This last week has been terrible for Latino couples in Hollywood. Instead of being the stereotypical, passionate love markers, my people are ending relationships left and right. And without the breaking of dishes!
See world? Latinos can be calm, cool and collected after all.
First, Jennifer Lopez breaks up with Casper (the friendly ghost). Then comes news that Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith are getting a divorce after an 18-year marriage.
What had happened was (I’ve always wanted to write that phrase though it’s oh-so wrong) that Jennifer caught Casper texting a transgender model named Xristina Marie. (Allegedly!) It doesn’t matter if she is a she or a he or a he/she – it’s still cheating. And apparently La Lopez gave him the boot. Casper is denying the cheating rumors. I mean, who would cheat on J.Lo?
As for Antonio and Melanie, it is said that they have been separated for months. Sources claim that they have had issues for a while, including Melanie’s addiction to painkillers. Her overkill on the plastic surgery probably didn’t help their love matters.
So, lets raise a glass of sangria and pour some out for these two couples. And pray to Jesus Cristo that others do not follow suit. Time to prender una velita, Latinos in Hollywood!
