CULTURE · Meet "La Reata"

"La Reata" or "The Rope" is a sexy and mysterious lady that works along Brozo (the  Creepy Clown), a Mexican host, comedian and political commentator in his news show El Mañanero. If you thought about Krusty the Clown you're spot on.

Anyway, she doesn't talk and no one really knows who she is as she is always wearing a rather cute and ladylike luchador mask. She only acts as Brozo's secretary "assisting" him in VERY skimpy outfits and high heels. The whole thing is quite sexist for sure but it's just really about lightening up the mood while reading the news and discussing current events. She's got a huge fanbase and only last year appeared in the cover and the main spread of Playboy México in a cheeky series of photographs featuring several Mexican icons such as the bell of Dolores, la Diana Cazadora, a reenactment of  Diego Rivera's famous painting "Desnudo con Alcatraces" and just wearing a Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz habit and not much else (well, that and her mask, naturally).
