Bagamat muling nakikitang magkasama sina Derek Ramsay at Kris Aquino, muli namang nilinaw ng aktor na magkaibigan lamang sila.
Nitong mga nakaraang linggo, napabalita ang panonood nila ng sine at ang pagbisita ni Derek sa set ng morning show ni Kris sa ABS-CBN, ang Kris TV.
Pero ayon kay Derek, hindi pa rin ito dapat bigyan ng ibang kulay.
“We’re close, we’re very close. There’s no…
"We’ve gone out to watch a movie but there’s no date that happened,” pag-uulit ni Derek nang makausap ng ilang miyembro ng entertainment reporters sa press conference ng Trophy Wife kaninang tanghali, July 10.
Dagdag pa niya, “We’ve been both very vocal, we’re very close friends.
“You know, she knows a lot about my life that I’m comfortable telling her and she gives me advice on those aspects.
“With her, she also asks me for my advice.
“For someone like that to ask me for some advice, it goes to show how much she values me as a friend.
“She’s definitely been a big help with me.”
Kahit sobrang malapit na magkaibigan, hindi raw naisip ni Derek na hihigit pa rito ang kanilang relasyon.
Sabi ni Derek, “She’s my friend and I love her dearly as my friend.
“It’s hard to answer questions like that.
“But the way I see it right now, no, magkaibigan kami.
“We’re in constant contact with one another but there’s a line… and we haven’t got past that.”
Nang tanungin kung posibleng ma-in love si Derek kay Kris, sagot ng Kapatid actor, “Any guys can fall in love with Kris Aquino.
“It’s just that, you know, our paths didn’t meet that way.
“She’s very smart, very unique, we all know that.
“It’s just that our paths didn’t go that way. We didn’t meet that way.”
Hanggang ngayon, nananatili ang desisyon ni Derek na maging single muna dahil pa rin sa sunud-sunod niyang trabaho.
Aniya, "Sa ngayon, wala nang oras. Sa ngayon, puro segue, segue ako.
"It’s not my priority right now.
"I’m dating but it’s just so hard with the responsibilities that I have right now with work, it’s just unfair for both parties.
"Hindi ko mabibigyan ng attention agad, so parang pointless din to be in a relationship."
