—   Love sometimes hurts, as is the case for Jennifer Lopez and her fashionable Christian Louboutin shoes. The star hurt her left ankle with the heel of her stiletto shoe minutes before presenting at last Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Paramedics rushed to her dressing room, where they stopped the bleeding and got her on stage in time.

—   New mom Paulina Rubio is in hot water this week after Columbian authorities issued a warrant for her arrest.  Promoters have filed a lawsuit against the Mexican singer for not showing up to an August concert in Tuja, Columbia and keeping the $50,000 money advance for the performance.

—   A California judge denied Cheech Marin’s ex-wife a protection order from the Mexican American comedian due to lack of evidence. According to Patti Heidi, who lives next door to her ex-husband, Marin has been violent to her in the past. "It feels good to be vindicated by the judicial system,” said Marin in a statement following the hearing.

—   After a cameo in ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters,” Brazilian actress Sonia Braga will play a flamenco dancer in this year’s  Butterflies & Lightning. The fantasy/romance film features a leading Latino cast composed of Paz Vega, Alfonso Arau and Ramon Rodriguez. “The movie’s about love and family and people going away and coming back.” Braga told WWD.

—   Unlike its 1970s star Linda Jean Córdova Carter, the upcoming television Wonder Woman is not a Latina. NBS just announced that Friday Night Light’s Adrianne Palicki has been cast as a modern Diana Prince in the latest reincarnation of the franchise.
