It is common to come across Giselle Blondet being regarded as an actress. While this is true, she is much more than just someone who made acting her profession. Having spent almost 4 decades in the entertainment arena, it is quite unfair to submit her accomplishments as an entertainer only as an actress.
Should we ask her to talk about herself and her attainments in the entertainment industry, Giselle would surely, albeit subtly, point out that there are few of her kind in the United State of America. She would go beyond affirming herself as one of the most acknowledged and loved Hispanic actresses in the country and specify that she is equally among the most admired entrepreneurs and television personalities of Latin America.
Even if she comes across as being arrogantly boastful, one would have no option but to nod in agreement with her. This is so because, among other things, Giselle Blondet got to be the host of Nuestra Belleza Latina which is generally regarded as Univision’s most-watched reality show. Disregarding that, she equally hosted the reputed morning television program, Despierta América.
Although Giselle Blondet is no longer very active in the business of entertainment, she has remained relevant. The lady who has been serving as the spokesperson of L’Oreal Puerto Rico since 2014 is compassionate about promoting the welfare of humanity.
