Latina's August issue, cover girl Daisy Fuentes spelled out her secrets of success and one of them was to give 110 percent. Well, Jersey’s favorite cubana is definitely taking her own advice. Now a full fledged business mogul with her own line of clothes, fragrances and hair products, Miss Daisy is returning to her television roots with a new project as host and co–executive producer of American Latino TV this coming fall.
American Latino TV is an award-winning, English-language TV program that targets U.S.-born Latinos, and executive producer David Morales thinks Fuentes is excellent for the part. “Last spring, we shot a segment for the show with Daisy telling the story of her inspirational transition from starlet to businesswoman, and I think we both just realized that she was a perfect fit,” he said.
Daisy couldn’t be happier about this new business endeavor. “I’ve always been a fan of American Latino because I relate to the people that are featured and feel inspired by the stories they share,” she said. “My culture is a huge part of who I am, and the show captures this perspective in a very entertaining way, week after week.”
The eighth season of the nationally syndicated half-hour weekly begins airing the first weekend of October.
