I giggled when I read the Ausiello shout out to SB on twitter this morning.

She was the last of the actresses to play Santana. I enjoyed her but they didn't keep her around for long unfortunately.

Doesn't she currently recur on ALL MY CHILDREN as mayor Iris Blanco? She looks so much different on CHILDREN than she does in this picture.

I guess she has pretty much said adios to AMC then. L&O: LA can go really good or the way of the CSI's spinoffs (entertaining, but nothing else).

Hey she was my favorite Santana (actually I liked them all)
Ironic that she is going to Law and Order:L.A. When she was on Santa Barbara, Cruz her potential love interest, want to L.A. Law. That was the real nail in the coffin for Santa Barbara. It might have survived Marcy Walker leaving but noway losing both Cruz and Eden. They were the show.

Noooooooooooooo! I liked Mayor Blanco! Oh well, I guess I will have to watch the sexy Ms. De Jesus on L&O.

I remember correctly, her Santana had a brief fling with C.C. Capwell as well.

Yes, I remember Santana with CC too! I am happy to hear she is joining the show- quite the cast! I'd love to see Margarita Cordova on an episode playing her mama- just like Cordova did on SB.

Miss DIVA Wanda was fired after the first episode of Law & Order:LA. No surprise there. She was also fired from Santa Barbara, because of her bad behavior on the set and her inability to get along with the other actor's. Jed Allan absolutely hated working with her. Also, the CC and Santana affair was the worst storyline during the last year of the show.
