Por Siempre Mi Amor #67 US 3/10/2014 The Padre's Dead, Zenaida Survives but will Cuca and Tita?
Well Amigos, we dodged one bullet and got hit by another. PSMA stayed in its time slot at 8PM but Uni is up to the old tricks again, deleting scenes and combining episodes. Monday's episode was a sliced and diced scrambliation of episodes #86 and #87 in Mexico. I didn't know Uni was going to start doing this again, so I only watched the first episode online. I'm sorry to say that I missed lots of the dialogue in the second half because the closed captions were lagging way, way behind the conversations. I'd really appreciate if all of you could help fill in what I missed in the comments.
As usual - and I was really hoping I'd never have to type this again - deleted scenes are in italics. Some scenes have been combined:
Javier realizes the private investigator is following him.
Que Pobres Tan Ricos # 45: 3/10/14:Nepo Has Got Lupita Under His Skin!
Hola, Amiguis! This recap will be short and sweet, not in order for better flow. Shall we begin? Here's a little earworm for you as you enjoy the recap: I've Got You Under My Skin
Mini and MA will be meeting somewhere they haven't met before, he is accepting her help to prove his innocence. She'll use the GPS to find the place.
Vilma is trying to give Ahole a massage, cause well, he is muy tense, what with MA and Adolfo still on the loose, if only they would be picked up by the cops. Vilma massages a bit too hard for Ahole's taste, so she has to soften her touch. Read more »
We meet Natalia on the day she's been elected Queen of the Fishermen of Tuxpan. She also receives a declaration of love from Andres, who she considers her BFF, and she turns him down. Brigitte, Natalia's younger sister is jealous of Natalia's crown and hints that Natalia doesn't deserve it, for not being a "real" Garcia (apparently the Garcia women have a lock on the Queenship).

Townhouse: Lady Monserrat demanded that her mother explain how
she came to have a daughter with Lord Benjamin Almonte. Countess
Graceless insisted that she had no right to know this, but Lady
Monserrat would not relent. A crocodile's tears are still visible,
and Countess Graceless shed hers as she explained that she had fallen
into a delicate condition in a time when the obvious current solution
was not possible. When she gave birth to a baby girl she decided
that it would be best to put her up for adoption. However she died
shortly after birth and the hairs Countess Graceless saved were all
she had of her. She had not been aware that modern science could
disclose not only the parentage but the gender of the hair's donor.
Lady Monserrat had spoken to Father Anselmo who had explained that he
and Macario had buried the infant. Her sister. She asked whether
her mother had ever visited the burial place and Countess Graceless
tearfully told her she had never had the courage to do so. It was a
wound that would never heal, she cried.
Lo Que La Vida Me Robo #83- 3/7/14: 'Cause I Want It That Way
Ahoy Amguis. It is bright and sunny on the Patio today, but the storm clouds are gathering in the distance. There is a disturbance in the force, known as Pedro Medina, and as his machinations start to sprout and bear fruit, we on the Patio, have prepared that Bunker again. It will be nice and cozy when the time comes for its use. In the meantime, let us enjoy the soft breezes, tropical drinks and the wonderful company as you sit back and enjoy this little earworm that I have found for you. Please don't diss the recapper for the first earworm choice, cause well, I'm a fan ; ) I Want It That Way
When we last left Nadia and Esme they were having a little convo about that thorn in their side, named Pedro Medina. That man is a sticky wicket. Nadia is lamenting the fact that she is trapped in her loveless marriage and there can be no divorce. Esme wants to help Nadia as much as Nadia wants to help Esme. Nadia drops the bomb on Esme by telling her that gasp *EZ and Pedro are amantes* (lovers)! Well, shut the front door Irene, but Esme is floored. No way she tells Nadia. EZ is so into Esme, as in girlz. Not boys! Well, shut Nadia's mouth, but, but, she caught EZ underwater in that jacuzzi, with Pedro in it! Esme tells Nadia she is wrong, wrong and wrong. EZ is a brown noser (I learned this little phrase when I was in the Navy, it means you have your nose so far up your boss' butt, it turns brown), he's ambitious but he is NOT gay! Look on Nadia's face Priceless!!!! Read more »
Que Pobres tan Ricos # 44, MA falls deeper into his 'A-hole'-itis after Mati does another 'trick' on him and then can't remember the details.
