Este sábado 16 de septiembre de 2023, se conmemora el aniversario 213 de la Independencia de México, motivo por el cual diversas celebridades mostraron su orgullo como mexicanos con fotografías de todo tipo en redes sociales.
Una de ellas fue la consentida de Instagram, Yanet García, quien volvió ocasionar una “avalancha” de likes de sus seguidores con dos fotos que sin duda dejan poco a la imaginación.
En la primera, la “Chica del clima” posa de lado con el cabello suelto y unas botas por encima de las rodillas completamente desnuda mientras se tapa con un sombrero tricolor.
En la segunda instantánea, porta las mismas botas, una tanga negra y en la parte de arriba cubre sus senos con una especie de chalina en verde, blanco y rojo.
Además, el post está acompañado por este mensaje en inglés traducido al español: “VIVA MEXICO!!!! Saliendo con una latina conseguirás una hermosa, fuerte, mujer apasionada, leal, romántica, seductora y las más honestas del mundo. Así que no te enojes cuando se defienden y quieran lo mismo a cambio”.
En la sección de comentarios, sus seguidores criticaron que escribiera su mensaje en inglés e incluso aseguraron que solo se siente mexicana cuando le conviene: “Ni por qué hablas de México hablas en español, ya te sientes gringa mija”, “Mexicana cuando le conviene” y “Mexicana publicando en inglés”.
Otros, mostraron su apoyo incondicional a la regiomontana: “México lindo y querido!! Una de las mujeres más bellas de México!”, “Hermosa te vez espectacular sensacional juvenil tienes un hermoso cuerpo” y “Una encantadora adelita”.

Get ready for more deception, backstabbing, and murder: The Traitors is returning to Peacock for Season 2 with a mind-blowing, all-star cast of reality stars.
Once again hosted by Alan Cumming — and his ever-impressive wardrobe packed to the brim with stylish tartan and kilts — the Scotsman will be joined in Season 2 by his dog Lala, who is being introduced as his trusty sidekick. The only thing that could make Cumming and his freaking dog more exciting? A list of celebrities so long, we can’t help but wonder how they’re all going to fit in Cumming’s castle!
Set in a remote castle deep in the Scottish Highlands, five-time Emmy-nominated host Cumming will welcome these 21 larger-than-life personalities as they come together to compete in a series of challenges with the objective of earning a cash prize of up to $250,000.
The catch? Several contestants (dubbed “the Traitors”) will devise a plan to steal the prize from the other contestants (“the Faithful”) without revealing who’s stabbing them in the back.
And unlike Season 1, which saw reality television icons go up against everyday people getting their first taste of onscreen fame, Season 2 is all celebrities all the time. Let’s meet our contestants:
Season 1 featured an all-star cast of reality television icons including Arie Luyendyk Jr. (Bachelor/Bachelorette), Brandi Glanville (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), Cirie Fields (Survivor), Cody Calafiore (Big Brother), Kate Chastain (Below Deck), Kyle Cooke (Summer House), Rachel Reilly (Big Brother), Reza Farahan (Shahs of Sunset), Ryan Lochte (Olympian), and Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick (Survivor).
Additional contestants included Christian De La Torre (Veteran & Van Life Influencer), Michael Davidson (DMV Office Manager), Andie Thurmond (Director of Music Services), Quentin Jiles (Political Analyst), Shelbe Rodriguez (Public Affairs Manager), Geraldine Moreno (Actor), Robert “Bam” Nieves (Tech Sales Executive), Anjelica Conti (Hair Stylist), Azra Valani (Yoga Instructor), and Amanda Clark (Emergency Room Nurse).
Who won The Traitors Season 1?
Cirie Fields, who cut her teeth charming and manipulating her fellow contestants on Survivor, won The Traitors Season 1 by using her greatest asset: patience.
You can catch up on The Traitors Season 1 before the Season 2 premiere exclusively on Peacock.
