Forget gluten-free diets and kabbalah: Consciously uncoupling was the thing to do in Hollywood this year.

Yeah, I'm looking at you, Selena and Justin!
I look to celebs for just about everything: fashion, trends, and yes, even tattoos. I'm thinking about getting my first tattoo sometime before the end of the year and so, I've been taking notes from some of the most inked celebs out there. I've learned a lot, to say the least.

Second, I learned you should get a tattoo of something meaningful, and possibly culturally significant. And lastly, these 10 Latino celebs taught me that no matter what you get inked on your body, it'll become a part of you. Not just your body, but it'll become a part of your legacy.

Paulina Rubio is known for having her share of enemies in the biz, and Lucero may be her next rival. La Chica Dorada's contract as a coach on La Voz Kids was not renewed and rumor has it that Lucero may be to blame. According to E!

The View may have hired its first Latina cast mate ever, and I couldn't be happier! It's about dang time. According to reports, producers at The View plan on replacing ousted Jenny McCarthy with October Gonzalez, a relatively unknown football wife. Wow, talk about a ballsy move.
Though she's not really well-known, a show insider reveals Gonzalez was a natural pick. She "didn't audition. She was herself. She was the real deal," according to sources. Considering the fact that media vets such like political analyst Ana Navarro and King of Queens star Leah Remini had to audition, that's really saying something.
