A better life: will the show end soon?


The soap opera Plus Belle La Vie, broadcast for fifteen years on France 3, could be stopped. The audiences are too low!

Indeed, fans of Plus Belle La Vie share his opinion. This is the case with Céline, who did not hesitate to confide: “The soap has aged badly. We quickly saw the difference when Tomorrow belongs to us on TF1 “. Ouch…
