Gloria Estefan's husband has partnered with 20th Television to executive produce a Latino-themed drama series, as the company's chairmen explained:
Mexican consumers have spoken, and their demands have been heard!
Mexico is Latin America’s second-largest apparel market, worth a whopping $5 billion in imports, but the country has been plagued by an extremely high merchandise return rate, costing the retail industry MILLIONS in loses per year.
As it turns out, the reason behind Mexican consumers returning merchandise by the droves, lies in the the fact that the European sizes found in most stores, quite simply don't fit the average Mexican.
This reason was confirmed by a team of retailers who recently conducted a survey hoping to find the "average" size of consumers across 14 major regions.
According to the study:
The average Mexican female in 18 to 25 age range is 5 feet 2 inches, tall and weigh 138 pounds, while Men of the same age range average out at 5 feet 5 inches, tall, with a weight of 170 pounds.
Armed with the new information, the retailers hope to help clothing manufacturers create a “Mexican Mold” for the average local consumer, ultimately saving an estimated $400 million by 2017 in merchandise-returns.
What do you think about this!? Should manufacturers start making region specific sizes???

Rosario Dawson, co-founder of Voto Latino, says the following on Voto Latino:
She may not be involved with the Lohan family anymore, but she sure is still acting like she is!
Michael Lohan's ex-girlfriend, Kate Major, has been charged with three counts of battery, one count of resisting arrest and one count of disorderly intoxication, after being arrested on January 14th after drunkenly beating up a Latino couple in Florida, and then calling the arresting officer a "fat f*ck!"
How classy of her!
So classy in fact, that she has landed herself a sweet four year vacation behind bars, as she's been convicted on all counts!
Geesh. Somebody put this gurl away so we don't have to deal with hearing about her anymore!
The Mayor of East Haven, Connecticut is as close as we're going to get to a real life Michael Scott from The Office.
He stumbles through the interview and thinks he's being harmless when he says wildly offensive things, like supporting the Latino community by going home and making tacos.
It's almost as if he has no idea that saying something like is absurdly wrong!
Check out the video interview above!
