I'm full of facets that shines bright colors that makes the prism
Federica gave an interview to the publication to discuss the new legal problem faced by her and her sisters.
"Yes, we were sued for the second time, but now its demand is a pension of 255 thousand pesos a month (US $20,000) between Thalía, Ernestina, Gabriela and me. It is an amount that no pocket can truly hold. I could not pay for something like this. I am pensioned for where I'm going to get this for these things?" she expressed to TVyNovelas.
She said her sister Laura Zapata submitted invoices that are held by a company of the actress, to check grandmother's alleged expenses.
"Among the expenses presented where flooring for Laura's house, her children's dental fixups, a car insurance that is illogical, because my grandmother no longer drives".
She explained what the requirements of Doña Eva to her 95 years of age.
"Things of the most absurd; for example: the annual insurance for a van's latest model of 450 thousand pesos (US $34,000), apart from the purchase of the same, as they presumably have no means of transportation and traveling in public. Also payment of private security, cook, 24 hours a day nurses, personal assistant, monthly trips, hairdressing, tailoring, makeup artist... anyway. The most curious thing is that in the specific request that it will be Laura who will manage all the resources".
She said that she already answered the complaint and Thalía have to travel to Mexico City for this new lawsuit.
"What comes now is that we're called to declare each one separately. Thalía will have to come from New York to do this absurd processing".
According to Federica all sisters offered Doña Eva their home for them take care in turns, but now they can not approach her because they were prevented by Laura Zapata.
They have even tried talking to Zapata, but "it is impossible to do because she will put you in a rude plan and only insults us."
Considering that Mange is manipulated by the actress, since it is difficult for an elderly person to plan something.
She said that the judge asked each of the involved how high are their income to determine the amount of pension to fix.

