    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.

    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.
