Mi corazon est tuyo, Capitulo 9, 07/31/14 Hashtag: Love is in the air



Hello, my Caray friends!
It’s been a while since my last recap and I might be a little rusty around the edges. None the less, here is my retelling of last night’s episode, in which we see how love stories start – telenovela style.

It's the first time I see the entrada, have they shown it before? It's made of a bunch of scenes with all the characters playfully running through a maze. We get to see some of the characters that are yet to appear in the show and the band who plays the main theme. It's cute, but the kiss between Fernando and Ana at the end looks fake and doesn't make me swoon.

The episodes picks up with the sad news that Ana and Maria are not related, after all. At first Ana refuses to accept that her lifelong dream hasn’t come true, but Maria tries to comfort her – she is sure that one day Ana will find her mom, so she shouldn’t lose hope.
They hug and Ana’s song gives the scene an extra edge:


si sientes frío / If you feel cold
y hay mucha niebla / And everything’s foggy
si las estrellas / If the stars
esconden su brillo / Are hiding their brightness
si mi princesa / If my princess
perdió su Castillo / Has lost her castle
jugando en la arena / Playing in the sand
solo recuerda / Only remember
yo voy contigo / I am with you

Ok, I need to take a quick break and call my mom – this song is always making me cry.

De Que Te Queiro, Te Quiero #146, July 31, 2014

De que el no es bipolar, no bipolar

MM gets ready to return to France after ditching Brat because of her pregnancy.  He actually says there is nothing to tie him to Mexico so he can leave now.  Wow, that’s icky.

Grumps continues to question why Hilda and Mr. T left and slowly comes to the conclusion it must be Rod’s fault.  Rosa arrives and hopefully these two will escape now.  Unfortunately, their future looks bleak because Rosa is about to give Grumps the Demon (Rod) tampered meds.

Que Pobres Tan Ricos 146, wednesday

Alejo is menacingly telling Lupe there is no option for divorce/annulment. Meanwhile, EmiliAhole trots up with some bit of electronics or something, "just a little gift from Dad." I think it's a Wii U, and Alejo acts like he forgot to buy games for it. Guess they're going shopping!  Since they are married, he doesn't have to ask permission!

Oh, some good news! Mike is w/ Doña Matti at the hospital and the doctor (and his colleagues, he is quick to point out) has done some tests and found her to be quite healthy. But he wants to do more tests, of course. Aww, she talks about how grateful she is of the help Chuy and Carmen gave her. Kindness is the greatest gift, etc...

Matti remains extremely calm, but is insistent that she will forgive Ahole. Mike protests a bit. She has an interesting stance - he'll always be my grandson and he needs to know that. She's grateful to him for sticking w/ Aureliano through everything. All she wants is to end the resentments. While explaining, she also mentions what may be the strategy with Ahole - keep your enemies close! Also, she doesn't know what kind of atrocities Ahole might sink to if even his grannie denounces him.

I don't know what the foundation is, but AS is at a pool giving a ton of money to some women (and also being mean and vain about the money that "God gave her." They still mock her for her disasters. When she leaves they all talk about her - she has returned to society more insufferable than ever! Now she's a terrible combination of Mother Teresa and Lady Di[iana?]. The ringleader has a wicked alternative plan for the thousands of dollars they just got from AS.

Oh yay, Tizoc's still in trouble! But unfortunately, it's not for being a turdbag. The agent just wants him to talk like a fresa.

At the mall, the twerp picks video games while Lupe attempts to have it out with Ahole. The vile child realizes they're fighting and runs up to talk about how great his dad is. Ahole: well, we can't fight in front of the kid. It's his new weapon - let's spend happy family time! Barf.

You have to learn that being a fresa is a way of life, of being a condescending dick. Fortunately it comes naturally to Tizoc.

Wendy is still talking about that mysterious woman from yesterday. She still wants to hire her. And GASP! The banana king is still married to the mother of his son!

Aaaaand AS is now transferring a ton of money to her personal account on the apparent cart-blanche authorization of her son Mike. Oops, how'd he fall for that one? Oh, she forged it. She has a moment with her dog.

Mati is surprised to see Frida still eating with the Menchaca. She notices that the girl is even paler than usual. Grandmotherly advice-dispencing mode, ACTIVATE! Oh dear lord could they go more overboard on the pregnancy cliches? She's putting all sorts of weird toppings on her food.

Haha look at Don Chuy playing the video game after EmiliAhole gets sent to bed! At bedtime though, the turd-twerp wants to live with his Dad.  She says no and he pouts.

Doña Mati puts a plan into action - she takes the chofer to go buy some street tacos, all greasy and meaty and intense, and shoves them under Frida's nose. Predictably, the girl runs and vomits, and Matti gives the camera a knowing look, like this was some devious abuela-trick to get verification of pregnancy.

Tomorrow, at the office, Matti is planning to bring her grandsons together in her office. Also she reveals to Mike that he was always Aureliano's favorite, but the man never showed it because of some grand plan to toughen him up and prepare him for leadership or some nonsense. She says that everything the old man did to make Mike angry was completely planned and calculated!  Flashback time! Grandpa wanted to make sure Mike was comfortable and strong and capable of holding his head high and succeeding on his own, not relying on a rich dad. Now it's time for the meeting... Abuelita power!

She makes the boys sit side by side. Closer, closer. Once Alejo is sufficiently uncomfortable, she announces that she is planning to resign as president. Aaaaand giving the presidency to Mike! Bomb drop! Oh cute, she makes Ahole vice-president! That'll be fun!

The new girl comes back to Guendy's. Her name is Rita, and Guendy got so excited about her that she left a customer sitting in a chair.

The boys start fighting and superabuelita shuts 'em up! I love her being tough like this!

Thus far, it seems like Leo has been oblivious to how awful his rich friends are, but it finally gets to him. I like that.

What's the one thing she wants Alejo to do. It's very mysterious and important, and she gives him a week.

Aww, poor Frida is worried and pregnant and she looks on TV and sees Tizoc being a dick in an interview and not acknowledging her!

Ha! Ahole has no one to take his worries to but Mini and Minimom. He basically is just taking out his rage on them but they get him back! He gets a call from Wilma, who's so mad that he's left her to rot. At first he's mean, but she says something (that I miss) that gets him to race down to jail to see her. Ok, they're now accusing her of killing Girón. She says he needs to confess to the murder or else.

Granny knows Frida's pregnant.

Lo Que La Vida Me Robó, #185, 7-30-2014: Pedro Beats Amelia Senseless, María Tries to Kill Montserrat, Gracie Steals Rosario's Dinner Plate, and Other Awful Incidents

Pedro and Amelia Have an Intimate Dinner;  Only Pedro Eats

Amanda fakes affection and concern, fussing over Pedro as has dinner and offering him more wine.  Finally, she suggests that he goes to rest in the bedroom.  He needs it, she maintains.  He agrees, throwing down his napkin on the table before he goes.  Alone at last, she is breathing heavily and seems nervous and afraid.

Ale Decides to Bring Glad Tidings of EZ to Carlotta

Montse wants to know what Alejandro wants to speak to them about.  Carlotta guesses it must be about Ezequiel, and Ale admits, yes, it is.  What did he do now? Carlotta wants to know.  She says that EZ ought to be in prison.  She claims she never wants to see him again for the rest of her life.

"EZ died last night,"  Alejandro informs her.

The news affects Carlotta, and she asks what happened, but before Alejandro can speak she begs, "Tell me he died trying to help Rosario.  Tell me in the end EZ did the right thing.  Tell me, please."

"Yes," Alejandro says, slowly.  "EZ sacrificed himself for us."

 "Thanks for telling me the story," Carlotta tells Alejandro.  She seems less anguished, and Montse tells her to get some rest.  Ale assure Carlotta that she is not alone and that together they will all move beyond this.  Alejandro and Montserrat leave Carlotta alone.  As she remembers what happened she begins to cry.

