Enamorándome de Ramón; Capítulo 35; Friday, September 29, 2017: Francisco gets Dalia’s help to reconcile with Fabiola

We begin where Alfredo left off yesterday:

Julio is at a bar with a patron and tells him that he is having some romantic troubles, as he’s interested in a woman below his social standing. The patron thinks he should go for it regardless, especially if the woman is pretty. Either way, Julio doesn’t need her to give conferences. Julio thinks about this but admits that Juana is intelligent, in her own way, and has a good intuition and instinct; he is sure should could’ve gone far if she could’ve studied. The patron asks him to stop denying his feelings, as he is obviously into this woman, and show her the way to paradise. Julio considers this as a devilish smile crosses his lips.

Then Julio says, “You know what she told me, she told me that she has never been in love.” The drinking buddy responds, “Well then, show her the way to heaven.”

At Luisa’s house, she gets a text message from Benito that says, “Changita, I’m here outside. Please come out so we can talk.” To that, Luisa responds a very firm, “NO!” Benito then says in his next text message that he can stay there all night like a night watchman until she comes out. Luisa responds by saying, “I already told you no! I’m going to go to sleep now.” Not daunted by Luisa’s refusals, he has another plan. He crouches down by the front brick wall and starts making very annoying noises that sound like a cat in heat.

Weekend Discussion 9/29/17: Toxic Sisters


I've often said that series villains are far more effective when they are related to the protagonists and between members of the same generation there is nothing like sisters of similar age, whether the issue is over the hero or an inheritance. If women had been on the stage in Shakespeare's time he would have created toxic ones too, because the emotional stakes would have still been higher than those he was able to express between brothers. 

Here is a list of evil sisters for your consideration:

Enamorandome de Ramon #34 9.28.17: Party Poopers and Secret Smiles

As Fabiola and Andrea hug Juana, happy to have her back, Luisa comes out of the kitchen and goes to answer the door. It’s Jorge and Ramon, who come in with big smiles on their face, and yell: “surprise!” The Medina sisters tease them about knowing Juana was back and not telling them but Ramon proposes a toast to celebrate Juana’s return and the fact that that Ramon can now visit them too. Ramon pops open a bottle of champagne and everyone cheers.

In her apartment, Hortensia hears the commotion and calls Benito to ask what the hoopla is about. Benito explains that there is a party in the sister’s apartment to celebrate Juana’s return. He asks if she would like him to ask them to keep it down but Hortensia shakes her head and hangs up. She thinks they should come thank her for lifting the restraining order but instead they throw Juana a party.

Virginia also calls Benito and asks him tot ell the neighbors to keep it down. After a moment she hangs up and assumes Julio must also be at the party to celebrate Juana’s return.

Enamorandome de Ramon #33 9.27.17: Love Potions & Hairbrush DNA

Fabiola tells everyone at the table that Ramon sends them greetings but Julio is surprised that she is talking about Juana’s son. Fabiola nods and reveals that they are in a relationship but Julio thinks Ramon is taking advantage of the situation, though he doesn’t tell Fabiola this. Instead, he confesses that it is unexpected but everyone is free to do with their lives as they wish. Fabiola apologizes for not telling him soon but Julio shakes his head. Juana explains that she also found out by surprise, as they didn’t want to tell anyone, but Fabiola announces that now everyone knows except Hortensia, as the Medina sisters have not seen her, and have no desire to see her, since everything with Juana happened. Fabiola then inquiries about Hortensia’s health, as they told her she wasn’t feeling too well, but Julio hopes everything will be okay. Julio then tells them that he has to go and Juana asks him not to worry as they will take a taxi back one. Once alone, Juana asks the sisters how they feel and they jump at the chance to hug and kiss Juana while telling her that they are extremely happy.

Enamorandome De Ramon, #32, 9/26/17: Juana finally gets the money, and let's the little piggies breath.


