Angela Sanclemente, 30, was arrested in a hostel in Buenos Aires’ Palermo neighborhood for drug trafficking charges. Investigators allege that Sanclemente may have been the “queen-pin” of an international operation that uses models as drug mules to move suitcases loaded with cocaine out of the Buenos Aires airport. Reportedly, she’s been disputing these charges via her Facebook page. Peep CNN’s excerpt:
Sanclemente first hit the headlines in 2000 when she was 20. She won Colombia’s prestigious Queen of Coffee beauty pageant. Victory was short-lived. Judges dethroned her after two days when they found she had been married, contrary to competition rules.That marriage — to a Barranquilla, Colombia, businessman — lasted three months in 1998. He paid for her to study journalism at Barranquilla’s university.
A university friend, who did not want to be named for fear of reprisals, said Sanclemente dropped out of college after three semesters and spent tuition fees on silicone breast implants instead. That friend said Sanclemente idolized Colombia’s then-top model Natalia Paris. She dyed her hair blond and imitated Paris’ distinctive accent to appear more like her.
Paris married a drug trafficker turned DEA informant, known as Julio Correa. He was killed in 2001 by his former associates when he returned to Colombia from Miami, Florida. Drug underworld sources said he was cut up in a meat grinder.
Sanclemente left Colombia around 2005 and headed to Mexico, where she continued to pick up modeling assignments and bit-part roles as a TV actress, according to friends.
She has quite an interesting story. Peep the full story via CNN.

In true Diddy fashion, during his pre-taped appearance of “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” he inadvertently patted himself on the back.
“I knocked on Halle’s door at a hotel,” Diddy recalled, after his acting coach urged him to jet across the country to claim his role in the movie. “And she was like, ‘What are you doing here?’ I was like, ‘Give me five minutes. Do you remember when people just looked at you as a pretty face? Remember in “Strictly Business” and no one would give you chance? I know you may think that I’m gonna be polarizing, that I’m gonna take your shot to win a Oscar.’ But I said, ‘I’m gonna help you win an Oscar. I’m gonna be believable.’ I said, ‘Give me a chance.’ ” Peep the video here.
(((He’s so damn funny. I love him.)))
How ironic? One of the more innocent stars of “Basketball Wives,” Gloria Govan, caught a “case” back in college. I first learned of this from a comment left on my blog. A visitor wrote,
Laura Said: on May 17, 2010 at 9:25 pm · “I bet Gloria doesn’t preach about the felony she was charged with a couple years ago.”
Looks like ”Laura” knew what most of us didn’t. Apparently, while Gloria was in college @ Diablo Valley College (1997) and was involved in a “cash-for-grades” scandal. Student workers in the Admissions and Records Office at DVC were allegedly changing grades for themselves as well as for others. Students allegedly paid upwards of $500 for a grade change. Although Gloria wasn’t the ring leader (that would have been a bit more gangsta, right?), she was involved. Accent Advocate has the story from ’97.
(((Honestly, the alleged felony is not really a big deal. What’s a bit amusing is that she seems to portray herself as if she’s above the other stars of the show–i.e. making negative remarks about them accepting infedility, inferring that she has the perfect relationship, blah, blah, blah. Not to mention that there are rumors circulating that her sister had an affair w/ you-know-who and her fiance is not the most faithful. Gloria, we want to like you, but we won’t you to sit down somewhere for now. Please.)))
