I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.I know I'm Latina when...
I'm reminiscing about my abuelas chancletazos...

For all of you who may have been thinking The Governor had grown a human side and succumbed to his better nature...PSYCH! The REAL Governor was back this week and he wasn't letting anyone or anything stand in his way.
His truly evil self came out full force and he murdered not one, but two members of his own group, including the very man that was kind enough to take him in even though he knew all about the Governor's genocidal past. I have to admit, I was pretty upset to see Martinez go, and his death was drawn out and excruciating.
Last night at the 2013 Latin Grammys, there were a LOT of unexpected events and I was in the front row catching all the action so that I can bring you all the chisme!

Read on to find out which gorgeous celeb changed her dress just moments before the show and which celebs braved the super rare rain in Las Vegas to make their fans happy...Continue Reading >
Tonight's entire episode centered around The Governor and what happened to him after the massacre of his old town. It was a rough road for him to travel, which seemed appropriate given that he had just carried out mass murder against the very people he had pledged to protect.
Immediately after The Governor went all gun happy with his peoples, he leaves the scene of the crime with Martinez, his trusty henchman. But even Martinez has his limits and by the next morning, the Gov's old friend was long gone.
No one knew what happened when the entire McStay family dissappeared without a trace over four years ago. Their family embarked on a frantic search, local authorities got involved, yet after an extensive investigation, there was no evidence strong enough to bring any closure to the family and friends of the McStay's.
Some speculated that the family jumped the border to Mexico in an attempt to get out from under some debt that they owed. Others said that perhaps the family had decided to live under the radar, but Joseph McStay's father Patrick always had a feeling that something wasn't right, and those suspicions were confirmed last Friday.
Oh my goodness, you HAVE to see this gorgeous video of two little twins holding on to each other as they get what seems to be one of the first baths of their very young lives.
Handled oh-so-gently by a loving nurse (who actually filmed the video to demonstrate a new bathing technique for newborns) the little brother/sister team cling to each other. It's not really even clear if they quite understand that they have been born and are longer in momma's belly, especially when the nurse submerges them up to their little faces and they're sort of floating, suspended in a spa bath that looks pretty darn relaxing, I have to say.Continue Reading >