Mi corazon es tuyo #8, the war is declared, signed, sealed and delivered... lots of emotion pouring out tonight....

Repeat of Isabela all over Fernando, Fanny sees the kiss…

‘you forgot about my mom quick, didn’t you?’

Fernando runs after Fanny.

Luz asks Fernando if Ana can have dinner with us… que chido! ‘don’t like that word… you can say que padre!’

Fanny won’t open the door to Fernando, but she does to Ana. Ana tells Fanny her dad has the right to rebuild his life. Fanny says it’s too soon, besides that woman is all wrong… Ana tells her no woman will be right… never mind, cancel! Cancel! You need to get ready for the dinner… even I will be there… (why?) your little sis asked your dad that I eat with you all… Ana fakes getting sick and walks out.

Isabela tries to downplay Fanny’s reaction to Fernando. Fernando not convinced. It might be logical but it hurts. Isabela offers to talk to her but Fernando says not a good idea. He leaves turning the subject to work ‘We have not progressed in our project’. Isabela, after he leaves, says I would say we have made progress, dear.

Fanny brings her mom’s dress to Ana… Ana is so moved her eyes are full of tears… resists at first but gives in.

Lo Nuevo:
Dinner is all fancy stuff, seems wild boar (Jabali) is indeed in the grill, split in half, roast pork style..

All kids are elegant dressed… Isabela meets all the kids except Luz… Fanny tells Isabela that Ana la nana will have dinner with us. Isabela fakes not having any problem with it… Meanwhile, Luz is escorting Ana down the stairs. Fernando comes in and is in shock… (someone please help him shovel his chin off the floor…) ‘She is beautiful, right Papi?’ ‘Yeah! She is very elegant! (to Ana) … you are radiant.. very beautiful.' Ana tries to explain about Fanny Sr's dress. Fernando tells her Fanny already told him and he is ok with it. 'Shall we go?’ Luz walks Ana out, Fernando is walking behind them, still shocked at the ‘view’.

Everyone is at a huge table in the backyard. Isabela and Ana exchange forced greeetings. Isabela starts undermining Ana, 'I usually forget the names of the service', ‘Ana... that dress is very high fashion (alta costura), but no it can't, since the salary of a nanny is not enough money to buy such a fine outfit. Maybe I will switch jobs. I will take Ana’s job… (kids shreak) I was just kiddin!!’ Isabela starts making goo goo da da sounds to Luz… and singing the ‘dos elefantes’ song… Ana tells her Luz is not a 2 year old. She is 5. Isabela turns to the twins and asks them if they like the music group 'Parchis' (the boys are as confused as me... que??)... Fanny tells Isabela 'it is a group from the 80's, (with hand hashtag gesture) you should catch up and hashtag yourself up to date.

Fernando tells the kids that there is a different menu for them, they won’t eat the crab. Bruno goes to Ana and gives her a flash 101 course on how to snap the crab shell with the thongs(?). Ana tries it and the crab slips off the thong and ends up on Isabela’s head. Isabela insults Ana saying ‘it is obvious a woman of your ‘rank’ (nivel) does not know how to behave in ‘society’’Ana comes up with the excuse that maybe this one in particular is still alive (LOL!!). … All the kids laugh, even Fernando laughs wholeheartedly. ‘We should do this more often!! Too funny!’ Isabel tries to follow along ‘I would love to repeat the experience… of course we will not always count on the lovely and distinguished presence of the nanny… ‘ ‘Ana!’ ‘Whatever’. Fernando announces to Isabela that Manuela fixed her her favorite dish, wild boar. Isabel stands up to thank Fernando, but at that time Ana looks at the meat on the grill and gets so sick she spits the mouthful of water she had just taken from the goblet right into Isabela’s outfit. Fernando is not laughing this time, he is shocked. The kids laugh it off again. Then Isabela tries to win over Luz calling her beautiful, but Luz turns it around on her, saying ‘thanks, you too, but Ana is more beautiful’.

Sorry for the late recap, I have to do a bullet list just because work is kicking my butt!


  • Ana and Fernando arrive home for the birthday party where the kids are ready to go. The put on a play, sing songs and eat cake, there was so much candy there! They also give their father gifts,a book, an ugly sweater, a drawing and I forget what else. Ana also gives Fernando a gift, a nifty leather jacket! I wonder how much that set her back?
  • Johnny has to take a job as an exotic dancer, ewww who would pay to see that?
  • Isabella tries to wiggle her way into Fernando's life by offering to get him a less traditional tie and buys him a hot pink tie, I dig the color, she is then invited to his house to work on a project and to stay for dinner.
  • Fanny tells Gus to never,ever bother her again, she says he behaved like an animal and she never wants to see him again, captas?
  • Ximena thinks Nando is not a bad looking kid and plans to have him do her school work for her. Witch.

De Que es un Asesino, es un Asesino!

Hey all! I only just now saw a note from poor Karen whose power has gone out, so she can’t do the recap. I’m doing a very quick and dirty recap in place of the fabulous one we would have had from Karen had she seen the show.

Forgiveness or Truce?
Nat tells Grumps she really has no need or desire to forgive him, considering how horrible he was to her and their lack of emotional ties. But she's willing to make peace. They take each others hand. Grumps seems moved. Nat seems resigned but at peace with their truce.

El, Crazy or Crazy in Love?
El continues to be plagued by the even more diminutive Mr. Mushroom in devil form, harping on him about his lack of cash to allow Carmen and her kids to live in style. He consults Morales (who has just finally found a recent and large movement of cash made by Rod). Morales tells him money doesn’t matter; what matters is that El and Carm are made for each other. El feels a lot better, and the BFFs seem to have made peace.

While El is taking Carmen to work and Lupita to school, Lupita tells El she’s changed her mind about the expensive dress. She seems very sincere in saying that it’s a waste of money. El gets annoyed with Carmen because he thinks she put Lupita up to it and doesn’t believe he can provide. Carmen makes a very good point about not wasting money on frivolous whims, but all El hears is an insult to his manhood. He leaves in a huff. Carmen wonders if he’s bipolar and calls the Mushroom for a consult. The Mushroom promises to come over to the fonda to talk about it. Brigitte convinces him to take advantage of this opportunity to cause problems for Carm and El.

La Que La Vida Me Robo, capitulo 184. 07/29/14.


Skipping the old and straight into the new....

Pedro has the gun pointed at himself as EZ and I are yelling for him to shoot himself. Hurry up before the navy rushes in and arrest you. Now shoot! It looks like Pedro is about to pull the trigger but instead points the gun at a surprised EZ. You are here because I have decided it this way says Pedro. I wanted the pleasure to end your miserable pathetic life. Pedro pulls the trigger but unfortunately there are no bullets. EZ laughs and says you fell in my game. The plan is to turn you in alive so the navy can find Rosario and you can rot in prison for the rest of your life you miserable swine! Pedro rushes EZ and throws him up against the wall, throws insults at him and pistol whips him. The navy rush in but Pedro is long gone. The boys ask EZ were Pedro is and if he said anything about Rosario. Nothing replies EZ.

Outside a badly wigged Maria is waiting in a car and in hops Pedro. They speed off.

Amelia and Virginia sit down for a heart to heart chat. Amelia is angry that Virginia keeps questioning her decision to marry Pedro and send her away. Virginia believes Amelia sent her away to enjoy her marriage to Pedro and keep her from pestering them. Amelia admits the only reason she married Pedro was to find proof of his bad dealings. He never touched her or shared a bed with her. Virginia isn't buying her story. Amelia grows more frustrated and says there is just no talking to her. Virginia says she really needed her. She lost her father, sister and then her. Amelia says she did it all to protect her. She loves, missed and needs her. They are together now and nothing will separate them again. She wants her to find someone to love and form a family. She wants grand kids. Virginia says she met a man at Esme's house. His name is Eric. I don't think he is interested in Esme since he's a younger. I believe I caught his eye.

