MANILA If there is diplomatese in diplomatic affairs, maybe there’s 'entertainese' in the entertainment industry?
If diplomats are experts in the art of double-talk, maybe we can say the same of our actors.
Take, for instance, Derek Ramsey, who has just admitted that he is going out with the ABS-CBN (Channel 2) contract artiste Christine Reyes, but denied being the third party in her breakup with the actor, dancer, and singer Rayver Cruz.
“[Y]es, we go out, but we’re just friends,” Ramsay, the star of TV5’s fantasy series ‘Kidlat’ (Lightning), recently told showbiz reporters. “There’s no truth to rumours that I was the third party in their breakup.”
Why would a macho and popular actor like Ramsay go out with the controversial young actress if there was nothing between them?
Are they just shopping buddies, huh? Why wouldn’t he go out always with his male co-stars instead?
The rumours of the two having an affair started from last November, when they were seen together at the Coco de Roro Resort, in Batangas province.
But he reasoned out that he was with his family during his four-day stay there while she was with her friends. He stressed that Reyes and Cruz were then an item, as she was even using the latter’s car.
Ramsay didn’t have much to say as well when asked about another rumour that Reyes is now also being liked with Dennis Trillo, an award-winning actor, singer, and fashion model.
“I have no idea about that,” he said. “But if you ask me, Christine and I are just friends.”
People are used to the fact—or the lack of it—however, that in the Philippine show business, most denials are actually confirmations of truth.
