The wife of notorious Mexican drug cartel leader El Chapo will make her television debut on VH1’s docuseries Cartel Crew.

Emma Coronel Aispuro is a U.S born Mexican former teenage beauty queen who shares twin 8-year-old daughters with Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, who was sentenced to life in prison earlier this year.


VH1 announced this week Aispuro would join season 2 of Cartel Crew, which follows the lives of Cartel family members. According to the network, 30-year-old Aispuro will “open up about her life after El Chapo and her upcoming business venture.”

According to the Associated Press, 62-year-old Guzman was convicted in February on a number of various charges including trafficking hundreds of tons of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines and marijuana to the United States. Aispuro was a fixture in the courtroom watching her husband’s trial.