Isela gives up on giving Mini advice. She tells her I don’t care anymore what happens to you.
Mini calls someone on phone. Out comes A-hole. She has to hang up and he asks who she was about ot call. You dear! … Mini says it was him and he sais it makes no sense she was calling him from patio to the house. A-hole looks at Mini’s belly… he says she looks like she is getting bigger… calls her ‘mi gordis’ and she hates that. Don’t you dare say I have a belly. Isela uses the opportunity to mock Mini some. Isela again squeezes A-hole’s cheeks as he takes his exit. Isela urges Mini to start using the ‘fake belly fillers’. And as she leaves, she mocks Mini again calling her ‘GORDIS!!’ (leaves laughing)
Lupita comes in to Mati’s room. Lupe had bought Mati some clean pj’s at the market. Mati loves them. They look so warm! Shouldn’t have. Lupe says no sweat. Would love to do more to make her feel comfortable. Mati swears God will compensate her some day.
Saul/MA out somewhere… Saul still miffed at MA for the ‘fideicomiso’ plan. MA says now more than ever I need that money urgently! (again gives his family as excuse to get the money any way he can).
The notary with bad hearing is reviewing the papers MA and Saul brought him. MA yells at the guy and only gets the guy more mad. The lawyer yells at them because the papers in the envelope seem some sketches from Gwendy or Perla instead of the papers MA meant to bring over… MA again blames it on Saul and his young brother ‘Leonardo’. (ah! So these sketches belonged to Leo?) MA and Saul mention that the papers were in the ‘bust’ of the grandpa and the lawyer takes that the wrong way and ends up kicking them out of the office. Don’t waste my time!! As Saul and MA leave, they argue again. MA tries to blame Saul and he bounces the potato back. They are yelling at each other. Saul is right in ranting that he has spent so much time with MA trying to help him out. MA says I can handle my issues ALONE!! Saul just leaves in a huff. Read more »
Javier decides he needs to get rid of Este. That will kill two birds with one stone since it will destroy Andrea. Even Sonia seems appalled.
Dan confronts Sonia and wants to know why she went to see Mari so much at Tita's and why she jumped the gun in introducing her to Don Gil. Sonia claims she was just looking after little bro.
Art hires an inept PI. Javier spots him almost immediately and confronts him (we have to wait until Monday to find out what happens.)
Dan and Gil get into a huge fight. Dan is leaving the house and Gil is cutting off any financial support. This is good news to Sonia since it just means more $$$ for her.
Gabi finds out about Almudena and Bruno wanting to adopt the kiddoes. She calls Bruno and bursts into tears as she congratulates him. Later she and Isa talk about mood swings. Isa asks Gaby what she will tell the baby about the daddy.
Thursday, March 6th, 2014-Por Siempre mi Amor Recap # 65- Oh, The Way We Were....
Recap by CorazonSalvaje
This is the first half of the episode- feel free to add any missing parts.
Daffne Duck is going off on 'Za about
how she has always been in love with BonBon. 'Za calls BS; she would
always insult the boy. (right on the money there) Daffne then says she
did it to hid how she really felt (LIES!) and 'Za then says anyone who
heard her could automatically suspect she was a spiteful bitch (some
paraphrasing LOL) More back and forth about BonBon and then she says she
hated feeling that way about him while he was 'Za's BF. She had to
think horrible about him to shoot him out of her heart. A little more
chit-chat and Daff states they've always been like sisters and she would
never go against her, EVER.
-Dena is telling BrunBrun how she feel sabout Tita's
arresting. She states it feels like an exaggeration and Tita doesn't
deserve that after all the good she has done. To finalize this scene,
she states none of this would be happening if it hadn't been for that
stupid anonymous call. BrunBrun laments unfortunately, they will
neverknow who made it. Ally gives an expression that screams, "Watch
'while I SMH. (for reals sistah!)"
