The series Paquita la del Barrio is “the fictionalized life story of the beloved Mexican singer,” according to Univision.

The Grammy-nominated singer, who earlier this year attended the launch of the series in Mexico, said the story of her life is hard to watch because there’s been so much heartache, but she was pleased that her story was being told. She even hinted at writing a book.

Paquita is known for singing about broken hearts and cheating men.
