Jealousy, revenge, (allegedly) murderous behavior in a Beverly Hills mansion… The story we reported last week about Mexican pop star and former RBD boy band member Christian Chavez (pictured) reads like an episode of an awesome telenovela. How appropriate then, because that’s how Chavez got his start back in 2005, when he and five co-stars on the super-popular comedia Rebelde start a boy band and then in real life start a boy band and go on to become one of the biggest boy bands of all time, selling more tickets at one venue (500,000) than the Rolling Stones. That big.
And like any great telenovela, we don’t want this one to end. On the following pages we list boy band/telenovela commonalities to ponder while we wait for the next chapter in Chavez’s “story.”
