Emma Coronel Aispuro, wife of jailed Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, is about to make her reality TV debut.
Aispuro is joining VH1 series Cartel Crew, the cable network confirmed Monday following reports that she was in talks to appear on season 2 of the show. Aispuro will make her debut on Nov. 18.
In a press release, VH1 says she “opens up about her life after El Chapo and her upcoming business venture.”
The show follows the sons and daughters of cartel members as they navigate adulthood and the effects of their family legacies.
Among the cast is Michael Blanco, youngest son of “Cocaine Godmother” Griselda Blanco.
A teaser trailer released Monday shows Blanco approaching Aispuro’s yacht, where she’s decked out in white and surrounded by security.
Aispuro, a 30-year-old former beauty queen, was born in California and grew up in Mexico. She married the notorious leader of the Sinaloa cartel in 2007.
Guzmán, 62, was convicted on federal drug-related charges in February, and sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison. The drug kingpin, who was known for slipping out of Mexican jails, is serving his sentence at the supermax prison in Colorado.
Cartel Crew airs Mondays at 9/8c on VH1.
