AceShowbiz - It seems like VH1's "Cartel Crew" will welcome a new addition to its cast. A new report suggests that Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's beautiful wife Emma Coronel Aispuro is currently in talks to join the reality show while her notorious drug kingpin husband is locked in jail.
According to TMZ, Emma was recently in Miami for a round of meetings to discuss joining the reality TV show. In the Monday, November 4 report, the 30-year-old was photographed on a yacht alongside cast member Michael Blanco. Michael is the youngest son of so-called cocaine godmother Griselda Blanco.
In the photos, Michael was seen lounging in a smaller boat before he joined Emma later on. According to the publication, Emma is expected to join "Cartel Crew" as soon as possible.
Should Emma appear on the show, El Chapo may be able to get a glimpse of his glamorous wife as he's currently serving life behind bars plus 30 years in supermax facility in Colorado. Emma is barred from seeing her husband following his conviction as the longtime head of the sprawling Sinaloa drug cartel.
Also starring Marie Ramirez-D'Arino, Kat "Tatu Baby" Flores and Stephanie Acevedo among others, "Cartel Crew" aired its first episode in January. According to the its description, the show, which is currently in its second season, features families that have drug-trafficking pasts. However, cast members are trying to be role models outside of the drug world.
The news arrives after El Chapo's son Ovidio Guzman Lopez had been freed from custody after a mass shootout broke out when he was detained. He was reportedly briefly held by security forces in the Mexican city of Culiacan on Thursday, October 17. It prompted masked gunmen to trade fire with security forces, before they released him and retreated from the building where they found him for their own safety and "to recover calm in the city."
A lawyer for the Guzman family told the Associated Press, "Ovidio is alive and free," while Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he would hold a meeting of his security cabinet to discuss the incident.
Ovidio is said to be an active member of El Chapo's Sinaloa cartel, and is reportedly facing charges in the U.S. for conspiracy to traffic cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine.
