's in it for me?
My friend Manuel needs a photographer for his venue.
How may I help you?
I want to know if this Victor Frenk is clean
or if he's mixed up in something.
This is my mom.
And that's you! In her belly!
Why does it say "1950"?
I was born in 1952.
The birth certificate you have is bogus.
That means I'm actually 23!
If I'm not mistaken, you are my father.
Nora said you wanted to make me an offer.
This is going to be the area's new happening bar.
Don't worry, I'll handle everything.
I can't sing, Fanny.
I could ask the producers to let you use a playback.
No, Fanny! I won't do playback.
If you do it well, nobody's going to notice.
Who was the guy you were talking to?
An acquaintance in the business.
Congratulations on the new show.
The song you debuted was wonderful.
Do you think it's funny to see me make mistakes?
Why'd you say that?
Something terrible is coming...
...that could cost you your life.
Anel, I'd like to apologize. I don't know what I said wrong.
Not at all, Mr. Manuel.
On the contrary, I should apologize to you.
Jose hasn't been himself lately.
That outburst was really troubling.
I know... but we also have to understand.
He's had a hard time recovering his voice
after his bout of pneumonia... and he's very irritable.
I'd love to have him perform here a few nights a week,
but he needs to recover first.
I'll make sure to help him
and get him back to the Jose Jose we all know and love.
Hi, Anel! How are you?
Well, I'll be around if you need me.
It's a good time to bring in international investors.
Echeverria is doing a great job.
It's also a great time for you to approach Kiki.
It sounds awful,
but you have to strike now that she's vulnerable.
I'd say she's as unpredictable as ever.
Whip her into shape, Javier.
Make her your girlfriend. I'm sure you can do it.
I'd love to, Carlos. And I'll try one last time.
But if she doesn't feel the same,
there's nothing we can do.
It simply won't work.
Lorena, sit down.
I can't. I've wasted too much time.
I missed my doctor's appointment
and I won't be able to make it to my English class.
-I'm so anxious! -Lorena, please calm down.
We've both received some very shocking news today.
Yes, and I still haven't weighed the damages.
I want us to try to have a father-daughter relationship.
Although, I know we can't make up for lost time.
That's precisely the problem. The time we've lost.
You're young! You have plenty of time!
Why don't we go away together
so we can get to know each other better?
Let's go somewhere.
Sorry, but I can't right now.
I've already lost a year of my life.
I can't lose another week.
I'll be right back.
A second coincidental run-in?
I must admit I sought you out on set yesterday.
Well, this is a happy coincidence.
Happy for whom?
You didn't let me finish yesterday.
I wanted to invite you to a party.
The kind where men have fun and women charge a pretty penny.
Look, I don't know what you think of me,
but leave before I make a scene
to signal how rude you're being.
Spare me the innocent routine, Anel.
Just recently I saw you
precisely at one of those events.
-Is that your friend...? -Please lower your voice.
Is he an old friend?
He's not my friend. I don't know him.
That's not what you said yesterday!
But he's not a friend.
I know him... from my past.
From the parties.
I don't do that anymore, darling.
I'm going to talk to him.
No, don't. There's no need.
I know how to deal with people like him.
Then why'd you tell me yesterday that he was an old friend?
Because I was ashamed.
This is certainly rude, my dear listeners!
After disappearing for a long period of time,
Jose Jose showed up on a pre-recorded show
to offer a live performance...
but he used a playback!
You heard right! Playback!
His fans were shocked, alright!
Could it be that the two-bit singer's voice
has been ruined due to his vices?
And guess who had to save him once again?
I really don't know what women see in him.
In addition to being ugly and a bigamist, he's depraved!
We have his wife Kiki on the line to support our claims.
Kiki, thank you for taking our call.
How are you?
Alfonso, thank you so much for granting me this time to speak.
My separation from Jose Jose has been very difficult on me.
Oh, honey. You don't look well at all.
Don't worry, Mom. I'm fine.
No, you should move with me to Satelite.
That way, I can look after you and you'll recover.
I don't want to be a burden.
Besides, you're too old to be looking after me.
Children will always be children.
Who better than me to look after you?
So... I wanted to ask you for a favor.
Maria is reopening her café. You remember it, don't you?
Well, she turned it into a bar.
She wanted to know if you could attend the grand opening.
I don't feel well. I'm still recovering.
No, she doesn't want you to sing.
You just need to cut the ribbon and stick around for a bit.
She's family, honey.
You're right. I'll be there.
Thank you so much, sweetheart!
Please eat something! I need to know you're well!
I need you to recover!
Look at all this food! Are you trying to fatten me up?
I say this because it truly has been complicated.
Mr. Jose Jose hasn't looked after me, his marriage...
There's unfinished business between us.
I've yet to hear from Mr. Jose Jose.
I say this because I want your listeners to know the truth
about Jose Jose, the big star.
