Giselle Blondet (born January 9, 1964) is a Puerto Rican actress and TV host.

Early history

Blondet was born Alba Giselle Blondet, to Victor Manuel Blondet and Alba Gomez, in New York City. She has French ancestry on her father's side.

She achieved notability as an actress at around the age of 14, when she began to appear on Puerto Rico's telenovelas, going on to appear in many of Puerto Rico's soap operas of the late 1970s and the early 1980s.

In 1982 she married Luis Iglesias, a jeweler in San Juan. They had one daughter, Andrea, and were divorced in 1984. In 1986, she married the famous Bolivian actor Luis Abreu, with whom she had no children. She divorced Abreu in 1987. Around then magazines such as Vea and Teve Guía started talking of a supposed rivalry between Blondet and Millie Avilés, another young Puerto Rican actress who resembled Blondet physically.

Blondet spent the rest of the 1980s participating in different television shows, soap operas, and mini-series, as well as in some theatre plays. In 1987, her romance with actor Raúl Rosado was well publicized.

In 1989, she married Argentine producer Harold Trucco and they had daughter, Gabriela, and a son, Harold Emmanuel. The relationship encountered problems and ended in 1997. In June 1997, her career took off internationally as she became co-host Univision's international show ¡Despierta América! alongside Rafael José, Fernando Arau, Ana Maria Canseco, and Neida Sandoval. Since divorcing Trucco, she has remained single and says she wants to dedicate her free time to her children.

Later career

In 2004, Blondet published her autobiography Con los Pies en la Tierra. The following year, she left Despierta América to host a new television show about real-life tragedies, entitled Historias para Contar, but it was cancelled before it was broadcast. In 2006, she starred in a Spanish-language Christmas movie alongside José Feliciano and Raúl De Molina entitled Feliz Navidad. Blondet's movie was due to be released later that year but failed to be shown in theaters. Blondet's career may have had setbacks since she left Despierta America but she is once again hosting a reality show in Univision, called Nuestra Belleza Latina (Our Latin Beauty) (2007). The show has hints of American Idol, America's Next Top Model, and Miss Universe, and was an early hit.

In 2010, after 14 years away from acting, she starred in an episode of Mujeres Asesinas 3 as Luz Maria, alongside Cynthia Klitbo in the episode "Luz, Arrolladora".
