‘Y todo comenzó’…boarding our AA flight while passing through first class Allison walks ahead and starts to try to tell me something, but I am like WHAT? Finally I GET it = Daddy Yankee was sitting in first class wepaaaa! “Inmediatamente yo digo Daddyyyy y el dice Web Cityyyyy LOL”! We exchanged some words about our excitement to be going to iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina presented by Sprint. He was extremely nice and told us that we would get an interview on the red carpet!!! I got to my seat and started tweeting as I always do and happily surprised when Daddy Yankee retweeted @webcitygirls!

Our original AA flight never made it off the runway and we got re-routed via Dallas, so we totally lost contact with Daddy Yankee until our interview on the red carpet on Saturday night during the FUNtastic iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina concert.
Let me go back to Friday night where we went to a stupendous private VIP Cocktail dinner and hanged out with some team members behind iHeartFiesta like Liz Blacker, EVP | US Hispanic Strategy & Sales as well as Jeff Howard, President National Sales. We also got to network with digital and media agencies like Carla Eboli, Lisa Torres and Amy Gómez. A fabulous time but we were exhausted, so we called it in early and next day we went to Venice with good friends from hispanicad.com for breakfast, Pacific Coast Highway for pictures with our awesome Ford car who happen to be one of the sponsors at iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina. Late afternoon we ended up in a stunning vila in a Beverly Hills Hotel for fabulous brand experience with another iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina sponsor, JCPenney. They pampered us along a wonderful group of latina fashion bloggers with make-up, hairstyling, jewelry stations, beautiful pieces of clothes, food, the bubbly and lots of friendly faces from their Public Relations company. We got to take home so many gifts, it was a truly generous offer by JCPenney.
The evening came quickly and we were looking all GLAM ready to engage the celebrities. My mission was to meet Ryan Seacrest while Allison’s was to be ready on the fly to interview any celebrity we got access to. We worked it and so grateful to iHeartMedia Public Relations extraordinaire Angel Aristone, who got us VIP access against all odds, because it was a packed press room. To make the story shorter just read the amaZing tweet we got through our one on one interaction with Ryan!!! We even got time with him for a great video bit…so grateful!
