Happy Monday morning.
Last Friday, we went to bed exhausted but happy to have closed the first day of production of BELatina’s new project, BELatina TV. We have so much to tell you; we don’t know where to start!
However, we will try to focus and tell you the most important news of the weekend.
From the impact of Hurricane Ida in Louisiana to the 20th anniversary of Shakira’s “Whenever, Whenever,” here’s what you need to know to start your week.
BELatina is launching a national TV show, and we cannot be more excited!
Last Friday was our first day of production of BELatina TV, a national TV show that will take the Latina experience to a whole new level. Although we wish we could give you more details, we leave you with a sneak-peek as a gift. Stay Tuned!

Hurricane Ida devastates Louisiana
