Who will be the next hot telenovela star? The 7 Deadly Telenovela Sins
Viva Hollywood is for sure the most under exposed show to debut in recent history. This is exactly the kind of programming I’ve been looking for and I never got the memo that Viva Hollywood was even in production not to mention ready to make it’s debut! By chance I flipped VH1 on this afternoon and set my DVR immediately to watch when the kids were put to bed. The channel that airs Flavor of Love is not one safe for viewing with kids!
The first episode introduces the cast of characters, specifying their country of origin and at times their locale in the US. Depending on how perceptive you are, or your familiarity with latino culture, you’ll know we’re fiercely proud of our own ethnic group. What is grouped into “latino” is really a vastly different array of music, food, culture, religion, etc… not to mention old prejudices and grudges.
And yes, I am peeved because it seems there’s no Brazilian on the show! I will continue to watch because if there is one thing I can be sure of, there will be plenty of drama on this show. Already my favorite was voted out on the first episode (this always happens to me) I won’t spoil it for you, but she represented the only real woman there. All the rest appear the same, run of the mill, skinny, young actresses – how interesting!
The show is hosted by Maria Conchita Alonso, herinafter referred to as, La Diva de la Casa. You’re sure to remember her latest tv appearance as Gabrielle’s mother on Desperate Housewives. La Diva de la Casa has been on tv for as long as I can remember along with the weirdo that does the astrology, he is creepy and I won’t even mention his name on this blog, being slightly superstitious I don’t want him looking at me, creepy creepy creepy. At least there’s a hunk, his name is Carlos Ponce.
My new favorite and my pick for the winner of Viva Hollywood is Roseny Carrero!