A host of well-known rugby players, footballers, boxers and reality TV stars are among the laundry list of celebrities heading to Neath next month to take part in a charity football match. Organised by Swansea resident Dan Richards and Love Island’s Jake Cornish, the aptly-named ‘Celebrity Football Match’ will take place on October 1 and will see more than 30 celebs dust off their football boots and take to the field at The Gnoll sports ground in Neath.
The event aims to raise awareness and funds for the Swansea Veterans Hub, a community interest company which supports local veterans with their mental health and wellbeing. It is the third celebrity football match Dan has organised, coming after a brilliant event in 2019 in memory of Swansea City fan and dad-of-one Mitchell Powell, who sadly died after he went into cardiac arrest while undergoing double heart valve replacement surgery, and a popular ‘Sellebrity Soccer’ game in memory of Call Centre star Nev Wilshire last May.
“In 2020, in lockdown, I started doing runs for charity. I’d share my progress on social media and raised money for the British Heart Foundation,” ,” Dan explained. “Jake Woods, the actor from EastEnders, found out about it and he and Danny Dyer actually phoned me – it was so funny because when they rung me I thought it was the boys [my friends] just pranking me, but it was actually Jake and Danny. They said they wanted to get involved and we came up with the idea of a charity football match. The first one in 2019 was in memory of Mitchell Powell, then I organised another one last year.” For the latest Neath Port Talbot news, sign up to our newsletter here

At the time of the event in memory of Mitchell Powell, Dan said: “I play football in the local leagues in Swansea and Mitchell was heavily involved with Maltsters Sports AFC. I wasn’t friends with him, but I played against his team and often saw him stood on the side-lines. Over the last couple of months, we’ve done lots of charity events for Mitchell’s family. I’m running the London and Florida marathons to help raise money in his memory but I also thought I would like to organise a charity football match.
“I got in touch with Sellebrity Soccer who have helped us and they said a number of celebrities would be keen to be involved because they have connections to heart charities. Mitchell raised so much money for the British Heart Foundation and other charities. It was remarkable what he did and he always kept a smile on his face even with all he went through. I always believe in giving back and I knew we had to keep Mitchell’s legacy going. Hopefully it will live on and he can continue to help people even though he’s no longer here.”
This year’s event is being held in aid of Swansea Veterans Hub as Dan and business partner Jake Cornish wanted to support a local charity which helps veterans with their mental health. “My father used to be in the army and he came back here when I was 12 or 13 – I just saw how much being in the army affected him and his mental health,” Dan said.
“And one of my best mates did two tours in Afghan and Iraq and he just wasn’t the same person when he came home.. He’s okay now, because of the support he’s had, but he just wasn’t the same when he came home – he’d obviously seen some stuff and some of it he couldn’t even tell us about. So I chose this charity as they support veterans with their mental health and I could see how important that support is.”
Explaining how he’s managed to get so many great names to sign up to the event (scroll down for the full list), Dan added: “This year I’ve started a company with Jake Cornish from Love Island and so when we were first talking about having another celebrity football match, he was able to use his contacts to invite the celebrities to come. A lot of the celebrities coming do a lot to support veterans’ charities so when we told them that this was to raise money for a charity supporting veterans they were really happy to get involved.”
“Gerwyn Price, the darts player, used to play rugby for Neath so we’ve got him as one of our team captains, and the other team captain will be rugby player James Hook. The other celebrities will make up the teams,” he added.

John Verzi spent six decades amassing 25,000 autographs and over 12,000 photos of celebrities.
After his death in 2018, his collection of photographs sold at auction for over $140,000.
The Verzi collection has hundreds of never-before-seen photographs of celebrities.
John Verzi spent decades photographing everyone from A-list Hollywood celebrities to lesser-known niche stars.
His private collection is now being prepared for the public to view at the Los Angeles Public Library.
After his death in 2018, Verzi’s exclusive photos bounced among collectors and auction houses before it found its permanent home at the central branch of the LAPL in Downtown Los Angeles. The library bid over $140,000 for the collection.
