They are temptation and its leader Paula Arias are at the center of a new controversy after the interview they gave Cory Salgado and Zuley Espinoza, from Rumba Negra, to the YouTube podcast “JC Digital” on September 7. The singers affirmed that they were deceived and humiliated during and after the casting organized by “En boca de todos” to find the new vocalist of the salsa group.
Was the winner never part of Son Tentación?
The casting to find the new vocalist of Son Tentación was organized in September 2018, as an eight-date reality show within “En boca de todos”.
Four girls made it to the final:
Cory Salgado, Zuley Espinoza, Naomi Mendoza and Jacqui Fuentes; the latter won the casting, but she never joined the girl group.
“It is not (in Son Tentación). She was never in or out with the group.”affirmed Zuley Espinoza, who summoned the other two finalists to form a new group: Rumba Negra.
“We lived the dark side of music when we were participants in that reality show,” said Cory Salgado.
“It was a mockery for all the girls”. And he added that what came next turned out to be humiliating for them.
Rumba Negra humiliated in “EBDT”?
black rumba, the group began to be required by various brands and companies. “Some people don’t like that” Zuley Espinoza indicated.
The group, which had already been sponsored by Tula Rodríguez, was invited back to the program for a sketch. Upon arrival they took away the clothing and shoes they were wearing, to give them another black one despite their refusal.
In front of cameras, they were presented as a new group that came to ask for support “because they don’t have a job.” “We had a full agenda,” said Zuley Espinoza.
Another unpleasant surprise was receiving jester suits and shoes as a gift.
Later, a video was presented of Paula Arias offering Rumba Negra a job as an opening act at an event they had in a nightclub.
Angered by the situation, Zuley Espinoza complained to Tula Rodríguez off-camera about what had happened and she reminded him that,
“On television, nothing is what it seems.”
The singer tried to obtain the recording of the program to file a lawsuit with her lawyer, but the video was removed and she did not find a copy on YouTube either.
