Isabel Preysler’s Unexpected Reaction to Tamara Falcó’s Plans in Her New Docuseries: ‘Don’t Scare Me’

“It’s me, Tamara Falco Preysler on my 40th birthday. If there’s one thing I can say, it’s that so far things haven’t stopped happening to me.” That’s how it starts Tamara Falcó: the Marquise the new Netflix documentary starring Isabel Preysler’s daughter in which she takes on Georgina Rodríguez’s witness and her series I am Georginain a new audiovisual production which will review the busy life of its protagonist.

The first chapter begins with the lavish party given by the Marquise de Griñón for her fortieth birthday in November last year. A celebration attended by well-known faces from the pages of the lying paper and where we can see the strong union he has with his family, they did not miss the party: “I was very lucky with my family.”says the protagonist proudly speaking of her family.


Tamara acknowledges that her life has been told “through the magazine Hi“, something that, although having marked her life, has not affected her at all: “I am the daughter of one of the most elegant women in Spain and Carlos Falcó, a renowned winemaker, Marquis de Griñón and frande d’Espagne”, she proudly boasts about her parents. “Yes, now I am Marquise”, she says amused by the title she inherited from her father, who was her “little right eye”.

She defines herself as an “influencer”, businesswoman and owner of her own clothing brand and collaborator of “one of the most successful television shows in this country, El hormiguero”. And he continues to talk about his faith, something that has defined his life in recent years: “Instead of wanting to go out at night for a drink, I wanted to stay at home praying the rosary, I came to consider being a nun.”

The starting point of the documentary is surprising to say the least: he wants to open his own restaurant. And it is that of his victory in Master Chef Celebrity, Tamara has found her true calling, cooking. After winning the competition, he continued his preparation at a prestigious cooking school, which is why he decided to dedicate himself to it and open a restaurant in El Rincón, the farm he inherited after the death of his father.

With the help of Iñigo Onieva, the great revelation of the documentary, very loose in front of the cameras, Tamara will create, throughout the six chapters that make up the documentary, a menu “in record time” with which to start the restaurant. “And if that wasn’t enough, I have to convince my mother that I can do it“jokes the Marquise.


To give shape to this idea, he will also have the collaboration of designer Juan Avellaneda, from whom he has become inseparable during his time on the aforementioned TVE culinary reality show. “I want to do it well and it’s very complicated because it’s still a huge house and it needs a brutal reform”. El Rincón, located in Aldea del Fresno (Madrid), is an impressive 19th century palace where he spent a lot of time with his father, which is why he is moved every time he visits it: “My father was the reason I went to the countryside and that was my moment of peace. It’s something I’m not going to share with him and it makes me sad.”

Isabel Preysler’s funniest face

The second chapter of the series begins with a funny and surreal conversation between Isabel Preysler and Mario Vargas Llosa in which they talk about the greatness of New York, a city that, according to her mother, “Tamara has not visited for a long time.” It is precisely on his return that this new chapter turns in which his protagonist sets sail for the city of skyscrapers. “I saw a movie to put me in New York, quite interesting,” says Tamara to Mario Vargas Llosa, who is happy with the trip. “Let’s go to the Carolina Herrera fashion show and after shopping with mom“, he adds about family projects. “Mario is still to read, he sometimes came with mum and me, but he doesn’t really like it. At first, I didn’t know who Jimmy Choo was.”

“My mother, there are things that she considers awful and everything is already strident, it does not favor you … she does not understand it”, she says of the differences with her mother in her tastes fashion as they stroll hand in hand through the streets of New York showing off their most accomplices.


During one of the mother-daughter meetings, Tamara confesses her idea of ​​opening a restaurant: “I know you don’t have much confidence in the restaurant, but it will eventually happen”, she warns her mother. “It’s just that I don’t understand,” jokes an unrecognizable Isabel Preysler, funnier and closer than usual. “That of the ephemeral restaurants I can’t finish seeing it,” he adds without understanding the concept of the restaurant offered by his daughter. Tamara’s idea is to “create a mobile kitchen, move it to different areas of the palace” and thus enjoy each of its spaces.

Particularly amusing is the visit they make to a kitchen furniture store in New York, where Isabel Preysler puts a face to each of Tamara’s ideas: “Mom, I’m forty, okay? (…) You pay no attention to me”, she says amused while her mother scolds her for touching things in the store: “Soy Blue CondomI have been dismantling kitchens for a year“, She adds.

During his visit to workshop by Carolina Herrera, Tamara arrives ready to look at wedding dresses for her future marriage to Iñigo Onieva, an idea her mother doesn’t seem to like very much: “Don’t scare me. Don’t be silly. You’re still at the turkey age,” she says Isabel listening to her daughter. “The one who’s going to be scared is Iñigo when he sees this. I’m like a psycho who looks at wedding dresses before… (…) When I tell Iñigo that I looked at wedding dresses, I hope he doesn’t misunderstand my mother’s reaction. It’s not because of him, it’s because of the concept. What my mother doesn’t want is to lose me, she thinks I’m going to go back to her place. It’s not that she doesn’t want to see me happy, but she wants me to be with her,” Tamara said.

On her return to Madrid, Tamara finds Onieva with whom she recounts the best moments of her trip and the commented moment of her mother with the wedding dresses. “I imagine myself married to him, you don’t waste time with someone you don’t see a future for,” she says as Iñigo dodges her and prefers not to talk about marriage.
