Italy World Cup Copa Mundial Italy won the World Cup. The game went on to penalty shots and Italy won 5-3. Even though all Latin American teams were eliminated several rounds ago, World Cup news still matters to us. Congratulations Italy, we’ll see you in four years! Vedali durante quattro anni!

Rafael Nadal Federer Wimbledon Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal lost against Swiss player Roger Federer at the Wimbledon Finals. Try and decipher what Rafael says in this sound byte about the match. At least he tries to speak English unlike that sap Pablo Montero.

Ricky Martin Sells His Home in LA

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.07.2006 - Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin It didn’t have a “For Sale” sign up but Ricky Martin managed to sell his house anyway because someone offered him an amount he couldn’t pass up. The 11,000 square foot house with six bedrooms and twelve bathrooms sold for $18 million. Not a bad deal at all, considering that Ricky paid around $12 million for it less than a year ago.

Ricky spends about $10,000 a week on massages and facials, so it is a good thing that some cash flow came his way. I think this transaction makes it official that Ricky now makes more money in real estate than on selling albums.

Richard Perez-Feria is Fired From People En Español

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.06.2006 - Chisme

Richard Perez-Feria Richard Perez-Feria is leaving People En Español . Of course they can try and say that his contract is up or some other ‘safe’ lie but the inside scoop is that Richard was fired for his lies, misconduct, and loss of trust from the celebrities that the magazine promotes.

Richard walks around claiming that he slept with Ricky Martin, Pablo Montero, and other hot celebrities, male and female alike. He is apparently not too hush-hush about the secrets of celebrities and spills the beans on who does which drugs, something he participates in, and which celebrity is gay or not. The celebs complained and Richard got the boot.

Jennifer Lopez didn’t show up to the party for “50 Mas Bellos”, a party largely thrown in her honor, because she doesn’t care for Richard. I have to give him credit because he helped make the magazine what it is today, but I think everyone around him knew that he was on self-destruct mode.

Penelope Not Dating The Pianist

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.06.2006 - Amor, Chisme, Penelope Cruz

Elsa Pataky The rumor that Penelope Cruz was dating Adrien Brody can be put to rest. Apparently, they only went to dinner. Yawn. But he was spotted just a few days later with a new fling perhaps? Elsa Pataky seems to have captured the long-nosed actor’s attention. Boing!

I don’t get it. I live in a world where Petra Nemcova dates James Blunt, Heather Locklear dates David Spade, and now this?? What do I have to do to score a hot chick? Should I gain some weight, smash my face up against the sidewalk, and not take showers? Because if that is what it takes then open me up a bag of Doritos and ladies line up!

Paulina Endorses Proactiv

by Latin Gossip Staff on 07.05.2006 - Paulina Rubio

Paulina Rubio Following in the footsteps of Jessica Simpson and Kelly Clarkson, Paulina Rubio has signed on to be a spokesperson for Proactiv Solution. She claims that her face has cleared up since she started using the treatment.

Of course this is yet another way for Ms. Rubio to cash in on her celebrity, but the ‘before’ picture that is broadcast on the commercial is actually hideous. Not so much the pimples, but the wrinkles and the bags under her eyes are atrocious. That cannot be fixed by Proactiv, only Photoshop can help you there Pau.
