Lo Que La Vida Me Robo #9- 11/29/13: Tantita Pena (She Suffers)


Ahoy, Amigis! The title of this recap is taken from a song by Alejandro Fernandez. Please enjoy the link Tantita Pena 


Gracie sends Dimwit to Ale's to make sure he shows up at Pedro's shinding. Make something up if he isn't wanting to go Gracie opines. Speaking of Gracie we are opening a new table on the Patio called, "The Tasteful Fashion Police". Cap'n Sylvia and Doris are the first ones there ; ) We will be critiquing Gracie's unfortunate taste in clothes, but especially the shoes. Speaking of shoes here is another link for your listening pleasure In These Shoes




Pedro's Shinding:
As Nadia, Pedro's wife, plays the "Moonlight Sonata", Gracie and Lottie are in the corner talking about her piano playing. Lottie thinks she's good Gracie, meh, not so much. Speaking of Gracie, did she just roll out of bed, she looks like she's got the "Bed Head". Product suggestions anyone? Seems Pedro likes showing Nadia off, but he's nowhere in sight, he's talking politics in his office with who knows who according to Gracie. Lottie remarks how Ale just walked in and he is devouring Monse with his eyes. Oh, la la, say oooo la, la Y'all! There are some smoldering looks between Monse and Ale. Monse is moving toward Ale and Lottie thinks this is a bad idea. She should let Ale come to her. Gracie is all for Monse taking the lead. Monse greets Ale and the look between them a little flirtatious a bit shy, and says she'd like to talk to him, but not there. She takes his hand and he clutches her hand and off they go. Gracie is over the moon thinking Lottie gave Monse some good advice.

Mentir Para Vivir #39 Fri 11/29/13 The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Trut AND Its Consequences


Capítulo 39

Lo Del Pasado:

Cesar has returned from the seminary to Lucina’s B&B, ignoring Raquel’s “I told you so” remarks, to right things with Mama. Now that his dad’s living there as well, Ruben has managed to confess to his son about his past--the why and how of his years ago succumbing to Mathilde’s charms and her expected inheritance, and thus leaving Fidelia to fend for herself. (Not exactly what Viewerville would deem true love on either account. What a frickin’ waste, Fi! You could have done so much better!)

Oriana has set up Jose Luis to meet with Dona Paloma the next morning, per Paloma’s request. She’s also agreed, per Ric’s request, to counsel Fabiola regarding the need for birth control since self-control effectively dissolved into stardust and Sebastardo’s male lust. Ric has also emphasized to Oriana that if she goes back with her husband, there won’t be any “negotiated” terms on JL’s part; that a guy like Jose Luis simply takes what he wants.

Lo Del Nuevo:

Ric and Padre Mariano have now decided that it’s time to tell Paloma the truth so that Jose Luis won’t catch the old woman off her guard during their heart-to-heart, possibly killing her from the shock of the surprise. He calls Oriana over to the rectory for a meet with Lucina and them later that day.


Lina cajoles her “abuela” to invite her daddy over to live with them in the big mansion, one big happy family! (This is when Viewerville thinks "cute" needs to take a hike and manners needs a major leg up to the table.) 2nes tries talking Lina out of the idea, but the little girl is a litigation marvel, a natural, and she wins the argument with her mommy. 2nes exits the bedroom and calls Jose Luis. He’s at the Twenty-Four/ Seven Lounge with Berto and takes her call on his cell. “—We have to move the appointment with Paloma to later tomorrow. She’s too tired. Oh, and BTW, I lied when I said she knew I wasn’t Ines.” No problema, replies JL amorously. “--I wouldn’t ever betray you, mi vida. Besos.” Berto claps at the “act”, obnoxious as ever. The two men continue their discussion about Lila wanting to legally contest the will now that the do-do has hit the wind-manufacturing apparatus. JL says let her. What does he care, anyway?

Berto points out that the scandal may be so great for the company that he chooses to relinquish his stock in the company, selling off to the old lady who’d then be ripe for the picking since she’d need a strong man running things there. JL ignores that to ask if he has found the pistol Rick took from him. The house is so large, complains Berto, that he’d have to go through it room by room and there are dozens of rooms! That’s a pile of crap, says JL to the butt-faced one. “--Get it done and I don’t care how you do it. Got that?” Just then Joaquin arrives, gives Bertie the brush off, and then takes his place of pompi-pomp-assed priority on the cushioned purple couch. JL tells him Berto is a useless idiot that he now finds more of a pain than an asset. So, in the old days, offers Joaquin, we used to make those kinds of guys disappear. Problem solved.

Joaquin orders a drink and informs JL that in a day or so he’ll have the signatory problem with the bank account in Colombia solved for his wife. JL is relieved, but Joaquin tells him not so fast. He owes him another one now for this additional favorcito. “—I can’t understand why you want to retire from the business. You look like one of the upper crust and fit in perfectly. You can talk rings around them and stand to earn a huge amount of money at this.” “—My wife would never accept it.” Joqi guffaws and suggests JL shower her with gifts. Works for him. “--Not all women are alike.”

Meanwhile, Berto figures he’ll hit on Marilu for skinny on Ric. He hits her with a sob story and asks her out for happy hour and pumps her hard. Marilu unwittingly gives him the hours Ric keeps, tells him that Ric’s living in the bungalow attached to the side of the main manse and that his manservant leaves every evening and returns first thing in the morning. No, he doesn’t throw parties and his old maid auntie doesn’t either. They’re both pretty much sticks in the mud who do very little entertaining.

That evening Oriana arrives at the rectory and sees Lucina there with Padre Mariano and Ricardo. Ric explains that the time’s come to tell Paloma that she’s not really Ines Valdivia. Oriana realizes that she cannot continue lying to Paloma any longer. “—Yes, I’ve put it off too long already.” Ric is certain that Paloma won’t turn her into the police. Mariano and he advise her to move in with Lucina for a while. As for the three million pesos Lucina and Raqi owe Paloma, he’ll be happy to hand that amount over to Lucina so she can repay it to Paloma in full. She shouldn’t have to feel obligated to go back with Jose Luis, either, they opine, just because she is still married to him.

