- The Better Woman is scheduled to end this month
- It suffered from low ratings for three months
- Andrea Torres and Derek Ramsay said the series will be memorable for them
Sexy Kapuso actors Andrea Torres and Derek Ramsay expressed their happiness and satisfaction after working with each other for three months on the romance series The Better Woman.
Andrea said that the show is now one of her memorable projects in showbiz.
“I really had fun working with Derek and I enjoyed my role in the show as twin sisters Jasmine and Juliet na sobrang magkaiba ang mga ugali,” said Andrea. “This will remain to be one of my most memorable shows na nagawa ko ever and I’m so glad positive naman ang feedback sa performance ko.”
Echoing Andrea’s words, Derek also said that the series was memorable for it paved the way for him to develop a friendship with the Kapuso actress.
“Memorable din for me ang The Better Woman kasi dito nabuo ang friendship namin ni Andrea,” added Derek. “Working with her is a breeze as she’s very professional and I’m really amazed sa husay niyang umarte in interpreting two contrasting roles. I also love my character as Andrew, which is a very challenging role. Unang-una ang hirap gumawa ng love scenes meant for television kasi andaming restrictions. Andrew has no intentions of cheating on his wife, Jasmine, but the scheming Juliet succeeded in making love to him and pretending to be his wife kaya nabuntis pa niya ito. Ang gaganda ng mga twist sa story so people who watch it regularly tell me they’re really wondering where the narrative would go and what will happen to all the characters.”
He also talked about their seemingly real bed scenes which sparked rumors about his alleged relationship with Andrea.
“Andrea and I are both professional kaya naman we make sure na kapani-paniwala ang love scenes namin and all our love scenes are take one lang lagi, especially as husband and wife in the show,” said Derek. “Andrea is very seductive, pero hindi ka puede magpadala sa eksena. You have to constantly remind yourself that you’re just playing your roles and she has learned to trust me. But we have really gotten to know each other better while doing this show and we now have a deeper friendship. And we hope that friendship would continue kahit matapos na ang ‘The Better Woman’.”
How does Derek define a “better woman”?
“For me, the better woman is one who makes you feel that I am a good person, that I am the better man,” he answered.
GMA Network’s The Better Woman will bow out of its timeslot in two weeks. It premiered last July 1 on the network’s Telebabad line up.

The Kapuso series suffered very low ratings from its pilot until now. It was first placed in the second timeslot then pushed to a later timeslot when The Killer Bride started getting high ratings in the third timeslot.
Despite getting low ratings from the start, The Better Woman managed to hang on.
In its last few episodes, Jasmine has been kidnapped and held captive by Ervic Vijandre. Will she be able to escape and set things straight with Andrew?
