MIAMI, FL January 21, 2009 – It’s an exciting new moment for Hispanic-American culture and a new generation of bicultural celebrities is bringing fun and creativity to music, TV, fashion and the Internet.
At the forefront are the 19-year-old actresses/writers Mimi Dávila and Laura Di Lorenzo, aka the Chonga Girls, who in the last 18 months have gone from YouTube sensations with over 4.5 million views to nationwide popularizers of the youthful Latina chonga lifestyle.
Now, El Show de Cristina, Spanish TV’s No. 1 talk show with 4 million viewers in the U.S. alone, is featuring the Chonga Girls. Titled “Llegaron Las Chongas” (The Chongas are Here), this one-hour episode of Cristina airs at 10 p.m. ET, Monday, January 26, on Univisión.
Co-hosted by Cuban-American sensation, rapper Pitbull, this episode features the girls cataloguing the chonga outlook on life, singing their viral online hit “Chongalicious,” and announcing upcoming projects.
