LOL Hilariously boring!
9 January 2019 | by paulistefSee all my reviews

I'd never ever heard of this aging Mexican telenovela actress until the whole circus with the drug guy and the weirdo Penn. Spotted this amateur "documentary" (infomercial...) while browsing for the Narcos series. It took me about 20 minutes of viewing to realize that this is a self-promoting outlet from a non-existent D-list actress who's seeking attention instead of curing her bad ADHD and personality disorders. Completely irrelevant. I still intend to watch the other 2 episodes when I have time, but that'll probably only comfort my disdain for this desperate woman. The world is made worse by people like herself, selfie factories, the Kardashians, Sean Penn, Guzmán, preachy Hollywood liberals, Instagram "models", wannabe edgy TikToking children, etc... Severe narcissists are truly a pain. smh