Que pobres tan ricos Tuesday: as anvils fall, the tarantulas gloat

I was delighted that Dona Mati's entrance was at the very end of last night's episode - I've had all day to look forward to her bringing the anvils. I had no subtitles so if you find this vague, fill it in!

Refritos: the fresas hate Tizoc's microbus song. and his manager threatens to kill him. I agree with them that he is an imbecil. Listening at home, Chuy reminds Carm that success is easy come easy go and he doesn't think Tizoc is managing very well.

So! At the editorial, Mati is welcomed into the room and embraced by los Ruizpalacios. "Quiet everybody. I am completely recovered and the doctor is here to confirm it. So we are not naming a new president just now." Mike sort of sticks out his tongue at Alejo, "so there."

Que Pobres tan Ricos #144 28 July 2014 Tizoc wakes up and confronts managers from hell, A-hole is drooling over his victory, but his victory is short lived

Emi argues with Lupe about how he has changed. Emi goes to his room in a huff.

Lupe calls A-hole. He tells her she has to show up to the office with him to finish baking the donuts (signing the papers). Lupe agrees, but reluctantly, she was not counting on having to show her face.

The nurse is brought to the police bldg… Top Cop asks her where is Mati. Nurse looks down.

At Tomas’ Dr Miranda gives Mati the green light, he can certify she is fully recouped… Mati so glad. She needed his opinion… He suggests she rest another few days. And if you can spend that time with family, even better. Mati says she is already with family. Regarding the RP she will meet up with them later.

At club, AS is turning it on Beba, she wants them to bet some of their jewelry… The ladies take their quick exit, don’t want to play strip poker… AS throws kisses to the wind as the ladies take off… She also fans her newly won cash (was this donation from Beba and Chabela to AS' charities?)…

Chuy and Mati celebrate that she is ready for coming back to the wrestling ring… Mati says even though she feels guilty of keeping her grandkids, especially MA, in the dark about where she is, she wants to wait a few days more. Mati wants to make sure she is really really REALLY 100% ready to face the music.

Top Cop tells MA and Saul that the nurse testified that she blames the staff at the geriatric clinic. She is trying to wash her hands… The nurse says that since Mati was in the other geriatric, she also escaped a few times… so Top Cop has to let her go.

Chuy tells Mati that when MA took her out of the geriatric clinic and took her to the fonda, she did not look as wide awake and healthy as she is now. Chuy felt bad when she would call for Aureliano since he could not come to help her. Mati says that with Chuy’s family around, she felt like she had Aureliano’s presence by her. Chuy says that is how he lost his Marcelita. Mati says that life has taught her that sooner or later our loved ones that have gone still are with us thanks to the great memories they left us. We have to let them go and live the best we can in their honor. (Boy Mati looks grrrrrrrrrreat!!)

Vilma calls A-hole. He is trying to avoid coming to see her… Again she insists she needs to see him in person. HE promises he will come tomorrow, too busy today. When he hangs up he says ‘and you better wait another 30 years for me’.

At Fonda, the Menchacas are eating… Lupe sends Emi to bed. Perla tells them Tizoc will have another show tomorrow night. Tizoc does not look anywhere as excited about the new gig. Perla says we don’t want to see you, we want to see the other artists that will be there. She is excited about her newly found fame (as makeup artist??) Carm can barely contain her excitement… Chuy looks at her weird, thinking it is about Mati. She is super happy about Wendy’s upcoming wedding. Everyone talks about weddings, Perla mentions couples that were expected to end up married and in the end… NOT, like MA and Lupe.. She ends up making Lupe cry…

MA tells AS and Frida that he still can’t find Mati. AS is making a comment that Mati is in heaven surrounded by angels. Maybe the nurse that they found could tell us the truth. Maybe we could buy her to tell us. AS thinks they can ‘buy’ anyone to do anything now that we have money again… The rest of the family protest in unison.

De que con dinero baila el perro, con dinero baila el perro

Rodrigo gets Big Al's ghost to go away and takes a call from the shady doctor who's going to help him get Grumps declared mentally incompetent.  Does this actor always play shady guys?

Morales hasn't tracked down the account where Rodrigo is depositing all the money.  It's not enough to accuse him of embezzlement, since he can just claim he took the money for something business-related.

Brigitte scolds the Mushroom Man for not taking advantage of her drunk mother.  He's pretty much resigned to going back to France, but, hey, he and Brig can be Facebook friends.

Alonso and Diego make plans to go visit Tiburcio and start his new drug regimen.

Carmen visits Eleazar and tries to use her feminine wiles on him, but he's too pissed about Carmen "kissing" the Mushroom Man.  She tries to tell him how things really went, but he won't listen and throws her out, saying it's OVER.  Carmen goes, but she says she hopes he won't be sorry later.  Eleazar grouses about knowing what he saw.  Carmen stands outside his door and calls the Mushroom Man to set up a meeting tomorrow morning at the fonda.

Mi Corazon Es Tuyo, #5. Beefcake, it's whats for dinner.

We continue our story with Fernando sitting on the couch with Ana waiting up for Fannys to come home, except Ana has fallen asleep on his shoulder. Fernando is so close to Ana and is about to lean in and kiss..., but no, he wakes her up, darn! She gets startled and jumps up and decides to go to bed. Fannys is tiptoeing in and proves how smart she really is by taking off her highheels and runs upstairs to say goodnight to Ana. 
The next morning, Ana gets to work. She has a tea party with Luz, wrestles with the twins, shows fashion tips to Alicia, dances with Sebastian, does Fanny’s nails, and looks in on Nando but leaves him alone.
At the end of the day, Ana tells the kids to say goodnight to their father, but they said when he’s in his library, he’s not to be disturbed. Ana goes in to talk to him and he quickly dismisses her. But Ana persists, and sends the kids one by one to say goodnight. As they come back out, Ana high fives them and states they have started a tradition.

Que Pobres tan Ricos #143 July 25, 2014 ... FINALLY... Nepo and Gwendy engaged!! and MATI found her Doctor Miranda!! Tomas the hero again!!

Here's a treat I found from one of my favorite movies of all time...
Mr Deeds goes to town court scene  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75Ic6hPsgmk

MA finds Frida eating ice cream like crazy in kitchen/dining room. She says there are so many changes going on in her life… y eso!


MA tells Frida that Lupe is too stubborn, too Menchaca.

Frida takes the entire gallon of ice cream to her room. MA protests.

Lawyer and A-hole meeting… A-hole fakes concern for his family going back to dirt poor.

Tay’s video shows up on TV, Frida is upset. With her painting  the pamphlet says 'inesperado?’ (unexpected?)

New:

At bar named La Amargura (sorrow), Gwendy and Saul are wrapped in each other’s arms… Gwendy seems to be half drunk, seems to be ready to take Saul home for some pow-wow.

At studio, Perla talks to the models she helped out with the make-up. The girls say she is AWESOME. Modeling is a very hard career, besides being very short, you end up rejected after only a few years. Tizoc comes to them… takes Perla away. The models are a bit sickened by Tizoc coming by(?)

Gwendy and Saul keep it going at the bar, he finally gets the check. Her cell phone rings. It is Lupe. Lupe tells her about Nepo’s visit. Gwendy afraid she returned with Nepo again… on the contrary, he came to tell her he doesn’t love her. That he has the hots for a girl from the barrio. Gwendy guesses who it could be. (carror hair?? LOL!) Lupe says nope, it is some girl named Gwendys! He finally realized you are the girl of his life!! Gwendy says ‘men are like the two legged cockroach, until they see her with another, they don’t realize how much they care. ‘ Lupe tells her don’t reject Nepo just for too much pride. Gwendy says no, she is now interested in someone else. Gwendy hangs up on Lupe and says ‘sorry but Nepo already lost me’. She goes back to Saul and kisses him… He is ready to go to her place… but she has changed her mind… he wonders if he did something inappropriate… you did, and I liked it, but the issue is not that… then what? … she ends up leaving him sitting there… without a real reason. ‘quedo de ti muy atentamente, lic Saul Ballesteros…’

Que Pobres Tan Ricos #142: 7/24/14: Que Oui, Oui, or Que Padre Depending On Your Point of View!

