However, in 1998, her career took off internationally when she was given the opportunity to co-host Univision's show Despierta America alongside Raul Gonzalez, Fernando Arau, Ana Maria Canseco, Neyda Sandoval and occasional host Samy, the famous Cuban hair-dresser and television personality. After divorcing Trucco, she has remained single, and she says she wants to dedicate her free time to her kids only.
Her first daughter is now a chef who has been on Despierta America.
