Wonder Woman made her big San Diego Comic-Con debut and star Gal Gadot is there!


I remember being a little girl and watching Lynda Carter become Wonder Woman on the original TV show. It was the first woman I ever saw that was a bad ass, other than my mother of course. She was strong, fair, and not afraid of anything. I owned pajama and underwear sets that had the logo emblazoned on it. I'd steal foil from the kitchen and wrap them around my wrists because I was powerful too.

When I first moved to LA last year, I saw Ms. Carter at a party and I froze. I interview celebrities for a living and I'm not star struck by many. But Lynda Carter is burned in my memory as the superhero who helped teach me the kind of woman I wanted to be.

You can only imagine how excited I am about the new movie with Gal taking over the titular role. She's currently in Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center where the trailer has just made its debut.

Check it out now and get ready for the film when it hits theaters in 2017.

Lil' Pudsy and Big Fat Pudding

I'm the human slave to two cats and I'm not sorry. If you're a fellow cat lady, you know what I'm talking about. Cats have these funny little bossy attitudes and they'll remind you on a daily basis what you're doing wrong. I get meow'ed off when the food isn't out and ready at the correct time. If I'm not providing cuddles at the very moment they'd like, they yell while comfortably sitting on the computer. And Lord help me if I don't clean up the litter box every day.

Throughout the years, I've learned exactly how to keep my cats happy and I want to pass on the knowledge to you dear friends. A happy cat equals happy human slaves.

1. Cats know what they like and they will not change their mind for you. One of my cats is a total cuddle bug and the other is a scaredy cat. The friendly cat, Big Fat Pudding, will greet strangers when they arrive at the house and he let's you know he wants to hang out. My youngest cat, Lil' Pudsy, will probably never be your pal. 

Learn their unique personalities and love them their way. This will help them open up to you as time goes by. Lil' Pudsy was a feral cat that found his way to my door at about 5 weeks old. His personality has evolved so much for the better because I let him be himself.

Pet Me Too Momma!
2. Learn what your cat is trying to tell you. Cats have their own little way of showing you what they want. When one of my cat jumps on the bed or couch and head bunts me or nudges my hand, they want a cuddle. Take a quick break and show them some love! If you don't, they'll work harder to get your attention! As previously mentioned, I've had Big Fat Pudding lay his twenty pound body on my laptop or in my way. He's part Maine Coon, hence how he got his name.

3. Find out what food works best for your cat. I realize that we're all on budgets but you should try to get the best food for them that you can. In the long run, it'll save you on vet bills and your cats will be happier for it. Lil' Pudsy will eat nearly anything but Big Fat Pudding will throw up if he doesn't like it. When switching out food, mix it up for them before completely replacing it. I have found this helps him adjust so much better.

Also keep in mind that cats don't really need carbs, they need a high protein diet.

4. CLEAN THE LITTER BOX! I hate using caps lock but I can't express how important this step is. If Pudding doesn't have a clean box daily, he will "go" wherever he knows that'll make me mad. I used to wait until my kitchen bag was full to clean the box but it's not enough. That's why you have to spoil your kitty by purchasing a Litter Genie Cat Litter Disposal System. I picked one up a few weeks ago from my local Target and I haven't heard one complaint since.

It's small enough to fit in our litter box area and it magically keeps the house smelling awesome. So having a clean litter box is a win-win for everyone. Since I have two cats, I'm going through the bags  quicker but for a home with one cat, the refill (which is 14 feet long) lasts about two months. It's so worth it! The way it helps eliminate odors and a trip to the dumpster daily is well worth the price.

Buying refills was also a snap. Target had plenty in stock along with a whole bunch of other fun and yummy stuff for the fur balls.

It was so easy to find my Litter Genie at Target

5. I am very against having a cats nails removed. So to keep a happy home, I make sure they have more than enough scratching posts so they don't use the furniture. It's part of their natural instinct to sharpen their nails. I make sure to trim them at least once a month to make sure they don't get too long or they could end up getting caught on bedding or the carpet.

They hate selfies but they indulge me
When you practice these five steps, you'll have a happy cat and a happy home. Just watch their body language and they'll tell you. In return, they won't scratch up your furniture or yell at you because their little box is full or they haven't been fed. A schedule and a fresh smelling home are important to both you and your cat. 

Love your fur babies and they'll love you back!


Kat Von D announced on Facebook that the two makeup moguls are no longer friends.

The poop has hit the fan this morning after LA Ink star Kat Von D slammed Jeffree Star on her popular Facebook account. She is making huge claims against Starr including the he's promoting drug use, racism, and bullying.

