"The Legal Wife" Is The Most Memorable Teleserye, Vilma Santos SaysStar For All Seasons and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos considers "The Legal Wife" as one of the country's most memorable teleseryes to date.
The teleserye stars Angel Locsin, Maja Salvador and Jericho Rosales. Angel is Vilma's son's, Luis Manzano, current girlfriend.
The series is also a top-trending topic on social networking sites Twitter and Facebook.
Vilma said the program is unique because it reflects how Filipinos value the family. "It shows the importance of the relationship of husband and wife, and the things that they go through when facing trials."
The teleserye is due to end this week, with its finale to be aired on Friday. The producers promised "the most exciting finale" ever for the series.
Vilma said that the series showed that when you are the legal wife, you are really in control. She's an avid follower of the series, which also stars JC de Vera.
In "The Legal Wife," Monica (Angel) found out that her husband, Adrian (Jericho), and her best friend, Nicole (Maja), have an affair. She fought for her husband and just when they were about to leave for Canada, she found out that Nicole is pregnant with Adrian's child.
She left for the United States, bringing their son and unborn daughter. Three years have passed and she's now back in the Philippines. Adrian realized it is Monica he really loved, so he is fighting the annulment case she filed against him.
Nicole continues to pin after Adrian, using their son, Jacob, to win his affections.
Like many viewers, Vilma also has an opinion of what Monica should do in the end. "If I’m Monica and I’ve already exhausted all means (to keep the relationship) and yet both Adrian and I are still miserable, then it’s time to part ways."
The finale week of "The Legal Wife" will air every night after "Ikaw Lamang" on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
