To your left you have a recent picture of Gabriela Spanic shoving a sugary confection down her throat. She's somewhere in a Televisa studio mid-break from filming a novela. One could say she looks to be worry-free, right? Like... days gone by!

But, not too long ago, Gabriela Spanic made a big 'ol escandalo over her ex-assistant's supposed, alleged, cold-hearted assassination plot. Well, the dust has settled and it turns out the real killer was and has always been Gabriela Spanic's diet, not Maria Celeste Fernandez, who, for some really fucked up reason, is still in jail.

How does Gaby sleep at night knowing she consciously jailed an innocent person? We don't really know. What we do know is that this bitch is merciless and hard-to-the-motherfucking-core.

Thankfully Maria may leave jail soon, since nothing has been proven against her and, well, people are no longer paying attention to this zafarancho.

Now, unless Gabriela Spanic drops dead in the next few days, this is one messed-up story were the villain, to use vernacular wordplay, se sale con la suya!

Good and Bad News for Telemundo Ratings

La Reina del Sur, with the fantastic Kate Del Castillo, was the highest-rated program in Telemundo’s 19-year history, reeling in 4.2 million viewers overall. Good news.

La Casa De Al Lado, which replaced La Reina and boasts a stellar cast including Catherine Siachoque, averaged more than 2 million total viewers making it one of the highest premieres in the network’s history. Good news.

On the contrary, the Jencarlos Canela novela, Mi Corazon Insiste, kicked off with dismal ratings and the numbers continue to drop.

That novela premiered with a 3.9 ratings score…compare that with competitor Univision’s Teresa numbers at 18.9. Ouch! Bad news.

The network certainly was on the upswing in the second quarter of 2011 and hopefully they can keep it up now that La Reina Del Sur is over.

Are you watching Telemundo’s newest novelas??

Alicia Machado the 4th woman from Venezuela to capture the Miss Universe crown

Yoseph Alicia Machado Fajardo (born December 6, 1976 in Maracay) is an actress, singer and the fourth woman from Venezuela to capture the Miss Universe crown.

Alicia Machado was born in Venezuela on December 6, 1976. Her full Names is Yoseph Alicia Machado Fajardo. Her father, Arturo Machado, is originally from Spain. He is the owner of a toy store. Her mothers’ name is Martha Fajardo, she is from Cuba and owns a "Subway" franchise restaurant. Her parents are divorced. Alicia describes them as getting along well. They have respect for each other. She has 2 brothers and is the middle child.

At a very young age Alicia discovered her passion for dancing. She started taking dancing lessons at the age of 4. She studied dance for 8 years. When she was 10 she discovered her love for music and joined the school choir. She graduated from High School at the age of 15 and went on to college. She studied Business Administration, then switched to Law. Within 15 months into her studies she decided to quit School in order to pursue her dreams of being in the entertainment industry. She signed up with an agency and did commercials and modeling.

In 1995 she participated in and won the Miss Venezuela pageant. At the age of 18, she went on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. Alicia was very surprised when she won the Miss Universe title which led her to a very extradordinary year as Miss Universe 1996. The following year after returning her Miss Universe crown she continued the pursue of her dreams to make it into show business. Initially Alicia wanted to record an album but without the knowledge of how to go about it, it became very difficult. She received several tempting acting roles in soap operas which were very hard to refuse.

Alicia accepted a leading role in a Telenovela called Samantha (1998). She quickly polished her acting skills and took some lessons with several different acting coaches in Venezuela, Mexico and the United States. All her hard work was acknowledged when she won the Midia Award in Spain and the Ace award in New York City, as the new Actress of the year. She went on to star in two other Telenovelas. "Infierno en el Paraiso" (1999) filmed in Mexico and "Mambo Y Canela" (2002) filmed in Venezuela.

Although she loved acting her passion to sing grew even more. One of her close friends Ricardo Montanez assisted her in introducing her to the music industry. He introduced her to Jose Miguel who helped her not only with her vocals but also with writing songs. They worked on first album for 3 years. In 1999 her musical career became a reality when she released the album and in 1999 her dream came true when her debut album was released, “Alicia En El Pais De Las Maravillas”. Alicia Machado has continued her great success by starting in other TeleNovelas and movies. She has currently released her second album in November 2007.

She currently lives in Mexico City. On June 25, 2008, Alicia gave birth to her daughter, Dinorah Valentina. She issued a statement that the father of Dinorah was Mexican businessman Rafael Hernandez Linares after Mexican news sources, quoting the Attorney General, reported that the father was Gerardo Álvarez Vázquez, a drug lord.

Machado won the 1996 Miss Venezuela pageant entering Yaracuy and then the Miss Universe 1996 crown in Las Vegas. The runner-up, Jacqueline Aguilera, also won the Miss World 1995 crown, marking the second time that two Venezuelans from the same pageant won two world titles. Machado's reign came as Donald Trump took ownership of the Miss Universe pageant.

During her reign as Miss Universe, Machado made headlines when it was reported that she gained too much weight and the Miss Universe Organization was considering replacing her with her runner-up, Taryn Mansell of Aruba. In the end, Machado managed to shed some of the weight and retained her title. Donald Trump, however, was less magnanimous. While calling in live on the Howard Stern radio show to promote the 1997 Miss Universe pageant, he called her an "eating machine," which earned her more international fame.

