“My mom doesn’t come back anymore, not to work or anything”said the interpreter’s only son, 91, in an interview for the “Venga la alegría” program on May 19.
The businessman argued that the family decided that the “Diva del Cine de Oro in Mexico” should stop, mainly for his physical well-being.
“Not at the moment (he will return to the theater), I think your health comes first. That’s what was worrying us, which was why we made the decision to no longer commit anyone in terms of production or the public that feel uncomfortable being in an already difficult role for her or that she is not developing as she would like, “he said.
He added that, in part, the family is satisfied to have let Silvia Pinal once again experience the energy of the public in the theater.
“She did what she wanted to do, which was to get on stage, we saw it in her eyes and she had the great satisfaction of feeling lights, an audience, applause and a standing ovation.”
Luis Enrique said that the opinion of his sister Alejandra Guzmán had great weight in their preference to remove her from the theater. The “Queen of Hearts” was concerned about the controversy that broke out around the couple of presentations that her mother made, in which he was seen with some health complications.
“Alejandra expressed her concern to me and Sylvia and I sat down and said ‘Now’. With all this trouble that’s popping up around the play, I think it’s not even what it should have been anymore, that it’s a children’s play,” he added.