-On the stairs, 'Za is apologizing for having things
happen the way they did and she didn't mean for them to occur. Daff then
states times they are a'changin'; BonBon is single (and not really
ready to mingle), you left him for another (more like one who is in need
of a Lorena Bobbit job) and I had to go be his shoulder to cry on. It
was hard spilling my guts though and watching him in pain the way he
was. She asks if she is over BonBon and just into FeVer. 'Za says yes
but BonBon is her ex and her first above all things, he will always be
her first love. 'Za never thought they'd be having that conversation
(LOL) but isn't jealous. Daffne Duck thanks her for understanding that
her love for BonBon is the purest of pure love (water.)
-Dena is wondering about Bronce Mari. She is about to
grow into legal age; therefore, they can't place her in an institution.
Brun explains what's up and that Bronce Mari was accused of working with
a delinquent gang (Dante, Gonzo and unfortunately, Borlas) which leaves
Dena shocked. Some chit-chat later and Dena says something about they
ending up with all the enanitos. Brun slightly blows a gasket at the
thought of all of them being theirs.
-DannyBoyl is astonished (negatively) with what Bronce
Mari did with the kids and she then laments they will be taken away
from her now. DannyBoy then says something about a few more years and BM
says at least she had somewhere to take them. DB then says when she is a
mother, she'll be excelente (positively) and BM says she doesn't want
any other ones. She is happy with los enanitos and she was so close to
-Dena is getting mad since Brun is showing cold feet
at the thought of adoption (hace poco, he was ecstatic about it...) He
isn't regretful about adoption but he wants a baby; a newborn! Dena
explains a baby would be nice but there are five kids who need them more
than ever (y ademas, they're loved by the kids!) Dena says they haven't
a moment to lose. Let's get to the police and adopt the kids lickety
split! If not, then other couples are going to take them. Brun then says
they have to get DannyBoy and Tita out of jail. Dena agrees but he had
to promise to make sure those kiddoes will be their after all! He tries
to turn her off about it by describing the situation as drastic but she
is resistant and mentions she isn't alone. She had him and Zenaida and
TITA! She gave them classes, she is ready. Brun is surprised by all
this. Dena says she has never been able to have kids and this would
fulfill her dream of being a mother. Some sympathy later and the two hug
(I think it's the most inimate they have been in this entire novela.)
-FeVer stares pensively outside the window
thoughbubbling about how he made out with 'Za and that he has to watch
his back for his son due to the fact that 'Za and BonBon are still in
love. Hell no, he is thinking out loud about how he is going to dispose
of his son. (You won't get away with this FeVer.)
-BonBon is laying down on the red couch when 'Drea
comes to ask what's up.BonBon denies and she states he is a good liar
and should speak his mind. He says he doesn't wanna worry her. Is it
that bad? OK so he went to the movies with Daffne and coincidently, 'Za
and FeVer were there. 'Drea then agrees that is bad but changes
opinion(s) when she hears that FeVer told them to be civilized and that
it was Daffne's idea. Daffne and 'Za are best friends who live
together;inseperable. The least FeVer and BonBon can do is stick it out
and mature (only one has to mature but he who does is beyond redemption
so it's too late.)
-Isa and Art Dad are worried about Tita being
convicted. Especially with how happy she was earlier when annoucing her
wedding with Oso.
-'Drea and BonBon are talking some more and about
gMeanerva. 'Drea plans on asking someone to keep their eye(s) on her.
BonBon says she seems redeemed and that she plans on taking therapy.
'Drea requests he help her since they have always been close and he is
happy to oblige.
-'Za drops the ball and let's Isa know about Soni's
ways. At dinner, she figured everything out. She gets everything from a
face Soni made when Tita said she has always wanted to be Missus De la
Riva. She also lets it spill that Soni influenced her with bad behavior
plans and asks for forgiveness but Isa states it happened years ago and
she will always love/forgive/ give love (to) her. 'Za swears she will
never let Soni ruin her life again. That is, Isa lets her know she has
been talking with Soni lately and the girl acts changed.
