(Sonya Smith plays Griselda)

This July, Telemundo (DStv channel 118) will launch Husband for Hire, a compelling story which marries the best of love, humour and betrayal. Starting July 20 at 19h40 (CAT), this telenovela classic promises to set viewers’ hearts racing and their blood boiling!

Husband for Hire stars Sonya Smith, Juan Soler and Maritza Rodriquez and documents the highs and lows of two people who fall in love but are challenged at every turn. Griselda, played by Sonya Smith, is a kind-hearted and determined woman who works extremely hard to give her three children everything they need in life. Griselda is thrown into the deep end of love when she meets Reinaldo, played by Juan Soler, who is an honest and hard-working man.

But unlike the typical love story, Griselda and Reinaldo’s relationship is challenged from day one. While Reinaldo has fallen completely in love with the person he deems as perfect, his wife Teresa, played by Maritza Rodriquez, who is a class-conscious and superficial woman, is not happy and will stop at nothing to tear the two apart.

Husband for Hire will air from 19h40 weekdays from July 20, 2015, only on Telemundo (DStv channel 118).
