What should a woman do if the man she loves is in love with another man as well?
This is the intriguing premise of GMA-7's provocative drama series titled My Husband's Lover.
Topbilled by Carla Abellana, Dennis Trillo and new Kapuso talent Tom Rodriguez, My Husband's Lover aims to defy conventions of traditional drama soaps. In a release provided by GMA, it indicates that this show "aims to show that love is not defined by sexual preference and no matter how different it is from the love we know, it could still be equally pure, selfless and true."
Completing the cast are Pancho Magno, Bettina Carlos, Karel Marquez, Kevin Santos with special participation of Glydel Mercado, Ms. Chanda Romero, Roi Vinzon and Ms. Kuh Ledesma.
In the series, Vincent (Tom Rodriguez) got his girlfriend Lally (Carla Abellana) pregnant while they were still in college. They decided to get married even if Vincent's mother Elaine (Kuh Ledesma) was very much against it. Thus, Lally's married life was never smooth-sailing because of Elaine. But because of her ove for her husband, Lally endured the hardships of dealing with her mother-in-law.
However, when Lally got pregnant with their second child, Vincent suddenly became distant and cold towards her. Lally felt that Vincent was being unfair to her so she decided to leave together with their children.
Vincent loves their kids so much so he tried to win back his wife by proposing and by getting married with a blessing from the church.
Lally and Vincent's married life improved after the church wedding. But unknown to Lally, Vincent is keeping a secret from her--a secret that he has been hiding ever since he was young.
He is a closet gay.
Vincent has kept this secret hidden for so long, afraid that he'll destroy his family.
However, everything changes when Vincent crosses paths again with Eric (Dennis Trillo). Eric was and still is Vincent's great love.
Unlike Vincent, Eric is openly gay and he is still in love with Vincent as well. Because of their strong feelings for each other, they started having an affair.
Vincent tries to hide the affair from Lally by showering her with gifts and attention. However, Lally's intuition tells her that something is wrong even though everything in her married life seems fine. She started to investigate until she discovers Vincent's darkest secret.
Will Lally give up on her husband or will she fight for their marriage? Will Vincent choose Eric over his family or will he stay with his wife and children?
Directed by Dominic Zapata with an original concept by Suzette Doctolero, My Husband's Lover shows a different kind of love triangle that will tackle acceptance, forgiveness and real love as it aims to redefine the concept of marriage.
My Husband's Lover premieres June 10, 2013 on GMA Telebabad.
