Do you remember Rico Suave? Well, Rico Suave himself—Gerardo Mejia—is back with a new VH1 reality TV show called Suave Says.
If you ever found yourself wondering whatever happened to Gerardo after releasing that billboard-topping hit, Suave Says will tell all. For Gerardo, life after creating a hit single led to a successful career as a music executive at Interscope Records, finding the love of his life in beauty queen Katy and starting a family. Now, Katy and Gerardo have three talented kids who are well on their way to following in the footsteps of their father—there's Bianca, a budding fashionista, Nadia, who holds the title of 'Miss Teen Beverly Hills' and dreams of becoming a singer, and Jaden, who also shares the family's passion for music and has found a calling in rap—it all sounds pretty picture perfect, right? No matter what size of family you come from, you can likely attest that no family is as idyllic as it seems from the outside. Suave Says features the crazy, hilarious, and tight-knit Mejia family (led by '90s pop star Gerardo aka Rico Suave), and we know they're not the only 'loca' family out there. As far as Gerardo sees his family life, he says: "We’re like Ricky and Lucy but with a handful of crazy kids trying to run my casa."
Whether or not frequenting beauty pageants and music events is familiar to you, there are times where the Mejia family really starts to feel like your own. In the Mejia household, you can expect squabbles between siblings, heartbreaking disappointments and plenty of teenage angst directed at parents—we've all been there at some point or other. But with life's lows come the highs, triumphed by the Mejia family's good sense of humor, high energy and a realness that will keep you checking in with the Mejia household week after week.
VH1 is asking fans to share pictures of their 'loca' family moments-- things that embarrass them, drive them crazy, make them laugh, whatever families do that’s over the top, and tag them using the hashtag #MyLocaFamily to Twitter and Instagram. All of these photos will appear on MyLocaFamily.VH1.com. You will see exclusive memes, GIFS, and clips from the show across VH1 social channels, Suave Says show social channels, and from Gerardo and the Mejia family— get ready for some hilarious and fun family photos, especially some throwbacks! We all have a 'loca' family— so go ahead, show the world yours!
