La Reina Del Sur Told Diane Sawyer About What It Was Like To Meet El Chapo

20/20/ ABC News

On Friday, Kate del Castillo sat down with Diane Sawyer to talk at length about her encounter with El Chapo. This was the first time del Castillo opened up the controversial meet-up — which resulted in the capture of the world’s most powerful drug lord — and it did not disappoint. Below is the juicy TL: DR version of the interview.

1. Alcohol was involved in the Twitter-storm that started it all.

A quick refresher: the Chapo/Kate narconovela was sparked by a 2012 series of tweets written by the actress. In that Twitter-storm, del Castillo said she believed more in El Chapo than in the Mexican government and even asked the drug lord to show compassion. Del Castillo told the 20/20 host that she’d been drinking when she wrote those tweets. The moral of the story: don’t mix booze and social media.

2. Del Castillo just couldn’t pass up the chance 0f a lifetime.

Did Kate have any doubt about setting up a meeting with the El Chapo? Sure, but then again, she couldn’t pass up the chance to have the life story rights of the most dangerous man in the world.

3. Kate finally, sorta, kinda admits that El Chapo had a crush on her.

Real talk: El Chapo had a mad crush on La Reina Del Sur. You don’t tell a girl that you’ll take better care of her than of your own eyes without feeling some kind of way. Kate, of course, friend zoned the hell out of El Chapo (a place harder to break out of than a maximum security Mexican prison) and pretended like she didn’t know he was into her. Sawyer, being the Peabody Award winner that she is, finally got the actress to admit the one-sided.

4. El Chapo’s crush wasn’t innocent puppy love.

More real talk: you don’t get penis surgery if all you want to do is hold hands.

5. Kate said she was disappointed, all while pulling a Mariah Carey on Sean Penn.

Above all, del Castillo told Sawyer that she felt used, both by Sean Penn, who took advantage of her access, and by El Chapo, who wanted to sleep with her. And like any person spurned and burned, she took the opportunity to throw some Mariah Carey-level shade at Sean Penn.

The Next Time Someone Says We Need A Border Wall, Show Them This

Yes, building a border wall is a really stupid idea.

John Oliver devoted his Sunday show to Donald Trump’s favorite topic: the wall he’s going to build along the southern border of the U.S. that he’ll have Mexico pay for (lol, nope). In just under 19-minutes, the comedian very thoroughly points out just how dumb Trump’s whole plan is. For example, he highlights how much it’s going to cost — according to the Congressional Budget office: a sh*t ton and all of the legal trouble that will come from trying to fence off the nearly 2,000 miles of border that exist between Mexico and the United States. He also makes fun of Donald Trump. Like, a lot.
