Her character, Valentina Galindo, is an aspiring singer who is willing to do anything to make it big time.

How many times have we seen Latinas using their sexuality to get to a better place? Ugh.

Yes, she’s that cliché, token Latina character who has sassy comments, hoop earrings, long hair and a lot of cleavage.

And those naked make outs make us cringe since we love her like our baby cousin ?.

Yes, it’s like that.

Basically, all of this is too much for us to handle?.

We know it’s just a character, but THIS is more like it.
