Early Life and Career Beginnings
Very little is known about Stephanie’s childhood and her life before she started to gain fame in the entertainment industry. According to several sources, she grew up with an older brother and was raised primarily by their mother. At a young age, she discovered her passion for acting, and began taking lessons in hopes of finding a breakthrough in the industry.
As a child, she began appearing in commercials and one of her first notable projects was for a commercial of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise which is also known as Best Foods in other areas. This led her to gain appearances in other commercials such as for Puma, and Benneton which is a global fashion brand which originated in Italy before finding its reach in international markets. Aside from her television appearances, she gained opportunities in print and catwalk modelling, which led to her traveling to and temporarily residing in several parts of Asia and Europe.
Transition to Hosting
Ortiz gained one of her first entertainment industry-related projects when she was hired to be the co-host of the music show “The Roof”. This led her to begin working as the host of the show “Styleyes” before she was hired by the program “American Latino TV”, which focuses on featuring culture and lifestyle for Latinos in America, as well as in other countries. The program airs in over 92% of US Hispanic homes across the US, while also broadcast in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. She also hosted the show “Vibe on Demand”, which was primarily aired in New Zealand.
She’s tried her hand at radio work too, being hired by the Spanish language radio station WXNY-FM in New York City, during a time when the station was adopting a reggaeton format, being rebranded as La Kalle meaning the street. They started airing more tropical music and Latino mixes, before another rebranding which occurred a year later. By that time, she had moved away from hosting work to try her hand at acting; one of her first acting projects was the film entitled “The Love Potion”, a romantic comedy about love and relationships following the story of four characters.
This led her to more acting work, including a role in “The Grasslands” which was released in 2011. The short film follows the story of a man who lives in The Bronx, as he tries to find out who murdered his father 20 years ago; the film became a finalist for an Academy Award in the short film category. Another project she worked on was “A Kiss of Chaos”, a thriller film about an artist who encounters two people from her past on the same day, leading her to a path of danger. The film gained a Best Showcase Feature Film Award during the Soho International Film Festival.
Other projects she’s worked on include “LES”, “Last Exit Before Toll”, and “Night at the Opera” which is based on the popular 1930s film of the same name. She also worked on “Los Blancos”, “Curdled”, and “Inside a Change” which is a film about a man who goes home during his last day of freedom before imprisonment, to throw a birthday party for his mother. The film gained good reviews and received an award during the HBO NY Latino Film Festival.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of any of Ortiz’s romantic relationships. Many sources state that she is single, though she has never been public about this aspect of her life, preferring to keep it away from the spotlight. There was a time when rumors started spreading online that she was married to journalist and author Don Lemon, who is known for his work with CNN. While the source of the rumors can no longer be found, the rumors gained a lot of attention, especially since Lemon is known to be gay and is outspoken about his orientation. The rumors were eventually shot down as there is no proof available about their relationship or a marriage occurring.
One of the reasons why there is very limited information about Ortiz is due to the lack of any accounts on major social media websites. She does not have any accounts on websites such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. There are numerous other popular people who carry the same name as hers and there are numerous profiles online named Stephanie Ortiz though they are not related to her in any way. It isn’t likely that she will reveal any more personal information as time goes on, especially with how little she has revealed despite her ongoing acting work.
