Mariela Rosario

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.

Since then, Fuentes has been building her brand with a fantastic fashion line for Kohl's, a beauty line and a set of exercise DVD's which turned into a super popular Nintendo Wii game.

But besides her talent, de la Reguera is unapologetically Latina in all facets of her life!
