PEAM # 15: 3/29/13- Where Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone, Oh Where, Oh Where Can He Be?
We start this epi with Chucho being demoted and the ransom demand of 50 thou for Sanson.
Jess is on the phone with Fern talking about Sanson and Ricardo, one of the three Sillies is hiding behind the wall partion, and he is all ears. Fern tells Jess she is only getting 5 % of that ransom and she so isn't happy with that. Their ultimate objective is to get Chucho fired of course! Jess wants her job back, of course. Sanson is barking, he is still in his prison, the bathroom of course, so Fern goes to quiet him and Sanson runs out. HA! Sanson is tearing up the sofa and the shoes and whatever his little mouthy pooh can get ahold of. Probrecito! Sanson that is, not Fern.
The Secretaries are all gathered, and Tablet Jefe is right, noone, but noone ever works, and they are talking about Sanson too. They decide to say a little prayer for the little pooch for his safe return. Awww.
Rog has gone to the storage in his house. He has determined he will use the "package" moola for the ransom to be paid for Sanson. He has a coniption fit when he sees the dresser is gone. Ruh Roh, he thinks he's been robbed! Later, he mentions the possible theft to his maid, and she informs him that in fact, Chucho now has the dresser, double Ruh Roh, cause if looks could kill, Chucho would be dead!

