On Sunday night Univision aired a special titled ‘Amor Prohibido‘ or ‘Forbidden Love,’ which dealt with the alleged love life of music sensation Selena Quintanilla-Perez.
Univision is very aware that anytime they air a TV special on the life of the Tejano superstar they break audience records. Hence Selena ¡VIVE! which became the highest rated and most viewed Spanish-language TV special ever in the history of American television. The TV special was also the number one show regardless of language in many U.S. markets. RAL Video Link: Remembering Selena Quintanilla Perez! (Video)
Since Selena’s tragic death on March 31, 1995 Univision has aired numerous annual specials in tribute of the fallen singer.
But this time around the network did the complete opposite… instead of celebrating and remembering the life of the Tejano superstar they aired a scandalous special which dealt with various rumors from un-creditable sources who basically trashed Selena’s name along with her relationship with her husband Chris Perez and her family.
After the airing Selena’s husband Chris Perez showed his anger on Facebook Story Link: Chris Perez Bothered With Univision Special On Alleged Selena Affair!
And now Selena’s older sister, Suzette Quintanilla-Arriaga expressed her anger via Facebook with “I tried not to focus on what stupid lies that were said about my sister Selena last nite on Primer Impacto…. But I cant just not say anything to defend my family. Its beyond me why Yolanda has the right to be heard. She is a KILLER!! She deserves NOTHING! as for Dr. Martinez he needs to wake up from him Fantasy dream and realize how stupid he looks and sounds! Im asking all of you to please help us out by letting Primer Impacto know we wont let them do this to Selena.Im asking for you to BOYCOTT “Primer Impacto”. If not for me, for her….”
Now if you didn’t catch the special… all you missed was continued unreliable stories from Selena’s killer Yolanda Saldivar and alleged stories from Dr. Ricardo Martinez who claims he had a love affair with the singer.
If you are un-familiar with this case… you might ask yourself why are these two un-creditable? Well first of all Saldivar was a conniving woman who earned Selena’s trust only stab her in the back by stealing over $20,000 from the singers fan club and by murdering her by shooting her in the back.
And for the case of Dr. Martinez, rumors of his affair with Selena have been circulating for many years, (the rumors were created by Yolanda) at first Martinez claims nothing happened between the two, and now years later he wants to change his story. For what? Many have speculated a book deal or some kind of monetary compensation.
After Suzette’s comments… fans showed their support by wanting to boycott Univision’s ‘Primer Impacto.’
What do you think of this entire ordeal? On a personal note, I think it’s ridiculous for anyone to continue interviewing Yolanda. Not that long ago, it was rumored that she would be getting paroled, but Selena’s father Abraham Quintanilla said for her safety it was better if she remained in prison.