Oriana has second thoughts about causing the old woman another heart attack. She cares a great deal for Paloma and that’s the last thing she’d want to have happen, she tells them anxiously. Ric reminds Oriana that at some most inopportune moment, Jose Luis could let the cat out of the bag accidentally on purrrr-pose. Or, Lucina adds, if he wants to have sex he’d be able to hold that over her head, demanding his rights like men do. “--JL may sweet talk you by saying he’d always respect you, but men never do,” let alone the malevolent, self-seeking Mafioso type Jose Luis is now. Lucinda adds that if her hubby does get those charges dropped and has a document to prove it, then Oriana can get a divorce finally and be free of him. Mariano seconds that, saying the Church will also allow a separation if the husband becomes involved in criminal activities.

Oriana asks how she’s supposed to fix the assumed identity problem. Lucina suggests telling their whole story to Manolo, her cop buddy from San Carlos. He’s as much a friend as a cop to Lucina and will be able to suggest something that makes sense she believes. Oriana tells them that Lina wants her daddy to move into Paloma’s house, which is another headache to consider. Ric jealously says they’ve already discussed that and it’s not doable. Lucina is totally against that idea also, but for more sensible reasons. “—You can’t do everything your child wants you to. Lina is only a little girl and you need to live your own life, unless you want to end up a bitter old woman, or worse yet, a nun!” (Hive Fiver to Lucina!) Mariano suggests taking Lina to a child psychiatrist for therapy to help her understand their situation better.

After much persuasion from Lucinda, Oriana agrees that she’ll join the others to make a clean breast of it all, but only if Paloma’s cardiologist is there in case the old lady’s heart palpitations get the best of her, She then calls Jose Luis, who is now boored stiff while “partying” with Joaquin and a stable of dancing doxies, to change the appointment with Paloma till the next afternoon. She lies and says it’s because the cardiologist is coming for a routine follow up in the morning. JL sees no problem and agrees.

The next morning everyone sits in Paloma’s office area of Paloma’s bedroom waiting for her arrival so they can begin the whole miserably embarrassing, wretched story. Lucina gives Paloma the “once upon a time” version. Paloma soon realizes she’s hearing 2nes’s past and that it means 2nes is not True-nes Valdivia after all. Paloma, now tired and saddened by the realization, wants to know why they tricked her. Ric explains gently that Oriana had no choice if she was going to protect her daughter; but he emphasizes quickly that she also was worried about Paloma’s health because she truly loves her and wanted no harm to come to her. “--Then where is my granddaughter? Where is Ines?” Mariano slickly remarks that she’s joined her mother in heaven. Lucina relates how Ines came to her hotel and the next day died from an overdose of drugs while swimming in the ocean, and without any I.D. on her. Lucina clarifies that because she was unidentified, she was eventually cremated with all the other unidentified bodies the police find. She hands Paloma the only thing of value that was left in her hotel room. Paloma recognizes it as the gold locket she’d given her daughter before she was run off by her father. Lucina wipes away her tears. “—If you want to blame anybody, blame me. I was the one who planned and caused this whole mess. I thought falsifying the documents and the passport would be the best way to insure Oriana could keep hold of her daughter.”

Just about that time, Mathilde comes sniffing around and enters the room, wanting to know what the gang is talking about that’s got her aunt so disturbed. Ric walks her back into the hallway. He tells her this doesn’t concern her and to let them finish up. Wouldn’t you know it, though! A minute later, Mad Hilde opens the door, in demand stance again. Ric, very perturbed, leaves with her and tells her it’s undignified for a “lady” like herself to be eavesdropping through a closed door the way she’s been. “--Be kind enough not to do this!” He has to warn her twice, second time not as nice.

Oriana now leaves to pack her and Lina’s things. She’s moving out. Ric begs her to stay a bit longer and to give her own version, to then ask for forgiveness and perhaps offer to leave after that—but not like this! Not like a thief in the night! Oriana, though, is certain the old lady will call the police down on her, though Ric says he doesn’t believe that will happen. Well, if nothing else she is certain she will never want to speak to her again in this lifetime or the next. As far as she is concerned, she is a thief. She’s stolen the old woman’s affections and she’s stolen her granddaughter’s identity!

Mad Hilde walks into the anteroom where Oriana’s left her bags. Whose are those, she asks? Ric and Lucinda explain they’re Ines’s. “--She’s going on vacation.” “—Oh, don’t tell me she’s really a whore?” Ric tells her to can the trash talk.

Outside, a few minutes later, Lina returns from school and sees the bags and the dog on the lawn. They’re leaving to stay at Lucina’s, says Oriana. They pack up and Oriana stops to cancel JL’s afternoon appointment. He doesn’t understand and doesn’t believe the excuse. Oriana clicks off without any further explanation. Mad Hilde show up on the lawn a minute later and demands the older maid tell her what’s going on. The old gal stutters out that she believes 2nes is going to live with her husband now. Maddy is pleased with herself and the news and jingles her collar bells with deliciously malicious delight. (Me-owwwwww!)

The doctor has needed to give Paloma some knock-out drops. Mariano wants to assure he’ll stay mum on the things he heard there this morning. The doctor says he’s just like a priest at confession when it comes to a patient’s personal life.

Once Oriana’s settled in at the B&B, she and Lucinda discuss whether she’ll be going back with her hubby or not. Oriana’s still not sure. She needs a job again, but she knows Lucinda can’t really offer her one. (As it is, she’s already getting free room and board.) The topic changes and Lucinda feels that having JL there will be too uncomfortable for Oriana (not to mention Raqi who is sharing his bed), so she’s going to ask him to find another hotel.

Down in the dining area, Ruben, Cesar and Raquel are chatting when Fakecisco shows up and greets them. He learns Cesar’s Ruben’s son and that he’s left the seminary to deal with his mother. Raqi mentions then that Paloma’s “granddaughter and great-granddaughter” are now living at the B&B. Lucina arrives and takes Fakecisco into her office to discuss her need for him to leave to find another hotel. He demands to know what room they’re in. “—I’m her husband and it’s migh right!” “—No, no! You’re “rights” come only as far as she wants them to. So many people know the truth about her past now that if we haven’t all gone to the police yet about you, it’s been to protect her and Lina. So, we need to ask you to find lodging somewhere else.” “Fine. Prepare my bill then!”

