Griselda Blanco's real life son Michael SLAMS 'disrespectful' Sofia Vergara for making his mom 'ugly' in Netflix series - and claims Colombian actress wouldn't have 'got away' with shunning the family from new show if his drug lord mother was still alive

 

Sofia Vergara has been slammed by the son of ‘Cocaine Godmother’ Griselda Blanco over her new Netflix series which tells the story of how his mother’s legendary reign paved the way for the most infamous Colombian cartel.

 

 

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com about his anger and disappointment over the fact Sofia and her team refused his offer to consult on the project, Michael Corleone Blanco, 45, labeled the rejection a ‘slap in the face’ – and said they ‘wouldn’t have got away with it’ if his mother was still alive.

Griselda’s only surviving son also criticized the ‘disrespectful’ decision to transform Sofia’s superstar looks with facial prosthetics for her portrayal of his famous mother – the first female criminal billionaire who held a reign of terror during Miami’s Cocaine Cowboys drug wars of the 1970s and ’80s.
Sofia, 51, previously revealed it took two hours in the makeup chair to transform into Griselda, and Michael made it clear he was furious with the interpretation.

‘My mother was a beautiful woman and it’s crazy that a lot of people say “No, you’ve got to look more like a drug addict”… The fact that they call her “ugly” that really offends me,’ he said.

He expressed his frustration that people always based their idea of his mother’s look from her mugshots, highlighting that using pictures taken after she spent decades in prison was not a fair representation of her.

People see the mug shots and just go from that,’ he continued. ‘But when you read my book, you’ll see that my mother was called the porcelain doll in her youth.’

‘Mayors, governors and politicians in different countries would try to court my mother…even here in the United States. She was the crème de la crème.’

Michael recalled the fact his mother was a ‘celebrity’ of sorts during her time within the Medellín Cartel, and highlighted that she had a glamorous and pampered appearance.

‘She was always a beautiful woman,’ he insisted. ‘Now, of course, 26 years of jail will age a person. And my mother was so used to pampering and she was so used to her maintenance.’

The Cartel Crew star then revealed that his mother had even paid for herself and her family members to get dental work that was nicknamed the Burt Reynolds grill at the time, costing around $150,000 per person back in 1976.

‘My mother was the first Colombian person in history to have the Hollywood grill back then,’ he gushed. ‘I’ve got it now but now it’s a lot cheaper, ha. She wasn’t a saint but I’ll tell you something… my mother was a star and a queen.’

Sofia’s new series was eight years in the making and Michael revealed h
