Jenni Rivera: Mariposa De Barrio La Serie Will Be Airing On Telemundo

Singer Jenni Rivera is getting a series that will cover her life on Telemundo! Titled: Jenni Rivera: Mariposa De Barrio La Serie, will tell the story of the singer, mother and all of roads that she traveled throughout her life.

We begin the story of Dolores Janney Rivera Saavedra, better known as Jenni Rivera, at the most bitter moment in her life: 1987 – Carson, California. Jenni, 18, is being cruelly abused by her husband, José Trinidad Marín, alias Trino, 24, who asserts his dominion by making her feel worthless and inferior. Despite Trino’s jealousy and constant humiliations, Jenni remains faithful to the values instilled in her by her parents, Pedro Rivera and Rosa Amelia Saavedra, and works hard to make a home for her daughter. But after a particularly bad incident with Trino, Jenni can take it no more and swallows a bottle of pills to end her suffering. She is rushed to the hospital in time, and after two weeks in rehab feels well enough to start a new life with her family – except for Trino, who insists they stay together.

Jenni can’t hide her attraction to the music scene. Pedro encourages her to audition at a recording studio, but, haunted by a childhood trauma, Jenni declines firmly and leaves.

Jenni spends two peaceful months away from Trino. With her family’s support, she starts taking classes at Long Beach State University, finds a job at a record store, takes care of her daughter, and works hard to help out at her father’s record label. But Trino remains obsessed with her and Jenni returns to him over and over, having two more children with him.

During an argument in summer 1992, Trino gives Jenni a particularly savage beating, and she finally puts an end to their relationship. She files a police report and, shortly afterward, Trino is arrested, closing the chapter on the eight most tumultuous years of Jenni Rivera’s life.

Just 23 and finally free of Trino, Jenni comes to terms with her love of music. In 1993, she and her siblings record an album of traditional songs, “Somos Rivera,” as a birthday gift for their father, who produces it under his record label. Jenni then launches her musical career, making Don Pedro’s dreams comes true.

Jenni composes her first narcocorrido, “La Chacalosa,” in 1995, releasing an album and gaining fame as the “First Lady of Corridos.” That same year, a friend invites her to Club El Farallón, where she performs “La Chacalosa” by popular request. On her way out of the club she is intercepted by a man who introduces himself as Juan López and asks for her autograph and phone number. The two begin dating and five months later, Juan López moves in with her.

Jenni and Juan López argue a lot and have a stormy relationship. When she is four months pregnant with his baby, Juan López receives a deportation notice, and Jenni marries him in a civil ceremony so he can remain in the United States.

Peace seems to have returned to Jenni’s life until one day, her sister Rosie confesses that Trino has been sexually abusing her and Chiquis, repeatedly since they were children. Knowing he’s been found out, Trino flees just before he can be arrested.

On October 3, 1997, Jenni gives birth to her fourth daughter, Jenicka Priscilla López. Upon learning that Juan López has been cheating on her, Jenni forces him to move out. But in early 1999 she gives him another chance, hoping that if their relationship survived their separation it is solid enough to last them the rest of their lives. That same year, she records the CD “Que me entierren con la banda,” which includes the original corrido “Las Malandrinas.” The record becomes an underground hit in Southern California and elsewhere.

Busy with her career, Jenni becomes pregnant with her fifth child and briefly considers ending the pregnancy, but she ultimately decides to keep the baby. He becomes a source of joy in her life and an inspiration for her music.

In 2002, Jenni is nominated for a Latin Grammy for Best Banda Album for “Se las voy a dar a otro.” She doesn’t win, but the audience acclaim she receives helps her feel confident her career is on the right track.

Jenni’s star continues to rise, but her personal life is in shambles. After trying everything to make things work with Juan López, she puts a definitive end to their relationship. Feeling ready to start a new life, she goes to a club with her friend Gladys. There she meets Fernando Ramírez, a man 10 years younger than her, never imagining he will be the great love of her life. They start dating, but Jenni soon has to contend with a formidable rival for Fernando’s affection: drugs.

In spring 2006, Jenni scores her first big hit in Mexico with “De contrabando.” On a tour in Mexico, she learns that Trino has been arrested by the FBI. After nine years, Jenni is forced to come face to face with Trino once again in court, in a trial that drags on for 14 months and forces her to relive the worst moments of their relationship.

On August 5, 2006, Jenni becomes the first Latina singer to sell out the Gibson Amphitheatre. In April 2007, she makes the heartbreaking decision to break up with Fernando, who continues to struggle with drugs. On June 20 of the same year, Trino is sentenced to 31 years in jail on nine counts, with no possibility of parole. Juan López too, is arrested and sentenced to 10 years for drug trafficking.

On December 7, 2008, Jenni is performing in Mazatlán, Mexico when she learns that Mexican baseball player Esteban Loaiza is in the audience and wants to meet her. She invites him up on stage and they start a friendship that soon turns into romance. The Rivera family approves of the relationship because he treats Jenni like a queen. She enjoys his company, but deep down she continues to miss Fernando.

On March 26, 2009, a resplendent Jenni walks the red carpet with Esteban at the Premio Lo Nuestro at the Bank United Center in Miami, Florida, where she wins the Best Female Artist of the Year award. She dedicates the award to the most important man in her life, her father. Soon after, Jenni breaks up with Esteban when she finds out he’s been lying to her.

Jenni’s popularity continues to soar, and in 2010 she wins another Premio Lo Nuestro and a Billboard Latin Music Award. In 2011, the FBI warns her to cancel her concert in Reynosa, Mexico; because of rumors a drug cartel has plans to kidnap her. She insists on going on stage and completes the show without a problem, but the experience puts enormous stress on the whole band. Around the same time, she divorces Esteban after learning he’s been cheating on her.

On December 9, 2012, Jenni performs in Monterrey, Mexico, and goes straight to the airport to take a private jet to Mexico City. On board the plane, she and her exhausted crew celebrate the show’s success. With her are her lawyer, Mario Macías; her agent, Arturo Rivera; her stylist, Jorge Sánchez (Gigi); and her makeup artist and great friend Jacob Yebale, who takes a selfie of the group. It is the last picture of a smiling Jenni Rivera, full of life and unbreakable in the face of adversity.

Her rebelliousness comes from her need for independence and it leads her into a number of situations that, paradoxically, bring her closer to Jenni and help her see that her mother has always been looking out for her.
