The Hollywood Walk Of Fame Just Honored This Latina National Treasure With Her Own Star And I Am Here For The Power

Linda Jean Córdova Carter just helped boost the Hollywood Walk of Fame’s Latina power to fifteen. The half Mexican actress, most famous for her part in depicting Wonder Woman in the 1970s was honored with a star on one of Los Angele’s biggest attractions yesterday.

Officially, Carter is the 15th Latina to receive a plaque on the long trail of 2,632 stars. Carter’s determination and drive are cemented in every brick of achievement that has led to this historic moment.

Long before she harnessed a lasso of justice on screen, Carter was an aspiring singer.

Born in Phoenix, Arizona  the Hollywood icon came from a family of multi-cultural roots. Her mother, Juanita Cordova, came from a Mexican family and her father, Colby Carter was an art dealer with English and Scots-Irish ancestry. By the time she was in high school, Carter was already making moves towards stardom. With two of her cousins, Carter formed a band that featured a marimba, a conga drum, and her vocals at a casino lounge in Las Vegas. Carter moved on to attending school at Arizona State University where she eventually left to pursue a music career. In the years following, Carter pursued local Beauty contests in Arizona, an arena that at the time few women of color were allowed to successfully compete in, and ultimately went on to win Miss World USA in 1972.

Carter’s crown gained her the national spotlight and by 1974 she was being pursued by Hollywood.

After a few years pursuing acting lessons in New York, Carter nailed down a role in the 1974 police drama “Nakia.” Still, despite accepting offers for appearances on shows like “Starsky and Hutch” and “Cos,” Carter was still relying on her savings from her days of touring on the road with her band. Having begun to dip into the last of those earings, Carter was prepped to head back to Arizona when she received a call from her manager. Her earnest audition for the role of Diana Prince, Wonder Woman, had landed her the show’s lead role.

“Wonder Woman” only lasted for three seasons, but Carter’s work on the show catapulted the series to cult status.

In the decades since the TV series’ first episode aired in 1975, the beloved comic book character of Wonder Woman has been portrayed multiple times by different actresses on both the big and little screen. Still, Carter’s version of Wonder Woman remains one that fans remember most when recalling the imagine the Amazonian superhero fighting for justice and Freedom. There’s no wondering why either, Carter’s performance made a hit show that easily spoke to the power and virtue of women and was nothing less than iconic. Here’s to this national Latina treasure and her new star!

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”
