We hear that the September 18th season finale of Jenni Rivera Presents Chiquis and Raq-C is going to be full of "drama." If you haven’t had a chance to watch an episode of the Mun2 hit, get caught up on September 25 when Jenni, Chiquis, and Raq-C reunite to talk about their favorite moments of the season. We couldn’t wait that long, so Latina.com caught up with Chiquis to get the scoop on show and chat about her mom’s recent wedding.
Are you surprised by the success of the show?
I knew people would be really interested in our lives and get hooked. So I’m not surprised, but I’m very thankful.
What is it like being a reality TV star and having cameras follow you around?
The hardest part were the first two weeks, just getting adjusted to it. Having cameras all up in your face is kind of uncomfortable, but then you get to know the people behind camera, and you get comfortable. It’s still a little surreal for me, I forget and I’ll go to the grocery store with no makeup on and people would come up to me to take a picture and I’m like ‘okay!’ It’s really nice though. It’s been a great journey.
What can we look forward to in the upcoming episodes?
¡Mas locura! On the big season finale you’re going to see Raq-C and I get into it a little bit. There’s going to be drama. You need to watch to see if we stay friends or not because our friendship is really tested on that episode. You get to see some of wedding planning also.
Were you a bridesmaid?
Actually, my sisters, niece, and I were all flower girls. It would have been kind of odd for me to be a madrina or something like that. It turned out really nice.
How did it feel to see your mom get married?
When I saw her in the dress and get off that carriage I cried…we all cried! I tried not to because they say it’s not good to cry at weddings, and my makeup looked really good that day. To know that my mom has gone through so much and has struggled, and to see her finally get married to not just any man- un hombre bien derecho (a great man)...It means the world to me.
What kind of traditional food was there at the reception?
It was all traditional Mexican food. We had fajitas de pollo, fajitas de carne, camarones a la diabla, beans and rice, and my favorite- ceviche de camaron y pescado. There was a lot of food, and a lot of alcohol.
How was the music? That had to be some party.
My feet are still kind of throbbing from all the dancing. Tito ‘El Bambino’ performed for the bride and groom’s first dance. It was really cool.
What was your favorite moment of the wedding?
>When my mom danced with my grandpa and they asked us to go up and dance with her. It was a very emotional moment for all of us. The ceremony was beautiful also- my uncle was the one who actually married them so that was nice.