Repeated scene:

Ramon and Fabi are having lunch after having made up. Ramon is talking about going out on a date and Fabi does not answer very enthusiastically. Ramon catches on and asks Fabi if something is wrong.  Fabiola tells him she’s upset because Ramon hides things from her.

New Scene:

Fabiola tells Ramon that she found out that he was Dalia’s super hero when he went to save her from Rulo. And he even broke Rulo’s nose. “Why do you hide that from me?” “I did not hide it from you; I just did not think it was important”. “Well Dalia thought it was very important and the truth is that it made me jealous”. Fabi then tells Ramon that she does not want him to see Dalia anymore, "capiche".  Well “morrita” (pretty girl - urban dictionary) he tells her, that’s kind of impossible since he lives with her, and they work together, but don’t you worry your pretty head Monchi has got this under control. She is just like family to Ramon; they have known each other since they were kids, and Dalia is just that like family. Then Ramon tells Fabi “I have no eyes for anyone but you”. Well Fabi was jealous, but Ramon understands because he was jealous too and that made him act like an idiot, so please forgive me he says.

However, Fabi lets him know that these are her feelings about Ramón. He says, “Well, whatever you want.” Then he turns around to go out the door and runs right into Ramón who is also bringing roses to Fabi.

Mi marido tiene familia Monday 9/18/17 Capítulo 20: The Pressure is On

We pick up our story . . .

with Blanca (who is going to be the best mother-in-law in the world) getting Daniela, Linda, and Marisol (and even Frida) to go along with her in her plan to treat Julieta so well that they will convince her she can be happy with the family and will not want to move to the USA.

Tulio isn't letting the topic drop with Ana. Now that Juan Pablo has appeared, he wants to know what happened that whole year when Juan Pablo got lost. Ana changed that year for good. What happened to the woman he fell in love with? Ana explains how she was feeling way back then: she was so miserable because she could not live up to the family's expectations when she found out she could not have any children. Tulio says she knew he loved her. Yes, but she knew that he loved his family, too, and she knew how important their opinion was.

At breakfast, Blanca's plan has been put into effect. Blanca is laying it on nice and thick. For breakfast, Blanca has included some "light options" so Julieta can keep that stunning figure she has. As a matter of fact, this morning Blanca is feeling closer to Julieta than she does to her own daughters. Julieta is so cute and charming she is just stealing her heart away. Julieta is all smiles. At Blanca's prompting, Linda tells Julieta she will be replacing her purse that was damaged by the paint. Julieta can hardly believe what she is hearing and tells them that they don't need to. Blanca kicks Marisol under the table so she can put in her two cents about how replacing the purse will clear up any differences and she will see they are not a strange or crazy family. They all chant (led by Frida) that their family is the very best, so very perfect. Julieta thanks them. Blanca says she will learn to love them all very quickly. Audifaz has knowingly been observing it all.

Here is the recap, courtesy of RGVChick:

And in the beginning…Rulo takes advantage that Dalia is dead drunk and says “Make me yours,” but is interrupted by Ramón who has come to save the skank from the scum. Ramón keeps yelling, and Dalia comes to her senses (somewhat). When Dalia staggers over and opens the door, Ramón chides her for the way she looks. Rulo tries to stop Ramón from taking Dalia, but is sent flying to the bed when Ramón slam his fist up his nose and breaks it. Ramon continues to scold Dalia as they leave, but she wants to know what’s wrong with him…it’s not as if he’s her father. Juana calls to ask about Dalia so Ramón covers for Dalia and tells her they are there at the billiard and will stay a while longer. Ramón thinks about what he should do with her now. Meanwhile, Rulo calls Chava and asks him for help going to the hospital because his nose got broken (too bad something else didn’t get broken).

