MANILA, FEBRUARY 23 2012 (MANILA BULLETIN) By ROWENA JOY A. SANCHEZ -
Actor Diether Ocampo shared his meaningful message to close friend Kris Aquino regarding her recently annulled marriage to star cager James Yap.
According to the Kapamilya hunk, he learned the news through Kris herself, who had sent him a message saying she's "now officially free.”
“I'm very happy for her. Sabi ko nga 'what I can tell you is for you to start a beautiful story,'” he said in an interview posted on abs-cbnNEWS.com.
Although they rarely see each other due to their respective busy schedules, Diether assured that his friendship with Kris remains intact.
"Kanina lang binisita ko siya sa set… Friends pa din kami. Hindi naman nawawala ‘yon… Kahit di kami nagkikita, kung kailangan [ang] isa't isa… we are always there for each other," said Diether.
It’s interesting to note, though, that Kris had once said in an interview that she had “stopped talking” with Diether because her siblings felt uncomfortable with his good looks.
"Sinabi ko sa kanya na hindi naman puwedeng maging friends talaga ang guwapo at maganda nang hindi mabibigyan ng malisya," Kris was also quoted to have said.
Diether, nevertheless, maintained that he’s “in touch” with Kris’ family, apparently thanks to their common denominator: philanthropy.
He and Kris even did charity projects together in Bacoor, Cavite as well as Tarlac, after they wrapped up shooting for their 2010 Metro Manila film fest entry “Dalaw.”
In spite of their closeness—and noticeable cat-and-dog relationship—Diether emphasized that he never courted Kris. As of now, he’s single, happy, and going out “on dates.” His last reported relationship was with model Rima Ostwani, which ended in 2010.
Hoping he won’t end up a single man for life, Diether said, “Well I guess hindi naging mapalad sa akin na magkaroon ng stable na relationship. Sa trabaho kasi namin napakahirap na makahanap ng partner who would really understand what you do and would be really dedicated and support you all the way and tatanggapin ka nang buong-buo.
“If makahahanap ka ng ganoon, siguro I think it's time for me to settle down," said he.
