spot.
After a few days, Cristy recovers from her gunshot wound and becomes a dedicated caretaker of Gabriel (now portrayed by Dante Rivero). He passes away, leaving Cristy with her present love, Michael.
In the August 8 episode of Entertainment Live, Kristine answered some queries from her fans regarding the current status of her love life.
She hinted that even though there is nothing really concrete going on in her love life right now, there are plenty of people who continue to make her feel loved.
Question: Parehong gwapo si Derek Ramsey at Piolo Pascual, kung pareho silang manliligaw sa 'yo, sino ang pipiliin mo sa kanila? Sino ang malapit sa iyong puso?
Kristine: Medyo mahirap naman ata yang tanong mo. Piolo. Kasi si Derek taken na [his girlfriend is Angelica Panganiban]. Baka mapagalitan tayo diyan. So si Piolo na lang.
Q: Sa mga nalilink kaya Jericko, sino ang mas bagay? Si Carmen Soo?
K: Hindi mo naman ako sinama? Ako, siyempre ako. (laughs)
Q: Kung walang karelasyon si Dieter ngayon, nagkabalikan kaya kayo?
K: Parang nawala naman ako sa question na yun. Hindi ko alam, e. Panahon lang ang makakapagsabi. So, hindi natin alam.
Q: Pero ibig sabihin nandyan pa kayo para sa isa't isa?
K: Oo naman. Hindi mawawala yun.
Q: Malapit na magtapos ang Nasaan ka Maruja, pwede ba naming malaman kung nasaan ka sa love life mo ngayon?
K: Kung nasaan ako? Nandito pa rin. Nag-iisa pa rin ho. Siyempre may mga nagmamahal, pero nag-iisa pa rin. Naiintindihan niyo ba? Ako rin hindi. Pero may nagmamahal.
