Diether on Kristine: "I'm not willing to give her up."

Apr 12, 2007
"Nagputukan kami dun," says Diether Ocampo about spending his Holy Week with Kristine Hermosa in a firing range in Pampanga.


Last Holy Week, Diether Ocampo finally had all the time in the world to do the things he missed doing like sending e-mails, checking all his paper works and whatever was in his filing cabinet. This made his Holy Week something of a breeze.



Instead of doing the usual beach scene or going out of the country, the actor preferred to stay in his abode—until an invitation from someone he couldn't resist came.



Kristine Hermosa must have gone listless during the long lull of the Holy Week, so she decided to ask Diether to accompany her in going to a firing range somewhere in Pampanga. And shoot they did!



This was disclosed to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) by Diether himself at the press conference of Rounin.



"Nagputukan kami dun," said Diether. "Mas marami siyang [Kristine] na-asinta. Mas mahusay sa aking bumaril, e. Sa sentido ang tama, dun sa target. Doon ko nga napagtanto na mahusay na pala siyang humawak ng baril. At wala pa raw siyang practice nun, ha!"

What's the real status of his relationship with Kristine?



"Ganu'n pa rin naman. Nanliligaw pa rin ako. Yun naman ang gusto niya, e," Diether answered.



Diether also clarified rumors that he and Kristine are still living together.



"It's not true na we're living together," he stressed. "Siya lang ang nagpa-feng shui ng bahay ko. At matagal na 'yon, before ko pa siya ligawan uli."



Back to zero then?



"Oo, balik na naman sa dati. Ligaw-ligaw uli. There are many factors and reasons na rin kasi. Una, hindi mo naman siya puwedeng madaliin. Kasi nga, nagkasundo na kami na medyo lie-low na muna. Kasi nakita naman namin na may mga bagay kami na di puwedeng gawin. O may mga gusto naman kaming gawin na hindi naman namin magawa," explained Diether.



Does he want Kristine back?



"I'm not willing to give her up," he said. "Kung ito o ganito ang gusto niya, e, di sige. Wala namang problema kung gusto pa rin niyang magpaligaw, e. Basta ako, siya pa rin ang liligawan ko. Kung pinahihirapan man niya ako sa ganitong paraan, parte na rin siguro ito ng gusto naming mangyari sa napagdesisyunan naming maghiwalay muna at huwag munang maglagay ng commitment sa pagitan namin."

A lot of people are concerned with Diet's look these days, he's getting too thin. Some are speculating that Diet might be doing something that people wouldn't want to hear.



"Like drugs? No way!" he said. "Dahil sa tindi ng schedule ng taping namin sa Rounin, na nag-overlap with a soap I am doing, yung Palimos ng Pag-Ibig, wala na nga akong time para sa sarili ko. Puro trabaho na lang ang ginagawa ko, but I'm not complaining. Pero para naman maparatangan pa ako ng ganyang mga bagay, e, hindi na 'ata fair."



So, if it's not drugs, what then? Sex?



"Diet nga ako sa sex now, e! Call me celibate!" he said laughing.



How is the annulment case with Kristine?



"Maski ako naguguluhan sa mga nangyayari, pero nasa korte na ito, ipina-process na kaya wala naman akong masabi," said Diet.



Apart from being on television, what else keeps Diet busy?

"I still have my band," he said. "Pero hindi na Blow ang name nito, pinalitan na namin ng D-2X [pronounced detox]. We have two guitarists now, ako na lang ang bokalista. We still do our gigs every once in while. So you can catch us at Ratsky's on weekends.



"At nakadagdag din sa pagpayat ko yung pagiging hands-on ko sa KIDS Foundation which I put up. Most of my time din, e, devoted sa pagbibigay ng seminars sa mga kabataan. Sila ang sinusuportahan ko ngayon.



"Gusto kong makatulong. Sa buhay natin ngayon, importante talaga at dapat na maging priority natin ang health natin. Kaya ang naisip kong bigyan ng tulong at pansin ko, e, ang mga cancer patients ng Philippine Orthopedic Hospital. I am doing it hands-on at certified ito ng DSWD.



"Para sa akin kasi, you have to give back something to them, e, sa mga mangangailangan ng tulong mo. Pay it forward. Sa dami ng blessings na dumating sa akin, sa buhay ko, I just want to share. Dito, walang pagkalugi dahil hindi man bulsa mo ang napupuno ng kikitain mo, puso ng ibang tao naman ang napupunan mo."

Is this a prelude to his entering the political arena?



"Noon pa, marami nang nag-i-invite sa akin to get into politics. E, sabi ko naman, pwede naman akong tumulong kahit na wala ako sa pulitika. So ngayon pa lang, nilalagyan ko na ng period ang bagay na 'yan. Nilalagyan ko na ng period ang pagsasabing hindi ako papasok diyan," ends Diether.
