Famous blogger for celebrities Perez Hilton will be part of the entourage for Univision’s program “El Gordo y la Flaca,” the network announced Wednesday.
Every Thursday, starting this week, Hilton will have a segment from California on the show to report on the latest gossip and buzz concerning Hollywood stars.
Hilton - whose real name is Mario Lavandeira - was born in Miami to Cuban parents and is one of the key bloggers for the entertainment industry. His online work arouses among his fans all sorts of feelings - except indifference - and his blog gets an average of 200 million visits per month.
Hilton recently got his first acting role in Spanish, playing the part of a “paparazzo’s guru” who gives advice to the protaganist of the MTV Latin America telenovela “Popland.”
Lavandeira studied drama in college and has appeared in drama series including “The Sopranos,” and as himself in reality shows like “Double Exposure” and “Holly’s World.”