They should know what he's like as a husband.
Those are the facts.
I am an Herrera-Calles
and everyone knows what an honorable family I belong to.
<i> Thank you for placing</i> <i> your trust in us, Natalia.</i>
<i> I've always been </i> <i> on your side.</i>
I always saw how he used and took advantage of you,
and if I'm honest, that's just not fair.
Someone as important as you shouldn't be treated like that.
I send my love to your listeners.
Thank you for your time.
It's good to know there are people we can trust.
By the way, I heard you're going to debut a new album.
What's this? What are you doing here?
I'm studying English.
I really don't get you.
If I'd been told to take time off,
I'd be at the beach, beer in hand.
Yeah, you would. You're lazy.
Don't be so mean, Rosie the Robot!
I already told you I have to get back the year I lost.
Again with that? You're so stubborn!
You know how you could help me?
Coming up with ideas.
What have you been up to this last year?
-You really want to know? -Yes.
Well, I fell in love with a psycho,
was kicked off my soccer team,
I was cheated on, then it turned out I wasn't the father
of the baby I thought was mine...
Fell in love with a psycho...
What are you doing?
Well... I'm making a list.
Maybe something good can come out of it.
Maybe I'll get some ideas.
Kicked off your team.
I was cheated on.
I'm glad you're here.
Few have the guts to face me. You're brave.
You have to understand.
I went to work for RVG because I like music.
The terrible things you say about Jose,
one of our best artists, does not inspire much confidence.
And yet you're here
because you want to know about the label's strange dealings.
Not the label's.
Maybe it's someone working at the label.
Everyone else works on albums, promotes artists
and makes music.
I used to be like you.
Just as idealistic.
But they don't call it a hard knock life for nothing.
That may be, but I'm still clean.
Then you won't want to know about what Pedro Salas
and Victor Frenk are up to.
With all this chaos, I've been getting anxiety attacks
because I realized there's so much I want to do and haven't.
My list keeps growing and growing...
Could you please stand up?
It'll be quick.
-Stand up. -What's going on?
A while ago I spoke to Pedro about Claudia Lozano.
Better known as Blondie.
-Have you heard of her? -Yes.
I didn't think much of it because Pedro and Blondie
are not compatible.
They're like oil and water.
Though sometimes oil and water end up in the same container...
I could do without the metaphor.
Blondie isn't with Pedro by choice.
She's with Pedro because she was asked to keep him happy.
Who asked her to?
What are you doing? What are you looking for?
My suit, but I can't find it.
Your suit? Why do you want it?
You should be getting into your PJs.
I'm attending a ribbon cutting at my cousin's bar.
What? Are you crazy?
You should be resting, sweetheart.
I told my mom I would. Everyone's expecting me.
I won't be long.
Honey... you don't know how to say no, do you?
I promised my mother, Anel.
Okay. Just promise you won't be long.
Are you coming home tonight?
Of course. I'll even give you a massage.
Hey... why are you wearing so much perfume?
I'm wearing the amount I usually wear.
Are you feeling alright?
You have a fever.
Are you drinking the vitamin shakes?
Make sure you do. They're good for you.
Don't be long.
Convincing him wasn't as difficult
as I thought it would be.
Plus, Carmona owed me one.
I helped him out with the company.
He needed some land, and I gave him a hand with that.
So when are we going to talk about my album?
That's why we went out to dinner together, right?
Yes, but relax. Everything's interconnected.
Carmona opened a huge venue at a well-known hotel.
-Really? -He's doing great
and I thought...
Why don't you perform there?
That sounds great!
First I need an album, though.
No, we're going to do it the other way around.
You'll perform first and then you'll work on your album.
People need to become familiar with you as a singer.
Take this to table two right away.
Alicia, take a bottle of champagne to table six.
We're almost full.
You look very nervous. Calm down!
You should be happy! The place is packed!
This place has never been this full.
That's because everyone's here to see Pepe...
but he's not here!
You know he's very busy.
But he promised he'd be here. He'll be here.
Yes, but what if something happened to him?
Don't scare me!
Right. I'm sorry.
I'm so nervous.
Go keep yourself busy.
I'm going to make all your dreams come true.
Javier, I know we have a history together.
We dated at one point.
But I'm not looking for anything this time around.
I just want your friendship.
But time might favor me in the end.
Who knows what could happen.
Such a great phrase!
That should be the title of my album.
<i> Time Might Favor Me in the End</i> by Natalia Herrera-Calles.
We're selling drinks like we would during happy hour.
The place will be packed as soon as Jose Jose arrives.
Right, but why isn't Pepe here?
Relax. Jose's a star.
They always show up late.
You know what? I'm going to call...
No, you need to have fun.
People who come to bars can feel the vibes the owners give off.
If you're having fun, they'll have fun too.
Smile and work the room.
