Due to its relatable storyline, nerve-wracking scenes and lines, and the compelling portrayals of its actors, many of us nowadays are completely hooked with the controversial primetime series Halik, topbilled by Jericho Rosales, Yen Santos, Yam Concepcion, and Sam Milby.
But did you know that four years ago, a teleserye with the same theme of infidelity, in which Echo was also among the headliners, used to engross the viewers with the intense confrontations and unforgettable exchanges between two women, who fell in love with the same man? It’s The Legal Wife, with Jericho also leading the cast together with Angel Locsin, who played the dutiful wife Monica, and Maja Salvador, who portrayed the plucky mistress Nicole.
Who could forget Monica and Nicole’s explosive and notable exchanges that’s been parodied over and over again:
“Walang sa ‘yo, Nicole. Akin lang ang asawa ko!”
"Paano mo siya nilandi? Ano una mong tinanggal? 'Yang bra mo, 'yang panty mo o ‘yung konsensiya mo?"
"Oo, Monica. May nangyari sa amin ng asawa mo! At nang naulit at nang naulit at nang maulit, hindi na lang ‘yun sex! It was making love!"
In this drama, instead of playing a character being cheated upon by an unfaithful wife in his current series, Jericho played the role of the two-timer Adrian, who always end up in the middle of the relentless skirmishes between Monica and Nicole. The two women used to be the best of friends but because both of them refused to give up on their love and whatever relationship they had with Adrian, their ties severed and turned out to be each other’s stiffest rival.
Let’s reminisce some of the memorable catfights, striking dialogues, and quotable lines from the 2014 romantic drama series that caught our attention and remained etched in our minds up to the present through this gallery.