Hola Amiguis! Due to a snafu, I am going to do a brief summary of Pobres. I didn't record and watched in real time and didn't take notes. Please fill in the bits I missed. Things will not be in order, just what I remember.

Tomas finds Perla's diet pills and asks her about them. He tells Tizoc who has a chat with her. She feels she needs them she tells him, as the top models are all thin as rails. He assures her she doesn't need them, she is beautiful the way she is. Later. she goes with him to his video shoot, for that stupid celullar song, and fixes the model's makeup. They love it up the actual makeup artist is not happy.

Ahole, while talking to Emi, tells him Mama and I are married. Que Padre! Ahole assures him that soon, very soon they will all be together. Oh, and keep it a secret!

MA and Lupe have a big fight, right in the bread store. He finds out that Lupe is married to Ahole and MA is fit to be tied of course. Crap, crap! MA I think informs Saul.

Weekend Discussion: Novela Genres; What is your preference?


Some people seem to be bailing out on Lo Que la Vida Me Robo because of the turn the story has taken. As long as Televisa (and other production companies) are in cost-cutting mode we can expect story extensions that do things like this one.  I certainly will agree that doing this to a series that begins as a comedy without an advance set-up (such as we are probably getting in Mi Corazon es Tuyo) is completely wrong, but when novelas depend on suspense, we need to deal.  I'd much rather have this than filler scenes that just attempt to inflate the original story.

Personally, I'd like to see more mystery-oriented novelas if we're looking for more male or younger viewers. The gratuitous violence and gore in narco stories is something I find as unappealing as the glorification of their lifestyles.

I mourn the absence of a good novela de epoca, but I guess the networks think they're too expensive a risk against the bleeding of younger and male viewers.  Que lastima.

Be verbose, my friends.

Lo Que La Vida Me Robo 181, 24 July, 2014 - Check It Out; The Show Was Blah but the Patio Has A Lively Conversation


Robo 181
  
Introduction

Even a yeoman recapper cannot craft a good recap out of re-crap. At best, we resort to creative fabrication and humor; at worst we devolve into cynical and edgy observations that are often fueled by a tinge of self-loathing.

Please remind me, just WHY did I volunteer for this job?

I can only imagine that what we are viewing in Capitulo 181—sheer telenovela dreck—was not planned, but was a scrambling response to a tragedy that occurred in the life of Angelique Boyer—the unexpected los of her mother. We offer our deepest condolences to the actress.

A few days ago one of our finest recappers, Novela Maven, called for the services of a forensic psychiatrist to assist the not-so-good people of Aguazul. Now that is an interesting idea.

I am no Forensic Psychiatrist, but I play one on TV. Grin.

So, dear friends of the Patio of Lowered Expectations, and those of you who are hunkered down in the Bunker of Ironic Detachment; in order to encourage lively Friday conversation on the Board as we enter Ultimas Semanas, I offer to facilitate a discussion on the following (sort of) Forensic Sociological topic—the context that holds the story of Lo Que La Vida Me Robo.

Story and Context: The Mexican Drug War

The title of “Lo Que La Vida Me Robo” sums up the experience of its’ characters—they are bereft and victimized.  Life isn’t fair; something was stolen from them that was theirs as a natural human birthright. The characters of “Robo’ are all victims of life itself. They are aggrieved, and from this suffering all manner of maladaptive personal responses emerge.

Each of the main characters has suffered major losses, but each of them still starts the story with a lingering belief in ‘justice’, which is absolutely contrary to their personal experience.

Luz Lights the Way To Ana’s Return


Cap 4

Ana and Jennifer have wormed their way into Don Fernando's Veep’s office under the false pretense of being potential investors.  The veep gets a painful crick in his back while getting up out of his chair and Ana’s trying a variety of personal remedies. Don Fernando Lascurain arrives at the office where all is chaos.  DonFer opens the door and Ana has lots of ‘splainin’ to do.

She’s there unannounced per Bruno’s well-meaning instructions to beg forgiveness and ask for her job back since she’s heard that the kids like her and want her back.  DonFer says they do but that he’s not sure he does.  She’s broken his rules which were to be followed to the letter, and he especially didn’t like her walking out the door without saying a word.   Personal problems or whatever, it better not happen again!  He hands her a trial contract for one week’s more as a trial nanny. Ana promises he won’t have another bit of worry over her and goes to shake his hand.

De que otro clavo NO saca otro clavo, no saca otro clavo

Lovers’ Games, Courtship & Heartbreak
Nat enjoys the flashmob of her neighbors line dancing to a song about forgiveness, but her smile doesn’t turn upside down until the man asking for forgiveness actually appears with a bouquet of red roses. She once again says she can’t forgive him, and this time flashes her engagement ring for emphasis and informs Diego of her new commitment to Andrés.

Diego and Al return to Bro Central where Diego pouts, while admiring his new YouTube video, and Al tells him Nat’s reaction is not unusual considering what Diego did to her, and perhaps it’s time to move on. Simona calls, Diego heads to her office to talk business, and then she invites him to a photography art show. Diego picks her up at her fancy apartment, interrupting her 100th viewing of his YouTube video, and while she makes martinis he wonders if she could be the nail that drives out the other nail (clavo que saca otro clavo).

Breaking News! We now know who has been helping Pedro Medina! Lo que la vida me robo #!80 07/23/2014

Sorry for the late post, this is my 2nd recap in as many days and I fell asleep while working on it, my apologies! 

The pokey:

When we left off last night Maria was paying a visit to our always beautiful Alejandro, who was sitting in jail for assaulting a police officer, she was dressed as Alejandro's wife but while that was disturbing enough things got worse-way worse when Maria started to pretend to be Montserrat, Alejandro stood in the tiny jail cell- the look on his face said it all, he finally seemed to understand that Maria, his childhood friend and companion had lost her sh*t.

Maria continued with her crazy rant (still pretending to be Montserrat): "I love you so much Alejandro but you have to understand me, Jose Luis is very important to me..."- Alejandro begged her to stop, but like the Energizer Bunny she just kept going and going- "No, I know this is all my fault for loving two men, sometimes I think you would have been happier with Maria, she never shared her heart with anyone and to her you were the only thing that mattered, you were the only thing she lived for. That's why I understand the things she does to hurt me, I took away your love from her, I don't blame her for the things she does, really I don't, like what she did to my truck...I deserved it for being a slut", 'You did that?!" exclaims Alejandro as he calls for the guard- "No, Maria did it!", Alejandro continues to call for help but no one shows up, "anyway I just came to tell you that I love you and I'll be sure to give the kids a kiss when I get home". Alejandro tells her to stay away from his kids as she walks away-the guards never came.

Sadly, Lupe is yelling at MA yet again. Chuy says: "Mike, go. Now."

Minerva tells Alejo she did what he wanted, to the letter. "Now be sure the frygirl never sees my Mike again. Marry her soon and be happy." They sign the papers. are divorced, and share a moment of glee.

Mi Corazon Es Tuyo #3, July 23, 2014... Ana wins over most of the kids, Fanny discovers her secret and Ana leaves... But the resignation is short lived

Refritos: Ana leaves kitchen with the plate of walnut cookies, and gets the paint on her head.


She takes a deep breath to restrain herself from hurting Fanny. Ana leaves, the kids join hands.

Ana deals with the mouse in her shower. Very bravely she grabs it by tail and tosses it out the window.