Lo Que La Vida Me Robo 82, 3/6/14--The Foundling's Tale--
Beware of Women In Black Hats
The señorita in the black hat walked into Alejandro’s
town mansion like she owned the place. By total happenstance Mama Rosario had
answered the doorbell when it rang and the woman rushed past Rosario as a narcotraficante
cigarette boat might move past a 1929 Stephens Brothers Motor Launch, all flash
and dash and no class at all.
Mama Rosario held her
dignity as she brought the blonde a cup of coffee and offered it to her with an
air of gracious formality. When the woman asked if she was the keeper of the
keys (housekeeper) Rosario gave a tiny nod and a meaningful “No,” as she slid
out of the room gracefully.
Alejandro prowled in
looking like a lion that had spent too long in a tanning bed. He checked to see
who had come by his den. Montserrat was by his side, with a not unfriendly
“I am Alejandro
Almonte and this is my wife, Montserrat.”
“I am looking for Don
Benjamin Almonte,” said the woman in the black hat.
“My father died a year
and a half ago.”
Now, for the first
time, the woman looked a bit off-balance. “I understood…”
“You understood that
my father had no children.” Alejandro looked slightly irked. “Everyone assumed
that but it was not true.”
The woman had broad
shoulders, like a swimmer, and she looked elegant standing there in a long
black dress that might have been purpose-built to go with the hat. It was
clear that the hat was what was important in this outfit.
She got a knowing look
on her face and, almost under her breath she said, “My uncle died.Now I understand everything.”
Alejandro looked like
he had swallowed a bitter Chinese herbal concoction as he asked his cousin to
sit down. He said he had no idea that his father had other relatives.
Que Pobres Tan Ricos #43- 3/6/14: Money, Money, Money!
Hola Amiguis! Shall we begin? Here's an earworm for y'all to listen to as you read the recap:For The Love of Money.
AS is pithed the maitre de hotel wants her to pay the bill like toute de suite, in other words, now! She argues with the guy that she is high society and things are just not done this way, by Jove! Leo is right there with her and is worried that bill is sky high! Leo utters "Help Me Jesus"!
Mini has Adolfo on the phone and is trying to convince him to suelte la sopa (spill the soup) give up the goods. Well, Ahole has heard enough and wants the phone. He shoos Isela and Mini off. Mini does stay lurking to hear what is being said, close enough and not too far away. Adolfo wants that lana like yesterday. Ahole tells him it will take some time to gather the lana together. Adolfo wants 35 thousand dollars and not a penny less. If he doesn't come up with it soon, I think Adolfo says he'll want more. Ahole is pithed!
AS and Leo finally get the bill and it's a whopper. AS thought the champagne and caviar were the bennies, as in free, for this deluxe hotel to give out. Nopis! The Maitre de Hotel tells them they take payments in Dollars, Pesos or Euros, take your pick. AS says she will pay. Read more »
Breaking news:Dimitrio is a boy and has a back bone! Lo que la vida me Robo Wed March 5th.2013
Hi everyone, I want to start of by thanking you all for your kind thoughts, the last few weeks have not been great, I lost a childhood friend, work is driving me crazy (working super long hours) and yesterday we got bad news regarding my sister, as some of you may know she suffers from lupus and it looks like her illness has caused damage to her kidneys-and all the other treatments have not worked for her, so not good news, which is why you are getting a quick recap from me today-she gave me this news last night as I was watching Robo, so I'm not in snarky mood today, at any rate I hope my quick recap helps. Again, thank you all for everything, I've never met a better group of people on the internet, you guys are all super special :)
Josefina takes Graciela's advice and stands up to Tomas, she wants control of her money and dares him to take her credit cards, money and property, this was a bad idea because he kicks her out of the house and she ends up in Graciela's living room crying her little eyes out while Graciela throws insults her way, but what's this? Dimitrio stands up for her, oh my who knew he could grow a back bone? He tells his mother to STFU and stop with the insults, and informs her that his wife is going to be living there with him, although Graciela is not a happy camper. Later in the episode Dimitrio goes to talk to Tomas who tells him his intention is to return to Josefina all of her cash-as long as she agrees to leave with him to Mexico city and never come back to town, Dimitrio is a sad panda and almost looks like he could cry at the prospect of his wife going bye-bye. That same day, after he has an argument with Graciela, Dimitrio has the absolutely great idea of leaving with Josefina, he tells her to pack because they is leaving! Josefina talks him out of it (nooooooooo) and in the end they stay put, ooooh and did I forget to tell you folks that Graciela made Josefina clear the table like she was a maid? B*tch.
