This is Niurka Marcos:

Univision Premios Juventud Awards - Arrivals

She is my new favorite celebrity I’ve never heard of. Allow me to enumerate all the ways in which she is secretly awesome:

  1. She looks the way I imagine Daryl Hannah’s character in Splash would look if she were a character in a telenovela, which she should be, because TV needs more mermaids.
  2. She’s wearing a bolero vest as a top.
  3. At 42!
  4. She was married three times in six years, a devotion to romantical drama that I appreciate.
  5. She appeared on Big Brother Mexico. I secretly (not really that secretly) love Big Brother in all incarnations.
  6. She has her own TV show called Espectacularmente Niurka, which can’t possibly be as espectacularmente as the other show she hosts, El Show De Niurka, in which she apparently interviews people from a jacuzzi. Niurja, you had me at jacuzzi.
