El Gordo y la Flaca (literal translation: The Fat Man and the Skinny Woman) is an American Spanish-language entertainment news show.


El Gordo y La Flaca first aired on September 21, 1998, hosted by Raúl De Molina, El Gordo, multiple Emmy award winner for his contribution as co host of this show.[1] and Lili Estefan, La Flaca. Estefan is the niece of music mogul and producer Emilio Estefan, the husband of singer/songwriter Gloria Estefan. She is also a Cuban model and show host for "El Gordo y La Flaca."[2]

The show combines interviews with actors, musicians, and other celebrities with reports on their comings and goings.The show appears weekdays on the Spanish-language television network Univisión. It is filmed in the network's studios in Miami, Florida.[3]

On December 15, 2006, as a send-off homage to Rebelde, El Gordo y la Flaca opened with the cast dressed in Elite Way school uniforms, with Lili Estefan as Mía Colucci and Raúl De Molina as Giovanni Méndez (complete in dyed orange/red hair), while doing a parody to the show's opening theme, Rebelde. It is notable that the homage was pre-recorded, as Raúl De Molina did not appear on the show on the day when Rebelde was shown for the final time in the United States.[citation needed]
