El Chapo Trial: Emma's interview, "I am a normal person"

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat Op-Ed
Inset Emma at 17
I wasn’t interested in watching this Telemundo interview with Emma Coronel, the wife of El Chapo.

But I was encouraged to do so, told it was informative.  I still feel these interviews are more self-serving at this point and probably surfaced because of the negative press attributed to Coronel, and the window to humanize her husband, at any level, slammed shut when the trial began.  She was to conduct interviews in October.  She decided not to do interviews. 

And she is an excellent interview.  She artfully dodges delicate questions, answers others with grace and good articulation.  She is warmly guarded, beams when speaking about her 7 year old twin daughters, and does humanize her husband in a way that others can’t. 

Her interview was not without missteps, nothing a little more prep and small adjustments wouldn’t have secured.


For example; the question about the Instagram account, attributed to her.  The account is bursting with photos of an opulent lifestyle and that infamous Barbie Birthday party for her twins.

As I previously reported, she says the IG account is not hers; at this point she gives an impression of being self-righteousness and entitled.  Her tone changes slightly.  She says “there is an investigation”, being conducted.  

What?  If so, Mexico could quickly discover the person behind the catfish account. Catfishing is an epidemic.  The act of using catfish accounts as a hoax on social media, pretending to be someone else, and public people are heavily targeted.  The former and current president of Mexico and just about every other country, including the U.S. have been catfished.  A sign of the times.   Yet for Emma Coronel, there is a special investigation.

Her best defense would have simply stated it is not hers, and that it is something commonly happening to high profile people.

The other misstep was about where her money is derived from.  She should have been prepared.  At a time where her husband says there is no money for attorneys, she says she has her own money and is hazy in describing those points of income.  She finally says it is from “my father”.  Surely assets from Inez Coronel Barreras, can’t be pristine.


Mexican Federal Police arrested Coronel Barreras, his son Inés Omar Coronel Aispuro, and three other people at a warehouse in Agua Prieta, Sonora. Seized were automatic weapons, at least 550 pounds (250 kilograms) of marijuana in the 2013 arrest. Coronel Barreras coordinated drug trafficking shipments for the Sinaloa Cartel from Mexico through the Arizona border crossing; he played an important role in the overall operations of Chapo. 

She contends she has been investigated, and found clean.

She comes off as a solid supporter of her husband, says she has faith in the system, and future, and bottom line she wants everyone to know she is just a “normal person”.

Overall I give her interview an A- good job, with a few exceptions.

Notable Topics:

She is the only person that can attend the trial, she doesn’t give details.

She says she can’t say if she can attend every day

Of course it bothers her when witnesses say bad things about Joaquin, because she knows the opposite to be true.

She talks about the denied court hug

Says Cooperative Witnesses will say anything that benefits them as they are facing life sentences

She is asked and answers about “Cell-Gate”

Did not want to discuss the song 'Un Puño De Tierra' that CW pilot says was played as a threat against him.   She says the song that reminds her of Joaquin the most is ‘Cruzando Cerros y Arroyas’ [crossing hills and streams] She says Joaquin likes all genres of music.

She has never feared for her safety

In New York, rarely is she recognized

She never saw anything unusual [illegal activity] and blames the media for his reputation from the hype.  On the other hand Chapo likes the media pressure to assure transparency.

The twins lead a normal life and adore their father

AMLO: hoping he brings peace

She has not watched Narcos or any series

She doesn’t know about Chapo giving Kate Castillo rights to his story.  She warns if there is a project, Castillo must speak to her.

Defense attorneys are doing an amazing job at discrediting and refuting testimony from CWs

After the trial she just wants peace, somewhere where she can live as everyone else---normally.

  1. Fuck no! She is the very definiton of a Gold Digger. She cannot say she married Chapo for his good looks. Nor can she say she stays with him because of Chapos awesome personality after he cheats on her constantly. In this case she can be a swinger also if she allows/enjoys that?
    What I, most disagree with women like this is that instead of helping their husband get out of that lifestyle they just sit back and reap the rewards which constitutes the GD name also.

    7. idk if the Kardashians would date Mayo, but Vicentillo has a great chance. I am AMAZED at how many female "fans" he has. LMAO I've never seen that happen with any other druglord. Women offering to visit him and not exactly to talk.

