What Telenovela Character Should You Be Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Let’s face it: everyone has seen at least one telenovela that they would happily watch for hours on end. Granted, it’s a guilty pleasure; telenovelas aren’t known for their intellectual stimulation. But, have you ever wondered what kind of telenovela character you would be, given the chance? Look no further, babes, because we’ve consulted the stars, and we know exactly where you belong in telenovela land.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, you’re pretty well-aware that you have a reputation for being a hothead. And, you own it! You’d love to think that life is just one big adventure, and all it takes is for you to put yourself out there and embrace it. As far as you’re concerned, there’s no point in doing something unless you’re going to put your all into it. That being said, sometimes you come across as a little too stubborn for some people’s liking – once you get fixed on something, there’s no way you’ll change your mind!

Luján from Rebelde is your telenovela twin, Aries. You’d have some serious superstar potential, if only for the fact that your diva-like attitude would make it seem that way. After all, you just need to fake it until you make it! You’re unafraid of starting outrageous feuds, even if it means being a bit rude, which makes you all the more the perfect candidate for popstardom. 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

As an earth sign, you’re practical and well-grounded, and you don’t take no for an answer. Taurus, you like to be surrounded by beauty. But, just because you like pretty things doesn’t mean that you don’t know how to put your head down and get your hands dirty. You’re unafraid of commitment, and it’s because of that you have the capacity to stay on the same projects for years. Funnily enough, this also means you’re good at making money.

So who’s your telenovela doppelgänger? Why, none other than Betty Pinzón, from Yo soy Betty, la fea. You’re unperturbed by the fact that you’re a little less glamorous than your peers, because you know that you can get the job done. Despite the fact that you’re generally pretty rational, you can’t help but fall in love with your irresistible boss. Though, it’s not really your fault that he’s irresistible, right?

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

As the sign of the twin, most people are never really sure what they’ll be dealing with, when they’re with you, Gemini. You can go to expressive and quick-witted, to serious and thoughtful at the drop of a hat. Part of the reason for this is that you’re just so inquisitive – you feel like there’s so much to see and do out in the world, you pretty much suffer a chronic case of FOMO.

You have not one, but two telenovela counterparts, Gemini: Paola and Paulina from La Usurpadora. No one knows what to expect of you – will you be off partying with your many lovers? Faking paralysis? Or trying to right the wrongs of the world? To be honest, some people think that your changes in personality almost feel like you become a different person entirely.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram / @dramalatinoo

Cancer, most people would describe you as a tenacious and highly imaginative romantic at heart. You’re loyal to a fault, and that makes you not only the perfect friend, but also a reliable life partner. Being the type of person who cares deeply about family, you’d like to think that one day you could build your own little family, in whatever shape or form that may be. At the end of the day, you just like to keep the people you care about close to you.

Instagram / @dramalatinoo

The character that’s closest to your sensitive nature, Cancer is Maria Salomé, from Gitanas. Imagine being a young gypsy woman, caught between the world of the man you love, and the people and home you’ve known your entire life! While you’re not necessarily the biggest fan of drama, at the same time, the journey to experience true love is an experience you’d never be able to pass up.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Pinterest / @mia williams

As a creative and warm-hearted person, Leo, you always effortlessly draw people to you. To be honest, paired with your self-confidence, most people aren’t sure whether they want to be with you, or be you. That is, unless people catch you on a bad day: sometimes you can come across as just a little bit arrogant and self-centered. Although, your innate generousness usually wins those people back.

Instagram / @yuriclubchile

Leo, you would make the perfect Reny, from Volver a Empezar. Your dreams of meeting Chayanne aren’t just simply to do with lust – though it’s certainly a part of it – but, also to do with your dreams of being famous. As someone with a flair for the dramatic, and who thrives under the spotlight, you’d definitely be able to cope with the ups and downs of being famous. The real challenge would be figuring out how to deal with whatever love triangles you would get caught in along the way!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram / @teresaysantiago

Virgo, you’re a hard worker who always pays attention to the little details. Since you have such a methodical approach to life, you never leave anything to chance. You’re one of those kinds of people who, even though you’re soft on the inside, you have a hard shell on the outside that’s hard to break through. If you ever have to make a hard decision, you always use logic, rather than your feelings.

