The controversial Philippine soap opera, "My Husband's Lover," ended on Friday, October 18.
Although the kissing scene did not make it to the finale episode of MHL because of the MTRCB rule that man to man kissing is phohibited on television, “My Husband’s Lover” left a mark and a statement that will change the way people think about the issue.
In his Instagram account, talent manager Popoy Caritativo posted a photo of Rodriguez and Trillo kissing which was the scene prohibited by MTRCB from airing live.
"The Kiss. This is the kiss that we all waited for. I am posting it now just to let all MHL fans know that yes, Vincent and Eric kissed. And now that MHL is ending, please allow me to just gloat and take pride in my two boys TomDen for being very brave and professional in doing the scene. Well, not just in doing the scene but in accepting the roles of Eric and Vincent which any actor with less talent and courage will not even consider doing. I am proud of the fact that for four months, they lived and breathed Eric and Vincent. Their passion and love for their craft was evident in their performances. And it paid off. They gave you two REAL people who we all loved, hated at times, but nevertheless understood. So, as we bid farewell to Eric and Vincent, I would just like to say thank you, Tom and Dennis for trusting me and for being very brave and fearless and for taking the risk. I love TomDen!"
Rodriguez said in an interview that he was disappointed over non-airing of kissing scene with Dennis Trillo in the finale.
"Pero, wala sa amin ang desisyon, e. Pero sa DVD version, dun na 'ata ipapakita."
