Unless you’ve been living on a remote island lately (I’m talking to you, Jorge Garcia), then you’ve probably heard about Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon’s semi-naked pictures surfacing on the web last week. But I bet you haven’t heard about the 25-year-old cantante’s new reality show that’s in the works for MTV. On the day before her scandal broke (talk about crazy timing!), the part-Ecuadorian, part Boricua called me from the road and dished about something far less controversial–her upcoming small screen project.
“I have a lot of cool things in the works,” said Adrienne. “Amazing projects with MTV that are pretty definite. Most likely, I will be moving to New York City to work on my own MTV show, which I am so excited about!” she gushed. Adrienne is already quite comfortable on TV, since she was featured on the VH1 reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s” with her boyfriend, Rob Kardashian, and has starred in three hit Cheetah Girls movies for Disney…and hopefully once this little controversy dies down, she’ll do even more of those: “We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a fourth Disney movie-maybe the Cheetah Girls go to Carnival!” she said at the time.
While I had her on the line, I asked Adrienne what she thinks about fellow Latina, Selena Gomez, becoming Disney’s newest princess. “I was the first Latina to ever be on the Disney channel,” she responded, explaining that Selena isn’t the first chica to be embraced by the kids network. “It was also great to be the first Latina to host Hispanic Heritage Month on The Disney Channel.” Now granted, I am a 25-year-old guy who doesn’t tune into The Disney Channel all that often, but I felt bad for not remembering that Adrienne was, in fact, the first Latina to star in a show on their channel. Props to her for that!
What say you, Vivo Por TiVo readers? Will you watch a reality show starring Adrienne Bailon? And now that you know she was the first Latina to be embraced by Disney, who do you prefer: Adrienne or Selena?
