Making Consuelo Love-Dizzy

One of the light humors in the el cuerpo del deseo (second chance) telenovela is theatrical Simon, the second son of Abigail, the house keeper. Simon was also a protege of the 'late' Pedro Donoso, and worked in his factory. He is reputed for his hyperactive libido with women. He doesn't spare the maids in the house.

Simon got entangled with a lady in the factory, called Consuelo, far advanced in experience and wiles. He has a great passion for her. Started keeping late bnights with her by going to movies and the cinema. I could smell fierce battle between this duo in the future. But for now, Consuelo is the soul-mate of Simon.

Simon is passion-drunk for Consuelo, that he literally bathed himself with cologne in one of his special visits to her. Even Abigail wondered where he was going with the overdose of cologne that was so dizzying. He laughed and confirmed that it was puposed to make Consuelo dizzy with love.

It is said that Valeria later fell in love with Simon. This would naturally spell trouble between Valeria and Consuelo for the soul of Simon. I would not be surprised if Consuelo conspired with Andre Korona to battle Valeria and Simon later in the telenovela.

Another Consuelo here may be playing a villain just like the one in the gardener's daughter (la hija del jardinero) telenovela.
