Mexican Actress Kate del Castillo Explains Flirtatious ‘El Chapo’ Texts With Diane Sawyer 

Mexican actress Kate del Castillo and Hollywood actor Sean Penn have been embroiled in controversy since the revelation that they met with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the most wanted drug lord in the world, in person while he was on the lam last year.

Mexican authorities want to interrogate her as a witness in an investigation and have insinuated they could be potentially investigating her for allegedly taking money from Guzman for her tequila company, Honor del Castillo, according to the newspaper El Universal.

This past January, del Castillo’s private text messages with El Chapo were leaked to the media, suggesting another kind of scandal — that the two of them could be romantically involved.

But del Castillo is now sharing her side of the story and insists in an interview with ABC News’s Diane Sawyer that there was nothing romantic between her and the drug kingpin, whom she met in person last October.

del Castillo told Sawyer:

“Oh, my God, no, not at all. It’s just so not like that, and that’s one of the frustrations I have. That I wish I could have every single text that I sent with me, you know, to tell everybody how out of context they are. There was no reason why we wouldn’t be friendly.”

Del Castillo says the leaked messages were selectively chosen and released out of context.

“They have put them out of context. So it looks like I’m having an affair, almost, with a guy and that’s what makes me so angry.”


Del Castillo, 43, became a superstar after she appeared as the lead character, Teresa Mendoza, an ordinary woman who transforms into a fearless drug lord in the telenovela “La Reina del Sur” or “The Queen of the South.”

She said Guzman first reached out to her in summer 2014 through his lawyer, who she said told her that Guzman wanted to give her the rights to make a movie about his life. The drug lord had been re-arrested in February 2014.

She claims she jumped at the chance and told almost no one about the project, except for two movie producers she brought on as she began to assemble her team.

Female Flight Attendant Abandons 66 lbs Of Cocaine During Random Security Check 

An airline employee who abandoned nearly 70 pounds of cocaine in her carry-on bag at LAX was being sought by federal drug agents.

The woman was selected for a random screening at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, according to the DEA.

During the encounter with Transportation Security Administration members, the airline employee “abandoned her belongings and escaped on foot,” DEA spokesman Timothy Massino said in a statement.

A search of her belongings turned up about 30 kg of cocaine (or about 66 pounds).

The female airline employee was considered a fugitive, Massino told KTLA news.

He would not say what position the woman held with an airline, nor did he name the airline.

In light of the incident, the union for Los Angeles airport police officers issued a statement calling for screening of all passengers and employees.

“Flight attendants and other crew members are not normally subjected to searches, but this is a perfect example of why Los Angeles airports need 100% screening of all passengers and airport employees. Total employee screening is realistic and achievable and it should happen here at LAX.”

Two carry-on roller bags were abandoned by a flight attendant at the terminal, the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers’ Association stated.

Witnesses said that after being directed to the screening location, the woman kicked off her Gucci high heels, made a cellphone call and made a quick dash down the up escalator.

Marshall McClain, president of the union representing LAX airport police officers expressed concern that officers were alerted about the unattended bag but not a suspicious person running through the airport.

“With her bringing this amount of narcotics in the airport, chances are this wasn’t her first time through. We’re hoping this is a wake-up call to airport management as well as federal legislators.”

5 Woman Drunken Brawl Breaks Out Mid Flight To LAX Airport


A brawl over a loud boom box broke out on a Spirit Airlines flight about to land at the Los Angeles International Airport.

According to ABC7, the plane was heading from Baltimore to Los Angeles when two women began playing music loudly from a boom box.

When another passenger asked the women to turn down the music, the boom box owners instead turned up the volume and taunted passengers.

Shortly after, a wild scene was caught on camera as five women began fighting mid-flight.

LAX police met the plane at the gate and all five women involved were taken off the plane.

Surprisingly, none of the women were arrested or charged.

Smuggled Cocaine Found In Colombian Woman’s Breast Implants

Drug traffickers will go to any lengths to get their dope across international borders.

In Berlin, a 24-year-old Colombian woman was arrested at Frankfurt airport after she was found to be carrying 1kg of cocaine inside her breasts.

Airport officials became suspicious after they found fresh operation scars below the woman’s breasts during a search and complained of severe pain.

The drugs had been inserted into her body during a hasty operation.

She was sent to a local hospital where doctors removed two 500-gram lumps of cocaine wrapped in plastic from each of her breasts.

The drugs have a market value of ($220,000) and were destined for Spain.

Airport spokesman Hans-Juergen Schmidt said:

“This is the first case in Germany in which drugs have been smuggled in this fashion.”

Customs agents were shocked by what they said was the amateurish surgery.

Schmidt said:

It shows how drugs smugglers “are completely indifferent to human life and the life-threatening conditions of their drug carriers.”

The woman, who said she has three children in Colombia where she worked in agriculture, is facing drug trafficking charges and jail time.

One word. Ouch!

Female Store Clerk Chases Off Robber With Her Bare Hands And A Hammer


Georgia gas station employee fought off would be robber with her bare hands and a hammer.

This female might be one of the toughest chicks I’ve seen in awhile. She brought a hammer to the gunfight. Talk about badass! 

A would be robber came into to the Keysville Convenience Store on employee Bhumika Patel’s shift with intensions of sticking up the place. Instead of getting away with the cash, he ended up getting attacked by the fiesty lady clerk. Ultimately, he was chased out of the store by Patel and her hammer. LOL!
Here’s the gist:

The teenager waltzed into the gas station shop on Tuesday, picked up a can of Mountain Dew and approached the counter to pay for the soda. 

When Patel popped open cash register’s drawer to make change, the normal transition turned violent: the teen whipped out a gun from his hoodie pocket and pointed it at the clerk.


Patel told WFXG news after the stickup:

“I said, ‘Go ahead. You wanna shoot me? Go ahead.’” 

Patel credits her faith in a higher power for her stoic bravery in the ordeal:   

“I just believe strongly in my religion and my God, if he wants to save me, nobody can touch me,” she said. “That’s why I’m like, ‘No.’ I have my God everywhere with me.”

 “That’s why I’m like, ‘No.’ I have my God everywhere with me.”