Enamorándome de Ramón, Capítulo 27; Friday September 15, 2017; Antonio warns Juana about Julio


We begin where we left off yesterday in episode 26, with Roxana and Antonio at the place that looks like McDonald’s with Diego. Antonio tries to have a talk with Diego about his behavior. He asks why he decided to hit the other child and Diego says it was because the other child took his crayons. But Diego does not want to pay much attention to his father and acts like he’s being bothered. He wants to go play. As soon as he goes to the play area, Roxana and Antonio start arguing again, making accusations toward each other and blaming each other for Diego’s behavior and problems. “You’re not going to take my son away from me!” “No, you aren’t going to take my son out of the country”… “Over my dead body!”…and on and on. Roxana gets up to use the ladies room, but leaves her cell phone at the table. It rings and Antonio answers it. On the other end, it’s Agustín who is calling to talk to Roxana. Antonio tells him, “Sorry, Roxana is not available right now. We have taken OUR son out for hamburgers. I’ll tell her you called, don’t worry.” Roxana comes back and wants to know why Antonio is laughing. But then his phone rings and it’s some business that Antonio is putting off for the following day. Roxana then says, “If you have to go, then just leave!” Antonio looks at her and says, “Oh no, not for anything! So tell me about Miami….”

Mi marido tiene familia Monday 9/11/17 Capítulo 15: Eugenio Has Good News

The episode starts off with a guitar playing a waltz that sounds like "La zandunga" which just happens to be from the state of Oaxaca where the novela takes place. On to the action!

Blanca's home--Ana comes to see Blanca and she is not doing well at all. Blanca asks if she is ill. No, she just has not been able to sleep because she is so afraid and feels so alone. Blanca notes that Ana is a woman that has practically everything. Ana disagrees: she has nothing. She has things but they cannot give her love. Her life has been hell. She feels so empty and that is what has caused her to commit so many mistakes. Blanca asks her what mistakes is she talking about. Ana has always been so angry not being able to have children Blanca knows how difficult that has been but Ana always has them to count on. Ana just thinks she is a miserable person. Blanca tells her how pretty, tender, kind she is and how she deserves so many good things. Ana disagrees telling Blanca she is much worse than she could even imagine. Ana relives in her mind taking Juan Pablo to the orphanage and just leaving him there telling the orphanage personnel she just couldn't keep him with her. Blanca tells her to just let it all out. She reassures Ana that she is her friend. Ana has always supported her. Does Ana think that Blanca would still be there if Ana had not been there for her? Ana tells her how good she is. Blanca says she is good, too, and that her husband does not deserve not even one her tears. At the end of the conversation, Blanca mentions Eugenio who won't even tell her why he is so nervous.

Enamorándome de Ramón, #23, Sept. 11, 2017: The Raving Conscience of a Witch and a Snoop

Today's recap comes courtesy of RGV Chick. Thank you for your hard work!

Andrea and Jorge finish watching the video and are excited that it explains everything—from naming Juana the beneficiary to why the signature was so different. Andrea can’t wait to see her grandmother eat her words; and Jorge can’t wait to see his grandmother’s face when she see the video. Andrea wonders if the video will be sufficient to claim the insurance money and thinks it will at least serve to restore Juana’s honor. When they discuss who they should show it to first, they agree on Don Pedro, but when Jorge tries to call him, he doesn’t answer.

Suddenly, they hear HorHellia banging on the door and yelling at them to open it. In a panic, Jorge quickly takes the cassette out of the camera before they go open the door. HorHellia comes in with Virginia demanding to know where Fabiola is. When Jorge asks what’s going on, Virginia tells Jorge not to butt in and pulls him to leave; he drops the cassette, but quickly picks it up. They both leave Andrea to deal with the grandma from hell on her own. HorHellia demands to know what Jorge was doing there, but gets frustrated when Andrea doesn’t respond. HorHellia insists on staying there until Fabiola arrives then thinks Fabiola is with “that” mechanic and is appalled at how low this family has gone.

Enamorándome de Ramón #22; Friday September 8, 2017; Fabiola and Ramón become “Novios” (boyfriend/girlfriend) or The Truth Comes Out!

