Mi corazon es tuyo, Capitulo 29*, Thursday – 08/28/2014 - Sushi and champagne make for a great expecting mother

(*I think that somewhere along the lines we made a mistake while adding up the episodes, because this is now episode 29 and yesterday should have been 28)

Back to last night’s ending: Nico asks Ana to speak to Jennifer, since they did meet at the hospital, after all. Maybe they can become friends and Ana can convince Jen to come to the party. Ana agrees to help and gives Don Nico a hug, just as Diego walks in. He tries to insinuate that there is something going on between the two, but Ana is quick to set things straight. Diego doesn’t fight it, he knows that Ana has something going on with Fer, not with his father. Again, Ana denies everything, although Nico does mumble that something did happen between them in the past. Ana has had it with both of them, though, so she leaves, after asking Don Nico to keep mum. Which will be very hard, since Diego wants to know the whole truth.
Viewerville observes how Diego might now get the chance to do onto others what others have done onto him – to want thy brother’s woman must be a Lascurain habit.

De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero #166, 8/28/2014

De Que Ellas Son Rehenes, Son Rehenes o De Que No Hay Pila, No Hay Pila

All, it’s been my great pleasure recapping for you all. I’m glad Kat started us on this road. For the most part, it has been delightful. I especially want to thank my fellow recappers, and this fantastic group of commenters! Now, on to the recap!

Rod has taken both Natalia and Brigitte as his hostages (rehenes) at gunpoint, and left El and his team unarmed and handcuffed to the stair railings. He’s ordered that a squad car be left running for him. He smacks Nat unconscious in the back seat, and orders Brigitte to sit next to him in the front. Brigitte begs him to let HER go, and to think of their child. He tells her he couldn’t care less (me importa un comino) about her and the baby. Plus, she betrayed him! She swears she didn’t betray him. He doesn’t believe it

Nat wakes up, assesses the situation, and decides to play hero(ine). She puts a choke hold on Rod, causing him to swerve and then stop the car. He breaks free of her hold and threatens to pistol whip her again. He orders them both to the floor of the back seat, and threatens to shoot them if they cause any more trouble. They both cower on the floor, and Nat cradles Brigitte protectively. Nat finds her cell phone and stealthily makes a call.

El and his team are free and El calls Captain Vermudez. The captain is NOT pleased and won’t even allow El to go inform Carmen in person that her two daughters have been taken hostage by a lunatic. El goes anyway, and breaks the terrible news to Carmen with a hug, while Mushroom listens sadly. Carmen is inconsolable and demands that El return her daughters to her!

-Alexa kissed Armie on the cheek.
 
 

 

La Malquerida #3: 8/27/14: A Jump In Time!

Hola Amiguis. Finally we have a leap in time! We are still in the past for the first little bit, but it gets better. I Keep Holding On  here is a little ear worm for Y'all.

Shall we begin?

We left off yesterday with Esteban declaring his love for Cris and he'd like to marry her. Cris wants to marry him, but wants Acacia to accept him. For now it is enough for him to be close to Cris and Cris doesn't have to promise him anything.

Esteban attempts to get Acacia to go to work with him. Of course, she doesn't want to go with him. Cris says she'll talk to her, but Esteban tells Cris to let her be, she's a child and he goes off to work.

De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero #165 - Wed 8/27

De que casi todos tomaron malas decisiones, tomaron malas decisiones!

In the lawyer's office, Diego explains to Nat that he's owed her the divorce for a while and hands her the papers.  I believe cake is also customary…no?

Eleazar downs a glass of champagne in an effort to exorcise the ghosts of Carmen's past enamorados.  Carmen declares she's alllll his and after some steamy smooches, retreats to the bathroom to get…ahem…more comfortable.  Unfortunately, El is still having auditory hallucinations of the exes in question and starts checking the room for them.  Carmen, in a gorgeous purple negligee set gets El back on track.  They fall to the bed and I seriously hope the audible commentary from Los Ex playing in the background while the animated hearts float by was only for us and not playing in El's head.

