Yeah. Reading the description that's exactly what it sounds like honestly. 

I am screaming! I didnt know Stephanie was on this. What's her connection?

It honestly don’t look bad just looking at the cast but I definitely need a teaser or something so I can get a clear analysis. 

Brings back Drita memories >>>>

I am screaming! I didnt know Stephanie was on this. What's her connection?

She is some known model/ig girl wannabe musician from Florida . She was really close with Claudia sampedro from Wags before they did reality tv. I have been following her on IG for years.

I didnt know she was the daughter of a narco

I know they didnt get my ***** Steph Acevedo lol She is currently signed to Cash Money Young Money and is regularly scene hanging out with Lil' Wayne and Mack Maine , Who are her managers. She highkey replaced Shanell and Christina Milian in the Young Money crew. I always wondered why she didn't do Love & Hip Hop Miami..

Does anyone knows who is stephanie's dad?

Here are some detailed bios:

Michael Blanco
Michael Blanco grew up surrounded by crime. The youngest son of Griselda Blanco (the "Cocaine Godmother"), he followed his mother's footsteps into the drug world. For 33 years he led a criminal lifestyle, but after his mother's assassination, he decided to quit the Cartel life and launch a personal clothing brand, "Pure Blanco," to prove he could lead a legal business and life.

Marie Ramirez De Arellano
Marie was born into the cartel life. While her father kept his business private, the family heard rumors of his dealings. Now grown, she's lost touch with her family largely because of her relationship with Michael Blanco. She's given up everything for the man she loves and is devoted to "Pure Blanco," although she has a few secrets in her past that may shock even the unflappable Michael Blanco.

Kat "Tatu Baby" Flores
After the assassination of her cartel-affiliated father, Kat and her mother fled from New York to Miami, leaving their old life behind. Kat's focus now is raising her son and dealing with the prison release of her son's father, Eddie.

Stephanie Acevedo
Daughter to a former career cocaine trafficker, Stephanie's childhood was torn apart when her father was arrested and sent to federal prison. Now she is determined to move on from the past and make a name for herself as a singer through dignity and hard work.

Nicole Zavala and Michael Zavala
Twins Nicole and Michael grew up enjoying the spoils of cartel life, without losing a loved one to prison or murder. While they strive to be accepted in the community, they clash with others who don't believe they grew up with a legitimate tie to the cartel.

Carlos "Loz" Oliveros
After a member of his family was murdered, allegedly by the cartel, Loz stepped away from a life of crime. He is currently focusing on his career as a tattoo artist and raising his daughter while avoiding demons from his former life.

Dayana Castellanos
After serving two years in prison for her role in running cartel-connected marijuana grow houses, Dayana is trying to make up for lost time with her four children and start a new life.

This looks like the mess I need!! But like, I’m so confused the cartel business has to be the most secretive, underground businessed ever and their kids on here telling all their secrets? Lol I know their parents are either dead or in jail but still..

They want to make a life for themselves outside the drug world, by publically talking about the cartel on national tv. Makes sense. 

Also trust fund baby of cartel is a sentence I never imagined seeing

Lmao 

stephs dad was probably just some middle man coke dealer selling on 10th street

lmao they’re about to get themselves caught up

And we're supposed to act shocked and surprised when they act immature on instagram,  get engaged in legal troubles and entangle themselves in continuing meaningless dramatic situations... Presumably for years(unfortunately)

Hopefully the next show they make is a mix between Catfish and cops.... Continue to promote criminals and narcissists and egomaniacs.... Until they get life in jail..... Hopefully 

I say just bring back mob wives. Drita and Renee gave me life

This looks like the mess I need!! But like, I’m so confused the cartel business has to be the most secretive, underground business ever and their kids on here telling all their secrets? Lol I know their parents are either dead or in jail but still..

Im actually hype for this. Youre right the mess i need! lmao

Michael Z is hot as hell.

Wait pause the last girl is a mother of four? How old is she?

Deadass I’m so excited for this and I didn’t think I would be. 

VH1 has some great shows. Scared famous was better than expected so I see this doing well too

They might as well bring back Scared Famous with either an all new cast of social media personalities or the washedup old MTV/VH1-lebrities. :D

Much like Mob Wives the cast will only speak on whats public-community information and family life they will never go into detail on Cartel life other than being a family member and unlike the mob The Cartel is still active so they wouldn't want to incriminate themselves. 

The commercials have been interesting for this. im glad its getting the regular ratchet reality TV, dramatic format i thought this was going to be a serious documentary for a hot second.
