The Malaysia Franchise of Mi Gorda Bella - The Other Uglies outside Betty's World

Remember "Taba Tina" (Fat Tina) that was shown in ABS-CBN's rival network GMA? The real title of it is " "Mi Gorda Bella" and it's originally  produced by Venezuela's Radio Caracas Televisión. This telenovela is not officially based on Yo Soy Betty,la fea, but was probably inspired by it; lasted 178 episodes and distributed internationally by RCTV International. After Malaysians were seduced by the beautiful fat Valentina and her antics in "Mi Gorda Bella", a private television station has decided to buy the rights from Venezuela's RCTV to produce a local-flavored version of the telenovella called Manjalara. Using the same format but with a bit alteration to suit Malaysian cultural sensitivity, the serial is shown every Monday to Thursday at 6.30 p.m. on TV3. Starring Jehan Miskin, Emelda Rosmila as Manjalara, Sheila Rusly, Mustapha Kamal and former national gymnast Raja Farah.
