|"I'm totally animal-oriented," Gloria Estefan has confessed.|
"I've got nine dogs, eight birds, turtles, fish and I had wallabies at one point," confessed Gloria Estevan during a recent interview.
Well, that settled the matter. I knew that Gloria was going to be at The Grove (the high end shopping center in Los Angeles) promoting her new dance music album, "Miss Little Havana" the first English recording in several years, and I had to be there.

We got there in time to catch "E"'s Mario Lopez (he sure has some great dimples!) interviewing Gloria about her new album and also had the chance to visit with her husband, Emilio, famous music producer and co-founder of the Miami Sound Machine.
Emilio and I really bonded and he introduced me to the staff of the "E" show.
Did you know that Gloria has written two children's books? "The Magically Mysterious Adventures of Noelle the Bulldog"(2005) and Noelle's Treasure Tales (2006) about her rescue bulldog that she adopted from Colombia
"I had gotten her for my son, who wanted a bulldog. She would have died had she stayed (in Colombia). So I say I saved her life, she changed mine. She's an amazing dog and really inspired everything that's in this book.
Gloria told me "I'm working on another Noelle the Bulldog book."
Wow! I'm thinking that a Phoebe R. and Noelle book would be a great idea....
