Gloria Trevi’s New ‘Reality Show’ Tries to Convince Us She’s Not Insane

Read more

Mexico’s own Gloria Trevi gets ready to show off her pelo suelto on her new reality show for mun2, A Toda Gloria. Fresh off of denouncing the unauthorized biopic of her life, the multi-platinum artist might be looking to set the record straight — or just sell some more records.

At the very least, there’s plenty of fodder for the series since Trevi’s real life sounds like the plot of a telenovela. In the 1980s, she left the girl group, Boquitas Pintadas, to go solo, and became an international sensation, selling millions of records and concert tickets. But after becoming embroiled in a sex scandal, Trevi spent four years in prison, even giving birth to a daughter while incarcerated.

Trevi — who, in her day in her day might have made Miley Cyrus blush with her on-stage antics — has already managed quite a comeback. Her latest album, “De Pelicula,” gave her three hit singles, and took her touring across the United States again. She also starred in a telenovela, the short-lived Libre para amarte. But her reality show, which premieres on October 5, will catch us up on her day-to-day, and maybe shed some light on the more sordid parts of her past.

We really hope she shows her most interesting side. You know, the batshit crazy side.


A Toda Gloria premieres on mun2 on October 5 at 9pm.
