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.

Latinas Shared The Movies And Shows That Made Them Feel Seen

Nickelodeon

It’s no secret that over the past few decades, people of color worked to fight for equal representation on screens both big and small. While, of course, there have been great POC and LGTBQ relationships on television there’s really been a spike in the spectrum of representation since our early years watching television and learning about relationships.

Recently, we asked Latinas on Instagram what shows and movies featured their favorite most diverse couples.

And the answers threw us for a time loop!

Check them out below!


“Maria and Luis on Sesame Street.”- melissa_phillips71


“Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner is The Bodyguard, they reminded me of my parents and they loved to play the soundtrack.” –millenialmarta


“The leads in Someone Great, Jane and Michael the virgin and the lesbian relationship Gentrified. It’s been 30 years and I finally found characters I can relate to.” –allyss_abyss_

“Most definitely, “Brooklyn 99”: two female Hispanics as regulars and a white person playing a Hispanic (Andy Samberg’s character’s last name is Peralta, which is a Spanish surname).” – seadra2011

“Holt and Kevin(and Rosa Diaz) have changed the way people have perceived gay couples and gay people. Nine Nine!” –chaoticbiguy


“The first on-screen presence that made me feel seen/represented period was @justinamachado ‘s character on One Day At A Time. A Latina veteran struggling with her mental health while trying to juggle school, work, love, and family? And as a main character? Whew….“-vieja.metiche

“Taína! It was on Disney if I remember correctly?? Then @americaferrera in sisterhood of the traveling pants as Carmen. 😭❤️ her life was like mine. Growing up in suburbs but never really having a place culturally.. but my girlfriends still had my back no matter our background.” –chessy__a

People Are Sharing Their Personal Experiences Of Feeling Shame Over Their Bisexuality And It’s Pretty Heartbreaking

People Are Sharing Their Personal Experiences Of Feeling Shame Over Their Bisexuality And It’s Pretty Heartbreaking

mitu

It’s no secret that more than most sexualities, the bisexual experience is often invalidated and largely stigmatized. Often times, people who are bisexual are forced to shoulder the social stigmas from partners, friends, and family who believe that they are hiding their homosexuality, are sexually promiscuous, and or more likely to spread sexually transmitted diseases.

Curious about the effects of the stereotypes, we scoured Reddit for personal experiences with the sense of shame some people feel attached to their bisexual identity.

Check out what we found in one thread below.

https://www.reddit.com/r/bisexual/comments/4r4ha4/does_anyone_else_feel_shame/

So, I’m bi and finding some videos on the youtubes about bisexuality and started watching videos of people saying being bi doesn’t exist. I also noticed on some apps like grindr and a few others who seemed to have a ‘problem’ with my being bi for some reason. Which makes me feel bad about being bi :c

“I was really insecure about my sexuality for a long time… I still kinda am but I’m mostly ok with it Now. Sometimes I even love it. I’m not really ashamed of it anymore, I’m just incredibly introverted and very private so I’m not open to most people about it. It took me several years to come to terms with my sexuality and accept myself and I still struggle with it sometimes. I used to wish I could just be straight. But now I feel like if there was something I could do to make myself straight, I wouldn’t do it.”-Strawbeerylemonade

“No I don’t feel bad about who I am. If someone doesn’t like me for who I am, I don’t want to date them.”- EnLaSxranko

“There is a lot of misconceptions about us in the gay and straight community. I don’t feel shame but I feel awkward. No matter who I choose to be with I feel I need to explain. I’m currently in an amazing opposite gender relationship with a queer woman who I adore and we encounter bi-phobia. Today I kissed her at Pride. We are in love and queer.
I hold my relationships with my male partners in high regard and will never be ashamed that I loved them (because of their gender). So like it or not, as queer people my love for my girlfriend will be political. oh well. I’m used to it and so is she.”- torontomammasboy

“Kinda. I find it embarrassing for some reason, kinda like if I had a skin condition or something. I actually came out to my parents yesterday and they haven’t disapproved or anything but I feel really weird that they know now. Kinda exposed feeling. It’s weird. I also get the whole shame part. I don’t want to be public about my same sex attractions in the sense that they are almost purely sexual in nature. I would probably not date a guy. I’m ashamed I have sexual feelings for men but really wouldn’t date them (I could do a BFF with benefits thing but it wouldn’t be romantic at all and I don’t think I’d ‘fall in love’).”- CompartmentalizeMyBi

“I’m 25 and am currently having my homophobic mother staying with me until she finds her own place. I’ve came out to her a couple of years ago, but she dismissed it as “foolishness” and has basically been in denial about it ever since. I basically have to tip-toe around her if I want to have another guy in my own apartment. That combined with my own internalized homophobia and biphobia makes it hard not to feel ashamed of my own attractions.” – acethunder21

“No I do not feel any shame. Mostly because I actually don’t give myself any label at all. And why I don’t give myself one is because honestly, I hate labels. For jobs, for relationships, for sexuality. It all is just not something I want to deal with. Now I’m not saying that any of the the labels you give yourself aren’t any real to you. You’re reality is just as personal to you, as mine is to me. And I don’t want to get in the way of how you want to live. And that’s how everyone should really treat each other about their sexuality. I’m nearly 17, (6 days from now) and male. I’m in love with my first, and 7-month boyfriend. A lot of my friends and family know this, and I didn’t feel any different coming out about it to them than when they did not know. When wondering about your sexuality, learn it like you would playing an rpg game. Go out and explore, and find what you like, and make it yours. Hopefully my tired 1:30 am rant meant something. Have a happy night and 4th if your in the good ol’ U.S. Of A like me.”-PopsOnTheRox

“I stopped giving a f*** about what people think eons ago. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has them. Yours is the only one that should matter to you. Make yourself proud and you’ll find people respect and admire it.”-StroppyMantra
