Do not miss it!
Always a Woman: Angelica you debut as the host of the Show dating calling “The mask of love” (Estrella TV)What has this project meant to you? What can you tell us about him?
Angélica Vale: Well, see, I’m very happy and excited. I must admit that when they told me you would like to do a dating show I said, “Not! I do not like the dating shows. I do not believe in that!” But then they told me that I was going to work with the great Carlos Cerruti and that’s where I started to get interested in the project. He is a lifelong great producer and I said to myself, “I have to listen to what he has to say.” He told me what “The Mask of Love” was about, and then I said yes. They convinced me and now I am happy with life because it is a Show that we know that people are not going to fall in love in one hour of the program, it is impossible! (haha). What we are looking for in “The Mask of Love” is that first meeting, that first spark, that first chemistry that occurs when you meet someone you like. That is what we are looking for.
In addition, that in each Show we have a protagonist or a protagonist and we have five suitors who are masked throughout the show until they are eliminated or until they win, depending. Those five suitors don’t all come looking for love. There are people who come for interest and others who come for love. And if you are the last one to stay, the winner, the one who is chosen by the protagonist or the protagonist, you can also get a little money, but then, you lose love. It is difficult, but it is a lot of fun and it is also worth changing your mind. They say that it is wise to change your mind and we also hope that there are people who do meet someone they really like and say, “I came for money, but I’d better stay with love.”
SM: As you told us, the participants will wear a carnival mask, do you think that this way the suitors will focus more on the personality and qualities and not so much on the physical?
AV: Yes, that’s what it’s about, that you fall in love with the personality, with the chemistry, with how well you can get along. And you will see that they do change a lot with the mask. Mind you, most of them look better without the mask. I must admit that now we have been rehearsing and they look better when they remove the mask.
SM: Angelica, on the show you play Cupid, have you ever acted like Cupid in real life with your friends or family?
AV: I have not been much, I have tried, but it has never been successful. But when my best friend arrived with the photo of the one who is now her husband, she said: “How do you see it? This boy is very interested ”. And I said, “What are you waiting for? This is the love of your life ”. And she said, “Do you think?” And I said, “Sure! See how good he is. What do you need? Think no more!”. And today they are married and they are a very beautiful couple. But I did have a lot to do with that relationship.
SM: You tell us about love affairs, do you think love at first sight?
AV: I do believe in that first crush, in that first meeting. Although, I say that if it were for me, the first meeting I had with my husband was detestable (ha ha ha) It would never have worked! Nerd. My husband and I saw each other and I liked it very badly because we met in other circumstances. He was working, he was married, he was an executive and I never imagined. Nothing to see! Later, when I met him outside of work, that’s when I said, “Hmm, I think so! And already separated and I said: “He’s already divorced, now, now!” (LOL). So, I did know him well but at work I didn’t like him at all. However, I tell you that that first attraction, that first chemistry can be given and more if you are looking for it. When I met my husband I was not looking for anything with anyone, I had my boyfriend, I was going to get married … imagine what things, how life changes in love!
SM: Exactly that I wanted to talk to you about, what is the secret of the success of a long-lasting partner like yours?
I believe that communication. It is definitely in communication. I think you have to marry your best friend. Regardless of passion, regardless of other things that obviously have to attract you from him to be your partner, but he has to be your best friend. Communication and getting along are so important. Being able to tell him everything and being you, never trying to change for anyone because in the end your true personality will come out and you will be you. The most important thing is to know each other well and to communicate, that you never keep anything. I still have the butterflies, there are still all those beautiful things of love. I still feel sorry for my partner, in the 10 years of marriage… See? I think I do have good experience to be able to make people fall in love.
SM: Another of the most important loves in our life is love for our children, what is that love like? How would you describe yourself as a mother?
AV: I would have to ask them but I hope they say that I am a good mom (ha ha ha). I, the truth, I am totally in love with my children, the most beautiful and pure love that exists, the most incredible love that I have known in my life is love for my children. I think it also has to do with love as a couple in that sense because there are so many things about him and I see so many things about me in them. Staying in love with my partner I think also helps a lot to that great love that I have for my children. I am crazy in love for them! But, I don’t let love blind me because it is super important to educate them. One thing is spoiling them and other things is spoiling them. I feel when they deserve it, when they earn it. Because here is a rule in the house that you have to get good grades. If not, there are no gifts, no holidays, birthday parties, maybe a small cupcake, but all the benefits are over. If you comply with the school, I comply with pampering you. Do not spoil you, pamper yourself, be careful! But you have your responsibility. Because in the end that’s life, you have your responsibilities and not if you don’t fulfill them because life doesn’t give you anything back.
SM: Also, now more than ever, due to the circumstances of the pandemic, being able to fall in love has become more complicated …
AV: This program is very relevant. Precisely because of this because you go out to a bar and say to yourself, “Will he be vaccinated? Will he not be vaccinated? Will he have Covid? Will he not?” And what a scare! I start to think and say, “no, it wouldn’t come out. I stay single forever in my house ”(ha ha ha). At least, here we know that we are all negative because if not, they will not let us enter the building to work, and almost all of us are vaccinated.
SM: From your experience, what advice would you give to suitors going on the show?
AV: The first is that you have to pay attention to what intentions they carry because I don’t want any of them to leave with a broken heart. It will inevitably happen, of course, but I don’t want anyone to get hurt. So, you have to look closely at the signs, you have to think very well if we really want a partner because if you want to fill that void that you have with another person, I have news for you, the only person who can fill that void is you, it’s self-love. Also, that they are going to have fun because in the end we are going to have a great time and I am sure that families at home will also have a good time because this is a show designed to entertain, to have fun … Of course we want all couples to go out in love, that they go out with that first spark but above all that they come out excited.
SM: It is the first time that you work in the television network Estrella TV, how is the experience being?
The fault of everything was Omar Chaparro who invited me to his program and they treated me so well, they made me feel at home. And there is something also very important is that every time I have to record television I have to go to Miami or Mexico and it is the first time that I finish recording and I can get to hug my children, my husband and fall asleep in my bed. It is a wonder! It’s the most wonderful thing that could have happened to me. But the truth is that Estrella TV, in this new stage, are being so professional, so cute, so affectionate and giving me respect and affection that is appreciated. They treat you as a human being and not as if you were a machine and that is always appreciated. The truth is that I am very happy, very happy.
SM: You have a program on the radio, now you host a show, you are a mother, a wife, how do you manage to balance everything?
AV: There are 24 hours a day! You have to keep an agenda. My husband, in addition to being an executive, grew up a lot in television programming and has taught me to program because he sends me appointments every so often. So, we are coordinating a lot by calendar. If you organize yourself, everything is possible in this life. Of course there are days when I leave the radio and I have to go to record and be there all day until night. But I insist, when I get to hug my children, it is worth it. I am the happiest woman on this planet and on weekends I take it out on everything.
SM: And then, the weekend is when you take time out for yourself …
AV: It is also important and [sacar tiempo] boyfriends. A time to be romantic and think that we are boyfriends and the children are going with their grandmother. That’s what I was going to tell you, I have a grandmother, my mom, that I can count on her 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and she’s the best thing that can happen to me. Nobody like my mother to be with my children and to help me like now that I am working in Estrella TV that has to pick up my children from school and nobody better than her. I am blessed, otherwise I could not work. I appreciate it in my soul!
