Mexican TV Co-Host is Sexually Harassed Live on Camera, but It Might Not Be What You Think

On A Toda Máquina, a music show on Mexico’s Televisa network, viewers were stunned to see host Enrique Tovar sexually harass his co-host, Tania Reza. And then he laughed about it! Like, WTF Enrique Tovar? Didn’t your mother teach you how to RESPECT women? But like any good telenovela, the story has twist after twist. Shit is bizarre. Check it out.

First, Tovar got a little too grabby for Reza’s comfort.

There is no reason to be pushing your crotch on her like that.

Then he went a bit to far with Reza prompting a smack down.

But that didn’t stop him from one final attempt.

Tania Reza walked off camera saying how she didn’t need to be subject to that treatment.

Way to stand up for yourself, Reza.

After the video went viral, the co-hosts released a video claiming that they are good friends and that it was just a joke.

Yet, on the same day as the apology video, Reza implied they were “pressured” to say it was a hoax. She posted this to her Facebook page.

GRACIAS A TODOS POR SUS COMENTARIOS Y MUESTRAS DE AFECTO. LAMENTABLEMENTE EN ESTAS SITUACIONES EXISTEN PRESIONES POR…

Posted by Tania Reza on Monday, October 26, 2015

In a statement, Televisa said that if Reza is in fact telling the truth she should let the company know so they can assist her in filing a formal complaint about the matter.

Wait…what?

Very confused…

So what really happened? No one is completely sure, but Televisa says it was a hoax orchestrated by Tovar and Reza. They fired both hosts.

This Latina is Killing It on ‘The Voice’ and Her Immigrant Parents are There Rooting For Her

This is Ivonne Acero.

Tell me she ain’t cute

A post shared by Ivonne Acero (@ivonneacero_) on

She’s a high school student from a small town in Arizona called Aguila (population: 798).

When she’s not dressed as a pepperoni pizza, she’s the vice president of her high school’s student government and a varsity basketball player.

Acero is also the child of Mexican immigrants. She works with her parents at a local cantaloupe farm.

And despite seeing cantaloupes all the time, she loves ’em.

The 17-year-old says she loves cutting them in half and putting a scoop of ice cream in the middle.

Last year, Acero auditioned on season 8 of The Voice.

Acero saved money from her cantaloupe farming gig to buy a plane ticket to New York and audition for The Voice. She got her chance to perform in front of the judges during the premiere of season 8. “If I could turn a chair, it would be life-changing,” said Acero on The Voice.

Acero’s parents watched closely as their daughter sung “Try” by Colbie Caillat.

But none of the judges turned for Acero.

After Acero finished her performance, Blake Shelton said he was mad at himself for not turning around. Christina Aguilera said Acero just needed a bit more experience.  Adam Levine, who said her performance contained “so much good,” asked her to come back the following year.

Pharrell noted that Acero’s shy demeanor affected her performance.

“Let that microphone go… let it go,” said Pharrell, who added:

Acero took their advice and auditioned again this season.

And within 10 seconds, two judges turned for her.

Acero’s family went crazy.

So did host Carson Daly.

Especially her father, who couldn’t hold back his tears.

Of course, Acero chose Team Pharrell.

In the following “battle round,” Acero lost to Siahna Im. But she was given a second chance.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton both tried to “steal” Acero, who eventually chose to join Team Blake.

Being saved by another coach did wonders for her confidence. The following week, Acero was wowing guest coach Rihanna during rehearsals:

After a bit of coaching from Shelton and Rihanna, Acero won her “knockout round” with a gripping performance of Katy Perry’s “Part of Me.”

Acero shook off the shyness that plagued her previous performances and spread her wings, just like Pharrell asked her in the previous season.

After her breakout performance, Acero politely asked fans not to compare her to a certain Latina TV character:

Acero will continue her quest to win this season of The Voice, and you can bet her parents will be along for the ride:
