English synopsis of 'Al Diablo con los Guapos'
Alejandro, son of the Belmonte family, is a typical rich guy who runs away from his obligations and considers himself irresistible to all women. He is intrigued by Milagros because she considers him an intolerable, selfish brute; her frank and authentic style end up captivating him. Little by little, between complaints and arguments, the two fall in love, although Milagros resists her feelings - since Alejandro has the reputation of being a womanizer and she fears being abandoned as her mother was. Besides, Alejandro is officially engaged to Andrea.
Constancio Belmonte, Regina's son, hates his family and doesn't try to hide it; he especially hates his wife Luciana, because her father forced him to marry her, separating him from Rosario, the love of his wife, who was expecting his child, but who then disappeared without leaving a trace. Since then, Constancio hasn't troubled himself over the whereabouts of his child; nevertheless, Regina hasn't stopped trying to find her grandchild.
When Alejandro and Milagros finally confess their love, they must confront the family's opposition, above all that of Andrea, an ambitious woman who became Alejandro's girlfriend to assure her future, but who is also Constancio's lover. Andrea convinces Hugo, Alejandro's cousin, that he should help her separate them (Alejandro and Milagros).
Hugo accepts because he is in love with Milagros, and his campaign of vicious lies succeeds. Milagros agrees to marry Hugo, but on the day of the wedding, Alejandro kidnaps her and takes her to a cabin. Convinced that it is he whom she loves, Milagros returns with Alejandro to the house.
They decide to defend their love, without knowing a terrible blow awaits them. Regina has discovered that Milagros is the lost daughter of Constancio. Milagros and Alejandro separate with broken hearts, deciding not to see each other again. Meanwhile, Constancio and Luciana, for fear of losing their prestige and social position, remain silent. As it turns out, Milagros is Constancio's child - but Alejandro is not.
I'm not sure but it sounds like Muñeca Brava with Natalia Oreiro and Facundo Arana.
Oreiro and Arana are very good actors and I liked the telenovela.
It's a romantic comedy that looks good. I never saw Muneca Brava, but that plot sure does sound familiar.
No Puede Ser
Cesar bring it on...
"Sos mi vida" ended last summer here. It was good but nothing special IMO. To be honest, I was watching it because of Facundo...
I am looking forward to the recaps