Kids are trying to listen out the door but Ana doesn’t come out. Fanny has another prank in her list.

Ana showers all the paint off… ‘why does this happen to me???’

Fanny closes the hot water down in the basement. Ana starts shaking because the water gets cold.

Bruno catches the kids down in the basement. Cecilia comes up with the story that Sebastian needs a shower for his body odor. Bruno sends everyone upstairs.

Ana comes out of the shower. She confronts the kids in the halway ‘why? I did not do anything to you! / we promised we would make your time here miserable! / know something? He who gets angry loses… (Ana goes back in the bedroom) … I am strong!! Yes I can!! (Si se puede!!) … Jennifer calls Ana… ‘these kids are… a bit difficult… they covered me in green paint… /are they beasts? / … one notch higher… I will make these kids pay… even if it’s the last thing I do.

Fanny asks Ana why she has not left… (Ana is dressed back in her black sleeveless zippered dress. ) ‘Not all of us were lucky to be born in a palace… I might not be the most educated, but I am capable and persistent… and I will stay here for a long time!...’

All kids look at each other… Seems Nando and Luz are the ones least in agreement with the pranks.

Lo Nuevo:

Next prank, seems they are putting some kind of powder in Ana’s bed… with remote controls?... ah, there is a camera on the car…

Ana is sleeping, starts scratching like crazy… the twin boys are laughing. Ana runs out of her room and spots the twins… the car is recording her in the halway. Ana runs after the boys. Ana trips on the car and stumbles down the stairs. She ends up unconscious so the boys get scared, run down, and scream that she is dead… Bruno comes out. Bruno checks and is relieved that she is breathing… Nando comes down mad, asks the twins ‘what did you do to her??’ the boys reply ‘It was an accident!!’

De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero #140 - Wednesday 7/23

De que odio a los escritores, odiar a los escritores

Tonight’s theme is actually borrowed from our wonderful recapper Sara.  The writers continue to vex me but I’m trying to keep things positive.  So, I’m chanting how I hate them throughout the recap.  Forgive me from the outset if this vexes you but it did make me feel a bit better based on the wrong choices these scribes keep making. 

Carmen has to comfort Brat, who is depressed because her father didn’t visit her and has left the country.  Since she’s more upset about her potential meal ticket than actual interaction with her father, its hard to have sympathy for her.  Carmen allows Brat to miss her brother’s wedding.

Lo que la vida me robó, ep. 179, Tues 7/22/14: You can never find a forensic psychiatrist when you need one.

We have known three police chiefs in our time in Aguazul -- Loreto, Basurto and Álvarez -- and all have abused their power.  But the present officer-holder may be the most loathsome of the bunch.  Here he is, just happening to stroll by as Montserrat comes out of the church and sees that her van has been trashed, smashed and slashed.  The windows are shattered, the tires are flat and the word ZORRA is painted in large black letters on its side. 

¡Qué barbaridad¡ says Chief Álvarez.  "What an outrage!"  (But his smug expression belies his words.)  He'll have his men  investigate the incident, he says.

Montserrat isn't fooled.  She knows very well that he's responsible, and that it's no coincidence that he is there to enjoy her reaction.  (And he is enjoying himself.  He looks like a dog sniffing around its own steaming excrement.)

Tizoc and Perla are up in the old RP Penthouse and Tizoc thinks this whole thingy of Frida being preggers is a false alarm. Perla says, yeah in your dreams. She also tells him about MA and Lupe maybe getting together. Tizoc isn't happy and neither is Perla, I wonder why???? Hmmmmm???????

Leo is talking to Diego and he tells Diego their relationship is too complicated, so it's friends, si? Deigo just got his heart broken. Boo, Hiss on Leo! Leo says his familia knows about him being gay, but not his friends and so this is why it's complicated. Deigo sadly goes away and Leo is OMGeeing cause he discovered his car is a hard top convertible. Oh, Please!!!!!

MA and Lupe did a quick smooch and he gives her directions to where Frida is, it's for Tizoc of course. Now MA wants another meet with Lupe when she has more time to dish. He wants to look in her eyes and see her smile, she finally agrees.

Qué Pobres, Lunes 7/21/14 (#139): I Wasn't Expecting the Spanish Inquisition

Frida's pregnancy test results are not explicitly revealed, but the look on her face tells us that she is not pleased. After giving Frida a moment to herself on the bench, the nurse approaches with some pamphlets and says that it doesn't look as though Frida's happy. Frida says she's not sure. (First she ate chicken soup, and now she's killed a rabbit! What's next for this lapsed vegetarian?)

AS and MA sit at opposite ends of a very long dinner table. Leo is sitting somewhere in the middle (symbolism much?). Despite the fact that they never used to eat meals together in the before-time, AS is annoyed that Frida is very late. In fact, Frida finally comes home, says it was a long day planning a protest against some kind of genetic engineering or something, and is going straight to bed. Leo decides to take his dinner to his room, too. That leaves MA and AS alone to chat with one another, or so you'd think.

Emi has apparently eaten all he's going to eat tonight, so Lupe sends him to bed. (He has to be reminded to take his plate.) Actually this is more about getting him out of the room so that Lupe and Chuy can confront Tizoc about the positive pregnancy test that wasn't Lupe's or Perla's. Tizoc is very defensive: "What is this, the Inquisition?"

Vilma calls Ahole and demands to see him tomorrow. He doesn't want to go, but she insists. He makes a big deal of having to rearrange his schedule to accommodate her, and jokes that her own schedule is so open lately.

De que se volvió viral, volvió viral

Diego visits the Cacares House of Horrors to tell Lala (not Hilda) about his plans to help Tiburcio recover, so he can tell everyone what he knows about Alberto's murder.  Lala will be in charge of administering the medication.

Carmen sits Mally down at the fonda to talk to her about the upcoming nuptials and give Mally her blessing.

Lala makes an unnecessary grocery list to get Hilda out of the house.  As Hilda points out, there's plenty of food for the few people left.

Luz comes to the fonda to catch up with Carmen.  And, more importantly, find out if Carmen is going to jump into Paul the Mushroom Man's arms.  Hell no! says Carmen.  She happily tells Luz about Abdul's upcoming wedding and they joke that she really needs to change the name of a certain crab dish on the fonda's menu.

Eleazar enlists Lupita to help him figure out what he said the day he was drugged out of his mind.  La Detective Lupita is on the case!

Tell me, José Luis, what do you know about Pedro Medina?”

I cannot tell you,” he said. He emphasized each word to show he was out of patience.

Very well, as you wish. How sad it is that you are no longer the same person.”

He walked out, leaving his former friend to think about that. Mad Dog Álvarez looked like it didn't bother him.

Que Pobres tan Ricos #138 18 July 2014. The RP finally say goodbye to Menchaca manor. They get back home but with credit limits / budgets. Plus 2 pregnancy tests, one positive.. whose 'prize' is it anyway?

Refrito: Lupe ‘telling’ MA this will be last time I have to see you.


At Salomon’s, AS and Leo are there. She wants all her stuff back. She will pay him every cent. Salomon asks if this is the ‘dia de los inocentes’ (april fools day?) he will find boxes and newspapers to wrap her ‘trickets’ in LOL! Leo wants to excuse himself, but she won’t let him go. She says you will have time to say goodbye to your cheeky friend. (Cacheton) AS says Leo should go back to school in NY.

Saul and MA at fonda. MA tells Saul he will continue pursuing the juices business, but he will NEVER go back to the Editorial business. Leo comes in. wants MA to go get Frida, she is crying in bathroom, according to Leo she will be missing La Nopalera. She is in bathroom checking her pregnancy test. (was that positive? I missed it.)

At kitchen, AS, as a grateful gesture, wants to leave Carm and Lupe her culinary recipes book/scrapbook. Beef Stroganoff, minestrone, tortellinis (love the way Carm pronounced it as ‘y’). AS recommends they use cognac to elevate the taste of dishes. Use the best ingredients always. Chuy thanks her for all the advice. Lupe also thanks her. AS repeats that it is an act of charity now that she is leaving. AS says later will send someone to pick up their belongings.

