The legendary and popular Mexican TV show The guy from 8, Created and starring Roberto Gómez Bolaños “Chespirito”, it was so successful that in 1973 it was distributed in several Latin American countries, obtaining high ratings.
However, it seems that international fame and notoriety were not synonymous with attractive salaries for the cast members. Or at least that’s how Florinda Meza made it known after a rumor circulated a few weeks ago that the actress would have an accumulated fortune of 20 million dollars.
Before the speculations, the star of The chanfle decided to come to light to deny everything and reveal how much money he earned per episode in the Show of her late husband.
In an interview with several media outlets, taken up by the sun risesThe 73-year-old actress was questioned about rumors that she has a fortune of 20 million dollars in her bank account, something that the widow of “Chespirito” flatly denied.
I wish it were true. What a great nonsense, Roberto used to say: ‘We have much less than people think, but more than I dreamed of’ because we knew how to live simply. I don’t live in Pedregal or in Las Lomas, I have a house in the Del Valle neighborhood, which is a proletarian neighborhood.
In addition, the star took advantage of the meeting with the press to beg him not to expose his security, because it bothered him that they invent these types of statements, since they can put him at risk, emphasizing that he has never accumulated a great fortune, as well as that neither selling all his properties he would get as much money as they indicate.
It bothers me, it scares me because of the plagiarism that there is. Never, neither by selling my house in Cancún nor the one in Mexico could I raise that amount, not even for a joke. I have never had that amount, who became a multimillionaire in dollars was the company, not us.
Finally, to clarify the situation surrounding the controversy generated by her supposed fortune, the interpreter of Doña Florinda confessed how much she earned for each chapter of The guy from 8.
The guys from ‘Friends’ were paid a million dollars per episode, I never managed to earn even 50,000 pesos (approximately $2,500) per episode, the most I earned for an episode was 10,500 (approximately $525) and very in the end, but weights. If they had paid us 10 thousand dollars per chapter, I would be a millionaire.
