Justina Machado shot to fame as Vanessa Diaz in HBO’s Six Feet Under but in recent years, younger fans have associated her with Queen of the South. Machado’s character Brenda Parra was one of the few people who tried to look out for Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga) from the very beginning. Sadly, her love story with husband Chino Parra (Stephen Monroe) ended in tragedy.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Queen of the South.
When Teresa started dating drug dealer Guero Davilas (Jon Ecker), she quickly became associated with Brenda who was the wife of his cousin Chino.
As their partner and husband became wealthier through the drug trade, the more Teresa and Brenda enjoyed the rewards, regularly having leisurely lunches, shopping sprees and lavish parties.
But this fairytale lifestyle crumbled when drug cartel leader Don Epifanio (Joaquim del Almeida) discovered Guero and Chino had been stealing from him.

In terms of his love life, very little is known about Gironi and Machado as a couple.
From the looks of Instagram, they have been involved with one another since at least 2014.

Gironi is also close to her brothers Kenn and Julian Roman as they have been seen socialising countless times.
The couple even invited Kenn to join their Valentine’s Day celebrates this year so just shows how close the couple are to to their families.
Queen of the South is available to watch on USA Network and Netflix.
