What Happened to Luis Miguel’s Mom? Did His Dad Murder Her?

Luis Miguel is a Mexican singer with over 260 songs with over one million plays, making him the first Latino to achieve this feat.

Surprisingly, his mother, Marcela Basteri, mysteriously vanished in 1986. According to Distractify, the Latin-American singer had a close relationship with his mother. Her mother gave him the nickname “El Sol de Mexico.”

It has been 34 years since Miguel’s mother vanished from his life; no one has heard from her or knows where she is now. The singer’s performance at Luna Park in Argentina in 1985 marked the last time he saw his mother.

She has never been found alive, leading to numerous theories about her disappearance. While some stories claimed she was murdered, others contend she is still alive and well and has other children.

What happened to Luis Miguel’s mother?

Basteri completed filming for her second film, Fever Of Love, on March 16, 1985. Fans were unaware that it would be her final appearance on the big screen. She wanted to stay with her family, but her husband insisted she travels to Spain to meet him.

She was, therefore, dropped off by her family at the Pisa airport on a flight to Madrid on August 18, 1986, and they had complete confidence that she had arrived in Spain. The marriage was already in trouble because the two had been apart for so long.

Miguel wasn’t there to discover what happened to his mother because he was then preoccupied with his tours and concerts. Several theories began to emerge from various perspectives over time.

Luis Gallego Sanchez, also known as Luis Rey, her husband, who last saw her, claimed that Basteri had left with her Italian lover.

The second and most widely accepted theory is that Rey murdered his wife to obtain money. In an interview with the Mexican entertainment show Venga la Alegria, Garcia disclosed that Rey had asked him to assist in the elimination of Marcela in 1986 so that he could have complete control over his son’s finances.

According to some reports, Rey hid his involvement with several illegal businesses by registering several companies under Marcela’s name that he founded with Miguel’s money. All of this money would be his if something happened to his wife.

According to Rey’s sister-in-law, the scheming husband drowned his wife in a pool. However, these claims and allegations have yet to be proven.

Did Lui Miguel ever find his mother?

No, Miguel has not yet found his mother, but several years after Basteri’s disappearance, the truth about the mother began to emerge. On December 9, 1992, Miguel paid his manager, Hugo Lopez, a visit and informed her that his mother had been seen leaving a bank the previous year.

The singer was desperate for answers to the questions surrounding his mother’s disappearance. He expanded his search by engaging the services of a reputable Israeli intelligence agency to monitor the new trial.

When he returned, the agent informed the singer that the woman leaving the bank was not his mother, but she did have Marcel’s passport, which she was using to gain access to his account.

The agent had photos to support his claims, citing one of them. Miguel recognized the lady as Maria, one of their neighbors in Lad Matas.

‘RHONJ’ Star Melissa Gorga Confessed to Getting Plastic Surgery and Nose Job

Melissa Gorga was made to reveal her secret.

Melissa Gorga Admitted Getting Plastic Surgery And A Nose Job

Rumors of plastic surgery by celebrities are not surprising.

However there are some celebrities who admit going under the knife, but some are always in denial. The Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHONJ) star Melissa Gorga used to be one of those.

She was surrounded by rumors of plastic surgery, especially a nose job. It started after people noted subtle changes in her appearance throughout the years in RHONJ.

However, Gorga had always dodged the question. She never admitted to having plastic surgery or a nose job but said she had good contouring skills.

Finally, on the seventh season of RHONJ in 2016, Gorga admitted to getting work done after a fight with fellow housewife Jacqueline Laurita.

It is reported that Laurita was constantly telling people around that Gorga had plastic surgery. Moreover, she was allegedly telling everyone that Gorga had four nose jobs.

The two had a massive fight over this topic. Gorga blamed Laurita for telling her secret to everyone.

She said, “Let’s be honest, it’s the worst-kept secret that I’ve had a nose job, but it’s my secret to tell, not hers.” Gorga then admitted that she had one procedure, not four like the rumors suggested.

She told The Daily Dish (via Bravo), “There was definitely not four nose jobs. Four nose jobs? I would look pretty deranged, I would think. That is insane to say four, and I don’t like that the seed was even planted because I think that’s wrong.”

Gorga also explained the reasons she wanted to hide her nose job. She noted that it was a personal thing and she was not hurting anyone with her secret.

“It’s your own business. Some people like to say, ‘Hey, I injected this, tummy tucked this,’ and that’s fine, too. It’s something that’s personal to me. It’s one of the very few things that is personal in my life at this point,” she said.