Here's what she wrote:

"After years of making excuses for, and rationalizing Jeffree's inappropriate behavior (including, promoting drug use, racism, and bullying) I can no longer hold my tongue after recent events. I know that over the years, many of you were introduced to Jeffree through me, and regardless if you chose to continue to follow him or not, I just would like to disassociate myself from him and his brand from this point on. I plan on posting a video explanation as to why I felt compelled to make such a statement. But for the time being, I simply want to apologize to anybody and everybody who has ever had to deal with any of his negativity. And yes, with a heavy heart, I will be pulling the shade "Jeffree" from my collection. Sending extra love to everyone out there."

There's an overwhelming buzz in the comments section with followers agreeing with her statements especially as it pertains to bullying. One fan even claims Star pushed her mother and called her a bitch. Another says he called her sister a fat bitch! Wow...

Star is basically saying he won't bother getting into what happened. He claims the two haven't spoken to each other in a long time.

"Someone I haven't seen in over a year, wants to make a post about me, he Tweeted. "I'm yawning right now....."

He continued, "Kat and I texted a few days ago after 6 MONTHS of silence. She never supported me or my brand and got distant when I launched mine. She accused me of something that wasn't true, so I told her to fuck off and then blocked her number. Not that juicy of a story, sorry. This whole situation is sad and gross. I don't need to clap back or make a video about someone's post. It's getting trite. Instead of feeding into negativity and internet fights, I'm going back to the real world and off to enjoy the rest of my day"

Von D replied, "Jeffree-we texted on Saturday. Should I post a screenshot of you telling me to fuck myself after asking you to pay for the artwork u stole?"

So much drama! Check out her video statement. Whose team are you on?

When it comes to enhancing the flavor of a meal, there's nothing I like more than wine. I love to cook with it and I also like to use it to pair with many of my favorite dishes. There are a lot of rules out there to help you do it the "right way," but I've found that it all comes down to what tastes good to you. So don't be shy! Gather your amigas and la familia together to sample different dishes and make it a fun event for everyone.

Forget about what you've heard: white wine doesn't only go with chicken and fish and red meat doesn't only work with red wine.

So what are some key points to follow? Here are a few simple things that will make the experience easy and fun. Keep in mind, you can use red or white wine when you host your event. But I'm going to focus on white because I find it's the easiest to work with and the most versatile.

1. You Don't Need To Spend A Lot- I love using the award-winning Sutter Home wine because they have a wide variety of wines available at affordable prices. They're my go-to wine all year round but they're the best during the summer months because it's so refreshing when it's muy caliente. Not only that, but are at least 5-6 locations within a 5 mile radius (minimum) of my home that carry Sutter Home.

Another thing I love about them is that they have different sizes you can purchase, si! For dinner parties I stock up on the 187ml sizes to encourage my guests to experiment. Sutter Home carries a nice Chardonnay, a sweet Moscato, a yummy Riesling, a delicious Pinot Grigio, and my favorite Sauvignon Blanc in that size. These are the perfect staples for any meal.

The larger sizes, including the 750ml and 1.5L, carry many more options. So buy various varietals in different sizes. You never know which one will be a hit!



2. It's Ok to Have Your Go-To Favorites-I can eat nearly any meal with a glass of Pinot Grigio or a Chardonnay. But if you go to a restaurant, ask the server or sommelier for a suggestion. It's a great way to try something new. Don't be surprised when your palette begins to change and like new flavors. Be open, and try something new!

3. Think Outside the Box- Do you know how delicious it is to have champagne with salty foods like burgers and pizza? I attended a champagne pairing dinner once and we sipped on bubbly with a variety of dishes including the aforementioned burgers and pizza as well as truffle fries, risotto and even steak. Champagne is extremely versatile and works well with red meat.

I used to only drink sweet wine like Riesling with dessert. Now I pair a refreshing glass with spicy food as well as Asian food like Korean BBQ. You can even have it with tacos! The sweetness from the wine will help create the perfect balance with some spice.



4. Chicken (and Seafood) Is Your Friend- Chicken and seafood are my favorite ingredients to cook with and drink with wine. Nearly any white wine goes well with either dish. If you're feeling adventurous, these are the two dishes to try it out with.

I make this super easy chicken dish where I brown chicken breasts on medium heat on both sides with nothing on it but a little salt and pepper. After browning, I add some white wine to the pan with onions and garlic. The chicken sucks up the wine and it's so juicy!

It hardly takes any time at all and it can be cut up in a salad or served over rice.

Also paella is muy sabroso with white wine. I went to an outdoor wedding where they had a giant paella chef cooking up so much goodness. Go for a light Sauvignon Blanc so as not to overpower the delicious flavors of the dish. You'll feel like you're visiting Spain!

5. Don't Skip Dessert- Sweets should not be ignored when it comes to pairing wine. Chocolate can be tough to pair but once you learn how to break it down, you'll love it! A Chardonnay works well with medium dark to milk chocolate. Bittersweet dark chocolate is excellent with a White Zinfandel.  Creamy milk chocolate goes perfectly with a Sauvignon Blanc.

