Derek Ramsay says he has no plans of leaving ABS-CBN


072111-derek_main.jpgDerek Ramsay refuted previous reports that he threatened to leave the Kapamilya network after TV Patrol released a blind item concerning a certain actor’s secret marriage to a non-showbiz girl many years ago. He stressed that there’s no reason for him to transfer to another network since he’s very happy with his current projects. “No, it’s not true. People know me. I’m a man of my word. May kontrata ako sa ABS-CBN. I’m thankful for the projects and the trust that they give me. And I’m not going to transfer if I have commitments and projects with my network. I haven’t entertained [thoughts] of moving to another network. So yeah, that’s where I am right now. I am concentrating on my work and the movies that I’m doing,” said Derek in an exclusive interview with Cinema News last July 18.

Speculations that the blind item was pertaining to Derek quickly circulated on the internet. But now that the whole issue died down, Derek claimed that he has no ill will towards whoever started the rumors. “No. Everyone is just doing their job I guess. That's it, that’s all I have to say.”

When asked if his family got worried about the negative publicity about him, Derek said that he’s confident that he has their full support no matter what.  “My family won’t be affected because we stand by each other's side all the time. We got affected by the cancer issue because I had a scare. I thought that maybe one of my family members was ill. But as for the last issue, not at all.”

On a positive note, Derek is grateful that his relationship with Angelica Panganiban is stronger than ever. His Twitter followers could attest to the fact that they’ve become more expressive about their feelings for each other.  “It’s a part of my life, it’s a part of my relationship with Angel. We’re going to receive more and more intrigues. But we’ll both cross the bridge when we get there. Ang importante hindi kami nagpapaapekto, our relationship will remain strong, and we both move forward after every issue,” he added.
