El 30 de junio de 2013. Hola. So Charytín has a show now on the Mega TV network, which I can’t get.
But first muchachos, before I forget it, this is a “Public Service Announcement” (that’s what I’m calling it) from myself y mi amiga: I will assume anyone reading this knows about the ABC-Univisión joint venture as it’s called. So, would someone please scream at the people at ABC and ask them to please learn to pronounce Univisión correctly? The word Univisión is español because it’s an español network. It is not inglés. The people at ABC say, “you nah vision” or some mangled version of that. Pathetic, but so typical of the English-language corporate media in the U.S. Again, the word Univisión is not an inglés-language word so why try to say it as if it were? How would they (at ABC) say the español word “gracias,” for example? Would they say: “gray-sigh-ass” in their attempt to put the word into inglés? As mi amiga said, “Is it too much for them at ABC to learn to pronounce just ONE word correctly en español? How about giving some respect to español? Is that too much to ask of them? The English language (as their first language) speakers damn-sure expect respect of English.” True. Very true. And why does Univisión allow ABC to constantly mispronounce, mangle and butcher the name of their network (Univisión)? WTF? Why don’t they teach the people at ABC how to say Univisión? My rant is over, but hopefully some kind people reading this will pass this along and maybe even to ABC so they will stop sounding so damned ignorant of español. You would think that since ABC is doing this “joint venture” with Univisión that they would at least know how to correctly and authentically pronounce the name of the español-language network they’re doing their deal with. Wouldn’t you think? (Sigh. Pathetic. Just Pathetic.) Muchísimas gracias for listening to my rant and maybe you even agree with it. Now back to Charytín: I’m glad to see she’s back on television, although she’s not on a major network where she belongs. She pretty much looks as she did when she was on Escándalo and Charytín still seems to have the same level of energy she had on Escándalo. I miss Escándalo. I found one sample video of Charytín’s show (below). Off topic: And speaking of Univisión is it a little surprising to anyone else that El Gordo y La Flaca is still on? The reason I mention that is because about a year or so ago it was on the verge of being cancelled. Remember that? And I haven’t noticed the show changing that much since then. Lately, I’ve been hanging out on Telemundo’s existos tv network. They have a lot less annoying, noise-pollution commercials on there and they don’t ram text-addicting tech gadgets, apps and waste-of-time corporate “social networks” down one’s throat the way they do on Univisión. Did the ratings improve with El Gordo that much to keep it on the network? You can write a comment about it if you’d like at this email address (email@example.com) and I’ll put it on for you.

I don’t watch Sal y Pimienta which is on Univisión on Domingo at 10pm (I’m usually busy doing something at that time), but I specifically watched the beginning of the show last Domingo to see if Marisa Del Portillo was back. She wasn’t there again. At this point, I was rather convinced that she was gone from the show. After doing a little bit of research, I learned that her contract with Univisión was not renewed and she was fired, but nothing was said about this on Sal y Pimienta. I’ve said this before but there doesn’t seem to be such a thing as job security at Univisión. Other people are wondering: What’s going on at Univisión?

Hola. I was thinking about Charytín the other day. So much for the rumor that she and Felipe were going to do a show together! That hasn’t happened that I’m aware of. I forget now where it was but I read somewhere that Charytín was working on or was going to work on a movie in México and I’ve heard no more about that. It would appear that Univisión wanted to get rid of her. I guess they decided to retire her since she wasn’t going to retire herself. Then I was thinking about Marisa Del Portillo on Domingo because I’ve not seen her shoved over on the end of the table (almost out of view of the cameras) on Sal y Pimienta recently. What happened to her? Maybe she’s just gone for the holidays. And Felipe has recently been hosting a show on the Estrella TV network. If anyone has any more information than I have about any of this, leave a comment below and I’ll post it for you, por favor. Gracias.
El 30 de enero de 2012. Hola. Until recently, Charytín Goyco was one of the three hosts of Escándalo TV (along with Marisa and Felipe) on TeleFutura in the Estados Unidos. We at pink barrio miss Escándalo TV. As you may know, Escándalo TV was cancelled (a bad decision on the part of TeleFutura/Univisión) as Escándalo was overall a good program. The program it morphed into (Tómbola) was then cancelled the 3rd week of Enero/January 2012. Charytín will supposedly be starting her own show in the Spring on TeleFutura. We enjoyed her on Escándalo. We always looked forward to the musical segments and (like Marisa and Felipe), Charytín was most welcoming to the many musicians who performed on the program and you had to love her reggaetón segments with the talented bailarines (dancers) who assisted her.
Most people like the idea of Charytín having her own show in the Spring, from what I read and most said TeleFutura should bring back Escándalo TV. (I agree). Then you have the sour people (they don’t like anything). Clearly, they have personal “issues.” One sour person said that Charytín is, “an old woman who’s trying to act like a 15 year old (really?), and she should put away her boobs (oh don’t do that!) and sit in a rocking chair and crochet for her grandchildren.” One wonders if that person would have said that to Charytín’s face? Or did the person say that because the person was able to hide behind a computer keyboard anonymously? And what a silly and rude thing to say. One also wonders where some people come from who write such stuff. Well, we at pink barrio cannot imagine Charytín doing as that sour person suggested. But I have to ask: where is it written what someone is supposed to be doing such and such at a certain age? I’ve heard that thinking many times—-and always dismiss it—–and it’s rather outdated thinking. According to the sours, Charytín is supposed to be sitting in a rocking chair (translation: waiting to die), which is likely what might just happen to her or anyone else who becomes sedentary sitting in a chair. I suspect the sours would also say, “oh, you’re too old to dance; you’re not supposed to be dancing at your age.” Nonsense! We’re of the opinion that one should do whatever they want to do and look however they want to look regardless of their chronological age. If one doesn’t like looking at Charytín or her boobs, don’t look at her. No one is forcing you to. Don’t you have other channels on your TV? Many people like to control others and what they do and how they look, we’ve noticed. Who are these people that come up with these ridiculous rules of what a person is supposed to be doing or how they are supposed to be dressing or looking depending upon their chronological age? It’s blatant ageism and we do live in an ageist society. We don’t think of Charytín as “old.” In fact, when we see her we don’t think about her age at all. It’s irrelevant. We enjoy her as an entertainer and singer (she’s a singer too, you know. She has a nice voice). Some people choose to be “old” at age 30 because they’ve been programmed with that outdated mentality by someone. Some people die years before they actually die. That’s true. But being “old” is really a state of mind. It’s a mind-set. Others say, “I will never be old regardless of my chronological age.” A medical problem or disease can make one feel badly, which some people misinterpret as “old.” One should really say, “I feel badly” which is more accurate, than “I feel old.” And medical problems and diseases aside, one is only as “old” as one chooses to be mentally. Fortunately, we sense that Charytín rejects this ageist thinking that many people hold to and like to project onto her, and from what I can tell, she rejects it and has decided she will not be “old.” I say:
You go, muchacha! Chau.—rosa barrio
