Netflix Resurrected This Telenovela Villain Once Again To Give OITNB Some Life And It’s Genius

Netflix is dropping season 5 of “Orange Is The New Black” on June 9 and they are getting everybody excited. In the latest teaser to hit the Internet, Netflix LATAM teamed up with one of the most notorious telenovela villains in history…again. That’s right, Soraya Montenegro ended up at Litchfield Penitentiary and BFFs Marisol “Flaca” Gonzalez and Maritza Ramos could not handle their excitement. This is the second time the infamous novela villain has been resurrected to bring some life to the Netflix original series.

Soraya is back with OITNB besties Flaca and Maritza.


The iconic telenovela villain is back to the franchise much to Flaca’s surprise who first sees her setting up shop in her new bunk next to her. When Flaca realizes that it is in fact Soraya, she (understandably) starts to fangirl and grabs her partner-in-crime Maritza so they can bask in the icons glory together. Once Flaca and Maritza get their freak out out of the way, they then beg for a reenactment of the “Maldita Lisiada” scene that made Soraya the international icon she is today.

Jailhouse besties Flaca and Maritza take their moment with the most famous of telenovela villains to recreate her most iconic scene.

However, Soraya isn’t happy with how they act it out so she gives them a little tip on how to make it believable.

Flaca is all of us when she clearly loses her mind at the fact that she is being choked out by Soraya. Maritza is just as star struck as she watches a legend at work. The promo continues to show Soraya crying in Spanish because memes are life, tbh.

Fans are over the moon with Netflix’s cultural crossover.


“Thanks Netflix ??,” wrote @danitalva1707.

And some fans are clearly deeply in love with the way Netflix is promoting the upcoming show.


For those days when words won’t cut it, a Soraya gif will always do the trick.

Not to mention that being extra will only benefit Netflix.


“Netflix is the best,” wrote @AbbeyStarKF. Well played, Netflix, well played.

Fans of the series are *dying* because of their uncontrollable excitement.


*takes a deep breath in and a deep breath out*

So…

Michelle Obama Will Be Cooking With Kids In Her New Netflix Show

Michelle Obama Will Be Cooking With Kids In Her New Netflix Show

As if we needed another reason to tune into Netflix, Michelle Obama will be bringing a new cooking show to the streaming giant aimed towards kids. The former First Lady was well-known for her health and fitness initiatives while in the White House and now she’s bringing that same passion to a fun new cooking show.

Michelle Obama launches a new cooking show on Netflix for kids.

The former first lady announced on Instagram that she’s launching a children’s cooking program, called Waffles + Mochi. The show will follow two Muppets-esque puppets – Waffles and Mochi – who dream of becoming chefs. One day, they’re hired by a magical supermarket and embark on a series of far-flung adventures to discover new foods from around the world. They travel to Peru to try potatoes in the Andes, try spices in Italy, and make miso in Japan—finding plenty of friends along the way. According to Netflix, Obama will act as the grocery store’s friendly owner.

The show starts streaming on March 16. Although it’s aimed at children, she says parents will enjoy it too: “I know that adults will also get plenty of laughs—and some tips for the kitchen.”

The show is in many ways an extension of Obama’s platform as First Lady.

The theme of the show closely aligns with Obama’s “Let’s Move!” public health campaign, which was aimed at curbing childhood obesity. As one of her signature platforms, she tried to lead initiatives that helped families get access to healthy, affordable foods and increase their physical activities.

“In many ways, this show is an extension of my work to support children’s health as First Lady—and to be quite honest, I wish a program like this had been around when my girls were young,” Obama wrote on Instagram. “I also know that this is a difficult time for so many families, and I’m hopeful that this delightful show can bring a bit of light and laughter to homes around the world.”

“Waffles + Mochi” is just one of the former First Lady’s many media ventures. Her “Becoming” documentary is already on Netflix, and in 2020, she launched a podcast on Spotify. Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions has a multi-year production deal with Netflix.
