parodied. Televisa remade the novela as a limited miniseries in 2019 starring Spanish actress Creator/PazVega as the role of Catalina Creel.


Added DiffLines:

* HotterAndSexier: The 2019 remake of the series had Paz Vega in the role, who was 43 at the time and a lot of emphasis was placed on the actress's attractiveness and had her dress in more provocative and revealing clothes.


Added DiffLines:

** Televisa tried their hand again in 2019 this time making a limited miniseries with 25 episodes instead of the typical 100+ of regular telenovelas. However, there was quite a bit of controversy in the Latin-American blogosphere due to casting Spanish Creator/PazVega over a Mexican actress. Regardless, any actress cast in the role would have a hard time living up the legacy of María Rubio's take on the character.


* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Catalina Creel is one. While it's true that she ends up killing herself at the end after causing Alejandro's dead by mistake, she is never caught or punished for any of her crimes. This is even more evident in the remake, where Catalina ends up living happily with Leonora's son.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeKnowsTooMuch: Ultimately the reason why Catalina killed Carlos at the beginning of the story. He realized Catalina had faked her eye injury all those years and he had blamed José Carlos unjustly.
