“María la del Barrio” is part of the Marías Trilogy (“María Mercedes” in 1992, “MariMar” in 1994) starred by Thalía. The Televisa production, which is a remake of “Los Ricos También Lloran,” is considered to be one of the world’s most popular Telenovelas, and has been broadcasted in over 180 countries.

The story evolves around a young girl, “María”, who comes from a humble background and falls in love with a wealthy boy, “Luis Fernando de la Vega Montenegro” (Fernando Colunga). The girl (Thalía) has to deal with the torturous personality of “Soraya Montenegro” (Itatí Cantoral) and go through a series of unfortunate events to get her happy ending next to her love, and her kids “María de los Ángeles” (Ludwika Paleta) and “Nandito” (Osvaldo Benavides).

Reunions among Telenovela stars are not often promoted in México, which is why we are making a big deal out of this one. 20 years after “María la del Barrio” went off the air, mother and daughter reunite, and they are just like fine wine, looking better with age.

Two days ago, Thalía and Ludwika Paleta ran into each other, and they didn’t miss the opportunity to document the event on their social media. Memes started flowing right after Thalía posted a picture on her Instagram with the following caption: “Destiny reunited me with my little ‘daughter de la Vega’ @ludwika_paleta #LaDelBarrio is so happy right now!” Ludwika also promoted the reunion on her twitter account mentioning: “What a great reunion @thalia!! Many years have passed…And we look just the same…”