Raqi follows him to his room, staking out her territory with JL, and learns he’s leaving thanks to Lucina. No problem, though. He’s thinking to rent out a house and bring his family to live with him there. Raqi wonders what about her. Her? JL and she swap tongues and then he tells her that she’s been nothing more than a pleasant diversion. She slaps him and fights a second kiss, but the two of them enjoy the rough foreplay it seems. (Ehh! They’ll be seeing each other again if Raquel has anything more to say about it--and she’ll make sure she does, natch.)

Ric, meanwhile, mopes around his house in the dark. Oriana refuses to answer his calls. Raqi calls to rile him with the lie that the two turtledoves are back together again. He hangs up and races over to the B&B to find out for himself.

At the same time, Jose Luis bribes Felipe with a wad of bills to find out what room his wife’s in. He enters and gives her the news that Lucina has thrown him out but that he’s going to rent a house for them to live in instead. He threatens her, warning that if she doesn’t come live with him then he’ll see that the charges against her in Colombia are not dropped after all!

Ric gets to the B&B just as Jose Luis is schlepping his bags onto the courtyard. They stare maliciously at each other. Thunder booms and lightning crackles above. The rain starts to fall. Ric looks squarely at his rival and speaks first. “--So, Oriana came here because you were staying here?” JL laughs at him. “—Well, of course!” Ric tells him he doesn’t believe it. “—Ask her yourself.” “—You’re pressuring her, forcing her!” “—Get this straight: Oriana is my wife!” Ric immediately corrects him. “—No, she was your wife while she thought you were a decent man; but now Oriana is mine!” The two start circling and suddenly we’ve got major fisticuffs in the middle of the falling rain in the middle of the courtyard. Eventually it looks like JL has gotten the better of Ric and he knocks him down with a solid right hook to the jaw.

Ric gets it together again though, and jumps back on his feet. With the entire staff and guests looking on by now, Ric manages his own right hook to Jose Luis’s jaw, then does a quick kung-fu double legged jump-kick to the belly number on JL. This causes JL to fall flat on his back into the swimming pool. He sinks to the bottom. Oriana is drop-kick-me impactada when she sees her hubby rise back up to the top with a large pistol in his hand—and he is aiming it straight at Ric, his finger on the trigger…..

Corazon Indomable :146 - Scandals, Vengeance and Jealousy: It’s a busy day in C.I


 Final Recap is up! 

SHORT VERSION
Alonso is mad and plans revenge on both Tav and MC. He want to paint MC nude..Bwahahahaha. Tav is jealous, Doris is jealous and MC can't catch a break. Out of a job and cannot find a new home. 

LONG VERSION

Alonso, Son of the Year
Alonso and MC argue about integrity and Alonso’s lack thereof. She is disgusted with his scheme of duping other artists and passing off the work as his. Old SuperMari comes out of hiding to give Alonso the verbal smackdown. Playboy Alonso barely has his feathers ruffled. He tells her to keep her mouth shut, as they both have a lot to lose if she opens her mouth. MC pays him no mind until he tells her that his mother would not like hearing about her affairs and dark past. This sets her off and she gives him so hard of a slap that he is left speechless.

Doris, the Problem Solver
Doris is trying to fix the mess that Octavio got himself in. This is very calm for Doris; I am surprised she is not screaming her head off that she is the Governor’s daughter or something of the likes. She doesn’t believe that anyone will accuse him if he is with her. She wants Tav to do something worthwhile (good luck with that) to get himself out of this mess. I believe she comes up with the idea to return the package in the mail (CCs would have been helpful this episode), which makes a lot more sense than Tav’s moping.

Alonso, Playboy’s Lifestyle spins out of control
Alonso is telling some chic (I forget her name but she did some major hating on MC a few episodes ago) about putting MC in her place. He then deals with the under-aged girl from his past. She wants to see him like yesterday, she wants him to tell her that he doesn’t like her and was only playing with her feelings the whole time (why go through all that when you already know the answer). Alonso tries to blow her off but she tells him to make time or else.  Sorry, Alonso I do not feel sorry for you.

Ric gets to the B&B just as Jose Luis is schlepping his bags onto the courtyard. They stare maliciously at each other. Thunder booms and lightning crackles above. The rain starts to fall. Ric looks squarely at his rival and speaks first. “--So, Oriana came here because you were staying here?” JL laughs at him. “—Well, of course!” Ric tells him he doesn’t believe it. “—Ask her yourself.” “—You’re pressuring her, forcing her!” “—Get this straight: Oriana is my wife!” Ric immediately corrects him. “—No, she was your wife while she thought you were a decent man; but now Oriana is mine!” The two start circling and suddenly we’ve got major fisticuffs in the middle of the falling rain in the middle of the courtyard. Eventually it looks like JL has gotten the better of Ric and he knocks him down with a solid right hook to the jaw.

Ric gets it together again though, and jumps back on his feet. With the entire staff and guests looking on by now, Ric manages his own right hook to Jose Luis’s jaw, then does a quick kung-fu double legged jump-kick to the belly number on JL. This causes JL to fall flat on his back into the swimming pool. He sinks to the bottom. Oriana is drop-kick-me impactada when she sees her hubby rise back up to the top with a large pistol in his hand—and he is aiming it straight at Ric, his finger on the trigger…..

Corazon Indomable # 145 (plus replay of #144), Thursday, 11-28-13. Lazy Layabout Playboy Painter Amazes the Artistic World, Then Displays a Shocking Loss of Artistic Integrity


Here’s hoping all of you had a great holiday and wonderful Thanksgiving feast.

WTH, Univision? Another “two-hour” evening with another repeat of the previous night’s second hour, leaving us with only one fresh episode? And here we thought we were making progress. (I could be bitter about sacrificing my Thanksgiving evening, but the food is put away, the dishes are washed, and I’m ready to sit for a while.)

If You Didn’t Get Enough of the Club Scene
If one had only known, one could have made better plans for the repeat of Cap. 144—skipping either last night’s or tonight’s showing. I was weary enough from cooking to stay put and watch all over again.

