La Candidata, 6/7/2017 Chapter 6: Regina Against Corruption

Chapter 6: Regina Against Corruption
 After having blocked Regina’s Vehicle Almiron is at her window where he is informing her that her father has been kidnapped.        
     “talk to Don Omar and you will see that I am telling you the truth, I am sorry I can’t tell you   anything else” he rushes back to his vehicle and Regina gets out of hers, runs to catch up to Almiron.      
     “Almiron, please, please, please don’t leave me like this, please don’t leave me like this” she gets to his vehicle and Almiron is trying to make his point “Instead of wasting time interrogating me, your father’s life is at risk, talk to Don Omar”
Almiron looks extremely distressed and pushes the accelerator and bolts out of there…
Regina runs after Almiron but the effort is futile, with her high heels and well he’s in a car. She returns defeated to her vehicle, where she tries calling her father only to hear that the phone is outside the area or turned off.
Back at the San Roman home, Alonso can’t accept what his mother is telling him.
     “Alonso, look at me, I know what I tell you, someone is in danger, and all I ask is that you talk to your father”
     “My father would never do anything like that”
      “You need to separate yourself from him, don’t lose everything you have accomplished because of him, you will be an accomplice to a murder.”
     “Your father is a Mafioso; your father is a monster”
     “I will talk to him to prove to you that what you are saying is crazy”
      “I don’t know what to tell you, I don’t even know what to think” is the simplest lamest cop out he comes up with and leaves her at the door begging him to stop.

La Candidata Martes, 6/6/17 Chapter 5: Mario is Kidnapped

Sometimes a person gets a major taste of his own medicine and that can be a good thing. It's too bad justice isn't always that on target.
  • D.D.

Chapter Five: Mario is Kidnapped

Mario was dragged into a building by two goons who had placed a black pillow sham over his head so he would not see where he was taken. His hands were tied behind his back, which did not prevent him kicking the metal desk behind him as he protested this treatment, one he would not hesitate to use on others.

La Candidata 6/5/17 Chapter 4: Alonso and Cecelia Will Work Together

• Hugo visits Emiliano to apologize and explains that he only gave the video to “El Colorado,” who then uploaded it without his permission, but Emiliano still thinks that Hugo betrayed him by giving El Colorado the video in the first place. Emiliano blames Hugo all that has happened since he handed over the video and warns him that he can’t tell anyone about what happened outside of Deborah’s apartment or they will die. Hugo confesses that he’s scared but Emiliano suggests he get used to it because he’s also scared and he did nothing wrong. He also reminds Hugo that Florencia is dead because of him and throws him out of his house. Hugo obliges but cries as he does.
• Gerardo reminds Ignacio that a lot of the congressmen in the Senate are there because of him, so they can’t just ask him to resign, but Ignacio reminds him that alliances are based on trust and he has unfortunately lost the trust of a lot of the politicians in his party. Gerardo refuses as he has worked for his party since he was a teenager and made a name of himself, on top of the fact that his records is spotless and he has had no corruption scandal. Ignacio agrees that he is a good asset to the party but he needs to accept that he has lost their good will. Gerardo chooses to fight and Ignacio laments that things have gotten this bad but he already told him what he needs to say. He goes to leave but Gerardo warns Ignacio that the war has just started, and he should let everyone know, before slamming the door in his face.

La Candidata Miercoles, 5/31/17 Chapter 3 Regina Suspects Her Father Has a Lover

Chapter 3 – Regina suspects her father has a lover
  The press surrounds Regina’s car, they are like lions surrounding their prey ready for the kill. Daniela gets into the car and apologizes to Regina she had been trying to call her to let her know to go in thru the back door to avoid the vultures.
Regina asks about Almiro and Daniela confirms he is inside waiting for her. Daniela tells her to “breathe” as she prepares to emerge from the car. As she gets out of her car, the reporters go in for the kill and begin to bombard her with questions about Florencia Oscura.

“What relationship is there between the death of Florencia and the video that has gone viral on the internet?”
“My son is another victim of this unfortunate event, and it worries me like all of these unguarded young women. I will continue to work so this doesn’t happen again”

The mob continues to hound her, not allowing her to get thru when out of nowhere Gerardo appears and comes to the rescue. He takes over answering questions defending Regina. He continues and ends the barrage by stating that the reporters should allow the authorities to continue with the investigation.
Alonso is in another part of town having just completed a press conference and asks his assistant Magda and Pacheco “how did I do?”

Pacheco not holding back says “in my opinion, you should have answered more questions”
“What? So that they could crucify me?”
Magda chimes in and says “next time look directly at the camera, it makes you appear more truthful”
“See that’s a good critique”
As Alonso tries to retreat, a group of reporters catches up to him and complains about not being allowed to ask questions.
“What happened to being transparent?”
“Investigate all you want and you will see that my government is more transparent than water, as far as Florencia Oscura I have nothing else to say”
Pacheco jumps in and says “press conference is over”

La Candidata Martes, 5/30/17 Chapter 2: Cecelia Fears For Her Life

Apples rarely fall far from their trees and we have some proof here. Alonso, Cecelia, and Emiliano all show whose children they are. What they do in a crisis and how they feel about it will be determining factors in their lives. Our tale is full of these unfortunates.
  • D.D.

Chapter Two: Cecelia Fears for her Life

Regina withheld her anger to the best of her ability.
How could you think that I had anything to do with the murder of that girl? Don't you know me? Do you think I could do something like this?”
Your people are involved in this matter. You told me yourself –”
I told you that my people investigated.”
Then therefore you have to learn to give orders. You might say one thing and they hear something else.”
Do you have proof?”
That is in process. I will find out.”

La Candidata Lunes, 5/29/17 Chapter 1: Looking for Guilt


After years of chronicling the lives of the rich and shameless I am still astonished at how similar they are no matter the country or culture. The newly rich like Eladio Gomez-Luna will buy their respectability through the silence and compliance of others. In the end he fell short of becoming another Gerald Bradley because the latter never fooled the set who regarded him as an interloper. In the end – if what I heard about his death was true – he was ultimately unable to fool himself. Since I no longer practice the faith of my upbringing I am done speculating on whether he is in Purgatory or elsewhere.

I have found new examples of the ultimate indulgences of such people. While there is no Coliseum or Circus Maximus in Mexico City the San Románs share some of the vices of certain historical personages echoed by their name. Only modern civil law and my profession have – thus far – held the line against the rise of a new Caligula or Nero. I am a latter-day Suetonius, telling tales of hypocrisy, corruption, and crimes that attempt to defy discovery and go without punishment. I present my tales to you, my elite readers, that you may judge these people for who they are.

Sit back and read at your leisure. At least our wine is better than that which was consumed by the Caesars.

Premios TVyNovelas 2017: Stevey's Follow-up on the Winners and Losers


Hi everybody!! 

I’m sorry that my follow-up for the big TVyNovelas awards show is so late (better late than never!, I hope!), but I did want to do a follow-up for anybody States-side who might be interested as to who was lauded as the best of their bunch this past year.  Without any further ado (and recognizing my own penchant for… uh, ‘loquaciousness’ (to put it kindly, it sounds nicer than ‘eye-strain and migraine inducing…), here we go!!

We’ll start with the biggie…
