speaking of shakira,there you have beauty,intelligence,sexyness,oh and a humble moral core. ms. welch has always come across as snooty and self serving.

There have always been hispanics in hollywood who changed their names. Like Martin Sheen, Emilio Esteves.

Regarding that clip from "Bedazzled" -- now you've gone and done it! That really made my day.

About heritage

Does Ms. Welch (born Jo Raquel Tejada to a Bolivian father and an American mother) identify herself as a latina and are there any stories about latinos finding their way in Hollywood? Does the success of someone like a J-Lo or Shakira resonate for her?

Please urge Ms. Welch to reissue/update her yoga videos. I am a huge fan and would love to see them come out on DVD. Does she still practice yoga?

I have fond memories of being a teenage boy in 1968 and watching Ms. Welch's heist comedy, "The Biggest Bundle of Them All." If you have a sec, could you ask her what it was like working with the great Edward G. Robinson?