    8. Hey people have different looks that they are attracted too ugly people to somebody else are beautiful but in this case it was the power and money

    9. Hell yes. Vicentillo is one hot stud muffin! He gives off this GQish vibe! Always pictured in tip top shape. Maybe not so much no more with that 50 thread count jumpsuit😒😒 but who am I kidding! It doesn't take away from his scrumptious swag 🤤

    12. @10:55

      why? Actually, I had never noticed until I saw the craze online. He's very fucking good looking lol I never said I admire his lifestyle and whatnot. I just think he's hot. Simple. (If you thought that was cheerleading you need to check his fans on insta, fb, pinterest, etc. I am nothing compared to those crazy girls lmaooo)

      @8:21 Agreed. He def does look appetizing. He's the only good looking drug lord I have seen. Do you know if he will testify at Chapo's trial? I am hoping he does just so I can see pics of him on TV :)

  7. I think even the Mencho Loyalists here on BB will have to agree that Chapo beats Mencho when it comes to who has the hotter wife

    1. True! Menchos wife is busted looking to be honest. That being said I don't believe Menchos wife is a gold digger cause her family had money way before Mencho did.

      Delete
    2. I think Menchos style is to keep the old lady even after she lost her good looks long time ago, and to have side hoes everywhere whereas Chapo married countless women.

      Delete
    3. Make that wives. Plus chapo was around sinaloa, durango, chihuahua y sonora plenty of pretty girls round them areas. And well mencho got michoacan, puebla , guerrero cuz i don't think Jalisco ladys btw mostly white or light skinned mexicans will mess with said chango.

    1. as an american she must report worldwide income and file a tax return with the IRS each year. Just because you live outside the United States your obligation doesn't stop at the border. I know because of our business. both individual and corp tax returns must be filed, as well as tax returns in the country the citizen is doing business in. there is a small exemption but a filing is still required.

  11. Nice piece Chivis. It will be interesting to see how the lives of the twins unfolds. Unfortunately, once the courtroom drama end, their lives may become less than idyllic. We really do not know who or what is behind the curtain. Children deserve the best even under adverse circumstances.

  12. Stop putting this woman down and assuming things that you have no clue about, she does not have to say shit! She has two children to protect, what? Are you jealous of her? I bet you are , and I bet you are not beautiful like her either ! Get a life!!!! Think what you want! Look in the mirror and kick rocks , cant walk in these shoes and never will!

    2. at 9:57....whats worse than a cartel nut hugger?? A cartel wife nipp clinger! No need to get so upset over this article.
      And...no one wants to walk in this womans shoes....they would have to sleep with lil chapo!

      Delete
    3. When she says she gets upset when witnesses say one thing in Court but cshe knows it's the exact opposite ", then that is an admission by her to knowing her husband's business. She is treading on thin ice.

    4. 2:11 Are you that dumb? What they are saying is she is acting like he didnt do anything illegal..

  13. normal? she almost appears that way, but dishonest. It would be best if she drew limits to the questions than looking stupid. Like the question of her noticing anything strange, she answers no. How abut the guys with the ak47 guarding the condo, for starters? and the money question was a massive failure. She is an American citizen, that is why she can move around freely in the US. she says it is because she is cleared. I agree her performance was good overall, but I also agree there should have been a little more prep for those tough questions. and I also agree this doesn't help 'Joaquin' at this juncture.

    Congratulations on the excellent coverage, it is the best to be found. signed, American in the UK

  16. Emma presents well. Most people let alone a young woman like her could speak calmly and project a non combative attitude towards the massive US legal system. Emma is no pushover but she also doesn't push over her interviewers; in fact, she could very well be taken as a ladylike wife of a prominent politician if one didn't know her background.

    Aside from wearing sparkles in daytime (unlike us Anglos) her attire is stylish yet appropriate. Verbally she could deflect certain questions with applumb but it is the pulling together on her jacket that gives away the physical discomfort - not for giving away sensitive information but simply she is somewhat uncomfortable about her weight.

    Her well manicured short nails are refreshing to see compared to the trashy neon painted claws many women sport.

    This may be a narco cartel blog but sometimes it's nice for a feminine touch to a story. X

    1. 11:28,

      You make her sound like a regular, productive woman, exept she isnt.

      Feminine touch is a positive addition/influence a woman has on a given issue/situation, and there is not one positive from her on any issue and no amount of PR will change that.

      Your comment bout that feminine touch by her is a slap to decent women.

    3. I don’t think El Sapo has to die before someone starts tapping it. I honestly believe someone in NYC is hitting it already. She said she likes to have fun and that she has a couple of friends in NY. I’m sure they are hooking her up with some sausage. She’s just there playing the “I care and love u” card. But I believe once El Sapo gets sentenced to ADX this girl is going far away with somebody she’s in love with and taking Sapos fortune
