Her fans say 2014 is the year of Chiquis Marín Rivera and I'm starting to think they're right. Jenni Rivera's oldest daughter debuted today the first episode of her web series, her album is dropping in May and she's now confirming she's super in love and is showing off an engagement ring and everything. La Diva de la Banda is probably SO happy for her daughter!

During a press conference to announce her web series Chiquis Confidential, she explained that the first season will show 48 mini episodes, each between three and five minutes long, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. "It's a little bit of Chiquis 'N Control meets I Love Jenni," she said, referring to the two Mun2 reality shows Chiquis and her family starred in. We'll still be able to see the Rivera family, but in the context of Chiquis' life. Jenni Rivera's eldest is one of the executive producers.

"It's something that I had to do to heal some of the wounds I have. Last year was not easy and I wanted to share those moments," she explained, referring of course to her mother's shocking death in December 2012, the rumors that she had betrayed her with her own stepdad, Esteban Loaiza, and the harsh criticism she's received for maintaining her mom's businesses and trying to launch her own career as a singer.

She mentioned that what had hit her the hardest were the terrible things that have been said about her:

That I'm hanging on to my mom's fame and to what happened. That hurts me deeply, because if I could change everything that happened and have my mother with me again, I'd do it without thinking about it twice. That's what hurts most because I think, it's not fair. I was working, I worked hard my whole life with my mom and I had started to forge my career before. I wanted to sing. It's not fair that people are saying that.

In an interview with Estrella TV, Chiquis though, dropped the biggest bomb: "Yes, I have an engagement ring. I call it my 'victory ring.' But I gave it to myself."

"Right now, there are no wedding plans, but I'm very engaged with the feelings that I have in my heart. Obviously, yes there is someone special in my life and I love them very much," she confessed. "But there's not wedding right now, I'm very focused on my career and the kids. I feel like they really need me, I don't think I'm ready to leave my mother's house yet."

Without a doubt, Chiquis has become the woman her mom taught her to be. Like they say in Spanish: tal palo tal astilla. Her series premieres today at 3 p.m., Pacific time, on her page ChiquisOnline.com.

Here's the video of the interview with Estrella TV and don't miss the one right below, which is the promotional clip for her show!

I feel as though whatever she does people will always criticize her so it's nice to see her really do her.I've personally never believed that rumor of her and esteban and I feel bad that while dealing with her mother's death she had to deal with ignorant people hating on her. I have an immense respect for her because no matter what happened with her mom, I'm sure she is making her proud because she is taking good care of her siblings and no one hates on that because they know that's true
