On the Mexican television station Canal, Sugey was their news show’s weather girl. In 2008, she became a host on “D poca,” produced by Martha Zabalete, and presented the weather in “Matutino Express.” In 2009, she left her job at “D poca” and became the host for “Arriesga TV.” She later hosted “TV de Noche,” but suffered from depression after the show was cancelled.
On 7 September 2016, she experienced a wardrobe malfunction while presenting the weather, live on the news. The video went viral and brought a lot of attention to Sugey.
She did not notice the fault at the time; and was only told about it after shooting ended for the day.
She has graced the cover of “Playboy” magazine in Mexico.
Her and Enrique Durán – her ex-husband – owned food trucks together, through which Sugey endorsed several brands including Donna Karan fragrances, and DKNY Stories, as of September 2018.
In 2011 she married businessman Enrique Durán during a memorable and apparently beautiful ceremony.
Unfortunately, in 2015 she was threatened and robbed, and subsequently had to go onto anti-depressants to help keep her relaxed. She has said that her husband was her support during that time. Later that year, Sugey and her husband renewed their vows, but after five years of marriage, they were going to divorce in 2016 due to Sugey wanting to start a family with Enrique, which he didn’t want. They tried attending couples’ therapy but found it unhelpful.
Nonetheless, at the end of 2016, they decided to give their marriage another chance – she has outwardly spoken about the possibility of her becoming a single mother. Enrique was the founder and director of Motors Heaven Motorcycles, but he became bankrupt after the business fell apart.
After eight years of marriage, they separated in 2019. Sugey said that they have different life projects and future plans; they found that despite trying to make their marriage work, their lives were going in completely different directions.
In 2019, she also got candid about her emotional battles. After their split, she attempted suicide by attempting to jump off a terrace – thankfully, one of the cleaners pulled her to safety.