Oh, and get ready for the next edition, because we will not stop to keep reinventing ourselves. Until next month.
Editor, People en Español
No one was more amused than Thalía, who did not mind getting wet when being photographed in an elegant old bathtub.
Gala dress and to be Barbie for a day sounds like a typical child's dream. In a photo shoot for the section Ponte bella, Thalía not only had the opportunity to live that fantasy, but to do so in an environment out of a storybook. "I'm fascinated by the pink", admits the Mexican artist.
Fine details such as colorful flowers, Ladurée macarons, tea sets and a myriad of balloons created a sweet and playful ambiance. They were fun times in that the contagious energy of the actress reigns at all times.
The stylist Irma Martínez opted for tutus, corsets and dresses with feathers and glitter to please the artist, who wanted to look like a doll.
"I want to feel like a Barbie," says Thalía. The editorial team (left) posing with the star, who ended taking home the balloons to surprise her children.
"You have to reinvent yourself to follow that instinct that says do it!"
You are known by your transformations. Why did you decide to go blonde? I have always admired that great hair. For some reason the spring inspires me to do this. I'm not born with it. As it came from within, from the need of the sun. The winter has been too long, then I want sand, I want sun, I tanned my skin tone, I want bright hair and feel the freedom that only the summer can give. On the other hand, I also think subconsciously I was closer to my mother.
So it also had an emotional component. It was like saying, "Here I am and I take these with me. Not only you are in my soul, but now I'm doing honor with the hair that we both loved". After I did it I understood why. And it was just after the second anniversary [of her death].
Where does this desire came from to experiment with styles? It is the desire to reinvent, to be vulnerable and introduce yourself in another way. You believe in your gut, that voice that says, "Do it, nothing happens if you change your hair, it's okay if you wear a blue shade, nothing happens if you wear that miniskirt that you love so much." Life is so short that you have to stay on not wanting for nothing. Do not care about anything or anyone. Nor what you say or [as] judge.
"All black and white bores me," says Thalía on her preference in colors.
However, your feminine and flirty side always emerges in your changes. I've always respected that innocence, naívety that I believe we must not lose. But I also have another duality: the daring woman, warrior, sensual, that I am not disappointed about anything. Those two things have come together and in my work. In the novels, the characters were candid, but sexy. My music is the same. A woman should feel the two sides.
What is your beauty philosophy? I am firm believer that it is a mirror of who you are inside. The grooming, the help of makeup and it's causing the first impact. But intelligence, for me, is the greatest beauty of a woman.
Anyone who has represented that for you? I love Marlene Dietrich. Obviously María Félix and Lady Di. These have been key women. [And] my sister Ernestina. It's a way to have a positive attitude towards life and to see the good side to things that makes it radiate.
With style is it born or made? Both. [We are born] with what people read about you and catalogs them immediately.
We are a race that catalogs to feel sure of ourselves. This first approach is important, but it is the reality that one is polished. I've polished and I wanted to be part of that change.
And the changes you regret? Have been millions! But I've loved them because each was made in the time when I believed 100 percent on that. I wanted to make that statement, that all talk of that lock of hair or the teddy bear coat. I never stuck with a desire to make my antics fashionable.
In what fashion wave you are now? In those little short dresses. But I'm a jeans girl. I'm with jeans and boots, denim shorts or tennis I'm happy. That is the everyday Thalía.
What do you wear when you want to look sexy? I do a smoky eyes, but also brown or copper. And I get nude lips, but glossy. I really like the [red] on [cheeks]. That is my label. And I love to wear a supersexy dress because open and closes enough!
"I have always respected the child sweetness that we all have," says the singer and actress on her style.
Shopping with Thalía
MY FAVORITE BRANDS
DOLCE & GABBANA: "The body shape like Versace and Cavalli" Thalía said. "They know how to show your waist, make a corset and [mark] your voluptuousness."
VALENTINO: "I liked his class and for their cuts."
VICTORIA BECKHAM: "The clothes are cute and simple, and the way that enhances the body is awesome!".
TOPSHOP and H&M: "I have everything and I love it," says the diva, who knows how to mix economical and expensive mix in her closet.
My newest luxury
"My husband commissioned it because they are no longer made", Thalía points out. "It took about three years". Bag model "Keepall 45" limited edition 2010 of Louis Vuitton in collaboration with Edun. Price on request. louisvuitton.com (for similar options)
My most recent bargain
LOYAL TO THE REBATES
"[Here] I get my best bargains," confesses the star on the rebates of footwear at Macy's.
What is your Achilles heel in physical terms? The rosacea around my nose. Good inheritance of my mother, who said to me: "You have a strawberry nose!". They are a mini veins that I have to put make up.
And what are the golden rules of your beauty routine? Always remove the make up. Wash your face in the morning and at night. Have creams that are designed for your skin at this stage of life. I drink water, I eat super healthy and this is reflected on the skin. It's a lifestyle, not just a cosmetic thing.
How does it change after being a mother? The comfort is first and foremost because you don't have the time to enjoy the glamour. You feel attractive and that people turn to see you, but within your comfort. No more sacrifice for fashion. There are so many options [to] be gorgeous.
How do you influence your style to your children? It has no result because even though I bought my daughter spectacular things, she has her style. What she like most about my closet is the collection of toys that I have. I Keep all my toys since I was baby. I [still] have my first Barbie.
What is the best style advice you can give? Accentuate what you think you can wear well. If you have amazing legs, then flaunt it. Play with that! The more you produce [your look] you look less and does not look natural. I like that it's effortless.

It's great to organize these events and give away baskets for mothers of newborns in hospitals, is a very great opportunity. They know how is the economy, then I'm happy to take this to surprise moms", she said.

It has perfect body ... but dreadful feet!
We found that Thalía is not perfect!
1. Thalia, 41 years old, went on stage at 9 pm and wore high heeled shoes
My feet demand freedom!
2. After 10 minutes, she remove them to dance with ease
3. Comfortably, she played several of her hits
4. Suddenly, she sat down to talk with the audience and, oh surprise! We saw on her right foot a huge ball!
Who had been told that I have six fingers?
5. When she separate her feet, we noticed the left (foot). It is also deformed!
They say that my feet are like fantasy.
It's a Hobbit feet!