She pointed out that she had kids and did not want to reveal everything to them or her fanbase. She wanted to keep some things to herself, including her plastic surgery, but because of Laurita, she had to share it with the entire world.

She said, “ That was one of the things I wanted to keep to myself. Unfortunately, I had a crappy friend who has told the world for me.”

Melissa Gorga’s other procedures

After Gorga’s nose job was revealed, she has been more open to sharing about the procedures she has done to date. She admitted to trying out Botox and fillers, like some of the housewives in RHONJ.

Recently, in January 2023, Gorga revealed on the Jeff Lewis Has Issues podcast that she had gotten some work done on her lips. She confessed that her husband, Joe, was not a huge fan of her procedure.

But later, he grew to like it. Apart from fillers and Botox, Gorga has also gotten Emsculpt on her abs.

Is Teresa Giudice Pregnant? Behind the Pregnancy Rumors of ‘RHONJ’ Star

Is she pregnant or is it just rumors?!

Is Teresa Giudice Pregnant? Behind The Pregnancy Rumors

Ever since Teresa Giudice started dating her second husband, Luis Ruelas, there have been rumors of her being pregnant with his child.

Teresa already has four children with her first husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice. She started dating Ruelas after divorcing Joe in 2020.

They got engaged in October 2021 and officially married in August 2022. Pregnancy rumors have surrounded Guidice since 2020.

While The Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHONJ) star has constantly denied the rumors, the question never stops following her —  ‘Is Teresa Giudice pregnant?’

Here is all we know about it.

Is Teresa Giudice Pregnant?

At the time of writing, it is unknown if Teresa is pregnant or not. Regardless of the pregnancy rumors, the RHONJ star has not confirmed nor denied the rumors at the time of writing.

But looking at her social media, it seems like she is not pregnant at the moment. Her most recent post on Instagram was on May 30, 2023, where she wore a bikini and showed off her body in Puerto Rico.

She did not look pregnant, as she did not have a baby bump in the photo. Therefore, it is possible that she is not pregnant at the moment.

This is not the first time pregnancy rumors have surrounded the reality TV star. Back in November 2021, fans suspected that Teresa was expecting after she uploaded a picture with Ruelas.

Ruelas was cradling Teresa’s midriff, leading people to believe that the RHONJ star was pregnant. However, she was not expecting a baby, and it was mere speculation of her fans and followers. 

Teresa Giudice’s children

Teresa shares four children with her former husband, Joe. Teresa and Joe married in 1999 and divorced after 20 years of marriage in 2020. 

Throughout their marriage, the pair had four daughters —  Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana. Gia was born on January 8, 2001, Gabriella on October 4, 2004, Milania on February 2, 2006, and Audriana on September 14, 2009.

Gia was eight years old when RHONJ debuted, and she has been in front of the cameras ever since. She is most known for a viral clip that has been making rounds on TikTok since 2020.

Gia, aged 10, sang an original song for her family about the challenges her mother and uncle were dealing with at the time in season 3. Years later, the video emerged on TikTok, and the lyrics, “waking up in the morning, thinking about so many things,” became viral. 

Gia is a recent Rutgers University graduate who studied criminal justice and hopes to become a lawyer. After graduating from Rutgers in May 2023, Teresa posted about the milestone on Instagram. 

She wrote, “I am so proud of my devoted and intelligent daughter, Gia, for graduating [from] a stellar university, a huge milestone to accomplish in life. Seeing you graduate college is one of the most special moments in my life.” 

Gabriella, Teresa’s second daughter, appears to be more private than the rest of her family since she lacks a prominent social media presence. Teresa told PEOPLE in 2016 that her then-11-year-old daughter aspired to be a professional football player or a model. 

Years later, Teresa told The Daily Dish that Gabriella was looking at universities before her final year of high school. 

It seems like Milania, Teresa’s third daughter, will be following in her mother’s footsteps into the entertainment industry. When she was just 10 years old,  Milania was interviewed by PEOPLE in 2016.

At the time, Milania said she and her friend had always wanted to be actresses and make YouTube videos. The same year, she walked the runway at New York Fashion Week.

In 2019, she released her debut single, ‘I Just Can’t Wait to Grow Up.’ The RHONJ star talked about the song and gushed, “I think the song is so catchy! I really think it’s going to be a No. 1!,” in an episode of RHONJ.

At the time of writing, Audriana is 13 years old, and not much is known about her. She suffered greatly when her father was imprisoned and eventually deported to Italy. 

