Was Griselda Blanco Bisexual?
Currently, there are no details about who Blanco’s girlfriend was in real life. But various reports suggest Blanco was bisexual, and “Court records show Blanco was a drug addict who consumed vast quantities of ‘bazooka,’ a potent form of smokeable, unrefined cocaine.”
The report further reads that she “would force men and women to have sex at gunpoint, and had frequent bisexual orgies.”
Who Was Griselda Blanco’s Girlfriend in the Movie?
In the film, Catherine Zeta-Jones, as Griselda Blanco, gets intimate a couple of times with Carolina, played by Jenny Pellicer.
Their love affair started after Blanco met Carolina in a club. At that time, Blanco was married and a mother to four kids. The fact that she was married didn’t stop Blanco from falling in love with Carolina.
Their so-called affair continued for many years. And Carolina stayed with the family until she died from a drug overdose.
Pellicer spoke about the raunchy scenes with Zeta-Jones and said, “It’s never such a cool, sexy thing in reality. You’ve got pasties everywhere in all the areas that they can’t show, and it gets hot and steamy, so they kind of slide off.”
She further added, “Then suddenly you’re like, ‘Oh my god, I’m doing a sex scene with Catherine Zeta-Jones.’ This is real. I definitely had moments where I felt like a little girl kissing someone, or having sex with someone, for the first time. It really is, you feel like you’re fumbling in the dark. But she was very lovely and supportive. She’s a wonderful kisser. Delightful.”
