These Are The 9 Craziest Telenovela Suegras Ranked From Least Evil To Worst Human Being In Existence

As much as we want to have una familia perfecta, sometimes mothers-in-law come into the picture and you can’t exactly live with (or without) them. However, no matter how horrible you might think your suegra is, at least you don’t have to deal with some crazy telenovela drama. There’s nothing crazier than telenovela suegras because they have all kinds of tricks up their sleeves. Take a look at our list of the worst telenovela suegras. Who knows, you might give your suegra a big thank you when you are done with this list.

9. Gabriela Acevedo | “Fuego en la sangre”

Having a demeaning mother-in-law can upset the balance of a familia unida, but what if that same woman is also meddling in the lives of her own kids? ¡Ay,Dios mío! ???? ???? Gabriela Acevedo left a bitter taste in the mouth of her future sons-in-law because she felt nobody was good enough for her daughters. At the same time, she was doing everything she could to control and sabotage the lives of her own daughters.

8. Graciela Giacinti | “Lo que la vida me robó”

Graciela Giancinti makes Kris Kardashian look like a saint. This telenovela mom-ager conned her own daughter into marrying for money to save her family from financial ruin. Repeat after us—money should not be the basis for a marriage, Graciela. Maybe she isn’t too different from the Kardashian mom-ager.

7. Grace Remington | “Dame chocolate”

Grace Remington is anything but sweet in the telenovela “Dame chocolate.” A conniving businesswoman determined to get *the* secret recipe from aspiring chocolatier Rosita Amado. Remington plots her way into the business, going as far as to kidnap a pregnant Rosita because she just isn’t good enough to make good chocolate.

6. Lilian | “Vino el amor”

Money is the root of all evil, especially when that root is planted in the soil of a vineyard. Vineyard owner David is crushed by the death of his wife and doesn’t tend to his property like he used to. His sinister mother-in-law Lilian wants to (what else?) steal David’s fortune and plots against him when David starts falling in love with a mysterious newcomer to the property, Luciana. It really is one of the most underhanded plats in any telenovela but she is still not the worst suegra.

5. Begoña Flores | “Santa Diabla”

4. Francisca Cano | “Santa Diabla”

Santa Diabla’s list of disrespectful mother-in-laws continues with Francisca Cano, a woman who is intent on keeping up with appearances. Introduced as a superficial woman, she is shown as someone who should be feared and kept a watchful eye on. ???? She will do whatever it takes to get whatever she wants no matter who is hurt along the way.

3. Catalina Creel | “Cuna de lobos”

Thirty years later, fans still get scared when they hear the name Catalina Creel. That’s how you know your role as one of the most villainous mother-in-laws is cemented in telenovela history. Creel evoked fear in her audience, stopping at nothing to make sure her son kept his inherited wealth in tact. Killing her husband, faking blindness in one eye, abducting a child = all things Creel (more like cruel, amiright?) was determined to do for that ???? ???? ????. Who can forget her great reveal that left our abuelas quaking.

2. Fátima Linares | “Esmeralda”

via GIPHY

Laura Zapata plays the villain so well that it’s hard to keep rooting against her. In a plot line that is typical of telenovelas, Zapata’s character is the aunt of doe-eyed Esmeralda and wants to marry off her daughter to hunky Jose Armando for (you guessed it) a big inheritance. Somehow, she turns into a good person by the end of the telenovela. However, we don’t really buy it.

1. Soraya Montenegro | “María la del Barrio”

All hail the QUEEN of telenovela memes. We couldn’t close this list out without mentioning Soraya Montenegro. Although her youth and sassiness don’t come off as your typical crazy telenovela mother-in-law, she def still has resentment for the girlfriend of her stepson. Get your papitas with Tapatio sauce ready, because you’ll want to watch this scene over and over again.

A Doorbell Camera Captured The Terrifying Moment A Neighbor Saved A Family From Their burning home

A family from Arizona has tragically been without a home since New Year’s Day. Fortunately, however, thanks to the swift efforts of a neighbor, they still have each other.

On New Year’s Day, the Salgado family was asleep in their home in Avondale, Arizona when they heard a frantic knock at their door. Nicole Salgado’s husband, who lived in the home with their children, opened the front door to find her neighbor shouting at her to get her family out of the house. It was on fire.

The Salgado family woke up New Year’s Day to find their house in flames.

“We were all asleep,” Salgado explained to CNN in an interview. “Then all of the sudden around 7:30 in the morning, we hear banging on our door and our doorbell is going off and we kind of get scared.”

Their neighbor, Carolyn Palisch, was there telling them to get out of the house. Footage from the family’s home security video shows their neighbor running past flames to get to the home.

“He opened the door and all I heard was our neighbor Carolyn saying your house is on fire you have to get out,” said Salgado.

Salgado, who is a mother to four children, hurried to gather her children. Together, all of them escaped the burning home safely. “It was just kind of frantic at first, making sure we got everyone out and the dogs out,” she explained. “Then once we realized the full extent of it we were just in shock as we watched our home burn.”

Sadly, the Salgado family lost all their belongings in the fire

Salgado explained that the roof of her house collapsed moments after they escaped. According to CNN, firefighters at the scene claimed that if the family had still been sleeping at the time the roof had collapsed they would have inhaled the smoke and likely passed out immediately.

