Gringos Launch English-language Telenovela Featuring Univision-Size Boobs

A Bay Area’s news station, Kron, this week announced the launch of Hacienda Heights, a weekly telenovela that will premiere Dec. 3. The new show, say its creators, features an all Hispanic cast in an English-language soap opera. Per a news release:

The story is about the trials and tribulations of the families in the fast growing city of Hacienda Heights. The conflicts that arise between the political, wealthy and the working middle class families are universal and extremely current in today’s world. The stories are rich and are portrayed fantastically by its talented cast.

I’m not sure if the weekly series will be able to compete with Univision’s highly successful telenovelas. But at least they seem to be casting actresses with the right amount of breasts talent, including Bibiana Navas (top) and Tara Ciabattoni.

  1. not awesome,….seriously?
    but hey let’s keep the exposed latina skin to a maximum reinforcing the stereotype…let me guess poor girls from Hacienda Heights meet Sugar Daddy and live happily ever after

    Hey, they do NOT look like Televisa/Univision actresses at all! These -at least- are not blond! (but yes, the boobs are familiar territory. What about Telemundo?)

  3. Paz says:

    I’m disappointed that Telemundo was bought by NBC, so now they’re producing their own novelas. They’re showing one now called “El Rostro de Anali” and it’s a complete Latin telenovela stereotype. There’s a guy with his shirt off for no reason, or a guy with a fake looking mustache, or once there was a guy wearing a red silk bathrobe. Come On!

    “The conflicts that arise between the political, wealthy and the working middle class families are universal and extremely current in today’s world”: I am happy that someone was finally capable of synthesizing the plot of telenovelas. And in such an elegant manner! How come I didn’t think of it first?!?!

    Uh… these don’t sound like telenovelas to me, which put the emphasis on the “novela”, not the “tele”. Telenovelas have a plotline and work towards resolving the conflicts within the tale. Yeah, they have their big boobed rich girls (originally played by Argentinian actresses, thus the assumption they’re all blonds) and the plots are often contrived (but, then, so were most of Dicken’s and Balzac’s), and the plot lines usually do involve class conflicts, but they are not open-ended tales of “the trials and tributions in the fast growing… blah, blah”. That’s just an old-fashioned American “soap opera”, a very different genre. The only thing unique about this U.S. soap opera I can see is that it has latinas in the cast.

    Its only a telenovela if the girl who doesn’t have blonde hair and works for the wealthy family, probably as a maid, finds the will and then becomes rich. The will that her grandmother hid from her, because she had a child out of wed lock, or that her evil sister switched babies at the hospital.

    I wish the Latinas i know would dress like that to work.
