Haute Secrets Miami: Raúl De Molina

Name: Raúl De Molina

The stats: Born in Havana, Cuba; lived in Miami for 35 years; currently in Key Biscayne.

Why he loves Miami: It’s multicultural and it’s on the ocean.

As the host of Univision’s top-rated entertainment news program, Raúl “El Gordo” De Molina is one the most well-known media personalities in the Hispanic world. His Emmy Award-winning show, “El Gordo y La Flaca,” which is on weekdays at 4 p.m., receives more viewers in its time slot than ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX combined.

Though he is best known for his colorful and outgoing coverage of some of the most-watched televised events (including the Latin Grammys, the World Cup and his annual New Year’s Show in Times Square), Raúl is also known for his best-selling book, “La Dieta del Gordo,” which details his 60-plus pound weight-loss and tips for healthy eating.

He’s a Miami legend, and a celebrity in his own right, and he is a regular contributor for The Huffington Post food column. So who better to offer advise on what’s haute in Miami?