There were the young lovers in their assorted triangles, hanging out at the club while watched over by cool and carefree Clementina. There was Alfonso, the man with the plan, persuading his fellow artists to fill up “his” exhibit with their talent. At least they get the satisfaction of seeing their work on display, even if he gets the credit. There were Celia and Tav, concerned that Mechita and MC would get bad reps from association with slimy Alfonso. And finally, we see many of our current characters eager to make an appearance at the exciting exhibit.

One of the Highlights of the Social Season
Although Tav appeared in person to complain to Alfonso’s mother and future mother-in-law, the selfish slimeball painter is determined to continue his pursuit of MC as both model and lover. Elsa, the very young former flame, calls to lodge another complaint with Alf. He claims he dropped her because she’s too young. That excuse doesn’t cut it with her, since he picked her up at school many times. She’ll see him at the exhibit! MC, hoping for a fresh start, tells Juanita they need to leave the hotel and find a house. (Finally feeling the need for privacy?)

Doris is driving to meet Tav, sure that she’ll marry him this time, unless he’s still involved with “that woman.” MC speaks to Juanita as she heads off for the exhibit, dressed in a conservative ice-blue lace sheath. Juanita says she is very elegant, but MC thinks Doris may bring out the savage in her.

MC is speaking to Alf in the crowded gallery when Tav and Doris arrive. Doris looks deceptively sweet in a pink chiffon and lace dress, with one bare shoulder and a flying panel on the other shoulder. She trills “Buenos noches” at Alf and MC, while a sullen Tav and hostile MC refuse to acknowledge each other. Alf tosses out “bienvenidos” as they stride by.

Clementina, husband (name?), Celia, and Mechita chat in a group. Doris and Tav scan the paintings, zeroing in on the head and shoulders portrait of MariCruz. Doris’ opinion: “She looks prettier than she really is.” Anibal, the hovering creator of the abstract “Freedom,” is thrilled to hear Tav praise his painting. Tasha and Alf’s buddy toast the success of the exhibit.

Tav overhears two men gossiping about MC—she’s actually the hired companion of the painter’s mother, and possibly worse. He takes offense and huffily informs them he personally knows that she’s a lady, not a tramp. Then he attempts to grab MC, saying if she doesn’t get rid of that painting, he will! He tells Alf he doesn’t want to hear MC' name in everyone’s mouth: after all, she is the mother of his daughter. Next, he tells Doris they’re leaving, despite her complaint that all this has nothing to do with them.

The Art World Is Amazed at Alfonso’s Talent
The morning after the big event, Alf’s parents read the morning papers with the critics’ positive take on the exhibit. “Freedom” is a masterpiece. Alf is also reading and learns his exhibit “surprised the artistic world.” Anibal, the somewhat scruffy “Freedom” artist, comes to see Alf with his thanks. MC is also reading the critics’ comments, but less happily. She doesn’t like contributing to a deception and thinks the other artists must be suffering from the imposture.

Anibal is thrilled to see his work appreciated, but Alfonso doesn’t want to give up the painting yet. He wants to show it elsewhere and maybe win a prize with it. He would give Anibal some money, since he knows Anibal needs it. Anibal is counting on the world knowing he’s the artist sometime in the future. He’s troubled with shaking hands, which is bad news for a painter.

Meanwhile at Casa de Society Central, Celia and her friends are praising the exhibit and asking about Mechita’s wedding. Now, many of them want Alfonso to paint their portraits. (Ha! A perfect career for him—a soulless society painter, forced to flatter ladies of a certain age instead of producing masterpieces or seducing young models.)

An art collector/museum representative calls on Alfonso. He thinks “Freedom” is a masterpiece and will pay mucho dinero for it--$100,000. Alf smirks a little, but doesn’t want to sell yet, since he hopes to exhibit it other places. Buyer thinks he must have been truly inspired to paint like that. Since he is leaving for Germany in a short time, he wants to take the painting with him. Selfish swine Alf continues thinking: Anibal is sick and won’t paint much longer the way his hand shakes. I could give him money and besides, my signature is on that painting. It’s too good an opportunity to pass up.

Other Members of the Public Have a Lower Opinion of Alfonso and His Talent
Tav wonders why he continues to believe MC is pure. Doris mocks him for defending MC, but he feels like killing those who attack her. He thinks of Alfonso’s insinuation that he should get rid of MC’ portrait if it causes such a problem.

MC is busy at Clem’s Casa de Pretensiones, going through her new stack of invitations. She’s hot property socially, now that her son is the buzzword of the art world. Clem brags on ladies lining up for portraits. MC is happy for her boss, but says Alf doesn’t take his painting seriously. They acknowledge other painters contributed to the exhibit’s success. A news bulletin announces a burglary at the art exhibit. The portrait of MariCruz was stolen!

In Tav’s room, we see him with the stolen portrait, loudly chastising the painted MC as maldita (damned). If his one brain cell isn’t working, his emotions are. He takes a knife from his bag and slashes the painting, hacking away until only tangled pieces remain. He rips the canvas free, tearing it into smaller shreds and demolishes the inner frame.

This catharsis is interrupted by a knock on the door. Doris enters, surveys the mess, and says Tav is the thief! Now he’s made MC famous as the muse caught between the artist and a jealous lover. Why did he do it? Because of those men saying MC was Alf’s amante (lover). She warns him she could make a real scandal if she calls the police!

An official is interviewing the gallery owner, who says it may be personal vengeance. He is welcome to investigate on his own. Probably he will, since it’s a juicy story.

MC goes into savage mode and confronts Alf in his studio, saying they have to talk. She arrives as Anibal also visits the studio. Concerned for security, he wants his painting. Alf reminds him to be careful about saying that, since it’s traveling under Alf’s signature. MC hears him offer $2,000 to Anibal and questions Alf once they’re alone. He says a buyer is offering $100,000 so he can easily pay Anibal the smaller amount.

MC is incensed and rips into him as she did to the Emir Karim, so long ago. She says other painters would be interested to know how he operates. He’s the worst kind of petty thief! He warns her that she and Tav have as much to lose as he, if the entire mess is made public.

Preview—Continuing fallout from the artistic scandal.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Part 1:

The music tells us that Al drops a bomb at the dinner table in front of Mercedes, Mom and MC, the three m's, hahaha. A jealous exhusband came to his studio and threatened him if he paints his exwife. It doesn't seem to warrant that much suspense to me.

