We thought the "prostitution catalog" scandal was over, but Niurka Marcos is reviving it and causing shockwaves again. The "Rica Famosa Latina" star was a guest on a radio show where she not only said that Televisa has a book where they "offer" actresses but that same catalog exists in the other television networks. "There's not only a catalog at Televisa, there's one in all the networks," she said. You want me to mention them? Telemundo, Univision, TV Azteca... Why are we acting dumb? They're everywhere, at all the networks, all of them."

"It's up to you if you exchange it for a starring role or not, if you give up your @*&**.... that's what you get," she added. "I gave 'it' up for love, I don't know how to put a price on myself. To start off, my butt doesn't have a price. Lastly, it's important to tell you that I was the wife of Juan Osorio, they all had to sit, leave or masturbate because this butt was nobody else's."

The whole scandal started when Kate del Castillo hinted on her Netflix El Chapo documentary that Televisa held events where they offered their stars to publicity buyers. In the series she said: "In the dinners with the publicists you were basically a selected if they invited you to the meetings because literally those gatherings were where they offered the actresses to publicists that are the people that put money in Televisa."

Following the controversy, Del Castillo back-peddled on those words and tried to clarify what she had originally said. "I never talked about a catalogue, I only talked about the dinners with the publicists that were the ones I was invited to," she said in an interview. "When I found out what they were, that they were basically to sit and entertain the publicists I said 'no because I work in this network as an actress, that's not my job, but if they invite me to a dinner, I'll go with my boyfriend.' I had a boyfriend at the time, that they knew about. I was offended by the proposal and when I found out what it was really about I felt even more offended, I thought it was deplorable."

Kate del Castillo also added: "That was in my time, I don't know if they still have those dinners and I am not saying that they're all like that, but in my time there they were, because I am sure things like that happened in the other networks like Azteca, Univision and Telemundo."

At the time, Carmen Salinas slammed Kate for her comments as her father still works at the network. "Your dad is working there my dear, you can't talk about the place your father works as he is a great actor and a grat man," she told reporters on "Suelta La Sopa". "It's not possible that you badmouth the company that gave us and has given us to eat and work."

Carmen Salinas added her take on what those publicists meetings were like. "The sponsors went with their children and they would take pictures with us," she said. "The producers of the shows would go with the publicists. It was a meeting where we all went, who knows what network she worked at, I don't know, but she shouldn't even talking. Eventhough I don't have a contract with Televisa anymore, it's the place that gave me food for more than 60 years. I am not an ungrateful person and I will not badmouth the Azcárraga's because all the actresses that sold their telenovelas, received a lot of money, like Thalía, Verónica Castro, they wanted all of them to be well, to the kid actors, Colunga, William Levy, they gave them all houses because they sold well."