Lost Dog, Reward if Found
Amor Bravío #155 (Uni 150) Wed 3/27/13 "Nat Now Knows, Yago is Yucky as Ever and Other News de Aculco"
Mena here, and I am back again burning the midnight oil. Hold the page for me again, okay? Viewerville has lots to say about life in Aculco and then some ……. especially since these are the last capitulos of this story. Your job is to keep the comment board open, that’s it, nada mas.
Sure, no problem……. Dum dee um dee dummmmm… Hmmm, no harm in an aside ….. Maja tweeted – she wants a word with the mistress, pronto. She wants her spot on the big pillow on the bed seeing as the big guy isn’t hogging it anymore……. Dum dee um dee dummmmm…….. Tweet to the writers- she wants them to lose the cute baby actress. Dog’s don’t require union rates.
Office of the El Orphanage: Viv and Rafa are leaving the office talking to Aaron. They explain that they have to wait for all efforts to find any other family of Roman’s to be exhausted. Roman overhears and asks them if they are really going to adopt him. They explain to Roman that it is not automatic, that a judge will have to decide if they can adopt him. They also tell him that the officials have to be sure to check that there are no other families that would be better ones to adopt him and that he doesn’t have any bio family that would claim him. Roman doesn’t understand and is impatient with what is sure to be an excruciatingly long process in his mind [viewerville is in full agreement with Roman]. He offers to talk to the judge himself. Aaron tells Roman to have patience and Viv reassures Roman to look forward to the future and not worry.
Casita de Dan and Miriam (including Caridad and Agatha and any Other Number of Drop-Ins): Ana and Miriam and Agatha are baking cookies and sharing warmies and smiles with ever- present Caridad somewhere on the sidelines. Dan has arrived and Ana asks Dan to take a photo of the four of them. Agatha conveniently needs a diaper change and Caridad and Ana excuse themselves to handle poopie duty. Alone together, Dan is explaining, again, about being late. This time the reason is because Agustina was recently transferred from el pokito to El Pokote. Lucky for him this is sufficiently bad news and Miriam focuses on the news rather than Dan’s lame excuse again. Dan asks when Mariano is coming to take his kid home so that he and Miriam can go to the doctor appointment. Miriam tells him that the appointment was cancelled because the doctor went on vacation. QTH? Dan insists that Miriam needs a second opinion – that she cannot return to Chile without it. She disagrees etc. Dante arrives to interrupt the back-and-forth. He gives Dan the bad news that the audiotape cannot be cleaned up by the local IT team and that they need to send the tape to the big city for work.
Pastures of La MQ: Pablo and Rodolfo moon about not being among the happy couples Eleuterio and Dorotea and Piedad and Hipolito.
Casita del Dan and Miriam: Dan vents frustration to Miriam and Dante that Isa and Dio still have no evidence against them that would put them in jail once and for all. Dadnabit @#$$! Dan hates leaving La MQ (translation: Camila) with all this unsettled biz. He assures Miriam (who of course inquires if this will keep them from returning to Chile) that they will still be returning to Chile. Nonetheless, he is PO’d that his sacrifice has been for nothing. What sacrifice, asks Miriam? Dante quickly adds, why the sacrifice of nearly dying and drowning on his way to Mexico [Viewerville suspects Dan refers to the giving up Camila sacrifice which will remain a secret from Miriam for now]. Miriam tries to calm him by telling him that Abe and Gaston will be working from Chile to do what they can to catch the bad guys in Mexico. Dan huffs off and she worries to Dante about Dan’s attitude – that it seems as though he is being forced to go back to Chile (along with being forced to resume his husbandly duties) and she doesn’t like it one single bit.
The Big House: Agustina is checked in with prints and pics and is left purpleless. She has a new cellmate, Carmela. Carmela welcomes Agustina saying that if she acts right and does what Carmela tells her to do, all will be well. If she doesn’t, well, life will be hell.
Courtyard of La MQ: The happy rancheros, Pablo and New Girl give a hurrah to the new bulls that have arrived. Camila and Luzma walk up and Camila gives them the bad news that Agustina has been moved to The Big House. Camila’s phone rings with seriously disillusioned Nat on the other side. Nat is calling to offer her help to gather evidence against Deceptive Daddy Dio. Scene switches to Nat on the lawn of the house that Daddy bought as she hangs up with Camila. Behind her she hears a voice! She freezes – no puede ser! She turns to see Dio standing at the top of the stairs asking what she is doing there. Thinking on her well-balanced wedgies (finally) she tells Daddy Dio she was just coming to meet with Curtain Lady. She smartly turns the table to ask them what they are doing there, hmmm? Ummm, well, the pair come up with some lame story about fixing up a surprise for Nat. Daddy Dio wanted to take the opportunity of their upcoming honeymoon to load their house up with specially picked furniture. Guau! Thanks Daddy, she smartly says, going along with the story. She tells him she loves surprises with a wink and a nod to viewerville. Yes, thanks, Don Dio says Yago. Nah, it is Dio’s pleasure to please the light of his eyes, Nat. Oh, and no need to call me Don Dio, he tells Yago, I am your father-in-law, after all.
