Cleófilas instead turns to the television, particularly the telenovelas, for a female role model in her life. After

about all the bad rumors that would spread if she left her husband publicly. If Cleófilas grew up with a strong female role model in her life, she probably would not have stayed with her husband as long as she did. From the beginning, Cleófilas could have seen the trouble signs and left the situation. The telenovelas only represented a fantasy world and those type stories did not exists in the real world.
