The rescue of the Chilean miners was a success. It has left one miner famous and known as the cheating miner. Trapped miner Yonni Barrios has three women who are taking a stand for what they want. Yonni Barrios has a wife and two mistresses. Not only is he famous for being trapped with 33 other miners but for having a wife and two women on the side.
Yonni Barrios’s wife Marta Salinas was waiting with other families of the trapped miners when she learned her husband had a mistress there waiting too. Yonni Barrios’s wife decided to leave so she would not be humiliated. Many people do not blame her for leaving. Someone would have to place himself or herself in that situation to understand her position and feelings at the time she learned of the mistress.
Yonni Barrios asked his wife and mistress Susana Valenzuela to both be there when his rescue capsule brought him to the top. His wife refused because she did not want to share him with his mistress. Who can blame her, that would be awkward and he should have known better than to ask his mistress to be at the top when he arrived. In all fairness, his wife should have been the one waiting for him.
Yonni Barrios’s wife did not show up at all the day her husband was rescued but did state, “Yonni knows where I am, he can come here and talk to me, if not we will let out lawyers talk.” This sounds like a woman who is standing her ground and with great reason.
The mistress Susana Valenzuela who was at the site when Yonni Barrios came to the surface is strong willed too. It appears she does not care if he has a wife or not because she is standing by him no matter what. She proved this when he arrived at the hospital because she stayed by his side and then mistress number 2 shows up. Whom Susana Valenzuela had barred from the hospital. She stated that the cheating miner was “my Yonni.”
The second mistress people do not really know much about only that she is 25 years old and much younger than the cheating miner who is in his 50’s. Not that age matters so who’s counting. Mistress number 2 showed she had guts by showing up at the hospital with the wife and mistress cheating miner saga all over the media. It goes to show you some people have either no shame or guts.
There must be something women like about this cheating coal miner because he appears to have plenty of women fighting for his attention.
