Charo admitted that she found Hilaria Baldwin’s Spanish heritage scandal “funny”.

The 70-year-old Spanish-American actress-singer told Page Six that she had spent her entire life trying to improve her English so as not to understand why Baldwin, 37, was “obsessed” with her Spanish accent.

“I spend my whole life trying to speak English like you,” Charo told the outlet. “I was hoping [be] a sophisticated American and I was born in Murcia, Spain where they have a strong Castilian accent. ”

“It’s probably Hilaria’s obsession,” Charo thought. “I want to speak the best English because after so many years in America nobody knows what I’m talking about. ”

Baldwin was blown up in December when it was discovered that she was not actually born in Spain – as she had implied – and instead was born and raised in Boston, Mass.

“In the case of Hilaria, she must be [so] obsessed with everything Spanish – tradition, flamenco – that she really entered that education and that she managed to do it very well indeed, ”Charo said to himself.

Baldwin has also been criticized for allegedly faking a Spanish accent. The mother-of-five’s bilingual accent fluctuated noticeably over the years when she made appearances on television.

After the news broke, Alec Baldwin’s wife also revealed that her real name was Hillary.

“Yes, I am a white girl, my family is white… Europe has a lot of white people. Ethnically, I am a mixture of many, many things, ”she said on social media.

Charo said she laughed at the situation. “There is nothing wrong if it makes her happy. I think it’s funny. In my opinion, it’s just funny, ”she said.

In an interview with The New York Times, Baldwin attempted to correct some of what she says are misconceptions about how she presented herself.

“The things that I have shared about myself are very clear,” Baldwin said. “I was born in Boston. I spent time in Boston and Spain. My family now lives in Spain. I moved to New York when I was 19 and have lived here ever since. For me, I feel like I spent 10 years sharing this story over and over again. And now it seems that is not enough. ”