Doris drops a bomb to Octavio except the music isn't that intense because the water fountain in the background is making so much noise it's hard to hear them. She tells him that she told her daddy that they are back together and getting married. Octavio gives her a look that I can't identify. I think he's using his one brain cell to figure out what she just said.

Corazon Indomable Hour 1 -- From Muse to Matchmaker; Hour 2 - Not In The Nude, Dude!

[Completed 2 of 2]

Hour 1 of 2 --Capítulo 142
"From Muse to Matchmaker"

Maricruz returns to Clementina’s manse to report to Mama C that Alfonzo is an underachiever. This is the reason for his not wanting to have an exhibition. (Or, to paraphrase—the bigger the boast, the smaller the post…) M/C realizes this dawggy's got a bigger bark than bite and tells Mama, bottom line, she’s determined Fonzie requires a muse more than a mistress. She can manage musing no problem.

Octavio, knowing that he’s got Juanita on his side, figures he’ll be able to keep tabs on his family unit and will have time to eventually convince Maricruz that she completely misinterpreted Doris’s draping her drunk-as-a-skunky skanky self over him and planting a plastered lip-lock on him just as she walked into the room that night at the party. He’s determined to make her realize that appearances can be deceiving, especially where Doris and he are always concerned. (Good luck, Chump. Please tell us what makes the umpteenth and first time so different from the first umpteen.)

Mentir Para Vivir #35 Mon 11/25/13 Famoso empresario abuses retrasada mental and wears an ascot * while making love.

*a type of fancy scarf worn by rich metrosexual boys and galancetes of the telenovela variety



We start with a rehash of Friday’s conversation between Jose Luis and Oriana. She refuses to go back to him, so when Alina goes to say goodbye to her father, he asks her if she’d ever live with him without Oriana. Alina looks torn - this is a choice no kid should ever have to make.

Padre Reddish Plaid is visiting Paloma at the hospital. She’ll be let go the next day, but she’s not as happy as one would expect, because she wants to find out the truth about Ines.
Their talk goes something like this:

Paloma Cruise: “I want the truth!”
Padre Nicholson: “You can’t handle the truth!”

Padre worries that her heart might not be strong enough for this, but she insists that she has to know everything there is to know about Ines’ husband and she’s sure that he won’t lie to her, because he’s a priest.
Mariano isn’t very proud of his priesthood these days, but he does tell Paloma that Francisco Castro, the man who was interested to invest in Aresti Breton is none other than the mysterious husband. Cara de enferma impactada de Paloma (meaning she’s shocked, but her eyes are only moderately goggling upon hearing the big news).

Lo que la vida me robo, November 25, 2013. Capitulo 5


Graciela tells the police that she accompanied her son, DamDim, to take care of a debt he had with the dearly departed. DamDim confirms they were there for about 20 mins. Lauro observes all with his normally confused face or is it bored look? I can't tell. Anyway the police ask if they remember anything else to let them know.

Next they pay a visit to our resident stud, Alejandro. He tells them about the dearly departed’s bad dealings. Victor is glad that Ale didn't comment about Bruno stealing from him. The police could have interpreted it wrong. Ale saw no reason to mention it.

Gaspar asks Juventino where he's been. He lies and says he was looking into some prices on vitamins for the animals. Instead of scolding me, you should be trying to hook up Maria and Alejandro together. We could then be the owners of all this. Gaspar tells him that he is tired of hearing the same crap. And stop putting ideas into his daughters head. He has other ambitions.

Lauro is upset that DamDim owed Bruno money and wasn't even informed about it. Graciela was going to tell him but wanted to take care of it first. DamDim jokes that if he knew Bruno was going to end up dead, he wouldn't have bothered paying him. Lauro tells him to shut up. Now that DamDim will be returning to the marina, he will be getting some well earned discipline. Whether he wants it or not. He decides to go to bed. He asks if Graciela is coming. In just a moment. I want to talk to Montse first. Mommy dearest asks Montse who is Jose Luis?

Corazon Indomable #140 & 141, 11/25/13: Dopes, Doris and Drama

The recap is now all done! I came up with the title before watching the episodes, but after watching, I still think it fits perfectly.

-Vivi

--
Part 1:

MC swears to Juanita that if she and Tav were to meet today, unlike the first time they met and fell in love, things would be very different. Uh huh. MC desperately wants to see and kiss Tav.

Tav offers up Alfie as a better playmate for Doris, but tells her to be careful of his playboy ways. Doris assures him she can handle Alfie. She isn’t deterred by Tav’s lack of enthusiasm for renewing a friendship with her. Back in his hotel, Tav thinks to himself that he must tell Doris that he’s reconciled with MC and is looking for her. (Any bets on when he actually gets around to doing this?) Miguelito, meanwhile, is out late partying with friends, leaving his bed empty for the night.

Alfie asks his mommy about Doris and MC. He wants them both and wants to learn more about them both. Being that they are beautiful women, of course they are perfect targets for an “adventure.” He puts his fiancé Mercedes/Meche down. She does not please his artist’s eye.

The next morning, Clementina asks MC to go on a trip with her, once Alfie is married. Clementina is still hot to get MC hitched. MC says she has no luck in the love department. Clem guesses correctly that MC has suffered greatly for love.

Corazon Indomable - caps 138 & 139 Fri 11/22/13 She's Baaack!

Two hours we'll never get back... Two... Dos... This double episode could have taken thirty minutes and still have been wayyy too long. But some good things happened so I'll try not to be excessively bitter.

We get to see Miguel die again... almost as satisfying as the first time  though we didn't get to see Nazario pull the trigger this time around. We get only minimal sepia flashbacks of the good times with Miguel... but let's face it, there weren't all that many.

We're also treated to Nazario's surrender. He did it his way, first finishing off his beer. He swills it down, slowly stands up, and thrusts out his wrists

Killin' A Man Is Thirsty Work


"I don't regret what I did."

Yes, well wait until you get thirsty again, I'm betting... no beer for you for a very long time.

And last but not least... She's baaack! You heard right, Doris has returned and lest we forgot, reminds us that she is the governor's daughter.