Courtyard of La MQ: Everyone is happy to learn that Nat is on the side of the good guys and will help them get Dio’s briefcase. Camila also informs them that they must be careful while they plot against the bad guys. She also informs them that Dio will be visiting the ranch after dinner to talk to her. Los rancheros vow to punch his lights out if he tries anything. Piedad tells Camila that she is praying to the Virgincita for a milagro. If that fails, maybe She will divinely deliver a bed for Dio and Isa in a concrete slab courtesy of the frustrated tourist site developers.
The Big House: Agustina continues to get acquainted with Carmela. Agustina confides that the experience of jail is horrible for her while Carmela asks if she expected it to be a castle. Agustina claims she is innocent. That is what everyone says, Carmela tells her. No really, Agustina insists that she was a dope who was duped by her husband and when she became a detriment to him, he turned her in for fraud. But of course, that’s men for you, Carmela exclaims in solidarity with Agustina. Carmela tells her of her own story of betrayal by a man. She says that one day she discovered her man was abusing their daughter and when she threatened to turn him in, he pulled a pistol on her. Well, she decided it was him or it was us, and she decided to save us. She shot him dead. No regrets except for missing her daughter.
Courtyard of La MQ: Hippo asks a favor of Los Rancheros. He wants them to take care of Piedad and Luzma if anything happens to him in the plot to steal Dio’s briefcase. Discussion ensues about this plan.
Kitchen of La MQ: Luzma calls Dan to tell him that Nat has agreed to help in the plot against Dio. She adds that after Camila and Mariano cenar, they are going to el hostal to talk to Nat about the plan. WTQ? Dan goes into jealous thought bubbles about Mariano and Camila spending time together. He mentions his blood boils thinking about the two of them, even though he knows it is selfish.
Camila’s Cabana: Trip down memory lane about Dan swearing they will never need to part, Agustina being led away in handcuffs and other tear-jerking scenes.
Botanica del Pueblo: Isa buys some new magic herbs and she and the shopkeeper exchange recipes for a more potent brew that Isa can give Cayetano. They decide it is better to add the magic herb drops to a hot toddy or something to strengthen its potency. Isa leaves and receives a phone call from another random lawyer. Isa informs him that she and her new husband want to update their will. Random lawyer tells her that this is as easy as emailing a boilerplate form to her so
Courtyard of La MQ: Pablo and Mariano walk and talk about Pablo’s troubled marriage and when she loves him and when she loves him not. Pablo wonders about their future. Cayetano shows up and gives them the good news that he has been to his real lawyer. He informs them that his will now provides one fourth of the ranch to each son and his wife. Pablo is happy to be included. Mariano wonders if Pops did this because of what he told him about Isa’s sketchy plans. No, says Pops, he just wants to do what is right and adds that Mariano need not worry that Isa is a gold-digger. Isa, he tells the fellas, is in full agreement with this plan to share the ranch equally. The words leave his mouth as Isa leaves town with magic herbs and a plot to do Cayetano in and take over the ranch in its entirety. Isa has not learned to share.
Camila’s Cabana: Camila talks to Viv on the party line. Viv consoles her friend. Camila asks how Viv is, btw. Viv reluctantly fills her in on her good news that she and Rafa are working on adopting Roman. Smiles and congrats. Something is going right for someone.
El Hostal: Dante arrives and needs to talk to Teresa. He tells her that he thinks they should try to have a relationship. Teresa wonders about his love for Miriam. Dante, who finally gets it, says that neither Miriam or Mariano love either of them so it is time to consider giving their new relationship a chance. Teresa looks as though she is really considering this. Viewerville has time to have a good look at Dante and approves wholeheartedly that this is a verrrryyyy gooood choice.
Dinner Table at Casita de Dan and Miriam: Ana overhears Dan mention Miriam needing a doctor appointment and worries about Miriam. Ana tells them that she remembers that her mom died as did the mother of one of her friends. She has decided that no mom should die. Miriam agrees, but tells Ana that sometimes, no matter what we wish, mothers or fathers or children die. She reassures Ana that she does not plan to die.
El Hostal: Nat returns home and arranges to meet with Camila later to help plot against Dio. She tells her mamita that she has agreed to help the good guys. Amanda acknowledges that this must be hard for her to do. No worries says Nat, finally looking like she gets that Daddy Dio is not a swell after all. She tells Amanda she loves her and rolls off to get to bed.
Jail for SubHuman Types: Trash gathers trash to be deposited in the trash truck.
Dinner Table at El Rancho de BV: Isa and Cayetano are having a nice family dinner with Yucky Yago. They discuss the
El Hostal: All gather for the powwow of good guys, everyone but Dan, that is. Dan shows up to help plot against Dio. Mariano tells Dan he is not needed and to not interfere in Camila’s affairs any longer. Dan looks crestfallen and looks at Camila. She says nothing, suggesting she is complicit with Mariano’s statement.
Jail for SubHuman Types: Trash collects trash and throws it in the bin. Trash climbs in after the trash and hides. Trash waits for the scheduled trash truck pickup. Trash is dumped into the trash truck and no one working at the jail is the wiser. Trash thought bubbles to himself to an as yet unnamed mugrosa that is deserving of his revenge. Trash takes a trip out of the jail to freedom. Camera freezes the frame on the face of LeoSordido.