Teresa and Gia said in 2019 that Audriana, then nine years old, was tormented and bullied at school because of her father. Talking about Audriana’s interests, she is a competitive dancer and is interested in the entertainment industry.

Teresa said of her daughter, “She likes the cameras too. And Audriana was born in front of the cameras.”

Alexa Demie to Reprise Her ‘Euphoria’ Role in Sam Levinson’s ‘The Idol’

Alexa Demie to Reprise Her ‘Euphoria’ Role in Sam Levinson’s ‘The Idol’

After much controversy and talk about The Idol, its first two episodes finally premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on May 22, 2023.

Directed by Sam Levinson, The Idol follows Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp), an aspiring pop idol who wishes to reclaim her fame. After having a nervous breakdown that caused her last tour to be canceled, she resolves to reclaim her title as America’s sexiest pop star.

As a result, she begins a complicated relationship with Tedros (Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye), a self-help guru and the leader of a contemporary cult. Much information about the show was revealed after the premiere.

One of them is Alexa Demie making a cameo on the show by reprising her role as Maddy Perez from Euphoria.

Alexa Demie as Maddy Perez in ‘The Idol’

Levinson is the mastermind behind Euphoria since he created and wrote the series. Euphoria follows a group of teens in the fictional town of East Highland, California, as they search for optimism while dealing with the stresses of love, grief, and addiction. 

Some of the issues discussed on Euphoria are the same as that of The Idol like drug abuse, social media, toxic relationships, drug dealing, codependency, toxic positivity, rape, sexual assault, hookup culture, and dating violence, among others. 

Therefore, it is not a surprise that Levinson wants to create his own universe like that of Marvel and DC. After it was confirmed that Demie’s character, Perez, would appear on the show, Levinson revealed that Euphoria and The Idol happen in the same universe.

Demie appears in The Idol as a woman at the club where Jocelyn and Tedros first meet. Despite the fact that she plays a minor role in the plot, it will be a memorable throwback for Euphoria fans who may be watching this series anticipating something similar. 

Unfortunately, not much information regarding her cameo or the role her character plays in the tale has been provided. She may return in the later half of the program, but viewers must wait until the season premieres to find out.

Demie plays the role of Perez in Euphoria and likely The Idol. She is recognized for her outspoken and confident demeanor, and she is generally considered self-assured and fearless to express herself.

Perez is said to have a strong sense of style and is frequently spotted wearing beautiful and bold clothing. She has a complicated and turbulent relationship with her boyfriend, Nate Jacobs (Jacob Elordi), who is also a significant character in the series. 

Their relationship has ups and downs, including episodes of manipulation, deception, and violence. Despite their difficulties, Perez stays emotionally involved in their relationship.

Perez is shown as a devoted friend who is frequently seen supporting her small group of friends, particularly the main character, Rue Bennett (Zendaya). She is also renowned for her fiery attitude and often combative demeanor.

Overall, Perez, a character of enormous depth in the highly acclaimed television series, emerges as a fascinating combination of confidence and vulnerability. She is portrayed with complexity and depth and captivates spectators with her bold approach, unusual style, and turbulent relationships. 

The reviews of ‘The Idol’

Ever since its premiere, The Idol is receiving negative reviews, to say the least. Before the premiere, Rolling Stone ran an expose on the series in March 2023. 

According to the article, the initial tone and subject of the screenplay had altered, and instead of being focused on a woman’s quest to restore her own agency, it had allegedly devolved into a demeaning narrative bordering on torture porn. 

Moreover, there were some really troublesome occurrences on-site. However, The Weeknd and Depp defended the show and Levinson.

Levinson was also criticized for his view. Many complained that he oversexualizes and victimizes the female characters in his shows —  as evident in Euphoria.

Regardless, people were giving it the benefit of the doubt. But now, after the premiere of two episodes, the critics are being brutally honest about the show.

Critics are not happy with the presentation of the show, claiming that it is extremely sexualized. They noted that The Idol supports male fantasy which degrades women.

The series has also been called misogynistic and predatory in nature. Initially, The Idol debuted with 20% on Tomatometer of Rotten Tomatoes.

But at the time of writing, it has 9% on Tomatometer with 11 reviews. The critics’ consensus reads, “Every bit as florid and sleazy as the industry it seeks to satirize, The Idol places itself on a pedestal with unbridled style but wilts under the spotlight.”

Looking at the decrease in Tomatometer, it won’t be a surprise if it decreases more from 9% after more reviews come in.