I wasn't able to post a recap. As consolation, I offered this unrelated but very spectacular recipe for carnitas.
Our wonderful readers/commenters posted all the bits and pieces, and I was able to add a few more things after watching the first half of the episode this morning. Here is what we came up with:
Mati refuses to go to the doctor even though MA tells her its best for her. Frida sides with Granny so Mati doesn't go to the doctor.
Madelaine, Anon, Martaivett, Jarifa, and Julie:
MA and Saul go to that construction company and meet another guy that has been doing some research on the deceased Mr. Trejo's old accounts.
The adviser told MA and Saul that the place in the Nopalera was NOT worth a million dollars, but there is a fideicomiso (trust fund) of a million dollars (not pesos) for the OWNER of the property when he finishes paying it off. MA wants to get hold of documents that prove he is the owner by having Granny Mati deed the place over to him, thus cutting off the Menchacas - which Saul is telling him is wrong and unethical (just like Alejo).
The lawyer/notary clearly said the property would belong to the 'owner' once he finished paying for it so it clearly is pointing to Don Chuy.
ALSO: He says that there are two halves of the trust fund document. He's got one half, and the owner of the property will have to present the other half along with the property deed in order to claim it.
There is ALSO a "clause," but he can't tell them about that until they bring the deed AND the other half of the trust document (and maybe something more, I dunno).
Saul tells MA that if he were going to pull a fast one on the Menchacas he would be just like his cousin Alejo; it would not be ethical; it would result in legal problems and he (Saul) would not help him. Read more »
Por Siempre Mi Amor #64- 3-5-14- Who Let The Dogs Out?
Tita and Dan are arrested, not for helping the kids but the
way that they did it without formal authorization/paperwork.
Gmeanie finally fesses up.
GMeanie is blaming everyone but herself. Mau won’t stop her
from letting the doorknob hit her where the good Lord split her. She tries
guilt tripping but it doesn’t work, Andrea is devastated that her mother has
deceived and stolen from her and her family.Este wants to know the truth from GMeanie.Andrea blames herself, thank goodness
she has Mau.Gmeanie doesn’t
understand how Gema got those pictures.Is she kidding??? She still doesn’t see the error in her ways.
[This one starts next Monday, 3/10/14] Natalia and Diego meet during a festival of Tuxpan Veracruz fishermen, where Natalia will be crowned queen. Love springs forth from the first instant in which they see each other. Both are completely ignorant about who each is, which is no obstacle when beginning their romance. For this reason Natalia doesn’t learn that Diego has a twin brother, Rodrigo, who has competed all his life with him. He, when learning about his brother’s new romance, has no qualms about impersonating him. And, the night of Natalia’s coronation he shows up as his brother, Diego.
Que Pobres Mas Ricos # 41, Mini finds MA and vows to get him back. Grandma Mati found. A-hole makes a generous offer to AS, she lies: La Condesa supports us. Lupe and MA have another cute scene alone.
Refrito: Lupe breaks Nepo’s heart… in the most subtle way she can think of… which is nice of her.
Lo Nuevo: not sure I liked that Lupe put the ‘Mati lost’ situation as excuse to send Nepo off for the nite.
Tato and Frida, she accepted his ride after all. She is honest to him that he is all ‘pose’ and no backbone. He forces a kiss on her, and gets a slap back. (good for you Frida!!) She leaves, he laughs it off.
Here is Maca!! Again at restaurant with AS and Leo spending money, Maca wants Escargot (fuchi!), AS mentions that it is the best in Mex, even Dionisio, the God of wine, would approve of the selection. LOL!