Porque El Amor Manda - Episode #13 - March 27, 2013: Pati and Chucho's lunch date makes Rogelio, Alma and Xochi jealous; Secretaries and Chucho: "All for one and one for all!"

Amores Verdaderos #95 Tue 3/26/13 Inappropriate Liberties are Taken
Recap finished! Here are some preview screenshots.
|Ewww! No, just no. Don't let Roy the Boy get too cozy with you, Nikki!|
|BEHAVE, YOU TWO! He's a married man!|
Refried: Kendra-Ho tells the Furry Fornicator that she's expecting his bebe. He is not overjoyed. Victoria wanders into his office. Fortunately for the slutty couple they weren't doing anything incriminating. They make up some story about Kendra being there for business.
|Kendra breaking the news to the Furry Fornicator that she has a bun in the oven.|
Victoria spins some tale to Big Angel about writing a poem to hubby, because they're reconciling. Big Angel seems suspicious, due to the ambiguous, bittersweet content in the poem.
The New: Victoria's friends Doris and Jocelyn visit Vicki at work. They're chatting animatedly. Doris is thrilled that they may end up being related some day via the marriage of their kids (Nikki and Roy the Boy).
PEAM, Tuesday 3/26/13 (#12): Idiots on Parade
(Doesn't that sound like a great name for a horror film about murderous reindeer-zombies? The prequel could be "Reindeer Games" and the third one would be "Reindeer III: Season of the Witch," followed by "Reindeer IV: Rudolph's Revenge" and "Dasher Strikes Again" and then Rob Zombie could do a revival... or maybe I am delirious from chocolate withdrawal.)
(Seriously, though, thank you Blue Lass for the reindeer moniker to describe Avon's peanut gallery.)
Alma knows perfectly well that Rogelio would never have picked out that ring on his own - he can't even remember her birthday, much less her sign or birthstone! But Chucho insists that Rogue really wanted her ring to have a "special meaning," and sure, okay, Chucho helped him with that, but that was all.
Alma doesn't seem convinced. She asks, did he call all of her "friends," too? Because Alma knows that that wasn't Rog's doing, either. If it had been Rog, then only his friends would have been there. (Chucho gives Susana the credit for the invitations.) Anyway, Alma says, Chucho and Pati are her only friends! (Let's take a moment to contemplate how very sad that would be. Wait, no... friends with Chucho? I have no sympathy!) Chucho says it's an honor.
Alma says she fell out of touch with her old friends from school because she was too busy with work and career. She muses that perhaps it wasn't such a good tradeoff. "I was all alone until I met you," she tells Chucho. "But this is a day to celebrate," he reminds the theoretically radiant bride-to-be.
Not content to pester Pati only at home, Fernando stalks her at the gym as well. He is campaigning to be her next boyfriend. "You shouldn't be all by your lonesome. We can become another power couple, like Rog and Alma." Pati says not so fast - who says her relationship with Rog is through? A lot can happen between him and Alma. She didn't stay at his house last night. Besides, Fernando's already dating some secretary. "You'll never sip the refreshing drink of water that is me," she taunts.
Just to make sure that Fern is thoroughly humiliated, Pati adds that he doesn't have nearly enough money to be worth of the likes of her. Fern finally gives up and leaves her alone. Then she remembers Rog calling to ask about "lo nuestro" (referring to her status as perpetual booty call) and is so irritated, she blurts out "imbécil!", offending an innocent passerby.
What this girl needs is some inspiration. Coincidentally, Jesus arrives with Alma.

