Today in 1950 “La Bomba de Puerto Rico” Iris Chacon was born in San Juan. The buxom Puerto Rican entertainer was the star of many telenovelas and her popular El Show of Iris Chacon, was seen in 15 countries.
She often made the late night TV circuit during the 1990s. Like Dolly Parton everyone in Latin America loves her for her risqué outfits, great sense of humor and her ample butt. Today there is Kim Karadashian’s oversize backside 45 years ago it was Chacon’s backside that made headlines.
The bombshell of Puerto Rico started her career in 1969 and today still makes the Puerto Rican festival circuit.
Chacon made history for being the first Hispanic presenter on the front pages of the Wall Street Journal, celebrating Puerto Rico’s most famous commercial starring Chacon and her backside promoting automotive coolant.
