Eva Longoria And George Lopez Brought Their Best Friends To Family Feud And It Got Raunchy

“Family Feud” had a ton of Latino Celebrities on over the weekend in an epic showdown to raise money for charity. On one team was Eva Longoria, with “family members” Justina Machado, Amaury Nolasco, Ana Ortiz and Wilmer Valderrama. They were up against leader George Lopez, his daughter Mayan Lopez, actors Constance Marie and Ray Diaz, as well as the golden boy himself, Oscar De La Hoya.

It quickly became an interesting game with Spanish translations being thrown in the mix. When asked to pick a top answer for “something you roll,” Justina Machado said “tortillas.” The crowd erupted into laughter as she said, “These are Latinos up here, come on!” There was a ding and the board flipped, and the answer revealed was “dough.” Which led Lopez to protest, “Wait a minute. It’s called masa!” Host Steve Harvey laughed when Lopez explained: “masa is not where the Mexican astronauts train.”

You’d think after becoming a boxing champion and Olympic gold medalist, nothing could stress De La Hoya out…

But he stutters so hard here you’d swear he’d just been knocked out.

Like your two drunk tios at a quinceañera, De La Hoya and Nolasco came out ready to rumble.

My money is always on De Le Hoya.

Diaz, at one point, ripped his shirt off.

De La Hoya definitely looked at him like, “Okay, but can he take a punch?”

Harvey couldn’t believe Diaz’s answer, instead of asking the judges to focus on his abs.

The actor had opened his shirt at one point in the episode but gave such a ridiculous answer, Harvey thought it served his best interest to just keep it open to detract from the clueless response he’d just given.

Lopez knew what he was doing when he led Harvey down this line of thinking…

You know in Harvey’s head he was like, “Man, this is a family show, don’t you say marijuana…”

Harvey asked a question about male strippers and got an equally appropriate answer.

Longoria shouted “What kind of game are we playing!?” as her team burst into laughter.

Longoria and company had team spirit all the way.

I was just happy to see Latinos on TV, but couldn’t help but start rooting for these three ladies.

Longoria’s team made it to the final round and both she and Nolasco tried their best avoid a particular question.

It seems people’s “members” are an ongoing theme of the show.

Watch until the end, it’s worth it just to see Longoria’s victory lap.

Oscar de La Hoya Announces That He Is Officially Coming Out of Retirement, Will Start Boxing Again in July

On Friday, boxing world champion and Olympic gold medalist Oscar de la Hoya announced that he officially coming out retirement.

The announcement that Oscar de La Hoya was coming out of retirement came at a press conference hosted by boxing and MMA enthusiast, Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg teased the big announcement saying, “I smell something golden. You smell it?” before Oscar de la Hoya arrived on stage to reveal his big news.

“July 3, I’m making my comeback,” he said before dramatically dropping the mic and exiting the stage. Based on their reaction, the audience seemed excited about the news.

Oscar de la Hoya has been teasing his return to boxing for a while now.

Rumors of de la Hoya boxing again had been circulating for months. In August of last year, the Golden Boy revealed to ESPN that he did, indeed, have plans to come out of retirement.

“The rumors are true, and I’m going to start sparring in the next few weeks,” he said. “It’s a real fight. I miss being in the ring, I love boxing. Boxing is what gave me everything I have today, and I just miss it.”

Oscar de la Hoya’s last boxing match was in 2008 against Filipino world champion Manny Pacquiao.

The 2008 fight was a major loss for de la Hoya and he stopped the fight after the eighth round. After that loss, de la Hoya famously said: “I don’t have it anymore.”

At the peak of his career, Oscar de la Hoya was the top-rated fighter in the world. Since he retired from boxing, he has spent most of his energy building Golden Boy Promotions, a boxing and mixed martial arts promotion firm. He is the first Hispanic-American to own a national boxing promotional firm.

The former world champion also founded the Oscar de la Hoya foundation, which aims to “help improve the quality of life for the community in his hometown of East Los Angeles.”

De la Hoya isn’t worried about his performance, because he believes he has passion on his side. “These [young] guys are in it just for the money — that’ll be the big difference,” he told ESPN. “I will fight for the glory, and these guys only fight for the money. And guess what? The glory will always win.”

As of now, there is no word on who the Golden Boy will be fighting, although he previously said that he will fight “any top guy out there”. We’ll see how it goes!

Looking for a show to fill the “Jane the Virgin”-shaped hole in your heart? Well, we may have some good news! Eva Longoria and Zoe Saldana teamed up on a new series called “The Gordita Chronicles” for HBO Max.

According to Deadline, “The Gordita Chronicles” will a follow a “willful, chubby, 12-year-old Dominican” named Carlota ‘Cucu’ Castelli. Cucu “struggles to fit into hedonistic 1980s Miami as her family pursues the American dream.”

Zoe Saldana has long been a producer on “The Gordita Chronicles”, while Eva Longoria was recently tapped to direct the pilot episode and executive produce the series.

But these two powerful Latinas aren’t the only ones with their hands on this project. Dominican-American producer and writer, Claudia Forestieri is the brains behind this series.

Forestieri is a former Telemundo reporter who changed tracks and began a career in TV-writing. She has previously written for Latino-centric shows like “Selena: The Series” and “Good Trouble”. Forestieri is a self-described “bilingual & biracial TV writer of Dominican-Italian descent who was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Miami.”

Eva Longoria took to Instagram to express her elation over being involved in such a trailblazing project.

“The Gordita Chronicles” is the perfect-storm of Hollywood Latino talent that have been working to have a project like this greenlit for a long time.

“I’m BEYOND excited & honored to announce my part within this brilliant team of women coming together to create ‘The Gordita Chronicles’,” she wrote. “I’ll be directing the pilot, while working alongside the amazing and talented @claudiforest, @brigliebs, @zoesaldana, and so many more!!”

She ended the statement with a comment and the sad state of Latino representation in Hollywood. “The lack of representation and diversity in Hollywood continues to be a major focus, rightfully so, and I’m so honored to be a part of the change!”

To make things more exciting, they have already found their lead. After an intensive search, producers cast an up-and-coming Afro-Latina child actress named Olivia Goncalves.

Per Deadline: “The Gordita Chronicles centers Carlota ‘Cucu’ Castelli (Goncalves), a willful 12-year-old Dominican immigrant with a heart of gold. Cucu leaves her home and her parochial school in Santo Domingo to live in Miami and pursue the American Dream during the hedonistic 1980s after her father, a marketing executive with a large airline, gets transferred there.”

The show will focus on Cucu as she “meets head-on the challenges of being an immigrant in a strange new world with humor, bravado and some really bad choices.”

If the synopsis is any indication of the show’s promise, please count us in! This sounds like a heartwarming, unique story that Hollywood doesn’t spotlight often enough. We can’t wait to watch!
