The ‘El Chapo’ Family Is In The Headlines Again But This Time It’s Because One Family Member Could Be Joining A VH1 Show

Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman has been in the news a lot recently. From his high-profile criminal case in the United States (that resulted in multiple life sentences) to the failed capture of his son in a Mexican police sting, the El Chapo name has been in many headlines.

Now, El Chapo’s wife is in the spotlight herself for the rumors of her possible casting in a hit VH1 show – Cartel Crew.

El Chapo’s wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, is reportedly in talks to join the cast of VH1’s Cartel Crew.

According to TMZ, Aispuro had a meeting with Michael Blanco (who is the son of Griselda Blanco) in Miami. Those close to the situation claim that Blanco was talking to Aispuro about her possibly joining the reality show’s cast. The meeting seemingly took place on Aispuro’s yacht and Micheal’s girlfriend, Marie, was also in attendance, judging from the pictures TMZ was able to obtain.

Coronel, who is barred from seeing her hubby who is locked up in the nation’s only supermax facility in Colorado, was recently in Miami for a round of meetings to discuss joining the reality TV show, TMZ said.

Michael and his partner, Marie, pulled up on their boat for the face-to-face meeting with Coronel in an effort to get her to join the reality show, which is currently in its second season.

Getting Aispuro to join the show would be a stretch for VH1.

Unlike the rest of the cast, El Chapo’s Sinaloa Cartel is still operating at a high level. Her husband is also working on appealing his life sentence. This could limit her dialogue on the show in an effort not to ruin El Chapo’s chances of regaining his freedom. Still, insiders tell TMZ that a deal is on the table for Aispuro to join the cast. If she agrees, her segments will start production immediately. 

Authorities in Mexico on Wednesday showed dramatic helmet cam footage of the moment Guzman’s son was captured by police earlier this month before the government released him after an ambush by cartel gunmen killed at least eight people.

Cartel Crew is a popular show for the network and landing such a big name could really help drive the network’s success.

According to VH1, “Cartel Crew” aims to look at the lives of eight cartel descendants “as they navigate adulthood and the effects the legacy has had on their upbringing.” The subjects allege to have disconnected themselves from their past, the network says, and hope to make a name for themselves beyond the drug world.

The show already has another successful season under it’s belt.

Cartel Crew is currently shooting its second season. Along with Blanco, Aispuro would be joined by Marie Ramirez-D’Ariano, Kat Flores, Stephanie Acevedo, Nicole Zavala, Michael Zavala, Carlos Oliveros, and Dayana Castellanos if she signs on.

America Ferrera’s “Superstore” Is Going To Get A Spanish-Language Adaptation In A Win For Inclusion

America Ferrera’s “Superstore” Is Going To Get A Spanish-Language Adaptation In A Win For Inclusion

Fans of the hit NBC comedy Superstore may have been disappointed when it was announced that the series would be cancelled after its sixth season, but there’s good news! The series is going to get a Spanish-language version for international audiences and it will be part of a major expansion for the series. 

The show was well-known for tackling important social issues, particularly around immigration. And a Spanish-language adaptation, particularly one produced out of Mexico, will undoubtedly present an equally interesting take on immigration.

NBC comedy Superstore is getting a Spanish-language adaptation.

Although Superstore is coming to an end on NBC, and will no longer feature America Ferrera, fans of the hit series should celebrate that it’s getting a Spanish-language redo. The show, which focused on the lives of employees at a fictional big box store called Cloud 9 in Missouri, premiered in 2015 and ran for six seasons, with its sixth season set to end on March 25.

“Superstore is a bold workplace comedy with a beating heart, known for its courage to tackle important societal issues,” said Enrique Guillen, executive VP of commercial strategy and international development for Universal Studio Group. “We are grateful to partner with Dopamine to adapt Justin Spitzer’s acclaimed comedy and one of Universal Television’s biggest success stories. This pact to co-produce our valuable IP in a foreign language is the first of many such deals to come.”

