Master Disaster Engagement Dinner—Or Troth and Consequences
The guests breathlessly await Don Fernando’s proposal to Isa-bunintheoven-bela. It’s as if nobody that’s anybody there can honestly believe he’s going through with this numskull and muy but muy passé, aka archaic, idea of marrying the woman simply because she was dumb/careless/naive enough not to use birth control. (Yes, I do marvel at a 21st century Super Brainiac Bidnezwoman in her thirties, with x-number of advanced degrees, not using birth control of some sort--especially when purposely seducing a handsome, successful bidnezman--if not to trap the sorry SOB into marriage. Duh, Telerisa!) Anyway, reluctantly DonFerd does his duty. Bela blares out a repetitiously resounding “¡Sí,sí,sí!” to everyone’s dismay. (ITA with Yo mama Yolanda—“Enough already! We heard ya the first set of Sí’s!)

Posting of Tuesday's Mi Corazón Es Tuyo# 27 by Julia and Jarifa
Isabitch got Fer to reluctantly agree to have their engagement party the next day and to give her a credit card for expenses.
Isa went to the house to try to suck up to the kids. Guille and Alex attacked her with water guns, making the non-colorfast dye from her blue blouse run all down her white pants.
Up in the playroom, Alicia, Sebas, and Luz made a drawing of a witch and put it on the dart board. It was obvious to anyone but Isa that the witch represented her, but she insisted on joining in throwing darts at it, which cracked them up.
Then Isa tried to drop in on Nando, but he was busy having a big smoochfest with Ximena in his bedroom so she let them be. I don't think Nando ever got yelled at for having his novia in his bedroom! Maybe Fer didn't know about it.
Isa spent a lot of time being snarky and rude to Ana in a thin veneer of politeness, Ana was ostentatiously overpolite back, and Isa babytalks to everyone, including Nic and Fer.
Ana had a little meltdown and cried on Fanny's shoulder. Fanny agreed to stay and not leave Ana and the kids alone with the witch.
Fanny's horrid ex-boyfriend overheard Laura and Ximena talking about how Fanny's in love with the quesadilla woman's son, and he attacked Leon when he came to the school to see Fanny.
Johnny came to the house dressed as an exterminator and visited with Manuela and claimed to Manuela that he and Ana are siblings (she wondered how they know each other). Manuela told him that the patron is marrying the tarantula, which of course makes him think Ana is available to him again. He and Ana got in a fight in the driveway and Fer arrived just in time for the rescue.
Fer took Nando with him to buy an engagement ring. The clerk had weirdly yellow hair. Nando told Fer all about his relationship with Ximena and he thinks he's in love.

Some points from last night:
After giving Ana the book , Isabela makes a comment about them being able to get along in a civilized manner for the good of Alejandro and the kids. As soon as she leaves the house, Isabela is calling her "la nanaca". In a later meeting with Ana, Isabela calls Ana on her dry skin, poorly conditioned hair and dark circles under her eyes and then askis if she hasn't been sleeping well. Ana says she has been having some nightmares about a really creepy crawly thing and Isabela tells her that disappointments in love cause insomnia and that the book she gave her can help her forget it and let go of the impossible. Finally she suggest a corrector for her dark circles, but then says that she realizes Ana does not have the ability to get fine cosmetics but is sure if she goes to her local store she can find a knock-off. And so it goes.
Nando ends up forgiving Ximena and so he finally has a girl friend and Fernando approves.
Jennifer is all upset and Nico does not know why. She leaves him at lunch without a word about what is wrong. Nico is desperate he does not know what is going on.
Isabela convinces Fernando she needs an engagement party like tomorrow. She will arrange it all. She needs a credit card in her name and also the most important of all: an engagement ring. Yolanda is all excited about the monetary prospects and actually claps her little hands.
Isabela tries to make peace with Fanny for the good of her dad and siblings. She actually clenches her fist when Fanny does not give her a positive reaction.
Next stop for Isabela is with the rest of the kids where Isabela tries to broker a peace and ends up getting shot with water guns full of some sort of blue liquid that stains her white outfit and joioms the kids yelling "Muera!" "Die!" at a picture of a witch not realizing they mean her. The twins later apologize about the water guns with their fingers crossed.
Next stop for Isabela is with Alicia, where of course Isabela calls attention to her zits.
Mi Corazón Es Tuyo# 27
Isabela's rage after each failed attempt is apparent.
At the end, Fernando takes Nando with him to get the ring. Turns out that even though Fernando has lost contact with his bro Diego, Nando has been facetiming. with him and knows all about what he has been up to and him coming to the wedding. Fernando makes the comment that his bro still has not forgiven him. Nando asks him whatever happened between them that they don't talk. We never hear an answer.
Earlier, Johnny shows up as an exterminator and tells Manuela that Ana is his sister. Manuela is all over him.Fernando is not with a guy like Johnny being around his house and tells Ana he does not want to see him in his house again.
Also earlier, Ana confides in Fanny what is going on and how much she loves her dad and how desperate she is. Ana gets a call from her boss at Chicago that he needs her to dance tonight and when she hesitates he reminds her of her debt.