If you prefer white chocolate, go with Moscato or Champagne. A delicious flan also pairs with champagne!

Sarah Jessica Parker returns home to HBO with her new show, Divorce this fall.

If you were as big a fan of the long-running series Sex and the City, you might be as excited as I am about this first look at Sarah Jessica Parker's return to series television. In Divorce, SJP stars as Frances, a woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.

I need to talk to Frances because starting over is never easy but she should not be dismayed. She does have children with her husband played by Thomas Haden Church however, so I sort of get it. He apparently had an emotional affair and he doesn't think it's considered an actual affair. Are men really that daft? She should of just dumped him via text message. You know, it's the new post-it note!

The trailer is kind of boring but I'm going to assume that every girl has hopes of finding similarities to Carrie Bradshaw in this character. The only similarity you'll find is that Molly Shannon, who played one of her book publishers in SATC, is also in this show.

'm sure they were going for something totally different. Regardless, I'll be watching when it premieres! What do you guys think?

Stella McCartney announced she's expanding into the area of men's fashion on Thursday. The designer, famous for creating male-inspired clothing for women, will debut this fall.


One of my favorite designers, Stella McCartney, confirmed news she's expanding her business by adding menswear. The debut collection will be released on November 10th in London alongside her women’s resort 2017 collection. Stella will continue to create sans leather or shearling.

“I want to deliver to men what I deliver to women,” McCartney told the New York Times, “A wardrobe, a choice and effortless modern clothes.”

Stella has dabbled in menswear in the past, making suits for father Paul McCartney and husband Alasdhair Willis. She's also made athletic gear for both men and women of Britain’s Olympic team in collaboration with Adidas.

My favorite men designers are Tom Ford and Dolce & Gabbana. But if her creations from the past are any indication of the future, they're going to have some major competition.

When I moved from Miami, I thought my days of going to concerts and hearing Latino acts were done. So when I got the call and heard Premios Juventud was hitting the road with a special concert series heading to Los Angeles AND that I was invited, I couldn't type "yes" and "thank you" fast enough.

This special project involved me visiting my local Walmart and buying products that would help me turn up the volume on my look. So what products did I pick up? As you can see from the photo above, I had a lot of fun with my TRESemmé products and my go-to body wash from Dove.

Here's the breakdown of what I bought:

TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner:

TRESemmé is one of those brands that has been on heavy rotation in my household since I was younger. So when I saw they had an "Expert Selection" line featuring no dyes, no silicones and no parabens, I knew this duo would help get my hair shiny and bouncy. I do not like buying products that are full of the extra stuff that can be bad for your hair.

Also, the conditioner left me tangle-free! I normally add an oil to my hair after using shampoo and conditioner but this time I didn't have to.

PLUS: The featured ingredients, coconut milk, aloe vera, and macadamia oil, are all ones I stand by and look for in other products.

DOUBLE PLUS: They smell amazing! My hair gobbled up the subtle and sweet fragrance. This will be awesome for later when I'm dancing and sweating!

TRESemmé TRES Two Hold Hair Spray:

I just told you I plan to jump around and dance all night. It is a concert after all! When I trust a brand I stick to it, so I purchased TRESemmé's hairspray as well. I found out earlier this week that I will partake in a meet-and-greet with the talent performing! How exciting, right? So you know what that means right? SELFIE TIME! 

I need a hairspray that was going to keep my 'do looking fly but not sticky. No one wants to hug a girl with helmet hair.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash with NutriumMoisture

When I get the chance to work on these types of projects, I love trying out new things. But I really cannot live without my Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash. I suffered from dry skin before moving to Los Angeles and now it's even worse. So I live for products that give me extra moisture. 

I pour the body wash onto my pouf and POOF! My dry skin is gone. I truly live for this product and I think I'll wait awhile before deciding to swap it out for something new. 

Dove promises, "Softer, smoother skin after one shower" and it was true for me.

All of these products are available at great prices at your local Walmart. To learn more about them and other great products, click here http://lbx.la/SEvY.

Happy Hour with Sutter Homes (Photo: Rosy Cordero)
Happy Hour is the time when my girlfriends and I plan most of our fun adventures. So it was only appropriate that we planned our trip to Spain over a few bottles of Sutter Home wine and a charcuterie board full of goodies. It was a hot afternoon in Agoura Hills and we had nothing but time to discuss our upcoming excursion.

Sutter Home is our go-to wine for summer no matter if we're soaking up the sun outdoors, enjoying a happy hour or having a girls night in.For this get-together, we went with some sweet options including a Pink Moscato, White Zinfandel, and a fruity Gewurztraminer. I also grabbed one of my favorites, Chardonnay. But you can do this with red wine or a mix of red and white. Sutter Home really has an awesome selection of wines at great prices for every occasion.

