He lost his job at Univision back in December after a huge scandal involving his ex-wife and allegations of domestic abuse. But now, Fernando del Rincón will become one of the hosts of Mega TV’s popular chisme show, “Paparazzi TV.”
But hosts Frank Cairo (pictured center right) and Alan Jacott (pictured far left, with the original team) were taken off Paparazzi to make room for Fernando.
The show premieres on Monday, April 13, and will air Monday through Friday from 7 to 8 pm ET. According to an SBS press release, the show “promises to deliver the most shocking and unbelievable news events of the day.”
The allegations of domestic abuse against Fernando by his ex-wife, former Primer Impacto anchor Carmen Dominicci, were extensively covered by Paparazzi TV. Staffers at the station tell me they’re very upset with Mega TV’s decision to hire Fernando. As one employee put it: “it’s a lack of respect towards the viewers.”
