Yahoo! en Español Presents “Madres De Hoy” for Latinas
Yahoo! en Español has launched “Madres de Hoy,” a new site featuring articles, blogs, videos and other original content for the ultimate Latina mom.
“Madres de Hoy” premiered two new video series, comedy series Casi Perfecta and Latina talk show Café con Tacones, available at http://es-us.mujer.yahoo.com/madres-de-hoy.
Casi Perfecta is a comedy series starring Sonia, a working mother of two who struggles to balance her modern life with the traditional mold of the perfect housewife.

To top things off, her mother-in-law has recently moved in and continually puts her skills as a mother and housewife to the test. Casi Perfecta offers a light and funny perspective on the challenges that many modern Latina moms face daily, says Yahoo!.
Café con Tacones presents a weekly shot of news, opinion and fun. The show features four distinct personalities who share their unfiltered and unapologetic views. Celebrities and experts will join the Latina coffee klatch to add their perspective on the week’s news and the hottest topics of the day.

Hosts Carolina Buia (author of Latin Chic and former national correspondent for Telemundo), Carleth Keys (NY1 Noticias anchor) and Yahoo!’s own Trina Bardusco will discuss everything from current events, parenting, home décor, healthy living and other women’s lifestyle topics — from a Latina woman’s point of view.
The first few episodes will feature a star-studded guest list including Isolda Peguero, award-winning national correspondent for Telemundo; Denise Bidot, top plus-size model; Latina comedian Sara Contreras; Primer Impacto’s Nayeli Chavez; and Flor de Maria Rivera, fashion blogger and contributor to Cosmopolitan for Latinas.