The lawyer explains that since they were both in agreement to divorce in the first place, all they have to do is sign.  Natalia refuses to sign and walks out.  Hey, now, I'm SURE there's a mandatory declaration of "No te voy a dar el divorcio!" (I'm not going to give you a divorce) that's supposed to go with that.

Mi corazon es tuyo, #27, 27 Aug 2014... Diego is home!! and instantly gets smitten by Ana... Fanny and Leon have their heavenly hash and Leon gets a sour after taste...

Fer and Nando in the car…


“When you are really really in love, you have no control… and besides that, you give it all… all.”

Ana finds out tomorrow will be the engagement party.

Lo Nuevo…

Ana in the kids room with homework…

Ana sees the drawing of the witch at the kids room… Seba tells Ana Isa even shot (or pushed) darts at her own drawing. They found it funny, Ana not so much. Ana will help them all with homework but first we have to talk. Tomorrow your dad will ask for Isa’s hand… She explains that Fer has to ask permission to Isa’s mom to marry Isa. What about if she does not give permission? That won’t happen… Alicia says she will stay in her room… Ana says you all have to be there, be well dressed and be well behaved. The twins suggest painting Isa… Ana says no pranks allowed.

Isa and MIL at the store with the urge to shop and spend…

Isa and her mom have been shopping for their dresses for the party… first is first and second is second… Isa mocks her mother’s logic. MIL asks the saleslady if they don’t have something more revealing, more provocative. MIL wonders what the engagement ring will look like.

Fer in the library with the engagement ring…

Ana comes in Fer’s library, he is holding the engagement ring. He puts it away. He wanted to talk to her. Fer wanted to tell Ana about tomorrow… already know… it shows you can’t hold any secrets here. Fer asks Ana to talk to the kids about the engagement party… Ana says already did with the small ones. Ana asks permission for her to go out for a while, he asks where… she just responds its personal, I will leave the kids eaten and in bed… what if I had a problem with it? … I would still go… (she leaves, he repeats to himself… ‘something personal’.)

Two filthy jerks in the Chicago office with the debt
Teofilo is arguing with Johnny, its good but it could go better… Johnny wants his money back… Teo is ok but will talk to his accountant before giving his money back… But warns Johnny he will deduct what Johnny owes him.

Ana is on the stage and Jenny has another pain… Ana is done… Johnny comes out and tells Jenny he is the loser… (Univ cut out what Jenny told him…)

Ana in the driveway with the tree branch…

Ana arrives at the house in taxi… runs into Diego who just arrived in his motorcycle… She does not know who that is so she grabs a tree branch and tries to hit him on the head… he blocks her swing… They stare at each other… (until end of beginning credits after comm…. So they had to freeze for quite a while).
Ana mistakes Diego for a burglar… he says he has been called many things, usually handsome, charming… but never a burglar… she threatens she will put him in jail… been there, done that too. But never for burglary… She asks if he is mocking her. He says he is only avoiding getting his head busted open. After some more back and forth insulting and calling names, he is trying to introduce himself ‘my name is Diego… what’s yours?... is it perhaps Isabella?’ Ana takes even more offense in that. He wants a hint so she tells him three letters… beginning with A… he guesses Ana. … Well, glad to meet you, I am Diego Lascurain’. Ana is shocked, takes his helmet off to take a better look… sighs… then she reacts and changes attitude to ‘servant’… even tries to help him roll his bike in…

Mi corazon es tuyo Tuesday 08/26/14 Time Warner blows

Please feel free to discuss the episode, I got a text from my sister yesterday saying that our cable and internet were not working, I've had issues with TWC in the last few weeks-after I asked them for a lower rate. Well, I get home last night and call them, it seems that the rep I spoke with a few weeks ago was able to lower my rate-by cancelling my DVR service and my internet and making my account a basic one.

After arguing with customer service last night I finally gave up and have to call them again this morning. My apologies for all this, I had no way of watching the episode and am beyond angry that not only was I unable to get a recap up but that a company I've worked with for years basically called me a liar and said the conversation I had with their rep did not happen the way I represented it. This blows.

La Malquerida #2: 8/26/14: The Fight is On To Save the Hacienda. Love is in the Air

Hola Amiguis! Tonight I'm doing a shorter recap. I had trouble with this one because of the whiplash scene changes and rapid fire speech. I think I got most it it. I've got another earworm Where Does My Heart Beat Now?

