In honor of Fourth of July, America's Independence Day, I'm honoring American Things We (I) Love:
Why? She's amazing. Most people know her from Ugly Betty but I first discovered her in a movie called "Real Women Have Curves." That movie was really important for me because I, too, moved from Los Angeles to New York to go to Columbia. I, too, am a real woman who has curves. I, too, have had magic moments made more magical by because Manu Chao's "Minha Galera" is playing in the background. PLUS, she was in those "Traveling Pants" movies, which were pretty terrible but provided all of us with hilarious pants puns for a year or two.
Up next in our celebration of American Things We (I) Love: America (the band)...
