In the TNS national ratings, "DMII" ranked 4th, with "Tayong Dalawa", "May Bukas Pa", and "TV Patrol" in the top 3, but nevertheless beats "Darna", which came fifth, by more than 2%.

Then came the primadonna issue. Kristine has been rumored to be too demanding in the set of "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" like asking for shortened work hours just like veteran actress Lorna Tolentino.

There are also talks of Kristine failed to rport to some in-location tapings since she didn't like the place. The taping was allegedly continued when her demand/request was granted.

Cancellation/delays of tapings were also due to her "attitude problems" and this irked her co-stars in the show.

But Kristine Hermosa's camp categorically denied the issue.

"No, it's not true! Everything is going smoothly. We don;t have problems at all, not that we heard of anything, especially something that involves Kristine," Kristine's handler Alan Real said.

About the tantrums; "Unlikely. That's actually funny. She is not like that at all. She is not one to throw tantrums just so she could have her way." Real added.

“She doesn’t have to ask for anything at all because everything is in the contract to begin with. She wouldn’t have signed up for the show if she will have problems with the schedule and everything,” Real said on the "shortened shooting schedule" issue.

About the issue that Bea Alonzo will replace her if she continues with her tantrums, "That's absurd. Untrue." stressed Alan Real.
