This 2023 El Gordo y La Flaca is celebrating its first 25 years on the air and Lili Estefan gave an interview for Mezcalent, in which she talked about some of the moments that have marked her on the Univision show, including some of the most sad that he lived there.
“La Flaca” confessed that the most difficult moment she has experienced in the program was related to her partner Raúl de Molina, and it was an episode that occurred in the early years of the show and it was when the driver and his wife Milie lost their expecting twins.
“Go figure! We had already announced it, everyone had already sent gifts, everything had already happened, everyone was waiting for the development of Millie’s belly “, commented the presenter. And she added, “We had a ‘baby shower’ on the show and for now we have to publicly announce that Raúl and Millie had lost their twins, that was sad”.
Like that hard moment, the happiest memory he has of being on that set has to do with “El Gordo” and it is about the moment he returned, after undergoing an operation for kidney cancer. “I was the happiest woman in the world, how I missed him the time he was away!”
In addition, Lili told how her interview was like to be part of El Gordo y La Flaca and that from the beginning Univision’s plan was for it to be on the air for many years.
“I remember arriving at Mario Rodríguez’s office and he told me: ‘Lili Estefan you have to commit yourself because I think this is going to go on for a long time, you are going to be like Don Francisco, Cristina (Saralegui), El Gordo and La Flaca cannot have another Skinny through the years nor another Gordo through the years; So are you ready?”he remembered.
Finally, Lili Estefan confessed that what nobody imagines is that she eats fried meat, pork rinds, empanadas and other not so healthy dishes at noon, while Raúl de Molina is always on a diet, although he never loses the necessary pounds.
“So, what can I explain to you? She always reproaches me ‘you are ‘La Flaca’ and you eat more than me!’. Maybe people imagine that I am the one who is always dieting… no, no, I eat everything!”said the driver.
