What You Will Hear In This Episode:

Valery Ortiz is one of Maxim Espanol Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People. She is also a movie and television star that is best known for her work in the popular series South of Nowhere and now in VH1’s Hit The Floor! In the show, Valery plays the role of Raquel Saldana, a single mom who is a friend to many of the girls on the Devil’s squad. More than all of her acting accolades, Valery is a kind, generous, and caring person who puts her family above everything.
