Shakira's $3000 Bra

Shakira sold her bra on Ebay to benefit children in Colombia. The charity auction sold Shakira's jewelled bra designed by Roberto Cavall and worn on her 2007 Oral Fixation world tour for $3100. The gold outfit seen here on the left was also sold for an amazing $2716. Shakira's fans didn't just want her clothes though. A fan also bid $14,000 just to meet her. The $76,000 raised goes to Shakira's Bare Feet Foundation, which is building a school for impoverished children in northern Colombia.

Let's see.... I'll take Shakira's hair for $2,000.


The WonderBra: Listed Among Greatest Inventions

According to a survey in Canada the Wonderbra is the 5th greatest Canadian invention outpacing even the pacemaker! Created in the 1960's, at the time of bra-burning, a Canadian named Louise Poirier developed the first Wonderbra. Today's Wonderbra is virtually identical to its original. The Wonderbra made its U.S. debut in 1994 and instantly sold at a rate of one every 15 seconds!

What makes the Wonderbra so special? "Precision engineering": three-part cup construction, precision-angled back and underwire cups, removable pads called cookies- all-in-all the Wonderbra had 54 design elements that lifted and supported.

The Wonderbra revolutionized the way women thought about their bras and, not only that, but how they looked in them.

Celia: The Life and Music of Celia Cruz

The Off Broadway musical celebrating the legendary “Queen of Salsa” Celia Cruz played by Xiomara Laugart currently playing at New World Stages celebrated its 200th performance on Tuesday, February 19. It was a momentous event in and of itself, but made even more special as it was the day that Fidel Castro resigned as the leader of Cuba!

Stay tuned for review coming soon on www.LaDivaLatina.com

In the Heights on Broadway

Home is where the Hood is! Celebrate Dominican Independence Dayby going to see the critically acclaimed Broadway Show In the Heights. Although, you don't have to be from the Heights or even Dominican to enjoy this show! This is a wonderful play for anyone who is from“the block”, any block, any neighborhood. Washington Heights in New York to Boyle Heights in Los Angeles.



It’s about community and what it means to be home. In the minds of young Latinos going back home really means going back to the Barrio. In the Heights is about the loving people in a close-knit community dealing with the question should we stay or should we go? The message is clear that if even if you go, the Heights, be it Washington Heights or Boyle Heights, will always be a part of you, anywhere you go. Home is where the Hood is!

Jessica Alba: "I want a brown baby"

Jessica Alba graces the cover of Latina magazine, curiously blonder than ever though (*cough*cough*) Here are some of what the article says:

On claims that she's proud to have cut loose from her Mexican roots:
"I never said that. Cut loose from what? What the hell are they talking about? Why would I want to cut loose from the only family I know?"
ummm the q was about ur roots not ur family -i mean maybe they sold out too- we don't know!


On not learning to speak Spanish as a child:
"I wish to God that my dad spoke Spanish to my brother and me,but he didn't grow up with it."
2 wrongs don't make a right, tonta! don't worry, "tonta" means sweetheart in spanish!


On her ethnic looks:"I like that I look different. I like having flavor. I think it's funny that women get their lips injected and get butt implants. Everyone wants to look like us now."
us? wow! that's .... interesting. Can we say: yo quiero taco bell? :)


On what she wants her baby to look like:
"I'm excited for my baby to be brown. I just have to believe the dark gene is going to survive. Cash and I are like, please!"
Read up Jess, the "dark gene" is the dominate gene.


On why she doesn’t think she’s sexy:
"Scarlett Johansson is insanely sexy, Jessica Biel is insanely sexy, Angelina Jolie is insanely sexy. So why me? It doesn't even make sense."


According to scientists, Jessica Alba's body is mathematical perfection!
Outbeating even Marilyn Monroe.
Let's wait and see what happens after the baby!
Will her body bounce back? Will her baby be brown?
Will she teach her baby spanish?
Will she go back to her roots?
As the story unfolds, we'll wait the 9 months to find out!

Latin Lives: Who's the Man in the Family?


Which brother will be the man
in the house?
the macho cop or the one who
just announced he's getting married
– to another man?

Papo played by Jaime Santana, Jr. Papo is a still grieving his wife but without emotion. He never even cried at her funeral. Working long hours to cover the pain, but he says that his long hours are to pay for his son’s private school. He wants only the best for his son. He’s very macho, acts like he’s in control but in actuality he’s about to explode!

Let’s add fuel to the already explosive Papo. ---- His brother, Sammy ---- is gay. Let’s add some more candela. Sammy is about to announce he’s getting married! Wepa! Wait… there’s more ---- Ay! There is one more thing that happens in this family and someone has to step up and be the man. Which brother will it be? The Macho cop? Or the gay brother? You will hear a pin drop in that theatre.

B R O K E N - U.S. Soldier's Broken Heart


B R O K E N
-Anonymous

I used to get up at 4 or 5 in the morning and it was already 100 degrees outside! I’m in charge of 20 men stationed in Iraq. Outside forces sometimes penetrate the deepest trenches of the men’s souls. It was my job to make sure they stay focused.

I remember this one man -about 23 years old, fearless soldier. He was engaged and every night he would run back to try to contact his fiancee. When one day she broke the news to him – by letter. She broke off the engagement.

A grenade would have caused less damage. ...