It is Lupe’s turn to lock herself in bathroom to use a pregnancy test.

At fonda, Chuy is saying farewell to AS and Leo. Leo says thank you very much, good luck and ‘todo cool’. Perla is happy to see them go. MA says even through all we got through, all these months have been the best part of his life. MA says will be watching for them. Chuy says thanks but better keep your distance. MA wants them to know they can count on him for ANYTHING. One last ‘sunshine’ sharing embrace. MA whispers to Carm that he is leaving, thank you for all the support. She will not stop trying to vow for him with Lupita. AS has waited enough, urges MA to wrap it up. Finally will say goodbye to La Nopalera. Arrivederci!!

  • Rodrigo tried to make a transfer to his Cayman Island account. He gets the blue screen of death mid transaction. He confirms with the bank that the transaction was completed and takes the laptop to the IT guy.
  • A drugged Eleazar  sings and tells Carmen he wants to make a baby with her. She calls the doctor. When Eleazar wakes up from the injection the doctor gave him, he tells Carmen he and Kimberly are kaput. Carmen tells him to come see her and act just like he did while on drugs. We are subjected to time wasting scenes in which Alonso tries to hypnotize El so he can remember what he did under the influence.

Pobres 7/16: EmiliAhole

The little twerp is now in full EmiliAhole mode. He's unrepentant for being a dick and saying awful things. Tizoc and Chuy look on in dismay.

Ana Sofia gives Leo some crap about the plebian juice business and asks for cash for a cab. She claims all the money he's given her has gone to the loan shark who helped pay for the wedding. Leo: don't remind me of that humiluqui momento de mi viduqi! But he gives her the cash.

Cute scene w/ Minerva and her mom trying to confront Ahole as he plays with his corn dog.

Ana Sofia shows up at Mini's place, looking for Ahole. The ladies mock her. Barbs are traded. She gets through to talk to Alejo, who confirms that Mike has his money back. More barbs.

Guendy flirts w/ Saul hardcore. She calls him Whitey. They wind up making out and leave the bar together.

Sadly, Don Chuy has been brought to tears by the cruelties of his grandson. He reminisces on the most painful defeats of his wrestling career, none of which hurt as much as this. Aww I really, really hope we see the kid get some comeuppance in this show.

Returning from her fact-finding mission, Ana Sofia hops out of her cab and refuses to pay for it. Yet again, Diego winds up paying. Leo and Frida have been worried sick - where have you been, mom? Drinking? AA meeting? She says, don't even speak to me of AA. I've been so anxious I'm liable to drink my parisian perfumes.

Doña Matty wants Chuy to infiltrate her former office and retrieve a phone that has contact info of a sympathetic doctor Miranda who could help get her out from under Ahole's conservatorship.

Mike calls Lupe. "I know you don't believe me [because you saw me naked in bed with my ex]... many would feel the same in your shoes." Understatement?

Yes, Frida is obviously pregnant. Because in the world of trope-y tv no one who isn't pregnant ever eats a midnight snack.

Lupe learns that Tizoc not only got his record deal as a result of dealing with the devil (Ahole), but also signed the contract without reading it. Menso.

Ana Sofia, armed with her new knowledge, goes on a binge-y shopping spree, possibly drunk too. That fur coat and hat are really going to be practical, am I right? Anyway, she declares that she won't be paying. The shopkeepers can call the cops or just make her son pay for them. I'm pretty sure any ritzy establishment knows better than to make deals like this. But the dummies go for it.

Mike comes rushing to the scene to find his infantile mom in the shop with some cops. She throws a tantrum when he refuses to pay, claiming he doesn't have the money. She starts tearing and stomping on the expensive stuff when he suggests she return it. He breaks down and pays only when the police get out the handcuffs. Later, at home, she tells the fam about the money.

Ahole is a menacing, abusive dick to his employee who merely asked him if she should let Lupe in. From now on, anyone in that family can get in without asking (convenient for later). Lupe comes in, tells him to leave her family alone, and he reveals his plan: marry me or I'll ruin your family. I've got Mike, Tizoc, your son, your sister, practically everybody by the balls. How romantic!

Meanwhile, Don Chuy gets a freebie on his infiltration of the office because the receptionist has just been ordered to let Lupe's family in without question, but he first stops by to eavesdrop on Ahole's blackmail. Enraged, he goes full Luchador and beats the crap out of the bastard. Unfortunately, this means that Ahole now has Don Chuy by the balls, too. 


Thanks for reading guys, please discuss and fill in on the stuff I missed!

Lo Que La Vida Me Robó #176, 7-16-2014. Adolfo proposes; Pedro disposes--or at least tries a few things to exact vengeance.


Red Sky at Morning, Melodrama Warning!

For us in Viewerville it's been mere 24 hours since the events of Capitulo 175, but for our friends in that anomaly of space-time that is Agua Azul, México, a whole year has passed since just last night! During that year, some of them seem to have been given a reprieve from the drama and had a much-deserved spate of fairly ordinary life off-screen; others have continued on their various downward spirals.  But it looks like the storm clouds of crazy are gathering and our Aguazuleños are now worthy of filming again.   Let's check in on as many of them as we can:

In Her Beautiful House by the Sea

Still beautiful Montserrat is sitting in the living room with her adorable and well-behaved children, Laurito and Romina.  We learn that Romina has just begun to walk and that if Laurito were a US citizen he would be a firm supporter of Title IX as he is impatient to be able to play fútbol with her.   The doorbell rings.  In bursts José-Luis still sporting his sport coat and bright T-shirt look, eager to see his little girl.  It's worth noting that she begins crying as soon as he takes her from Montserrat.

Look at what I can do with this gun ma' Lo que la Vida me Robo 175 07/15/2014

Recap fully done!


A new baby has been born, sadly her daddy is a nut job:

At the hacienda everyone rejoices at the birth of a new baby, both baby and mother are healthy and plans are made for both to make a trip back to Agua Azul for a check up. Alejandro Almonte, who is beautiful-but sadly not very bright, tries to reassure his wife by telling her that he will accept the baby as if she were his own, heck, he even says that although it is not possible he would love for the baby to be named Alejandra.

Jose Luis, the baby daddy just happens to walk in right at the moment and he is not a happy camper, he goes off on Alejandro and Montserrat asking them what's wrong with them, how dare they try and name the baby without his input? She is his daughter and he will name her! I kinda want to suggest that they toss a coin and whoever wins gets to name her, problem solved!

I still think they are editing the parts where everyone drops acid or smokes crack or otherwise suffers some psychotic break. I have no other explanation for the absolutely out-of-chartacter actions I witnessed tonight.

The Investigation
The writers have decided we need a dose of realism. Morales is doing the investigation thing and questioning Hilda. Tiburcio sits in the background and makes moaning sounds. Hilda lets Morales search the garden. Vicente receives a call from his friend Rodolfo the procurador. Morales is *thisclose* to finding the wrench when Vicente throws him off the property for searching without a warrant.

De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero #130/131- Mon 7/14

De que no hay pruebas, no hay pruebas

Brigitte is relieved to hear from Alonso that Alberto visited Rodrigo, but things didn't seem to "get very far" between them.  She wants him to call Al's parents, but Alonso doesn't want to worry them if he doesn't need to.  Brigitte decides she doesn't want to wait alone and calls Carmen, but Carmen is busy waiting for Natalia to come home.  "Natalia, Natalia, Natalia!" whines Brigitte yet again.  Hey, there you are, Brat…wondered where you'd gotten to!  Carmen says Natalia's had a rough day, what with finding out who her "real" parents are.  Brigitte and Lupita are both surprised to hear this.

