NANG MAKAUSAP NAMIN si Derek Ramsay, sinabi nito na never siyang natukso sa kahit na sinong babae nang maging sila ni Angelica Panganiban. “Wala, kahit tawagan pa ninyo si Angel. Papatayin ako ng nanay ko,” say niya sa presscon ng No Other Woman.
Never rin niyang ginawa na pagsabayin ang dalawang babae sa buhay niya. “That’s the worst thing kung magsasabay ka. I think, my parents will disown me if I did that. They were saying I did that to Solenn and Angel (palayaw ni Angelica) but I think, you see it now. It took us one year before Angel and I got together. I wasn’t attractive to Angel in that way, right away with someone. Mahaba ‘yung mga relationship ko,” dugtong pa niya.
Kahit naging ex-girlfriend ni Derek si Solenn, still best of friends pa rin sila. Maging ang pamilya ng aktor ay close din sa model-actress. “Sina Angel at Solenn magkaibigan,they on Twitter together,” sambit niya.
Reaction ng mommy ni Derek sa mga issues tungkol sa third party at kay Angel? “Yung mga intrigang ganu’n hindi namin pinapansin. Alam rin ng mommy ko, hindi ko alam ngayon kung nag-uusap sina Angel at mommy ko. Mas may communication sila ngayon kaysa sa akin. When issue came up like that, my parents don’t call me about that.”
Sa sariling pananaw ni Derek, mga dahilan para ang isang lalaki ay magloko? “For me, the biggest things is kapag mechanical na ang buhay mo. Parang hindi na siya relationship, it’s more like a job.”
In case na kasal na sina Derek and Angel, na- anticipate kaya niya na may possibility na magka-problema ang kanilang pagsasama? “Kasi ako, before I go to sleep I always talk to Angel, find out if anything’s wrong. If may problema, you know, gusto ko nang ilibing bago matulog. That’s some of the advice my dad gave me and I remember on his 60th birthday, ‘yun ang sinabi niya na napaiyak talaga ako. He said, they went so many things but if they have a chance to do all over again, he do it with the same woman. So, always talk, you need to talk, you need to open-up, if you don’t…” paliwanag ng aktor.
Hindi itinanggi ni De-rek na maraming babae ang dumaan sa buhay niya noong younger days niya when he was in college. “Do I have fun? Yes, I have fun. Ha! Ha! Ha! Tapos na ‘yun, those days are over. When your teenager, going out lalo na kapag athlete ka. I grow-up with four women in my life, three sisters and a mother. That’s why, I have lots of respect for women and hindi ako ‘yung tipo ng lalaki na mambabastos ng babae even if it’s a one night stand. If you gonna tell me na sige, you have fun in the evening the next morning you kick them out the door. Hindi ko kayang gawin at hindi ko pa nagagawa ‘yun.”
Ilan na ang naka-one night stand ng hunk actor? “Hindi ko pa nagagawa ‘yun. Ha! Ha! Ha! I’ll be honest with you, you go out, have fun. You got drunk noong nasa college ako. You have fun. You have a few beers and then you meet somebody pero ‘yung one night na… High school, I was committed to sports. First girlfriend was 19. Actually it’s more sa college,” kuwento pa ni Derek.