Shall we begin?

We left off last night with Esteban asking Cristina not to sell the Hacienda. He loves these lands and will do everything he can to help her save this Hacienda.

Juliana and her son her in his room, and I have to say this son has a talent. He's painted some beautiful Irises I think. Norberto storms in and isn't having it. He feels this is effeminate of this son, and takes a knife and destroys the picture. Juliana tries to stop him to no avail. He tells his son, be a man and go work the land. He goes.

Hasta El Fin del Mundo #7 20140826 Fashion Advice from a Guy Wearing a Mullet...Really?


Ripoll:  While Sofie sits in her chair, Patrick rubs her shoulders and gives her a little smooch on the cheek.  Instantaneously, she runs away as if he’s got the cooties.  Later, she arrives in the chef’s office and tells him how much she enjoyed the bonbons.  They still taste like the very first one that was made at Ripoll.  Chef Martin’s recipes will be world renown, she says.  She gives the chef a kiss which is much more action that Patrick got for giving her a massage.  After she leaves his office, Chef Martin laments that he is a fraud.

Sofie returns home to Snob Hill and finds Alex waiting in her office.  Alexa wants to sell her share of the business.  Sofie says that Ripoll is a family business and they are not splitting it up.  Alexa says that Sophie will lose control of the board if Alexa sells her stock. 

Meanwhile, across the street, Grumpy Puss Paco is arguing with Chava’s mother.   He told her that he called Chava a traitor, and she is not happy about it.  Paco believes that Marisol, like her brother, is a traitor for trying to earn a living instead of showing their loyalty to him by starving to death.

Hasta el Fin del Mundo #6 8/25/14 The Unstoppable Force meets an Immovable Object

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I only got a chance to see the first segment of the show online, the rest I had to watch as broadcast. Univision had the 'D' team on closed captions again so the captions were lagging behind the dialogue on this episode. I apologize ahead of time if I missed or misunderstood some of the dialogue. Please feel free to fill in or correct in the comments.

Let's get to it!

Armando gets fired from his new job and discovers that his old boss has bad-mouthed him to all the other auto mechanics. His employment prospects look bleak.

Chava escorts Sofia through the gauntlet of news photographers and reporters crowded around the Ripoll factory gate. The reporters shout questions at them as they plow through the crowd. Sofia agrees to talk to the reporters inside the gate.

Silvana hands Marisol a Ripoll uniform. Marisol thought she'd be working in the offices. Silvana nastily informs Marisol that since she hasn't finished high school, she isn't qualified for anything but working on the factory line. Silvana grabs the uniform back from Marisol, "That's the job you've got. Take it or leave it." Marisol puts her hands out to take the uniform.

Capitulo 26: You Can't Always Get What You Want


No refritos today.
Lascuráin Mansion: In the kitchen, Bruno bursts Manuela's other bubble when he tells her that their boss will be marrying Isabruja. She is incredulous, asking “He's going to marry that bloodsucking bitch? How is that possible?” She is just as displeased with this idea as everyone else and rants about it. Bruno then suggests she pack her suitcase because Isabitch will certainly hand her a pink slip.

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS -- Reina de Corazones: week of August 25, 2014 - PAGE ONE

Well, my friends -- Reinamanía continues unabated.

♪♪ Dingdong, the Putz is dead ♪♪ (thanks, Sara!).  Any bets on the longevity of OBD or OBM (Odious Bitch Miriam)?

Navier knows that Big O is his father.  Will Big O's stony old heart soften when he finds out who his son is?

Does Navier know that Esmeeth is his mother?

Will Rocky Balboa be saved?

Will the Queen of Clubs turn out to be someone we already  know?  (Because the writers are playing with a full deck, right?  Kelly thinks they seem like good writers who thought up a completely insane story after a night of binge drinking.)  Penny -- who pointed out how often we see love on short couches -- has a very interesting theory on the subject of the fourth queen...