Instagram / @michellekdc

So who is your telenovela twin? It’s La Reina del Sur’s Teresa Mendoza, the unexpected drug lord. Who are we kidding, of course you could succeed as a drug cartel kingpin! You’ve got a real handle on the efficiency needed to run an international drug distribution business – and the stamina needed to keep working to avoid the police and other dangerous competitors. 

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram / @lamismaquecantaybaila

We all know you for your graciousness and fair-mindedness, Libra. You always try to be as diplomatic as possible, because you want to keep the peace. That being said, you have trouble keeping your mouth shut if you see some injustice happening – you want to make sure that everything is right in the world! You’re a bit of a non-conformist, and you have no problem with being the person to embrace the outcasts.

Instagram / @juanaso.photo

Your telenovela twin is Andrea from La prepago, Libra! If anyone had the smarts to balance life as a journalist and a sex worker, it would be you. Even if things ratcheted up a notch, and you got caught in a scandal that put you in grave danger, you would definitely triumph at the end of the day.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram / @rubiladescarada_

Being the passionate and assertive person you are, Scorpio, you’re known for being good in bed. People are drawn to your determination and decisiveness. When the going gets tough, you get going with your resourcefulness! You’re a great secret-keeper, and you’ve got a bit of a mysterious allure about you. Sometimes, though, all you’re masking is a really jealous nature, since you can get suspicious pretty easily.

Instagram / @rubiladescarada_

Rubí, the titular character from the infamous telenovela, is Scorpio personified! Given the opportunity, you could easily fit into Rubí’s shoes nicely … especially since you love being caught in a dramatic love triangle! Although, you should probably watch out for any potential car crashes. And staircases. Those things just generally don’t end well for you.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram / @cafecomaromabrasil

Sagittarius, you are one idealistic soul. You’re at your happiest when you’re traveling, and you hate the thought of being constrained. Sometimes your free spirit can get you into trouble, though, and you might find yourself promising more than what you can deliver, and suffering due to your impatience. But, good things come to those who wait! If you have the wherewithal to stand through the hard times, you’ll be rewarded for it.

Instagram / @cafecomaromabrasil

Have you ever seen Café, con aroma de mujer, Sagittarius? Because you bear a striking resemblance to the heroine, Teresa Suárez, or, Gaviota, as she’s more commonly known. Working outside as a harvester would be exactly your cup of tea – or coffee – until you have a passionate, whirlwind affair with a mysterious European lover. You’d be unafraid to set out into the world to find him again, even at the peril of your own safety! Just don’t hold it against your lover, if he decides to get married in the meantime. Trust us, it’s all the result of a misunderstanding.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram / @angeliqueboyermundo

We all know that you’re a know-it-all, Capricorn. Unfortunately, you can sometimes be pretty condescending. On the flip side, you’re responsible, disciplined, and you’ve got a really good sense of self-control. As much as you’d like to think you’re above these kinds of things, you do have a weakness for nice stuff – you like quality things, and to get quality things, you need to have money. Hey, who says that money can’t buy happiness? 

Instagram / @angeliqueboyermundo

You would probably most find yourself identifying with Teresa, the main character from the telenovela of the same name. There’s no way you’d stand for living in poverty your entire life. And if that means marrying your way up, then that’s what you’d set your heart on doing. Just don’t ever forget where you came from, Capricorn, because that’ll get you into trouble.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram / @sonriehogaza

Aquarius, as a deep thinker, you can come across as both shy and eccentric – and quiet and energetic. But these contradictions in your personality only make you that more endearing! At the end of the day, you’re an independent person, who has the smarts to easily solve problems. You see the world as a place full of possibility, no matter how jaded you might get with everything that’s happening.

