This is Bean & Chisme

We are two Chismosas who feel bad for people with bad eyebrows.

But like for real, we’re two Latinas locas with no filter. We say the things most people are afraid to say out loud! Whether we’re poppin’ up LIVE on Facebook or doing Hoodrat things, we bring the laughs all Latinos can relate to. Lil’ Chismosa and Lil’ Frijolita are sure to call you out on your pendejadas and enjoy teaching la raza a thing or two about life. Watch the show with your fellow Chismosas here.
Tune in … right now right now.
