She’s fab and she knows it. She’s got platinum dyed hair, is obsessed with leopard print and loves pairing them with metallic leggings.

She’s what most call La Tía Cotorra. She never married, but is eternally hopeful that she’ll one day meet her prince charming and that’s why she spends HOURS getting ready. In the meantime, she’s the one who sits at the table holding the other tías’ purses while they get down on the dance floor with their husbands.

She spills the beans at every family party and gives updates on the latest family gossip. It doesn’t stop at family, she has no chill and fills everyone in on what’s happening with everyone from the neighborhood.

She always has el Jesús en la boca, asks when was the last time you confessed and carries a bible around to read her favorite verse to you.

This is self explanatory. She’s goes to literally every party she’s invited to and indulges on the free booze.

She flaunts her MK bags at every party, but we only like her because she has a pool and spoils us for Christmas.

You only see her once a year on Christmas, but your mom makes you talk on the phone with her sometimes and it’s so awkward because you barely know her.
