Ross Mirkarimi Hearing: Eliana Lopez Talks About the Domestic Dispute With Her Husband

Eliana Lopez's testimony was like watching a live taping of Telemundo; there were laughs, tears, boos, and applause as she testified, sometimes with a little sass, on her husband's behalf at City Hall last night. Lopez, a well-known Venezuelan soap opera star, smirked, smiled, rolled her eyes, and engaged in witty banter at the hearing.

In the end, Lopez was resolute in her loyalty toward her husband, Ross Mirkarimi, who is fighting to keep his job as the county sheriff after he pleaded guilty to false imprisonment of his wife.

“We are a family,” she said regarding obtaining the consent from Mirkarimi needed to remain in Venezuela. “All the decisions, ever that we apart, we make all the decisions together.”
