  • Jessica Alba has signed herself and her daughter, Honor, up for Spanish lessons, as she wants to take on more Spanish-speaking roles and was devastated when her inability to speak Spanish led some to question her heritage early in her career: "I didn't want to misrepresent Latinos and I didn't know how to defend myself. But I went to my room and I cried all night. Since then, I've preferred not to comment on the subject," she says, "I tried to explain to them that, in this country (America), I'm considered Latina and, thus, I consider myself Latina as well. I grew up eating enchiladas... I identify with Mexicans. It's in my blood whether or not I speak Spanish." [DailyExpress]
  • Alicia Silverstone says she doesn't mind people continually associating her with Clueless: "It's actually really pleasant.

She said Clueless was her favorite movie of all time, and she had just introduced it to her ten-year-old daughter, who now loves it. It's kind of sweet that there's this generation now sharing it with their kids - like how my mom and I were watching Thorn Birds together." [NYMag]
  • Nicole Richie tells Marie Claire that she never had an eating disorder, despite the tabloid stories that claimed otherwise after she lost a dramatic amount of weight a few years back: ""I felt it was a little unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don't.

Robin's death obviously meant nothing to him. She is being treated by Pete like she didn't exist." [TheSun]

Then one day a year and a half ago, it hit me over the head while I was making a hearty breakfast that it wasn't, in the grand scheme of earthly things, intended for me." [JustJared]
  • Parks and Recreation has been renewed for a third season. [EW]
  • Tila Tequila claims The Game is the father of her child and says ""Just wait nine months for my paternity test. I'm not worried about it. Game has nine months to live out all of his fun lies. Live it up baby!" [RadarOnline]
  • "I've seen both sides. I've had people in stores drop everything to help me, but then I've also been with the big movie star where I'm the one in the background that nobody gives a damn about. I was a waitress and a bartender and a coat-check girl, and I am grateful every day to be doing what I love, so I get furious when I hear about actors being precious. We're not curing Aids, and we're all lucky to be working - so be polite and be professional." -Julianna Margulies [TimesOnline]



I think Jessica Alba really tries to make things right when it comes to how she is represented in regards to race but either has a terrible case of foot in mouth or a devil may care attitude when it comes to choosing her words. As a Latina myself, it's painful to hear things like "I grew up eating enchilladas" (so therefore I MUST be Mexican). It's not that I think she personally has pride issues, I just think that the ideas she uses in an effort to defend herself reiterate the same stereotypes that make it an issue in the first place. Even if you'd never had an enchillada in all of your life,you would still be a beautiful Mexican woman. Hell, you could own a f-ing enchillada factory and be German, Greek, African American, etc. etc...
