HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.

Lorraine Rodríguez was originally supposed to be performing in the title role of a workshop presentation of the play Julia de Burgos: Child of Water (written by Carmen Rivera and directed by Cándido Tirado), to be held on what would have been the 99th birthday of the famous Puerto Rican poet. Rodríguez, who incidentally was quite pregnant at the time, started feeling contractions the day before the reading. As a result, on the same day as Julia de Burgos’ birthday, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Meet the newest collaboration of Rodríguez and and husband Marc Reyes, daughter Julia Helena Reyes (or Julia Helena Reyes Rodríguez al estilo latino), shown at left. She was born at 9:54pm on Sunday, February 17, 2013, weighing 7.6 lbs and measured 19 ¾ inches long. She joins big brother Marcus Joaquín in the family. El Blog de HOLA is happy to report that mother, father, big brother and daughter and are all doing well.