Verzi was born in Santa Clara County, California, and spent much of his adult years in San Francisco and Los Angeles. He was not a paparazzi and was not, by any official accounts, a professional photographer, but he was taken with the world of Hollywood.
While the collection is still being scanned and studied, the LAPL has granted Insider access to some never-before-seen photos from the collection.
John Verzi took photos of celebrities across Los Angeles and even obtained press credentials to attend carpet events.
Christina Rice, the senior librarian at the Los Angeles Public Library associated with the photo collection, said that Verzi had a friend at a film publication in the 1960s who helped him gain the necessary credentials.
Los Angeles librarians have used their collective knowledge and archival resources to determine locations and possible events some of the celebrities might be attending in Verzi’s photos.
But not all of Verzi’s photos were taken at events.
Some were taken on a whim, like this photo of Elvis in the backseat of his car as he leaves a movie studio.
Some of Verzi’s photos feature celebrities at the Hollywood unemployment office — a frequent stop for stars who were in between jobs.
Verzi would frequent the Hollywood unemployment office in his search for celebrities.
Verzi also had a penchant for finding stars attending dinner parties throughout Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
All of the photographs in the Verzi collection are in color, which is one of the unique factors that sets his collection apart from others taken around the same time.
Of the 4 million photos in the Los Angeles Public Library’s collection, a majority of them are black and white, Rice said.
The fact that Verzi’s photos are in color and dated aids the librarians in understanding the context around them.
Some photos in the Verzi collection offer one-of-a-kind glimpses of celebrities, like Marilyn Monroe going to a dinner party in Los Angeles.
This photo of Marilyn Monroe getting in her car after attending a dinner party at Romanoff’s is the only one that exists.
“There’s no other known photos of her at this event. It’s known she went to this event, but nobody else photographed her,” Rice said. “So it is not only is it one-of-a-kind Marilyn image, but it’s truly one-of-a-kind that nobody else photographed her at this event as far as we know.”
Verzi didn’t only focus on movie stars. He collected photographs of musicians, models, Broadway stars, and amateur adult film stars as well.
One of the photos in the Verzi collection is of Jim Morrison outside of a theater. Thanks to Verzi’s handwritten dating, Los Angeles librarians have been able to determine that Morrison was attending the play, “The Beard.”
The play centers around a fictional encounter between the famous outlaw, Billy the Kid, and the 1930s actress, Jean Harlow. The two communicate with each other with four-letter expletives, and the play culminates in a scene of simulated intercourse between the two.
The play was considered so controversial that it only ran for a couple of weeks and the actors in it were arrested frequently.
Verzi once photographed 300 celebrities in an 11-month span between 1960 and 1961, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Verzi was known to be reclusive at moments and not easy to get along with.
In one instance, actress Sylvia Sidney reportedly said, “Get that man out of here,” upon seeing Verzi.
Verzi continued taking photos of a new generation of up-and-coming stars through the 1970s and 1980s.
The LA Times reported Verzi moved to Las Vegas in 1989, where he lived in a trailer until he died in 2018.
Verzi’s collection of a lifetime of photographs sold for $144,000 to the LAPL.
To the librarians who found and bid on the collection, it’s worth every penny. The collection gathers photos that might not exist anywhere else, and many of the photos themselves add new visual context to history.
“To have such incredible snapshots of time that might not exist elsewhere,” Rice said, “I don’t know that you can really put a price on it.”
Now that the collection is being digitized, librarians at the LAPL hope that the images can be useful to the public.
The Verzi collection displays a different view of celebrities and stars in Hollywood in the 60s.
His photos are those of an avid fan and collector and contextualize an otherwise inaccessible lifestyle.
“It definitely tells a story of what’s going on in the city and that our entertainment industry isn’t just the Academy Awards — sometimes it’s just people hanging out at restaurants or collecting unemployment,” Rice said. “So it kind of tells a fuller story of what it is to be in the entertainment industry in our city.”
