Cristine Reyes revealed that her love for Derek Ramsay remains because they continue to be close friends even after their break-up.
“Actually hindi po siya nawala kasi nag-stay pa rin ang love ko for him as someone na special. Hindi lang friend kasi more than two years kaming more than friends but we tried maging lovers but hindi kami lovers talaga. I think as close friends,” she explained.
Reyes also reiterated that neither Ynna Asistio, Dennis Trillo nor Rayver Cruz caused their separation.
Asked of the real reason behind their failed romance is, Reyes said: “I think hindi pa siguro ako ready. Gusto ko siya, gusto ko si Derek, but parang hindi ako ‘yung normal, hindi ako mapalagay kapag sa kanya.”
Reyes said she felt guarded when she was with Ramsay that she can’t truly show her real personality.
“Kasi nung boyfriend ko siya, kasi loka-loka ako and mapagbiro. Parang puwede ko pa rin ba gawin sa kanya yon? Parang hindi na kasi baka mamaya sermonan niya ako. Pero kapag magkaibigan kami, nasasabi ko sa kanya lahat,” she explained.
The actress, meanwhile, admitted that she regrets not showing much effort when they were still together.
“Hindi ako masyadong um-effort so ‘yun ang medyo nagsisisi ako. Si Derek kasi sobra sa akin. Nag-usap kami ng personal. May iyakan. May ilang days na wala ako sa sarili. Minsan hindi ko siya kinakausap. Kasi ako may topak talaga ako. Minsan ayaw ko siya kauspain. Gusto ko mapag-isa lang,” she said.
Ramsay and Reyes became close friends after working together in the 2011 movie “No Other Woman,” which also starred Anne Curtis.
It was in August 28 when they officially became a couple but they took everyone by surprise when they confirmed their breakup on October 7.
Despite this, the two have maintained a good relationship. (MNS)
