I never watched this novela, only read about it, in "The Heart that Bleeds" by Alma Guillermoprieto, a fascinating collection of articles on Latin America; but I think it's worth a comment. It was at the center of one of two sensational events that occurred in Brazil in December 1992. On the day before President Fernando Collor de Mello was impeached for corruption, the actress Daniella Perez, who had a small role in this show, was stabbed to death by the actor Guilherme de Padua, who played her obsessively jealous boyfriend. The story of Yasmin's real-life murder by Bira electrified Brazil and practically shoved Collor's disgrace right off of page 1.
