Lol I think I'm the only Telenovela fan on the planet that hasn't seen any version of this story  🤣

I'm sorry, but I can't generate much sympathy for Betty's dad. Why on earth would anyone walk around with a briefcase full of cash, when you can easily pay a lawyer with a check or credit card? Maybe it was different in Colombia during the 1990s, but this Betty is set in today's NYC!

Am I seeing this right? Is Wilson the same actor who played Nelson on La Vecina?

I'm in love with the Peletón and I wish I had them as my friends and coworkers!

Me too. 

But I don't like the rest of the show 😥 This is the same thing that happened to me all the other times I tried to watch other versions, there is something about this show, either watching everyone being mean to Betty for stupid reasons giving me the ptsd or the covering up for the infidelities of a jerk, or just that Betty is taking a job she's way overqualified for because she's been discriminated against based on looks, (and that just fills me with impotent rage) or just my dislike of the fashion world in general but I'm not enjoying this as much as I want to. 😢 😭  😰

La Fea Mas Bella I didn't watch until the weird extension which had nothing to do with the plot of Yo Soy Betty, La Fea, so I don't know what it was like at the beginning. They've made some changes here, but I'm not getting a feel for how closely they'll stick to the original. It may be that I'm more patient with it because I already know where it's going. Or at least, I know where the telenovela went. What I don't know is whether they're handling this as a telenovela where the good guys get rewarded and the bad guys get punished or like a series where the ending is more realistic.

And of course...shameless plug!...if you feel the need to abandon it you can always check the recaps to see if it's coming around to to place you might like 😀

I think my problem is that I'm using telenovelas as an escape from the crappy problems I deal with in the real world (like getting judged based on my appearance, and the fact that I'm not willing to knuckle under and just conform damn it) so when some things in a show I'm watching strike too close I get too upset about it.

Plus mean girls. I hate shows with mean girls. Why can't we be nice to each other?

I'm not the kind of person who sees myself as in competition with every other woman around for the attention of any man who walks by, that viewpoint is totally foreign to me, and I don't really know how to deal with it in other women, so a lot of that stuff is problematic for me.

Which is why I love the Peleton and can't stand anybody else.

I think it's really important to have a screw it attitude. That's easier said than done. I work with teens and I seriously don't need their approval and not having it actually gives me street cred with my administration. I'm in a completely different boat and I see shows like this as almost field work since the kids act like they are in a telenovela sometimes. 🙄  😳

Ugh. Pati taking credit. OK, here's my story...

When I was but a wee little Kat, I worked as an executive assistant at a construction company. The sales guy worked out of our branch office and asked me to put together some slides showing things like what the profit margins were for different types of projects, which projects came in on time and under budget, etc. So, of course, I do that, because why wouldn't I? And before he goes off to this big company-wide meeting I try to sit him down and explain what criteria I was using for each comparison...dude doesn't want to listen.

I hear nothing more about it until Monday after the meeting, when one of the project managers asked if I wasn't the one who put the sales guy's presentation together. And all flattered I'm like "Yep!" And then he tells me that people were asking all sorts of questions about how he got the info and the sales guy had no idea and the project manager was confused because he could have sworn I was the one who did the work, and if the sales jackass had just said so they would've trusted the numbers, because Kat. But instead he said NOTHING. Because how was he going to tell the entire friggin' company that a 19-year-old administrative assistant had put the numbers together FOR him. So not only did he take credit for my work, him taking credit made them distrust the numbers. Meaning I had completely wasted my time.

Which is why, when I worked in a different field and was asked to hand over information about a recent event for someone ELSE to present at a board meeting, I said no. Kat doesn't do that.

And which is why, when people steal my recaps and put their names on them, I say NO.

And that's story time for today. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Ahh guys who work in construction. When things go right they take the credit, even if you were the one on the phone explaining to them how to do their dang job. When things go wrong its always your fault and not theirs for not knowing how to do their dang job.

Dude did get fired, though. I mean, not for that. And it was both the scariest and the most "Hahaha, feel my wrath!" moment ever when I did what I was told by my boss and checked through EVERY SINGLE THING he was leaving the office with to verify none of it was ours. And then I got to call the locksmith to change all the locks, even though he handed over his keys.
