Judith Grace of Casos de Familia

Judith Grace Gonzalez is the host of a Spanish talk show named "Casos de Familia" (Family Cases). She is a former Mexican beauty queen and even competed in the 1981 Miss Universe.

But that's not the point here. This woman gets my respect for being caring and empathic about the guests on her show. It's not often you see a television personality in such a positive light. Unlike many American talk show hosts and even Dr. Nancy Alvarez (who has a similar show in the earlier time slot on Univision) she is not the headstrong type that will kick anyone out of the studio if they're not listening to her.

At a time when you have so many bad talk shows around, it's wonderful to have one like Judith that comes off as if she really cares about the ordinary people on stage.