PEAM #11, 03/25/2013 – Do Surprise Parties Always Miss the Mark?
Saturday, March 23, 2013
Weekend Discussion: Las Primeres Actrizes; Grandes Damas de Televisa
Read more »
Porque el Amor Manda #10: What Do They Make at Avon, Anyway?
They Make Plans:
Rogue wants to throw a big ol' surprise engagement party for Alma but naturally doesn't know a thing about her, including who her friends are or her taste in rings, so he delegates it all to Doña Susana. Jesús sees her consternation and offers to help. He cops Alma's address book from her phone which she accidentally left on his desk and goes off with Doña Su and a big wad of bills. What could possibly go wrong?
They Make Trouble:
Paty tries to get info about the party by buttering up Jesús. Gosh, Almita says you're one super sexy secre, didja know? He gets all goofy-face but still doesn't tell her anything. She flounces off.
They Make Promises:
The weedy little cab driver comes back for his reward, and of course Chucho's pockets are still empty. He promises him something tomorrow. Unless tomorrow's payday, this isn't looking good.
They Make Progress:
Xochi calls Jesús and asks him out for coffee; he distractedly agrees. The poor chica is over the moon. Maricela eavesdrops snottily.
They Make Memories:
Alma sees Jesús blissing out over his CD of Valentina pix and sits down to watch with him. She reassures him that it's not his fault he missed her early years, and anyway he'll be there for her from now on. Not every family is happy, she says wistfully. She confides that she would like children herself but is afraid of repeating the mistakes her own parents made.
They Make Excuses:
Vero asks to speak with Doctora Deliciosa after Valentina's session and tells her she is concerned about her child spending time in that Big Bra environment. The Doctora says she sounds jealous. Vero protests, protests, protests too much.
They Make Command Decisions:
Jesús overrides Doña Su's philosophy of "the bigger the rock, the bigger the love" and insists on a simple ring with turquoise, Alma's birthstone. It's wicked ugly, but he's the galán, so we know it will turn out all right -- after a maximum of six months of malentendidos.
They Make Wishes:
Vero calls Jesús and demands to meet his chesty girlfriend. What's her name, anyway? "Alma..." he says dreamily. Rut-Roh.
In Other News:
- The three sillies are preparing a memorable practical joke for "la nueva secretaria." Xochi is not on board, and even Susana hesitates.
- Fer suggests to Xochi that they forget all about the incident in the photocopy room. Ya think?
- Vero almost catches Elías sneaking junk food, which he hides in a houseplant. It should be noted that he looks at it with more passion than he looks at her.
- Rogue arrives home to find a rollicking party in progress on his patio, complete with a roasting pig and a tacky little bald guy who says, "Jesús invited me!" THERE WILL BE FALLOUT.
Amores Verdaderos #93 Fri 3/22/13 Big Boys Do Cry; An Unexpected Engagement
Good Evening Ladies and Gentleman. We have a really great epi this evening. We have secrets and lies all that is missing is the video tape, and we have a surprising development. So sit back with your Baileys , relax and join me on the Patio as I dish the latest on our myriad cast of characters.

Next we have Guzmancito and Pau and she wants back in his life, but she is still dead to him. He can't forgive her for what she has done, Angel and Cris come in, but go right back out. Pau tries to get Guzmancito to understand, but he isn't having it and she goes, while our wonderful Guzmancito cries his tears and we on the Patio, especially Victoria from Texas, wants to wipe those tears off his face, *sigh*.

Amores Verdaderos #92 Thu 3/21/13 easier said than done... sweeping dirty little secrets under the rug...
Paula arrives at B house. Vicky goes to fetch Niki. Angel questions Paula’s new visit. She just came to sell Avon… jk… she came to teach piano.
In Niki’s room, FoyBoyRoy is miffed that the movie they watched is below par. And of course he has to throw another demeaning comment about Gorilita. Niki nips the subject in the bud saying Guzmi is uneducated gopher.
Vicky comes to get Niki. She does not want to take piano class today(isn’t it always the ‘just this once, pleeeeaaasseee!’ line?), wants to go get a welcome present for Tatito (Anyballs) instead. Vicky will be the piano student today instead.
Downstairs Angel tries to convince Paula to leave but to no avail. Niki, FoyRoy and Vicky come down. Niki and FoyRoy leave to go shopping. Vicky tells Paula she will be the student today, to Angel’s shock.
At KenDrat’s, Cris bit the bait hook, line and sinker, saying Dances is more violent than she thought. KenDrat keeps the play going and throws one last arrow telling Cris that Dances says she is a ho because the man she IS going out with is … wait for it… married??! … Cris is in shock. KenDrat says she fought her feelings. Cris suggests KenDrat talk to Paula, who was lover to a married man… KenDrat bubble thinks ‘stop saying stupid things!’ but thanks Cris for her advise. She is still afraid what Dances would have done if she were alone.

