Unshocking Wiki-Revelation: Alan García Has ‘Colossal Ego’ and Could be Bipolar

In the latest unshocking revelation regarding the banana republics that -according to U.S. diplomats- make up the Latin American continent, we learn that the U.S. worried that Peru’s president Alan García had “a colossal ego” and cited rumors he could be afflicted by manic depression or bipolar disorder.

National Latino Media Coalition Thinks ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX Not Diverse. Thank God for Hispanic TV

This week the National Latino Media Coalition (NLMC) scolded the nation’s top broadcast networks for not embracing diversity (i.e. mostly for failing to employ more Latinos in front of and behind the camera.) In a press conference on Tuesday in Los Angeles, Alex Nogales, president & CEO of the NLMC said that:

“This was a terrible year for Latinos at the networks. African Americans and Asian Pacific Americans posted impressive gains in most categories, but when it came to Latinos, the networks failed us. Don’t misunderstand, we don’t want what African Americans and Asian Pacific Americans received, the pie is much larger than that, we only want what we deserve as the largest minority consumer population in the nation.”

Well said, Mr. Nogales! But I wouldn’t hold my breath too long if I were you… Last time I checked, even the main Hispanic networks insisted on drawing their top talent from some sort of Swedish incubator.

JLo Likes to be Spokeswoman for L’Oréal Paris ‘Cause Products Are Affordable and All

L’Oréal Paris on Dec. 3 announced it has tapped JLo as global ambassador for the brand, mostly because she is, like, super popular and all, but also because the Bronx diva is a confessed fan of the beauty brand. According to an “inspiring” press release sent out this week to the media, JLo loves the new gig because:

“Having used L’Oréal Paris products most of my life, I’m excited to work with a brand that consistently offers a wide range of superior products that are attainable for women everywhere.”

And the key here is the word “attainable”… Last time we checked, JLo was peddling $1,600 Gucci sweaters for toddlers.

Perhaps this time we will actually be able to try out something the diva really really likes. Or not.

Santas Trompetas! Mariachi-Clad Santas Take Over New York City

One of the many perks of living in New York City is that, no matter where you go -or what mood you’re in- you will always bump into a band of authentic mariachis wearing Santa hats. Well, maybe not always, but it happened to me this week at the unbearably touristy, and easily avoidable Columbus Circle shopping mall.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering: that thing showing behind the glass is one of Salvador Dalí’s famous melting watches. How cool is this!