Instagram / @sonriehogaza

Your telenovela doppelgänger is definitely Valentina Villalba Rangel, from Soy tu dueña. People can easily see you being a successful businesswoman, with your smarts. On the other hand, because you can be pretty emotionally closed off, it’s not hard to see you also having to deal with the ins and outs of love. 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram / @marimar_novela_fanpage

A regular fish out of water, you’re a compassionate and intuitive type, Pisces. Most would say that you’re an old soul, which complements your capacity to be creative and artistic. At times, you can become so wrapped up in yourself that you fall into the trap of casting yourself as a victim – but you’re so much more than that! In fairness, it can be hard to feel anything but hard done by when you have a habit of trusting people just that little bit too much. 

Instagram / @marimar_novela_fanpage

Pisces, you would make the perfect Thalia, from the Mexican telenovela, Marimar. You’d happily live your life on the beach with your grandparents – that is, until you meet your Sergio and know that life will never be the same for you. Just be wary of any jealous mother-in-laws. You know the trope; and if so many mother-in-laws are evil in fictional television shows, there’s got to be some basis for it in real life, right?

Missouri Woman Seen Holding Pelosi Sign Faces First Judge In Series Of Court Dates For Federal Charges

homegrownterrorists / Instagram

Update January 21, 2021

A Missouri woman named Emily Hernandez had a court hearing in St. Louis after her involvement in the Capitol riots. Hernandez, 21, is facing several federal charges after participating in the deadly Capitol riot.

Emily Hernandez is facing the music after storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

According to KSDK, Hernandez, who is from Sullivan, Missouri, has been released without bond after her first hearing in St. Louis. She has been ordered to stay in the Eastern District of Missouri until her next court date in Washington. Part of the terms of her release is that she is not allowed to travel to Washington other than for her court date.

During the hearing, she was recorded saying, “I’m sorry, I’m nervous.”

Hernandez is facing the following federal charges: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct which impedes the conduct of government business, steal, sell, convey or dispose of anything of value in the United States, disruptive conduct in the Capitol buildings, parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol buildings.

Original: After a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Jan. 6, people immediately started identifying the intruders. Videos have been circulating and people are steadily contacting the FBI to expose them. Instagram page @homegrownterrorists is one of the leading forces in identifying the rioters.

On Jan. 6, people stormed our Capitol building and the American people are demanding justice.

Images of people storming the Capitol building and looting the offices of members of Congress startled people around the world. One of the safest places in the world was overrun by far-right Trump supporters attacking the democratic process. Americans are demanding justice and working together to identify and report as many people to the FBI that were at the Capitol.

The Instagram page is unapologetically encouraging followers to identify people at the Capitol.

Five people died as a result of the riot, two of them were police officers. The Instagram page, run anonymously, is encouraging people to share the photos to their stories to increase the reach. The account might not have any legal power, but it is having some success. There has been more than one person identified through the IG page that has led to people losing jobs and being arrested by the FBI.

The account has disappeared multiple times but always comes back.

The mystery person running the account has expressed concern over their safety. The account has been suspended by Instagram after being reported by multiple people. There has even been some talk about them receiving threats of violence via DMs.

The person who runs the account has mentioned it randomly on their stories but with no real detail. According to recent stories, the person behind the account doesn’t want to antagonize the people sending threats.

The owner of the account did say that they have been contacted by Instagram about the account.

A tweet from HomeGrownTerrorists caught Instagram’s attention and the account was reinstated. However, there was a backup account to keep functioning in case the original got deleted. IG and the account owner reached an agreement where they get to keep the main account and the backup account was permanently banned. No questions asked.

If you want to help or be connected to the cause, you can follow this page on Instagram.

There are a lot of people left to identify and the nation’s law enforcement is bracing for more violence. Capitols in all 50 states are on alert for possible attacks and the National Guard is being mobilized in big numbers for the inauguration. We are not out of the woods when it comes to the threats that have been made.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”
