Fearless and convinced that the change is for the best, Victoria Ruffo will start a new path for her acting career, move to Miami and star alongside Arturo Peniche in a new Telemundo program. “It’s a great opportunity to do this [telenovela],” Ruffo says. “It’s a question of adapting to a new way of life.”

Without a doubt, her lifestyle is about to speed up considerably. Ruffo, 45, who lives in Mexico, will have to continue her role as a mother and as the First Lady of Puebla, Mexico, in addition to filming the new TV project.

“My family will stay in Mexico and I’ll be in Miami…Fortunately, they support me a lot,” the Mexican actress explains. “I’ll be traveling constantly to be with them, and I’ll also continue my political activities.”

At the moment, Telemundo still hasn’t revealed what the new show will be called, nor have they provided a definite list of the actors who will partake in the new adventure with Ruffo and Peniche.

A press representative gave word that Ruffo signed her contract on Monday at RTI studios in Bogotá, Colombia. Even though the show is supposed to begin filming by the end of this month, the star of La madrastra (The Stepmom) assured us that it will happen in Miami.

Ruffo will lead the cast of the new version of the telenovela that originally starred Angélica Aragón in Mexico and Judy Henríquez in Colombia, in which the main character is a woman who falls in love with a younger man after the life with her current husband becomes impossible.
