Xuxa Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Maria da Graca Xuxa Meneghel was born on 27 March 1963, in Santa Rosa, Brazil, of part Italian descent, and is a singer, actress, and businesswoman, best known for her various Spanish, Portuguese, and English shows. She is a two time winner of a Latin Grammy award, but is also known as the “Queen of the Shorties”. All of her efforts have helped put her net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Xuxa? As of late-2016, sources estimate a net worth that is at $1 billion, mostly earned through success in entertainment and business. She rose to prominence when she became part of “Xou da Xuxa” and is one of the first Brazilians to appear as part of Forbes Magazine’s richest artists. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will increase.

At the age of 15, Xuxa was discovered by a modelling agency which would start her career as she then appeared in various men’s and fashion magazines in Brazil as well as in the US. She appeared in Playboy, and was also known for her love affair with soccer legend Pele. In 1984, she was hired by Ford Models.

In 1983, her net worth was increasing at a fast rate, and she was offered a television role in the children’s program “Cluba de Crianca” – during this time, she taped during the weekends and modeled in New York City during weekdays. In 1986 she then received an offer to host a national children’s program, and her following was starting to increase as her program had an estimated viewership of 33 million, helping to significantly raise her net worth. Her show had skits, jokes, dancing and singing, and although “Xou da Xuxa” would end in 1992, it was followed up by another program called “Xuxa” which would continue to run for another six years. The popularity of “Xou da Xuxa” would lead to other opportunities for her, and in 1991 another show entitled “El Show de Xuxa” would become a hit.

She would release her first Spanish album entitled “Xuxa 1” which sold well. “El Show de Xuxa” also had an increasing viewership, and she would continue filming for the show until 1993. She was penned by New York Magazine as the “Latin American Madonna” and was then recognized by Forbes as one of the world’s highest paid entertainers. Her success in North and South America and Europe would continue to expand over the next few years, especially when she hosted an English show called “Xuxa”, although it did not find the same popularity and was cancelled after a season. The show would, however, be sold to other countries though she decided to stop working on her international career.

In 1994, she returned to Brazilian TV with “Xuxa Park”, and it helped create “Planeta Xuxa” which stayed on air until 2002. In 2001, the “Xuxa Park” set would be destroyed by a fire and it would lead to another show called “Xuxa no Mundo da Imaginacao”, however, this show had lower ratings. Four years later, “TV Xuxa” would debut as a daily morning show for kids of all ages, and it became very popular. The show had numerous international celebrities as guests and it would continue to run until 2014, when Xuxa had to stop television work due to sesamoiditis which effected her foot and therefore mobility. However, she recently signed a contract with Rede Record in2015 and is currently working on a new show.

For her personal life, Xuxa has never married, but it is known that she has a daughter with actor Luciano Szafir. She dated Pele in the 1980s and later Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna. In 2012, she revealed that Michael Jackson once courted her, and one of her recent relationships has been with actor Junno Andrade.

The incident happened in the same week the Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense crashed in Colombia, killed 76 people. Similarly, Angélica (who had a similar career focused on children and replaced her as a host in Clube da Criança (1983)) also survived a plane crash with her fiancee Luciano Huck and their three sons in 2015.
3 Had never done a live television show prior to "Xuxa Meneghel".
4 In the night of her Rede Record show "Xuxa Meneghel"'s premiere, both 'Patricia Abravanel' and Danilo Gentili spoofed Xou da Xuxa (1986) in their respective shows. A replica of the spacecraft was constructed for Abravanel's performance, in which she performed Xuxa's songs herself.

15 Caused initial controversy after changing the tone of her shows, from a more mature genre of Xuxa Park (1992) and _Planeta Xuxa (1997)_ to a more educational premise focusing on a youngest audience with _Xuxa no Mundo da Imaginação (2002)_.

#Quote
1 [on being brunette for a cosmetics commercial ad] I always dreamed of being a brunette like Snow White.
2 [on Luciano Szafir's family] Nobody is beautiful in that family. Only Luciano.
3 [at the press conference that announced her a Rede Record' newest cast member] When I was getting ready to come here, I was thinking, 'It's really hard, ain't it? To say that now I'm at Record [TV]. So many years unable to even say its name. [After] 29 years at Globo, it's hard. Now after I walked through there and saw the [Record's] emblem I thought, 'man, I'm really at Record now'.
4 [on Xuxa (1993)] "When I got here, the first day, I was freaking out. English is difficult. They have nicknamed me 'But why,' because I keep asking about the rules of the language."
5 [on children] If you wanna make me happy, let me be so among children.
6 [on Ayrton Senna] If that soul mate term really exists, mine was there in front of me. Some day we'll meet once again.
7 [on her professional and personal breakup with Marlene Mattos] I lived in a easy and protected world. But without Marlene, the "Barbie" here now speaks by herself.
8 in my house even he has to smile." (refering to a picture of a smiling Jesus which hangs in her house.) "Kisses Kisses
