It looks like GMA-7's gay-themed series My Husband’s Lover attracts not only Kapuso fans, but also celebrities from different TV networks. In the said teleserye, Dennis Trillo plays a homosexual named Eric who had a secret affair with Vincent (played by Tom Rodriguez). Carla Abellana is cast as the (previously) unsuspecting wife named Lally.
Earlier today, July 18, My Husband’s Lover lead actor Dennis expressed the happiness he felt when he received a text message from ABS-CBN TV host Kris Aquino.
The photo he shared on Instagram contained a screenshot of a message from the Kris TV host that read: “Hi Dennis. I asked Popoy for your # so I could tell u just how superb u r in My Husband’s Lover. Congratulations. From dialogue delivery to body language, u r just so genuine in ur portrayal! I’m now a HUGE fan.”
In the photo caption, Dennis wrote, “This Made My Day… Thank you!!!”
Late last week, My Husband’s Lover lead actress Carla Abellana posted on her Instagram account a photo collage of Twitter messages she received from fellow celebrities.
She even captioned it, “What network war?”
These messages came from It’s Showtime and Gandang Gabi Vice host Vice Ganda, Star Magic comedian Chokoleit, radio DJ Mr. Fu as well as movie and television director Joey Reyes.
Direk Joey (@DirekJoey) tweeted, “Face it: #MyHusbandsLover is not only about Dennis & Tom. It is pretty much about Carla Abellana who is proving herself to be an ACTRESS.”
Comedian Chokoleiet (@chokoleitWITS), also made a similar comment about Carla, “After Iza Calzado left GMA, Carla Abellana shines bright, proving she has all the makings of an ACTRESS in it’s real sense. Swabe, sakto.”
Mr. Fu (@mrfu_mayganon), on the other hand, posted this simple message for Carla, “i love you, carla abellana.”
Likewise, Vice Ganda’s Twitter post praised Carla and the show’s other leading man, Tom Rodriguez.
The comedian (@vicegandako) said, “Superb acting Carla Abellana and Tom Rodriguez!!! I was moved.”
Vice Ganda was referring to the intense scene last Friday, July 12, when Carla’s character, Lally, discovered the secret relationship of her husband Vincent (Tom) with Eric (Dennis).
Based on Nielsen data, the said July 12 episode performed well compared to rival shows on other networks.
