Gloria, Lili, Emily: breaking down taboos and empowering latino families in ‘Red Table Talk’

Three generations of success talk openly about inspiration, letting go of fears, stigma and more.


One of the most recognized and beloved families in entertainment makes an important social milestone, by hosting an open dialogue, not very common in the Latino community. Gloria, Lili and Emily Estefan have put all their cards on the table as part of the show ‘Red Table Talk: The Estefans,’ where they freely explore personal issues including: sexuality, divorce, trauma and the love they have experienced throughout their lives. And, despite being public figures, the Estefans have been characterized for being a very private family. For this reason, witnessing their most intimate stories not only makes big media headlines, but also inspires many people, who do not dare to sit down with their loved ones to exchange ideas that are still considered family taboos.

During an intimate chat with HOLA! USA this fearless family trio explain to us what motivated them to make this new version of the show that Jada Pinkett Smith hosts with her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and her daughter Willow on Facebook Watch. Likewise, Lili Estefan reveals exclusive details of her new single stage after legally signing her divorce from the father of her children, Lorenzo Luaces, and about the suitors who have tried to pursue one of the most well known media personalities of Spanish-speaking television. Gloria explains the great responsibility that comes with having become the matriarch of her dynasty, setting the example for new generations and her incredible alliance with Emilio, her life partner. Emily uncovers her impetus to take over the world with a modern vision based on her parent’s steadfast example.

Without further adieu, we invite you to navigate through the intricacies of the Estefans, as they address the complexities of life.

“I also think that there are so many Latino families, from all over the world, but, it‘s a Latino thing or I see it a lot. It’s a large family and very close all the time, but also in those families many times things are not talked about. They don’t talk about sex, they don’t talk about drugs.” Photo: Aysia Marotta

“I think this pandemic has given the three of us a different perspective on how to run this show and how to do it with honesty and love and authenticity. My aunt and I talked about it. Before March we had to have recorded, I was not as ready as I am now. She had just signed the divorce that month.” Photo: Aysia Marotta
