Synopsis

Mariana Villareal finds herself homeless after her father dies and her stepmother takes over their estate. She escapes to Mexico City and a priest asks a millionaire named Alberto Salvatierra to care for the young girl.

Don Alberto takes pride in educating the girl but his own son, womanizer Luis Alberto tries to seduce her but the father orders him to stay away from her. Esther, Luis Alberto's cousin, moves into the Salvatierra mansion with the hopes of marrying him. Luis Alberto finds Mariana's charm to be the reason for him to change and falls in love with her.

Trivia

  • One of the most successful Televisa's telenovela, which was sold in over 150 countries around the world.
  • Emilio Azcárraga Milmo, one of the founders of Televisa, proposed to Valentín Pimstein to produce a telenovela in Miami, where writer Inés Rodena lived. Pimstein and Rodena wrote the script for a telenovela called 'Perdí mi baby'. Azcárraga later changed his mind and decided he would want the telenovela filmed in Mexico. Pimstein then decided to change the name of the project to 'Los ricos también lloran'.
  • The show premiered at 18:00 h, but due to huge audience was transferred to 21:00 h.
  • Maria Zarattini wrote the adaptation of the first chapter. When Pimstein decided to extend the show due to huge success, Zarattini refused because she thought there is no more story to tell and finally quit. Instead of Zarattini, Pimstein gave the job to Venezuelan writer Carlos Romero who wrote the second part of the telenovela. The second part was inspired by radionovela 'Cuando se regala un hijo'.
  • Some of the actors were in conflict with Televisa and The National Actors Association, which prohibited 14 actors to participate in the show in the second part of the telenovela. Pimstein didn't wrote off the characters, he just replaced them with other actors.
  • Guillermo Capetillo played Verónica Castro's son in 'Los ricos'. Few years later, he played her husband on 'Rosa salvaje' and a few years after that he played her boyfriend in 'Pueblo chico, infierno grande'.
