Dennis Trillo and Tom Rodriguez’ Performance in ‘My Husband’s Lover’ Receive Positive Feedbacks

June 19, 2013 by  

In last Sunday’s pilot episode of GMA’s new Sunday noontime show “Sunday All Stars,” Dennis Trillo and Tom Rodriguez, the male lead stars of the network’s controversial primetime series, “My Husband’s Lover” titillated the studio audience when they did a duet of their soap’s theme song, “One More Try.”

The two actors have become a popular topic on social networking sites and blogs lately because of their “believable” portrayal as gay lovers in the said primetime series.

In “My Husband’s Lover,” Dennis plays as Eric, an openly gay man who has had an affair with Vincent, a closet bisexual portrayed by Tom Rodriguez. Eric and Vincent’s high school romance ended when Eric had to migrate to the United States. Years later, Eric returns to the Philippines and hopes to reignite his failed romance with Vincent only to find out that his ex-lover is now married to a woman – Lally (Carla Abellana).

Vincent struggles to wipe out any trace of his romance with Eric and start life anew with Lally but despite his efforts, it seems that fate has a different plan for him and his ex-love Eric. The more Vincent tries to avoid Eric, the more they are brought together by chance, usually in very awkward situations.

In Monday night’s episode (June 17), Vincent introduced Eric to Lally as his long lost “friend.” Although the meeting with Vincent’s wife deeply broke his heart, Eric tried to conceal his emotions and pretended to have moved on from his feelings for Vincent. Lally, on the other hand, was unaware of the fact that there was an emotional tension between her husband and Eric at that point.


What’s interesting about the show is that it presents to the audience a concept that is new – at least in the Philippine TV arena – yet timely. It also does not take sides in the issue of homosexuality or homosexual relationships. Instead, it portrays the matter as something that exists in the real world and in a way that is tasteful and non-offensive to either those who are for or those who are against it. In short, it is not pornography presented in the guise of art but pure drama that revolves around – not homosexuality – but the feeling of “love” in general regardless of sexual orientation.

“My Husband’s Lover” was a risky move for GMA but after two weeks of consistently winning in the ratings and trending on Twitter, it seems that the network has already won in its gamble.

Also, despite of the homosexual/bisexual theme of the series, the program seems to appeal also to (straight) female and male audience groups. In fact, the show is discussed not only in parlors but also in gyms, coffee shops and in offices.

The series also stars Kuh Ledesma, Roi Vinzon, Glydel Mercado, Chanda Romero, Karel Marquez, Bettina Carlos, Victor Basa and Kevin Santos.

Catch the intriguing and thought-provoking story of “My Husband’s Lover” airing weeknights after “Mundo Mo’y Akin” (approx. 9:30pm) on GMA-7.

    kailan pa naging maganda ang ipromote pa ang ganitong klaseng relationship…maaring realidad eto pero tama bang ipromote pa? makasalanan ang relasyong lalake sa lalake…magisip isip ..ano nman ang moral values nito lalo na sa mga manonood na kabataan.. panwagan sa MTRCB bakit pinapayagan ang ganitong malaswang tema sa national TV…

    Aminin man o hindi, maraming taga dos ang nanonood ng MHL. Sa tv5 nga they admit na tlgang pinanonood nila ang MHL. Kaya nga yung mga bashers and haters ng MHL todo2 ang paninira sa show. Hindi nila matanggap na naunahan cla nga GMA na mka gawa ng ganyang serye. Confident kc cla sa mga men nila unlike sa dos.

    This show doesnt teach people to have a same sex relationship. This is simply showing the reality of what is happening in ones individual lives..showing us how gays are also an important individual who needs to be long as there is no lascivious scenes shown in air, then the show has the ryt to continue on television. The show itself projects high decency.those calling the attention to investigate the show is indeed bitter. Trying to ruin the show which obviously has caught the attention of mass viewers.. idiots as they seem.. dont pretend your being to be as clean as a whistle.. open wide ur eyes and look at ur mirror and u will see the reflection of mud in your face!

    I watched MHL first time yesterday, june 24. Magagaling ang 3 lead stars, including Tom R. who I believe is a relative newcomer. Maganda din ang theme song. Carla is beautiful; Dennis is great, as usual; Tom is a revelation! Hope to be able to watch it every night… very interesting… well-made…
