The death of the legendary television presenter María Teresa Campos on September 5 at the Jiménez Diaz Foundation Hospital caused a great stir in our country. Rocío Carrasco's friend, 82 years old, had been hospitalized for several days due to acute respiratory failure, but she had been fighting for months against noticeable cognitive deterioration. ''Unfortunately, at the moment, she is no longer what she was (...) She cannot decide for herself,'' Terelu Campos explained last May in a magazine.
Thousands of fans from all over the national and international territory, colleagues, friends and relatives of the veteran communicator published photos with the matriarch of the Campos family on social networks and dedicated a few words to her, as well as went to the funeral home to say goodbye to her.
The great media coverage of her death and the love that the family has received these weeks show that the deceased was very loved in our country. It should be noted that the journalist from Malaga was a pioneer in national television and she paved the way for many other women who were dedicated to communication in Spain. Nicknamed the 'queens of the mornings', Carmen Borrego's mother made the magazine show one of the most profitable formats on the small screen, as well as leading successful programs: What a Happy Time, Every Day, What's Interesting, etc.
This morning, Lecturas magazine published an article by Terelu directly responding to criticism of the way in which her mother was fired, something completely ''unfair'' given the circumstances. In addition, the media has published an interview in which journalist Pilar Eyre gave her opinion on the veteran presenter's vision of love and dedication.
The gossip magazine interviewed the journalist specialized in Casa Real on the occasion of the launch of her new literary work, the novel De amor y de guerra. When the interviewers asked Eyre if she was okay, she confessed that it was like María Teresa Campos, who was not in love with her work (as many believed), but with her love. ''When she fell in love and it was reciprocated is when she was really happy,'' she expressed.
The interviewee openly confessed that she saw Campos completely in love with Edmundo Arrocet and that she believes that the end of that love was what led her directly to old age: ''Until then she was beautiful, sexy, she got ready... And then ...I think that sank her.''
