Veteran actress Lupe Ontiveros, who appeared in scores of TV shows and movies including “Desperate Housewives,” "The Goonies," "Selena,” and “As Good As It Gets,” has died. She was 69.
Lupe was the sweetest, most generous, wonderful woman ever. To let you know what a wonderful actress she was, she portrayed Yolanda Saldivar in the movie Selena. Yolanda was an evil woman. I said to myself at the time Lupe was cast that there is no way Lupe is going to be able to get that quiet nastiness that Yolanda had, but Lupe managed to pull it off. Below, is one of my favorite Lupe moments.