Andrea falls asleep with the home video on. At first what is on is another family party, but then it appears that Katy and Ricardo accidently left their video camera on record while they were discussing the life insurance policy. They go through the list of family whom they might consider being the beneficiary. The idea of Hortensia gets thrown out immediately by Ricardo because she doesn’t get along with their daughters plus is so controlling. So they both agree on Juana being the beneficiary of the insurance policy. They agreed that when the girls were old enough, they would change it to their daughters’ names. But anyway, they decided that they would not die. Ricardo signs his name, but makes a mistake on his signature. Katy says it’s good enough because to write over it would make it worse and that was it. Unfortunately Andrea slept through the whole thing!

La candidata Friday 9/8/17 Capítulo 61 Gran Final Parte 2 : The End----OR: A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Well, I have come full circle. When I heard that Caray was going to cover "La candidata" I watched the very last episode. The final scene of the last episode is what made me want to recap this novela. So, I am coming back to where I began and a very fine ride it has been.

Thank you to Urban, Alfredo, Anita, Cynthia, and Sandie for being a great recapping team to work with as well as all of the commenters and readers who stopped on by. All of you made this so much fun.

Campaign appearance--Regina's appearance is being held in front of the Monument to the Revolution. Regina arrives to the chants and cheers of the crowd. Escalante is there, too, when he gets a phone call from a very angry Gerardo shouting that he wants to see him. It is urgent. Escalante tells him he can't come because he is at an event. Gerardo demands to know with who. A drug trafficker? Who? Ignacio shouts at Gerardo to stop. Escalante's mood has changed and he surmises that Gerardo wants to play hardball. Gerardo better hope that nobody has listened to him so he doesn't have to suffer the consequences. Gerardo isn't afraid of Escalante's threats. Escalante calls him a fool and clarifies the situation: he does not threaten, he acts. Gerardo will see. Escalante hangs up.

Today is my recap day but I haven't been able to see Ramon this week because of Irma. I am sorry to do this but I just haven't been able to concentrate on the recaps. SANDIE was kind enough to provide a summary for you guys.

Thank you so much, Sandie! I greatly appreciate your help with this. Be safe everyone and talk soon :)

La Candidata, Capítulo 61; Thursday September 7, 2017: Grande Finale, Part 1

Previously, the last thing we heard at Casa Barcenas was a single gunshot and sirens in the background before the scene faded to dark. This episode begins with the SWAT team everywhere, reporters abound, and chaos seems to ensue. The only inside shot we see is what appears to be Noemi sitting on the floor with blood on her abdomen. Reporters do not know who has been shot. Was it Regina? Who? We see Cecelia coming through trying to find out what happened, but the police are not letting her through. We see a gurney being taken to a waiting ambulance. Finally we see Noemi walk out escorted by a paramedic. Finally, we see Regina walk out. Both appear shaken, have blood splatter, but safe and unharmed. Cecelia looks at Regina, closes her eyes as they tear up.

Upcoming Telenovelas: Stevey's Notes (Pt. III) – September 7, 2017

PART III – TELENOVELAS FARTHER OFF INTO THE FUTURE
 
PRODUCTION #9 - Nicandro Diaz, fresh from El Bienamado is apparently going to be doing a remake of famous telenovela from Colombia, Las Juanas, so named because it's a story about four women all named "Juana-(something)" à la Anas in TVA.
 
PRODUCTION #10 – José Alberto 'El Guero' Castro, who should be ashamed of himself for how little he did with a good story, great cast, and terrific setting in Vino el Amor, is hoping to try his luck with one of my favorite types of stories, that with an 'antagonist-protagonist' (think Teresa or Rubí but more evil).  The three classics he submitted to Lord High Ocampo were, apparently, La Sonrisa del Diablo, La Mujer de Judas, and, my favorite, El Angel Caido.  BUT... apparently she was having none of it, and told him that his last remakes have been, well, porquerias and fracasos and that he'd better find an original story to do, or he's off to the freezer to join Emilio Larrosa. So we'll have to wait and see what he comes up with.

