Rica, Famosa, Latina
Known for her outspoken personality and daring wardrobe in Estrella TV’s hit Spanish reality series “Rica, Famosa, Latina,” Marcela Iglesias is an actress, singer, entrepreneur, and self-proclaimed “Queen of Hollywood.” However, most people are unaware of the fact that the self-made millionaire built her real-life Barbie business empires through grit, glamour, and hard work for decades!
EstrellaTV returns with another season of the fan-favorite, gossip-driving reality series “Rica, Famosa, Latina.”. After a four-year hiatus, the new season explores the lives of six wealthy, socially famous Latinas in Los Angeles and Mexico. You can watch the series across a variety of Spanish-language platforms and the EstrellaTV app.
Her last business venture involved minting a non-fungible token (NFT) and giving fans a signed pillow to make digital art more appealing and real. Marcela Iglesias pounding the pavement with her revolutionary flair explores cryptocurrency and NFTs at Rarible.
Twenty years ago, Marcela immigrated to the U.S. as an undocumented immigrant and worked day in and day out for 10 years to create the life she always dreamed of. As a result of physical and psychological abuse from her first husband, her life came to a standstill, prompting her to pick up and start over. Since she worked three jobs and was the sole breadwinner for her family (son, mother, and father), she knew she was destined for something greater and began working towards becoming the self-made woman she is today. Currently, she operates The Plastics of Hollywood, a talent management and lifestyle brand, while also investing in real estate.
It seems that Hollywood’s “Do-it-all Barbie” has a hand in every cookie jar and shows no signs of slowing down. The star of Tru Channel’s “My Extraordinary Family,” Marcela has been very open about her cosmetic enhancement and aims to end the stigma associated with it. Her core views on parenting, love, acceptance, and support are very candid and honest. In addition to animal welfare, Marcela is a strong advocate for women’s empowerment as well as LGBTQ+ rights. With over 1M followers on Instagram, she has used her social media platform to raise awareness about issues such as women’s equality, anti-animal abuse campaigns, and improved LGBTQ rights.
Marcela shares her triumphs and tragedies openly, encouraging others to keep fighting for their dreams.
