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!

Yes he has been around a long time, and there are stories about people who say bad things about him soon after having bad things happen to them. There are stories about people who met him in person who had really cool things happen to them too. I dunno, why risk bad karma by calling him something bad, the few times I have seen him on TV he has a creative way of saying your horoscope.

Walter Mercado is Puerto Rico's answer to Librace, if Librace did horoscope. Haven't seen him in a long time. I still remember his sign-off, or part of it... "Con much MUCHO AMORRRRRRR!"
