Biographical synthesis

Her early years were marked by the separation of her parents, María Luisa Sanders and Augusto Giménez Aubert, who would later form another family and give Susana three brothers.

Susana Giménez is one of the most popular artistic personalities in her country, Argentina. Model, in its beginnings, actress, when fame boosted her career, television host of her own program and also a businesswoman, Giménez, has been working in her country for more than 40 uninterrupted years and in recent years, she has become sadly famous for her criminal activities (smuggling the most successful woman on television in her homeland thanks to the fabulous success of her own television show, which this year is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

In 1987, he began to host Hola, Susana , an entertainment program that would be all the rage on viewers.

In the 1990s, Giménez would continue to do her show with great success, although in the mid-decade her name had to be changed to Susana Giménez, although she had to endure the separation of her husband, Humberto Roviralta, after an episode that included the launch. of a porcelain box from the diva to her spouse.


Susana Giménez is the highest paid actress in Argentina and continues to conduct her show with very good audience levels.

She completed her basic studies at La Anunciata school and later graduated as a primary school teacher although she never practiced as such since at 19 years of age she decided to start a career as a model.

In 1969 she stopped being one more model and rose to fame thanks to her participation in the commercial for a soap from the Cadum brand in which she pronounced the word “Shock!” Immediately after, there was no one who did not know this beautiful young woman and who did not use the catchy expression of shock. Hired by the producer Héctor Cavallero’s agency, Susana, she did not stop appearing on magazine covers and at different events.

From the seventies onwards, she began her development as an actress with various participations in cinema, theater and television; in 1971 he debuted in theater with the play The butterflies are free . In cinema, the most outstanding thing he did at that time was the film La Mary , with the boxer Carlos Monzón , with whom he had a famous romance at the time.

He also ventured as a vedette in the magazine theater with the great comic capos of those times such as: Alberto Olmedo and Jorge Porcel .

Other prominent titles in theater were also Sugar and The Woman of the Year , meanwhile, her last film participation was in 1999 in the comedy Esa maldita rib .

But without a doubt the great popularity that she enjoys today in her country and in Latin America was given by her own television show, Hola Susana, which debuted on the state channel, ATC at that time, and which was inspired in that of the Italian singer Raffaella Carrá .

In 1991, he signed a contract with the private television station Telefé to transfer his show there, to which he changed the name to Hello, Susana, we are calling you . One of the pillars of his program was the telephone games in which the viewer could win millionaire prizes.

Another of the ingredients of her show were the interviews and the participation of notable figures from various fields such as: musical, acting, political, sports, among others, that she herself interviews in her living room.

Both her program and herself as a host were distinguished on several occasions with the Martín Fierro Award , the most important award for the Argentine radio and television industry.

Since 2008, she also has her own magazine, Susana , a traditionalist magazine that especially addresses issues of interest to non- feminist women  .

While reporting to an archeologist in his television “living”, she told him that in Patagonia he had unearthed a dinosaur. Susana Giménez was amazed:

A dinosaur? Alive?!

In 2012, when he invited the driver and journalist Juan Alberto Badía (1947-2012) to his «living room» –visibly deteriorated, since he was in the last stages of a mediastinal cancer , and this would be his last appearance in public–, Susana Giménez exclaimed with apparent candor:
“How skinny!
―Yes, Susana, I have cancer.

In September 2016, he invited his former partner Matías Alé (40 years younger, from whom he separated due to his addiction problem) to his television program:

I see you splendid, the look good, clear. You always seemed loving to me. You are good. Womanizer, but good. There is nothing wrong with being a womanizer: it would be worse if you liked men!

Susana Giménez [1]

Quickly, the social networks were filled with messages rejecting the homophobic phrase of the “diva”.

Private life

Regarding his personal life, Giménez has maintained throughout his life sounded romances. At 17, she married the father of her only daughter, Mercedes, and soon divorced. After that, she had romances with boxer Carlos Monzón , who beat her (later Monzón would punch his wife, Alicia Muñiz, for what had to serve several years in prison). She lived nine years with the actor Ricardo Darín , much younger than her.

