Cristine Reyes Reveals What She Likes In Derek Ramsay As Her New Boyfriend

CRISTINE REYES is aware that many fans of Gerald Anderson don’t approve of her to be his leading lady in ABS-CBN's new soap “Bukas na Lang Kita Mamahalin”. What can she say about this?

“I look at it positively,” she says. “Ibig sabihin they care for Gerald. Pero sana, bigyan nila ng chance ang tambalan namin. Kasi I believe na-handle naman namin nang tama ang respective roles namin. And as a couple on screen, okay kami, may chemistry naman. I think, wala akong nakikitang mabigat sa tambalan naming dalawa. Gerald is very driven as an actor so everytime we have a scene together, nacha-challenge talaga ako. I play his girlfriend who stays loyal to him kahit nabilanggo na siya dahil sa bintang ni Diana Zubiri na ni-rape siya ni Gerald.”

Her former BF Rayver Cruz plays Gerald’s rival for her love in the show. Is it true she’s the one who requested him to be added to the cast? “Hindi, a. Friends naman kami and we’re so comfortable with each other, but I think si Gerald ang nag-request sa kanya para maging kontrabidang anak ni Dina Bonnevie.”

So how’s her lovelife now after being linked to a gym instructor who’s allegedly married? “Hindi naman totoo yun. Ba’t naman ako papatol sa may asawa.”

What about Derek Ramsay with whom she’s now shooting “My Trophy Wife” for Viva? “What about him?” They’re often seen going out together. “Yes, lumalabas kami. Niyaya pa niya ko nang tumulong siya doon sa mga binaha ng Typhoon Maring. Namili kami sa supermarket at pinamigay namin sa evacuation center.”

What does she like in him? “We’re both baliw and outgoing. Yung pagiging close niya sa family niya, yun ang pinakagusto ko sa kanya. Ilang beses ko nang na-meet ang parents niya and they’re okay.”

It’s said Derek has dumped her non-showbiz GF called Alexa in favor of her. “I cannot answer that. Siya na lang tanungin nyo.”

One writer later called up Derek and asked him if it’s true he and Cristine are now an item. He didn’t hide it and said “Yes, for one day pa lang. It’s totally unexpected. I asked her if it’s okay to share it with everyone and she said yes, so yes, kami na nga. We’ve been good friends since we did ‘No Other Woman’ two years ago at never nawala yung friendship namin.”

Derek said after he broke up with Angelica Panganiban that he doesn’t want to have another girlfriend from showbiz “kasi mas magulo”. Obviously, he has changed his mind about this that’s why he has now hooked up with Cristine. We hope this isn’t just a part of the promo for their movie, “My Trophy Wife”.
