Marcela Tinayre analyzed live, before the cameras of Controversy in the bar (America, Monday to Friday at 23.15), the statue they inaugurated of her mother, Mirtha Legrand, in Villa Cañás. And, overwhelmed by the outrage caused by that image, she said: "He's a monster!"
It all began on the air of the aforementioned cycle this Monday night, when the imitator Claudio Rico, in the skin of Oscar el Negro González Oro, asked the production to show a photo of the sculpture.
"This is terrible!" said Alfa as soon as a postcard of the metal figure with a bronze-colored patina that was made to the diva in her hometown appeared on the screen.
"They wanted to make a statue of your mother," Rico told the host. "No, stop fucking with me!" she said, laughing.

"Compared to that of (Marcelo) Gallardo, this is a work of art," said the Negro Oro impersonator. "But what is this monster?" asked Marcela, indignantly.
"They wanted to make Mirtha and Inés Pertiné came out," added the comedian in reference to the former first lady of the Nation causing laughter from everyone in the studio.
"I'm going to ask my mother if she's aware of this thing that is a mamarracho... There is no love that pays this, a woman with one of the most beautiful faces on television, of life, that monster, "continued the daughter of the renowned host and actress.
And she went on to say, astonished: "Mom could never have approved such a ... It's not even hyperrealism, it's a monster. Mom has divine teeth. See what that is... But who did that?"

"Strange that they didn't consult him... I refuse as a daughter that this is my mother. It's a monster!" repeated Juanita, Nacho and Rocco's mother.
Then, Marcela contacted Mirtha. "Hello, Mom, how are you? What is that monster they have made? We are impressed with the statue," he said, without hesitation.
"I don't know who did it," Chiquita acknowledged from the other end of the phone line. And when asked by Flavio Mendoza, if he had liked the statue, the television star acknowledged: "No, not really."
"How can you like that?" her daughter chimed in, visibly angry. "I don't want to speak anything against my city Villa Cañás, nor the Cañaseños because it is an effort. I don't know who did it, but obviously it's not the oval on my face. It's not me. I look weird," the diva continued.
And he revealed: "When they sent me that photo I still told them thank you very much." To which Marcela reacted: "Oh, mom. You were too diplomatic. You have to tell them that, please, there is a problem with statues and sculptors lately."

"But the teeth. It's horrible. I refuse to let that be you," Marcela told her mother. "But hey, what do you want me to do?" was Chiqui's reply.
"I don't know where this came from, I didn't know they were making a statue," said the iconic television personality. He added: "I have friends in Villa Cañás, so I'm going to call them and ask who was the sculptor or sculpture and who paid for it."
"It doesn't really favor me at all. I don't know what picture they took," were Legrand's last statements before her daughter changed the subject.
Mirtha Legrand's first reaction to seeing her bronze patinated statue
After one of the two sculptures of Mirtha Legrand that they discovered this weekend in Villa Cañás, Santa Fe, went viral, the diva broke the silence and was grateful for the tribute in question.
"They sent me photos from Cañaseños. There is José, my brother, who was also worshipped in Villa Cañás. It is very exciting and I am extremely grateful for this tribute, "said the host in dialogue with PrimiciasYa without clarifying if she had seen photos of the event in general or its statues.

And he closed: "A pity that they did not put Goldy, she was always in contact with many members of Villa Cañás. The truth is that the three brothers were very cañaseños, but the most linked was our beloved José. Very emotional."
Hours before, the sculptor in charge of the works, Daniel Melero, clarified in a note that they made for The voice of the interior: "Two sculptures were made: one that is hyperrealistic, with its skin color, texture and natural hair, which as it is more delicate is inside the room; and the other that is made of metal with a bronze-colored patina that is outside."
