Friday, April 11, 2014
DEREK Ramsay clarified that his friendship with Queen of All Media Kris Aquino was not meant to further their individual showbiz careers.
The actor was faced the entertainment press Thursday when he signed a new movie contract with Regal Entertainment.
When asked about his recent involvement with Aquino, Ramsay maintained that he's good friends with the television host. He also reiterated his earlier statement that Aquino did asked for guy advice from him.
"We're friends. In front of the cameras, we're very good friends, not just to me but she's a friend to the family. She asked advice on something and I gave her advice from a guy’s perspective," he said.
"She's done the same thing to me. She's given me a lot of advice and helped me out. Ang ganda nga ng sinabi niya na I've given her the chance to return the favor."
He added that aside from him, Aquino is also friends with his parents. Ramsay then clarified earlier reports that the Presidential sister went out with his family.
The actor explained that his father, who is running a security business, went to Aquino's house to hold a survey for the modification of her security system.
When asked if he felt used after his name was dragged and linked to Aquino, the actor replied: "I don’t feel like I’ve been used. She’s Kris Aquino, she has everything. I’m the one who has a friendship with Kris so I know kung ginagamit ako."
He added: "Nagulat nga ako nang sinabi mo na ginagamit niya ako. All the time I was hearing na ginagamit ko siya. Para sa akin, I've worked hard naman in this industry. I think given naman a lot to get to where I am. It's not like nanggagamit ako ng tao para makarating ako kung saan ako ngayon."
As for Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, who is dating the tv host/actress, Ramsay said the television host asked for his advice about love and life in general.
"Not exactly about Mr. Bautista. It’s just about love in general, and life in general. I’ve given her my advice and I think that should be just between the two of us. She’s gotten the advice from me first-hand. I think that’s between two friends," he ended. (Sunnex)
