The most popular post on this blog I have posted was about Victoria Ruffo, a Mexican soap opera star who was in Mahahual the first week of April and filmes a commercial on the beach here. I will repost.
Vicroria Ruffo, known as the “Queen of the Telenovela” was in Mahahual the first week of April to film a commercial on the beach here in Mahahual.
I was going down the malecon on April 2, and I looked over and there was a commotion on the beach, and a lot of people were gathered. Come to find out Victoria Ruffo was in town to film a commercial.
Ruffo began her acting career in 1980 starring in the telenovela Conflictos de un Médico, under the direction of Ernesto Alonso, and continued her career acting in Al Rojo Vivo. In 1983, Valentín Pimsteín gave her the opportunity to star as the protagonist of La Fiera.
Ernesto Alonso offered her lead roles in the telenovela Simplemente María. She has since acted in other telenovelas such as Abrazame Muy Fuerte . 2005 marked her comeback in the telenovela La Madrastra.
After La Madrastra, she performed duties as the First Lady of Pachuca, with her husband acting as mayor while continuing to act in the soaps El Nombre del Amor and Victoria and Triunfo del Amor.
After Triunfo del Amor, Ruffo focused on her family and doing theater plays, specifically Dulce Pajaro de Juventud. She also went to support the senatorial campaign of her husband, Omar, who eventually won a seat in the senate.
In 2010, she was named as one of Latin America’s 50 Most Beautiful People.
Ms. Ruffo is perhaps the most famous soap opera star in Mexico, and is known throughout the world. When this article was first posted it got response from all the over the world. I was very surprised how she was famous throughout Latin America and even in Europe.
Thanks for reading.
