    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.

    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.

      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!
