Main Cast Members:
Jessy Mendiola, Jason Abalos and Jake Cuenca


Watch the teaser video below:


STORY:
Maria Mercedes is a poor girl who is abandoned with her brothers and sister by her ambitious mother. Because of the lack of support from her perennially drunk father, she is forced to raise her brothers and sister on her own, working in the streets of Mexico City selling lottery tickets and flowers.

Santiago del Olmo is very sick and knows that he is dying. One morning when he is in the garden, he sees María selling lottery tickets in the street. He comes up with the idea to marry her just to upset his political aunt Malvina after his death as a personal revenge. He gains Maria's trust and friendship, proposes to her, and she agrees. When Santiago dies, María became the head of the family, making Malvina's ire burn stronger. According to his will, Malvina, her son Jorge Luis and her daughter Digna must live there, if they want to inherit any of his fortune. Jorge Luis is a sad man since the murder of his wife on his wedding day. His younger sister Digna is a very religious woman who has never dated a man at all and is afraid of almost every thing, especially her mother.

After María moves into the del Olmo household, she falls in love with Jorge Luis, who is weak against his mother's will and always does as she wants.

Malvina makes it her life's mission to antagonize María. When she finds out that María loves her son, she pushes him to marry her in order to get the money back. She plans that after a few weeks he could make her give him control over the whole fortune and after that get divorced.

Jorge Luis and María get married but they do not share a room nor live like a traditional married couple. Within time, Jorge Luis starts to develop a real and deep love for María. On the other hand, María has another foe, Mistica, a sultry and selfish woman. She used to be Jorge Luis' girlfriend, but then left him heartbroken to marry a wealthy man, Sebastian Ordoñez. She realizes that she still loves Jorge Luis and is furious to know that he is married and falling in love with Maria. She promises herself that she will get Jorge Luis back and starts to help Malvina get rid of María.

María meets Magnolia, a beautiful, rich, and sophisticated woman who is her real mother. Magnolia has now remarried and has another son, but she regrets deeply having left her children. She gains María's trust and starts to help her daughters and her sons, especially Guillermo who is in jail and is the only one who recognizes her. Her true identity remains a secret for María and her other siblings, Rosario and Andres, and all the things she does for them have to be hidden from her new husband, Rodolfo (an architect who is Rosario's boss and is also a friend of Jorge Luis' family) and their son Gustavito (which is a youngest half-brother of Guillermo, Maria Mercedes, Rosario and Andres).

Magnolia teaches María good manners and how to seduce her husband. After Sebastian Ordoñes drops a high class party where he will give a prize to Jorge Luis and then tries to seduce María, Jorge Luis moved by jealousy and by the sight of the beautiful and well-dressed María, finally starts to fall for her and they sleep together. Soon María learns she is pregnant.

After María's father passes away, she and Jorge Luis go on a vacation trip that goes terribly awful because of the intervention of both Mistica and a local lifeguard who hits on María. Jorge Luis makes up his mind and asks María for a divorce as soon as they arrive back to Mexico City. However, Malvina has other plans. She tries to drive María crazy with the help of Cordelio, the butler, and puts her in an asylum. María manages to escape from the asylum and hides from the police in Doña Filo's house, a good friend from her poverty years, until Jorge Luis ask the police not to pursue her any more.

With Cordelio as her ally, Malvina tries to kill María but all fails. Malvina realizes Magnolia's influence and begins to wonder if she could be María's mother. She tells this to her new husband, Rodolfo Mancilla, who in turn goes to María's old house (where Rosario and Andres still live) and asks to see a picture of their mother. He at once recognizes her and later confronts her, arguing with her and throwing her out. Magnolia nevertheless survives by helping out a French tailor who once recognized her talent and pushed her ambitions (which clashed with the need to raise her family; she chose her career over them).

Far from María, Jorge Luis realizes that his feeling for her have grown so strong that he can’t live without her any more. He asks for forgiveness and she returns to the house where they live as a real married couple.

Nine months later María gives birth twin girls, one of which dies a few days latter. Jorge Luis put an end to Mistica's intentions for good after Mistica attempts to pin a pregnancy on him (the child was actually her husband Sebastian's). When he discovers that his mother still hates María, he decides that it is time to leave his mother and raise his family with Maria. He stands up for himself for the very first time against his mother's wishes and leaves. Malvina goes crazy and dresses as María used to in her poverty years and runs to the street where she starts to sell lottery tickets and clean windshields. She is caught and put in an asylum.

