Season 13 of La que se avecina has already broadcast its eight episodes on Prime Video, but they have not yet arrived, except for the pilot, on Telecinco. That did not prevent, of course, that the series created by Alberto and Laura Caballero gave a lot to talk about during the weeks in which the new season debuted on streaming.
In addition to anecdotes, characters who meet unfortunate fates, and cast members who leave or return, a brutal physical change was one of the most striking features of La que se avecina season 13.
We refer, of course, to the change that Yolithe character of Miren Ibarguren, as part of the team’s attempt to hide the actress’s pregnancy so as not to include it in the scripts.
Miren Ibarguren became pregnant by the co-creator of the serie, and his partner, Alberto Caballero, and, despite this, he was part of the filming of the season for several episodes. However, including a pregnancy for Yoli was out of the plans.
The controversy of fatophobia in La que se avecina
The solution was to cause a radical change in the appearance of Miren Ibarguren, causing Yoli to gain excessive weight due to severe depression due to the break with her last boyfriend.
This solution for the actress to continue being part of the Department of the series during part of her pregnancy was not especially received by some fans, not only for the fact of resorting to the infamous “fat suits” to simulate being fat, but for the many jokes about the appearance of an overweight person.
Without a doubt, the decision was one of the most controversial moments of the entire thirteenth season of La que se avecina, and it is possible that another type of solution would have satisfied everyone.
With the arrival of the episodes of season 13 of La que se avecina on Telecinco on the horizon, it remains to be wondered if these moments with Miren Ibarguren will generate a stir again when they are broadcast openly.
