Recently on Facebook, we posted our story “Why Do So Many Latino Celebs Go By More Than One Name?” and asked you, “What’s the funniest Latino nickname in your family?” Check out some of the comments here:
Noemi LeNette: My aunt is CUSA.... my uncle KILO..... and my brother JEDI..... yep!, Oh, original names are Gladys, Jose, and Jedidiah... :)
Christa Cecilia Parra: I have a cousin names Chiva! And trust me she acts like an untrainable animal

You may have thought that Eva Mendes's singing ambitions ended with her hysterical rendition of "Pimps Don't Cry" with Cee-Lo for her hit comedy The Other Guys, but you'd be wrong!
Apparently, the new face of Thierry Mugler's Angel fragrance decided to personalize the television spots one step further by performing the song for the commercial as well.

If ever you need proof that blondes have more fun, just take a good look at Cameron Diaz. While most actresses her age are collecting Oscars, husbands and babies, Cameron seems more interested in dancing on tables and making younger women jealous of her bikini body. Her bubbly attitude certainly spills over into her movie roles, where Cam has made a name for herself as a bombshell comedienne.

There’s a new guy on the Daily Show and we have to admit, we're shocked it took Jon Stewart this long to hire a "Senior Latino Correspondent"!
Mexican-American stand-up comedian Al Madrigal made his debut Tuesday night, immediately correcting the host, "It’s actually pronounced 'Señior' Jon, but thank you, good to be here,” he joked.

When Nick Cannon sat down recently to talk to Gayle King for her new OWN show and said that the whole birthing process with his wife Mariah Carey was a "production," we were like, "Duh! It's Mariah freaking Carey!" What was he expecting?!

This just brought us back to That '70s Show and reminded us how freaking funny Wilmer Valderrama can be! After a few serious turns in movies like The Dry Land alongside America Ferrera, the Venezuelan and Colombian actor has returned to his roots with this hysterical spoof music video. All we have to say is, Enrique Iglesias better watch out.
Catch Wilmer as alter-ego Eduardo Fresco in "The Way I Fiesta" below. ¡Que loco!

Rodolfo Burgos, a contestant on the hit reality singing competition "Yo Soy" in Chile, stood up in front of a panel of judges and declared, "Yo Soy Shakira" (I am Shakira) before proceeding to sing a cover of the Shaki hit "Gitana," that wowed the show's panel of judges.

Our favorite Broadway star, In the Heights creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, has landed a guest spot on ABC's hit comedy Modern Family!
Miranda created a few instantly classic episodes of House when he guest starred opposite Hugh Laurie as Alvie, House's roomate in the mental institution where the doctor resided for a while—so we can only imagine what he has in store for us on Modern Family.

We couldn’t stop laughing out loud at this hysterical Star Wars parody. Aubrey Plaza is hysterical and has officially cornered the market for the best blank stare in Hollywood.

We couldn't stop giggling at the Modern Family promos that aired during last night's Oscar telecast and apparently, we weren't the only ones who just loved the commercials. Watching Phil Dunphy guess while Sofia Vergara's Gloria Pritchett acts out an unknown film is the highlight, "Pretty Woman! Sex & the City! Milk!"
Someone was even kind enough to post the extended version to Youtube so we just had to share. Watch the funny promo below:
