Bobby Larios Niurka MarcosAccording to People en EspaƱol, Niurka Marcos and Bobby Larios have signed divorce papers bringing this horrific coupling closer to its end. Niurka, not one to shy away from speaking, had this to say to La Oreja:

“I am very happy, very relaxed. I think the monstrosity that this man made me live through is passing, and I can’t wait until August 14th to sign final papers and get this weight off my back.”

She also mentioned something to the effect that she wishes she could have signed the papers while holding Bobby’s hand, just like they got married. Is this lady running out of things to say? Meanwhile, Bobby was seen the other night locking lips with an 18 year-old girl so this answers why Bobby wasn’t there to hold Niurka’s hands.

Gael Garcia Bernal is a Liar! A Liar I Tell Ya’!

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.25.2006 - Gael Garcia Bernal

Gael Garcia BernalLadies, sorry to disappoint you, but your dreamboat Latino Gael Garcia Bernal is a liar. At least he used to be. Gael recently confessed that he would get so nervous around girls that he would uncontrollably lie to impress them. He continued pulling the old “lie trick” to get the girls, until one day when he got caught. He tells Hot Dog Magazine:

“With this one girl I decided I was not going to lie. Then we heard a song and she said, ‘This is my favourite band.’ “I just blurted out that I’m actually good friends with the bass guitarist. It turned out that the guy was her ex-boyfriend and it turned into a huge lie.”Ā

I finally have proven that this man is not perfect. Actually, I guess he is since now he doesn’t lie anymore. Dammit. Or maybe, he is lying about not lying about lying. Tricky tricky Gael, but The Gossiper is too smart to fall for that.

The Return of Menudo…Yes, Menudo.

MenudoThat’s right. Your eyes are not deceiving you. Menudo is set to make a comeback, but this time auditions to be part of the group will be open to the public. If you are a male that speaks English or Spanish and are between the ages of 15-19 then you have a shot of becoming a part of this iconic boy band.

Menudo Entertainment, in conjunction with Gibson Guitar, is kicking off “Mvasion,” an international talent search to recreate the singing group with a contemporary hip urban/Latin rhythmic sound. Live auditions will be held in markets throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico with the first one taking place in New York City on Oct. 14.

What in the name of RBD is going on here? I thought we all decided to put this behind us. If you decide to audition I wish you all the best on getting accepted for this summer internship, because that is how long it’ll last before they replace you with someone younger. Try hiding the facial hair, talking in a high voice, and avoiding sleeping with the groupies and you may last five months.

EmmysIt was just announced, that the second annual Latin Emmys will take place in New York City on October 19th. The show will honor the best of Spanish-language television, of which according to the National Television Academy of Arts and Science, draws in over 40 million viewers.

This year’s recipients include Fernando Arau, morning show host of Univision’s “Despierta America”; Telemundo’s sports anchor Jessi Losada; Maria Elena Salinas, co-anchor of the Spanish language newscast “Noticiero Univision,” and Cristina Saralegui, host of Univision’s talk show, “Cristina.”

This is one of the few nights where the Telemundo-ites and the Univision-ers get together under one roof and actually acknowledge each other. Any other night, they pretend that the other isn’t in the room and laugh really loud at nothing to make the other really furious and want to go home and write in their slam book.

Juanes and Salma Hayek Deny Riches

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.24.2006 - Chisme, Juanes

Juanes and SalmaJuanes’s manager, Fernan Martinez, spoke out after Fortune magazine declared Juanes one of the richest Latinos in celeb-world claiming that he has an estimated $55 million. Fernan denies that Jaunes has this much money and made very clear that Juanes does not even come close to that figure.

“I saw that story on the Internet and thought it was a joke. Juanes? From what? If only he had a tenth of that, he’d be happy.”

Now Salma Hayek is coming out with her denial, saying that she laughed after someone sent her the article claiming that she has a fortune worth $100 million.

“It’s a bit like a joke. Obviously I have never earned $100 million and I wouldn’t even want to. With things as they are in Mexico, it bothers me that they put me in a group of millionaires with $100 million I don’t have when there are so many people dying of hunger.”

Sure, Salma, sure. Celebrities often deny their wealth and try to hide it as much as they can for security reasons. They don’t want problems from potential kidnappers and especially don’t want Prima Lucia asking to borrow money so she can fix her El Camino.
