Do You Know Who This Person Is?

4/17/2008 11:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Walter MercadoIt's not Barbara Walters, designer Carolina Herrera or some Park Avenue society matron, but Spanish language television's resident flamboyant astrologer -- Walter Mercado! That's right, es un hombre! What's your, er, sign?!

The 76-year-old Puerto Rican sensation -- who is loved by every Hispanic grandmother from New York to L.A. for his horoscopes & flawless makeup -- is currently appearing on VH1's camptastic telenovela reality show, "¡Viva Hollywood!" Oh my stars!

Bobby Trendy, meet your long lost, lip-glossed Latin abuelita!

Why is that disgusting? I think he looks pretty damn good for a 76 year-old...much better than most of the ladies his age traipsing through Hollywood.

It's funny how TMZ barely found out about this guy, he's been a mainstay on spanish tv for MANY years. This guy is one big joke, he reminds me of Liberace, eccentric and dramatic when he reads the astrology report, and gives me the jeepers creepers. I am hispanic, and am embarrased that this person is even allowed air time.

LOL. I had totally forgotten about Walter Mercado. Ahhh his chessy way of telling the viewers their horoscopes. LOVE HIS wardrobe BY THE WAY, LOVE IT. My brother in law a fellow Boricua (Puerto Rican for you non Latinos) is embarrassed they are from the same island. But go to say that when I do catch Primer Impacto and he is on I watch it bc I like to hear the crap he says. Ohh and last time I saw he had a freaking assistant....... CLASSIC!!

I think this guy is hilarious. My mother worked with him while she was a secretary at a now defunct hispanic publication in Miami. I love how he says my sign in spanish very dramatically, "TAAAAAUUUUURRRRRROO"

Looks a bit like Sharon Gless. Great campy fella! Not sure why anyone would say he's disgusting. Every family has some sort of super sissy or bull dagger. Reality folks!
