Yolanda Saldívar, who was convicted of the 1995 murder of Tejano star Selena Quintanilla-Perez in Corpus Christi, Texas, will now tell her side of the story nearly 30 years after the murder.

In a new docuseries by Oxygen, where we get hit shows like "Snapped" and "In Cold Blood with Ice T", Saldívar, who perhaps is one of the most hated woman ever, will break her silence in "Selena and Yolanda: The Secrets Between Them". Check out the trailer below.

Who asked for this?

The trailer seems to insinuate that Selena had secrets and Yolanda is ready to spill them all. The two-part special premieres on Oxygen on Saturday, February 17 and will conclude on Sunday, February 18. The episodes will be available to stream on Peacock the following day.

The docuseries will feature interviews with Saldívar's family members, who share never-before-seen documents and recordings that they claim show a different side of the story as well as interviews with those involved closely with the investigation. Complete with a timeline that lead up to the murder.

Saldívar was the president of Selena's fan club and was found to have been embezzling money from both the fan club and Selena's boutiques. After she was fired, Selena agreed to meet with Saldívar  at a Days Inn in Corpus Christi, where Saldívar would eventually shoot and kill the Tejano star.

This is all very convenient for Saldívar as she is up for parole next year, on March 30, 2025. In October of 1995 Saldívar was sentenced to life in prison with possibility of parole in 30 years and as we inch closer to that time, Saldívar probably hopes that doing this docuseries will help grant her freedom.
