"Te odio!" with flashes of the love she thought she had.

     Victoria is stunned by Eloisa's news their children are getting married. Victoria doesn't thinks this sounds like Monse. She confess this to the maid, later she tries to convince Antonio that they really love each other.

     Daniel admitted the truth to his Father on his false ID. He had actually been the one to cut the brake line on the car. He allowed his friend to ID Checo as someone they saw hanging around the parking lot. Giving the impression he was the one who sabotaged the car. Reason why Maripaz was angry with Checo.

She appears in Monse's room ignoring the obvious streaks on her face about to blow up Monse's world when she gets the "boom". "You are too late I already know what you and Victor did!" slap!

     For a moment Ingrid was stunned though she recoverd quickly with a sob story on how she loved Victor and when he showed her interest she was unable to refuse. Besides she needed to feel love, her parents death took that from her, and here it was being offered. How was she to say no to that? Her contrition growing when she preferred to leave then see the disappointment in her Tio's face!

     Monse heard her father's words echo on how he had to take of his brother's daughter, their is no one else. Ingrid keeping up the farce had started packing,betting on Monse stopping her. She did. Warning her this is a one time offer, and a guarantee of not revealing what she did.

Telenovela-World:  Re: Missed Episodes! Fill Me In A Little Please!  [USA, 10/16-19/2007]  Author: Mau. (---)  Date:   10-16-07 16:06 PDT

     Well here is what I remeber.

     Monserrat slaps Juan Jose cause she gets mad at him for telling her that he is willing to answer and to tell her whatever she wants to know about him.

     Mari Paz and her abuelo who is called Don Lupe and Daniel are okay after the accident, and they do go the hospital, but nothing else is wrong them. When they get home, Chequo sees them, and he sees that he is Mari Paz, and he gets mad.

     Ingrid tells Victor that she is willing to give what he wants...and later we see them going into a apartment..and then later Monserrat comes in to the apartment, and she sees them together...she is shocked and she leaves the apartment. When she gets home she goes to her room and she is crying. She doesn't tell anyone what she saw. Ingrid, later comes into her room, and after Monserrat tells her what she saw, Ingrid starts crying and saying how now she will leave the house, cause if Monserrat tells then everyone will hate her, and later Monserrat feels bad, and she tells her that she won't say anything.

     One day, when Daniel and Mari Paz are in her she, Chequo and his friend who is called Pelos, or something like, plan to hurt Daniel, and they do, because as Daniel leaves, people from his gang beat him up.

     That same day, Victor goes to Monserrat's house to ask for Monserrat's hand in marriage, well he is mostly doing it, cause Eloisa (his mother) tells him that he has to marry Moserrat. Monserrat comes down, and says that she would never marry him, and she slaps him. She then tells everyone what Victor did, and they are all shocked. Meanwhile, Juan Jose is there, and he wants to see Monserrat, and he ends up going in, and Monserrat uses him to get out of the house, and she leaves with him. Victor follows them, and he gets into an arguement with Juan Jose, but Monserrat and him leave. Anyway, later Monserrat leaves alone, and she goes somewhere else, and she tells Juan Jose that she just used him, and that should never be with someone like him.

     Daniel is okay, and they are going to investigate who beat him up. Yolanda tells Mari Paz that she thinks that it was Cheqo who planned everything. She goes to Chequo and she slaps him and tells him that this time she will tell the police.

     Victor keeps on wanting to make up with Moserrat, but she doesn't want to. Then, later when he is asking for forgivness again, and Monsserat sees Juan Jose and she kisses him in front of Victor.

     That is basically that most important things that have happened in the novela.

     Re: I can give you a summary of what has been happening  Author: Mauricio (---) Date:   11-14-07 14:57 PST

     Okay, I give you a summary. Its a good thing that I have kept the recordings on my TiVo.

     Thursday's episode:

     Monserrat tells Juan Jose that she is not the same person she was, and then she asks Juan Jose to leave. She tells him to forget her. She tells him to never come to look for her.

     Later, Mari Paz is telling Monserrat that Monserrat should be happy, because she has other important things, like a family who loves her.

     Norma gives Don Lupe the bank account paper, but he doesn't accpet it.

     Antonio brings a wheelchair to Monserrat, but she doesn't want to use it.

     Monsserat cuts her cloths.

     Chequeo makes it so that Don Lupe sees Mari Paz and Daniel kissing in Don Lupe's house.

     Monday's Episode:

     Monserrat is about to take the pills that Ingrid gave to her, but then she regrets it, and the pills all spill on the floor. Later, Victoria comes in, and Monserrat is sleeping, and she thinks that Monserrat has sallowed all the pills, and she starts crying and calls out Monserrat's name, and Monserrat wakes up.

     That investigator is talking to Pili and she tells the investigator that she suspects that Ingrid could be to blame for Monserrat's accident.

     Monserrat is as Joaquin's clinic, and she feels her legs, and she is happy to be feeling her legs.

     That investiagator is talking to Juan Jose, and finally Juan Jose remebers that camera, and Ingrid hears them, and she goes with them to the house.

     That girl named Ximena goes to Monserrat's house, and all of Monserrats friends are there, and giving Monserrat a party, which I guess its because she is starting to feel her legs, and Ximena tells her that Ingrid is trying to steal Juan Jose from her. Toñito sees Ingrid wtih Juan Jose, and goes and tells Monserrat this.