In 1998, Alicia made her debut on the popular Venezuelan soap opera Samantha in the titular role. Following the success of Samantha she was called to start in Infierno en el Paraiso, another successful soap opera that made her a well known actress. In 2001, she had a small role on the international successful soap opera Secreto de Amor. During 2004–2005, she pursued a career as a TV commercial model with particular success in promoting a dieting product. In 2005, Machado appeared on a Spanish reality show called La Granja de los famosos ("The Farm") and caused scandal when she was filmed having sex with another show participant. After the film and photos became public, her then-fiance, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim' right fielder Bobby Abreu, broke off their engagement.

On February 19, 2006, Machado debuted on a Mexican reality show named Cantando Por Un Sueño ("Singing For A Dream"), a program in the line of the previous Bailando Por Un Sueño ("Dancing For A Dream"), in which the winner has the chance for a dream to come true. The show is very similar to Dancing with the Stars (U.S.) and ¡Más que baile! (formerly titled ¡Mira Quién Baila!) ("Look Who's Dancing!") (Spain).

Machado appeared in (and on the cover of) the February 2006 issue of Playboy magazine's Mexican edition, thus becoming the only Miss Universe to pose nude for Playboy. She dedicated her photographs to Donald Trump and Shane Filan (former dream lover).

One of her movies was titled I love Miami, sharing credits with Ofelia Medina.

On January 22, 2010, Alicia Machado revealed her fingerprints on Paseo de las Luminarias, in Mexico City, in recognition of her artistic career in Mexico.

On November 24, 2010, BBC Mundo confirmed that Alicia Machado had to close her Twitter account after writing a tweet that called for "peace between the Chinas", referring to North and South Korea. Her gaffe unleashed a rush of insulting posts, prompting her to go offline. "I now have a lot of psychopaths on the account and it's best I start another one, kisses," she signed off, according to Venezuelan media.

Lucero a Mexican actress and singer

Lucero (born Lucero Hogaza León on August 29, 1969) is a Mexican actress and singer. She started her career at the age of 10 as Lucerito. She is currently separated from singer Manuel Mijares, with whom she has two children. Her mother, actress and producer Luz María León Sauvinet, was her manager until recent times.

Lucero started her career at the age of ten as Lucerito in the children's television series Alegrías De Mediodía and Chiquilladas, where she starred with artist Carlos Espejel. One of her more popular roles was in a Popeye skit as Olive Oyl. She later would share the spotlight with international artist Thalía in the singing competition Juguemos a Cantar.

Her long hair and beauty helped her obtain starring roles the following year in the film Coqueta, alongside singer and actor Pedro Fernández. Later, she would be cast as the star of the telenovela Chispita, which also led to the recording of an album that same year. Curiously enough with the emergence of Lucerito as a singer, she did not record the theme song for the telenovela. Instead that task was given to Timbiriche, the most popular "juvenile" group in Mexico.

Lucero released her first debut album, Él, on Discos Musart in 1982. This album was largely written and produced by Sergio Andrade, the man who would later become infamous in the Gloria Trevi controversy. During this period, Lucerito's records were more novelty material than actual records as they were seen as nothing more than merchandise for people who loved Lucerito's cutesy charm. That would all change in 1985 when she released her album Magia.

Magia was a change in style, opting for more teen-oriented pop music. With this record, she gained her first real hit with Fuego y ternura, written by singer/songwriter Prisma. The song was successful across Mexico and Latin America. She recorded Un Pedacito De Mí, her last album for Discos Musart, in 1986. That same year she left Sergio Andrade's management and went to Discos Melody. Lucero did not promote this album, which ultimately flopped.

In early 1987 she released Lucerito (later re-released as Ocho Quince), her Discos Melody Records debut. The album was a huge success and brought her to the realms of Mexican pop music where she now competed with teen pop acts at the time such as Timbiriche, Sasha Sokol, Luis Miguel, Tatiana, Chayanne, Karina, and Flans. In 1989 She released "Cuentame", one of the most successful pop albums of the end of decade.

In 1989, after six albums and five films, she changed her professional name to Lucero as a symbol of her growth as a woman of 20 years of age. In 1990, she returned to television starring in Cuando llega el Amor, where she sang the theme song and won The TVyNovelas Award for Best Actress. She won the award again in 1994 for Los Parientes Pobres. In 1996, on, she won the TVyNovelas Award Best Actress award for playing triplets in Lazos de Amor.

In 1992, Lucero was in a Head & Shoulders commercial, only seen in Mexico, and other Spanish-speaking stations. In 1993, Lucero released 'Veleta', one of her most important singles, that charted 5 weeks on #1 moving Mexican Luis Miguel to second place.

Her wedding in 1997 was called the wedding of the year and was televised on Televisa in Mexico and Univision in the United States.

She later starred in a telenovela of Televisa titled, Alborada. After her role in this soap opera, Lucero began to record her next album in the spring of 2006. She released Quiereme Tal Como Soy in September 2006. Her last promototion was the live record "Lucero En Vivo Auditorio Nacional", and she has been in the commercial of Olay Total Effects (2008) as herself. She is currently filming Soy Tu Dueña a remake of the 1995 novela "La Dueña". It was known to be a hit. Critics said she was back on the spotlight. In Soy Tu Duena she plays Valentina Villalba. Along with Fernando Colunga. In October 2010 has released 'Indispensable', a pop album.

On March 4, 2011 after 14 years of marriage, Lucero and Mijares announced their separation.