We are so thankful to just be alive,” Salgado explained in a post to her TikTook page. She also included doorbell camera footage of the moment their neighbor came to the rescue.

Salgado’s video has been liked nearly 7 million times on TikTok.

“Never did we think it was going to blow up the way it did. But we are so grateful,” Salgado explained. “We are so glad it did for Carol, to show how amazing she is. If it wasn’t for her it’d be a totally different story. We feel so thankful to her. We’re always going to consider her family. She not only saved us, she saved our kids.”

Salgado says that the cause of the fire is still under investigation and shared that her family has created a Go Fund Me account to help them rebuild their lives.

This Is The Ultimate Telenovela Watch List To Help You Get Through The Holidays

La Reina Del Sur / Netflix

Ok, it’s not as if any of us need an excuse to sit down and binge watch our favorite telenovelas. I mean we probably all already have a long list of favorites growing up watching them with our moms, abuelas, and tías.

Melodramas are part of our DNA, and we thrive watching the often times overly passionate scenes on TV with our favorite celebrities. One of the best things about telenovelas is that they have clear villain roles and come with a clear beginning and end. The short stories help us escape into an alternate reality where everything is a life-and-death decision. 

And thanks to a surging pandemic, we’re spending more time than ever at home in front of our screens, looking for more content to watch. So why not work on this epic list of telenovela content to help get you through the holidays.

La Reina del Sur

La Reina del Sur was (and still is) an absolute game changer that’s exactly how it will go down in history. The series that starred Kate del Castillo is about Teresa Mendoza, a woman who gets dumped into the dark world of narcos unknowingly. She soon finds herself being persecuted by the Mexican cartel and escapes to Spain only to revolutionize the drug-trafficking world in Europe. There was no intention to make a sequel, but Telemundo caved after fans requested it for years and in 2019 released another chapter of the saga. Both seasons are available on Netflix now.

La Patrona

Aracely Arámbula is one of our Latin telenovela queens. And one of her greatest telenovelas is La Patrona, in which she portrays Gabriela, a single mother who works as a miner.

Of course, being the only woman who works in the mines brings out the bullies who make her life a living hell. However, things escalate further when she crosses Antonia Guerra. Things take another turn when she finds out that Gabriela Suárez is her grandchild’s mother, and she goes to terrible lengths to get rid her.

It’s a strong classic telenovela story that features two strong women who are determined to complete their goals.

Betty, En NY

Yo Soy Betty, La Fea was a phenomenon that captivated our hearts when it first aired at the turn of the century. The Fernando Gaitán original gave us a lesson about loving oneself and not judging others by their physical appearance.

Telemundo remade the Colombian hit in 2019 and cast Elyfer Torres as the titular character of Betty en NY. The network updated the series to modern times, but the heart of the story remains. One unique aspect of the particular transformation that Betty receives is that they kept her hair curly throughout, making a statement that curly hair is also beautiful.

Rebelde

If you’re obsessed with Elite (along with the rest of the world), then you can think of Rebelde as a way less intense early 2000s version of it. It’s a remake of the Argentinian series Rebelde Way, and it’s set in an *ahem* elite boarding school.

The show follows the relationships of a group of wealthy and scholarship students who, in true Breakfast Club fashion, join together despite their differences and start a pop band. Oh, and another fun thing: They all dress like they’re about to star in a Britney Spears music video. It’s truly amazing.

Pasión de Gavilanes

If you are looking for something steamy to watch, look no further than Pasión de Gavilanes. The Colombian classic pairs three hot men with three gorgeous women, and there are lots (lots) of passionate scenes between all the couples involved. Telemundo remade this telenovela again as Tierra de Reyes with a whole new cast and abs galore.

La Que No Podía Amar

Another Televisa production, La Que No Podía Amar, completely changed the telenovela rules. Our protagonista, Ana Paula, is not your typical heroine as she is not one to take orders from anybody. Our galán is also not the usual lead man as he mistreats everyone around him due to an accident that left him unable to walk. Despite their clashing, they somehow bring out the best in each other and create a magical love.

¿Donde Está Elisa?

A telenovela meets true crime thriller? Sounds too good to be true, but it’s basically the premise of this Telemundo classic, ¿Dónde Está Elisa? 

As the family is engulfed in knowing Elisa’s whereabouts, deep, dark secrets start to unravel. How did Elisa disappear? Who is behind her disappearance? Is she dead or alive? The characters will ask themselves these questions, but the culprit of all this drama might just be at home.

La Usurpadora

This list would have a big gaping hole if we didn’t include the telenovela to end all telenovelas. La Usurpadora stars Gabriela Spanic as twin sisters Paulina and Paola, who trade places when the latter abandons her family and escapes with her love.

Paulina is the noble sister who ends up taking care of the Bracho family and finally making them feel like a family unit again. This sweet and bonkers story is one you have to watch if you call yourself a telenovela fan. Televisa adapted the story in 2019 with Sandra Echeverría as the twins. However, this time, it is set in the political world. This miniseries is available on Amazon Prime Video.
