thats disrespectful that she played and latina girl in George Lopez, in my opinion.

Why is that be disrespectful ???
because she’s white???
well Latin isn’t a race,its a culture.. anyone can be a Latina.
where do you think the Spanish language and there culture came from??? It came from Spain a white country..most Latinos are native Americans or mestiza too meaning half white/half native American. But others are full white,full black,full Asian, or mixed with either of above.
I don’t think it was disrespectful, its called acting.
did you want a native American to play her role???

What ?
He doesn’t look like a Hispanic !
He is fullblood Albanian. He looks like a normal typical Albanian woman.
ALBANIANS are normal white like Irish, English, German…
Race: Non-Hispanics-White.
He also look like a Irish or English woman. :/

WTF!?!? I thought she was Latina she plays a major latina role in George Lopez & she even looks latina. If Masiela is white she should of at least been from Spain or Italy because those white countries are the closest thing to hispanic.

She doesn’t look it, at all..

WTF February 5, 2011 at 2:58 am

Are you kidding,everyone who looked at that show thought she was hispanic,because she clearly looked it.

Liza June 1, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Not really, she looked wayy different than the ‘family’ on the show.

I looked at every show,I thought that girl was mexican.Plus there is no fixed look for mexicans

Melanie Lombardi February 2, 2011 at 6:41 pm

This is such a dissapointment, I always thought she was Hispanic like Cuban or something. I’ll never look at her the same, no wonder she hardly spoke spanish on the show.

Rita October 24, 2011 at 1:46 pm

What do you mean its a dissapointment? You are pathetic for saying that. You will never look at someone the way you did, someone who has good talent just because of their ethnicity?? :S This world is going crazy!