But first we have a lot... and I do mean a lot... of dreary filler. So pour yourself a double of whatever, sit back, and endure.

Juanita assures Maricruz that she looks great in a cheap dress. Let's face it, Maricruz looks great in just about anything. She tells Juanita that she will get in touch with Octavio tomorrow to tell him where they are. She's anxious to see him. Lupita must be off the drugs because she seems much more animated and not so drowsy. Maybe she's joined a twelve step program.

Alfonso confirms his date for the opera with his mom. Both are very excited ... well, perhaps she's a bit more enthusiastic than he is. His new intended and her new companion lady will be going. She encourages him to dress nice.

Lo Que la Vida me Robo #4- 11/22/13: Dimmy Dim Dim Did A Bad, Bad Thing!



Ahoy, Amigis! I couldn't let go of the Nautical Theme we had going on LT. We do have the Naval element here ; ) I too am having withdrawls but as Ms. NovelaMaven quoted me, that ship has indeed sailed. At least we have a couple hunks and that gorgeous beach, and who knows maybe some shirtless beach scenes ; )


The Poor Fool According To Dimi:
Monse (Monserrat) and JL (Jose Luis) are making out on the beach and Dimi sees all. He thinks so that's the poor fool Monse is hooking up with! JL sees that Monse is worried about the running away and getting married. She isn't doubting, just thinks it won't be easy, seeing as they have no moola. JL lets her know he will get some lana (money) but she has this piece of land her Tia left her, and someone is interested in it, she could sell. JL doesn't want her doing that. He'll take care of her and everything she needs cause, say it with me Y'all, Te Amo!


The Smart Sexy Man:
Ale (Alejandro) is with that dirty dealing Bruno and wants to know how he got ahold of these documents (the promissory note and the deed). Well, you see Bruno tells him, Dimmy Dim Dim (Dimitri or Triple D) has been borrowing huge amounts of money from him. Since Dimmy Dim Dim couldn't pay him back the Admiral  signed a promissory note and the deed is collateral. Ale wants to know how it is that the Mendoza family, who rumor has it, doesn't have this kind of moola laying around, do tell! Bruno tells him although they have put up a good front, the family isn't as moneyed as it used to be. They are about to lose it all! Ale will take the promissory note and the deed and Bruno asks him if he'd like an envelope with that? Yeah, and by the by, think of the voice of The Donald, Bruno is fired! Bruno doesn't look surprised.

{This may take a while to get up today as I've got holiday commitments sprouting up out of nowhere. I'll try to get it up by later this evening. You have the page to comment for now. --Jardinera654 }

~~Parte 1~~


Cap. #34

Lo del Pasado:

Viewerville, fighting to view the characters through the garish glare of Party Princess Pinks and Purples, has noted that Jose Luis, aka Francisco Castro, aka Fakecisco has just thrown a damper on the party by showing up and stealing all Ricardo’s step Papi glory by bringing the best present there could be for his little daughter: a brand new garishly pink and purple bicycle complete with pink training wheels and streamers. Ric and Oriana head directly over to tell Fakecisco to take his Daddy From the Dark Side presence and the training bike with him. Guard-dog de Guerrero de Eliseo makes to pull his gun out of the back of his belt at the insult, but is stopped with a single hand gesture from JL. Padre Mariano of the windowpane plaid padre-collared shirts comes over to second the request.

Lo del Nuevo:

As Viewerville successfully fights the urge to do a color check of its tv screens, Mariano follows JL out to the street and lets him know that he knows who Fakecisco really is and hopes the man won’t sacrifice his wife’s and little girl’s futures just to get his own way. “—Don’t be so naive, Padre!!” “—And you? Don’t be so sure, Son!” JL fights the urge to argue any further and forces himself to walk away.

Capítulo 137

Alfonso (what is with all these characters being named with Al derivatives?), aka Fonzie, asks Maricruz to tell him about her life. He asks if she’s married. MC confesses that she was once, but that fate was the cause of her separation from her man. Fonzie says he doesn’t believe in fate. MC doesn’t really want to go there and he decides to leave sleeping dogs lie. He’s got an appointment with his fiancée, anyway. Yes, he admits, despite the times they are a changin’ when it comes to families choosing marital mates for their children, his wealthy parents apparently are slow adapters.

Ugh, we had to see a repeat of Fabi's walk of shame.  Poor little lamb.  I hate Seba.   

Piero reports that the signature on Oriana's wedding certificate and the bank docs are one and the same.  Ricky asks Piero to verify if JL had signing authority on that account. He even says he's willing to sell all his shares to JL so that he'll leave Ori alone.  Peori warns him against making such a drastic move.  He'd end up giving up his inheritance and leaving Paloma in the hands of that desgraciado.

Lo Que La Vida Me Robo # 3-11/20/13: More Avoidance Issues for Jose Luis, More Jewelry For Juventino, More Scheming for Graciela, and a Few Yearning Looks for Monserrat From Alejandro


RECAP BY JULIA R.



Hola! I'm Julia R and will be recapping every other Wed--sharing duties with Eli. I have something very important to confess before we begin: although I've been reading and loving Caray Caray! for a while, I'm actually a little embarrassed to admit that I'm a recapping virgin! Hope you won't mind the pun, but, yes, this is my first time ever, folks. Given the expertise on my excellent recapping team, I've got a lot to live up to, but I promise to do my best--some scenes have been combined because there was so much and to keep the flow going. I hope I didn't miss anything. Let's get started!

The old and a little new: Hacienda Mendoza. A nervous but excited Monserrat in a fetching little midriff-baring number that should be the envy of step squads across America runs to the door of her casa to let in her secret novio, José-Luis, whom she is hoping on this day will finally work up the nerve to talk to her father about their relationship. She has already told her father that Cabo Álvarez wants to speak to him and J-L was supposed to be waiting outside while she prepared Papa for the chit chat. However, poor Monserrat opens the door to find not J-L at all but actually Bachelor # 2--Guzmancito! (Sorry, I meant Alejandro Almonte, but I couldn't resist one shout out to my beloved Amores Verdaderos; I miss El Capitan Fabre and the LT crew, too, but am also very happy to see Sebastián Rulli back at the 9 PM time slot!)