For a refresher on last week's happenings, Jean (who can stop ANY time she wants to) has compiled the most recent recaps in a dropbox here.
For your further delight (and at Doris's suggestion), I leave you with ANITA'S latest installment of

THE WISDOM OF THE DRAGON 
Subtitled: I Do Not Make Any Of This Up

Week Seven – Mon Aug 18

A Dragon must have enough pockets to carry listening-device detectors AND great big revolvers.

A Dragon can reassure a damsel to not believe everything other people say about her; but he is likely to ignore that advice when it comes to what people say about her to him.

A Dragon might be able to be the younger sibling of a Black Falcon; unlikely in nature, but in the realm of telenovelas, a real possibility.

Que Pobres Tan Ricos: #165 and #166: 8/24/14: El Grand Fin

Buona Sera Alla Tutti! It's the Grand Fin! I enjoyed recapping this TN so much, it has been a fun ride. We are doing this Grand Fin in three parts.

With tears in her eyes Vilma makes her statement: Since he took over the presidency when Mati could not anymore, (because Alejo himself gave her medication that made her confused). He used the Editorial to launder money that came from his other felonies and criminal associations…  (DA asks her if she has evidence, since she was the one suspected guilty of those felonies) She says but of course, there is a notebook full of numeric codes of all his overseas accounts… encoded codes from his criminal associates, information about his relationship with those criminals… which I can perfectly decipher/decode…

TELEMUNDO Y MÁS -- Reina de Corazones: week of August 18, 2014 - PAGE TWO

 Hola Reina fanáticos: It seems clear to me we are going to come very close or exceed the 200 comment mark. I am going to be on the road for a few hours today so I will not be able monitor that closely. So I am doing a page two now and posting Sara's excellent recap of a really interesting episode. A mystery solved - who killed the 13 and many questions. 


VIERNES PARTE 1
Reina wants to start a new life. Esmeeth will get everything ready for her. Navier interrupts the conversation, but Reina just says she's thanking Esmeeth. Navier notes with irony that Esmeeth is always there at the right moment and her boss must be very proud. He and Reina leave and Rocky comes in. He asks if she's going to say anything to Bolivar. She tells him no and that if he does it will cost him his job.

Laz arrives home. Miriam in the shower. A text from Putz arrives. Laz's cerebral hamsters begin treadmilling.

Estefy admits to being the one that hired the thugs to beat up Putz. No one is going to hurt Greata! Victor overhears and Estefy tells him that Putz was blackmailing Susana and threatening to tell Greata about her real mom. Estefy wanted Putz to understand that you don't mess with her. Victor approves and says he would have done the same...well, he would have done something a little different. He is unable to elaborate since his phone rings and interrupts. It’s Bolivar. We don’t know what he said, but Vic looks serious.

Miriam is out of the shower and she’s not happy with nosy Laz. She tells him Damian is a friend from rehb. Laz is no dummy. He begs her not to get involved with Putzy Trash like the Putz. Miriam concludes that Laz wants to leave her and go off with rich Greata. He can get rich and she can’t. Greata can’t even make love to him! Why Greata and not Miriam? For LOVE, Laz responds.

Izzy at the bridal shop. Connie tells him she’s a modern woman and willing to have a “free” relation with him. He agrees and asks her not to tell anyone about their “free” relationship.

Navier takes Reina to his apartment. Reina asks why they are there. He explains that he called Vic and told him they were giving their statements to Esmeeth. Reina doesn’t like when Navier reports things to Vic as if he were his trusted man. Navier clarifies that he is REINA’s hombre and she is his woman. Doesn’t she think they deserve to be away from all the crazy for just a moment. He’s not afraid of bullets. He’s only afraid of not being able to make love to her forever. Love on a short sofa. Shirtles Navier (drink.)

Laz looks for work. Miriam thinks Laz said he loved Greata just to annoy her. Laz is actually surprised by his feelings, too. Miriam makes the lame “she can’t make love to you” argument. Laz says a woman is more than just a body to him and Miriam doesn’t believe him. She knows he’s an ardent (fogoso) and passionate man. He pushes her away and tells her that thanks to her and the Putz’s shenanigans, he and Greata are kaput.

