Meet Maria del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martinez Molina Boeza or as her friends call her Charo.

This morning on the 'Morning Mayhem With Tess and Heather', Tess informed Heather that she had no idea who Charo is...WHAT?!?! Choochi! Choochi! How can this be?!? I am really that old...oh wait, here is a better why to put it, she that young?!?

Born in 1951, this Spanish-American actress, comedian and flamenco guitarist found fame in the 1970's. reports...

 "Throughout the 1970s, she was a highly visible personality, appearing eight times on The Love Boat, as well as on variety and talk shows such as Donny & Marie,[25]Tony Orlando and Dawn,[26]The Captain and Tennille,[27]The John Davidson Show, The Mike Douglas Show, which she guest-hosted at least once,[28] and the short-lived Brady Bunch variety spinoff."

In the early 1980's Charo and her husband moved to Hawaii to raise their son. While on the big island, Charo opened and performed at her own dinner theater.

Speed forward to the 2000's, Charo returns State side and...

"returned to television in commercials for Sprint wireless phone service and GEICO insurance, as well as guest appearances on Hollywood Squares, a season-three stint on the celeb-reality series The Surreal Life, portraying herself on an episode of Fox Network's That '70s Show, and appearances in VH1's I Love the '70s retrospectives. On May 11, 2008, she made a guest appearance on the Latin-themed VH1 reality show Viva Hollywood"

Recently Charo has been touring the United States and made appearances in Branson Missouri and Las Vegas.

Now, if you have missed her shows, you have the chance to fully embrace and enjoy Charo on 'Dancing with the Stars'.

I only hope she works a "Choochi Choochi" into a dance for all those who remember!
