Show transcript
00:08
I forgot how it goes.
00:09
But Bam. Damn,
00:10
that's catchy. Hey,
00:12
welcome back to Lincoln bio episode.
00:15
I think we're on episode three,
00:16
brother four. All right.
00:18
Well, this is Jennifer Jenny and I'm Alejandro.
00:21
So again, welcome back in.
00:22
All right, by the way,
00:25
there is a leak happening right behind Jenny.
00:27
So if you guys hear like now,
00:31
you know, so,
00:33
but anyways, should we start off with the first
00:36
topic? Yes, we shall.
00:37
Let's do it. Ok.
00:42
So first up we have Griselda Fun Facts.
00:45
As you know, the new series Griselda is coming to Netflix
00:48
on Thursday, January 25th and I'm excited to binge it.
00:53
I mean, you know,
00:54
Netflix, I feel I could do a good job with all
00:56
the series and I'm down there just sit down and for eight
00:59
hours and watch it.
01:00
And so, and there's been a lot of controversy too with
01:03
it. So I'm excited.
01:04
Oh, ok. Well,
01:06
I mean, I wanna learn more about the controversy.
01:07
So actually, we wanted to bring out one of our writers
01:10
to the set.
01:11
Well, virtually. Hi,
01:12
Camila, how are you?
01:14
Hi. Thank you so much for joining us.
01:17
Thank you. But wait,
01:18
wait, where are you?
01:20
I'm at Date Land Mall actually here in Miami.
01:24
This is the site.
01:25
I don't know if you've ever heard of the Date Land Mall
01:27
massacre in 1979. It was a shootout super famous.
01:35
that shows just how bad the cocaine cowboys and the drug
01:40
wars were in Miami during that time two people died.
01:44
And it was, it's a pretty famous tragedy here in Miami
01:48
but that infamous tragedy is linked to Griselda as well.
01:52
Yes. So Griselda,
01:54
she actually really amassed her fortune and her cocaine empire here in
02:00
Miami. Yeah,
02:03
so one thing is that she actually went into the drug business
02:09
by when she moved to New York in the late sixties with
02:13
her second husband. So one fact that I think is pretty
02:17
important to say early on about Gisela is that she allegedly killed
02:22
all three of her husbands,
02:24
which is the reason they call her the black widow.
02:27
Oh, so she's a coen godmother,
02:29
the black widow. What other nicknames does she have?
02:38
Mari? That's wild.
02:40
And I know you mentioned about a lawsuit with the series,
02:43
is that because of the series,
02:45
it's got announced or what's going on with that?
02:47
The series right now is going to focus on all these facts
02:50
that I've talked about,
02:51
obviously her fortune. I'm sure about killing of her husbands being
02:56
in Miami and amassing this fortune.
02:59
But apparently these facts that Netflix is bringing into the show.
03:06
Those are the facts that are under fire right now.
03:09
So her only surviving son whose name is actually Michael Corleone Blanco
03:17
is named after the Godfather character.
03:19
He and the rest of Gris La Ran's estate are Suing Netflix
03:24
and the show for unauthorized use of their likeness and their image
03:32
I know you're not a lawyer or maybe you are,
03:34
I don't know. is there something there like actually stick
03:38
or is it? I mean,
03:39
I thought if it's a historical thing,
03:41
it's kinda depending on how they portray.
03:44
It's OK. I don't know,
03:45
Griselda Blanco as a public persona from what I know she's fair
03:50
game for all this,
03:52
for series, for books.
03:54
But what her son is saying is that he wanted to make
03:58
a show or a movie and he actually gave tons of
04:03
facts about his mom to producers and he says that Netflix took
04:09
those facts like they were sneaky with it and they didn't pay
04:13
him for anything. So that is the main issue.
04:18
A finesse the PB D Netflix go on Netflix.
04:23
That's all I'm saying.
04:24
No, I'm kidding.
04:25
Netflix. We love you.
04:26
Maybe they're just trying to stir the pot for the show
04:29
you know, I mean,
04:30
that gets people kind of curious,
04:32
oh, like Sofia Vergara is gonna,
04:34
she's getting sued because of this and it makes people wanna watch
04:37
it, you know,
04:37
so it could be like a marketing tactic.
04:39
No say. And actually speaking of Sophia,
04:41
I know,,
04:41
she was also recently in the news for her current,
04:44
well, her divorce as you know,
04:46
which recently split from her man.
04:47
Of how many plus years?
04:50
Joe. Right.
04:50
Mangano. Anyways, Jo m,
04:54
look at that baba soul thing.
04:57
That's a Zaddy right there.
04:59
Oh, you know,
04:59
he's actually, he wants kids.
05:00
Right. He's a little younger.
05:02
He still wants kids.
05:03
She's like I had my kids,
05:04
they're adults, like,
05:06
been there, done that.
05:07
Like, she's ready to be Alita.
05:09
She doesn't wanna be a mom anymore.
05:10
It's because it's a lot.
05:12
And if you imagine when you're older,
05:13
like your body is different.
05:15
So I get her but I feel like that's something that should
05:17
have been talked about way before,
05:19
you know, but of Carnose.
05:21
I don't know how,
05:22
how it happened. No.
05:23
Yeah. Do you have any insight on that Camilla?
05:25
I know you're reporting for us.
05:27
I love all this.
05:28
She honestly, it's interesting because they announced their divorce last summer
05:32
but there were lots of rumors about it being over kids,
05:36
like him wanting kids and she didn't.
05:38
And I guess this kind of proves that sometimes rumors are true
05:42
I guess because she actually just came out on a press
05:45
run for Griselda and she said that it's actually true.
05:49
She has a 32 year old son and that's it for her
05:53
and her ex husband did want kids and she said that she
05:57
just wants to be in AUA.
05:58
She wants her son to bring her a child and for her
06:02
to be with this child and then give it back to him
06:04
and call it. I feel that,
06:07
I mean but yeah,
06:09
thank you so much Camila for the time for all the insight
06:11
for the Chisme. I guess we'll stay tuned to Griselda
06:14
when it airs on Netflix and see again,
06:16
we have those fun facts that you mentioned pop up but
06:19
enjoy your time at the mall.
06:22
you know, check out Spencer's while you're there and all
06:24
that stuff. Get a pretzel our treat.
06:26
Yeah. Thank you.
06:29
Bye bye.