Greata cries alone. Susana comes in and asks what’s wrong. Greata says she can’t even dry her own tears. Susana asks if she’s crying for Laz. Susana explains that Laz had nothing to do with the beating of the Putz and that Laz is a good guy. Greata doesn’t believe it. No one who gets involved with her has honorable intentions. Who is going to love a paraplegic like her? Susana says everyone deserves a “gran amor”, even Greata.

Mi Corazon es Tuyo #25 When doing the right thing is doing the wrong thing.

Call out to Cynderella.  Male Stripper alert. See the first 2 minutes.

Our story continues where we left off, with Fernando telling Ana that he’s going to marry Isabela. And she is shocked and embarrassed for having thought that a mere employee would be asked to marry him, apologizes quickly, and leaves before he can explain. As she leaves, she loses her shoes, he chases after her and finally catches up in order to explain. She absolutely will not let him, cutting him off at every start, and runs away. I absolutely hate when they don’t let someone explain themselves. What would it hurt to hear the explanation?

Hasta El Fin Del Mundo #5: 8/22/14: We Are Family, I've Got All My Sisters With Me!

Hola Amiguis! I have another earworm for you in light of what occured during this epi.  Sisters, Sisters!  
I didn't take notes watching so if I missed anything please let me know. Take a look at these sisters! They look like close sisters don't they? But pictures don't tell the whole story do they? Shall we begin?



We start where we left off last episode. The arguement at the Ripoll table. With all the money that Alexa has spent in Spain, she must have lived like a Queen for four years. Sofia advises Alexa to go back there if she wants to. We'll get back to them in a tic.

Chava, Marisol and Lupe are at table too. Chava would really like it if Marisol would go back to school. Marisol argues with Chava and tells him it's a new century, not back in the day. She wants to earn her own money to get what she wants when she wants it. Chava is thinking of selling his race car. Here Lupe puts her foot down. Chava worked so hard for that car, and someday he'll get back to racing.

Que Pobres tan ricos #164.Aug 21 2014.. Emi makes little signs of progress, reunites with the Menchacas. A-hole is ready to celebrate his win.... but what did he win?? Boy, Aureliano finds a way to teach humility even after death.

Isela warns Mini not to tell anyone about the secret Isela wants to cash when she wants… Mini insults her and gets slapped for it. ISela gets on internet looking for non-profit she can buy. Nothing about greenpeace, hate animals, amnesty international, nah, don’t care about human rights… Isela keeps protesting about the slap… Isela says you earned it for annoying. Poor kids foundations… no I hate them… besides, who would you be able to marry a poor kid with?


Lupe questions A-hole on locking them up… Lupe warns him not to lock them up again. Lupe wants to leave with Emi, but A-hole overrides her… A-hole wants to talk to Emi alone. Lupe leaves irritated.

A-hole coaches Emi against MA, MA only wants to separate us… and your mom is in relationship with MA… Emi questions why did you tell me before not to tell her I knew about her and MA and now you want me to… A-hole says use it in your favor, tell her she can’t leave you for him… surely she will stay with us then…

MA and Saul argue at fruteria office, MA can talk real fast when he is angry… he is mocking A-hole’s tone of voice… has been talking like that since he was a kid per MA, now I hate him even more… MA can’t wait to be able to beat the crap out of A-hole. Saul says hold your impulses… the ‘tipejo’ has a restriction order against you… wait until after the issue of the clause… MA says that’s the problem, each day I doubt more that A-hole will fulfill the promise to get away from Lupe and Emi… otherwise, why the restriction order??

At Fonda Perla is holding a kitchen roll and some kitchen towel as a sash and is practicing her speech by holding some home made tiara… Leo, DA and Rita come and mock her a bit… Perla tells them she is counting on their support… she wants them to buy vote tickets for the contest. (its kind of like raffle tickets). Rita says the day is getting close she will return to the US. DA asks her why so soon? Rita asks DA if he has thought about whether he is going with her or not.

MA tells Saul that he has been thinking of what Vilma said about the notebook… if she said not even A-hole would think of it, it must be very obvious place… Saul says what if he hid it in office? MA says its more probable she hid it in his house… if the house is empty, no one will find it.

