Fearing competition and high ratings, prominent Brazilian channel Rede Globo bought the rights to this series only to prevent SBT from airing it in 2000. Globo also considered remaking it, which is unusual for the channel since the 60s. The series was, however, bought and aired by RedeTV! in 2003, while SBT later aired the Mexican remake The Prettiest Ugly Girl (2006).
In one of the later episodes, Betty, out of fury, imagines herself slapping Armando into a lamp. Armando rubs the wrong side of his cheek, after falling into the lamp.
