Peru: Telemundo takes Laura Bozzo off the air in the U.S.


Living in Peru
Israel J. Ruiz



Laura Bozzo, a Peruvian talk show host that has caused controversy and had several run-ins with the law, had her show Laura en Accion taken off the air in the United States.

The show was canceled by the American television network Telemundo last Tuesday, El Comercio daily reported.

According to the daily, the world's second-largest Spanish-language content producer took the show off the air because of its low ratings.

Laura en Accion, which was canceled by the Peruvian network América Televisión in March 2008, was the cause of controversy for allegedly involving minors in the program illegally.

The show's authenticity was questioned and it was believed that fake cases of family sex violence were presented.

Because of regular fights on the show and the nature of its content, it has been compared to a Peruvian version of the Jerry Springer Show, an American English-language talk show.

Upon the announcement that Laura's program would be canceled, journalists and media in Peru demonstrated to be happy with the decision and thanked Telemundo.

Thank you for taking her off the air.  She damaged how the world looks at Peruvian people.  Now many think we are cheaters and the worst people ever.  Yes, there are some problems, like in any other country, but there is no reason to show them off like that.  And I read that many of the cases are fake and they pay people money to be in the show, and of course Peru is not a country that is economically well off, so money is welcomed no matter what they have to say on tv.

LaughingGood, really, thanks for talking her off.

She doesn't deserve to be called peruvian, she embarrassed us with all her theater, fake cases, humiliating people that for a couple soles did ridiculous things.

The result of this is that we are seen like cheap and fake people in the world. Honestly she is a shame for our country, our beautiful, honorable and respectable and very, very friendly PERU.Smile

I enjoyed all of her staged fist fights! Chairs being thrown around, kicking, scratching, clawing, spitting, tearing off cloths, and on, and on, and on. Jiffy Pop Pop Corn made a small fortune off of my house at one time!!

# San Jacinto 1836 says :

Jiffy POP? Come on dude. If your going to pop corn, get the good stuff. Act II is way better. Time Warner had her on every night in Houston on SUR. Comcast bought out Warner & took away ALL the Peruvian shows and news to cater to the Mexicans with Mexican shows. You folks think Laura was bad? Try a dose of the Mexican stuff. The pop corn popping will really slow down then.

They used to have Laura shows in Colombian Tv.,  and I was very embarrased when colombians asked me, why all people in Peru did not have teeth and they very ugly and very poor ( Lets thank Laura for this) and also, the famous "Senorita Laura", many people in USA make fun of peruvians, calling them "Senorita Laura"

Grow up nationalists...
Every country has its shared of uneducated trash
and Peru is no different.
...
In fact Peru has a larger percentage that most countries
because of poverty and racism.

# David says :
May 6, 2008 [ 23:07 ]

I have to disagree with you. Of 86 of the poorest countries, there are 56 that have a larger percentage of the population living below the poverty level then Peru.

So yes every country has it's share of uneducated trash. But Peru by percentage does not have more due to poverty. The racism I cannot attest to.

# Cecilia S. says :
May 6, 2008 [ 23:22 ]

Racism is so bad in Peru that it is a common insult (even among family members) to call someone Indian or Black or say that he has more of such ancestors in his blood even when both people are mixed (mestizo) and obviously have such ancestors...

 

# Devoted Fan says :
May 7, 2008 [ 10:51 ]

Does anyone know if there will be a release of her shows on a DVD Box Set? If so pass the info this way because I would be the first in line to buy it. Peru is a beautiful country and so are its people. Any body with more than one brain cell knows that she did not speak for the whole country. If this were the case, then Jerry Springer, Morton Downey, & Okra Wimpfre wrote the book for USA. Laura had a good show I thought.

# One-eyed bandit says :

If you're in Lima, Polvos Azules is your best bet. I'm sure they have every one of her shows. If they don't, rest assured they'll get it for you.

Glad to see that this trash was taken off the air.  Even more so that people decided to stop watching it and caused such low ratings.

