New online Latina talk show goes where Oprah and Barbara dare not

LatinaLista — One of the reasons why Latina Lista was started (in 2004) was because there was a sadly disappointing lack of Latina voices in the blogosphere. Thankfully, since then, a lot of Latinas listas have come online sharing their voices — but there are still areas where Latina voices are extremely underrepresented. One of them is in the talk show TV realm.
For some reason, television, whether it be cable or the networks, have long overlooked Latino talent. The announcement that George Lopez will have his own TBS talk show, Lopez Tonight, come November does little to erase the fact that there are no Latina voices hosting a talk show — hasta ahora!
Putting a Latina twist to The View concept creates a new online show called “Let’s Talk.”

Let’s Talk is a 15 minute “Anytime” internet talk show with a unique perspective on culturally relevant topics with universal appeal.
Let’s Talk! is a ground breaking English-Language talk show featuring four intelligent, opinionated, hilarious, dynamic and professional Latinas. Emmy-award winning host and actress Marabina Jaimes (Storytime); actress-comedienne Dyana Ortelli (Curb Your Enthusiasm); Bel Hernandez, Publisher of Latin Heat, a print and online magazine; and actress Kikey Castillo are ready to tackle any subject.

Found on the Latin Heat web site, the talk show promises to dish about issues that are important to everyone — but seen from the unique perspective that is totally Latina!
About time!