Lupita goes to tell Paolo and drags him out to the living room so they can interrogate Carmen.

Carmen tells Brigitte who Natalia's parents are.  Brigitte says "Why's she upset, then?  This is like winning the lottery!"  Carmen gets tired of Brat's attitude, so Brat gives her some more, saying of course she's having a worse day that Nat.  Lupita wonders how Tad is Nat's father if he didn't, um, have anything to do with Carmen.  Carmen gives them the deets.  Paolo figures Tad and Irene must be thrilled to have found her.

Padre Juancho finishes giving her the story and apologizes on behalf of…pretty much everybody who knew…for not being able to find the right time to tell her.  PJ suggests she be thankful for having 3 awesome parents and just treat Irene with the same affection she always has.

Carmen keeps telling Paolo and Lupita about the great Telling Nat debacle.  Irene shows up and  Paolo and Lupita welcome Irene to the family.  PJ calls Carmen and tells her Nat listened to his explanations and seemed calmer.

Qué Pobres, Lunes 7/14/14 (#135): The Perils of Post-Liberation Stress

I feel badly about not including an earworm on Thursday's recap as Madelaine usually does, so here is one for this episode: Dizzy, in honor of Mati, Perla, and Lupe.

The Great Escape
Grandma Mati is cheery and alert in Tomas's spare room. She thanks Tom and Chuy for finding her when she was "this close" to being lost. She was dizzy and confused and couldn't remember anything, but Chuy says it was actually her bad memory that saved her, because...

Chapter 174: Eye of the Storm


Almonte Hacienda: Victor Hernandez had always been a romantic. He had begun his courtship of the beautiful Nadia Argüelles with a cart full of flowers on the estate of his best friend. In the same place he brought her a chamber orchestra for the proposal. She was delighted. Their little daughter watched them. She smiled at her parents' happiness. They had no idea what would shortly be waiting for them.

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS -- Reina de Corazones: week of July 14, 2014

Here is a separate page -- posted  a day early -- just for conversations about Reina de Corazones.

Even though a lot of people are watching and commenting, no one, as yet, has volunteered to recap on a regular basis.  Mauricio and Sara stepped up to help in the first week, and I did a couple of minicaps too.  For week two, I've agreed to write a brief summary of Monday's episode; Sara has volunteered to recap Wednesday and Friday.

Is anyone interested in writing a brief recap of Tuesday's or Thursday's episode this week?

Is anyone interested in recapping this one regularly?

Folks, if no one volunteers, we'll just have comments.  It's up to you!

Have a wonderful week!

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS: THE FRONT PAGE -- El Señor de los Cielos II, En Otra Piel, et cetera, week of July 14, 2014

As I am writing this, I see that we reached 200 comments by Sunday evening.  (We haven't done that in a while!)  Anyway, I decided to post early (Sunday night instead of Monday) and to give  Reina de Corazones its own page this week.  If the high volume of comments continues, then Jean and I  can keep the separate pages going.

While it was kind of nice to have our conversations crossing each other and for us to read over each other's shoulders on one page, at a certain point it becomes unwieldy. It began to feel as if Cielos and En Otra Piel were being drowned out.

So this is the new page for Cielos, En Otra Piel and any other Telemundo or Unimás show you feel like discussing.

Reina de Corazones comments and mini-recaps will be on a separate page.

Have a great week!

De Que Te Quiero Te Quiero #128 & 129, 7/11/2014

Both Part 1 and Part 2 are now up!!

De Que Esta Comedia Se Volvio Tragedia, Se Volvio Tragedia 

Recap by LatinaInMD

Part One

These comedy writers played a dirty trick on us.  Months and months of the comedy train going in circles and just when we thought the plot was heading somewhere interesting…wham…they throw a wrench in it…literally!!!!

We begin with a quick re-hash - in no particular order:  Diego continues to whine about Natalia’s infidelity, first to his “shrimpy shrink” friend and then to his dear aunt Irene, both of whom try to reason with him; alas, he jumps off the comedy train and skips town, not a moment too soon before the comedy train derails.  In the meantime, Natalia drowns her sorrows in her coffee.  In another part of town, Alberto (until now a mere sideshow in the Brigitte-Rod-Alberto “love triangle”) suddenly has plans for a future (ah, the irony!!!) with Bri, despite the countless clues she’s given him that she could care less.  Let’s start off with a weekend meal to introduce your whole family to my parents while they are in town, he says.  All she cares about is what HIS parents will think about HER family, but she appears genuinely touched when Alberto reminds her she should be proud of her family.

Natalia and her fake mama Carmen agree it’s best for her to quit her job, and she heads to Caprico to do just that.  A dapper-looking Andres (who has just come back into town) shows up at Caprico with a gorgeous bouquet of red roses, ready to grovel some more for a little bit of her love.  But she is not there yet, so he leaves the bouquet for her and departs.  Brigitte shows up at work first and just as she starts admiring the roses, grumpy grandpa shows up and she has to bear his groans and moans about all the employees who never bother to show up on time.  He’s got a point there!!!  She offers to help, but he grunts that the only thing she can do for him is locate Natalia…stat!!!  Brigitte reaches for her phone in her purse and…ooops!!!....she realizes she left it in Alberto’s car.

Lo que la vida me robó, ep. 173, Fri. 7/11/14: We'll see our grandchildren building castles in the sand...Kayn aynhoreh.*

[Kayn aynhoreh is Yiddish and it means something like "No evil eye!"  It's what you say when you've been lucky and you want to ward off envious spirits.]

Part One:  The Ogre is forced to set the Princess free.

The dark brooding ogre pounds on the door and orders the princess to let him in.  "You're going to have to live the rest of your life with the man you hate.  Open the door!"

Within the chamber, the lovely princess weeps.

The handsome prince runs to the home of Faithful Macario, and he arms himself with a pistol.  He is prepared to kill the ogre and rescue the woman he loves.  Both Macario's good woman Dominga and the old priest Anselmo try to dissuade the prince.  But the prince knows what he must do, and he will not be stopped.

Que Pobres tan Ricos #134 A-hole sues Chuy about the Menchaca house. Emiliano continues to act A-holish. Saul tries to get MA to retake his old richy rich life... Chuy's mystery is revealed!! MAAAATIII!! MAAAATIII!!!

Refrito: MA seeing a different woman in wheelchair.

Lupe tells A-hole she’s not afraid of him. He asks if she will bring a wrestler to fight him. Lupe says she is enough on her own to fight with nails and teeth for her son. A-hole changes strategy and gets pleading, asks her to come be a family with him and Emiliano. Lupe is confused at his change of statement. A-hole tries to convince her that she is and will always be the most important for Emiliano. You have nothing to lose.

MA yelling at the staff at the senior center. The manager says he was given paperwork for the woman as Matilde widow of RP… MA is still outraged.

Saul is more calm and asks them who brought Mati in. Was it ARP? Nurse says ARP sent Mati, but the one that brought her was a nurse that used to work for us(the senior home) but quit recently.

Now A-hole is trying to make Lupe believe that she is unstable temper-wise… A-hole reminds Lupe that the school director is witness to Lupe losing her cool in front of Emiliano. (come on Lupe! Wake up and smell the rat!!) Emiliano comes over and is all lovey-dovey with A-hole. Lupe is just frozen there… she even lets Emiliano go alone with A-hole.(she is THAT shocked... about how well these two get together?).

At Fonda, AS is still whinning with herself about having come back to live in the 'cuchitril'. Leo and Frida outside the penthouse door are coaching each other to calm down before they walk in. Leo gives AS two options… we either 1) stay here or 2) we go to the shelter of the indigents(basically homeless shelter).
AS wants booze. Leo and Frida won’t give her any. Leo takes DaVinci on his arm and asks AS to breathe. AS takes DaVinci back and tells DaVinci that he is the only one that understands her. (I missed the detail that Leo told DaVinci that he needed to raise his hand/leg to speak LOL! thanks forum friends!)

