WHO IS THE PUPUCHURRO IN “I AM BETTY, THE FEA”?
In the successful telenovela “Yo soy Betty, la fea”, Raúl Santa played Efraín Rodríguez Merchán ‘Don check’, who was married to Sofía López, one of Ecomoda’s secretaries and part of the ugly barracks. She lived very much in love with her husband until he decided to leave her for a younger woman: Jenny García, the ‘Pupuchurra’, who was an aspiring model.
This situation unleashed the woman’s anger, because every time she saw her ex-husband, she did not hesitate to demand the maintenance of her children, something that he had not fulfilled for some time when he decided to go with the girl.
The times we have seen him in fiction, Pupuchurro had many fights with Sofía for financial reasons, although the times he heard his ex-wife’s voice he got extremely nervous.