La Candidata 9/6/17 Chapter 60: One, two, three, four deaths? And the resurrection of a Narco or Cecilia finds that all doors are now closed!



Thank you Urban for allowing me to be part of this recapping team. I feel a little sad that this TN is coming to an end but am completely thrilled with the fact that I got such an amazing episode. Also thank you to everyone who visited us on this patio, and a special thanks to Jarifa, Alfredo, Cynthia, Urban (again) and Anita for your amazing  contibutions to this Blog and La Candidata Recaps.

And now on to the recap......


Alonso chiding Emiliano, tells him

“Are you going to run to tell your mother so she can ruin your life, when it’s just beginning? “

“You have two options go to mommy or let me help you to get rid of this problem” (referring to Ximena’s pregnancy)

In his office Escalante sends goons to go get Lorena Sanchez, she is being held in her apartment.

Mario tries to convince Regina not to turn him in, he uses guilt.

Regina tells him “You think I wanted this situation, you leave me no options” to which he replies

“let me talk, you want the truth, then let me talk, you were born in gold crib, but I built that crib., when you are privileged you are able to talk about morals quite easily, but not me I was born in the worst of neighborhoods, where pain and violence live everyday with you, that is how my brother died, he was very sick he could not get a surgery because of lack of money.  My friends and I were always sick, because there was no potable water, no food.”

Upcoming Telenovelas: Stevey's Notes (Pt. IIB) – September 6, 2017

PART IIB – TELENOVELAS IN THE NEAR FUTURE
Here we go with the rest of the telenovelas that are now in production.

PRODUCTION #6 – ME DECLARO CULPABLE   PRODUCER: ANGELLI NESMA MEDINA
**No broadcast date for Mexico announced yet, but in production.**
I'm excited about THIS story!! The name 'Univision' is already being associated with this production (i.e. a 'Televisa/Univision' production). You guys might be surprised to hear there is one country that isn't Brazil (or, of course, Mexico) that has produced some really terrific novelas, most especially in the new millennium. Indeed the number of productions that have been produced in Mexico that were actually remakes of Argentinian originals is really quite staggering, including some that I think a lot of people would consider so intrinsically Mexican so as to be a part of the culture and country (Simplemente Maria is the one that comes most immediately to mind), as well as some very prominent or popular novelas from closer to our time (such as Amores Verdaderos, Alma de Hierro, Rebelde, Muchacha Italiana Viene a Casarse, Una Familia con Suerte, Un Gancho al Corazon, and I could go on).  This decade, especially, I don't know how or why, but Argentina has come out with telenovelas that are absolutely Awesome (you'll please note that's capital “A'' awesome), and a true credit to the genre. Giselle Gonzalez's next project is a remake of a recent Argentinian telenovela and so is this one of Angelli Nesma Medina.

Enamorandome De Ramon, 9/6/17 Chapter 20: Hortensia the Horrible Hatches new plan to get rid of Ramon


Repeated scene: Luisa and Juana are talking about the trouble it would bring to them if the witch AKA Hortensia found out that Juana and Fabi were dating, if they were dating. Nosy Dalia is listening when she hears Juana say that if it was between Fabi and Dalia she would prefer Dalia (fewer problems). Dalia thanks her lucky stars.


 New Scenes: Dalia does not hear when Juana says if she had no choice Dalia would be it, but the best would be for Juan to find someone completely different. She says that if Dalia and Juan got together and they had problems their friendship (Luisa and Juana’s) would suffer. They agree to try to avoid having problems in that case.

La Candidata Martes 9/5/17 Chapter 59: Confrontation


Chapter 59: Confrontation

Confrontation is something many people fear and avoid. Usually it accomplishes more than it destroys but there are many who are destroyed not by what they discover about others but about what they discover about themselves. This is what many people in power truly fear because there is often no worse exposure than the one to oneself.

Mauro called for an ambulance and an emergency medical team. He was almost in a state of panic.

