Cheias de Charme('Sparkling Girls') is a Brazilian telenovela produced and broadcast by Rede Globo. It premiered on April 16, 2012 and run for 143 episodes, with the finale airing on September 28, 2012.


The plot tells the story of three maids - Maria da Penha, Maria Aparecida (Cida) and Maria do Rosario who, by luck or talent, will change your destiny. Penha is a 34 year old woman, hardworking, who raised her siblings Alana and Elano, after their parents abandoned them. Penha is wife of Sandro, a trickster who does not want to work and is addicted to football. Penha and Sandro has a son, little Patrick. Penha works as a maid in the house of the singer Chayene, a diva eletroforró tecnobrega and bitter that a bad phase, this she attributes to a nonexistent overweight. Chayene is an evil woman who mistreats all her employees. One day Chayene physically assaults Penha, after she accidentally burned her dress. Penha goes to the police station to report the employer.

Rosario is a cook, who dreams of being a singer and is passionate about singer Fabian. She finally gets to go to one of his show, but gets into tremendous trouble. The singer's bodyguards catch her and take her to the police station. Rosario knows Ignatius, a simple man, who looks exactly like Fabian, and therefore hates him. Ignatious suffers from being confused with the singer by his crazy fans. Rosary falls for him. But Ignatius just want to have a family, and doesn't endorse Rosario's dream of being a singer.

Cida is a 19 year old girl who lives with her godmother, Valda, in the her employer's house, Sonia, a rich woman rich married to Ernani. She has two daughters: Ariela and Isadora. Cida's mother, Dolores, was Sonia's maid, before she died. Cida and her godmother work as domestic servants and are very mistreated by employers. Cida catches her boyfriend, Rodinei, with another woman in a nightclub and gets into trouble. She is also taken to the police station.

Penha, Cida and Rosario end up in jail for contempt. They meet in jail and sympathize with each other. The three maids make a pact: "Employee by day, lady by night." Rosario will work in Chayene's house instead of Penha. Penha in turn, will work for Lygia, a good hearted lawyer. Cida fall for Conrado Werneck, a rich man without character, who doesn't know she is an employee. Isadora arrives from travelling, and Conrado discovers the entire truth. Isadora is bad and envious and plans to separate Cida from Conrad and stay with him. Cida suffers greatly at the hands of employers, especially with Sonia and Isadora, who humiliate her constantly. Mother and daughter are the villains of her story. Ariela is the eldest daughter of Sonia and being overweight tries several crazy diets. Ariela is engaged to Humberto, and is somewhat snobbish and thus a comical villain.

One day, Rosario called Penha and Cida to Chayene's house, while her employer is outside. The three decide to have fun and with the help of Kleiton, create a song "Vida de Empreguete." There, the video clip is shot, with the girls using Chayene's clothes. The clip is a success and they decided to form a band, "Empreguetes." They write new songs like "Marias Brasileiras", "Forro das Curicas" among others. The Empreguetes start being more and more successful, which excites the entrepreneur Tom Bastos and Fabian, who want at all costs to separate Rosario and Ignatius. The success of Empreguetes also arouses the envy of Chayene, who with the help of her maid, Socorro, is obsessed with the singers and will make all the she can to harm the trio.
