Three weeks before the end of her long running talk show, Cristina Saralegui has told El Nuevo Herald that ending the show wasn't voluntary as Univision announced in August. Cristina is now saying the network cancelled her because of her age.
"They want to change the image of the chain and get rid of older workers and replace them with youngsters,'' she said. "I'm too old to do what they want. And I think that is because I am independent and because I give the orders."
The final episode of El Show de Cristina airs November 1.
