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.

Did y’all know that Itatí Cantoral’s real-life twins (their father is actor Eduardo Santamarina) are playing Kiki’s twins in the series? I think they look a lot like their dad!

Something really discordant happened last week, but I’m just now getting around to mentioning it. After a particularly harrowing scene of Chumo reeling in alcoholic agony, they cut to a commercial for Miller Lite!!

Like Sara, it really bothered me to see Minerva wipe away Gonzalo’s kiss. The only redeeming quality we’ve seen in her so far is her concern for the battered wife.

Omigosh!! I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out why Kiki’s sons seem so familiar to me, but now that you mention their dad I totally realize that’s what I’m seeing!!!

I tend to fast forward through commercials too, so I hadn’t noticed the beer ad. I guess every ad dollar counts, but it is disconcerting that so much of the plot revolves round the destructive power of alcohol and they are still showing ads for alcohol. Zero sensitivity is right.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks that María resembles Salma Hayek! 🙂

I have to hand it to the writers. They are adding more and more plot elements and I’m not annoyed by them. Usually that is something that just puts me on edge. In this case I’m intrigued by almost everything.

Who is this Carmen Moore (am I remembering the name correctly?) who recently passed away?

Gonzalo was so proud of his first paycheck. The more Gonzalo becomes a better person, the more Mine gets on my last nerve.

Really, Miguel? You really thought Maria would fall into your arms after telling her you left your wife.

I’m so done with Mine and Negro.

I’m a little confused by La Güera’s plan with Ancona. I’ll just keep watching.

I’m glad José knows about Chumo now, but it’s still going to be hard on Chumo. Obviously José and Gonzalo drink enough that it worries Margarita. Poor Chumo.
