But even with the success of their movie and their love team gaining more fans, both of them certainly do not believe in faking a relationship for the sake of their love team. They prefer to be truthful to themselves and most especially, to their fans. “Na-friendzone namin ang isa’t isa,” he says with a giggle, “Kaya it’s clear to us na our relationship is friends lang.” In fact, Barbie is in a relationship with Kapuso actor Jak Roberto.

“Jak is very understanding. He knows that this is just for work and very professional din si Jak and of course, si Barbie. If it’s for work talaga, i-se-set aside niya ‘yung pagkakaroon ng boyfriend so ‘yun ‘yung nakakatuwa kay Barbie.” When asked if he approves of Jak for Barbie, Derrick remarks, “Oo naman. I don’t have a say naman because I am not Barbie’s father,” he jests. He then turns serious, “As a friend of Barbie, of course, I approve because mabait si Jak and he is very humble.”

Day 3! Uwian na!

As for Derrick, there is no one who could possibly get jealous of his sweet scenes with Barbie because he is single. He is also not searching for Miss Right at the moment. “If love comes, thank you,” he says as he flashes a wide smile lets out a loud laugh. “Gusto ko someone who loves her family. Someone who is God-fearing, of course, kasi you can never go wrong if a girl is God-fearing. If she is religious, parang it all follows.”
