Iconic Cuban singer Gloria Estefan’s career spans nearly three decades since she (along with the Miami Sound Machine) gave us “Conga” in 1985. Now she’s uniting with her daughter and rising musician Emily Estefan and her niece, Lili Estefan, host of El Gordo y la Flaca on Univision, to share their collective knowledge spanning three generations for Red Table Talk: The Estefans premiering Oct. 7.
Modeled after the mega-successful Red Table Talk featuring Jada Pinkett Smith and her mother and daughter, Willow Smith, the conversations will be candid on topics including Latinidad, sexuality, family, and mental health. According to the press release this is the first time Latinas will host a show like this while Latinas on daytime TV remain a rarity with only Adrienne Bailon Houghton of The Real and Sunny Hostin of The View.
“Three different women, three different generations. We’re loud, we’re proud, let’s go,” the Grammy-winner says in the trailer for the show.
Guests this season include acclaimed Mexican actress Kate del Castillo and her best friend, producer Jessica Maldonado; social media influencer Lele Pons; Gloria Guillen, the mother of Vanessa Guillen; Emilio Estefan, Gloria’s husband of over 40 years; actresses and activists Michelle Rodriguez and Rosie O’Donnell, and actress Karla Souza.
In the exclusive clip below, Lili discussed her painful divorce which made headlines in September of 2017 when the paparazzi caught her husband of 25 years with another woman.
Watch on Wednesday, October 7 at 9 am PT / 12 pm ET for the series premiere on Facebook Watch.