After choosing the wine, we paired a variety of cheeses including Goat Cheese, Gouda, Mozzarella, Iberico, Manchego, and Feta. Other great items that worked awesome with the wine include Italian Salami, Iberico Ham, grapes, pears, figs, and dried cranberries. Oh and don't forget the nuts! We used almonds and walnuts but you can use a mixture of your favorites.

The Three Amigas Kandice, Val, and Rosy are headed to España! (Photo: 
We were meant to review our travel books over the bottles but we ended up really enjoying the various flavors of the wine and how they paired so nicely with the different food options we selected. Now we have an excuse to plan for another happy hour!

Even though we will be drinking a lot of wine while we are traveling throughout the motherland, we will be instantly taken back to this moment--- the delicious flavors and the fun times--- no matter where we are. Can we get Sutter Home wine in Spain?

Cheers to More Adventures with Wine and Good Friends

If you weren't able to get your hands on Rihanna's Creeper Collection from Puma the first time around, you'll have another chance before Memorial Day! The Barbadian princess will be selling three new looks, so make sure you have your credit cards ready so you don't miss out again.

Rihanna's New Creepers are HOT! (Photo: PUMA)
I was obsessed with Rihanna from the moment I heard her first hit Pon de Replay in 2005. Imagine how much more I fell in love after learning about her love of shoes?! It's true, most women ADORE shoes but RiRi has proven her obsession by partnering with not just Puma---a brand I've been wearing for ages, but also with shoe gawd Manolo Blahnik.

The one thing both collections have in common is that Rihanna is just a regular girl underneath all the glitz and glamour. She loves a comfy pair of kicks and the look and feel of denim. A girl after my own laid-back heart.

The two standout differences in the new Fenty by Rihanna are the addition of satin (ooh-la-la) on the black pair and the suede green/burgundy color. I hate to admit this but I am dying for the patent leather white pair. It might be the most basic of the trio but I bet you can't find another pair of white sneakers this sexy.

I dare you to try.

Get one or all of the Creepers on May 26th.


It's difficult keeping up with your New Year's Resolution because #life. I must admit, I've not been doing my best. So as we inch closer to summer, we need to get back on track. I don't know about you all but I plan on looking and feeling good in my warm weather gear!

I'm currently obsessed with all things Ashley Graham (Photo: Swimsuits For All)
Thanks to Ashley Graham and Denise Bidot, the world has changed the way they look at curvy girls. My name is Rosy, and I'm pretty damn curvy. I'm currently carrying a bit of extra weight as well but luckily I got some great tips from Wonderful Pistachios’ Health Ambassador, Laura Posada that'll help us get back on track.

1. Meal Prepping Helps A LOT! 

One easy way to get (and stay) on track is by making an effort to do meal prep for the whole week. Just be sure to prepare in advance and use a little creativity so you don’t get bored by the end of the week. A little meal prepping ahead of time goes a long way. For example, you can think about the times of day when you usually get cravings, and replace unhealthy snacks with fruits or nuts, like Wonderful® Pistachios, instead! This may help reduce the temptation to reach for whatever not-so-healthy options are available in the workplace or on your drive home. 

2. Treat Your Body Right 

Besides improving your physical appearance, the most important part of healthy eating is supplying your body with the nutrients it needs to give you more energy. Experts say that aside from nutrient-dense fruits, like bananas and berries, pistachios and other nuts are an ideal food for energy that may last all day long. Pistachios contain a combination of protein, fiber and monounsaturated fats – the good fats - that our bodies need. 

3. Try it, Own it! 

Keep in mind that you must combine healthy eating with regular exercise to achieve your optimal health. Try a variety of exercises and find out what you like best. Maybe you are a runner, a swimmer, a cyclist, or a whiz at Pilates…who knows…just get moving! Your body will appreciate it plus you will set a good example and be an inspiration for your kids! 

4. Be Their Role Model 

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential not just for you alone, but also for your entire family. Here is our list of clever little tricks you can use to give your family’s meals an extra boost of nutrients that will ensure satisfaction: 

  • Make fun bowls of trail mix, using pistachios, almonds, raisins, goji berries, and other dried fruit. On weekends, keep the bowls out so everyone can nibble throughout the day. 
  • Make homemade soups using fresh vegetables, such as carrot soup, that you can sprinkle pistachios on top of for a good crunch.
  • Bake homemade protein muffins and add pistachios, zucchini or pumpkin to the batter. 
  • Have a barbecue with family and friends and make grilled chicken, meats and vegetables like corn, zucchini, peppers, and broccoli. These always taste great on the grill and are much healthier than typical backyard party foods like hot dogs and hamburgers. Add a few interesting dipping sauces, like a pistachio salsa that everyone will be sure to fall in love with!