Dear Caray readers, I thank you for your patience and trust allowing me to experience something new for me. I am glad I did it, but I am also sad, since this excellent experience happened with this awful Telenovela. Thanks again and see you in the comments. 
This is my last participation for the time being, and since this has not been discussed, I would like to add a couple points from yesterday (I know, it's hard to say goodbye). 

Also on Sunday...

Aunque la jaula sea de oro, no deja de ser prisión

It doesn't matter if dad is in jail or free. On Father's Day, you just have to go see him. Today, we witness Mostro hugging his kids and Patricia taking Fernandito to see Papá Rogelio. Patricia, who could be doing theater off Broadway right now but she missed the chance when she decided not to follow Elías, still rehearses in the hopes that one day she can succeed as a ventriloquist, throwing her voice so Rogelio thinks that the baby is starting to speak and that he is not missing those big moments in every father's life.

Later on, to Rogelio's surprise, Fernando brings Mr. Fernando senior, their father, but Rogelio is still very hurt to forgive... Mr Fernando, who moonshines sprinkling sugar on churros and playing maracas, didn't come to ask for anything, just to see how his sons were doing and to met his namesake and grandson. Rogelio changes his mind and thinks of all the times when he abused and hurt his brother and since now his life is changing, he is not going to perpetuate all this hate. They hug and cry.

Corazon Indomable, #136, 11/19/13 Portrait of a lady



I was dreading this episode, but I actually found it quite ok and fast paced (But keep in mind this is Corazon Indomable, so don’t expect too much).

Rehash from yesterday:

“Me rindo ante este amor!”(I surrender to this love) – MC says in a completely anticlimactic way and this line reminds me of a similar one said by Camila in Amor Bravio, during her much awaited and perfectly timed reunion with Daniel (Me rindo ante ti, me rindo ante mi, me rindo ante este amor – SWOON!) – Needless to say, when MC says it, it feels so flat to me, that I’m upset they’d use such a powerful line with this travesty couple.
MC and Tav still have a smokin’ chemistry and that’s so sad, because the direction of this scene didn’t do them any justice – their kiss has no spark, this is not a reunion kiss!

The new stuff:

MC is going to Mexico, Tav is staying behind for a while to make sure Simona is getting better (or dies once and for all); then he’ll join MC and Lupita to the city.
So, El Chulito and La Salvajita say one final farewell and then each goes their own way.

Tav tells Migreedy that he plans to go stay with Simona during her operation and after that he‘ll reunite with MC. Migreedy is pissed, when MC leaves the ranch he tries to convince her that Tav will never lover her, he can only love himself.
But, unlike the 130 episodes we’ve had to endure so far, today MC is willing to risk it all for love, open herself to the possibilities their future holds; she also wishes Migreedy to meditate on all the bad things that he’s done. Adios para siempre, she adds.
Good riddance to bad rubbish would be more likely, but MC has more class than I’d have in a similar situation.

Mentir Para Vivir #32 Tue 11/19/13 Cynderella's Interpretation

Please forgive me!  I do not have cable.  Last night I was watching Me Vida Me Robo (Or whatever) and in the last ten minutes, the show was interrupted by a soccer game.  I waited to see if it was a mistake, but Mentir didn't come on and I fell asleep.  So, I don't know if it aired or not.  Anyways, I depend on the ccs to do recaps.  I didn't get to see the aired episode or have the recaps.  I watched it on line, and the following will be my interpretation of what happened.  It's made up!  If I would have written the episode, this is what would have happened based on what I saw and the things that I could understand. 

My version will be up shortly!  In the meanwhile...talk amongst yourselves and share what you know.  See my version below.  See Vivi's version in the comments for the TRUTH!   [I've included both parts following Cynderella's summary.  Thanks to both of you since the rescheduling really screwed all of us up!  I almost missed both telenovela episodios myself last night. --Jardinera654]

Lo que la vida me robó, Capítulo 2, Tuesday, November 19, 2013: ♫ Love and marriage ♫ ... don't necessarily go together

The grief counselors have come and gone.  Now only time will complete the healing of the broken hearts of the folks on The Patio.  No more evenings with DamFab. No more crazy guys in pants of many colors.  No more Sabritas machine humming reassuringly in the background.   

["This is getting serious," whispers EJ.  "It may be time for some tough love."]

Mads rallies The Patio: "Snap out of it, y'all," she tells them. "That ship has sailed."  

[There's some uncomfortable shuffling of feet, a bit of grumbling here and there.  But at last they put down their nerfazos and settle down to watch.]

Let's see what is going on tonight in Aguazul, a lovely pueblo by the sea--  

Kitchen Chatter at Hacienda Almonte
María pouts because she chased down Alejandro to console him and he sent her away.   She is so worried. Everything is changing -- and she's afraid of losing Alejandro.  (Oh honey, we won't even go there.) 

All cats are gray in the dark
"I thought you were someone else," explains Montserrat with a smile.  
[She had hugged Alejandro, mistaking him for José Luis.  Hmm.  Is mis-hugged a word?]

PEAM, Tuesday 11/19/13 (#181): El Gran Final, pt 1 - Falling and Rising

Hold onto your hats for a finale so funny, you won't know when to START laughing, much less when to stop!

Chucho tells Demonica: you've alienated everyone who cared about you because you destroyed everyone in your path. Do the right thing for once and let me save Valentina. I'll even let you escape. You've been a good mother. I know you love Valentina. Let's save her together. OUR child. Don't you have any compassion?

"And who has compassion for ME?" Vero retorts. She holds the gun to her own head and fires, but it's too late - he's already knocking the gun out of her hand. How gallant.

Satan calls. "The kid tried to escape! She won't drink her water!" Vero beneficently tells Satan to put Vale on the phone to talk to Chucho. Vale stomps on one of Satan's giant feet with both of her tiny feet. While Chucho tells Vale to pray, Vero nails him in the shoulder with a big syringe. She tells Satan to get the kid under control. "You know what to do." She taunts Chucho while he slowly loses consciousness.

Corazon Indomable, Episode #135, Monday, November 18, 2013 Rescue, Food & Shelter – Octavio’s Recipe for Winning Back Maricruz……No Apologies Needed……WTH??!!!”