Upcoming Telenovelas: Stevey's Notes (Pt. IIA) – September 5, 2017

PART IIA – UPCOMING TELENOVELAS NEARLY HERE (OR ALREADY HERE)
Let's hope for the best for the future of our telenovela world. Without further ado, let's let Stevey get to the productions themselves! Now, again, these are all TELEVISA productions. Which of these will actually get broadcast in the U.S. or when, is anybody's guess, but if he has ANY further information as to “yea” or “nay,” he will make sure to note it in his summaries. Here he goes!  :-)
 
PRODUCTION #1 – MI MARIDO TIENE FAMILIA   PRODUCER: JUAN OSORIO
**Mexican debut was on June 5, 2017.** Currently broadcasting on Univision, but I had this written before it started airing, so please indulge me, okay?
First off, I have to confess that I can't stand Juan Osorio. I think he's a megalomaniacal idiot living off of his past successes, who patronizes his viewing audience more than he does anything else by not offering anything of any depth or real quality, just his dancing spawn Emilio (the product of his liaison with the BSC Niurka Marcos, a woman who had her own talk show where she interviewed her guests in a hot tub, and whose general classlessness is almost impressive in its absoluteness—and who appeared as herself in Mi Corazon es Tuyo), ad nauseam (you'll have to forgive me here as I deplore nepotism). In talks about his next production, the currently airing Mi Marido Tiene Familia, Osorio went off on this screed about the genre and the deplorable direction that telenovelas were going. He decried productions in the vein of La Piloto and, well, pretty much anything that Telemundo is airing, really, for being all about drugs, violence, random killings, and generally speaking, not-nice things, CERTAINLY NOT what should be on television during “family hour.” He said HIS production was designed to take the genre back to where he (being all-knowing, life-giving, all-powerful, and all that stuff) feels it should belong, and away from things like gratuitous S&M scenes and torture (as was depicted recently in Sueño de Amor, produced by…uh…oh…wait for it…YOU, Sr. Osorio…hypocrite much?).

Mi marido tiene familia Monday 9/4/17 Capítulo 10: Too Much Tequila


The bar: Blanca and her sisters Belén and Linda continue their tequila shots. They are all tipsy at this point especially Blanca. Blanca is is telling the story of what happened at the marketplace so many years ago. The pain was so bad that she didn't know when she left her little boy go. She kept calling for him as strangers took her to the hospital. She accepts that what happened was her and her son's destiny. Yes, destiny can be that cruel. Blanca thinks back again to the hospital how after her baby was born she was still asking for her son. She struggled to leave her hospital room to go looking for her Juan Pablo or at least to find a phone but the nurses held her back. After all this time, Blanca still feels so responsible even though her sisters remind her that she fainted in the middle of it all. Her sisters say she was not guilty of anything. Blanca is now sobbing. Amalia thinks it is time to ask for the check. Belén orders another bottle instead and yes! she will pay for it. Belén asks Blanca about maybe having a symbolic type of funeral with a gravesite at the cemetery so she could visit Juan Pablo. That just starts a drunk Blanca sobbing again but then she agrees slurringly that at least she would have a place to go and cry. After making another toast Blanca decides they should all sing. She needs to sing and smile but then she starts sobbing. She imitates her dance instructor laughs, sobs and has another shot. The sisters start to sing.

Imelda's house--Imelda is on the phone with Ana who stopped by to see her earlier but she wasn't in. Ana tells her that Tulio her son is at home. Does Imelda want to talk to him? Imelda insists on going over to Ana's to see Tulio. She wants Ana to send her driver for her and not tell her son she is coming. She wants to see if he will even remember who she is. Ana asks if she is sure. Imelda says she can always take a taxi. Ana looks upset.

