Lisa Loves Showbiz: Shakira Accused Of Using A Fake Spanish Accent and Michael Strahan Drama At ‘GMA’

Her hips don’t lie but do her lips?

According to the New York Daily News Shakira’s accent is questionable. They say the Latin Singer who is Columbian speaks using a fake Spanish accent. This story started when a video of Shakira went viral in which she is speaking on the set of her new music video “LaBicileta” in her home town in Columbia.

Some said she switched out her native dialect to that of someone from Spain. Her twitter feed went nuts with tweets like, “Speaking with a Spanish accent in Columbia looks pretty ridiculous in my opinion.”

In her defense Shakira, may have picked her adopted cadence from her boyfriend of five years, soccer star Gerard Pique, who is from Spain. They have two kids and have lived in Spain since 2012.  All I can say is remember what happened to Madonna when she lived in London?

And the New York paper is also reporting this morning that Michael Strahan’s arrival to GMA this September is forcing people out. According to Page Six, Lara Spencer could soon be out, while George Stephanopoulos they say will focus more on politics leaving the anchor desk open for Michael.

That being said, ABC is strongly denying this, but given the debacle of Strahan’s exit at Live with Kelly, ABC does not the best track record about being up front and honest with their talent.

This rumor may have started because Lara just signed a deal to produce and create TV projects. She already has two shows on HGTV she created, “Flea Market Flip” which is in its seventh season and “I Brake for Yard Sales.”

Heather Riley, a GMA spokesperson says, “Strahan is not being groomed to replace Stephanopoulos and Lara isn’t going anywhere.”
