Recasts in Discuss The Soaps: Archive (2015 - 2017) Posted April 30, 2012 · Report reply Did you see those scenes air:? Regardless of her personal convictions, it was just stupid. Carlota saw Cristian with a book and automatically assumed he was gay even though he had NEVER showed any inkling of being gay. She said she always knew he was and used him eing art as an example to reinforce this. She got overly happy about having a gay son as if he was going to be the Stanford to her Carrie Bradshaw. It made absolutely no sense and was written completely out of character both for Carlota but for the history of Cristian up until that point I saw those scenes they were awful. And having lived around Puerto Rican people for several years very few Puerto Rican mothers I've met would jump for joy over their son being gay. And I've had more than a few gay Puerto Rican friends. It's pride thing.
