Don't expect Rodner Figueroa to stand on the unemployment line. The Venezuelan journalist is back to work after being fired from Univision for his distasteful comment against Michelle Obama back in March. I know Figueroa has many haters, but I love how he has been able to get up and dust himself off after such a crazy controversy. Another admirable part is that Figueroa is working on a passion project that's near and dear to his heart and does good for others too. What exactly is this fashionista up to?Continue Reading >
Apparently, The View just caught wind of Univision firing Rodner Figueroa over his controversial comments last week. Were they sitting under a rock or something?! Bueno, at least Rosie Perez's reaction made up for the daytime show's delayed response. The Boricua co-host went in on the Venezuelan journalist and his sharp comments about Michelle Obama looking like a cast member from Planet Of The Apes. As the only Latina on the table, Perez did an amazing job at breaking down racism in Latino culture and why his comments were unacceptable.Continue Reading >

My heart wanted to burst with pride when Alejandro González Iñárritu won for Best Director and his Birdman snagged Best Film during last night's Oscars. The 51-year-old filmmaker is the second Latino to win Best Director with the first win being taken by his friend and fellow Mexican Alfonso Cuarón.

We have been following Victor Rasuk and his acting career for some time now, but the Dominican actor has recently received extra love and attention for his role as Jose Rodriguez in Fifty Shades Of Grey. Rasuk may just have several lines in the movie, but he plays the character perfectly. All eyes are going to be on him in this film. Besides, he is the other man in Anatasia's life. While watching the film, I was secretly rooting for Victor to win her heart. That Christian Grey always gets his way, doesn't he?
Bueno, let's flip the script and give Victor the attention he deserves.
For the first time in 10 years, a Spanish language song will be performed at the Grammy awards. Although Colombian rock star, multiple Grammy winner and current nominee, Juanes has performed at the awards show once before, it was an English-Spanish version of another artist's song. This time, Juanes will perform his own song, which was co-written by fellow Latinos Fonseca, Descemer Bueno and Juan Luis Guerra. There hasn't been such a collaboration by Latino artists performed at the esteemed event since Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony sang "Escapemonos" back in 2005.

Tanto así, que algunos medios la catalogan como la "Paris Hilton latina". ¡Que pase la hija!
I can't believe it has been a year since Monica Spear was violently murdered in her home country of Venezuela. The most tragic part of the story was that her daughter, Maya, witnessed her parents being killed and managed to survive the fatal shooting. In the midst of all of that horror, Monica deserves to be remembered for her talent and beautiful spirit. For the year anniversary of her tragic death, Jencarlos Canela wrote and sang a heartfelt dedication to Monica titled, "Amiga." The song brought tears to my eyes.