In many parts of the US when latinos hear the word Peru, they immediately bring up Laura's show because that's all they know of Peru.  They remember the drama aad horrible conditions and terrible way it shows Peruvians treating each other.  Living like animals.

# InkaYupanqui says :

TO ALL PERUANOS WHO WERE 'EMBARRASSED' BY THE LAURA EN AMERICA SHOW:

You CRY about how Laura Bozzo ruined your image in the world; YOU cry about how WE PERUVIANS and PERU is VIEWED so BADLY by the WORLD because of this pathetic TV SHOW.

ATTENTION:   YOU PEOPLE are the ones who need to GROW UP!!!!!!!

YOUR WINING AND B******* IS WHAT IS PATHETIC.  THAT IS WHAT IS CONTRIBUTING TO THIS MALAISE OF A BAD REPUTATION..... IT IS Y-O-U.

WHY?  BECAUSE I AM VERY PROUD OF MY COUNTRY AND WE EDUCATED PEOPLE (EDUCATED PERUVIANS AND EDUCATED CITIZENS OF THE REST OF THE WORLD) KNOW THAT PERU IS ONE OF THE RICHEST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD IN CULTURE, ARCHEOLOGY, ECOLOGY, ART, MUSIC, CUISINE, GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, AND BEAUTY IN EVERY ASPECT, FROM THE AMAZON TO THE ANDES, FROM NAZCA TO THE IMPERIAL CITY OF CUSCO, FROM  THE WORLD'S DEEPEST COLCA CANYON TO THE WORLD'S HIGHEST NAVIGABLE LAKE TITICACA.......... FOOD: THE BEST CUISINE IN THE AMERICAS, ETC, ETC, ETC.

HOW DARE YOU ALLOW YOUR SELF-ESTEEM AND NATIONAL PRIDE TO BE AFFECTED BY FEEDBACK OF IGNORANT PEOPLE WHO KNOW NOTHING OUTSIDE OF THEIR TELEVISION BOX.  THESE PEOPLE EITHER HAVE A 2-WATT BRAIN CELL, NEVER VISITED PERU, OR ARE JEALOUS OF NOT BEING ABLE TO CALL IT THEIRS AND WANT TO DEFAMATE IT.

STOP THE IGNORANCE AND MALICE OF THESE PEOPLE AND STOP TALKING ABOUT LAURA BOZZO, BECAUSE SHE IS NOT THE CATALOG OF PERU, NOR OUR AMBASSADOR, AND ALREADY DEFEATED.

STOP TALKING ABOUT HER AND HER DEAD SHOW, AND THE WORLD WILL ALSO FORGET IT SOON.  PERU IS ON IT'S WAY UP, IN MANY WAYS.  STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THAT WOMAN.... AND SHE WILL SOON BE FORGOTTEN. 

# Splaktar says :

All caps is not appreciated.  Are you unable to express yourself without 'yelling'?  And you are telling people to grow up?

# David says :
May 20, 2008 [ 11:20 ]

InkaYupanqui, please, it is not necessary to YELL! This thread would be long forgotten except another person that finds it necessary to yell, IRMADAVILA, brought it back up again.

Yes the show in question only gave a slanted view of Peru much like the Jerry Springer show here in the States. But garbage in garbage out is what you get. It would be much nicer to see a show based in/on Peru that expressed the positives of Peru.

Your comments are always welcome, but please do not YELL!

David

Splaktar:

FIRST OF ALL, I WAS NOT YELLING, IF I GOT A LITTLE AGRESSIVE ON THE KEYBOARD, AND CHOSE TO BOLD LETTERS, THAT IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT.  WE ARE NOT IN A VERBAL CONVERSATION.  WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH GROWING UP?  
 
THIS IS A DEMOCRATIC BLOG AND ANYONE THAT WRITES DIFFERENT THAN YOU SHOULD NEED NOT BE CRITICIZED.  YOU DID NOT EVEN CONTRIBUTE ANYTHING TO YOUR LAST POST BUT TO ASSUME ON SOMEONE YOU DO NOT KNOW.

