lupillo riveraFor the first time in more than a year, the Rivera family had a reunion. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the images on social media of Lupillo Rivera and some from the Rivera clan, together, in one room. Unfortunately, not all of them were there, but it's a good start (which has been in the works for some time) and what a better time than Thanksgiving. See who was at the reunion and what's happening with the rest of the family.

It's not surprising that Rosa Saavedra, the Rivera family matriarch, wasn't there. She refuses to be in the same room with her ex husband's new son, but I think she would have enjoyed it.

Lupillo has admitted he hasn't reached out to La Diva de la Banda's kids. It's about time he did though, espeially as the third anniversary of her death nears.

Let's hope a meeting with Chiquis is in the works. Lupillo Rivera has said that he believes Jenni Rivera was right when accused her daughter of having an affair with her then husband Esteban Loaiza.

In December 2014, during a concert to honor Jenni Rivera on the second anniversary of her death, Gustavo and Lupillo Rivera seemed to be on better terms.

The situation with Juan Rivera seems to be even worse. The distance between the two started when they went to get Jenni Rivera's remains in Monterrey, Mexico. Things haven't been right between them since then.

We can only hope that by the anniversary of Jenni Rivera's passing, or for Christmas, the Riveras can be all together like a family should.
