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

Santa Diabla / Telemundo

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”

In this Telemundo telenovela, Cuban-Venezuelan Beatriz Valdés plays Begoña Flores, perhaps the most monster-in-law on this list. Begoña sleeps with her son-in-law (oh helll nooo) and hides many secrets. Like, if you are willing to sleep with your own daughter’s husband then you are definitely hiding more than just some secrets.

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.

‘La Chona’ Is Everywhere And Here’s A Quick History About When The Song First Hit The Ariwaves

@AndyG93_ / Twitter

Contaré la historia de una famosa canción, “La Chona.” See what I did there? 😎 Los Tucanes de Tijuana dropped “La Chona” decades ago, but it only got its own trending hashtag recently, and people are for real risking their lives to be La Chona of the Internet. Tbh, the song has been a banger for years but it is only now getting the full recognition it deserves thanks to the Internet.

First a history lesson.

Los Tucanes de Tijuana is a Mexican gem. 🇲🇽

They are basically worldwide ambassadors para música Norteña. Today, the group is made up of Mario Quintera Lara, David Servīn Raya, Alfredo González González, Gustavo Labrada Valenzuela Tomás and Alberto Herrera.

They’ve been selling out crowds since 1987.

Mario Quintero Lara, the lead singer, founded the group. Most of them were born in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, but they all went to Tijuana to build their following and career.

Since then, they’ve gone on tour throughout México, the Americas and Europe.

The band has sold more than 15 million albums to date, and even have several gold, platinum, and multiplatinum records. They’ve sold out venues like the Dodger Stadium, the Astrodome, and Estadio Azteca. They’ve definitely always had a place blasting from your mami’s car radio.

They’re a twelve-time Grammy nominated band.

They finally brought home a Grammy at the Latin Grammy Awards in 2012, and have dozens of other awards. “La Chona” isn’t even their biggest hit. “Mundo de Amor” and “Mis Tres Animales” beat “La Chona” in popularity.

Though, we might need a recount at this point.

They were so popular, the government sponsored one of their songs to promote tourism.

The Ministry of Tourism for the Republic of Mexico, through its advertising agency, asked the band to write a song called “Mexico Es Tu Casa” to welcome more visitors into Mexico’s booming tourism economy.

Their music videos are hilarious. 🤔

And maybe also problematic. They almost always feature lead singer, Mario Quintero Lara, wooing a minimum of four to six young, attractive guapas. The funny part? In one telenovela video, Lara ends up saving a man having a heart attack (because he walked in on him sleeping with his girlfriend), by seducing the Angel of Death (who is also a super hot young woman), and both the woman he just slept with and her lover thank him. 😂

“La Chona” hit airwaves in 1994 and it’s still teaching us life lessons.

The story goes that the teacher always plays songs in English, and when someone asked her to play “La Chona,” she had them start translating it into English and posted a video of them singing to YouTube–which of course went viral.

“La Chona” has never made headlines like this.

People have started competing in the viral Internet challenge #LaChonaChallenge. All you have to do is hop out of a cruise controlled, moving car and try to keep up while you bust a move. The trickiest part has been hopping in and out of the car and people are eating sh*t. Don’t try this at home.

It started out as the #InMyFeelings challenge, but Latinos got concerned.

These are valid questions. Las Chonas are E V E R Y W H E R E  these days.

Latinos reached their fullest expression of La Chona real quick.

CREDIT: @AndyG93_ / Twitter

People started playing “In My Feelings” and then switching to “La Chona”, finding the right hat and bevvys to get their Chona on.

Even Snoop Dogg caught the “La Chona” craze.

I’d give him a solid C+ TBH, but an A for effort. He actually jumped a few times como La Chona!

Dads became cool again.

CREDIT: @beeaanneey / Twitter

Dads everywhere started jumping out of cars y hijos everywhere les empiezan a gritar, “”Bravo, bravo, Chono, nadie te puede igualar”!

While moms were not going to let you take the risk.

Yup, she’s holding her daughter inside the car by the hair. Classic Mami, being so overprotective it hurts.

Hermanas pranked their hermanitos.

I salute you, woman. This is gold. Her little brother just hopped out and started to dance and she drove off saying, “Bye, Loser.” :’) 🙏🏾

Mientras, people comen todo la mierda.

Seriously, you have to see this for yourself. Just search the hashtag #LaChonaChallenge on Twitter and try not to die laughing. But also, know that you would probably do the same.

The Internet then went ahead and made new mashups to “La Chona”

The Drake one is by far the actual worst, on purpose. Whoever recorded this should be banned.

And the Childish Gambino mash up is the winner.

Childish Gambino es el Chono real. Somehow, the beat is absolutely perfect, and this YouTube user was able to speed up some parts to help him nunca pierde su trote.

 Los Tucanes have actually issued a warning that the challenge is dangerous.

But at the same time, they’re regramming their favorite videos to their public channel sooooo, we know you like it Tucanes.

Oh, and los animales are competing with humans as well.

I mean, this dog literally got on a scooter and started scooting al ritmo. That’s like if one of us started dancing while walking on all fours. Challenge not accepted.

The award goes to you, perrito.

Unless you think you can top that?