The new adaptation is being made under the working title Supertitlan and has received an 48-episode order and will be adapted in Spanish for the Latin American and U.S. Hispanic markets. 

Superstore has remained one of the most popular shows at NBC in its prime. As Variety points out, the Justin Spitzer-created comedy drew in 37 million viewers during its Season 5 run from 2019 to 2020.

And it’s getting a major expansion.

 The Spanish-language adaptation already has a season one order of 48 episodes with each episode coming in at an hour long. For a series that originally consisted of 20 episodes of 30 minutes, that’s a major expansion for the show. For fans of the show, that’s a whole lot more Superstore to look forward to.

It’s No Surprise El Chapo’s Wife Is In Jail, Her TikTok Was A Look Inside #CartelLife

It’s No Surprise El Chapo’s Wife Is In Jail, Her TikTok Was A Look Inside #CartelLife

The recent arrest of Emma Coronel Aispuro – the wife of drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman – follows a telenovela-style life that straddled hyper-violent Mexican cartels, fame and motherhood. And it’s a life that Coronel shared with her thousands of followers on social media platforms like TikTok. Here Emma Coronel tik tok

The former beauty queen used social media to give her fans a peek into the luxurious life she lived and helped birth the large #CartelLife movement that is booming on apps like TikTok.

Parties, TikTok and Reality Shows: the luxuries of Emma Coronel.

Although Emma Coronel Aispuro is now in the news for her recent arrest in the U.S., she was all about flaunting her larger than life and luxurious lifestyle. She has long stood out for sharing her life of luxury on social media, and many of her videos went viral for her dancing and singing.

Since being arrested and brought up on charges related to drug trafficking, Coronel now faces a minimum sentence of 10 years behind bars and even life imprisonment, in addition to an eventual $10 million fine, should she be found guilty of the charges.

But before being placed in a maximum security prison, Coronel was a social media influencer that helped bring the world into the #CartelLife.

Coronel’s social media life was a window into the world of Mexican drug cartels.

In 2018, Coronel decorated her home to mimic that of everyone’s beloved Barbie, in order to celebrate the birthday of her daughters. At the meeting there were even rides, inflatables and an incredible spread of all kinds.

Then, on her own birthday, images of her celebration went viral where she posed with some friends near a pool, as well as a table decorated as white candles.

In 2019, Coronel tried to launch her own clothing brand, inspired by her husband’s nickname. The company “El Chapo Guzmán JGL LLC”, would focus on wallets, sweatshirts, blouses and pants, among other items, but it failed to take off.

She even appeared on a VH1 show to share just how “normal” she was.

Emma Coronel has also participated in the reality show “Cartel Crew”, produced by the VH1 channel, where she spoke about the disadvantages of being the wife of a drug trafficker, since she says that she is judged by the people who don’t truly know her.

“It is very unfortunate that they judge us without knowing us. It’s hard because sometimes you want to do what you see everyone around you doing […] We are normal,” she said during her run on the show.

The son of El Chapo has also turned to TikTok to flaunt his millionaire lifestyle.

El Chapo’s wife isn’t the only one who has taken to social media to share her luxurious life. Jesus Alfredo Guzman, one of the drug lord’s sons, – who is already on US’s Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)’s most-wanted fugitive list – has also created a TikTok account and quickly amassed more than 15,000 followers.

So far, he’s only shared six videos but they reveal his luxurious and extravagant mansion, which includes an indoor movie theatre and a swimming pool decorated with pillars and fountains.

Although it cannot be confirmed that it is officially the account of Jesús Alfredo, the profile appears to indicate that it could be an authentic. He also spares no details on his fleet of supercars, including three Rolls-Royces, an Audi R8, a white Bentley, and an azure blue Lamborghini.

The clips are all set to narcocorridos, a controversial ballad-style music with lyrics that speak approvingly of illegal activities, mainly drug trafficking.
