So Ruth and myself were watching Colbert the other day and he mentioned how the girl in the logo for Chiquita banana was attractive, "she has a recognizable bust line" he concluded. So we were driving around and I remembered that there were live action commercials with a Chiquita girl, but we couldn't remember the person it was. Ruth thought it might be a "blond woman..." and i blurted out "not Charo". Which brings me to the ridiculous topic of this entry - What did Charo
? I mean she just seemed to "pop up" everywhere when I was a kid.
You'd be innocently sitting there watching One Day at a Time
or Three's Company
or The Love Boat
or Fantasy Island
and there would be a knock on the door and BAM it was Charo! Everybody loved Charo! It was just really odd now that I think about it.
So answer me this question - What did Charo ever really do?
I leave you with this video of Charo "coochie coochie"- and a quick notation that I always found the raisin girl pretty hot in that girl next door kinda way.
Charo is actually an incredibly talented woman. She is among the best classical guitarists (studied with Segovia and others while growing up in Spain), she can sing, and she's very funny and smart - no dumb blonde, even though a big part of her routine was to make fun of her mangled English. You can buy CDs of her guitar music, and lately some great videos have been posted on YouTube showing old television appearances.
