juan pareja

En el plano del amor, los hombres que se separan una y otra vez tienen un profundo temor al compromiso , no quieren realmente encontrar una pareja y esto es porque el receptor de su amor ya está ocupado, en general, por su madre. Cuando son ellas las que fracasan a repetición, las que se separan varias veces, la fuente del problema es que tienen ideales que no pueden cumplirse . En palabras simples, son eternas soñadoras. Se les vuelve muy complicado “ver los límites de la realidad”. Así, buscan un hombre que no existe, que está sólo en sus mentes, y esto hace que no puedan encontrar un compañero para la vida.

Wikipedia says:

Juan de Pareja (c. 1606 in Antequera – 1670 in Madrid) was a Spanish painter, born into slavery in Antequera, near Málaga, Spain…. the son of an enslaved mulatto (mixed-race) woman and Spanish father. He was described as a “Morisco,” being “of mixed parentage and a strange color.” At the time morisco had two possible meanings. It referred both to descendants of Muslims who converted to Catholicism and remained in Spain after the Reconquest, and to the children of a Spaniard and a mulatto.

De Pareja was inherited by Velazquez and became an assistant in his painting after 1631. Velázquez later freed Pareja while they were in Rome during a trip to Italy in 1650. Around the same time Velázquez painted Pareja’s portrait, which is now held in New York. The document of his manumission is held in the state archive of Rome.

By Elizabeth Wagmeister

Charlie Sheen, Leah Remini, and Naya Rivera are set to star in Mad Families, a movie heading to Sony’s streaming service Crackle, Variety has learned.

Written by David Spade and Fred Wolf, Mad Families centers on three families — one Hispanic, one African American, one Caucasian — who find themselves sharing the same camping space on the July 4th holiday weekend and try to figure out a way to co-habitate peacefully, but eventually decide on a series of competitions to determine a winner. 

For Rivera, the flick marks the Glee alum’s first project since her recent highly-publicized novel hit shelves.

Mad Families began production last week in Los Angeles. No premiere date has been set.

The cast also includes Juan Gabriel Pareja (Goliath), Charlotte McKinney (Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser), Chris Mulkey (Whiplash), Clint Howard (Arrested Development), Chanel Iman (Dope), Barry Shabaka Henley (Better Call Saul), Lil Rel Howery (The Carmichael Show), Tiffany Haddish (The Carmichael Show), Efren Ramirez (Eastbound and Down) and Danny Mora (Chop Shop).
