Roselyn Sanchez: We Are So Proud That We Are Latinas

Posted: Updated:

Roselyn Sanchez's new show is stirring up controversy and it hasn't even aired yet. She talked about "Devious Maids" with Steve and Maria and says the new series is under fire because the five maids in the show are Latinas, they're maids, and they're devious.

Sanchez defended her character and the show saying there's no disrespect and points out when the original series aired in Mexico, no one there had an issue with it. The actress also talks about the dream she has yet to achieve, her 17 month old daughter, and how doing an "early" show isn't so early now that she's a mom.

Fun facts about Roselyn:

  • She was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the youngest of four siblings, having three older brothers.
  • In 1992 she made her movie debut, having landed a small part as an island girl in the movie Captain Ron, which was partly filmed in Puerto Rico, starring Martin Short and Kurt Russell.
  • In Puerto Rico, she gained public attention as a dancer and as co-host of a variety show called Qué Vacilón. At that time, in 1993, Sánchez won the Miss Puerto Rico Petite contest, and in 1994 she won the international title of Miss American Petite, bringing her international fame.
  • In 2001, Sánchez was cast as Isabella Molina, an undercover United States Secret Service agent who was Jackie Chan's love interest in the hit movie Rush Hour 2.
  • In 2003, she played the role of Lorena in the movie Chasing Papi, starring alongside Jaci Velasquez and Sofia Vergara. Sánchez has acted in some 20 movies, including as Maria in Edison and as Karen Lopez in Underclassman. She starred in the Puerto Rican film Cayo, released in 2005.
  • In the fall of 2005, she joined the cast of the television series Without a Trace, where she played Agent Elena Delgado.

    Sutter Zachman had his first record deal when he was barely out of his teens. You may have seen the Orange County native was on stage at the Largo and other hot clubs around LA. He then left town...after what he called a few "bouts" with the music business, but now he is back with a new EP called ‘Repeat Offender.'