Isela and Mini… Isela is getting a massage, nagging at Mini, saying 'if it weren't for these moments, I would have given you up for adoption right off the bat', says that Mini stresses her out. Tato calls Mini’s cell. Tells her he knows the area where Frida lives but not the exact address (Mini gets mad, hangs up on him.) Mini asks Isela if she remembers of any property the RP had at San Angel. Isela says she remembers that is where the old house of Don Aure/Dona Mati’s was. Isela asks Mini what are you up to now? Mini says I know ‘mi cuento’(my story). Isela asks what will we tell A-hole now? Mini: you’ll come up with something. Read more »
Lo que la vida me robó, ep. 80, Tues., March 4, 2014: Love in the Time of Cannabis
Or is it opium? We may never know precisely which drogas ilicitas have been sown on Alejandro's land. All we can say for sure is that our little telenovela has taken a 'ripped from the headlines' turn. The Mayor of Aguazul is not just a cruel and corrupt man with severe emotional problems and a hunger for control; nor is the Chief of Police just a clown-like opportunist with a gift for manipulation. As these last few episodes have shown, these two -- and all who work for and with them -- are part of the modern Mexican scourge: drug trafficking.
The kids get antsy
in Tita’s closet.They make noise
while looking for a window.
Mr. Twitchy, CPS
worker, is still looking for the kids.
Cris is leaving the
university because he can't bear to be around Daphne and Este. (Snap out of it
Dante asks Javier if
he wanted another drink and he asks for a cosmopolitan which Isa stops and
notes, Osvy toasts first- Fab will take his last name and Sucia marvels,
Mr. Twitchy is still
looking for the kids. They are up to the last bedroom. He is sorry to
have wasted their time. He leaves and then twitches back saying they are
here, over and over again.
Tita makes an
announcement -Tita and Osvy are getting married. Ally will be the
wedding planner. Sucia congratulates the couple and Tita blurts out, you
always wanted to be Mrs. De La Riva. Fab asks and Tita tells him that
Sucia was in love with Art. Fab asks Sucia if it's true.
Yes, she lied that
she was in love with Art but he was in love with Isa, so she left the path open
for her. And it really wasn't important. (Ara should be taking mental notes
because her aunt told her what a bad woman Isa was and how she was with Art
while her mom was alive and it is all lies)
Tita was happy to
have that little jab and so was Viewerville.
Mr. Twitchy is still
there and hears a cough that Dan says is a dog. The little man insists on
going into the closet but sees nothing. The kids stay quiet but the
little man insists on looking in every corner of the closet and the kids
escape. Zenaida and Dan are in big trouble.
uncomfortable dinner, noted Ally. Ahh dessert is served, it's Tita's special.
Isa tells Sucia to
come clean with Fab and thanks Isa for her concern.
Fab is sorry that he
hasn't gotten more information about Javier or his family in Spain.
Javier is eavesdropping and strategically in front of Ara mentions that
if he had a daughter like Ara he would react the same. Ara wants to know
what's going on?
The Keystone Cop
skit is a bit silly at Tita's with the kids and Mari, Dan and Zenaida.
Dan has two options-
he takes the kids or calls the police and everyone is arrested. Then he bites
an apple.- que the heck?
Javier tells Ara
that her dad wants to know him better including his family in Spain.
Ileana tells Cris
that leaving the country to study is a bit much to avoid seeing Este and
Daphne. She tells him that he is changing his life for them and will lose a
semester. She will go with him and forget about Daniel. Ileana is or sure
if she could go, she is not as sure as Cris.
The CPS van comes
and it's a tearful farewell. Little Mr. Big tells Mari that she has to go
with the kids, pjs and all, since she is a minor. Zenaida and Dan cry in each
Ara wants to talk to
Sucia; ah she was listening and remembering. She wants to know why she
didn't tell Ara about her REAL feelings for Art, she lied to Ara.
Sucia tries, “the I was confused excuse” but Ara is not hearing it. She
no longer trusts Sucia- Woohooo!!!!!!! Finally the web is starting to
untangle) Ara tells Sucia that if her parents find out that she introduced
Javier to here they will flip out and be totally against her.
