Eight years after the debut of La Reina del Sur, Kate del Castillo (Teresa Mendoza) is back as a badass mexicana as La Reina del Sur Season 2 premieres April 22 on Telemundo.
La Reina del Sur Season 2 is set eight years after Mendoza disappeared into the U.S. Federal Witness Protection Program for bringing down a Mexican presidential candidate. Now, she is coming out of anonymity and is determined to reclaim her throne as the Queen of the South –while whacking a few bad hombres in the process.
The controversial Del Castillo became world famous not precisely because of La Reina del Sur but because of her secret meeting with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera and the now infamous Sean Penn journalistic brouhaha.
WATCH as this Mexican sorts out all kinds of shit in order to get ahead of her game.
Not content with giving us plenty of drug-dealing action, first with a series about “Columbia’s” infamous narco Pablo Escobar, and then with the rebroadcast of Univision’s El Chapo, Netflix is at it again, this time with a “Docu-Series” starred and produced by Mexican actress Kate del Castillo.
Cuando conocí al Chapo has been produced by 25/7 Productions and Kate del Castillo Productions, and it will make its worldwide debut Oct. 20, 2017 on Netflix.
A first trailer was released today and features previously unseen footage about Del Castillo’s meeting with the notorious drug lord. The clip opens with Kate reading the first letter El Chapo sent her, while later she discusses the journey to meet him. “We didn’t know anything,” del Castillo says. “We didn’t know what was going to happen or where we were going. I got out of the car. I knew it was him. El Chapo sat right next to me. I was very scared.”
I don’t know you, but I prefer these two in piñata form.
The creators of the Donald Trump piñata are at it again, this time with an awesome combo: Two brand new piñatas, one featuringKate del Castillo (aka La Reina del Sur and the toughest telenovela actress you will ever meet) and a revamped Chapo-Piñata, featuring Guzmán clad in the now infamous worn-out gray t-shirt he was wearing when caught.
The combo comes on the heels of one of the most surreal (i.e. awesome) stories ever to hit my ever-surreal country…
I think this is all great (gracias, Piñatería Ramírez!), but this blogger has one urgent question: How much longer do we have to wait for the Sean-Penndejo piñata?
First came Paulina, then Shakira, Banderas, JLo and even José José. Now, mypaisana, Kate del Castillo, is the latest celebrity to join the club of Latino celebrities pitching a fragrance.
But unlike previous launches, Kate’s fragrance is not called ‘Kate del Castillo.’ It is a fragrance launched by Avon called Flor Violeta, “a floral fragrance with hints of apples, violets and musk,” that Del Castillo describes as “freshhh and joeeful” in an impossibly cute Mexican accent.
