Role: Rosalinda del Castillo Romero de Altamirano/Paloma Dorantes
Plot: Thalía plays Rosalinda, a poor but very beautiful 20-year-old flower seller who dreams of becoming a singer. Instead she marries Fernando José, a talented piano player who comes from a rich and powerful family.
But all is not well in Rosalinda's world: Her evil and jealous stepmother-in-law Valeria plots against her and reveals to Fernando José that Rosalinda's mother had, 20 years earlier, killed his father (though Rosalinda's mother was falsely accused of the crime).
Upset over the revelation, Fernando José walks out on a pregnant Rosalinda, who, shortly after, prematurely delivers their daughter Erika, whom Valeria then kidnaps.
Distraught over losing both her husband and baby, Rosalinda begins to lose her mind and is placed by Valeria in a mental hospital. But soon after her arrival, the mental hospital catches fire. While Rosalinda is able to escape, she is badly hurt and begins to suffer from amnesia.
Because of her amnesia, Rosalinda is unable to reach out to her family and let them know she survived the fire — which they assumed she perished in. Lost and without an identity, she is taken in by a creepy old man who turns her into thief.
While breaking into a house she meets its owner, Alex Dorantes. He's a music manager who takes her in and gives her the new identity of Paloma Dorantes, also helping transform her into a famous singer (dreams coming true!). The two soon fall in love.
On a date night Rosalinda/Paloma and Alex, unknowingly, go watch Fernando José play piano. Upon hearing him play the piano Rosalinda/Paloma is overwhelmed by her past memories; she runs out of the theater and is hit by car.
While in the hospital, Rosalinda realizes who she really is. Luckily, she is able to continue her career with her new identity and eventually, after even more drama (like discovering that Alex was actually kind of a bad guy, finding out Fernando José had married her cousin, and when she almost married a creepy fan), she reunites with her daughter and remarries Fernando José.
Campy telenovela rating: 9.5 out of 10.
Craziest plot line: EVERYTHING. There is NOTHING in the entire shows plot line that is even remotely possible.
