Imanol’s Father Shut Out From Competing

by Latin Gossip Staff on 05.15.2006 - Chisme

Imanol On Reyes de la Pista, Imanol disclosed that his asthma has turned into hypoglycemia and could become chronic if not treated properly. This prevented him from participating in last night’s live show. He asked his fellow companions as well as the judges if his father could help replace him instead. They said no.

NO??!! NO??!! How heartless can you be? This kid is hardly breathing, asking you to let his father replace him in a dance competition so he can recuperate and not die and you say NO??!! Did you forget what the purpose of the show was? It was to help pregnant Mexicans who can’t afford ANYTHING and, because of your insecurities, you say no?

Because the decision was made through secret ballots, nobody knows for sure who said no. Someone will burn in Hell…you know who you are.

Goal! Doesn’t Meet its Goal

by Latin Gossip Staff on 05.15.2006 - Chisme, Kuno Becker

Kuno Becker in Goal! Hardly anyone went to see this film this weekend. Goal! The Dream Begins, starring Kuno Becker, only made $2 million opening weekend. So now you know why I put ‘Goal! Doesn’t Meet its Goal.’ Get it? I’m so clever.
In continuing with cliché phrases, Just My Luck, starring Lindsay Lohan, ran out of luck as it only made $5.5 million opening weekend. These are the worst opening weekend numbers in Lindsay’s career. I guess crashing your car into others doesn’t go so well with the public. Better Luck next time! Can’t…stop…the…clichés…

Diva from Peru

Laura Laura Bozzo, known for having the Spanish version of Jerry Springer, has left Telemundo and is getting offers from Televisa, which means that she would air on Univision in the US.

The drama here is that she will now be joining forces with Telemundo’s biggest competitor, AND she would have to share the spotlight with Cristina. Laura says “Univision should have two divas, and they are Cristina and me.” Maybe now Cristina will put down the turkey leg and actually deliver a quality show, something she hasn’t done since 1998.

It Should Be Titled… Goooooaaaaaaal!

Kuno Becker in Goal! Goal! The Dream Begins is opening today in theatres. The only reason I mention this is because it stars Kuno Becker, the talented Mexican actor who is making his leap into Hollywood from novelas.

Kuno, good luck being one of the few Latinos in Hollywood. Here are a few tips to succeed in the industry:

  1. Refuse roles that are stereotypical of Latin culture, unless it is a comedy because we like to laugh at ourselves here and there.
  2. Don’t get a big head, remember where you came from. Need a reminder? Cheesy novelas.
  3. Hook up with a Hollywood hottie (videotape it and send it to me).

Latin Lover was a Latin Stripper

Latin Lover Latin Lover, winner of Bailando por un Sueño, has revealed secrets of his past jobs before he achieved success as a boxer. He says that he sold hamburgers on the streets and also stripped in clubs to bring home the bacon.

Apparently, this was a family affair where his wife would not only cook the burgers, but also drive him to the clubs where girls would wave pesos as he waved his…well, let’s just say that it wasn’t a burger. This is Latin Lover’s way of keeping our attention. 15 minutes are almost up buddy…
