We may not see it, but ex-lovers Angelica Panganiban and Derek Ramsay are A-okay and have been working to rebuild their friendship.
"Time din lang talaga... TIME," Derek said in an interview with PUSH when asked about how they patched things up.
The 40-year-old actor admitted that it was Angelica who first broke the ice between them.
"She greeted me one time on my birthday, and out of the blue, I gave her a call. And we did a little bit of chitchat, reminisce, ganun," Derek shared.
"And then after that, nagpapatayo siya ng bahay noon and she’s trying to decorate and I told her I’m willing to help her, give her my contacts. Tapos naging busy na kami, we didn’t talk, " he added.
Derek revealed that their latest chitchat was just a week ago when Angelica was in Siargao with a common friend.
"Nakausap ko si Angel just when I got back from Italy kasi kasama niya 'yung kaibigan ko sa Siargao. Pagtawag ko sa kaibigan ko siya 'yung sumagot," he shared.
"So, ‘Uy, kumusta?’ Basta ganun. I haven’t spoken to her in a long time,” Derek relayed, recalling their conversation.
Now that Angelica is embracing her singlehood and Derek is very much in love with his model girlfriend Joanne Villablanca, he just wishes for the former to find the right guy at the right time.
"Angel will be okay. Angel will find the right guy," he strongly believes. "Imposibleng she doesn’t. She’s a wonderful lady, she’s a sweetheart, so she’ll find the right man and that’s what I hope for her -- to find the right guy who’ll treat her right."
It can be remembered that Angelica revealed in the April 2013 issue of Star Studio magazine that her six-year relationship with Derek ended over the phone.
