Barrera v. Gomez

For all you Wizards of Waverly Place fans out there, this weeks competition is sure to be a good one: Theresa Russo (actress Maria Canals Barrera) takes on hija Alex Russo (Selena Gomez).

Barrera v. Gomez

For starters, Maria Canals Barrera is legal. Born September 28, 1966 in Miama, Florida, she is officially an American citizen! (Cue Sarah Palin speech on strengthening borders and lynching immigrants.) Being the Disney channel fanatic that I am, I've had my eye on the mom from Wizards of Waverly Place for quite some time now. And while my peers were anxiously awaiting the 18th birthday of Selena Gomez, I was anxiously awaiting my 18th birthday so I would finally be a legal specimen for this Cuban Cougar. Some may not be convinced that a 43 year old mother-of-two could be as beautiful and glamorous as her 18 year old counter part (see below), but may I submit three pieces of evidence in her defense: 1) Barrera has Twitter. 2) Barerra has Facebook. 3) Barerra is really, really ridiculously good looking.

For starters, Selena Gomez is legal. Born July 22, 1992, she is officially 18 years old! She is well known for her role on the hit Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place and the catchy song ‘Naturally’ that we are privileged to hear over the radio on the regular. Not only that, she has starred in four movies and was in Barney and Friends as a child. No one needs to worry, just because she is a successful child star doensn't mean she will be turning into Britney Spears (i.e. slutty, crazy, shaved head) anytime soon; Gomez began wearing a purity ring when she was 12 years old. I love the way she knows who she is; to me that’s exciting. Selena also shows she cares by being and active supporter of UNICEF, has rescued five dogs and describes herself as a "huge animal lover".

  1. So I agree that Barrera is a classy, beautiful woman I have to choose Selena because that kid is gorgeous. She also always has great hair and I envy her for that!

  2. Jims, you made me LOL. Both of these ladies are smokin'!

  3. LOL! James...You can tell that it's you that wrote the paragraph about Maria Barerra.

    Take care Iker
