“So We Really Are Latinos, Right?”

Last night we were watching the Democratic National Convention en casita.  Cristina Saralegui was on TV delivering her speech – I kind of love her, by the way.  She’ll always be a legend in my eyes… never mind her less than graceful exodus from TV.  I was kind of wishing […]

New Photo a Day Challenge for Latinos: #JulyFotoOfTheDay

So I think I learned some lessons with the first Foto Of The Day Challenge, this month.  For one thing, my daily photo challenge ideas could have been a little bit better.  The other main thing, was that I should have given you all more time to decide whether you […]

Latinos In Entertainment, Have We Reached a New Era?

First it was Jennifer Lopez on American Idol, then Christina Aguilera on The Voice.  Now, just as both Univision and FOX are airing the same first-of-its-kind bilingual show, Q’Viva The Chosen, ABC is incorporating Cuban heartthrob William Levy into their hit show Dancing With The Stars, and Telemundo is producing […]