He had flirtations with the singers Sergio Denis (1949-) and Cacho Castaña (1942-2019). In 1988 she remarried to the polo player Huberto Roviralta, from whom she divorced ten years later (1998) in the midst of a scandal, paying him a sum of more than 10 million dollars.

I’m sick of seeing the same people everywhere. I get tired of talking. I no longer want more massive events in which they suck me all over. I prefer to invite my friends to my house, build a good bar, play cards, have a wine, shit with laughter.

Crimes and scandals

In August 1991, Susana Giménez bought a Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC car that had been entered into the country on behalf of a certain Cayetano Ruggiero who was disabled for $ 90,000 . [2] It was a maneuver to be able to buy an imported car when it was not possible according to the commercial regulations of the time. The car was found by the police hidden under bales of alfalfa in the Susana Giménez ranch near the city of Pilar, 80 km northwest of downtown Buenos Aires.

“I did not commit any crime,” Susana Giménez insisted, but she had to pay $ 10,000 bail to get out of jail.

Five years later (in 1996, during the government of Carlos Saúl Ménem , whom Susana proselytized on numerous occasions), she managed to be dismissed due to prescription of the case.

In 1997 she was prosecuted for fraud through the television competition Her Call . In April 1997, Giménez launched the telephone contest on his program, with prizes of up to one million dollars. For this purpose, contracts were signed between Telefé (the television channel that broadcast Susana’s program), Hard Communication (organizer of the game, created by businessman Jorge Born, former montonero Rodolfo Galimberti [at that time, CIA agent] and Jorge Rama [Susana Giménez’s boyfriend]) and Telinfor (auditext company that provided the telephone lines to Su Llamado ).

The contest used, in 1997, a charity line of the Felices los Niños Foundation, directed by the Catholic priest and pedophile Julio Grassi, and it worked for five months without authorization from the Ministry of Social Action.

In September 1997, the organizers obtained the authorization of Acción Social, under the regulatory framework of Decree 7342/65. According to the decree, 50% of the proceeds from these television collections were to be used for charitable purposes. In addition, for six months the collection functioned without an agreement signed with Father Grassi. The agreement between Hard and the Julio Grassi foundation was only signed in October 1997. In that document Julio Grassi agreed to receive just 7% of the proceeds, without taking into account organization costs. [3] In the end, the game had a turnover of 18 million, 16 were collected and Father Grassi was liquidated $ 400,000 (that is, two percent of the collection). The prosecutor questioned that liquidation because Decree 7342 is of public order and cannot be replaced by an agreement between the parties.[4]

Julio Grassi, the priest who became famous on Susana Giménez’s television programs, was later denounced and eventually sentenced to 15 years in prison (since 2013) for rape of minors. In the framework of the investigation, the journalists met with Jorge Corcho Rodríguez, Susana Giménez’s ex-boyfriend, who also had knowledge about the sexual abuse Grassi committed with the children of his orphanage:

Grassi liked the kids he housed at his foundation, and he slept with them. We knew this with Susana. […] Don’t get into trouble because everyone knows that Grassi is a buffoon.

Corcho Rodríguez, boyfriend of Susana Giménez [5]

At the beginning of 2009, the magazine Caras y Caretas involved her in a business of buying and selling players, with the following title on its cover: “Hand in hand with glamor, narcos land in Uruguayan soccer”, linking it to drug trafficking and money laundering. Susana sued the magazine for $ 0.3 million, but a year later (in April 2010), Susana Giménez reached an agreement to drop the charges against the magazine in exchange for it giving her a space to promote her pseudo-solidarity actions.

For this reason Susana Giménez had to appear in the Uruguayan courts to declare in the case that she was brought forward by two checks that her ex-boyfriend, the Uruguayan Jorge Rama, would have falsified. The origin of the cause are two bottomless checks that would be signed by Susana Giménez. Although there are several versions of the figures, the most plausible indicate that one would be for $ 200,000 and the other for $ 70,000. Months later, Giménez was dismissed after verifying that the checks were indeed forged by her ex-boyfriend.

Susana Giménez repeatedly advocated the crime. He supported the death penalty and justice-based murder by his own hand:

He who kills must die!

Apology for the crime of “justice by own hand”:

It is the only way, what do you want? If the police don’t defend us …
