07.7.2017 | By |


On today’s episode 39, we talk Spider-Man Homecoming with Grae Drake, Senior Editor of Rottentomatoes.com, who joins us to review and dissect the new reboot. We think its better than Wonder Woman. We also chat with Angelica Celaya, the star of Telemundo’s new Jenni Rivera biopic, Mariposa del Barrio, about the challenges in becoming Jenni, handling the love and hate from Rivera’s fanbase and how bilingual latino actors still have a hard time not being seen as real Latinos. And finally, the New York Latino Film Festival is back from the dead and Dennis Williams, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Social Responsibility at HBO, joins us to talk about why they brought back the festival, what’s in it for HBO and can this Latino festival ever become as big as Sundance?  Read More

Thank you for downloading episode 30 of the Highly Relevant podcast! On this week’s episode, we talk with the creator of the most anticipated show in Spanish language TV right now, Univision’s EL CHAPO.

TODAY SHOW: I Recommend My 6 Top Spring Must-See TV Shows

03.31.2017 | By |

 Me watching the screen with Kathie Lee Gifford and Craig Ferguson (Hoda is out on maternity leave) reminds me of Mystery Science Theater 3000. There were a few surreal moments about this segment. First, I loved the set design. It’s a lot more casual and real. I didn’t touch the popcorn because I knew I wouldn’t get a word out. Two, Craig Ferguson dedicating time to flatter me over my name is absolutely nuts. I guess Detective Rico doesn’t sound so bad, lol. That makes Christian Slater and Billy Bush who have done that. Really nuts. Three, hearing my podcast said out loud on national TV is a point of pride for me since it’s so difficult to market your show to a wide audience. Nevertheless, enjoy the spring shows I selected just for you and read below 5 trivia moments you don’t know about Netflix’s Five Came Back

TODAY: Breaking Down MTV’s VMAs, J-Lo & Marc Anthony, Rob Lowe’s Roast

08.29.2016 | By |

This TODAY show segment I did this morning on Kathie Lee & Hoda was absolutely cool. It was bicultural and it felt like an extension of me and my HIGHLY RELEVANT podcast, which you should listen to if you haven’t. Overall, it was just fun to talk about the Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony event which was such a Latino subject, since the concert was in Spanish, with salsa music and the song No Me Ames is a Spanish-language tune. Also, I enjoyed being able to discuss my dissatisfaction with MTV’s VMAs on my podcast, then break it down the morning after on national TV. Truly a blessing for a professional in the pop culture industry. Hope you enjoy it!

New Trailer: Jennifer Lopez’s ‘The Boy Next Door’

09.8.2014 | By |

Jennifer Lopez who seems to think it is the year 2000 all over again, is back making music and movies. In her latest film The Boy Next Door, very reminiscent of Beyoncé’s Obsessed, Lopez leads the cast in this psychological thriller that explores a forbidden attraction that goes much too far. Directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) and written by Barbara Curry, the film also stars Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth.  Release will be January 23, 2015. Read More
