Actor Robi Domingo did a love scene with Andi Eigenmann for the ABS-CBN soap, "Kahit Puso'y Masugatan" in 2012, but he swore never to do another one again.
The TV host shared that it was the cause of his biggest fight with Gretchen Ho, his girlfriend of three years.
He was still courting her when he did the love scene. Domingo said Ho cried and did not talk to her after the scene.
"I had to promise her that it would not happen again," said Domingo.
He added that the scene did not unfold according to the script, which originally called for the actors to pretend to make out under the blanket. But the late director Wenn Deramas went for a different take on the scene.
"But on the set, Direk told me to kiss her on the lips 15 times. I wasn't ready for that," said Domingo.
Aside his girlfriend, Domingo said his teachers in the Ateneo de Manila University were also disappointed that he was in a love scene. He was on his fourth year in the Ateneo at the time.
"I also heard one week's worth of homily from the priests, who were my mentors. They made me remember that I'm a public figure, and I have young people looking up to me," added Domingo.
Domingo's parents were also "turned off" by the scene.
"I will not do it again, not because of the girl or the art, but because of the experiences I've had after. Lots of people looked down on me and told me, 'Robi, this isn't your craft,'" confessed the actor-TV host.
