DEREK RAMSAY admitted that he was the one who broke up with ex-GF Andrea Torres and he did it only by phone. 

Of course, he was quickly bashed by netizens who said it’s so ungentlemanly of him to end a relationship only by cellphone and he doesn’t even have the decency to tell it to Andrea in person for a good closure.

He said quite a mouthful in an interview with him: “Yung sa amin ni Andrea, it was actually ako ‘yung… may problema na nangyari na, I guess, nagbigay sa akin ng sign na, I think, this relationship will not work because we have different values. 

"Hindi mali ‘yung values niya, hindi mali ‘yung values ko. Pero ganito ako pinalaki, ganoon siya pinalaki. Hindi ko na aatakehin ‘yun, hindi ko siya babaguhin, hindi niya ako babaguhin. 

“So I told her, ‘I think that this is the end of this relationship because we cannot see eye to eye on this matter. 

"So I think it’s just best na kumalas na tayo ngayon rather than lalaki pa, and then two, three years down the road, maghihiwalay tayo, babalikan natin ‘to, kasi nga iba ang views natin sa problemang ‘yan.’ 

“She agreed naman. ’Yun nga lang, siguro kung may regret ako, is that it came up over the phone. Actually, dapat magkikita kami noon. Ang nangyari, it came up over the phone, pero with no disrespect. Hindi namin dinisrespect ang isa’t isa. She agreed to it also.”

When asked about his relationship with fiancee Ellen Adarna, he says he’s very happy and satisfied with her, adding: 

“Hindi ko yata kayang ma-express into words, pero kita n’yo naman sa mga actions ko, sa mata ko, I’ve never been this happy in my life.” 

In her own social media account, Andrea wrote this statement and it could very well apply to Derek: 

“Keep calm and let karma finish it.” 

A netizen answered more concretely for Andrea: “Magkaiba sila ng values kasi si Andrea, hindi nakipag-life in sa iba’t ibang lalaki na naging boyfriend niya. 

"Hindi rin dalagang ina. So now, we know kung anong values ang gusto ng Derek na yan. Ayaw niya ng values ng babaeng malinis ang rePUTAsyon.”

Some netizens it’s not nice of Derek to blame Andrea’s family for her kind of upbringing. 

In defense, Derek said he just opened up about it to end all the speculations about their breakup. He says, to defend himself, when asked in an interview: 

“I did not really speak about it. Hindi naman ako nagbanggit ng mga detalye. Bale respeto ko ‘yun kay Andrea and sa parents niya. I was just asked kung may kinalaman ba ang parents ni Andrea and I just answered honestly. 

"Yes, I’ve always been honest. I didn’t give the details. It’s more of yung values namin were very different. I’m not saying my values are better than hers or hers is better than mine, mine is right and hers is wrong. 

"Siguro nabanggit ko na, kasi gusto kong matahimik na lang, e, Kasi, I’m in a relationship now, I’m getting married, so I just want it all to be over and done with. I guess I just I want to put it to rest para matapos na.”

He says he did “para matahimik na lang”, but this is not what happened as it triggered more negative reactions from bashers. Someone said he was on with Andrea for more than a year and he was on with Ellen for only two months. 

The netizen adds: “Doon sa two months na yun, we became quickly sure that Ellen is the one who you want to marry? Well… good luck na lang sa inyo.”

Even the latest photos of Derek and Ellen they posted on social media showing a half naked Derek on top of Ellen with her legs wide open were bashed by netizens who said: "Ang hahalay nyo!" "Malalaswang PDA". "You deserve each other!"

But one netizen defended Derek and wrote: 'INGGIT lang kayo kasi hindi kayong pinapatungan ni Derek! Eat your hearts out!"

How we wish all the publicity they're getting would help forward their careers. As we all know, Derek has not had a movie or TV show for more than a year now, while Ellen has a sitcom on TV5 that is not really rating as much as they'd want it to.
