IT'S RAINING TELENOVELAS, VERY HEAVILY!
More and more telenovelas coming in ; first 'CUERPO DEL DESEO ' and thanks to my battered Spanish Dictionary it means , BODY OF DESIRE and NOT 'SECOND CHANCE' and now 'TRIALS OF WOMEN', sort of like a reflection of this present heavy rainy season we've been experiencing lately. And we are yet to be done with CATALINA Y SEBASTIAN, ESMERALDA, REBECA as well as LA REVANCHA. Back in the 90's when we first got telenovelas, the practice was one after the other. First, it was THE RICH ALSO CRY, after it packed up came NO ONE BUT YOU, then afterwards when it was done THE LADY OF THE ROSE,somewhere in between(on weekdays) WILD ROSE , after LADY OF THE ROSE was MARIA DE LOS ANGELES. Some years later came ESCRAVA ISAURA, immediately it ended came SECRETS OF THE SANDS.
Not that i'm complaining or anything, but we are knee deep in telenovleas and how ON EARTH are we Nigerian viewers going to follow them , especially since TO SOBRE CAMILLA(all about Camilla), LA MUJER DI MI VIDA & LA HIJA DE JARDINERO are back in MBI, GOTEL and LTV respectively, plus LA USURPANDORA in Galaxy? pls. send your comments about this post and once again cast your votes below as this is the last day.
A reminder: i have the info. on LA USURPANDORA as well as its final episode on this blog.Pls Click on USURPADORA and END for what happens long after Paulina's trial and the very last episode.
About CUERPO DEL DESEO: it stars Mario Cimarro who played Antonio Adolfo Thompson in LA MUJER DI MI VIDA with his now EX wife Natalia who played Babarita(the blonde girl in the pic, they seperated last year) and telenovela legend Andres Garcia who we Nigerian viewers all remember as Antonio Lombardo in NO ONE BUT YOU with the lovely Lucia Mendez (see below LA MUJER DE MI VIDA).
PLOT: (courtesy of WIKIPEDIA)
The story features Pedro José Donoso (Andrés García), a wealthy old man in love with a gorgeous younger woman, Isabel Arroyo (Lorena Rojas). He dies suddenly, but returns to Earth through transmigration: (the passing of a soul into another body after death), in the body of Salvador Cerinza (Mario Cimarro), a handsome (yet poor) family man. Pedro José searches for everything he lost, uncovering secrets, truths and deceptions. Ultimately, he must set things straight and save those who truly loved him.
Pedro Jose Donoso - a wealthy industrialist who, at 67, thinks he has everything he ever wanted. He has a gorgeous young wife, despite the age difference and opposition from his only daughter, Ángela.
Salvador Cerinza - a farmer who lives a sad life with his stingy wife Cantalicia and their son,
Moncho. Then everything changes when he suffers a mysterious accident.
Isabel Arroyo - a sensual, ambitious woman who loves her husband, Pedro Jose, at least on the surface.
Andrés Corona - Pedro Jose’s right hand man and Isabel’s secret lover. Two-faced, astute and ruthless, he will do anything to take everything Pedro Jose owns.
Ángela Donoso - the only daughter of Pedro Jose, who returns from abroad when she discovers his engagement to Isabel. She also has feelings for Andrés.
