Laura Cecilia Bozzo Rotondo is a television talk show host, best known for hosting Spanish-language talk show Laura en America (Laura in America) that was broadcasted in the United States on the Telemundo television network. Of Italian Peruvian descent, she has hosted other talk shows under her name, including Laura en America back in the 1990s to early 2000s. Her talk shows have been compared to the American English-language Jerry Springer Show due to the fights that regularly occur as well as the sensitive subject matter routinely discussed. In 2008, a scandal erupted when it was discovered by the Peruvian press, led by important figures such as Jaime Bayly, that the shows provided by Laura Bozzo were fake and therefore did not show the true society of Peru.
In 2006, Bozzo's RAT contract with Telemundo expired after five years, so she moved her production to Televisa; production of Laura en America ended in July 2006. In October 2006, Bozzo appeared on the program Donde Estas Corazon? on the network Antena 3 from Spain, criticizing Alejandro Toledo for causing her arrest.
On July 11, 2006, just a few days before the one-year anniversary of her release from house arrest, Laura Bozzo was convicted of all the charges against her and was sentenced to four consecutive years in prison. Laura later informed a local television station, Canal 9, that she planned to use a newly enacted law in her favor and sue the Peruvian government.