Tita welcomes Fab
into the family.She thanks Fab’s
mother for making her see the light with Osvy.
Agatha and Gema have
a delicious meal when Borlas comes a knocking. Borlas shows Gema the photos on
his phone that he took of GMeanie at the casino. She shows Agatha the
photos. Now she has the proof that she needed.
Javier has to go
back to work but he will be back to take Ara to the movies and Daphne wants to
make it a foursome. She's practically Ara's sister. Javier gives Ara a
kiss and Art can barely contain himself.
At the precinct the
kids are waiting for the owner of the house, Dona Tita. They don't know her
last name. The kids tell the Comandante that Tita gives them sandwiches,
buys them clothes and lets them play with Don Porfirio. Ally gives them classes
in reading and math and Tita is like a grandmother. The Comandante feels
that the kids are not mistreated. They share that Pimienta has chicken pox and
she is quickly escorted out of the office.
next Monday- the time is changed to 11 AM
congratulates Tita and Osvy. Daphne tells Tita better late than never.
Tita hopes that the
Sucia - Fab romance doesn't blossom. Everyone notes that Fab is a good
man who is in love with Sucia. What a pity!! When Sucia came to
Isa's office, Isa asked Sucia to come clean and be honest, everyone deserves a
second chance. Tita says that if he knew everything (meaning Marianela)
he may feel different but her lips are zipped for now. Bruno asks but she
doesn't tell him. Tita's cell phone rings and she finds out that CPS took
At the precinct,
they are questioning Marianela to insure that they were not mistreated or
abused. Marianela said that Tita only wants the best for them; she took
them off the street. She also has chicken pox so she is rushed to the
doctor. The little man is squirming.
The Comandante wants
to know what to do with the kids; two detectives say that they know Mari. The
little man couldn't be happier.
Art knows someone
who can help Tita.
Ara can't believe
that her aunt has lied to her all these years, saying that she was protecting
her and it was for her own good but Daphne says that auntie was manipulating
her. Ara reminds Daphne that when they were little Sucia was after Art
but Ara didn't believe her. Ara says that for years she blindly believed
her and it hurt her relationship with Isa.
Fab wants the 411
from Sucia about being in love with Art; Sucia plays it off as an illusion of a
young girl. (Fab -make mental notes of these red flags). She just felt such
compassion for Ara that she would be a good mother figure for her. She lies
that Art asked her to live with them after Eugenia died. Fab isn't buying
it all but Sucia swears. It was a confusion.
Art speaks to his
contact and Tita could be charged with kidnapping the kids. It can come with
jail time. Isa calls someone.
Tita and Osvy review
the legal papers and Bruno wants to find out where the kids are.
Fab wants to know
why Tita doesn't like Sucia and she makes up yet another lie. Tita is very
jealous, when Eugenia died Ara confided in Sucia and Tita didn't like it.
Tita always talks badly about her to Ara and Fab thinks that Tita is a
Gema and Agatha go
over to Mau and Andrea's, Este is at home. They have the proof that
GMeanie was gambling. Gema shows them the photos.
The police think
that Mari is involved in the highway robberies of the electronics tricks. They
have a sketch that looks very similar to her.
Sucia tells Fab that
Tita isn't a bad person just a “buttinski” and is jealous. Fab is not
sure based on the way that Tita treated her but Sucia claims that she is just
jealous. Sucia doesn't carry any grudges. She will work to make Tita
think differently of her. She just adores Fab and he should take his father’s
last name. Pleeeeeeazzzzz!
Bruno finds out that
the kids are at the precinct and they are accusing Tita of kidnapping the
Isa and Art go to see
their lawyer and explain to him about Tita, Angeles de la Tierra, the
orphanage, the charity work, etc. Osvy calls Art and says that Tita is
going to get arrested and Art, Isa and the lawyer head to the precinct.
