Rita Moreno Got Frank About Her Sexuality And Epically Debunked The ‘She Still Has It!’ Myth About Older Women

Earlier this week, Rita Moreno stirred a mass of smirks and dropped jaws when she admitted that Elvis Presley was pretty “meh” between the sheets. During an interview on ‘The Wendy William Show” the Hollywood icon and Boricua dished about her career as an actress and affair with Elvis Presley. And while, yes, she revealed some pretty juicy stories that even your abuela’s chisme circle would be fascinated by even after all of these years, there was more meat to the interview than just Moreno’s sex life.

Here’s the break down!

Moreno is one of twelve people to have ever won all four of the major American entertainment awards known as the EGOT, but she didn’t like to brag about it for a while.

Moreno is the only Latina in history to have received all four competitive awards. She holds an Academy Award for her 1961 role in “West Side Story,” two Emmy Awards for her 1977 appearance on The Muppet Show and 1978 appearance on “The Rockford Files,” a Grammy award for her 1972 recording for “The Electric Company” and a Tony for her 1975 role in “The Ritz.” Still, despite her impressive accomplishments, Rita admitted during her interview with Williams that it took her years to allow herself to brag about them. In fact, it wasn’t until after her husband pointed out the importance of her achievements that she removed them from a BOX in her GARAGE and put them on display.  “I was always kind of shy about it, I thought it was like showing off,” Moreno told Williams before smiling smugly. “Well i don’t mind showing off now.”

During her interview, Moreno also got real about that Oscars dress she wore twice.

Williams gushed over Moreno’s decision to recycle the dress she’d worn for the Oscar Awards back in 1961 when she won her first Academy Award and wear it this year for the ceremony. But before, Williams could go any further, Moreno corrected her saying “actually it didn’t,” Moreno said frankly before going onto explain that when she “tried to put it on for the Oscars this year there was a gab like this in the back, so we made it into a corselet and put laces.”

Of course, Moreno got real about being sexual and older.

There’s a myth that Hollywood and media outlets perpetuate the moment a woman turns older than 50. Suddenly, they begin to market her as woman who “still has it!” If she’s older than 70, she suddenly becomes the “cute grandma” type who seems to completely have forgotten about her libido. Moreno, who stars in the Netflix hit series “One Day At A Time,” didn’t have to remind fans that she’s an older woman who never questioned whether she had “it.” Speaking about her role as the show’s matriarch, Lydia, Moreno highlighted her effort to ensure that the character represented real women by ensuring that the creators included one key trait for her role. “I said to them on the phone there’s only one reason I will do this but you gotta say ‘yes,'” Moreno explained while recalling a conversation she had with executives about joining the show. “I know she’s supposed to be 77, I’m 86, but i said she has to be a sexual person.”

Unforgettably, Moreno also opened up about what it was like having an affair with Marlon Brando and dating Elvis Presley.

It’s not the first time, the Oscar-winning Latina has opened up about her relationships with the actor or the Rock & Roll icon. In 2013, the actress penned Rita Moreno — A Memoir and wrote about her eight year affair with Brando. In her memoir Moreno admitted that the actor pressured her into pursuing abortion during their relationship, cheated on her regularly and ultimately drove her to attempt suicide. “We were locked in the ultimate folie a deux, a crazy love that lasted for years,” Moreno wrote. “Until one day I quite literally was forced out of a coma and had to choose life over him.”  She also wrote about the days in which she dated Presley which “nearly always concluded in a tender tussle on my living room floor, with Elvis’s pelvis in that famous gyration straining against his taut trousers.”

Still, Moreno’s stories about Brando and Presley gained more attention this week when she revealed that in comparison to the sex she had with Marlon, sleeping with Presley was a lot like “amateur night.” OUCH. She also admitted to Williams that Presley “slayed me good because he was the king of everything. Everything.”

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 GarcĂ­a 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

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

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!

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

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. 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.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“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.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.
