It often happens that Giselle Blondet is considered an actress. This is true, but she is much more than just someone who has made acting his profession. After having spent almost 4 decades in the entertainment industry, it is quite unfair to present her achievements as an entertainer only as an actress.
Should we ask her to talk about herself and her achievements in the entertainment industry, Giselle would certainly point out, albeit subtly, that there are few of her kind in the United States of America. She would go beyond claiming that she is one of the most recognized and popular Hispanic actresses in the country and point out that she is one of the most admired entrepreneurs and television personalities in Latin America in equal measure.
Even if she comes across as arrogantly boastful, one would have no choice but to nod in agreement. One of the reasons for this is that Giselle Blondet became the host of Nuestra Belleza Latina, which is generally considered to be Univision’s most-watched reality show. Nevertheless, she also hosted the renowned morning show Despierta América.
Although Giselle Blondet is no longer very active in the entertainment industry, she is still relevant. The lady, who has been a spokesperson for L’Oreal Puerto Rico since 2014, is a compassionate advocate for the well-being of humanity.

The following things you should know about the actress.
1. Her Age and Early Life
Do not try to guess the age of Giselle Blondet, as you would most likely leave her in a place much younger than her age. She is in her fifties, but would easily pass for a lady in her mid-thirties.
However, it has been confirmed that the Puerto Rican actress was born on January 9, 1964. Her birthplace was New York, and after her birth, she was named Alba Giselle Blondet Gomez.

Her first was with Luis Iglesias. The marriage, which officially started in 1982, broke up at some point in 1984. Whatever the problem was, it is best known to Luis and his wife. Giselle definitely had a strong affinity with the name Luis. She married another Luis in 1986, this time Luis Abreu. The marital bond did not last as long as her first one; it broke as quickly as it began in 1987. Giselle’s longest relationship was with Harold Trucco.