     Tuesday's episode

     At the house, Juan Jose can't find the tape where Ingrid is filmed causing the accident. Ingrid gets scared and she wants to find the tape before Juan Jose. She sees Victor outside and tells him that there is a video.

     The tape is actually with Norma and in Norma's purse, but Claudia spills all the stuff from Norma's purse, looking for something, and the tape falls to the ground.

     Juan Jose and Monserrat are able to see each other because Mari Paz helps them, and Juan Jose tells Monserrat that he will wait for her.

     The investigator tells Antonio that he doesn't think that Juan Jose is to blame, because he has helped him alot, and that he has other suspicions (I think he suspects its Ingrid also).

     Its Mari Paz's birthday, and Claudia goes and gives her a present, but Don Lupe knows its from Claudia, so he takes it away from Mari Paz, and he leaves the house, and thats when Mari Paz sees Claudia and Don Lupe together.

     I hope this summary helps.


Ingrid’s story to her “tios”

Telenovela-World:  Let me get this Straight...  [USA, 12/12/07] Author: KFavela (---)  Date:   12-12-07 16:28 PST

     So Ingrid told her "tios" that JuanJo raped her and that no pudo evitar que le hiciera el amor, but she told JuanJose that she gave in because of love...? Perhaps its me but I dont get it, what's the story? Is it that she was raped or that it was reluctant and inevitable consent?

     Re: Let me get this Straight... Author: BW (---) Date:   12-12-07 17:22 PST

     Ingrid spins the story depending on who is listening. She told her Tios the story that will get the most sympathy from them---a rape. Which ensures Monse not telling them about her and Victor the first time.(Because Monse might have broke her silence accusing her of going after JuanJo like she did with Victor.)

     With JuanJo, telling him that her words were at fault,shifted the blame to her yet makes him feel guilty.Ingrid is good at reading people which allows her to construct the right story to get maxium impact.

     I just dislike intensely how she throws the words "making love" out there! Hearing that from a rape victim might make me suspicious! JMHO.

     Re: Let me get this Straight... Author: Jona (---) Date:   12-12-07 18:07 PST

yeahh she tells a different story depending on the person, which makes me think that she is a bad liar because if those people we're to meet and discuss this the lie would come out.


Telenovela-World:  Re: I Missed It Too! Please Someone Tell What Happened Friday! Thanks!  [USA, 1/11/08] Author: Mauricio (---) Date:   01-13-08 16:21 PST

     Here is a short summary of what happened:

     Ingrid sees Juan Jose and Monse together and gets mad and gets more mad when she sees Monse holding a flower. Monse mentions later that the flower was given to her by Bruno.

     They have a meeting where Juan Jose shows them photos that he took. Victor acts very rude and starts saying how horrible the photos look. Juan Jose gets mad and wants to beat him up, but Gonzalo seperates them.

     Elosia wants to convince Joaquin to get revenge on Claudia. Joaquin gets mad and throws Eloisa out of his office.

     Antonio wonders what secret Victoria has.

     Joaquin goes to see Claudia and wants to kill her. Claudia begs for him not to do it. Joaquin decides not to do anything to her and he leaves. When he gets to his office, he starts saying that he is weak.

     Sebastian is saying how Claudia deserves for him to hate her.

     Claudia goes into the room she rented from Rosa and its raining outside and then someone who we don't get to see appears and wants to kill her.

     Thats where the episode ended.


Telenovela-World:  hey can someone...  Author: Alfie (---)  Date:   02-24-08 20:39 PST

     give me a clip notes version of the *main things* that have happened these last two weeks. i havent been able to watch, just know some things but i watching again and im lost. if everyone has the time please write a summary, id really appreciate it. thanks.

     Here is a summary.... [USA, 2/11/08-2/22/08]  Author: Mauricio (---)  Date:   02-25-08 15:58 PST

     The main things:

     Ingrid met this guy name Christian. She has been cheating on Juan Jose with him. Christian hid some diamonds in Enrique's house, inside what looks to me as a pillow. He left for those 7 months that passed in the novela, and just recently, well on Friday's episode, returned for them and for Ingrid. Oh, and also the baby was born. Rosa has been taking care of it, since Ingrid doesn't seem to care about it.

     Monse accepted to be Bruno's girlfriend. Juan Jose is jealous seeing them together. He even saw them kissing. He wants to get a divorce. He still hasn't told Monse yet. Bruno has been really nice with Mosne, and he asked Monse to marry him, but Monse hasn't really said anything, yet. She told Juan Jose about marrying Bruno, and thats probably why Juan Jose decided to get a divorce.

     Rosa found out that Ingrid's her daughter. Antonio told her, that his twin brother (Octavio) was the one who was with her that time after Antonio left Rosa for Victoria. So Octavio is Ingrid's father. Octavio made Antonio swear to never tell Rosa the truth and to take care of Ingrid. Antonio and Rosa had planned to tell Ingrid the truth, but for some reason Rosa didn't want to, and ended up agreeing to being Ingrid's maid. Ingrid treats her badly, though, she doesn't seem to like her at all.

     Antonio has been acting like a jerk, has been spending alot of time with Rosa. He came back home, but sleeps in a seperate room. Victoria is suspecting that Antonio might go back with Rosa.

     Sebastian and Yolanda have beeing seeing each other. Eloisa, being evil, hates Yolanda, and thinks Yolanda is just like Claudia. Yolanda found out that she is pregnent, and she hasn't told Sebastian. She doesn't think Sebastian loves her.