PEAM #-9- Frisky Fern Gets Photocopied and Learns a Lesson in Self Defense Almost at the Expense of the French
Amor Bravío #150 (Uni 145) Wed 3/20/13 " Dan Tells a Tall Tale etc."
Please hold this space for us while I finish the last page of the recap, okay?
What else would I do since one of us monopolizes the keyboard alllll the time, if you know what I mean? And while I have a minute may I remind you to take it easy on the WTQ? You get a little overexcited when you hit those keys. I know it is hard to believe some of the antics of these characters because they give me a headache too, but have a heart. Whoever still wonders if computers can approach the brains of humans didn't watch the antics of a certain hunky lunk last night is all I can say.... Go finish up and post so that viewerville can be updated on hunky lunk's whopper tale he told Wife 2, Miriam.
OK, Dell and I offer you the rundown on last night's capitulo....
Miriam and Dan’s Casita: While searching for a blankie for baby Aggie, Miriam finds a pendant with the carved design of a letter C. Closer study of the pendant reveals a little “sweet nothing” inscription on it. Squinting her eyes and concentrating carefully, she wonders aloud….. whose name starts with a letter “!C!”….. hmmmmmm… What do you think “! C!”Caridad? Hmmmm…. I know….. “!C!”Camila! That’s it! Viewerville claps that she figured this out so handily. QTH? She sets her jaw firmly as she says Dan had better start explaining this, pronto. [“Beeech”, adds Mr Mena.]

PEAM - #8 - Mar. 20, 2013 -Woody and Jessie take a surprise trip; Miss OCD visits the barrio
Note from Recapper Jody: I have to remind myself not to take anything in this
novela seriously or personally, it’s a comedy. well, it’s supposed to be a comedy
anyway. At various times, the episode has become so pathetic the only thing I can do is
laugh and entertain myself with thoughts like “AVON spelled backwards is NOVA (NOVA)”.
Also, I’ve been renaming characters. For now, my new nicknames include:
Chucho -- Chuckles, Xochi -- Chachi, Fernando -- Woody. And now onto the recap...
Rog packs the money in the little case as he talks with his brother Woody.
Chuckles talks on phone with Vero. She tells him she's on her way to see his place. He
tries to talk her out of going tonight. She is determined and will see him at 6 p.m. sharp.

Amores Verdaderos #90 Tue 3/19/13 Jealousy, bitterness, and . . . more jealousy
Seriously, we had a lot of jealousy tonight.
Summary (based on memory—you know how I roll!).
EVENTS MAY NOT BE LISTED IN ORDER. Feel free to add or correct recap in comments. (I know I can count on you guys!)
Refried: Big Angel doesn't get why Victoria didn't respond differently to his "confession" (of how there's a woman who has tempted him to stray from the straight and narrow), not realizing that Vicki HAS NO CLUE because he never said which woman was tempting him. "She doesn't know how much I love her" he says to himself (or some such).
The New: Big Angel packs his bags. He's outta there! But no sooner is he out the door than he's in again. He can't leave Vicki. Who will look after her?
|He can't make a clean break!|

PEAM, Tuesday 3/19/13 (#7): The Bleeping Perils of Fernando's Bleeping Package Bleep Bleep Bleep
(The secretarias are all so busy making fun of Chucho - do any of them notice the way Fernando dresses? He always looks like he's on his way to a "Miami Vice" fan club convention. That look was mockable enough even when it was actually in fashion. I think it's ten times more hilarious now.)
Alma rescues Chucho by inviting him into her office. Outside, Xochi offers to give the other secretarias the money she won on the bet (about whether he would get fired today or not) if they'll stop laughing. They pause for a moment as if to consider it, but they can't control themselves.
In Alma's office, Chucho half-jokingly suggests that the secretarias conspired with Cardenas and Fernando to get him this ridiculous uniform as revenge for his insulting remarks. Alma tells him it's really not that bad, but they both know she's only being nice. Chucho tries to be a good sport about it.
Then Alma says, "I know it's none of my business, but are you, um, well, are you gay?"