IT IS YOU WHO NEEDS TO GROW UP, APARENTLY. 

# mericorps says :

Inkayupanqui,

I am not taking issue one way or another on the topic here as I personally believe if you do not like a tv show, dont watch it and dont decide for me what is good or not...

But I have to take issue with something you said.

You said first that this is a democratic blog, then you said anyone that writes different than you should need NOT be criticized.

If you can not critize, then what is democratic about this blog?

# Anonymous Dave says :

I am not Peruvian but I have many friends that I have much love for here in the states that are Peruvian. Just because a person enjoys a TV show doesnt mean that because of that show their perception of the people on it apply to the country as a whole. That only shows that you are quite ignorant to believe everything you see on TV. Just like someone else mentioned if people of other countries watched Jerry Springer we here in the states must be a bunch of hill billy red necks that came to town in a wagon. She just like Jerry Springer was out to make money but now and days who isn't??? I am not saying its right but to each its own....... I did enjoy the show and hate to see it cancelled....... I am sure she did help some of those people on the show....atleast I hope she did. Many of her fans are heart broken and hope she is well.......

So sorry to read all this negativity about Laura Bozzo's show. As a native New Yorker I never looked at the show to compare Peru's people any less than human. I viewed it in a diffrent light as
justice for the sexually abused just like I was many years ago. I wished that someone spoke out for me. It is a real shame that if the producers of this show conducted themselves to produce lies. The loss is for the poor who desperately needed help. I was proudest of the fact that people where being helped and feed and grant it I am not Peruvian, it moved me that someone was doing something to help those people in need. I am not giving up on the poor in Peru. I hope something can be salvaged out of this mess with Luara. Lets keep our minds open in helping those in need. I am not looking for a saint but and giving person who will give there life in helping in anyway to our poor people.

# Christmas says :

This is my opinion and everybody is entitled to their opinion too. But I saw Laura in a different way. In a way that she was defending her people. I never thought any less of Peru or the people. There is problems all around the world and we can't just judge her. Who are we to judge her. All i know is that she did good work and that I enjoyed her work. Just becuase "Maury show" has maternity test and women don't know who the father is, doesn't mean that "we" american women are like that. Business is entertainment and also helping people. So you guys have opinions and I have mine and I respect all of them.

# Erich_Peru says :
November 20, 2008 [ 10:47 ]

Christmas,

It is obvious you are speaking out of ignorance.  First of all because you IGNORE the FACT that she EXPLOITS MINORS in order to ENTERTAIN YOU!

Many poor minors resort to being labeled on international TV as rape victims, whores, sluts, and other terms.... all because Laura Bozzo offered them $$money$$ in order to pretend and act this way in front of the camara.

This is BIG BUSINESS for Laura Bozzo and Telemundo.

How can you say otherwise???  How can you support this???

Christmas:  YOU ARE ONE IGNORANT TELEVISION JUNKIE.

I'm soooooo but soooo happy that Laura Bozo is not on air that this should have happened long time ago. I think I'm gonna celebrate!
Because of her, peruvians got "stereotypes" around the world. Things that I don't even want to name them, because it pisses me off.
She took advantage of the poor to exploited their problems to make millions. She even faked "cases" to create drama that didn't even existed.
I've met some people from south america who watched Peruvian channels (Perubolica) and they asked me these things:
- Do all peruvians have dental problems?
- Do all peruvians need a "carrito sanguchero"?
- Do all peruvians are that poor?
She should pay for the bad image she has done to Peru.
VIVA EL PERU!

Julio G:


I agree about celebrating for Bozzo's demise.

However, it is shallow to care about what Sitcom-educated ignorant people think. 

Sitcom Television = Idiot Box


Why do you care about what they think? 

The people you mention which stereotype peruvians based on this (Jerry Springer-type of) show are just that = POOR IGNORANT IDIOTS.


