The first chapters of Ellas soy yo, the Gloria Trevi bioseries, have awakened a series of memories in the viewer.
The music of “Painted Mouths” becomes fashionable again, while the public wonders what has happened to the members of the band that Sergio Andrade formed in 1985 when he began to manage the career, and the life, of the Monterrey interpreter.
The girls who were part of that fleeting group that only lasted a year were: María Raquenel Portillo (later baptized Mary Boquitas), Claudia, Pilar Ramirez, Monica Murr and Gloria Trevi, who after his departure took off as a soloist, thus beginning his controversial history in the Mexican show.
The bioseries reveals terrifying events that happened around the group “Boquitas pintadas”, whose name was changed in fiction to “Wild and Rock Strawberries”. In the first five episodes you can see how Sergio Andrade physically and verbally assaults several of the members, in addition to subjecting them to high levels of stress and pressure, all of whom are minors.
