Biography

Xuxa (pronounced shoo-shah , Maria da Graça Meneghel, born March 27, 1963, Santa Rosa, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil) is a Brazilian television actress, singer and children’s television show host. Her various shows have been broadcast in Portuguese, Spanish, and English languages.

She was one of the biggest celebrities in Brasil and was the biggest idol among kids around Latin America in the late 80s/early 90s.

Xuxa is of German, Austrian, Italian, and Polish descent and was the first Brazilian to appear on Forbes Magazine’s list of richest artists in 1991, taking 37th place with an annual gross income of US$19 million. Xuxa has dated Pelé and the late Ayrton Senna, both regarded as important figures in Brazil. Xuxa’s personal life has often been very public and sometimes scandalous. She had a daughter, Sasha, on July 28, 1998. Her birth was televised live. Sasha studies at one of Brazil’s most expensive schools, the bilingual “Escola Americana do Rio de Janeiro” (EARJ), also known as American School of Rio de Janeiro, with a tuition of about $2,000 a month. Xuxa’s maternal habits are often criticized, particularly as she has been very indulgent with Sasha, throwing her lavish parties. One, for instance, involved a rented theme park, which cost around $1,000,000.
