Raquel,

Please excuse the delay in getting to your post. We are still in the process of refining the show and input like yours really helps.

Thank you for the topic suggestions. We have taken a few into consideration and one of your suggestions, about the Sex, will be shot this coming June 19. We will make sure we ask some of your thoughtful questions. So in a bout 2 weeks we should have it up for you to enjoy.

Thank you again for your interest...and tell a few 1,000 friends bout our show. Gracias!

Really nice show. I have been watching the show from when it first started and have seen it evolve into a much more professional production. Initially some of the hosts were obviously reading from cards and that took away from the spontaneous nature I think you wanted to convey. Things are more relaxed now. Dyana Ortelli shines and Bel adds gravitas. Marabina and Kikey need to join in more. The more colorful the clothes the better, ladies. Leave the dark clothes home. I think much thought and consideration has been given to the selected topics. This has added depth and dimension to the show. I'd like to suggest some topics that are hitting communities. Topics such as: Should a relationship suffer if the woman makes more money than the man? Should joblessness be a deal breaker in a relationship? How much say should a child have in a parent's relationship with a significant other? Are Latino me emasculated by a strong woman? Latina cougars....are they all growl and no claws? How much sex is too much sex? Quantity vs quality of sex. Sex and the mature woman. Are Latin men really sexier or does this stereotype not do justice to the meaningful dialogue and communication that some women crave (even over sex). What can one do as a Latina when faced with blatant racism such as the Arizona law that allows for racial profiling? What are effective stands against such laws. Homophobia, will it ever be excised from the Hispanic consciousness? Lesbianism and how it is hidden in the Hispanic communities. The minority educational gap, what is the parents' responsibility in this. Are we right to blame schools for the gap when attendance, homework and encouragement from home is often missing.
