As a comedian, Vale was one of the main celebrity impersonators in the comedy show La Parodia, from 2000 to 2005, but she chose to leave the show because she wanted to take some weeks off. From 2005 to 2006, she performed in El Privilegio de Mandar (The Privilege to Command), which was a parody of an earlier soap opera that had stared Adela Noriega and was titled El Privilegio de Amar (The Privilege to Love). Because telenovelas are wildly popular throughout the Hispanic world, they are very profitable, even when they don't rate so well, so when as of 2006, La fea más bella became the number one Univision TV program according to 2006 Nielsen ratings, Vale became looked upon as a guarantee to success by many producers, and it is speculated that this success may open the door for greater things to come. Vale is featured as one of the eight subjects on the cover of People en Español's "Los 50 Más Bellos" 2007 yearly issue and on the July 2007 monthly issue, reportedly more because of her recent popularity than because of her overall lengthy career (as many people in the business have stated that she is finally getting the international attention that she has come to deserve after laboring her talents so long and having very little ethical and commercial success). In April 2007, People en Español announced that Vale would make a special guest appearance on "Ugly Betty", in which she'd reprise her Lety role in the episode "A Tree Grows in Guadalajara," but instead she played a Lety look-alike named Angélica, who was a dental assistant, in the season finale. From 1982-1986 her family was banned from Televisa due to the launch of the independent production "LUPITA" on the rival TV Azteca network in which she played the title role.
All the family members were blacklisted until 1986, year in which Ernesto Alonso intervened on their behalf. He was instrumental in getting the ban lifted, allowing the family to return to work on Televisa's productions. Singing career Like her mother, Vale is also a singer and has performed on the soundtrack for La fea más bella. She did several notable impersonations of another singer, Verónica Castro on La Parodia doing parodies of Castro's show, Mala noche... no!.
Vale is also listed in that program's credits as a singer of its theme song. She has also done many impressions of singers Shakira, Thalia, and Laura Leon among others while she worked on Soñadoras and Amigas y Rivales; she also used some of these once more in "La Parodia". In 2007, after the finale of "La Fea Mas Bella", she sang one of the theme songs for the hit soap opera during an appearance on "El Show de Cristina". Angalica Vale has been heavily persecuted by paparazzi from the early 90's onward, with a special focus on her love life. In the early stages of her life, she was rumored and confirmed as the girlfactor Alejandro Ibarra, with whom it was also rumored that she was engaged to and would soon marry. However this wasn't the case, and they split around the time that she was cast for the role of Margarita in Bendita Mentira.
This attention didn't surprise Vale, who as a young girl had seen the toll that paparazzi's attentions had taken on her mother and father's marriage when, according to tabloids, her father had led a double life with a woman in Texas. In 2005, after the death of her father, this attention reocurrently bothered her because she was constantly pestered by questions about her late father's testament and concernss about what would correspond to her father's young 'spouse'. She was overwhelmed to the point that she called for a meeting with all major television stations in Mexico and had them ask away, saying that if they didn't ask then, they would never get answers because she planned on closing that chapter in her life because it was very painful to talk about something so private. Later on she was also linked to singer Jose Luis Figueroa, son of also singer Joan Sebastian, during a time when he was still involved with Ninel Conde, (considered the hottest women in the world by Latin American press), but Angélica Vale denied these reports. Soon after, Ninel and Jose Luis broke up, and he stated it was because Ninel was too "thin" for his likes. Vale was also targeted much by claims that she liked to get involved with married men, and a story was published in 2006 about her having caused the separation of a family, because her then-current-boyfriend had filed for divorce and his children had to live with seeing their father with another women in public. She also denied these allegations by claiming that the divorce had been filed one year prior to their relationship, and that his marriage was childless. Other rumors that have followed surrounding her love life have been curiously sparked by a family friend, Cristina Saralegui, host of "El Show de Cristina", who, when interviewing the cast of "La Fea Mas Bella", stated that she thought that 'Don Fernando' (Jaime Camil) and 'Doña Lety' (Angélica Vale) had really fallen in love, but she was cut-off by the also present Angélica María, who changed the subject. Angélica María also sparked rumors revolving around her daughter because, of late, she has made a habit of saying that she is waiting impatiently for her only child to make her a grandmother. Despite the constant intrusion into her life by paparazzi, Angélica Vale has managed to maintain a lot about her life in secret, and thus this has caused thirsty paparazzi to fabricate stories on her behalf. She has also had breast reduction.
