THE RIVERAS RETURNED MARCH 11 FOR THE MOST HONEST AND REVEALING SEASON YET

Love, secrets, unexpected break ups, brave revelations and challenges are everything that you will see in this upcoming season of The Riveras on UNIVERSO. The third and most revealing season yet offers viewers a deeper look into the lives of Chiquis, Jacqie, Mike, Johnny and Jenicka.

The family’s relatability has been key to the show’s success – it is raw, honest, funny at times and depicts the challenges that families go through.

“I think what makes our show unique is that we’re the only English language reality television show about a Hispanic family.” Johnny, the youngest Rivera goes on to say “we’re five siblings that all connect in different ways and I think our audience likes to see that. We don’t always agree on everything or get a long all the time, but at the end of the day we are a family and we stick by each other’s side no matter what.”

The 14-episode season offers viewers a lens into their lives as they face life challenges while supporting each other.  Chiquis unveils her relationship with Lorenzo and struggles with commitment issues while continuing to build her empire and the family legacy through her music career. Chiquis releases her new single “Quisieran tener mi lugar,” a duet with her mother. When asked about who she dedicates this song to, Chiquis said “My mom used to receive so much criticism for everything and anything she did. There were a few ladies especially that loved to criticize her and me as well. I’d like to dedicate that song to them.” Her second studio album, “Entre Botellas” was released on March 16th.

Mike takes a shot at stand-up comedy, while continuing to parent his autistic daughter Luna. “As a father of a young daughter with autism, I have learned that patience is the key to being a good parent.” He adds, “the child will always come first, and I think it is important for parents to know, especially if they are separated, that you have to put your differences aside and be selfless for your child.” Jenicka also has a few changes up her sleeve and surprises Mike with the news that she will be moving back in with Chiquis and embarks on a journey to pursue a career in plus-size modeling. Having recently come out via social media, Johnny introduces his partner Joaquin to his family and friends and graduates high school. While on a pursuit for happiness, Jacquie’s recent weight loss gives her a new sense of courage to begin a career in singing and be the best mom she can be to her three children.

Tune in to UNIVERSO on Sundays at 10pm/9c to watch the most revealing, honest and raw season of this perfectly imperfect family.
