No Chilindrina For You!

by Latin Gossip Staff on 10.02.2006 - Televisión

chilindrina.gifThe animated version of the children’s staple television show El Chavo, will not include one of its key characters, La Chilindrina. The actress who played that role, Maria Antonieta de la Nieves, has owned the rights to the character for the past ten years and she claims that producers for the cartoon were not cooperative therefore they did not come to an agreement for use of La Chili.

The actress took this opportunity with the press to share that she is releasing her magazine, Chilindrineando, very soon. Dare we say Oprah should watch her back?

Shakira To Help Ex-Gang Members

by Latin Gossip Staff on 09.30.2006 - Shakira

Shakira50cent.jpgUNICEF has invited Shakira to participate in several activities in El Salvador, taking full advantage that she will be in town anyways for a scheduled concert appearance on November 5th.

The activities will be based around talking to and inspiring ex-gang members, something that she also plans to do in Guatemala and Nicaragua. Do you think 50 Cent had any tips for her? Someone should warn her though – Even though Fitty’s past may lie in gang work, he is more relevant nowadays with country clubs, golf, and manicures.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony in Puerto Rico

by Latin Gossip Staff on 09.30.2006 - Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Musica

Jennifer Lopez7.jpgAfter a press conference in Puerto Rico, in which she and husband Marc Anthony plugged their current and future projects, Jennifer Lopez talked to El Nuevo Dia about criticism, creativity, and creating a Spanish album. Here is what she said:

“Criticism can affect you if you allow it. When you are in this industry for so long, you learn to fight. You take the good, the bad and everything in between and at the end of the day know that you still continue to be yourself, a human being that likes to sing, dance, act, and be creative. That is how I live, the exterior of it at first affects you, but then you don’t pay too much attention to it. The truth is that I feel more satisfied than ever with my work and that is what’s important. Then you wait and hope that the public likes it; if it doesn’t turn out that way, we keep on learning and growing.?

“Be it fashion, a perfume, or as a producer, I always have a creative point of view. I say how I think things should look or feel.?

“The first demo that I sent to a record label was in Spanish, because I thought my career as a singer would be in Spanish. But when I got to meet the director of Sony he found out that I spoke English and then changed the plans. Of course, I wasn’t going to say no, because what I wanted to do was sing…whatever it is!?

Could she be talking about Latin Gossip? Again, it’s abuelita criticism – share what you really feel to help those you love. Latin Gossip loves, therefore Latin Gossip criticizes.

Salma Hayek’s Cameo on Ugly Betty

by Latin Gossip Staff on 09.30.2006 - Salma Hayek, Televisión

Salma Hayek2.jpg You heard it months ago on Latin Gossip, and Thursday night we were finally able to see Salma Hayek‘s role on Ugly Betty. Salma plays a stereotypical actress in a stereotypical novela that is stereotypically playing, constantly, at Betty’s home. The overacting and cheesiness is, sadly, not far off from the real thing. In fact, many can argue that the melodramatic novela scenes are better than most of the garbage novelas that are on Spanish television.

Check out the video of her cameos and let’s hope that Salma’s appearance on the soap-within-a show continue throughout the season. They are a riot!

Holy Blog – Carlos Calderon Too?

by Latin Gossip Staff on 09.30.2006 - Chisme, Televisión

Carlos Calderon.jpgUnivision host Carlos Calderon has his own blog. The good news – Carlos is one of the wittiest, most creative, and quick-on-his-feet personalities that Univision has had in many years. The bad news – the blog is filed under univision.com, which means he probably has to have at least seventeen suits’ approval before posting content, so don’t expect him to get too loose online. Unless they read this of course, and it inspires them to be more forgiving with his words, which is what we should all hope for.

Welcome to the chaotic world of blogging Carlos. Make sure to buckle your seatbelt.
