#Women2Watch: Latina Breaking Ground at SNL

Saturday Night Live has added a new cast member, and she is a Latina! Her name is Melissa Villaseñor. What could be hipper than to break through the comedy holy grail of glass ceilings? I almost spit out my cocktail watching Melissa’s latest J-Lo impersonation video on Instagram. She refers to her former husband as “#skinnybonesjones, but don’t tell him he would cry, because he cried a lot on my fur coats”. She is a stand-up comedienne, graphic artist, musician, and crazy funny impressionist. @melissavcomedy

HipLatina has written about Aida, Cristela, and Gina. In the spirit of women2watch Wednesday we are excited to see the Latinas on the list.
