Cheese of the Week

Feliz CumpleaƱos to Charo! The original Cuchi-Cuchi girl (eat your heart out, Shakira) is 67 years old today. A staple on the '70s telly, she was a frequent celeb on Hollywood Squares and a repeat passenger on my beloved Love Boat.

Pssst....she's not just shake, shimmy and accent -- she is one hell of a classical guitarist. And was once married to Xavier Cugat.

All that aside, my favorite Charo is when she's in full cuchi-cuchi mode. So here she is!

Oh, I so loved Charo when I was a little girl! I used to shake my little booty along with her.

She is one of a kind -- I always got very excited when her happy face appeared in the Guest Star credits of The Love Boat -- that was the sign of a great episode.