Este can't believe
that his grandma gambles. Maybe the photos were photo-shopped. Agatha
says that it's not one there are several. It's clear that GMeanie stole
the jewelry blamed Gema but used some jewelry for betting money at a luxurious
Mari doesn't have
chicken pox it's a viral reaction that's not contagious. More questions
for Mari. Mari doesn't have a last name, she has lived on the street and in an
orphanage, took the kids off of the street and had an apartment for them.
The Comandante wanted to know how did she financially sustain the kids?
Borlas came to see
the kids and Zenaida tells him that he is not welcome and the kids have been
taken away. Ally tells them that Mari and the kids are at the precinct
and Borlas looks sick.
Andrea and Mau
confront GMeanie who continues to lie. She threatens to leave and Mau
can't take the lies any more. They have proof.
Tita, Osvy, Bruno
and Dan confront the Comandante. He tells them that Tita is going to jail
for the way that she harbored the kids was illegal and she and Dan will be
charged with kidnapping. Osvy says that Tita will go to jail over his dead
GMeanie keeps on
denying that she gambles. Why does the family believe Gema over her?
Mau is strong; it's not only Gema's word. She's innocent. Este asks
her where did she get money to bet in the casino and she plays stupid.
She only goes to the doctor, Andrea can't take it. Mau shows her
the photos and it's quiet.
It's not a crime to
help children but according to the Comandante it's the way that they did it.
The way to resolve this is to arrest Tita and Dan. They are taken to
separate cells. Shouting ensues and Art and Isa arrive.
GMeanie denies that
it's her. Finally she admits that's she likes gamble. The money for
medical treatments was used for betting. She has her dignity and is going
to leave. She tries to put a guilt trip on Andrea, how could she allow
her mother to be treated like this. Good riddance! Andrea can't
defend her. Este is hurt, he helped her, he would do anything for his
grandma. Hit the road, GMeanie!!!

Por Siempre Mi Amor #62 US 3/3/2014 - Just A Few Speedbumps on the Road to Sonia's Pot of Gold
As the Great Winter of 2014 drags on I hope this may lift the spirits of the Winter Weary:
Hang in there. Spring will be here soon and Summer's on it's way!
It seems that at last Univision has stopped cutting and combining episodes! This was a full episode with no deleted scenes.
Tita and Osvi and Fabricio and Sonia are invited to dinner at Arturo's. Mari tries to break things off with Dan.
Daniel doesn't want to lose Mari. He can't believe she wants to call it quits at the first problem. Mari doesn't think a father and son falling out is a small problem, plus she's scared of Gilberto. On top of this Mari thinks there's a chance that Gil may decide to disown Dan because of her. Dan doesn't think that will happen and if it does, he'll teach English for a living. He asks Mari to give it time because he's sure his father will come around. Dan is in love with her. He'd do anything for her. They kiss.
Ozvi visits Fabrico at his office. Osvi is pleased that his sons are getting along so well. He wants to know if Fabricio has decided about taking the de la Riva name? Fab still isn't sure it's necessary since he already has a last name. Osvi wants to make amends for past mistakes. It was destiny that brought them together and the de la Riva name is his birthright. Osvi says, "You don't have to do anything you don't want to." Fabricio finally agrees and calls Oz "papa". Ozvi looks very pleased. Now all he needs is a big hug from his younger son. They embrace.

"The tiresome child is returned to us." I agree with Vivi, the rescue was worth it to see Enzo in his wet
t-shirt. Yowza that man's got a bod. If I were Chela I'd be pushing Temo in the well every time Enzo drives up.
She is just so stupid. I can't stand it. Doesn't it make you just want to shoot a taser at her? Your just sitting there reading
the paper minding your own business. She walks in and starts screeching and you hide the taser next to you and fire. ZZZZZttttt! She flops around on the floor
like a fish out of water. That would shut her pie hole for sure! I feel so much better now. - Connie
Gonzo is dead to me.
I want Barb to fall off a cliff. And take Dam & Cam with her.
I want to hit Esteve over the head with a Nerf bat.
If want to duct tape Gardenia's mouth shut.
I want Flor to get different glasses.
I want Curls & Sniffles to stop crying. --Doris
