DEREK RAMSAY says he’s amused with all the bashing he’s getting after Ruffa Gutierrez posted his photos with Ellen Adarna while they’re having dinner in his house in Ayala Alabang.

“When I found out we all live in the same place, iba-ibang streets lang, I invited them all for dinner,” he says. “Along with my friend, John Estrada, with whom Ellen is now doing a new sitcom for TV5. 

"Actually, dapat, kasama rin si Kris Aquino, but she’s not feeling well daw. This happened on January 11, last Monday.”

He’s aware that Ruffa is taking their photos which she later posted on her own social media account and on her vlog. But he didn’t expect it will have repercussions like what is happening now.

“Ayun, biglang na-link na kami ni Ellen,” he says. “Nakakatawa kasi the last time, I am gay na raw, lalaki na ang gusto ko, ayoko na sa babae, pero ngayon, si Ellen naman. 

"Ako mismo, naguguluhan na sa mga issue. Ano ba talaga? We had fun sa dinner namin, so I intend to invite them all again sa bahay ko for another get together.” 

As much as he’s tired of all the bashing he gets and just wants to shrug it off, he feels sad that some people are being needlessly implicated.

“Kamukha ni Pops Fernandez,” he adds. “Nagkasama kami kasi friend siya ng mother ko tapos, kami na raw. May kinalaman daw sa breakup namin ni Andrea (Torrres). Nakakahiya kay Pops. 

"Hindi ko talaga alam kunsaan nangagaling lahat ng ganyang tsismis. Pero nyo alam nyo naman sa showbiz, makita lang kayong magkasama, ang conclusion agad, kayo na.”

Definitely, the new project meant by GMA-7 for him and Andrea, “Sanggang Dikit”, will no longer push through now that they have called it quits. 

But Derek says the Kapuso network is offering him a new drama show. No details yet about the story and casting, but they might start taping it in March.
