One show I’m looking forward to from GMA 7 is Suzette Doctolero’s creation, My Husband’s Lover headlined by Dennis Trillo, Carla Abellana, and Tom Rodriguez. This is something different on TV but it’s not different in the real world. A wife suspects her husband is having an affair. Imagine her surprise when she finds out it’s not with another woman but with another man instead. And then picture Dennis Trillo playing that other man. Oh MY GOSH! I’m glad a network is brave enough to tackle the subject matter.
I couldn’t help but think of Matt Damon in The Talented Mr. Ripley when I saw this picture of Dennis Trillo. I doubt My Husband’s Lover is as dark as the latter movie but I’m pretty sure it would be very emotional and nerve-racking. I mean what would you do if you find out your husband is having an affair with a gay man? It would be very easy to say you’d leave faster than you can say divorce but you really wouldn’t know until you’re in that situation. So the best thing to do is watch what Carla Abellana’s character would do, no?
Seriously, I’m excited to watch Dennis Trillo portray a gay man. He’s one of the best thespians in the industry so there’s no doubt he’ll give justice to his gay role. I’m bit nervous for Tom Rodriguez though coz this is his 1st project in GMA 7 after leaving ABS-CBN and it is such a sensitive issue to be delving onto. I’m sure they’ll all do great.
My Husband’s Lover will start this June on GMA 7′s Telebabad.
