Starring Colombian-American actress Diane Guerrero, “Adelita” is an excellent contemporary example of the old genre of radionovelas.
Growing up, telenovelas taught me about a woman’s right to choose her own destiny. Something I included when I made my own, “Princess of South Beach.”
Re-watching the hit Colombian telenovela ‘Yo Soy Betty, La Fea’ offers this Costa Rican fan plenty of reflection opportunities.
Thanks to our abuelitas, moms, and tias, we’re nostalgic for these trendsetting, classic telenovelas, the ones that defined the genre for decades to come.
