Y con ese mismo paradigma me menejo en el mundo del entretenimiento.

A mis 71 años de vida y un monton de experiencia, me gusta salir a entrevistar a las estrellas del pasado, presente y futuro.

Además de darle a conocer al mundo sobre el talento de nuestras luminarias latinas y hollywoodenses, también me gusta destacar lo que pasa en sus vidas, su corazón y su sentir de quienes eligieron el camino del cine, televisión o la música.

Asi que de todo corazón te invito a que nos sigas en nuestra página y en nuestras redes sociales. Apuesto a que te divertirás!
