Roberto Gómez Bolaños ‘Chespirito’ Dies: Mexican Legend Dead At 85

Friday, November 28th, 2014


Roberto Gómez Bolaños is a famous Mexican writer and actor known worldwide mainly for his characters “El Chavo del 8” and “El Chapulín Colorado.” He was born in Mexico City in 1929 and studied engineering but never worked in that field. He found his passion for writing screenplays and scripts for television and radio with his work being featured in shows like “Cómicos y Canciones” and “El Estudio De Pedro Vargas.” It was around this same time where he gained his nickname of “Chespirito” when director Agustín P. Delgado said he was a “Little Shakespeare” or “Shakespearito.” In 1968 he signed a contract with Televisión Independiente de México where he was given a Saturday afternoon timeslot to expose his talent in sketches and comedy. This timeframe proved to be so popular the network moved him to Monday night and the legend was born.

“El Chavo del 8” has been his most recognized character where he plays a homeless kid that lives in a barrel in the middle of an apartment complex. The white humor and the hilarious neighbors like La Chilindrina, Don Ramón, Doña Florinda, Quico, Jaimito El Cartero and La Bruja Del 71 are engraved not only in Mexican culture but throughout Latin America. The show ran for 25 years but reruns are continuously broadcasted with great ratings. In recent years and to revive the “El Chavo” legacy and animated series was created that proved to be successful and has subsequently spawned a line of toys and most recently a go-kart video game.

Little Rock tress expert appears on ‘MTV Made’

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Every once in a while, a reality show comes along that truly touches the soul. We’ve seen makeover shows come and go and quite often, they have such a superficial theme to them. Well, not with MTV Made.

Shalita Heard, owner and proprietor of Iconique Studio, is accustomed to breathing new life into her clients. Heard comes alive when she speaks of how a simple makeover has the possibility to being the key to a life altering event. You can just tell that she not only loves adding extensions to make her clients gorgeous – Heard lives for it.

Last week’s episode of MTV Made featured Mackenzie, a young lady of bi-racial ethnicity whose story is as touching as it is important to be broadcast. Heard was brought in to help the young lady, a Harrison, Arkansas resident. Not only did Heard provide assistance to her – she helped completely make over this beautiful young female. In this episode of MTV Made, the show made Mackenzie over into a cheerleader.

Ask any of Shalita Heard’s clients and they will tell you she is a force to be reckoned with and someone you definitely want on your team, when preparing to look and feel beautiful. We caught up with Shalita just before the show aired – here’s her it went down:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell us what services were performed on Mackenzie.

SHALITA HEARD: Mackenzie is biracial, so I gave her a keratin treatment to control her curly hair. Mackenzie was raised by a Caucasian family and searched for a solution to her hair issues. I straightened her hair and helped her to control the curl. I also colored her hair and sewed-in extensions.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: That is great that you were able to help the young lady. Tell us what new ventures you’re involved in and what we can expect.

SHALITA HEARD: Well, I have a new hairline that launched in October of 2011. It’s called Phenomenal Hair by Shalita Heard.  I’ve been doing hair for over 19 years, and my clientele includes celebrities whose jobs include radio show host, TV news anchors, politicians, and well known businesswomen.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What interesting tidbits can you tell us about the show?

SHALITA HEARD: The show was filmed in Harrison, Arkansas, an area known in the past for KKK  activity. Mackenzie was adopted by an older white couple who moved her to Harrison when she was young. The story is a very touching one.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How much excitement do you see from your clients when you use extension?

SHALITA HEARD: My clients find them exciting. Some come for fashion, but I also do replacement of hair for chemo patients undergoing cancer treatments, in addition to working with those suffering from Alopecia, Psoriasis, Lupus, and other diseases.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Approximately how long does it take you to finish up with a client?

SHALITA HEARD: It takes about 2 hours for sew-in extensions, depending on the services being provided.


EDITOR’S NOTE: Ms. Heard is an expert in her field, who has shown time and time again that she is the best at providing beautiful creations that not only meet her clients’ expectation – it exceeds them each and every time. Follow Ms. Heard on Twitter: Visit Ms. Heard’s website:
