MANILA -- Actress-host Kris Aquino on Monday night explained why she is close to former Kapamilya actor Derek Ramsay.

In her show "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" with co-host Boy Abunda, Aquino praised the actor for being a good friend.

Earlier that day, the actor surprised the host-actress on the set of her morning show "Kris TV" on Monday. This after two went out on a movie date along with Aquino's two sons.

"I think it was just really a nice gesture from a friend who cares who knew that I wasn't feeling great over the weekend. Kapitbahay nung 19 East kung saan siya nakatira so dumaan lang siya on his way to play golf," Aquino told Abunda, without mentioning the name of Ramsay. "See napag-usapan nating lahat di natin binanggit ang pangalan, ang bongga!"

"He is a wonderful person. Any girl would be the most blessed girl to have him as a best friend, a boyfriend, a husband or whatever," Aquino continued.

"Mabait maasahan at matiyaga kahit iyak ako ng iyak ay pinagtitiyagaan niya ang iyak ko. Kahit hindi siya ang iniiyakan ko, nagtitiyaga siya," she added.

When Abunda reacted that it must be love, Aquino just laughed.

Last April, reports circulated online that Aquino was dating Ramsay after the host-actress posted a quote about having a second chance in love on her official Instagram account and then thanked Ramsay for always being there for her.

The quote read: "For every girl with a broken heart, there's always a boy with glue gun."

Ramsay, who moved to the No. 3 network TV 5, had a short-lived relationship with sexy star Cristine Reyes last year after his break up with long-time girlfriend Angelica Panganiban.
