MIAMI — The North Miami home of former Telemundo talk show host Laura Bozzo, aka the Latin Jerry Springer, is about to be auctioned on the proverbial courthouse steps.

The crib at 11420 North Bayshore Drive, in the Sans Souci Estates, is going up for auction on the Miami-Dade County foreclosure website April 14 after mortgage lender Wells Fargo won a judgment against the woman who hosted such Latin TV staples as Laura en America and Laura.

Court records show Bozzo, whose show about family strife, affairs, sex and scandals now airs on Televisa in Mexico, stopped making payments on her $1.6 million mortgage in December 2008.

Since then, the amount she owes the bank has grown to $2.5 million, according to court files.

Bozzo, 62, bought the Intracoastal home in 2002 for $2.2 million.

At the time, Peruvian Bozzo was at the height of her popularity in the United States.

But her career went south in the mid-2000s when prosecutors at home in Lima accused her of taking millions to use her show to discredit opponents of then President Alberto Fujimori.

She spent more than two years under house arrest, and her career never recovered fully.

It’s not believed she returned to Miami since her arrest, and recent photos of the property show outdated furniture and overgrown vegetation in the yard.

We reached out to Laura via her website but there’s been no response.