Enamorándome de Ramón, #19, Sept. 4, 2017: The Kiss That Almost Was

Here is the recap, courtesy of RGVChick:

Some scenes combined for continuity

[Previously: As Ramón approaches, Fabiola runs to him and gives him a big hug, but he stands firm with a serious look. Fabiola’s mood turns somber when Ramón confides that he has come to resign from his job.] Despite Fabiola’s efforts to convince him that he needs to stay because she already lost Juana and doesn’t want to lose him too, Ramón is adamant that he must leave his job for fear of causing more problems…and his mother asked him to. There have been too many problems and they know Hortensia won’t let up. Fabiola fears that Juana won’t see her either and thinks it unfair. She is disappointed that they’re giving up. Even though Fabiola asks him not to leave if he cares for her, Ramón is still apprehensive about the possibility that Hortensia will show up at the shop and have him sent to jail. When Fabiola sees that Ramón is not budging, she pleads with him to stay because they will be down a mechanic and he will be hard to replace. This makes Ramón wonder if it’s Fabiola or the “owner” who is asking him to stay, but Fabiola assures him it is both; nevertheless, Ramón says “no” to both and walks off to go talk to Antonio. Refusing to be defeated, Fabiola quickly texts Antonio warning him that Ramón wants to leave and asks him to please not let Ramón go.

La Candidata 9.4.17 Chapter 58: Who Will Survive and What Will Become of Them?

Hey all! This is my final recap for this novela and I wanted to say a few words to those who were with us every step of the way.

First, I’d like to thank my fellow recappers, Sandie, Cynthia, Anita, Jarifa, and our leader, Urban. You are all amazing and talented people and our team was stronger for it. We battled some crazy scheduling (I couldn’t have remained sane without your help) but we came out stronger on the other side.

To our faithful commentors, SpanProf, Lynette, Loriloo, Steve, and many others, I thank you for taking the time to leave behind words of encouragement for now and the future about this twisty tale. It’s you guys we do this for and it’s a gift to have found so many kind people to share it with.

Please know that this patio was very special to me and I hope to see all of your again very soon (hopefully another Giselle Gonzalez production) 

_________________________________________________________________________________
Regina now knows that Noemi was telling the truth and Cecelia is, in fact, her sister but Cecelia tells her that Noemi barely knows 10% of the truth. Gerardo tells Regina that he came to tell her this but Cecelia stops him because only she can tell Regina the truth. Cecelia confesses that she has known Regina is her sister, her whole life, and she feels relieved because she finally told her the truth. Regina reminds her that she slept with Alonso and Emiliano, whilst knowing she was her sister, but Cecelia explains that she was able to do it because she hates her. In fact, she reminds herself how much she hates Regina and that has given her the strength to do what she has done and she can do a lot more. Regina asks her to leave but Cecelia refuses and tells Regina that she is not better than her because they are sisters and that means they are the same, no matter how much she denies it. Gerardo tries to get Cecelia to leave and screams for Daniela to call a doctor, as Cecelia doesn’t look well, but Cecelia announces that she’s good and they aren’t calling anyone. She stands in front of the door and blocks their way.

Upcoming Telenovelas: Stevey Weighs In (Pt.I) - September 3, 2017

This Post comes from our beloved commentator Stevey, observer of all things telenovela, which fits right into all things CarayCaray. His discourse will be posted in three parts over several days: Part I—Behind the Scenes at Televisa (a must read, in my opinion); Part II—Upcoming Telenovelas (some sooner than you think); Part III—Telenovelas Farther Off in the Future (or never). Be advised the opinions expressed in this post are entirely Stevey’s and not necessarily those of the CarayCaray blog.
 
Note of caution: some of the narrative in Part II especially, contains information that could be considered spoilers, so use caution if you don’t want to read too far ahead (Anita has marked tell-tale storylines with a à.)

PART I - BEHIND THE SCENES AT TELEVISA
 
Hi everybody! First off, I'm SO sorry that this has been so unconscionably late in getting to you all (Stupid life! Slow DOWN a bit now and then, will ya??), but I really never DID forget about you, and I've actually been working on this for quite some time now (as you will, undoubtedly see), both as a result of my own loquaciousness (read: long-windedness, not knowing when to stop or shut up, etc.), as well as the fact that these situations are always constantly evolving, or at least changing. I also always want to make sure as much as I can, that anything I put out there for you guys is actually a verified FACT (no 'Fake News' here!), HOPEFULLY by contacts within the network, but if not, through viable sources, and this sometimes isn't always that easy to come by. There's actually been all kinds of network drama going on over at Televisa in regards to telenovelas, an inordinate amount, really…lots of unhappy actors, and a lot of producers gnashing their teeth and clutching their 'stress balls' more tightly than usual.  But I hope you'll enjoy what I've got for you all.

