On last night’s episode of Texicanas,Penny Ayarzagoitia continued to carry the bones of the drama with her friends. After the head pat and scolding Mayra Farret gave Luz Ortiz, on last week’s episode, tensions are high. Luz stormed away as Mayra tried to explain her actions. Mayra feels like her anger is justified, but concedes to apologize for putting her hands on Luz. Who would think calling someone “anal” would result in all of this? Chill out, Mayra. It’s not that serious.
We have the chance to meet Luz’s family and learn more about her past. Surprisingly, when she was married she was the total opposite of who she is today. Instead of a rocker chick, she was a traditional wife and mother like Lorena Martinez. What a difference a divorce will make. I can’t imagine her wearing frilly dresses and playing the role of the Stepford wife.
Texicanas is a new series on Bravo based in Antonio, TX that has one of the largest Mexican populations in the United States. The show follows six ladies as they navigate friendship, family, and, of course, drama, all while maintaining their connection to their culture and traditions. If you are looking for a mix of Real Housewiveswith a hint of a telenovela, this is the show for you!
In a twist, the story is told from the perspective of Penny Ayarzagoitia. She recounts the events that lead to relationships unraveling and friends turning into enemies. She was born in the U.S., but spent her youth in Mexico. She’s has a successful real estate career in San Antonio with husband, Raul and they have two sons.
Even though Bravo is essentially the Real Housewives network, there are other shows. Tonight is the premiere of Texicanas. Format-wise, it’s similar to the Real Housewives franchise. It focuses on a group of women in a major city. In this case, it’s a group of Mexican women living in San Antonio, Texas.
Unlike the Real Housewives shows, Texicanas has one narrrator. Penny Ayarzagoitia shares her point of view throughout the series. But don’t worry, the other cast members have their own on-camera interviews too.
Buckle up, Bravo lovers. There’s a new docuseries in town. Texicanas, a brand new show, will be premiering soon on a small screen near you.
The story follows the daily lives of six Mexican women in San Antonio, Texas. Though the premise may sound a little similar to the Real Housewives franchise, fear not. This fun group of girls have got a unique series with a unique twist!
