Sources reportedly told TMZ that the deal is for Aispuro to join the cast of Cartel Crew as soon as possible and being recording.
Michael Blanco starred in the first season of the show, which premiered in January.
The show's reality stars come from families that have drug-trafficking pasts. However, cast members are trying to be role models outside of the drug world, according to the show's description.
During a February episode, Michael Blanco mourned the loss of his mother, Griselda, who was assassinated on September 3, 2012, in Medellin, Colombia.
Griselda, whose net worth was $2billion when she was killed, was known as La Madrina, the Black Widow, the Cocaine Godmother and the Queen of Narco-Trafficking.
She was a Colombian drug lord of the Medellín Cartel and helped pioneer the Miami-based cocaine drug trade in the 80s.
Meanwhile, Mexican drug lord El Chapo, who has been married to Aispuro since 2007, is currently serving a life sentence at a Colorado prison known as 'the Alcatraz of the Rockies'.
El Chapo, who is the co-founder of the Sinaloa Cartel, was sentenced to life plus 30 years after being found guilty of a raft of crimes including conspiracy to commit murder.
Just last week, El Chapo's son, Ovidio Guzmán López, was detained outside his home in Culiacán by the Mexican government.
Officials released video of the moment López was placed on his knees by authorities and told to call his brother to stop a counterattack by armed cartel members on soldiers around the city.
Video of the failed arrest of López was revealed by Mexico's Defense Secretary Luis Cresencio Sandoval on Wednesday — an incident that has embarrassed the administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
In the footage, López is shown surrounded by soldiers with one telling him to call his brother, Iván Archivaldo Guzmán, the leader of the 'Los Chapitos' wing of the Sinaloa Cartel, and tell him to stop the gun battle he launched in response to his brother's house being surrounded.
'Tell them to stop everything,' a soldier says as the sound of high-powered artillery rattles away in the background.
'Stop this, stop this. I already turned myself in,' López can be heard telling his brother on the phone.
Archivaldo responded 'no' and shouted threats against the soldiers and their families. The attacks continued and eight minutes later the first wounded soldiers were reported.
According to President Obrador, the commander of the military unit responsible for leading the raid was offered $3million pesos, or $157,000 to let López walk free.
But when he declined their proposition, the cartel threatened to kill him and his family.
Towards the end of the video, López begs his brother: 'Please tell them to stop. Relax. Tell them to retreat. But just tell them. I don't want there to be any more chaos, please.'
Later that afternoon, police withdrew from the residence having released López in exchange for a ceasefire.
Thirteen people were killed in the bloodshed.
