"El Chapo's" wife is in talks to join the VH1 reality show, "Cartel Crew" according to Fox News.
An insider told Fox News that Emma Coronel Aispuro was recently in Miami for a sit-down meeting with Michael Blanco who is a cast member on the show. Blanco is the son of Colombia's "cocaine godmother" Griselda Blanco and he met with "El Chapo's" wife to discuss the possibility of joining the show.
On Monday, pictures were published of the 30-year-old Aispuro on a yacht with several bodyguards watching over her and the 41-year-old Blanco. They were joined by another one of the show's cast members, Marie Ramirez De Arellano, who drove up on a different boat to meet them.
The show "Cartel Crew" gives a look at the lives of eight cartel descendants as they go through life dealing with the effects of their upbringing and their parent's legacy. All the cast members claim to have cut ties with all criminal organizations as they try to make a name for themselves beyond the underworld.
'El Chapo's' Trial
"El Chapo's" wife made a big splash when she showed up in New York City for her husband's trial. The media was obsessed with the former beauty queen's sultry librarian vibes as she walked into the federal courthouse in Brooklyn.While her husband was receiving his sentence, she was showing off her opulent lifestyle and even shared a post showing off a Barbie-themed birthday party for her daughter that she shares with "El Chapo."
There is no doubt that she would be an interesting addition to the VH1 show because she is a socialite in Mexico and has a very active social media presence.

"It’s been torture, the most inhumane situation I have lived in my entire life," the drug lord explained, adding, "It has been physical, emotional and mental torture."

"El Chapo's" son, Ovidio Guzmán López recently embarrassed the Mexican government by escaping their grasp after they captured him. A number of cartel henchmen forced a patrol of at least 30 members of government to release him, according to the NY Times. The Sinaloa Cartel, which was once headed by "El Chapo," began attacking the city of Culiacán and demanded the release of Lopez.
