Eventually, she was hired as a weather girl for WNJU-TV, and later was given the opportunity to become an anchor and reporter for an affiliate of Univision.
During 1988, Daisy was hired by MTV to host “MTV Internacional”, a Spanish music show that aired both in Latin America and the United States. In 1993, she would officially become a VJ (video jockeys) for MTV, the first Latina to do so. Thus began her rise in net worth, becoming the host for shows like “House Of Style” and then later getting acting jobs for “Loving”, “Dream On” and “Sybill”. A year after becoming a VJ for MTV she started her own talk show called “Daisy”, and then also became a co-host for “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. She started hosting award shows, like the 1998 World Music Awards, 1999 Billboard Awards, and even hosted pageants like Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe. In the year 2000, she had a guest appearance in the series “Queen Of Swords”. One of Fuentes’ latest works is on “La Voz Kids”, a Spanish version of “The Voice: Kids”.
Aside from her numerous appearances on television, Daisy became well known for being seen on many magazine covers, and in television ads, working for companies like Revlon, Pantene, and M&Ms. In 2004, she released her own clothing line and around five years later she released “Daisy Fuentes Style Pro” which is her hair care line. She also signed for a licensing deal with Zyloware to make prescription eye-wear marketed as a Latina prescription eye-wear collection for women.

Was homecoming queen in high school.
And right away as soon as I started doing Pilates, about 2 to 3 weeks into it I could tell that my clothes were already fitting differently. And I felt stronger than ever. My core felt tighter than ever.
TV is my first love and I haven't disappeared from it totally.
I just thought any workout that is effective and I can do while laying down I'm signing up for.
Fits did not go over well in my house. There was a lot of discipline and obedience and you had to be very ladylike. Ladies didn't curse and I still don't curse in front of my parents.
It is nasty. You can think that you know someone in this business and you really don't. You can be stabbed in the back very easily. You can be praised very easily. It doesn't matter who you are or what you do.
I was born in Havana, Cuba and raised in Madrid, Spain. Then I moved to New Jersey.
To do a really good interview, you have to be truly interested in the person.
I love sitting down and talking to people. CNBC gave me a chance to do it in a way that I liked. They gave me a chance to also develop the skills to learn from my mistakes.
I love to feel glamorous. I love to have other women feel glamorous.
I was an accidental model. One day I was asked to me a model by a neighbor who was short on models. Then I got into TV.
I believe my customer knows her style and knows how to mix and match your style.
You are not alone with a guy until you are a proper age. You don't go to certain levels with men until you are married or you have a certain relationship.
I think I would have been so much in awe of the movie set, the people and what everybody's job was, that I don't know if I would be able to concentrate on the character.
You have got to pay attention, you have got to study and you have to do your homework. You have to score higher than everybody else. Otherwise, there is always somebody there waiting to take your place.
I just smoked a Cohiba the other day. It was great. You have to appreciate everything that cigar is.
When I was a junior, boys were allowed to come visit me at the house. We could sit on the porch until about 8 o'clock at night; that's when it started getting dark. That was it.
I thought that I was going to have to pay them to do what I wanted to do, that was how much fun I was having. You're 20 years old and you're hanging out with rock stars and going to fabulous parties, and then you talk about it!
