Bozzo obtained this fame in the 1990s with her show Laura En America, a talk show which she has used many times to express her views. In her show, guests are often men who have supposedly cheated on their wives, abandoned them while pregnant, physically or mentally abused them. She has also used her program at various times to criticize both mature men and women who date much younger people. As well as set up a charity to help abused women and children in Peru, but her organization has also been plagued with rumors that she really was taking the charity money for herself.
Bozzo had a friendship with Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori when he was head of state, and she had a romance with one of Fujimori's top men, Vladimir Montesino. When Montesino was arrested after Fujimori had been given political asylum in Japan; Bozzo had to flee the country and settled in Miami, after being charged with helping Montesino steal public money. The year was 2001 and her fame increased when Telemundo decided to include her show on their United States stations. Laura's show soon began to be shown all over Latin America, and she even travelled to other countries, such as Puerto Rico, Mexico, Bolivia and Argentina to produce some of her shows from there. Because she was forced to exile, however, most of her shows shown on TV were old shows that had been taped in Peru.
Ironically, Bozzo herself found a boyfriend who is about 25 years younger than her while she was in Miami. Ultimately, she decided to return to Peru to face her charges. Because she lost her house in Peru when she moved to Miami, she has had to live in the Laura En America studio on a court ordered house arrest while her case is pending. Her boyfriend also moved to Peru to be by her side. Since she's been living in the studio after her return to her home country, she has been allowed by the court to produce her show live from there. Recently, a new court order mandated her to stop producing her show live, perhaps fearing that she might try to use the show as a way of turning public opinion in her favor.
Laura Bozzo has expressed dislike towards her fellow Telemundo star Maria Celeste Arraras, going as far as telling TV Notas magazine If Maria Celeste wants to be the first lady of Telemundo, I prefer to be the one (first lady) of the public...let her keep the (first lady of Telemundo) title!.