Written by LatinaInMD                                                                     

Rehash of JackAss and Simona meeting; Simona informs him that she is giving a hectare of land to HIS WIFE; in other words, not to you, Jackass.  (This is followed by a useless scene of Octavio and Migreedy – NEXT.)

As luggage is loaded into a car, a surprisingly lucid Simona bids farewell to her home and junior.  Simona makes Octavio promise never to separate from his son and to take him with him wherever he goes (as if Oblivio’s promises are worth anything).  Fortunately, Simona has the good sense to extract the same promise from Ofelia – if nothing else, Ofelia is loyal and more trustworthy than Oblivio.

JackAss visits Maricruz and informs her that Simona and Octavio are preparing to leave; Maricruz says she sincerely hopes Simona returns cured from her illness.  JackAss asks if Maricruz will see Octavio again if Simona returns cured.  Maricruz assures him that no matter what happens, she “will never see him again.”  (Mark those words, Viewerville.)  As much as we detest JackAss, we must agree when he tells her that he doesn’t believe her.

Now Simona assures Miguel that she holds him in high esteem too and asks that he too watch over her son.  (Excuse me while I laugh – the man can’t even take care of his own, nearly forgotten son, woman.)

An angry group of Realengueros stands in the way of a bulldozer preparing to raze all the little toy houses on which Maricruz blew her humongous (yeah, right) fortune.  JackAss just happens to be there, and they all want him to explain to them why “that woman” lied to them and “sold herself to those people for money”.  JackAss washes his hands of the problem, reminding them he doesn’t work there anymore.  Now the priest comes running to try to reason with the angry mob.

Maricruz starts bringing her belongings out to the ranch house’s veranda in little cardboard boxes tied with twine.  (Boxes and twine?!  Holy cow – now we know she is dead broke.)  JackAss comes running up to her and warns her that she is in grave danger.  She is incredulous and informs him (and Viewerville, of course) that she just barely received her compensation for the taken land, but it’s so little it will barely pay for her existing debts.  He warns her that the Realengo people think she betrayed them.

Mentir Para Vivir #31 Mon 11/18/13 Take a chill pill, dude!

I'm looking at you, Ricardo Sanchez Breton


After a long struggle with my laptop this weekend, I managed to make it work enough time to get a recap ready. I only watched the episode once, but managed to take some notes; if I skipped/ forgot something, please help me out in the comments.

Channeling her best Rhoda Penmark impression EVER, Alina is staring somewhere outside the screen – she’s looking at her father, Jose Luis, who’s come to see her at school. She runs into his arms, screaming with joy, while Jorge, the driver, seems glued to the sidewalk.
Father and daughter have a happy reunion, filled with kisses and hugs. Alina wants her daddy to join her at abuela’s house, but he can’t come with her just yet – he did bring her back the teddy bear she’d left behind, in Colombia, though. With Jorge watching over (but, really, what can he do?) JL gets invited to Alina’s party on Saturday and tells his daughter that her mom already knows he’s in town. Then he takes her in his arms and wants to take her back to Jorge’s car – after a brief staring match, he reluctantly allows the driver to hold Alina, and leaves.
We can see how shaken up he is by the encounter, he has tears in his eyes; but then his face turns rigid and determined – dark thoughts are circling in his brain.

Paloma and Orines are at Aresti Breton. Orines is telling the older lady that her husband showed up (and yes, they were married, but Orines refuses to explain why Lina doesn’t have his last name).  Paloma tells the story of how she hated her husband for what he had done, but she never considered leaving him because they lived different times. So, what does Ines plan to do, does she still love him?
Orines doesn’t want to think about it just now, the whole situation is too much to handle.
As they chat, they leave the office in order to go shopping for Alina’s party, and they resume their talk on a park bench. But Paloma’s phone keeps ringing; it’s Ricardo who found out the ladies left alone and is in full stalker mode (insert recap's title here)

PEAM #180 - El Ultimo Lunes, 11/18/13, We Need All the Angels and Guides We Can Get…

For the last Monday, I give you photos from Oaxaca: The Day of the Dead Parade by Students and my favorite Saturday Market with the Puppy Xolo, Bobo and also my own Willa.


Los Angeles Siempre Ayuden uno al otro


Los Escuincles (Xoloitzcuintle) Xolos were considered sacred dogs by the Aztecs (and also Toltecs, Maya and some other groups) because they believed the dogs were needed by their masters’ souls to help them safely through the underworld. They were also useful companion animals. According to Aztec mythology, the god Xolotl made the Xoloitzcuintli from a sliver of the Bone of Life from which all mankind was made. Xolotl gave this gift to Man with the instruction to guard it with his life and in exchange it would guide Man through the dangers of Mictlan, the world of Death, toward the Evening Star in the Heavens.   Wouldn't you like to have 5 month old Bobo here show you across the great water when you pass to the next world.  -text from Wikipedia


And last but never least, one more recent shot of my personal angel and guide, Willa! These images help me to look to the passing on of this telenovela and on across the great water to the other side where there is light and art and …..


This is my farewell recap many thanks to all the faithful for hanging in…. Hasta la proxima...

Jesús and Delia worry about the disappearance of Valentina and what hideous outcome is Veronica really capable of.

At Avon Alma and Pati discuss the conjugal visit and the upcoming wedding. Last, today is the day that Jesús they are going to arrest Veronica.

Veronica and Valentina in a park look at clouds, Valentina sees an Angel like her amiga Alma.  Veronica is not pleased.

Jesús talks to cops and his Alma worrying about the disappearance of Valentina.

They cannot find Veronica's car yet and Delia tells him not to worry. She consults with the abogada of Jesús and shows him his love's bracelet, which he knows well at first glance, it is indeed Cynthia's.

The monster Veronica stuffs candies into Valentina with a certain manic force.  Poor little Valentina tries to placate her Mamacita as always.

Jesús talks again with Delia who is so sure that a MOTHER won't hurt her daughter. But Jesús recites all the murder and mayhem committed by Veronica and asks her if she really thinks the demonic Veronica is such a good mother that she won't hurt her own daughter when she already sold her baby son, has killed a couple of innocent bystanders and so on and so why not...
