Why in the world did My Husband's Lover end?
When My Husband's Lover came to an end after 1 year in October 2013, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Lally Agatep-Soriano (Carla Abellana), Eric del Mundo (Dennis Trillo) and Vincent Soriano (Tom Rodriguez). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a My Husband's Lover reunion disappoint people?
My Husband's Lover aired from 2013-2013 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Abellana said she's not sure if My Husband's Lover would work today. “I don't want to see old Lally Agatep-Soriano,” she told a journalist (Abellana turned 34 in June). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a My Husband's Lover movie?
In a recent interview, Tom Rodriguez said he can't imagine a My Husband's Lover reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Carla Abellana has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a My Husband's Lover movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a My Husband's Lover film, Dennis Trillo stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