MA and Saul out on the street, MA is really ansi, he has to find out NOW where abuela is.

At Fonda, Chuy does not like seeing Lupe so down in spirits. Lupe says lets talk about the finances… we have a lot of expenses and have to figure out where to get more moolah. She tells Tizoc he needs to go get a job and help out. Tizoc says he is only good for ‘the cantata’. Emiliano comes down. Lupe asks him what is up. Emiliano says ‘I am fed up with eating the same thing every day. Can’t we eat something different?’ Lupe is not liking at all seeing Emiliano talk like this, so asks him 'what do you prefer? To eat or not to eat?'

Weekend Discussion: Karmageddon in Aguazul (Lo Que la Vida Me Robo)


It's that time again, amigos! Although this is a little early, the number of bad guys in this tale is such that we already see the villains turning on each other. Let's cut loose now and dish about what should happen to the evil ones in our story. As previously, we should think about it both ways:
  1. What do you think the writers will do to them?
  2. What do you think should happen to them?
Let's start with their queen and work our way down:

Lo Que La Vida Me Robo 172 - 10 July, 2014 - Stuck On Replay: Another Of Maria’s Plots Bites The Dust


It Looks Like Jose Luis  Will Allow Montserrat To Leave—Maybe
Jose Luis wants to know if Montserrat would forgive a betrayal from Alejandro. Whatever happens, he will be there waiting. Montserrat goes to pack her bags. Tomorrow she will leave the house.

I’ll Just Take The Houses and Lands; Thanks
Over at the judge’s chambers, Father Anselmo, the judge and Alejandro meet. The judge tells Padre that he trusts him completely but his declaration is too late. Father Anselmo emphatically retorts that it is never late to correct an injustice. But the judge clarifies that the tests run on the document prove forever and anon that Alejandro is the only true heir of Benjamin Almonte. Padre’s declaration does not clear Alejandro because he is already proven to be the rightful Almonte heir. As of this moment he has recovered his name, Alejandro Almonte Dominguez and all that goes with it. Congratulations!

Father Anselmo praises God for being very just. Despite all that has happened nothing has dimmed his faith. Padre encourages Alejandro and hopes he has learned from his previous errors.

Alejandro tells the Father that he is very fortunate. Not only is he recovering his name, but he is also recovering his family.

The Judge tells them that his decision is absolutely irrevocable but that it might take a while for Alejandro to recover everything. But Alejandro is way ahead of everyone else. He says that Fabiola has transferred ALL of the money to another person. He doesn’t want a penny of the money anyway. Anselmo is appalled by yet another miscarriage of justice, and he asks,

“Who ended up with the money?”
“Graciela Mendoza,” answers Alejandro.

The Judge recognizes her name as the woman who formerly perjured herself in the matter of Don Benjamin’s will. Padre Anselmo wants to know – How did that happen?

Qué Pobres, Jueves 7/10/14 (#133): Carrots and Sticks

Hola, amigs. I am filling in for Madelaine this evening.

So MA makes his triumphant return to the fonda, and Lupita greets him with a punch in the face. MA has no idea why, but he tries to apologize anyway, and he even mentions the letter (that he doesn't know Lupita never got) but Lupe is too angry to think about it.

MA says he apologized to Mini too, and she took it a lot better than Lupe is, "and then something weird happened." Again, Lupe is too angry to focus on the "something weird" and thinks "apology" is a strange way to describe being naked in bed with Minerva. (Perla and Carmelita are listening at the door, by the way.)

MA doesn't know what Lupe is talking about and says "wow, after all this time I would have thought you'd know me better than that" and Lupe replies sarcastically "you're right about that!" She gives back his swanky hand-crafted upcycled PVC engagement ring, but don't worry! Her finger won't be naked very long!

De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero #126 & 127, 7/10/14

De que terminaron para siempre, terminaron para siempre (o así se dicen)

The Good
Mara’s mom is DEAD!!! Yay! If she made peace with Mara before she kicked the bucket, we never see it. I’m guessing she went out like the bitch she was, despite what Padre says about her repenting. At the funeral home, some of her equally witchy church lady friends talk about Mara and Paolo when they go off to get coffee, and vow to separate them as a sign of respect to Mara’s mom. Carmen overhears, and in a very firm, but polite way tells them that Paolo is her son, stop talking behind people’s backs, Mara’s mom is now with God (just where she needs to be), and SHE and her family will be taking care of Mara now, so back off bitches! The next day, Mara returns to her mom’s apartment (decked out in God and Jesus bling) with Paolo, and lights candles next to the box of her mom’s ashes. She cries about being all alone now, and Paolo tells her she’s not alone. She has him!

La Jaiba suffers almost her whole bus ride listening to a babbling nun sitting next to her. She’s glad to see the back end of the nun when she gets off the bus, but then gets a new seatmate in the form of a very large man. She celebrates when she finally gets home to Veracruz—she’ll be able to start over with the money she made from the sale of La Jaiba Loca since she sold it above the real value. She opens her suitcase, looking for her money, and finds…bibles, crosses, and black nun’s clothes. She remembers back to the gabby nun carelessly grabbing a suitcase, HER suitcase, from the overhead compartment as she got off the bus and started her missionary journey to far off lands. I bet those poor kids in Africa will be grateful for the money. Ha! It’s back to hooking on the streets for Jaiba.

The return Lo que LA Vida me robo 171 07/09/2014

I hope you all had plenty of tissues on hand tonight because this episode brought on the feels! I swear ninjas broke into my house and started to cut up onions-and my eyes got all moist...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Now on to the recap, enjoy!

Dude,our mom is a scumbag:

Fabiola, our resident drunk is now behind bars, how she has managed to survive without her wine is anyone's guess, she tells her new found siblings that Graciela is a big fake, everything about her is a lie, including her name. She explains that Amalia told her the truth about Graciela, she was born in poverty to a seamstress and her real name is Gaudencia! She also explains that she got tricked into transferring all her money to one of her mothers accounts only to be ditched. Alejandro and Montserrat feel for her-and Alejandro offers to get her a lawyer to help reduce the time she spends in prison but he makes it clear that he can not forgive her and he tells her that she needs to pay for the fraud she committed and for stealing seven years of his life.

Pobres, Wednesday: World-cup shunting claims another victim

Hi guys, the game was wrapping up when I left home last night, so I assumed my extra hour of recording time would be enough to catch our show. Unfortunately it went way late and I only captured the first 15 minutes!

I couldn't find recordings of the episode in the usual places online, so I'll just do what I can with what i've got!

Lupita is confused - where's her boyfriend? The family attempts to comfort her. Leo also wonders where he is, wants to call the policuqui, but Saul says they gotta wait 24 hours.

HAHAHA Mini, her mom, and Ahole struggling to heave Mike into the bed. Ahole wants the discovery to seem natural and insults the ladies (he calls them plásticas).

Emiliano continues to be a little twerp. Lupe's mom wants her to chill out and drink her tea.

Don Chuy is caught on a mysterious mission (is he going to get booze for AS or something)?

At the hospital (AS got put there for drinking), Leo says bye to Diego who has been there with him all night for Leo (what a mensch, she's always been so awful to him). Diego leaves to go teach futbol.

Ahole shows up to try to drive Lupita and Emiliano, presumably to take the kid to school and then just "happen" to discover Mike w/ Mini.

Saul has clearly sold himself out, and he goes whole-hog into a product placement for cellphones so noxious I couldn't even make out what the pretense was. They even play that tinkly commercial music in the background. Uniphone?

Here's the worst thing I saw tonight... Ana Sofia tells her son that she'll only consider getting better and going to AA if he breaks up with the futbolista. SO bad. Yuk yuk yuk.


Anybody who stuck with the show till the end (it must have been midnight or later), please fill us in with what else happened. Thanks!!!!!!!
