Salomé is a Mexican telenovela produced by Juan Osorio for Televisa in 2001.[1]

On October 22, 2001, Canal de las Estrellas started broadcasting Salomé weekdays at 8:00pm, replacing La intrusa. The last episode was broadcast on May 17, 2002 with La Otra replacing it the following day.

Edith González and Guy Ecker starred as protagonists, while the leading actress María Rubio and Sebastián Ligarde starred as antagonists.


The first part of the story takes part in the 1980s. Salomé, who was abandoned as a child by her mother, is a cabaret dancer who works at the cabaret Salón D'Rubí. Her best friend, Karicia, also works as a dancer.

At the Salón she meets Diego Duval and his brother-in-law, Julio Montesino, a married man. They begin an affair and she gets pregnant. Lucrecia, Julio's mother, is obsessed with having a grandson. She proposes to Salomé money for giving them her child when he is born.

Salomé accepts and moves in to the Montesino's mansion, much to the displeasure of Ángela. Ángela is Julio's wife; she has a fatal illness and is unable to bear children. Manola, the maid of the house, cares for Ángela and is also displeased with the situation.

It is later revealed that Manola and Lucrecia are half sisters. Arturo is Julio's father (although it is later discovered he isn't his biological father) and is very understanding of Julio's situation. Salomé changes her mind and decides to keep the baby after he is born.

She runs away with the child and is aided by Hipólito and Piro. Piro's sister, Martha, is married to Hipólito and they have two children. She is unhappy with her life and abandons her family. Salomé, whose real name is Fernanda, escapes Mexico City and takes with her Hipólito's kids (with his permission).

Salomé raises all three kids, who she registers as being born the same day in order to conceal her own son. The kids are called José Armando, José Miguel and José Julián. She marries a man for convenience and uses his last name, Lavalle. When the boys grow up, they decide to go to college in Mexico City and she is forced to move back.

She had never told the kids that two of them were not hers, that she used to be a dancer, or who their father was. Ángela has since died and left Julio's son the majority of her large fortune, much to the displeasure of Diego. Julio is raising his friend's daughter, Karla, because they died in a plane accident.

Julio is the Dean of the University that the boys attend and he also a partner in a construction company. Eventually, Salomé and Julio meet and they start their romance once again. Mauricio, Julio's business partner, is also in love with Salomé.

Mauricio Valdivia is mentally disturbed and causes a lot of trouble when he partners with Rebeca Santos, who is in love with Julio. They constantly plan to ruin Julio and Salome's plan of getting back together. Karicia has become an alcoholic and the Salón D'Rubí is owned by Diego Duval, who has turned it into a strip joint.

Fernanda helps Karicia turn her life around and she goes to live in Fernanda's house. Karicia also adopts a boy known as "El Guerejo", who took care of her when she was an alcoholic. José Julián falls in love with Karla, and José Armando marries Natalia, who has an incurable disease.

José Miguel falls in love with Romina, who used to dance at Salón D'Rubí. José Julián and Karla face many obstacles, mainly Mercedes who, after sleeping with José Julián (he thought she was Karla since she was wearing the costume and mask Karla was supposed to be wearing), makes him believe she is pregnant.

He almost marries her but then learns the truth. Natalia has an incurable disease but nevertheless gets pregnant because she wants to be able to leave a symbol of her and José Armando's love behind. José Miguel has to cope with Romina's lies about what she does for a living.

Julio and Fernanda marry but then Arturo is murdered and Fernanda is accused of Arturo's murder and goes to trial. She is found innocent after Rebeca confessed she did not really see her murder Arturo. Manola, who had begun a romance with Arturo by then and since Arturo was divorcing Lucrecia, found written in her diary (by Arturo), the identity of the killer - Diego Duval. In the end Diego dies, Fernanda reveals the truth about who Julio's son is (José Julián) and she and Julio ends up together.
