Derek Ramsay Says ABS-CBN Is Not Ready To Mend Fences With HimDerek Ramsay left ABS-CBN for TV5 in 2012. Because of this, reports said the Kapamilya network never really forgot or forgave the actor for leaving them for the Kapatid network.
There is apparently evidence that ABS-CBN is not ready to mend fences with him because there was allegedly a "memo" that says his name cannot be mentioned when the trailer for his movie is shown on the network.
Derek said he will never spite ABS-CBN for anything as simple as that. He has so much respect for the network because he started his career there and learned many things there.
He also denied that he's using his friend Kris Aquino to reach out to the network. He doesn't want anyone to be involved in his plan to reach out to ABS-CBN. If both parties are ready to fix their issues, then that would be better, he said.
"I’ve been wanting to talk and reach out, but I guess that’s all in time."
It is obvious that ABS-CBN is not yet ready to fix the issue with him. It hurts him because he also respects the network but at the same time, he knows that everyone is different and they handle situations differently.
Derek doesn't mind that ABS-CBN has that "memo" against him. He's just thinking that they are doing it because he is not a talent of ABS-CBN.
He also didn't visit Kris anymore on the set of "Kris TV" because he's not allowed to. When he earlier visited her, he even made sure no one would see him there.
Kris, however, still called him to come on the set. Derek said that's what everybody loves about Kris because she's very open.
TV5 allows him to guest on the other networks' shows. He was even a guest on "The Ryzza Mae Show" of GMA-7. That's what he loves about TV5.
Derek said he never regretted the decision he made to transfer to the Kapatid network. He owes them a lot, and he is very happy with the network.
The actor-endorser's contract with TV5 will be until next year. But even after the end of his contract, Derek made sure the Kapatid network is his priority because "they took good care of me."
ABS-CBN also took care of him, but he had his reasons why he didn't want to remain a Kapamilya. Out of respect to the network, he never divulged what these reasons are.
He wonders why it was so hard for ABS-CBN to let go of what happened in 2012. He explained that before he accepted the offer of TV5, he waited for ABS-CBN to make theirs. He wanted to know what he is worth to them as an artist.
He never talked with any networks when he's contract with ABS-CBN hasn't expired yet. He showed loyalty by staying with them for six years even though his contract was only for two years.
Derek said he didn't have work for four-and-a-half years, but he never said anything against the network.
After he saw the offer made by ABS-CBN, he realized that he needs to move on and open new doors for himself.
