What got you into radio?
I originally wanted to be a High School counselor. I got a D in psychology (hope my kids don't read this) so I decided to try something else! While in college I found myself on the speech and debate team. I discovered I liked working with my voice. I've always loved music. Hummm...what could I do with voice and music? DJ! I changed my major and here I am.
What's the last thing you spent $100 on?
A CPR class. I finally got certified, wish I would have done it a long time ago.
Tell us a random fact about yourself.
I was a Mexican Ballet Folklorico dancer for 20 years. I almost ran off to dance with one of the best groups in Mexico. It was my senior year of college and I decided to finish up my degree instead. Now my son and daughter dance. Get this...their instructor was a dancer in the group I wanted to run off with!!!! He now lives in the Bay Area and has his school here. Talk about a small world!
Can you do a cartwheel?
Yes I can, the splits too! For now anyway, ask me again next year.
Favorite sentimental quote.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift...that's why it's called the present.
Secret guaranteed weeping movie.
I'm a huge Barbara Streisand fan. I've got to go with Funny Girl and The Way We Were.
What do you consider a vacation?
Staying in bed all day on a Sunday with the newspaper, my favorite books and videos. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served on a tray with a rose and champagne. Disneyland ALWAYS works too!
Where were you born?
Castro Valley, CA
What do you cook best?
Mexican food. All of my dear mom's recipes.
Christina and Cee Lo Return
I'm so bummed! I really enjoyed The Voice with Usher and Shakira. I like them more than Christina and C-Lo!
I didn't watch Idol this season. I got hooked on The Voice! It looks like The Voice will be returning to the original judging line-up. According to The Wrap, Christina Aguilera will reportedly get $12.5 million for season 5, that's less than the $17 million she got for season 3. Negotiations are still underway with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. I say keep Usher and Shakira!!!
Sources say Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting their second child. Their daughter Blue Ivy is 15 months old. Beyoncé was spotted wearing an outfit that kind of showed a slight baby bump, and she also said during an interview that she wants more kids. Beyonce just canceled an upcoming show too....so what do you think? Pregnant or Photoshop?
Angelina Jolie has revealed that she had both breasts removed after her doctor told her she had a high risk of breast cancer. She did have them surgically reconstructed. She says, quote, "I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity." She also praised Brad Pitt for supporting her through the whole thing.
After 37 years Barbara Walters, 83, is calling it quits. She released a statement saying, quote, "I do not want to appear on another program or climb another mountain.

Randy Jackson announced yesterday that he'll be leaving "American Idol" at the end of this season. He's going to start focusing on his record label and other projects. On a side note Mariah Carey also announced that Randy will no longer be her long time manager. Double whammy!!!
Sitting next to a crying baby on an airplane might be a welcome alternative to sitting next to this woman! A flight was forced to make an emergency landing and kick a woman off the plane after she refused to stop singing Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You'. CLICK HERE or above to hear her singing voice! She is definitely not going to be the next American Idol anytime soon!
Kanye West made a complete fool of himself on Friday, when he was out walking with Kim Kardashian. He was walking with his head down, to keep from giving the paparazzi any good shots and he walked head first into a metal sign and gashed his forehead. Of course in Kanye's mind it was all the paparazzi's fault. Check out the crazy video above.
