Derrick Monasterio To See Biological Father In The U.S.

DERRICK MONASTERIO is looking forward to his first trip to America as it’s going to give him the chance to see his biological dad again, a Jamaican-American. “The last time I saw him was four years ago nang bumisita siya rito for three days,” he says. “This time, kasama ko mom ko (former actress Tina Monasterio) sa U.S. so magkikita rin sila. I’ve been to Europe twice pero first time ko sa U.S. kaya excited talaga ako.”

Derek will be gone for a week so he had to advance taping some scenes for “Alice Bungisngis and Her Wonder Walis” where he plays the role of Slade. Because of this, he wasn’t able to go to Indonesia to help Gwen Zamora promote the movie “The Witness” where he sang the theme song.

“Sayang nga, but extended kasi for two weeks ang ‘Alice Bungisngis’ until June, so di ko puede iwanan, but yung isa ko pang show, ‘Tween Hearts’, will conclude at the end of this month. Malungkot as this is my first show, pero masaya rin kasi we ran for nearly two years at undefeated kami on the air ng kahit anong show na itinapat sa amin.”

Is it true his mom is sore at Sarah Lahbati because she made him expect that they’ll be on but then turned him down? “We heard about that but it’s not true. Walang ganun. Hindi naman ako nag-expect dahil hindi naman natuloy ang panliligaw ko sa kanya.”
