he cooks, he works, he dances, he is faithful, but he is not the perfect man


“I like the austere life. I don’t pay attention to what the neighbor builds nor do I crave much around; I like to live surrounded by chickens, by nature, without much luxury,” says actor Gregorio Pernía, whom we currently see every night in the new version of Fernando Gaitán’s novel Till money do us part. And he just says it because, at 52 years old, he lives a great work and family moment. That is why he is so grateful to Divine Providence for what he calls a second chance, which has borne fruit in Colombia and in the United States, where he is a celebrity in the Latino community, who treats him well and with whom he has connected to the point that in recent years he has been a prophet far from his land.

“My career, in a way, was slipping a little bit. She had made a novel, love storm, that I starred with Mabel Moreno in 2015 and that was not successful. But it came out again Without breasts there is paradiseand we were back in force for four seasons”.

Thanks to the resurrection of Titi, his character in the series, a show was invented, along with his wife, Erika Rodríguez, whom he married in 2007. It is a montage between monologue and stand up called Hey Hail Mary, with which he has literally toured the United States and has him traveling the world. There, with Titi in tow, he entertains people with invented anecdotes and others that are part of his real life. He added to the show the famous Coloso de Jalisco, the character who also opened doors for him in The mariachi’s daughter.

This year has been the consolidation of that show, which already exceeds 90 presentations. “We have done more than 40 performances in the United States alone, but we have performed in Canada, Australia, Dubai, Central America, Ecuador… Soon we will go to Barcelona, ​​Madrid, Finland”. And Colombia when? “At the blacksmith’s house… Oops,” she replies.

“More in love than ever”

It is a work machine and it does not stop. In addition to the shows, these days Gregorio is recording Telemundo’s famous Top Chef VIP contest, which opens on August 9. Thanks to his participation in Masterchef Celebrity, he was received as an international star. And it is not for less, Pernía also knew how to win the affection of the community when she participated together with her daughter, Luna del Mar, in the reality show Así se baila. The Latino vote was moved by the father-daughter relationship. Both came out winners and took home the top prize of $200,000.

“I’m always doing something, you have to pay bills. If I take care of it, I will never worry. I am not one of those who wait for a call because I am embarrassed to ask for a job, no”He says.

But he clarifies that family time is essential and is not negotiable. “Human beings are very complex. Nobody knows what happens when a person comes home from work, if the colleague has a problem or not. On May 24, a friend he had met in Los Angeles called me and wanted to talk to me, the woman had left him and the next day he killed the mother in San Antonio, Texas. I had to call him and I didn’t. It was quite a tragedy. That upset me, but those things have to be taken into account, because it’s not just making money, but spending time with the family”.

Gregorio refers to the episode of the urban artist Fabián Aranda Rodríguez, who is serving a sentence for having murdered his mother.

“Since then, I value my family more and more. I’ve been through a lot. I’ve been working since I was 7 years old, I had an arepa stand at 17, I sold roses in Miami without speaking English, and I don’t stop. I made mistakes out of pride, but the last 14 years have been dedicated to my wife and children. I am more in love with my wife than before! Erika is a woman committed to me, with the children, we make a team. I take them everywhere, I can’t be alone”it states.

Today he feels that the affection that people give him is a way of reaping what he began to sow 15 years ago. “Instead of going on a trip or partying with friends at a party, I prefer to share with my family.”

Enjoy what you do without eagerness and without attachments. “I don’t like to stay in one place. We have changed houses 13 times, but I like to transform the atmosphere. I don’t travel without my family, and if I have a project abroad, I don’t mind wasting time as long as I have my family by my side: Luna, who is cheerful, and Valentino, who, at 10 years old, is such a soul. pretty”.

The 50 came to him with some crisis, more out of vanity (now he applies creams) and because his physical energy is not the same as before, but he likes to see the Gregorio he meets in the mirror. “Mistakes have been made that I regret, such as infidelity, suddenly pride, which is what God punishes the most, but today I am more grounded, I want to live life in a different way. I want my children to graduate as good human beings, supportive, generous. That is what I want most, ”she concludes.
