La otra (English: The Other Woman) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Ernesto Alonso for Televisa in 2002.[1][2] It aired on Canal de las Estrellas from May 20 to September 20, 2002. The telenovela stars Juan Soler, Yadhira Carrillo, Jacqueline Andere and Sergio Sendel.

This telenovela was a moderate success in Mexico, airing at 8pm in the summer of 2002, right before the (usually) highest-rated hour of 9pm. Over time, however, it has grown in popularity amongst telenovela fans of all kinds, thus making it a cult classic of sorts. La otra was awarded the TVyNovelas Award for Best Telenovela in 2003.[3]


Carlota Guillén (Yadhira Carrillo) lives in Querétaro with her mother, Bernarda (Jacqueline Andere), and her older sister, Eugenia (Mercedes Molto).

Bernarda pretends to be a respectable lady, while, in fact, she used to be the lover of Leopoldo Guillén, a wealthy man from Guadalajara. Carlota is the latter's daughter and the half-sister of Román (Alejandro Ávila), who is Leopoldo's only legitimate son. When Román finds out that his father has divided his inheritance between him and the daughters of Bernanda, he plans revenge.

Carlota meets Álvaro Ibáñez (Juan Soler), a young doctor from Mexico City. Álvaro has a younger brother named Adrian (Sergio Sendel), who was adopted by his parents. In spite of the fact that their parents have always treated them both the same way, Adrián hates Álvaro.

Bernarda knows that when her daughters marry, she will have to hand over their share of the inheritance to them. Not wanting to lose control of the money, she always opposes any man approaching her daughters.

Nevertheless, Román manages to seduce Eugenia, leaving her pregnant. Eugenia dies due to complications from childbirth and, at the same time, Bernarda is led to believe that her grandchild was also born dead.

Upon hearing about the death of Bernarda's daughter, Álvaro thinks that the one who died was Carlota. Heartbroken, he leaves the city and goes to live with his parents in Morelos. There, Álvaro will meet Cordelia Portugal (Yadhira Carrillo), who is identical to Carlota. Taking advantage of it, Cordelia will take the place of The Other Woman.