De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero #165 - Wed 8/27
In the lawyer's office, Diego explains to Nat that he's owed her the divorce for a while and hands her the papers. I believe cake is also customary…no?
Eleazar downs a glass of champagne in an effort to exorcise the ghosts of Carmen's past enamorados. Carmen declares she's alllll his and after some steamy smooches, retreats to the bathroom to get…ahem…more comfortable. Unfortunately, El is still having auditory hallucinations of the exes in question and starts checking the room for them. Carmen, in a gorgeous purple negligee set gets El back on track. They fall to the bed and I seriously hope the audible commentary from Los Ex playing in the background while the animated hearts float by was only for us and not playing in El's head.
The lawyer explains that since they were both in agreement to divorce in the first place, all they have to do is sign. Natalia refuses to sign and walks out. Hey, now, I'm SURE there's a mandatory declaration of "No te voy a dar el divorcio!" (I'm not going to give you a divorce) that's supposed to go with that.

Mi corazon es tuyo, #28, 27 Aug 2014... Diego is home!! and instantly gets smitten by Ana... Fanny and Leon have their heavenly hash and Leon gets a sour after taste...
“When you are really really in love, you have no control… and besides that, you give it all… all.”
Ana finds out tomorrow will be the engagement party.
Ana in the kids room with homework…
Ana sees the drawing of the witch at the kids room… Seba tells Ana Isa even shot (or pushed) darts at her own drawing. They found it funny, Ana not so much. Ana will help them all with homework but first we have to talk. Tomorrow your dad will ask for Isa’s hand… She explains that Fer has to ask permission to Isa’s mom to marry Isa. What about if she does not give permission? That won’t happen… Alicia says she will stay in her room… Ana says you all have to be there, be well dressed and be well behaved. The twins suggest painting Isa… Ana says no pranks allowed.
Isa and MIL at the store with the urge to shop and spend…
Isa and her mom have been shopping for their dresses for the party… first is first and second is second… Isa mocks her mother’s logic. MIL asks the saleslady if they don’t have something more revealing, more provocative. MIL wonders what the engagement ring will look like.
Fer in the library with the engagement ring…
Ana comes in Fer’s library, he is holding the engagement ring. He puts it away. He wanted to talk to her. Fer wanted to tell Ana about tomorrow… already know… it shows you can’t hold any secrets here. Fer asks Ana to talk to the kids about the engagement party… Ana says already did with the small ones. Ana asks permission for her to go out for a while, he asks where… she just responds its personal, I will leave the kids eaten and in bed… what if I had a problem with it? … I would still go… (she leaves, he repeats to himself… ‘something personal’.)
Two filthy jerks in the Chicago office with the debt
Teofilo is arguing with Johnny, its good but it could go better… Johnny wants his money back… Teo is ok but will talk to his accountant before giving his money back… But warns Johnny he will deduct what Johnny owes him.
Ana is on the stage and Jenny has another pain… Ana is done… Johnny comes out and tells Jenny he is the loser… (Univ cut out what Jenny told him…)
Ana in the driveway with the tree branch…
Ana arrives at the house in taxi… runs into Diego who just arrived in his motorcycle… She does not know who that is so she grabs a tree branch and tries to hit him on the head… he blocks her swing… They stare at each other… (until end of beginning credits after comm…. So they had to freeze for quite a while).
Ana mistakes Diego for a burglar… he says he has been called many things, usually handsome, charming… but never a burglar… she threatens she will put him in jail… been there, done that too. But never for burglary… She asks if he is mocking her. He says he is only avoiding getting his head busted open. After some more back and forth insulting and calling names, he is trying to introduce himself ‘my name is Diego… what’s yours?... is it perhaps Isabella?’ Ana takes even more offense in that. He wants a hint so she tells him three letters… beginning with A… he guesses Ana. … Well, glad to meet you, I am Diego Lascurain’. Ana is shocked, takes his helmet off to take a better look… sighs… then she reacts and changes attitude to ‘servant’… even tries to help him roll his bike in…

Mi corazon es tuyo Tuesday 08/26/14 Time Warner blows
After arguing with customer service last night I finally gave up and have to call them again this morning. My apologies for all this, I had no way of watching the episode and am beyond angry that not only was I unable to get a recap up but that a company I've worked with for years basically called me a liar and said the conversation I had with their rep did not happen the way I represented it. This blows.

He feels this is effeminate of this son, and takes a knife and destroys the picture. Juliana tries to stop him to no avail. He tells his son, be a man and go work the land. He goes.

Enjoy the week, Telemundo fans!
TELEMUNDO Y MÁS -- Reina de Corazones: week of August 25, 2014 - PAGE ONE
♪♪ Dingdong, the Putz is dead ♪♪ (thanks, Sara!). Any bets on the longevity of OBD or OBM (Odious Bitch Miriam)?
Navier knows that Big O is his father. Will Big O's stony old heart soften when he finds out who his son is?
Does Navier know that Esmeeth is his mother?
Will Rocky Balboa be saved?
Will the Queen of Clubs turn out to be someone we already know? (Because the writers are playing with a full deck, right? Kelly thinks they seem like good writers who thought up a completely insane story after a night of binge drinking.) Penny -- who pointed out how often we see love on short couches -- has a very interesting theory on the subject of the fourth queen...
For a refresher on last week's happenings, Jean (who can stop ANY time she wants to) has compiled the most recent recaps in a dropbox here.
Que Pobres Tan Ricos: #165 and #166: 8/24/14: El Grand Fin
With tears in her eyes Vilma makes her statement: Since he took over the presidency when Mati could not anymore, (because Alejo himself gave her medication that made her confused). He used the Editorial to launder money that came from his other felonies and criminal associations… (DA asks her if she has evidence, since she was the one suspected guilty of those felonies) She says but of course, there is a notebook full of numeric codes of all his overseas accounts… encoded codes from his criminal associates, information about his relationship with those criminals… which I can perfectly decipher/decode…
