The Emotional Show Features Jenni’s Five Children, her parents, sister and best friends
UNIVERSO, the Spanish-language entertainment cable network, will air the exclusive broadcast of Remembering Jenni, Our Mom, a one hour special dedicated to the life of late Regional Mexican Regional super star Jenni Rivera on Saturday, December 9th at 7 pm ET. The on-air tribute marks the music legend’s five year death anniversary.
“December is always is a tough month for us but this year we decided to do something different. Instead of mourning our momma, we decided to CELEBRATE the great woman she is!! Thank you all for keeping her legacy alive. #JenniVive because of YOU, We ALL love Jenni,” states Chiquis Rivera.
In this special show, viewers will get to join the cast of The Riveras – Chiquis, Jacqie, Mikey, Jenicka and Johnny in an intimate barbecue gathering with Don Pedro Rivera, Doña Rosa, Rosie Rivera and Jenni’s best friends. Jenni’s family and friends will share their most memorable moments and never-before-told stories about La Diva de la Banda as they look back at some of her greatest moments of all time.
The children share about their mom’s humble beginnings when she lived in a garage in Long Beach and cherish the fun adventure in Hawaii where they swam with manta rays. Music fans will get to discover more about the full of life woman’s untraditional ways as she challenges her brother Juan Rivera in a fierce paintball battle and when she takes Chiquis and Jacqie to pole dancing lessons.
Jenicka and Johnny will also get to meet some of the Mexican-American diva’s most loyal fans who reminisce about their idol’s generous ways as Jacqie and Mikey take the streets to do trivia questions. In addition to the great memories Jenni’s children and her family recount the last moments with Jenni and the sorrow they felt when Jenni died in the tragic plane crash on December 9, 2012.
Before the special premiere, UNIVERSO will air a four hour marathon of I love Jenni beginning at 3 pm ET.
Remembering Jenni, Our Mom was executive produced by Irune Ariztoy for UNIVERSO and created by Edward Paige and Liane Su from Blank Paige Productions, the same production company that produced I Love Jenni and hit celeb-reality The Riveras.