WHAT KIND OF A HUMAN BEING GETS THEIR EDUCATION ABOUT A MAJOR HISTORICAL NATION (Peru)....FROM ....."laura en america".


Julio G: 

I don't know what kind of friends you have, but the next time they ask you those questions, you need to tell them: "GET EDUCATED!!!"

Dear All, It is true that Laura Bozzo deteriorated the image about Peruvians and Latin Americans (in general), there was no question that many well educated people didn’t believe or pay attention to this program.  Paid   guest, fake cases to to feed the morbid minds of some people, was obvious in her programs (sorry for those that use their time, electricity to see this Junk).  Like in Jerry Springer Show (USA, not necessarily all Americans are Racist or White Trash or every Afro-American person is a delinquent.  Let’s not be afraid to print or verbalize and what's more “let’s stop” people like Ms. Bozzo that with lies have dishonestly tried to get fame at the expense of defamation of her own people.Good luck to her and all of you.

 I am NOT a saint, I am NOT witout sin...So, I will not throw stones to Laura
Some stupid Peruvians are ashamed of the "Teethless Peruvians" shown in Laura's shows...Well, welcome to Peru...many of our fellow Peruvians are malnourished, poor, ignorant and hungry...We should not be ashamed of our own people...
Of course, there are also hard-working, educated Peruvians too...(I think I am one of those)...but I never felt ashamed of Laura's show...I think there were certain good things about her...Laura, an educated woman, truly did care for the poor...I thank her for that..
I have all my teeth complete...I eat well...I am glad Laura did care for the poor Peruvians..no else did...Maybe she did include some corrupt people in her show; maybe she became a bit corrupt herself, and perhaps sometimes she was a bit nasty...but no one else cared for the poor Peruvians...I know I personally didn't do anything for poor Peruvians...So, I will not throw the first stone to Laura...I like her after all,

Jaime Bayly pays the people who she helped to turn on her because she is more popular and successful. If her show was fake he and everyone else would've have attack her years ago. But they didnt until they try to destroy her reputatuion as a nice person to get tvratings for themselves. Nobody watch those fake news reporters until they started making her look bad.

When ever I've had someone from another Latin coutry bring up Laura Bozo when Peru is mentioned I do the following:

1st -  I respond by asking "you mean to tell me that you actually beleive that the stuff on that show was real??? "How naive can you be???" LOL

2nd - I then ask "so do you believe that everything on Jerry Springer is also real and that all Americans are like the people that appear on Jerry Springer"???

By that point they usually shut up really quick so as not to look even more foolish than they already are for thinking that the Laura Bozo show represents Peru. Wink

Richard,

This is a discussion about Peru, not about the USA, perhaps that is why we are not discussing Television from the USA.

TV, national or international, reflecting Peru is fair game, TV shows made in the USA and shown in the USA have no relevance to this discussion.

I watched Laura evrytime the show was on.I was disappointed when it was cancelled.But like Laura is fond of saying,"let those who hate her keep talking she will continue to keep her head up." If she had done wrong she would not have the guts to keep fighting.Telefotura has picked up the show.6pm Mon.-Fri. Best of luck to you Laura.

# karen says :

I do not like Laura,s tyle I don't like Jerry either but if peruvians look bad around the world is not because Laura is because peruvians. I am from Peru but I have been in several countries in the world so far I have to admit that most people in my country are racist, uneducated, stupid, ignorant, rude, etc in comparasion with other thrid world countries. I went to a good school in Lima but it was not until I moved to another country that I relized how wrong we peruvians are taught  in relationship with the world, for ex. I did not know that there were car lanes on the street, peruvians just drive wherever they felt like it. Most parents teach their kids to pee in the streets, if somebody forgot something then it is yours (stealing), as long as you pass on the test you are good, cheat, lie, be smart (vut in front of lines to be the first), forget the traffic lights unless there is  cop, etc.
sorry for my english
