Terribly Good
8 April 2002 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is the coolest Mexican soap opera. A moron wrote that it was bad one and I got really angry with that... The soap opera is beautiful and fun... When I watched I loved it because there's a real good actuation. Gabriela Spanic couldn't be more perfect for the role. Ines Rodena is one of my favorites soap opera writers, she also wrote the hits Maria Mercedez, Marimar, Maria La Del Barrio.
