Giselle Blondet, (born January 9, 1966) in New York City, United States, is a Puerto Rican actress and show host. Blondet became famous at around the age of 14, when she began to appear on Puerto Rico's telenovelas. As a soap opera actress, she was on many of Puerto Rico's soaps of the late 1970s, and the early 1980s. In 1998 her career took off internationally when she was given the opportunity to co-host Univision's show Despierta America In 2005, Giselle Blondet released an autobiography and left Despierta America, to host a new television show about real life tragedies. I wish my fellow Puerto Rican the best of luck.
