Totalmente Diva Watch Party 10/9/17-10/13/17

Sandra and Fabi are a thing…sort of. Deborah and Charles could be if she’d realize he keeps giving her those looks.

Gilda and the kids are living at Arturo’s. Eliza is NOT living at Arturo’s, but they’re dating. That’s it–just dating, not getting married, not living together. Caro’s fired from Excalibur. There’s no sign of Dino, but I swear I can feel him lurking out there somewhere just waiting to come back.

Wesley’s having a really difficult time adjusting. He, Jenny, and Rosangela have moved into a downstairs neighbor’s apartment. Bola is moving in with Florisval. Jonathan’s moving in with Leila.

And Hugo…won the lottery?

Author: 5ftLatina

Kat is 5ftLatina. She is really 5' tall (and probably shrinking) and Latina. She is not actually a cactus, but she is both prickly and cute. Mr. 5ft is actually married to Kat, but is not 5' tall or Latina. He is also not a form of plant life.

I missed two whole episodes thanks to that capitalization error in the DirecTV guide! I’m not sorry that I missed the Eliza-Arturo squabble or the lottery win, but I would have liked to have seen more of Sofia lurking around.

After Tuesday’s episode, I guess we have the answer to your question. Apparently they identified the body based solely on a ring.

That clenched fist tells us that Sofia is angry, but is she angry at Rafael or Lili? The widower sleeping with his late wife’s mom has always seemed creepy to me, and now it’s even creepier.

Just this weekend USA Today had a story about telenovelas. The story had comments from a long-time telenovela viewer who was indirectly quoted as saying that “LGBTQ story lines are missing from telenovelas, and darker-skinned Latinos often are stereotypically cast in servitude roles.”

I’ve only been watching for a few years, but I’ve seen several LGBTQ characters, from the transgender exotic dancer Marina in Mas Sabe el Diablo to the nutty assistant Ro in Marido en Alquilar. Those were filmed in Miami, and this is a Brazilian TN, so maybe not so much in Mexico.

At first I thought it wasn’t fair for the driver to have been punished for Sofia’s faked death, but since he was responsible for his passenger’s death, I guess it’s fair after all. I wonder why the TN writers made the passenger a prostitute. Are they assuming that she had no family so that no one would go looking for her and discover the switcheroo? It looks like Eliza is putting her family first over Arturo. Working as a model during the day and moonlighting as a server in the restaurant is going to consume all of her time. I… Read more »
