The death of María Teresa Campos a few weeks ago shocked the country and, above all, the world of communication and television. The presenter had been away from the media spotlight for some time at the request of her daughters after going through cognitive deterioration that prevented her from living a normal life.
Now, Carmen Borrego and Terelu Campos have decided that they have to recover their daily lives despite feeling sad about what happened. Although the first returned to television a little over a week ago, Alejandra Rubio's mother has not dared to take the step until now.
With the help of Jordi González, Terelu Campos wanted to give her first interview on a television set for the new program La Plaza de La 1. With this she has returned to the network with which she made her professional debut and with which her mother reaped great joys. "It was my mother who made me go back to where it all began. It's nice to go back to the roots," she began to relate.
But he did not take long to refer to the death of the communicator. "Maybe grief was one of the ingredients of her death," she confessed with a serious face. And that sadness is due, according to Terelu, to her being forced to stop working. "Her life stopped the day she stopped stepping on a television set. It devoured her from the inside and consumed her from the outside," she added.
"My mother's life stopped. That lucid mind... The disease consumed her. My mother, in the end, was a very small person, very consumed," he confessed. But for Terelu there is something that has really hurt her: that her mother could not go away doing what she loved most.
"She always said: 'I want the public to leave me'. And the public has never removed her, a company has removed her, whatever you want to call it. In fact, the public always asked her to come back," he wanted to leave. clear to the audience.
And if one thing has become clear, it is that María Teresa Campos did not want to stop working. According to Terelu, any topic of conversation they had with her mother revolved around her return to television. So much so that Carmen Borrego confessed on several occasions that she spent her free time devising new programs and sections.
But if the journalist's eldest daughter has done something wrong, it is seeing her mother deteriorate. "The last eleven months have been terrifying (...) When I had a crisis, she would call you the next day and tell you: 'Something happened to me yesterday, right?'. Faced with that question, it is very difficult to justify why she "wouldn't be scary," he said sadly.
