This scene is literally ON FIRE.

So, this is Soraya Montenegro (played by Itati Cantoral). She's the main antagonist in the iconic telenovela María la del Barrio.

You may remember her for the famous "¡QUE HACES BESANDO A LA LISIADA!" line that made her a legendary telenovela icon. It's not polite to call people crazy, but Soraya is literally batshit insane. Like, for real.Her demise is equally batshit insane.
