Love, obsession, betrayal in ‘Borrowed Wife’-A A +A
Thursday, January 16, 2014
“MAY sapat bang dahilan para ang iyong asawa ay iyong ipahiram?” This is the attention-grabbing premise of The Borrowed Wife, the first GMA drama offering for 2014 about love and obsession, and how a betrayal can change one’s life.
This highly-dramatic and intriguing soap opera is top billed by Camille Prats and Rafael Rosell with TJ Trinidad and Pauleen Luna.
The Borrowed Wife revolves around the intertwined lives of Maricar (Camille), Rico (Rafael), Earl (TJ) and Tessa (Pauleen) and how one secret sets their destinies in a shared trajectory towards love and redemption.
In the series, Maricar is a kind-hearted and simple woman who works at the spa and wellness business owned by her best friend, Tessa. She always follows what Tessa says, thus becoming a second fiddle to her bossy best friend. However, Maricar inadvertently out-values Tessa when Rico courts and eventually marries her, because Tessa covets Rico for herself.
Maricar chooses to be a full-time wife to Rico and mother to their child, Joana. But everything changes when Tessa comes back with a vengeance. Tessa seduces Rico and Maricar eventually finds out about the betrayal of her husband and her former best friend. It is already too late when Rico realizes what he has done to his wife because Maricar suddenly disappears.
Maricar meets Earl in a secluded beach resort where an accident ensued. When she wakes up after the accident, she is disoriented, confused and can’t remember anything.
Will Maricar regain her memory? What will Earl do if he finds out that the woman he claimed as his own, is actually Rico’s wife? What will Tessa do if she finds out that Maricar is still alive and Sophia and Maricar are one and the same person? Will Rico still be able to take back his wife who he thought was dead?
Find out how director Gil Tejada Jr., creative director Jun Lana, head writer Denoy Navarro-Punio, writers Ken de Leon, Cristine Novicio and Angeli Delgado, and the rest of the creative team will resolve the highly dramatic story of love and betrayal.
The Borrowed Wife will debut on Jan. 20 after Villa Quintana and Magkano Ba Ang Pag-ibig on GMA Afternoon Prime. (PR)
