Singer Larry Hernandez launches reality show
Los Angeles: Singer Larry Hernandez will expose his daily life to the public on `Larrymania`, a 10-episode reality show that will begin airing Oct 7.
"I`m going to expose my edgy feelings, I`m going to present my children, my mother, my girlfriend in filming we`re doing in five US cities, and also in Sinaloa (Mexico) where I went to visit the cemetery where my grandparents rest in peace," the singer told EFE.
Hernandez, a Los Angeles native who began living in Sinaloa starting at age four, said that the programme brings personal risks.
"It was hard for me to decide to do a show about my private life, because that means making known what I love most, which is my family, including to criminal groups like those who kidnapped my brother in 2004 in Phoenix and tried to kidnap me in 2006," Hernandez said.
Hernandez, who sings "narco-corridos", ballads about the lives and often violent deaths of drug traffickers, said that despite the inconveniences the project carries with it, he opted to star in the programme thinking about his children.
"I decided to participate fully in the production because ... my two children`s friends don`t believe them that their dad is the singer who`s on television and so they`ll be part of the reality (show) in which I do what I always do, which is take care of them, play with them and tell them that I want them to do well in school," he emphasized.