De Que Te Quiero Te Quiero #162, 8/22/2014

De que son adolescentes, son adolescentes

I didn't take notes and I probably should have. Please fill in. Oh, and there was no mention of the will.

I'll just start with Rod, Al and the tribunal (for lack of a better word.) Al reports that Rod is perfectly responsible for his acts and should rot. Rod continues with his act. "Oh yeah?" he sneers "If I'm so OK, then why do I see Dead Al standing right behind you?" Rod says some other things and Al is pushed to his limits and starts punching Rod. Way to go, dude. Ruin the case. Rod is carted off to the hospital. I'm sure this is setting up for lax security and an escape. Al gets yelled at for beating up on Rod.

El and Luz manage to catch up with the Garcias. They happen upon Paolo and Mara (who are still attempting a little hubba hubba in the woods.) El announces his move to Mérida. Carmen haz a sad. Lupita is also upset and El tells her he'll always care for her. I seem to remember Luz says something to El about at least letting Lupita know he's not really moving, but El is sure Lupita will squeal. Carmen has to believe that he's really leaving.

Weekend Discussion: To the Manor Born -- How Much Does That Really Matter?



The class distinction that happens in telenovelas obviously fuels more than a couple of plot points per series. In the Americas there are no titles like those in Europe such as Sir or Dame for KBEs; Baron, Count, etc., in other countries, and there are equivalents in the Middle East.  Here in the Americas it's usually about money or where you went to school.

In all our stories these things are used by those who choose to ignore that all human beings are the same in all important things.  But so do people do this in life and it extends beyond how much gold is in your parents' coffers when you're born.

A college buddy of mine worked for a major global corporation for a number of years.  He was smarter and more articulate than many of his colleagues.  However, he didn't attend an Ivy League university and isn't a WASP; he's a first-generation American of Irish Catholic parents.  That alone was going to keep him out of the board room.  He didn't care about that once he got to the advertising department of his company where creativity was valued.

Do you think this is outdated or have you witnessed this in your own lives?  Have you beaten it on occasion?

For Reina and Dragon Fans
THE WISDOM OF THE DRAGON
(REINA DE CORAZONES)
2014

Week One – Jul 7
Subtitled: I Am Not Making This Up

Always take your dragon to work.

Always “borrow” a Yellow Miata rather than a black SUV when following a pretty girl.

When the object of your interest tells you she is a virgin, tell her you’ll take care of her (this has the advantage of being appropriately vague). Proceed as human nature dictates.

Que Pobres Tan Ricos #163: 8/21/14: She's Come Undone

Hola Amiguis! This is my last full recap for Pobres. I didn't take many notes, so if I got something wrong just let me know. Take a listen to this little earworm as you read the recap. She's Come Undone!  Shall we begin?

I am skipping the old and getting right to the new.

At El Editoral Vilma calls Ahole. She still wants out of the joint. He tells her to be patient that he'll be the President soon and then he'll get her out. Vilma is googly eyed and beleives the lying liar that lies. Sucks to be Vilma.

Carm and Guendy are having a chat. Once Guendy marries Nepo she will be moving into his abode and Carm says no worries, she is still going to be living at Guendy's. Carm has to go now, but will talk to her more this evening.

Hasta El Fin del Mundo #4: 8/21/14: It's All About the Price Tag and The Bling Bling!

Hola Amiguis! This recap will be short and sweet. I have a wee little earworm I've been wanting to use and now I can! Take a listen as you read the recap, I Can't Drive  I am skipping the old and commencing with the new. Shall we begin?

Alexa is in the back of that Mercedes, sniffling about Papa's car, cause I guess when they went to the funeral this was the car used. Armando, ever the gentleman, asks her if she is okay cause he didn't know about the car. She just wants to go home. Armando tells Alexa he just loves this car, her Papa must have been great. Alexa asks if Armando is a chofer. Nopis, he's a mechanic and explains the racing circuit. She knows all about it she says. She went to races in Monaco.

While Greta is giving Miguelina hell, Fausto in the back is giving Lucas hell. Fausto has dealt with little ruffians like him before, grabs him by the scruff of his neck and throws him out. Kudos to Fausto!