Amores Verdaderos #89 Mon 3/18/13 A Confession (Kind of)
* Lo refrito: Victoria, the jealous Balvanera princess gets owned by Arriaga. “Yes, madam, you’re right, Opalina isn’t just my spiritual guide. Good night.” Vicky is impactada, and she deserved it.
* Lo nuevo: while Nikki is anxiously waiting for her BoyToyBoyfriend, the aforementioned young gentleman is in the middle of a threesome with two American girls (who surely won the award for the most horrible accent in a telenovela). He says he’s with his coach, and they are making arrengements to his next United States tournament. By the way, he hopes this time his beloved flaquita (skinny girl) will accompany him… as his wife. Neta gets a small heart attack, but manages to feign enthusiasm: oh, that’s great, she wants to marry him so much, and now she’s super happy. Really. Roy promises that as soon as he finishes there *yuck*, he’ll pick her up.

Amores Verdaderos #88 Fri 3/15/13 Strung Out and Hung Up On You; The Truthiness of the Pau; Would I Lie to You?
Good Evening Ladies and Gentleman, We have a new communique in the form of a Bark-O-Gram, that I had to get a dog whisperer to translate for me and here it is:
To The Patio Peeps: Thanks for caring about what happens to me/stop/ I have a new name/stop/Not happy with Monet/stop/Would love for people to call me Balzac as you Patio Peeps do/stop/ A gang of German Shephards and Pit Bulls stole my beret/stop/I am happy I found the Chefy Guy/stop/ He fed me premium French Bread and Gourmet dog food/stop/ He and the Angel hugged me and played with me/stop/When I see the Odious Sulphurous One I'm a gonna bite her/stop/Didn't know my Master had come to visit the Chefy Guy/stop/Maybe he'll come back/stop/Meantime lovin' it here and they are taking very good care of me/stop/ I have to toodle off now so many wags and kisses, Balzac XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO
Now on to the recap. We start this epi with Nikki cuttin the cheese and then hiding it and Ms Vikki and Tomi come in and she assures her Mami that she is super fresh and mega cool. Ms Vikki wants to know about the therapy but Nikki so don't wanna talk about it, stalks off and Tomi tells Ms Vikki she will go after her. The Angel has come in, feeling bad about keeping secrets from Ms Vikki, but she really doesn't want to hear it. She isn't hurt by what he did, now if Tomi would keep things from her, she'd be upset, but hey, the Angel is only her bodyguard, not her friend, got that? Yeah, he gets it, but doesn't wanna. Pobrecito!

PEAM # 4-So Far The Qualities of the Avon Personnel- Silly, Immature, Rude and Horny
Amor Bravío #145 (Uni 140) Wed 3/13/13 "Push-Me Pull-Me Love All Around (Besides Breaking TN Ultimos Capitulos News)"
Old News del Pueblo:
Dio’s Den of Dishonor: Dio informs Agustina that they will be hosting an event at the house this evening – the asking of Novia Nat’s hand in marriage by Yucky Yago. He demands that Agustina make it an affair to remember. Agustina refuses to host if Isa is to attend because she cannot abide having Isa in her home. Dio demands she will do as he says or she can pack her bags and ….. Agustina shrinks back and agrees to do whatever she needs to do to please Don Demon Dio. Agustina thought bubbles her worries about how she will be able to keep up the façade of the host and housewife.
Living Room at La BV: Cayetano and Isa arrive home after Isa has been freed from the pokey. Isa complains she is tired and anxious to take a long hot shower after her ordeal in prison. Viewerville is anxious that she don any other age inappropriate apparel than what we have been looking at for the last few days. Bratgirl wanders in and Cayetonto introduces the two and they exchange pleasantries. For now. Yago wanders in and pleads a big favor from Pops and the new missus. He asks them to come with him to his future father-in-law’s place for phony pedida dinner tonight. This is the night he will be asking Nat’s parents for payola er, her hand in marriage. Cayetano hesitates, but Isa obliges, fake-graciously, leading viewerville to sniff a whiff of a rat in the vicinity of La BV.
