Prince Falls in Love with Karen Olivo

Pint-size pop music powerhouse Prince was apparently so taken with Karen Olivo after watching her accept her TONY award that he decided right then and there that he had to meet her...that very night!

So, he hopped into his car and booked it to the Hudson Terrace for the TONY after-party for West Side Story in search of the beautiful (and married) Broadway star. Olivo won the award for Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Anita. Shortly after arriving at the party, Prince spotted Olivo and promptly sequestered himself in a corner with her and several other girls from the West Side Story production. A reliable source told New York magazine that Prince plans to take in the show on Tuesday and has reserved an entire balcony section so that no one can sit around him.

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.
