Ninel Conde, La Misfortunada

In María Sol Corral, Ninel Conde on February 29, 2008 at 12:06 pm

This is just not Ninel Conde’s year; heck, it ain’t her millenium.


First her new husband Juan, come to find out, was still married to his previous wife María Sol Corral, and now the Mexican newspaper Reforma is reporting that the Mex Feds are after her for tax fraud, dating from ’03.


So far, due to some technicality, she’s evaded some carce time. Let’s hope so for Ninel’s sake that it stays that way. Goodness knows there’s probably plenty of folks at those Mexican prisons ready for some fresh flesh.

At least she will  have yet another thing in common with her husband: ex-con status.



Penelope Cruz Meets the Parents

In Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz on February 29, 2008 at 11:00 am

You know a Spaniard is serious about his mujercita when he has her meet La Madre.


Oscar winner Javier Bardem did just that recently on the night of his Oscar win. I can see Penelope trading Javiercito stories over some crochetting.

Is the next carpet that Javier walks on…be the one that leads to an officiating priest? And will Lopita be right alongside him, with mama Pilar Bardem in tow?


Christina’s Rack

In Christina Aguilera on February 29, 2008 at 10:21 am

Did ChrissyAgui get bitten by a scorpion? Did her rack get stung by bees.


There’s got to be a good explanation for this. Here she is on her way to dinner the other night. It’s a sure bet, that her rack got there a good minute before she did.

Aracely Arambula, Baby Adviser

In Aracely Arámbula, Luis Miguel on February 29, 2008 at 10:00 am

Want to know todo about your bebe? Why not turn to Aracely Arambula? The baby mamma and wife of LuisMi’s show—entitled fittingly enough  “¡Viva la Familia!” will be coming to your local Univision affiliate station, with Aracely churning out motherly/parenting advice. Can’t figure out how Telemundo didn’t bid on it.


Wonder what advice Aracely could possibly have to give. Am pretty sure all the poop clearing is done by a nanna, so she wouldn’t be able to comment on that. Second-hand knowledge is not so bad.


La Mas Bella Es…?

In Christina Milian, Rosario Dawson on February 29, 2008 at 8:00 am

Okay, it’s down to ChrissyMil at the Billboard Oscar party…


And Rosario Dawson last week at Tao’s in Las Vegas.

So…Tres, dos, uno…who looked more stunning?

Alan Ledesma Nov 1977-Feb 2008

In Alan Ledesma on February 29, 2008 at 7:40 am

Alan Ledesma passed away at the age of 30, not 29, as is being reported elsewhere. He would have turned 31 this November, but, alas, got defeated in his battle with stomach cancer.  


The Mexican actor was known for his role in telenovelas like “Pablo y Andrea” and “Codigo Postal”. His illness got so terrible that he couldn’t continue working on his latest telenovela outing Las tontas no van al cielo. 

Hissiper’s condolences to his family and friends.

Rosario Dawson is Hood

In Rosario Dawson on February 28, 2008 at 11:00 am

Rosario Dawson? Si, ella es hood. I know, I know, I thought she was prim and proper too, but apparently not! Turns out that on the set of Alexander, she connected with her inner Oscar de la Hoya. Encouraged by Colin Farrell to make a fight scene look real, she–Why don’t we let the lady tell it:


“He [talkin’ about that Colin Farrell] was all, ‘C’mon, you can hit me.’ I said, ‘All right, but I’m from New York, you know. Be careful what you ask for.’ So I smacked him, and pow!”

That’s method acting for you.

Telemundo’s Pecados Ajenos

In Catherine Siachoque, Lorena Rojas, Lupita Ferrer, Mauricio Islas, Telenovelas on February 28, 2008 at 10:00 am

Is it me or is Telemundo’s telenovela a semi-remake of Salome without the belly dancing and the switcheroo birthin’?


The telenovela seems to be going on and on, but Telemundo viewers aren’t complaining. Maybe it has something to do with the cast: Mauricio Islas, Catherine Siachoque, Lorena Rojas, Lupita Ferrer.

Telemundo seems to have the casting game on lock. Why Univision is always ahead in ratings is a mystery to me. Some Nielsen payola, perhaps?

Zulay Henao Talks Future Tense

In Zulay Henao on February 28, 2008 at 9:00 am

Zulay Henao is one hot chica, and you will be feeling her making some noise in the future. Discussing her ideal starring role, she told Latina that it would be


“Something related to the military, because I have such strong ties in that whole world, I would love to work on a good military story with some unspoken heroes. Someone everyone wouldn’t think is a hero, but she is. You don’t have to be a superhero. I think there is a hero [aspect] about a lot of stories.”

What was that stuff that that dude said, man can if only she wills. Well, Latinas will ’cause they can! See you at a theatre near me, Zulay.

Eva Longoria Defends Gabrielle Solis

In Eva Longoria on February 28, 2008 at 8:30 am

Someone with a Bible could pin down Gabrielle Solis’s rupture of all the ten commandments over the last couple of seasons of “Desperate Housewives”, even the woman who plays her E.Lo.


“I wouldn’t like me very much if I did all those things to my girlfriends. I think Marc Cherry [the show’s writer] writes these evil, evil things but in a light, fun way with great physical comedy aspects to it. I don’t know why people like her but I’m really glad [they] do.”

Yeah? You wouldn’t have a career otherwise. We see how you’re always whining, and you have a big stash, a fine husband, and plenty of designers sucking up. Wonder where the whining meter would be, if that wasn’t the case.