Magnolia tells the truth to her offspring. María at first is shocked by this revelation but her resentment shatters and she accepts her mother with love. Rosario is nevertheless disgusted and filled with rancor, a situation that remains until her old boss Rodolfo Mancilla agrees to accept them as his (step-)children. With this, the sisters make peace and Rosario can finally accept the courtship of Ricardo, a younger friend of Jorge Luis', without any remarks by María.

Since María and Jorge Luis only had a civil wedding, they have a great church wedding in the Basilica de Guadalupe with all their friends and relatives, closing the scene after they say "I do" and putting and end to the novella with a romantic kiss. (Script from wikipedia)

Judy Ann Santos is furious, wants politicians who are involved in pork barrel scam to be penalized

Judy Ann Santos’ newest TV-show in Kapamilya Network entitled “Bet On Your Baby” is soon to be aired.  According to the actress, her whole family is scheduled for a vacation before the premiere of her new project in ABS-CBN.  It just happened that her real-life husband Ryan Agoncillo was hospitalized lately that’s why their vacation plan was changed.

“Dapat ’di ba magbe-vacation kami pero since nagka-dengue siya, naka­­bakasyon naman kami sa hospital but we’re still going to go on a vacation next week,” said Judy Ann with a smile.

Meanwhile, Juday was so disappointed with the continued controversies about the hot issue on pork barrel scam.  She said “Sana ay ginagamit ng mga pulitiko ang pera ng gobyerno para sa mga mamamayan at hindi para sa sariling kapakanan lamang.

“Kumbaga, we try to be responsible naman with your job dahil hindi mada­ling magtrabaho lalo na ’pag may pamilya kang binubuhay, may mga bata kang gustong pagtapusin ng pag-aaral. So, nakaka-frustrate kasi nagkataon na hindi lahat ng pulitiko, hindi ko naman nilalahat, but I don’t want to name names because mahirap naman na mag-point ng finger. Pero ang sa akin lang, kung sino talaga ang may kasalanan, pagbayarin at mag-explain,” explained the brilliant actress.

“Ako, ilang taon ko binuno ’yung kaso ko. Eight years akong may kaso with the BIR (Bureau of Internal Revenue). Sa akin lang, the BIR was just doing their job, collecting taxes and they give it to the government. ’Yung government ngayon ang magbibigay ng pera sa mga pork barrel. Parang point lang is, kung kami pinu-push n’yo at kinakasuhan kami kapag may konting digits na hindi nabayaran, bakit hindi n’yo kasuhan ’yung mga pulitiko na malaking, malaking digits ang kinuha sa pera namin?” she explained.

“Darating din tayo diyan. Hindi naman kaila­ngang sapilitan. Kusa n’yo po ‘yung malalaman kung sino man po ‘yung nagpapatibok ng puso ko,” she added.

Judy Ann Santos' transfer to other TV Networks is finally over

Written By Vince Bitanar on Thursday, September 12, 2013 | 9:15 PM

Rumors about the issue that Kapamilya star Judy Ann Santos would transfer to a rival TV Network of ABS-CBN has finally over. Last Wednesday, Juday officially signed new contract with the kapamilya network together with her talent manager Alfie Lorenzo.

It was reported recently that Judy Ann was planning to leave the Kapamilya network and she would venture to work in other TV networks but it did not happen.

“Baka at the end of the day parang hindi rin naman pala magiging okay. Parang doon kasi lumalabas ‘yung usapan na ‘Ah! Nasilaw sa ganito.’ Para sa amin, doon muna tayo makipag-settle sa unang option. Kung hindi matuloy, eh ‘di saka tayo pupunta sa ibang option,” explained Judy Ann.

“Ang pangit naman ng magiging dating ko sa mga network producers ‘di ba kung lahat sila kinausap ko ’tapos wala naman akong tinupad na usapan.”

Eventhough she had received offers from other TV networks, Juday still prefers to stay on her home network.

“With regard to the talks na mangyayari if ever sa other networks, nandiyan naman kami para makinig but you know since I’m a Kapamilya, hindi ko naman puwedeng itanggi na first option will always be ABS-CBN. Well, hindi naman ako magpapaka-plastic, lahat naman tayo kailangan naman tayong kumita ng pera. Pero at the end of the day, siyempre iisipin mo rin kung ano ba talaga ‘yung mas makakabuti sa ‘yo and at the same time, saan ka ba magiging masaya,” said Juday.

Her new reality show entitled "Bet on Your Baby" is expected to be "on-air" soon.