 

(Note: For anyone not interested in these things, wait for Part II – Upcoming Telenovelas, where I actually talk about the upcoming telenovelas.)

La candidata Friday 9/1/17 Capítulo 57: Mario Asks Cecilia for Help--OR-- El Cuervo Has a Good Laugh--OR--El Chulo Is Not Just Another Pretty Face

A deserted alley--El Chulo asks if Alonso wants it all to end like this. He doesn't understand why Alonso thinks he is betraying him. Alonso makes money from his businesses. Alonso is angry that Gerardo is about to get out of jail. Somebody, and he doesn't know who, made a move. El Chulo swears it wasn't him. So, who did? El Chulo doesn't know and doesn't want to know. He is interested in making money and not politics. He tells Alonso that he can ask Escalante to verify that fact. Alonso asks what Escalante has to do with this. El Chulo smirks and states that Escalante is behind the finances and reminds him that Escalante is the public face of his money laundering business. Alonso concludes that Escalante is behind it all. El Chulo says he always has been. El Chulo quickly pulls his pistol and asks if they are going to get back to business or what. Alonso gives the sign and all the weapons are lowered and put away. The stand-off is over. El Chulo is still smirking.

Gerardo's Jail Cell--El Cuervo is giving Gerardo his money's worth filling him in on Mario and his prostitution/extortion business. Mario has an associate: Isela owns a cabaret where the girls come from. El Cuervo worked for them. Gerardo adds that Mrs. Barcenas discovered that he was selling protection to them. Yes, but he didn't end up with much money because it is an organization and the money ended up getting divided up just like here in the jail. El Cuervo has something to confess. Before killing Pacheco, he had information that if sold to him was going to make him a millionaire. The information was about Mario's dirty businesses with the most important fact being that Mario was Cecilia's father and Isela her mother.

La Candidata, Thursday 8/31/17 Chapter 56: Regina Learns She Has a Sister and Who She Is

Repasando lo de ayer
In his office, Alonso learns from Magda of Omar’s accident. She promises to call the hospital for an update. Marcia runs in, breathless, to tell Al she knows exactly what happened to Don Omar. Magda leaves them. Mario arrives at the government offices and also wants to see Alonso, but Mauro stops him since he is busy with one of Mario’s “girls.” Mario is startled that Mauro knows about his prostitution ring. They start a game of one-upmanship daring each to reveal the other’s secrets to Alonso—especially the one about Cecelia being Mario’s daughter and the other about Mauro’s sexual preference. Mario backs down as Mauro urges them to go tell Alonso right then and there.
 
At the prison hospital, a hand passes money to a guard and some prisoner passes in to stand by a sleeping Gerardo. It’s El Cuervo, the dirty policeman who shot Pacheco (who later died).
 
Noemi is ready to tell Regina the truth about her father’s other family, one he’s had for a long time. Regina chalks it up to her being soused.
 
Recontando lo de hoy
Alonso’s Office – Marcia declares that Natalia pushed Omar down the stairs. Alonso doesn’t buy her story. He says right to her face that just because they had a couple of rolls in the hay she’s to be believed? How could she be that stupid, she’s nothing but trash. He tells her to disappear. She claims she was only trying to help Omar through the betrayal by Alonso’s mother. Al’s ire rises at the mention of his mother and would probably have strangled Marcia if Cecelia hadn’t interrupted. Al tells Cece to get her out of there and maybe get her a job at their mother’s cabaret. Marcia screams in defiance, but Cece drags her out.
