Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall
Season 4 IDX (*171) 21:50 True crime Episode 3 A young mother from Austin, Texas goes missing and while authorities think that she has simply moved, her family fear the worst.
Before acting, Blanca was a beauty 1
queen. In 1997, she won the Nuevo Leon Mexican beauty pageant, as well as the Miss México World at a pageant in Chile. She also modelled for Swiss jewellery brand Charriol in 2008 and 2009 and cosmetic brand Avon in 2011.
She hasn’t always been lucky in 2
love. Her first hubby Bill Soto died in 2004 from melanoma cancer less than a year after they married. She wed Jack Harnett (Tom in 2005 romcom Hitch) but they split in 2012 and Blanca says that “I always try to be positive. I have to think about how nice the marriage was”. Blanca then married Mexican telenovela actor Fernando Colunga in 2015 after two years of dating.
They don’t have kids but Blanca’s 3
role as Sara has ignited her maternal instincts. “I learnt a lot about being a mother through Sara. She’d defend her son Salvador (Alan Castillo) at all costs, as would I as a mother,” she says.
She has an exclusive contract with 4
network Telemundo and won’t do any acting with anyone else. And she’s come at a cost to the network – Blanca has reportedly made $5 million from her deal, half of her $10 million net-worth.
When she isn’t working, Blanca is 5
working out – but not in a gym! “I’m always outside walking my dog, riding my bicycle or paddle boarding.”
And if you want to know her 6
secret to great skin, it’s simple she says: “Olive oil is my best friend!” NB! See more on p7.
